Food in a player's inventory.

Food items are items used to raise pets into mounts. Upon collection or purchase, these items can be found under the Food category of the player's inventory or in the Quick Inventory action drawer in the Stable.

How To Obtain A Food Item[]

Feeding Your Pet[]

You can feed a food item to the pet of your choice from the Stable's Quick Inventory action drawer (direct link), which contains all food and saddles stored in your item inventory. To feed a pet, first click on the food item. The image of the food will turn light purple and a second image of the item will follow your pointer around the screen. Then, place the pointer over the pet you wish to feed and click. The image of the pet you are about to feed will be highlighted with a purple border and a star icon. To cancel the action, click on the image of the food you are currently using again.

Under each pet is a Food Bar, which fills by a certain amount each time the pet is fed depending on whether or not the food is it's preference. See Food Preferences for information on how quickly the Food Bar fills up based on the type of food a pet is fed.

These pets have or do not have Food Bars matching their growth status (from left to right: unfed, partially fed, fed to a mount, and re-hatched).

When the Food Bar reaches 100%, the pet becomes a mount and disappears from your pet Stable. It can be replaced by hatching another egg of the same type. Pets that have been raised to mounts but not re-hatched are shaded grey. After a pet becomes a mount, it still continues to count towards the Beast Master achievement.

Hatching a second pet of the same type replaces the greyed out pet image with a full-color image. This re-hatched pet does not have a Food Bar and cannot be fed because you already have a mount of this type.

An alternate (and quicker) method to change a pet into a mount is to use a saddle, which is available in the Market for the price of 5 gems or as a daily check-in prize. Upon using a saddle on a pet, the pet will automatically be turned into a mount.

Types of Food[]

There are ten types of food that can be fed to pets. Each type can be bought for 1 gem and can be sold for 1 gold in the Market. Different types of pets may prefer different types of food. Pets hatched with a Magic Hatching Potion do not have any food preferences.

Food Formats[]

There are different forms in which food is displayed in.

  • Cake
  • Candy
  • Pie
  • Normal Version

During some special events, there will be festive varieties of the normal food (cake or candy or pie). These special foods have different names and images than the normal ones but are used in the same way, and have the same effect. When a variety of special food becomes available, the special food will replace the normal food, and can be obtained in the same way for the duration of it's availability. In addition to that, when a variety of special food becomes available, each player will be automatically given one of each of type of that variety.

Each variety of special food also has ten types, corresponding to the ten normal types of food, as shown in the table below.

The special foods are available at the following events:
