Everywhere you go! We've got new trainer recipes, new epic baubles with our Badges of Justice, new daily quests and new flying mounts. And the big gift for the whole family - a brand new dungeon for everyone to play in!
The first thing I did when I got onto my server was head for Zangarmarsh and try to get the new Fishing book. It took 2 pools of debris and 4 curious crates for me to get the drop. Unfortunately by the time I had gotten my book, many of the debris spawns had been fished out. So other folks in my guild had trouble getting their own book. If you go to Zang and there are no pools of steampump flotsam, try Feralas or Stranglethorn. It might take a bit longer since the drop rate on books is lower in the old world, but there's plenty of floating junk in both zones and likely no competition.
The next thing I tackled was the Cooking quest - hoping for a new recipe. I didn't get one on my first try, but the Kaliri birds were quite scarce. I'm sure that's good news for the folks doing Skettis quests, not so great news for us Cooking folks :)
After that I hit my Leatherworking trainer and grabbed my new recipes, then set out to get the vendor ones as well. Leatherworkers actually got quite a bit in this patch and I think they knew it. I went to the Auction to grab some extra leather and found nothing but scraps, overpriced scraps at that! I don't think leather has been this expensive since the expansion was released, hopefully it won't last too long.
Next I decided to try my hand at farming the super-sized leatherworking bag. I went over to the Barrier Hills and it was pretty quiet there. I got to killing and it dropped from the second mob - woot! Another guildmate got it on the 8th kill and my friend Squorgov got his in about ten minutes. So it doesn't appear to be a rough farm just yet unless you get unlucky.
After that I thought I'd try Shadowmoon and see if my luck would hold out for the new meta-gem recipe. Unfortunately it did not because there were about five people already farming and a bunch of dead naga. Oh well, it was worth a shot.
So I hope you all had as much fun yesterday as I did - it was really nice to see everyone enjoying themselves and getting excited about their new discoveries!
