Well Fed Buff: Night Dragon's Breath Dip


Every Thursday, Well Fed Buff will be serving up the tastiest dishes to boost your HP and stats, just in time for your weekend gaming.

Night Dragon's Breath Dip was first discovered in Felwood. Dwarves, beware: Despite the obvious health and mana boost from the Night Dragon's Breath, this addicting dip can have a negative long-term impact to the basic stats of those who tend to overindulge.

The mats
1 10-oz. package frozen, chopped broccoli
1 package mild Mexican Velveeta
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
Tortilla chips

The process
Low heat and patience are vital in creating Night Dragon's Breath Dip. Craftsmen from across Azeroth and the Outland claim to have uncovered the advantages to combining the mats in a specific order, but we've found that as long as all the mats make it into the trade window and care is taken during the combine, the attempt will be successful. Breaking up the cheese into smaller stacks and defrosting the broccoli can speed the process.

(More on this recipe and off-spec variants ahead!)

Take care to use low heat and stir frequently, to prevent the cheese from burning and sticking to the bottom of the pan. A pan with a moderate to high FR from a no-stick coating can help. The dip is ready when small bubbles appear on the surface, much like a pancake that's ready to flip. This recipe can also be created in a crock pot, although it will take a very long time (and particularly long if you don't first defrost the broccoli). It's most easily consumed when served in individual bowls for each group member.

A skillup point is guaranteed for each batch of Night Dragon's Breath Dip you create without burning some cheese at the bottom of your pan. Stir, stir, stir -- and don't go afk while cooking this one!

Off-spec variations
Melee classes tend to scoff at the small mana and health returns of this recipe and often prefer a variant involving Dragonbreath Chili. Simply substitute a can of chili (any type, from any faction) in place of the broccoli – loads of +sta from this spec. Mana-hungry healers sometimes substitute frozen, chopped spinach for the broccoli, but most melee types will turn up their noses at this variant.

Be forewarned: Night Dragon's Breath Dip is labeled as Bind on Pickup -- but in fact, this item is frequently ninja'd and is notorious for being misdirected during master looting. Do your best to avoid lag spikes while looting, and give loot assignments your full attention in order to avoid mishaps. Position carefully to avoid splash damage, and expect some basic repair costs for your tabard afterwards.
