Brieonna - Level 50 Holy Priest

I have been working on Brieonna and got her to level 50 now. I have been doing a combination of questing and random dungeons, mostly random dungeons. In a dungeon it is my job to heal and keep people alive.

I am up to Sunken Temple and Blackrock Depths now. I still have some good groups and some bad groups. I love the good groups and usually bail on the bad groups. I can not believe how under geared some of the "tanks" are that actually have the guts to click on the tank box in the dungeon finder. It takes more than being a plate wearer, or Druid, to be a tank. You have to have some gear and at least a rudimentary clue what you are doing. If you are grossly under geared don't pull 10 times more than you can handle, and if you can't hold aggro, don't pull large groups of mobs, this isn't rocket science people...

Daily Fishing - Blood is Thicker 4/25/10

Today Marcia Chase (53,65), by the fountain in Dalaran, had Blood Is Thicker for the daily fishing quest, again... I did it on Gomorra.

This had me heading over to the flight point and taking a flight to Unu'pe in the Borean Tundra. Once there I flew inland until I found a Marsh Caribou to kill. The reason I need to kill an animal is to get covered in blood. Killing any animal in the Borean Tundra will do the trick, I just pick these because they are close to the flight point. When I was covered in blood I flew back to the shore and jumped in. This washes the blood off me and also creates a blood pool which will attract the Bloodtooth Frenzy I need for this quest. I fished in the blood pool until I caught 5. That doesn't take long as you catch them 2 or 3 at a time.

When I had my 5 Bloodtooth Frenzy I hearthed back to Dalaran and went to see Marcia. I traded her the 5 Bloodtooth Frenzy for a Bag of Fishing Treasures, which today had 6g49s39c, 2 Elixirs of Water Walking, a Velociraptor Skull and 3 Deviate Fish in it. Not a great day of fishing for Gom and certainly not worth the time it took to fly to Unu'pe, but I was in queue for the random daily heroic dungeon anyway so I needed something to do.

Cheese for Glowergold - Daily Cooking 4/25/10

When I went to see Katherine Lee (41,65), the Grand Master Cooking Trainer in the kitchen of A Hero's Welcome, she had Cheese for Glowergold for me. I did this one on Gomorra today.

This had me running around collecting Half Full Dalaran Wine Glasses people had left laying around Dalaran. I only got 2 in A Hero's Welcome today as opposed to the 3 or 4 I usually get. I got the others at the Cantrips and Crows Tavern in the Underbelly and One More Glass, the wine and cheese shop. I also got the piece of Aged Dalaran Limburger there too.

Once I had all the ingredients I combined them on the platter to make a wine and cheese platter. I took that over to Ranid Glowergold (36,28) at the Leatherworkers in the Magus Commerce Exchange, and exchanged it for 9g93s, a Dalaran Cooking Award and a Small Spice Bag with 4 Northern Spices and another Dalaran Cooking Award in it. Not a bad haul for Gom today.
