Eating a Savory Deviate Delight randomly has one of these two effects:

  • Flip Out - a buff that changes the character model into a ninja for 60 minutes. The ninja is a human dressed entirely in black with a black bandana across its face. (This transformation looks very similar to a human dressed in the Defias Leather armor set, with a black bandana rather than a red bandana)
  • Yaaarrrr - this buff transforms the character into a human pirate for 60 minutes.

In earlier patches, Savory Deviate Delight also bestowed a number of other possible effects, including "fake death," a short-term Fear effect, and a rapid-cast buff. Some players misused the Savory Deviate Delight's Fear-like effect to glitch their way past closed gates such as those in Blackwing Lair.

Druids, Shamans, and Warlocks lose the effect when they change forms.

For non-humans, certain emotes change while Flip Out or Yaaarrrr are in effect. These include /cry, /laugh, /cheer, /chicken, /yawn, /train, /silly, /dance and /sigh which are all replaced by the human versions.

Patch changes
