Upon dying, nearby enemy Minions drop 1 Fresh Meat and enemy Heroes drop 20 Fresh Meat. Fresh Meat can be picked up to gain 0.5 Attack Damage per Meat. The Butcher loses 15 Fresh Meat upon dying. Quest: Collect 200 Fresh Meat. Reward: Gain an additional 25% increased Attack Speed. Heroes continue to drop 10 Fresh Meat, Minions no longer drop Fresh Meat, and Fresh Meat is no longer lost on death.
(Patch June 13, 2017) Note:Minions that die near The Butcher will now always drop Fresh Meat stacks.; Fresh Meat earned via Hero Takedowns, and collected while piloting the Garden Terror or Dragon Knight, will now correctly increment The Butcher’s Fresh Meat stacks.
(Patch April 25, 2017) Note:Victuals will no longer stop functioning after completing Fresh Meat quest.
(Patch April 4, 2017) Note:Hold ALT and click the Fresh Meat Ability icon to notify allies of The Butcher's current number of Meat stacks.
