Where to find the Ironforge meat vendor in WoW Classic

The meat vendor in Ironforge is named Sognar Cliffbeard, and he can be found patrolling the Military Ward in the city. To seek him out, head to the Military Ward and look around the central burning embers in the middle of the ward. Sognar Cliffbeard moves in a constant circle around the Military Ward and only stops when he’s spoken to.

Why Alliance Hunters should get familiar with the Ironforge meat vendor 

Sognar Cliffbeard is a particularly valuable NPC for Alliance Hunters (Dwarves and Night Elves) as they need to stock up on meat to feed their pets. In Classic WoW, the varying types of Hunter pets have different diets, and many of them need to be satiated with meat from time to time to keep them happy. Keeping your pet happy with meals is a surefire way to make sure your DPS doesn’t fall off and is a critical piece of management when playing a Hunter. 

Almost every Hunter pet in the game (with the exception of Bats, Turtles, Gorillas, Crabs, Tallstriders, and Wind Serpents) will benefit from eating meat.
