I got back on Wranngar tonight and did some battlegrounds. I did 2 Strand of the Ancients, both losses, and 3 more Eye of the Storm, 2 wins and 1 loss. The group in Strand of the Ancients was pretty bad in both battles, we got slaughtered. In the Eye of the Storm we had a good group for 2 of the battles and then a pretty poor one for the third battle which we lost. In the first 2 battles we ended up with 4 towers at the end of the battle. In the 3rd battle we started out with 3 towers and ended up with 1. We had 2 people defending that tower, 10 people trying for the flag, 2 people fighting on the road and one AFK. All in all a pretty bad group. On the plus side I got a Black Battlestrider tonight with some of the marks of honor I have. I really like it. It looks way too small for me, like a compact mount :).
I played Wranngar for awhile and did the daily battleground which was Eye of the Storm. We won the first one I was in pretty easily, we had 4 towers at the end. When the daily's rolled over I did the daily cooking in Dalaran which was Convention at the Legerdemain. I grabbed 4 Chilled Meat out of the guild bank and cooked them up then I headed over to the wine and cheese shop and grabbed a jug of wine. I turned that in and got my 9g93s, Dalaran Cooking Award and Small Spice Bag. My Small Spice Bag had 3 Northern Spices, 3 Old Spices and 3 Baby Spice. Not a bad haul. The important thing is I got the Dalaran Cooking Award I needed to get Recipe: Fish Feast. I had gotten 10 Northern Spices off the auction house for 33 gold earlier so I had about 18 northern spices all together. I cooked up 10 Fish Feast which I will use in the battlegrounds when I come back on later. I did the daily cooking from The Rokk, (61,15) in Shattrath, which was Revenge is Tasty and the daily fishing from Old Man Barlo, (40,59) at Silmyr Lake in Terokkar Forest, which was Crocolisks in the City. I got the usual rewards from those, nothing special. I also did the Achievement Critter Gitter. I did that on some Penguins in North Rend. It was quick and easy and I got it out of the way. Don't let the Maul in my hand fool you, no Penguins were injured in the completing of this Achievement. All I have left for my Chef title is to cook 2 more recipes to get though stage 2 of North Rend Gourmet, then 15 more to complete stage 3. I picked up 3 20 slot Frostweave Bags at the auction house for 93 gold each for a total of 279 gold. That is about 155 gold less for 3 than the 425 gold one 20 slot Primal Mooncloth Bag was going for when they first came out. I sent them to Wrangar to replace his 16 slot bags.
