Knights of the Ebon Blade and Sons of Hodir Daily Quests 1/19/10

I did my daily's for the Knights of the Ebon Blade and The Sons of Hodir on both Wranngar and Gomorra today. These don't take my long at all and pay pretty well. I am going to need to buy a lot of gems soon as season 8 for arena starts in a week and I will have to re-gear both of them.

I did the Knights of the Ebon Blade first as usual. The ones I do for them are Leave Our Mark, Vile Like Fire! and Shoot 'Em Up, which I get from the Shadow Vault, and From Their Corpses, Rise!, No Fly Zone and Intelligence Gathering, which I get from Death's Rise. I don't turn in Intelligence Gathering every day, the documents you need have a really poor drop rate so I collect them and turn them in when I get to 5, usually once a week or so. Gomorra did complete that one today so that was an extra 13g23s. All these daily's for the Knights of the Ebon Blade pay 13g23s each so it does add up. I usually get between 15-20 gold in garbage drops from these too.

After that I did The Sons of Hodir daily's. These take me about 20 minutes each character and pay pretty well. I do Blowing Hodir's Horn, Hot and Cold, Polishing the Helm, Spy Hunter and Feeding Arngrim. Like I said, these go quick and they also pay 13g23s each. I get around 15-20 in garbage drops off these too. By the end of the day it adds up. I also get some good leather and meat doing this daily. Sometimes, if I have a little time and I'm bored, I will farm Mammoth Meat too.

And finally, on the way back I stopped at K3 and did Overstock on Wranngar. Gomorra can't do this one yet, he didn't complete the quest line and I haven't gotten around to doing it on him. This is a quick and easy one that pays 12g96s and literally only takes a few minutes. All you have to do is lay out some land mines and kill 12 mobs that are running by. I put them right in a tight path they run through and get it done in no time. There is no contact so there are no repairs, this one is pure profit.

Daily Fishing - Jewel of the Sewers 1/19/10

Today Marcia Chase (53,65), by the fountain in Dalaran, had Jewel Of The Sewers again for Wranngar and Gomorra's daily fishing quest. I am not going to complain about that, this is the only daily fishing quest you don't have to leave Dalaran for, zero travel time.

This one had me heading down into the Underbelly, the sewers below Dalaran, to the Black Market. I went to my spot there and got my piece of Corroded Jewelry in less than 10 casts on each. There was one other person there today fishing in my spot but they weren't in the way. This was the first time I have actually seen someone fishing in my actual spot. I have seen people fishing in other areas of the Black Market before, it's a good, low population spot.

Once I had the Corroded Jewelry I headed back up to see Marcia and trade it in for a Bag of Fishing Treasures.

Gomorra's Bag of Fishing Treasures had 7g71s85c, 5 Pygmy Oil, 2 Worthless Pieces of White Glass and 3 Deviate Fish. Gom has had better days.

Wranngar's Bag of Fishing Treasures had 7g20s63c, 2 Elixirs of Water Walking, 2 Deviate Fish, 2 Runic Mana Potion and a Waterlogged Recipe.

I love getting a Waterlogged Recipe, it starts a quest. The quest is to take the recipe to Christi Stockton, the wine vendor at One More Glass, the wine and cheese shop in Dalaran. She gives you 13g23s and 5 Dalaran Cooking Awards for it. This one is even quicker and easier than Sealed Vial of Poison. Pays better too. Needless to say, Wrann made out pretty good on this one today.

Brieanna - Level 56 1/19/10

I played Brieanna for awhile tonight and got her to level 56. She has a lot of rested XP as I haven't played her in awhile so the bars go by pretty quick. I was questing in Western Plaguelands on her. I didn't really do much after she leveled, I went to Ironforge and trained, that was about it. She will probably sit for awhile now until I get bored again. She is only 2 levels away from Outlands now.

Mustard Dogs - Daily Cooking 1/19/10

Today when I went to see Katherine Lee (41,65), the Grand Master Cooking Trainer in the kitchen of A Hero's Welcome, for my daily cooking quest, she had Mustard Dogs! for Wranngar and Gomorra again. So much for variety.

This one had me running around picking Wild Mustard in the grassy areas around Dalaran. The first 2 I got on each were from behind A Hero's Welcome so don't forget to check there. I got the other 2 at Krasus' Landing for each of them. Then it was off to the bank to get some Rhino Meat for the Rhino Dogs. I built a fire and cooked them up right inside the bank today. Once I had the Rhino Dogs cooked I combined them with the Wild Mustard in the Empty Picnic Basket to make a Mustard Dog Basket!.

I took that over to Archmage Pentarus (68,41) at Krasus' Landing at exchanged it for 9g93s, 2 Dalaran Cooking Awards each and a Small Spice Bag. He is usually pretty free with the cooking awards.

Today Wranngar's Small Spice Bag had 2 Northern Spices in it. Nothing to write home about there but with the extra Dalaran Cooking Award it wasn't a bad haul.

Gomorra's Small Spice Bag had 5 Northern Spices, 4 Old Spices and another Dalaran Cooking Award in it. He made out really well today.
