Dragon Head = Rare Gems!

Friday, January 14th, 2011

I was questing through Uldum today on my Warlock, when I happened to fly by the dragon Myzerian who patrols around the Obelisk of the Moon. When you complete the quest, “The Shroud of the Makers”, you see him get blown up in the cinematic, yet here he was flying around with 1/3 of his health. He kept falling to the ground and then getting back up, and I thought that was weird, so I suggested we attempt to kill him to my Priest leveling buddy in case he dropped a quest item or something.

He wasn’t difficult to take out, sitting at only around 700k HP. I kited him around while the Priest dpsed him down and he never got the chance to hit either of us. He dropped a green item and a blue quest item called Myzerian’s Head. You turn it in to Sullah and he gives you an Inferno Ruby, Amberjewel and Ocean Sapphire! We killed Myzerian again in case the quest was repeatable, but he didn’t drop the head again.

I just thought I’d share this for any of you who happen to be questing through Uldum, as it’s always nice to get a few extra rare gems! Just make sure you don’t try to kill Myzerian before completing the Shroud of the Makers quest, because he has a buff that heals him for his whole health every second, and he hits really really hard, lol.

It appears someone lit this giant stone Kittymanbird’s soup on fire…

In all seriousness though, Uldum is amazing!

Fishing Relm First Failure

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

I didn’t manage to get the relm first for fishing, though I don’t believe that’s my fault! When the server finally switched over, it wouldn’t let me log back in for 10 minutes. Then by the time I was fishing level 499, someone on the Horde got the achievement. I was pretty sad, but wondered how they had managed to get so many more points than me in just those 10 minutes when I couldn’t log on!

I figured I’d finished my fishing off, and flew a little ways down the river from where I’d been standing in Uldum. I have no idea why, but once I started fishing just down the waterfall from where I’d been, literally like 2  seconds from where I was, I started getting a point every cast instead of every 10 casts! I finished my last 25 points in 3 minutes, when the previous 50 points had taken me 2 hours!

I’m pretty disappointed, if I had lost fair and square it wouldn’t be that bad, but between me being unable to log on right away, and then the strange fishing bug that had me getting a point every 10 casts instead of every cast just down river, I feel kind of cheated.

Oh well, I posted all the fish I got in the AH for 1500g a stack, lol. No one has gotten the Relm first Cooking yet, so perhaps someone will buy them. I also now have 525 fishing, so I guess that’s good too.

How To Make Gold In Cataclysm

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

For any of you coming here from Zuggy’s Blogging Carnival on Ways to Make Gold in Cataclysm, hello and welcome! I’m Miss Mediocre, and this is my gaming blog! Please feel free to leave me a comment, good or bad, about anything you read on my site! I do my best to respond to everything. Now, onto my post!

Thankfully I’ve had access to the beta for the past few months, so I’ve had some time to explore and plot out my approach for making some gold on the first day of Cataclysm. I’d like to point out that making gold is not my number 1 priority for that night, but I do believe I will make a decent amount simply by going after my goal!

I love fishing in World of Warcraft and have decided to try for the Fishing Realm First Achievement, Illustrious Angler. I’ve already pre-ordered a Cataclysm Collectors Edition, so I know everyone doing the online purchase and download will likely beat me into the game, but I’m still going to give it a shot! The way this is going to make me gold is as follows!

My character will be logged out in Dalaran beside the Flight Trainer. As soon as I log in, I will learn Azeroth Flying for 250g and run to Marcia Chase (the Fishing Trainer in Dalaran) to learn Illustrious Fishing. Then it’s through the portal in the Violet Citadel to the Caverns of Time. I’ll then fly straight west to Thistleshrub Valley in Tanaris where a pass has opened up leading into Uldum.

There is a river running through the Vir’naal Oasis that you will reach by continuing west. The crocolisks around the river are level 83-85, but if you fly up the waterfall to the north, there are no mobs to interfere with your fishing! You will catch a variety of Lavascale Catfish, Sharptooth and some Blackbelly Mudfish, all of which are the sole ingredient to many of the new cooking recipes.

The reason these fish might sell for crazy amounts is because of all the people who will be after the realm first Cooking achievement! I’m hoping to be one of the first to post the fish from Uldum in the Auction House and hopefully players will be willing to pay lots of gold for the fish required by the new 450 patterns! I do believe these new fish will sell like crazy though, regardless of achievements!

As one final tip for making some gold on the first few days of Cataclysm, it might be worth it to post the ingredients for the Northrend Recipe, Fish Feast. These will continue to yield points past 450, and because the Cataclysm Cooking Recipes require 3 daily tokens to purchase, many chefs will cook Fish Feasts to get as close to 525 as possible. The recipe calls for 2 Musselback Sculpin, 2 Nettlefish, 2 Glacial Salmon and 1 Northern Spice, all of which have been going for cheap (on my server anyway) as of late!

I wish you all the best of luck with all your Cataclysm gold-making enterprises and hopefully this helps a few of you fatten your gold pouches a little more thoroughly!

Thanks for Reading!
