This is the week for boring things. If you’re looking for excitement.. run over to the World of Warcraft Forums and argue about how threat reduction will prevent Retribution pallies from tanking (wtf?). Whatever.
Over here.. I’ve decided to level fishing. It’s in the well rounded “gosh I ought to cap all my skills” category.
I logged on yesterday, completed my dailies and then spent an inordinate amount of time farming for mote of mana. After about two hours I had exactly one primal and was bored out of my mind. I decided that one primal was enough for one day and hearthed back to Shatt. Almost immediately someone announced in trade that they were selling 7 Primal Mana for 10g each. I scooped them up. So I guess I’m done farming Primal Mana for a while.
I already had the Primal Water.. so I “borrowed” khorium bars (from my brother and Grimr) and was able to get [item]Khorium Boots[/item] crafted. I also got [item]Silver Spellthread[/item] crafted and applied to my healing pants.
Getting Khorium Boots reminded me that I wanted to get the boot enchantment Vitality. It’s a world drop so my only hope is to check AH frequently. I used the portal to SW and found quite a few enchanting recipes on AH that I didn’t have.. unfortunately, Vitality wasn’t one of them. Ah well.
Looking at enchanting recipes on AH reminded me that I REALLY want to get my enchanting up. Right now all of the recipes I have are pretty expensive. *sigh*. I’m continually annoyed that I haven’t finished off Enchanting or Cooking.
I’ve run into a stumbling block with cooking since it seems that all of the high level cooking recipes require fish. And me with fishing stuck at 22. I figured “eeh, it’s a boring week anyway.. ” and liberated a fishing pole from an alt. At some point I’ve acquired a [item]Strong Fishing Pole[/item]. I started at 11:40 PM PST and ended at 12:30 PM PST. I went from 22 to 100. I would have gone further.. but I relocated to Stranglethorne Vale.. and only afterwards realized I needed higher fishing skill before I went there. I’ll go back to Westfall and I’ll hit 130 tonight.. and then go fish the vale.
I guess fishing is like farming.. only more boring. I do have to say that nothing puts me to sleep faster.. AND it’s very hard to quickly click the bobber when you’re falling asleep. My plan is to just bluster through it. Hopefully this will let me get the fish I need to cap out cooking as well. Hopefully.
