Warsong Gulch 03/02/09

Today's daily battleground was Warsong Gulch. I did it on Wranngar and we won the second one I was in. We lost the first one 1/3 but won the second one 3/0. The first one was not for lack of trying. It was a battle the whole time but part of the problem was the people fighting in the middle. They weren't defending our flag, they weren't trying to get our flag back and they weren't trying to get the Horde flag. They were just fighting in the middle. While that was keeping the Horde occupied it was not enough because there were 2 rogues in their flagroom and every time someone tried to get the flag they got ghanked. We finally lost that one and I joined another. We did a lot better in that one, it took a little while but we owned them. That got my daily done which I turned in for 13g23s and 1241 extra honor which is a lot more than we got for winning the battle. I also fought in 5 Eye of the Storm battles, 3 wins and 2 losses. The major problem in most the battles was flagtards. They were more worried about getting the flag than they were about getting and holding some bases so we could win. I forgot to check but I wouldn't be surprised to find out it is EoS holiday weekend this weekend. The 3 we won were a struggle and usually we dominate in there so something is going on.

I did all my daily's for the Knights of the Ebon Blade today, From Their Corpses, Rise!, No Fly Zone, Intelligence Gathering, Leave Our Mark, Shoot 'Em Up and Vile Like Fire!. I got about 80 gold for those which is good, I need to build up my reserves again. I only did one daily for The Kalu'ak and decided it is just not worth it. I did Preparing for the Worst and then wrote them off. I got what I was after from them and I am not going to continue to do their quests for 5 gold a piece.

The daily cooking quest today was Mustard Dogs!. This requires running around Dalaran looking for Wild Mustard. You need to pick 4 of them and that took me about 5 minutes. Then I needed to cook them up with 4 Rhino Dogs and put them in the basket provided. That presented the problem as I only had 3 pieces of rhino meat and no Rhino Dogs in the guild bank. I headed over to Sholazar Basin to hunt some rhino's for meat. I hunted for about 20 minutes and got 21 pieces which would allow me to complete the quest and also have a full stack of meat in the bank. I completed the quest and turned it in for 2 Dalaran Cooking Awards, a Small Spice Bag and 9g93s. My Small Spice Bag had 5 Northern Spices in it. I am not sure why I got 2 Dalaran Cooking Awards today as part of the payoff. I didn't yesterday, I got one plus one in the Small Spice Bag. Seems kind of odd. Maybe some quests pay more than others. Anyway I used my 2 Dalaran Cooking Awards to buy 20 more Northern Spices, now I have 117. They stack in 100's, I was curious about that.

I went and saw Old Man Barlo, (40,59) at Silmyr Lake in Terokkar Forest, to see what he had for me. Today he wanted me to head to Stormwind and take care of Crocolisks in the City for him. I portal'd to Stormwind and got to fishing in the canal outside the Mage District. I got a Baby Crocolisk on my 15th cast. I flew to Blasted Lands and then rode over to the Dark Portal and went through that. On the other side, in the Outlands, I flew to Shattrath then flew over and turned this in for my Bag of Fishing Treasures. That had 7g21s1c, 3 Elixirs of Water Walking and a Mariner's Log. Not a great haul today but I can really use the Elixirs of Water Walking so it was worth it.
