The Ghostfish - Daily Fishing 12/8/09

The daily fishing, from Marcia Chase (53,65), by the fountain in Dalaran, was The Ghostfish again. That had me heading over to River's Heart in Sholazar Basin to catch the elusive Phantom Ghostfish.

I took the flight path out of Dalaran to River's Heart, then flew up top, slightly northwest of the flight point, and fished for my Ghostfish. I got one on the 9th cast and ate it right away. It is on a timer that starts clocking as soon as you loot it, you have 60 seconds, so eat it as soon as you loot it or you will lose it. I had the whole Ghostfish experience, mystery solved.

I went back to Dalaran and reported to Marcia what I found out and she gave me a Bag of Fishing Treasures which today had 7g25s5c, 5 Pygmy Oil, a New Age Painting signed by Marcia Chase which I sold to a vendor for 25 gold, and a Waterlogged Recipe which starts a quest. The quest is to take it to Christi Stockton, the wine vendor at One More Glass, the wine and cheese shop. She gives you 13g23s and 5 Dalaran Cooking Awards. An excellent return on this one today, over 45 gold total.

Infused Mushroom Meatloaf - Daily Cooking 12/8/09

The daily cooking from Katherine Lee (41,65), the Grand Master Cooking Trainer in the kitchen of A Hero's Welcome, was Infused Mushroom Meatloaf again. This is not surprising due to maintenance. It took them a couple hours longer than expected to complete maintenance today as they were installing patch 3.3.0 and the daily cooking and fishing were the same as yesterday.

I headed down into the sewers to pick some Infused Mushrooms, I needed 4 for this one. I got them pretty quick, there didn't seem to be many people on and no one doing the daily it looked like. I did notice that there were Underbelly Elixirs everywhere, I got 9 just running around down there. I took the mushrooms and ran over to the bank to grab some Chilled Meat, I needed 2 pieces of that. I made a fire and cooked the meatloaf outside the bank.

I took the meatloaf over to Orton Bennet, upstairs at Curiosities and Moore, and exchanged it for 9g93a, a Dalaran Cooking Award, a Small Spice Bag and 2 Northern Spices. Not a good haul for this one today.
