Phew! It’s been another productive day for me as I managed to max out my herbalism, which proved tricky in Kun-Lai Summit for an 85 druid with dodgy gear. Even though I started doing the quests in The Jade Forest just to upgrade my gear, it proved dicey at times. The herbs let me work on my Alchemy so that I could potentially discover the recipe to make the new diamonds for my last three points in JC. My scribe on the other hand, managed to max out her profession as well so I was able to make my two kite pets. :)
Woot for Jack of All Trades too! Talk about achievements galore. :D
After a lot of captures and achievements, as well as the starter battle quests for Eastern Kingdoms I completed the Big City Pet Brawlin’ – Alliance. By the end of the night, I also managed to get the Feral Vermling as a reward for completing the achievement Going to Need More Leashes.
By the way, if you’re short a pet or two from the achievement, don’t forget to buy the racial ones for each of your toons. I logged into my 48 worgen today to collect my Gilnean Raven from the trainer but the task turned out to be a lot harder than I anticipated. Her home is normally in Darnassus so I had to work out/remember how to get to Stormwind from there (while picking up some missing pets along the way through captures). The hardest part turned out to be physically getting to the Battle Trainer on the other side of the wall from the Harbour. After trying to run there from inside, I attempted to climb the mountain from the initial human starting area and swimming in the canal. But after what seemed like ages, I asked one of the guards so I could pinpoint her location on the map. From there it was a lot easier as I realised that she wasn’t as far out as I thought – I’m too used to flying to her which is much less annoying =/
I think I’m also up to 11 rare pets so far… I started out slow this time ’round but pretty soon I’ll be back where I was on the beta saying that I managed to defeat Aki the Chosen again. Now that’s a challenge! :P
