I got the new daily fishing quest when I went to see Marcia Chase (53,65), by the fountain in Dalaran today. This is actually a new version of an old daily, Disarmed is replacing Monsterbelly Appetite.

The story behind this is, a guard at the Dalaran Prison, better know as Violet Hold, had his arm ripped off by an unruly inmate and tossed into the water outside the prison gate. You need to fish up that arm. You want to fish right across from the entrance to the Violet Hold Instance (65,60). There is a little 'dock' there you can fish from. What you are looking to catch is a Bloated Slippery Eel. This is very similar to Monsterbelly Appetite in you have to open the Bloated Slippery Eel to find the Severed Arm inside. Once you have the Severed Arm you take it to Olisarra the Kind, (36,37) the Grand Master First Aid Trainer in the Magus Commerce Exchange, where she is going to attempt to reunite it with the guard. You get the usual reward of a Bag of Fishing Treasures which can have any number of great things inside or, possibly, just junk.

All in all I think this is a great improvement over Monsterbelly Appetite as there is no travel time involved. You get the quest from Marcia, run just about next door to where she is standing, and fish for your Bloated Slippery Eel. It couldn't be easier or faster.

Mustard Dogs - Daily Cooking 3/24/10

Katherine Lee (41,65), the Grand Master Cooking Trainer in the kitchen of A Hero's Welcome had Mustard Dogs! for Brieanna today.

As usual this had me running to all the grassy areas in Dalaran looking for Wild Mustard. I got my first two pieces in the courtyard out behind A Hero's Welcome as usual. I got the other two out and about town. I noticed the mini map now shows you the locations of Wild Mustard like they were a mineral or herb node too, I think that is new in this last patch, I never noticed it before. It didn't take me long to get the 4 Wild Mustard I needed and I was off to the bank to grab 4 pieces of Rhino Meat for the 4 Rhino Dogs. I cooked up the Rhino Dogs and combined them with the Wild Mustard to make a Mustard Dog Basket!.

I took the Mustard Dog Basket and went to see Archmage Pentarus (68,41) at Krasus' Landing where I traded him for 9g93s, 2 Dalaran Cooking Awards and a Small Spice Bag with 3 Northern Spices, 3 Old Spices, 5 Baby Spice and another Dalaran Cooking Award in it, a full bag today.
