Battlegrounds 11/08/09

I did some battlegrounds on Wranngar today. It didn't take me long to remember why I stopped doing battlegrounds... The daily battleground today was Call to Arms: Isle of Conquest. It took us 6 battles to get a win, it was some pretty poor playing and a lot of AFK. It is obvious Blizzard is doing nothing about the AFK problem as it is worse now that it ever was. If they are trying to do something about it they are failing horribly.

Isle of Conquest was a new battleground to me, not even sure when it showed up but it was today's daily. It seems to be similar to Wintergrasp where you have a keep you try to defend while trying to get into the other sides keep. There are bases and a workshop to fight over too. More bases gives you more reinforcements. One difference is there is a General in the keep you can kill to win the game before the reinforcements run out, so that is another way to win it. Not that we were doing much winning, we lost 5 and won 1. And even the one we won was really close, as a matter of fact we were losing on reinforcements when we killed the Horde's General. Anyway I finally got it done and collected 19g86s and 1241 bonus honor.

I fought in one Alterac Valley today too, it was a win. I had nothing to do with that though, I got in at the end of it and was on my way to Frostwolf Keep when we won it, I didn't even see the enemy.

I fought in 2 Eye of the Storm battles and they were just sad. A lot of Flagtards in those 2 battles. When you only have one tower, which you are in the process of losing, you don't need to have 12 of the 15 people on your team at the flag. Also when the battle starts you don't need to have 3/4 of your team run to the flag. Towers win over the flag every time but a lot of people are just too stupid to realize that. The flag is to EoS what Glav is to AV, something to distract the stupid. Nothing has changed in EoS...

Infused Mushroom Meatloaf and Dangerously Delicious 11/8/09

I got on Wranngar again and did my daily cooking and fishing. Today the cooking was Infused Mushroom Meatloaf and the fishing was Dangerously Delicious.

As usual I did the cooking first. I got my 4 Infused Mushrooms really fast, one right after the other. It seemed like no one was doing it. I ran over to the guild bank and grabbed 2 Chilled Meat to make my meatloaf. Once I had that cooked up I went to see Orton Bennet upstairs at Curiosities and Moore. I gave him his meatloaf and he gave me 9g93s, a Dalaran Cooking Award and a Small Spice Bag with 4 Northern Spices, 3 Baby Spice and another Dalaran Cooking Award in it. Not a bad haul today.

From there I was off to Wintergrasp to catch some Terrorfish for the daily fishing. It took me 28 casts to get the 10 Terrorfish I needed. That is a lot for this quest. Once I finally had the 10 I needed I headed back to see Marcia Chase (53,65), by the fountain in Dalaran to hand them in. She gave me a Bag of Fishing Treasures with 8g50s34c, 3 Pygmy Oil, a Battered Jungle Hat and 4 Deviate Fish. Enough with the Deviate Fish already, I got more than I ever wanted and that's with vendoring them for the past couple months. Not a great haul today on this one.

I am in the process of doing the daily battleground too. It is Call to Arms: Isle of Conquest today and the Alliance seem to be as clueless as ever in there. It is my first time in there so I really didn't know what was going on but I am pretty sure going AFK in the keep is not how we are going to win one. I will have a battleground post later. I am going to continue to try and win one. We are currently 3 losses and 0 wins.

Gomorra daily's 11/7/09

I decided to get back on and do the daily cooking and fishing on Gomorra. They were Convention at the Legerdemain for the cooking, a really easy one, and Monsterbelly Appetite for the fishing, another easy one. I hadn't been on Gom for awhile so I figured I would give him some time and make a little gold while I was at it. Both these quests only took me about 10 minutes.

I did the cooking first as usual. I grabbed 4 Chilled Meat from the guild bank and made my Northern Stew, then I headed over to One More Glass, the wine and cheese shop in Dalaran, for a Jug of Wine. I found the Jug of Wine as soon as I walked in the door so all I had to do then was run across the road and see Arille Azuregaze, the bartender at The Legerdemain. I gave him the stew and wine and he gave me 9g93s, a Dalaran Cooking Award and a Small Spice Bag with 3 Northern Spices in it. Not a great haul.

I was off to Un'upe after that to catch a Bloated Monsterbelly. When I got to Un'upe I flew southeast to the icebergs out there and found a Monsterbelly school right off. I got my Bloated Monsterbelly on the 3rd cast which wasn't too bad. I got the Severed Arm out of it and headed back in to shore to take the flight path back to Dalaran so I could hand it in to Olisarra the Kind, (36,37) the Grand Master First Aid Trainer in the Magus Commerce Exchange. She is going to try to reunite the arm with the fisherman. Good luck. Anyway she gave me a Bag of Fishing Treasures for my trouble. When I opened it, it had 8g9s33c, 5 Pygmy Oil, 2 Pieces of Worthless Orange Glass and 3 Deviate Fish in it. Not a great haul on this one today either. There are still a lot of good rewards to be had from the daily fishing so I will keep plugging away at it.

Just Wandering Around 11/8/09

I got on Wranngar early this morning to get my daily's from yesterday out of the way. Funny thing, because of the time change here the daily's I did were for the 7th, not the 6th as I thought, so I was unable to pick up the daily's. Not sure when they roll over now. Anyway I just wandered around. I went over to the Barren's to see if I could get Rocklance to drop Recipe: Savory Deviate Delight but he wasn't around.

After that I just wandered around some. There was no one on at all. I went long stretches without seeing anyone. I wandered around Eastern Kingdom some then headed to the Outlands for awhile. There was nothing going on there either. I could have done my daily's for the Knights of the Ebon Blade and The Sons of Hodir but I just wasn't into it, I will do them all when I get on later after they roll over. I did stop by to see Terokkarantula while I was in the Bonewastes. He's a level 65 elite you get a quest for there.

I will get on later and do all my daily's.
