Poisoned meat is used in Barbarian Assault to make the Penance King vomit the required items to damage him.
They can be found in the dispenser in the western corner of the chamber, slightly north of the item deposit. 5 are taken at a time, and a player can only carry up to 10 at any time. Left-clicking the poisoned meat drops it at the player's current location. If the Penance King eats it, he will vomit the items the player's role requires.
