Profession: Fishing

I have been fishing a lot recently in aid of upping my cooking skills.  I figure they will work together except for the slight issue of needing so any ingredients for each recipe, however on the bright side, it might mean a second cook book or even me attempting to make my own Warcraft recipes!

The biggest salvation which I realised too late is that they made the raft from Pandaria an actual toy.  No more having to carry it around – brilliant!

I got an enchanted lure at some point and decided to use it and see what happened. Got an achievement – that’s what! For catching a rare fish.

Which made me wonder what else I had been catching and not paying attention to: over 10 Leyscale Koi – thanks for Ancient Mana, a Magic frog (I picked up another one later but was a fish not a frog – same principle though).

And this gem of a find:

Yup, I was carrying around a murloc for god knows how long; no wonder my back started to hurt so when I decided to slap him and stop him from getting a free ride. Isn’t he adorable….NOT!! Filthy murloc!

My fishing is at about 750 I think and my cooking is approx 740 so a super long way to go no matter which way you look at it sadly, but as I have one maxxed profession now, I need to keep pushing for the others.  I should really get focused on that alchemy and tailoring – but my god the expense.  Gahh!!  I only just hit 100k for the first time in my WoW life and I don’t want to waste any of it!

Getting mounted….on the wall?

I have been uploading pictures to my blog site, and then thinking I had written the corresponding post. Clearly I am a doofus!

I was one of the people going nuts about this ghost moose mount!  Yup, I did it. I managed to convince Lominari the mount was awesome as well and we spent quite a few hours clearing mobs to get the items.

We both avoided archaeology in game because it was so horrific to do, but they seem to have made the most awesome change with the little shovel above your head when you get close to the site.  That alone made it so much more bearable.

I think in total it took us about 3 hours, possibly 4, to get all the fragments, but we both spent a lot of time clearing mobs out initially. As the afternoon started to end there were a huge number of players online and it made the mob issue non existant.

Here we both are with them little guys rearing up; very hard to tell on this image though 🙂

I never though archaeology would be the profession I levelled first in game, but then…you just never know.  When you have a mount you are chasing I guess it makes all the difference.

I also managed to get 3 different pristine artifacts to place on the wall in Dalaran; given I think I only managed three for the entire time i played Draenor I am pretty happy with that, statistically speaking 😀  A drum, a hook and some other weird thing, I can’t remember the name of now.
