Monsterbelly Appetite - Daily Fishing 12/29/09

Today Marcia Chase (53,65), by the fountain in Dalaran, had Monsterbelly Appetite for Wranngar. At least it wasn't Blood Is Thicker again but you fly to the same flight point so it takes the same amount of time anyway.

This one had me taking the flight path to Un'upe then flying out to sea in a southeasterly direction to the icebergs out there. Once there I located a school of Deep Sea Monsterbelly using fish finding. Once you learn fish finding it is found in the tracking menu attached to your mini-map. I fished that until I caught a Bloated Monsterbelly, which I opened up to find the Severed Arm I need for this quest.

I took the Severed Arm back to Olisarra the Kind, (36,37) the Grand Master First Aid Trainer in the Magus Commerce Exchange in Dalaran, and exchanged it for a Bag of Fishing Treasures. Today my Bag of Fishing Treasures had 8g93s55c, a Glow Worm and 3 Pieces of Worthless Orange Glass. Not a great haul today, better luck tomorrow hopefully.

Brieanna - Level 54 12/29/09

I worked on Brieanna some more today and got her to level 54. She is moving along well.

I leveled in Winterspring, I did a bunch of quests there and probably have a couple more days there before I am done. This is a pretty nice area to level/quest in. The quests aren't too hard to solo and the mobs are spread out so you don't aggro 4 or 5 trying to kill 1. That only happened once tonight, I was killing a Chillwind Ravager when two more came over to help. The one I was killing was level 58, 5 levels higher than me, and the 2 that joined in were 57 and 58. I got 2 of them down before the last one got me. If I had popped a health pot instead of mana I might have made it, but I was out of mana at the time and it seemed like the thing to do. If I could have gotten it off me for a few seconds I could have used a bandage, I have Heavy Netherweave bandages that heal 3400 health over 8 seconds, but damage taken breaks the channel.

I went to Ironforge after I leveled so I could train and see if there were any equipment upgrades in the auction house I could use. There was only a pair of boots which I got. There are 2 nice epic daggers in there but they are 190 and 200 gold each. I can't see spending 400 gold on something I will throw away in another 8-10 levels. The ones I have now are level 39 but are doing me well enough as I try not to let anything get close enough to me that I have to use them. Brieanna dual wields daggers and they are pretty fast, their speed is 1.40.

Daily Cooking - Convention at the Legerdemain 12/29/09

Today Katherine Lee (41,65), the Grand Master Cooking Trainer in the kitchen of A Hero's Welcome, had Convention at the Legerdemain for Wranngar again. I hate it when it gets stuck on this one, it eats up a lot of supplies fast. It takes 4 Chilled Meat each time.

This one had me running to the bank to grab 4 Chilled Meat to make the 4 Northern Stew this one calls for. I made a fire and cooked it up right outside the bank. From there I was off to One More Glass to get a Jug of Wine. I found it right inside the door today. One thing I can say about this one, it's quick.

I took the wine and stew over to Arille Azuregaze, the bartender at The Legerdemain, and exchanged it for 9g93s, a Dalaran Cooking Award and a Small Spice Bag with 4 Northern Spices in it, not a bad haul today.

Brieanna - Level 53 12/28/09

I worked on Brieanna some more today and got her to level 53.

Everything I had in Western Plaguelands was red and too hard for me to solo so I headed over to Felwood, in Kalimdor, to see if there was anything there for me. I hit the jackpot there, there were a lot of quests for me to do there giving a lot of good XP. I did everything I could get in Felwood and worked my way into Winterspring. I am currently questing there and had to drop a few older quests to take new ones because my quest log was full. I will be there for a day or two before heading back to the Plaguelands for the final run until I am 58 and can head to Outlands. At that time I will drop all the quests I have and start fresh in Outlands.
