My First Raptor

This morning, my troll shaman dinged 30, and hurried off to Sen’jin Village to pick out her raptor. She is both my first troll and the first character I have leveled to 30 since the entry-level riding skill was brought down from 40 to 30 (the others were already 40+ at that time.) I can only imagine how much less painful her mount will make the STV and Desolace quests.

Of course, as a shaman, she had ghost wolf with its 40% increase at her disposal already. But there is something special about your first mount regardless.

Next tasks: go grab flight paths in Arathi, Desolace, then head to STV to start the wild animal eradication project for good ole Nessingwary.

List of Lists: WotLK Info

Too Many Annas has put together a great compendium of WotLK information resources.

Be sure to check out the Banana Shoulders-produced "Siha’s Inscription Guide" linked to therein and go cry. I am not sure where I can stuff any more herbs before my Scribe-to-be’s bank explodes. Her recommended shopping list is a little more than what I have on hand right now:

  • 150x Earthroot, Peacebloom, or Silverleaf
    (DONE)
  • 100x Briarthorn, Bruiseweed, Mageroyal, Stranglekelp, or Swiftthistle
    (DONE)
  • 285x Grave Moss, Kingsblood, Liferoot, or Wild Steelbloom
    (NEED 40)
  • 270x Fadeleaf, Goldthorn, Khadgar’s Whisker, or Wintersbite
    (NEED 50)
  • 270x Arthas’ Tears, Blindweed, Firebloom, Ghost Mushroom, Gromsblood, Purple Lotus, or Sungrass
    (NEED 50)
  • 235x Dreamfoil, Golden Sansam, Icecap, Mountain Silversage, Plaguebloom
    (DONE)
  • 490x Any Outland herbs
    (DONE)

Guess my day’s WoW plans are now clear to me…

Cooking Achievements in Wrath

Although it's not as awesome as "Iron Chef" you can earn a "Chef" title from achievements after Wrath of the Lich King launches. To earn the title, you need to complete all of the following cooking achievements:

  • Grand Master cook
  • The Cake Is Not A Lie
  • Kickin' It Up a Notch
  • The Northrend Gourmet
  • Second That Emotion
  • Critter Glitter
  • Our Daily Bread (differs for horde and alliance)
  • Dinner Impossible
  • Captain Rumsey's Lager
  • Sous Chef
  • The Outland Gourmet

Read on for details on each achievement's criteria.

P.S. Collecting all the recipes in game is not required for the Chef title, but it is a related achievement. I've compiled a guide to all the recipes currently available in game and how to obtain them.

Welcome

This is a blog dedicated to chronicling my day-to-day adventures in the World of Warcraft. I’ve been playing for three years, and raiding since my first character hit 58 and we needed another healer for Molten Core.

My first character and main is a druid with a hybrid spec who raid heals. But come Lich King, I am speccing her BOOMkin and making my shaman my primary healer. Other alts at level cap are a frosty mage and two shadow priests (1 horde, 1 alliance. shhh.). Other areas of interest/obsession include working on maximizing my professions…and hoarding vanity pets.

Happy adventuring!
