I played Brieanna for a little while today, I got her to level 36. I went to Ironforge and got training for me and my pet. I still have 7 more points until I have 300 cooking skill, then I can see how high I can get my cooking. I need to work on my fishing some more too, I think it is 151 now. I think my skinning was at 269 when I logged off today so that is coming along well. I dropped mining (I had forgotten how much I hated mining) and took up herbalism so I need to level that, it is at 1 now :(. I was a little bored leveling today so I played Wranngar most of the time.
I passed 50,000 lifetime kills on Wranngar. I was in Alterac Valley, of course, when I hit this milestone. I fought in 16 AV's tonight, 8 wins and 8 losses. Some of the battles were pretty good and some were not so good. We had a few turtles, a couple directly related to holding SHGY which is never a good idea. We won a couple battles on reinforcements which is unusual for the Alliance, usually the Horde win on reinforcements. I didn't care either way, I have 100 marks from each battleground which is the maximum you can carry (I got the last 4 I needed from WSG this morning) and I have 75,000 honor which is the most honor you can carry, so I am in it for the kills now. I finished the daily battleground I had this morning on my second battle. When the daily's rolled over and I got today's daily it was AV again :). All in all I did 16 AV's and 3 WSG, 1 win and 2 losses. Now I am setting my sights on 75,000 lifetime kills.
Today's daily battleground was Arathi Basin but I still had the one for AV from a few days ago so I decided to do that one instead. I was on Wranngar. I fought in 4 battles, all losses, with some of the worst players I have played with in awhile. There is really not much to say about what happened except we were plagued with AFK and the mentality of the majority of players was around the 7 year old level I think. In the best (closest) battle we had we managed to make it to FWGY. In the other 3 battles we never got past IBT. People were turtling in DB in all 4 battles, anywhere from 25-35 people in DB, most AFK. I am going to try to get this done again in the morning and see if there is a better quality of players on at that time.
I did some instances tonight on Brieanna, Wranngar and Gomorra. The first one I did was on Brieanna and it was SM Armory. I went in with a group of 4 other people and we didn't really have any problems at all. I didn't have the quests for there yet but the XP was good. After that I had to AFK for awhile and when I got back 2 of the people I had been grouped with were still trying to run the SM Library but everyone had left group except them. I logged over to Wranngar and ran them through there. After I finished that up I saw someone in LFG looking for help with the Epic Warlock mount quest, the Dreadsteed, in Dire Maul. I logged over to Gomorra and gave them a hand with that. We had a pretty good group going there too even though there were only 4 of us to start out. We picked up a 5th for the end where we fight all the demons and that is where you really need a full group. We were able to complete that and they got their Dreadsteed. All in all not a bad night.
