Random Heroic Dungeons 5/18/10

I have been doing a lot of random heroic dungeons on Brieonna to get gear drops and badges to buy gear. That is coming along pretty well. Since Sunday, when my gearscore was less than 2900, I have managed to bring it up to 4672 between drops and gear I have purchased using the badges. I only need 2 more pieces to get the Epic achievement, feet and waist.

I did a few dungeons with a friend of mine, Arkantose, tonight. That went really well, his gearscore is right around 6000 and he was tanking. For the most part I was able to heal him using just HoT's, he really didn't need a lot of heals anyway.

We ended up doing Trial of the Champion, Halls of Lightning, The Forge of Souls, where I got a nice neck piece, and Culling of Stratholme all in heroic mode. The runs were fast and a tank and healer queuing together is pretty much an instant queue so the queues went really fast.

I had one bad group in Azjol-Nerub. They weren't really bad players, they were just really poorly geared. It's not too bad to get one or two poorly geared players in a group, but every once in awhile you get a whole group of them and this was one of those times. There were 2 under 3000 gearscore, another under 3500 and the tank only had a gearscore of 3700. We made it all the way to the last boss without any deaths, some pretty spectacular healing on my part if I do say so myself, but there just wasn't enough DPS to take the last boss down. And every time he did Pound it would kill the 2 lowest geared players, one shot them, so then we were down to the tank, one DPS and the healer, just not enough. I finally bailed on that group, I could have completed 2 instances in the time I was in there.

I am pretty confident I will have my gearscore over 5000 by this weekend.

Daily Fishing - Jewel of the Sewers 5/18/10

I did the Dalaran daily fishing on Brieonna today which was Jewel Of The Sewers. It's pretty funny because she only has around 135 fishing skill.

I picked the quest up from Marcia Chase (53,65), by the fountain in Dalaran and headed down to my spot in the Black Market not really sure if I would be able to do it at my level. I figured I would give it a try and see what happened. It didn't go as quickly as it does on my other toons, it took me about 40 casts to catch the piece of Corroded Jewelry I needed.

I took that back up to Marcia and traded her for a Bag of Fishing Treasures. It would have been nice if I had gotten the Jeweled Fishing Pole or the Bone Fishing Pole but it was not to be. What I did get was 7g8s15c, 4 Pygmy Oil, a Whale Statue, which I sold to a vendor for 11 gold, and 3 Deviate Fish. Pretty much the usual haul.

It is nice to know I can complete them at my low level so I will be sure to check every day and do it if it is Jewel of the Sewers or Disarmed.
