Kalu'ak Fishing Dreby 2/26/10

Brieanna took part in the Kalu'ak Fishing Dreby today. It was the first fishing derby any of my characters had ever been in. The objective is to catch a Blacktip Shark and return to hand it in, in Dalaran, before anyone else.

The person holding the event says "You can catch a Blacktip Shark anywhere you catch Pygmy Suckerfish". I headed over to my spot in Sholazar Basin and it took me 40 minutes to catch my Blacktip Shark. I hearthed back to Dalaran and went to see the event organizer. Needless to say I wasn't the first one to hand one in, but I did get a consolation prize of a Bag of Fishing Treasures, so it wasn't for nothing.

The Bag of Fishing Treasures had 9g19s11c, 3 Pygmy Oil and a New Age Painting signed by Marcia Chase which I sold to a vendor for 25 gold. Not much of a reward for the 40 minutes I spent but it was still exciting to participate and I will probably do it again next week.

I also got Brieanna's fishing skill leveled up to 450 during the fishing derby today and that was worth it right there.

Daily Fishing - Blood is Thicker 2/26/10

Today when I went to see Marcia Chase (53,65), by the fountain in Dalaran, she gave me Blood Is Thicker for my daily cooking quest. I did this one on Brieanna today.

This had me taking the flight path from Dalaran to Unu'pe in the Borean Tundra. Once there I flew inland until I found a Marsh Caribou to kill. Killing one of those, or any of the animals the Druids protect, gets you covered in blood. Once I was covered in blood I flew back to shore and jumped in, creating a blood pool. I fished the blood pool for Bloodtooth Frenzy, you need 5 for this quest. I got the 5 I needed in 2 casts, I got 2 the first cast and 3 the second.

With those in hand I flew back to Dalaran and went to see Marcia. I turned the Bloodtooth Frenzy over to her and she gave me a Bag of Fishing Treasures for my trouble. Today my Bag of Fishing Treasures had 7g52s25c, a Glow Worm, a Battered Jungle Hat and 2 Deviate Fish in it. Not the best day of fishing for Brieanna today.

Infused Mushroom Meatloaf - Daily Cooking 2/26/10

Today Katherine Lee (41,65), the Grand Master Cooking Trainer in the kitchen of A Hero's Welcome, had Infused Mushroom Meatloaf for me. I did this one on Brieanna today. I also sold 2 pieces of Chilled Meat to someone, for 5 gold, who was obviously doing this daily too. I guess they don't keep meat on hand for the daily. That can be expensive.

This had me heading down into the sewers to pick Infused Mushrooms. This went pretty quick today, I checked all my usual spots and found one in each. With Mushrooms in hand I headed back up to the bank to grab a couple pieces of Chilled Meat to make my meatloaf. I cooked it up right there in the bank then headed over to see Orton Bennet, upstairs at Curiosities and Moore. I gave him the meatloaf and he gave me 9g93s, a Dalaran Cooking Award and a Small Spice Bag with 4 Northern Spices and 3 Old Spices in it. An ok haul today.
