Daily Quest Gold

Today when I was doing my daily quests I noticed they weren't paying out what they used to. Where I was getting around 200 gold a day from the The Sons of Hodir and Knights of the Ebon Blade daily's I was doing, including drops, I now get around 100 gold. They payment for the quests dropped from 13g23s each to 7g40s each. And some of them even dropped as low as 3g70s.

This is because of the upcoming expansion. 80 will no longer be the top level so the payment for the level 80 daily's goes down. That is what happened to Burning Crusades when Wrath of the Lich King came out, the level 70 daily's dropped to about half what they were paying. The problem I have with that is Cataclysm isn't here yet! I am trying to make gold so I will be able to afford to operate in Cata and they reduced the payouts for the daily's by half already...

Personally I think they should have waited and incorporated that when they expansion goes live on the servers. 80 is still the cap and will be for another 3 weeks. This had to have happened with the patch Tuesday or the restart today because it was fine before that.

Infused Mushroom Meatloaf - Daily Cooking Quest 11/17/10

Today when I went and picked up the daily cooking quest from Katherine Lee (41,65), the Grand Master Cooking Trainer in the kitchen of A Hero's Welcome, I got Infused Mushroom Meatloaf again. Two days in a row isn't bad for a "random" daily but I have had the same "random" daily for a week before. At least this is a quick easy one. I did it on Gomorra and Brieanna.

This had me heading down into the sewers below Dalaran to pick Infused Mushrooms. Once again there didn't seem to be anyone doing it today and I got my 4 fast. Once I had the Infused Mushrooms I headed over to the bank and grabbed a couple pieces of chilled meat for the rest of the ingredients for my Meatloaf. I built a fire and cooked it up right in the bank, it takes 2 seconds over a fire. Once I had my Infused Mushroom Meatloaf I delivered it to Orton Bennet, upstairs at Curiosities and Moore in exchange for 9g93s, a Dalaran Cooking Award and a Small Spice Bag.

Gomorra's Small Spice Bag had 3 Northern Spices and 3 Old Spices in it.

Brieanna's also had 3 Northern Spices and 3 Old Spices in it.

Not a bad return on this daily, there is really not much more to be had from it.

Disarmed - Daily Fishing Quest 11/17/10

Today when I went to see Marcia Chase (53,65), by the fountain in Dalaran, she had Disarmed for me. This is one of the better ones, right up there with Jewel Of The Sewers because you don't have to leave Dalaran to do it, no travel time :). I did it on Brieonna, Gomorra and Brieanna.

This had me heading over to the pool right outside the entrance to Violet Hold. As usual this one took a lot of casts on all my toons to complete. I don't know what it is about this one but it is never quick. The story is that one of the prisoners in Violet Hold tore the arm off a jailer and threw it in the pool outside the prison. It was eaten by a Eel which made it become bloated. Went I finally caught a Bloated Eel I opened it up and got the severed arm out from inside it. From there it is off to Olisarra the Kind, (36,37) the Grand Master First Aid Trainer in the Magus Commerce Exchange in Dalaran, where she is going to attempt to reattach it to the jailer. Good luck with that. She gave me 13g23s and a Bag of Fishing Treasures for my trouble.

Brieonna's Bag of Fishing Treasures had 9g46s88c, 5 Pygmy Oil, 2 Crafted Stars and 3 Deviate Fish.

Gomorra's Bag of Fishing Treasures had 10g10s52c, a Glow Worm and 2 Crafted Stars in it.

Brieanna's Bag of Fishing Treasures had 10g25s13c, 4 Pygmy Oil, 2 Crafted Stars and 4 Deviate Fish in it.

Not really a great day of fishing for anyone. I am really after the Jeweled Fishing Pole for Brieonna. She is around 284 fishing skill now so she can almost use it.

Sons of Hodir & Knights of the Ebon Blade - Daily's 11/16/10

I did my daily's for The Sons of Hodir and the Knights of the Ebon Blade on Gomorra and Brieanna today.

The Sons of Hodir had me heading to Dun Niffelem in the Storm Peaks. For them I do Blowing Hodir's Horn, Hot and Cold, Polishing the Helm, Spy Hunter and Feeding Arngrim. The only one I don't do for them is Thrusting Hodir's Spear which I determined isn't worth the gold it pays. These take me about 25 minutes and make me 66g15s plus whatever I get from drops. I also get Herbs, on Brieanna, and leather on both Brieanna and Gomorra.

From there is was off to Icecrown to see the Knights of the Ebon Blade. I used to fly right into the Shadow Vault but ever since the last patch I don't have the flight point on my map anymore. I can fly there on my flying mount and then fly out of there from the flight point, it is still there, but I can't fly into the flight point there. Now I fly into Deaths Rise using public transportation then fly over to the Shadow Vault on my own mount.

Anyway I picked up Leave Our Mark, Vile Like Fire! and Shoot 'Em Up from the Shadow Vault then flew back over to Deaths Rise and picked up From Their Corpses, Rise!, No Fly Zone and Intelligence Gathering. For awhile there it looked like they fixed Intelligence Gathering but it now seems to be back to the way it was before. By that I mean it takes forever to get the 5 documents you need. Altogether these take me about 45 minutes including getting the documents for Intellegence Gathering. These 6 daily's make me 79g38s plus whatever I get from drops. I also get Herbs, on Brieanna, and leather on both Brieanna and Gomorra.

I stopped by K3 in the Storm Peaks on Brieanna and did Overstock while I was in the area earlier. This one literally takes a couple minutes, no effort, and makes 12g96s.
