How to skip Snacks for Stonehead in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Tell the giant he needs to go on a diet.

We get it, you’re a busy person, and you don’t have time to do everyone’s work in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. Stonehead doesn’t understand this, though, and he’ll ask you to fetch him a ton of food in the Snacks for Stonehead quest.

Sure, you could be a pal and find him the Gooey Bug Bites, Ash Crisps, Mirror Candy, and Light Snack he asks for, but there’s a quick workaround to this, thanks to a tiny bit of exploitation.

While you’re interacting with Stonehead, he will pick you up and attempt to throw you with his right hand. Before he tosses you across the map, press Alt+F4 to exit the game. Once complete, log back in with the same character. You will be on the other side of Stonehead, and he will still be hungry, but you can continue on your journey through Revendreth.

Keep in mind that this may not work forever. Blizzard has varying priorities with their hotfixes, and if enough people use this trick, they might patch the quest or Stonehead to force you into completing his snack quest. Fortunately, if this trick stops working, you won’t need to go very far to find all the food he demands. When you go back to Stonehead to turn in the quest, he will pick you up, but you won’t turn into a lawn dart if you have all his requested snacks.
