Jeweled Onyx Panther

Jewelcrafting in Pandaria

3

One of the first things to notice is that we’ll only be using two JC slots now instead of three: Here’s an example: Delicate Serpent’s Eye which you’ll be able to cut once you reach 550 skill level.

The BIG thing I’ll be looking forward to are the panther mounts you’ll be able to make at max level; namely the Sunstone Panther, Jade Panther, Ruby Panther and the Sapphire Panther which combine into one very cool Jeweled Onyx Panther flying mount who’s been likened to Voltron. Good news for non-JCs is that they are BoE. I know Coolidge is already in line for the green one :)

The main thing that concerns me at the moment is the price for each one. On the other hand, you won’t see too many of them around so that’s definitely a perk, at least for a while.

This is what they look like at the moment, so far they’ve already had a re-skin.

All the recipes can be purchased from the Order of the Cloud Serpent Quartermaster once you’re exalted with the faction.

Panther recipes

So who’s looking to make one or more come Mists? I know I plan to make the set.

There are also two pet designs available from the Treasures of the Vale or the Ancient Guo-Lai Cache (both from doing Golden Lotus dailies).

Cooking in Pandaria

0

At the moment there are only two recipes available to learn from the cooking trainer. Fish cake (restores health and mana) and Pandaren meatballs (restores health). I managed to get a skill point every 1-3 Fish cakes but sadly, cooking the Fish cake only gets you to 530 before the recipe turns grey.

Cooking in Mists is tied in very heavily with The Tillers so if you’re serious about getting your cooking skill up, you’ll need to work on your Tillers reputation as well. Keep in mind that the dailies for The Tillers will only become available once you reach level 90.

Fishing in Pandaria

0

Fishing has just become available on the beta today.

With all the bugs with terrain – it was really hard to see where you’re going (pink sheets everywhere), it was only natural that I work on one of my professions; especially when I heard the splash of someone’s bobber in Dawn’s Blossom.

It appears that you get a skill point every 1-5 successful casts of fish. From what I can tell, they’ve opened up fishing all over the zone, though there doesn’t seem to be any distinction btwn what’s fished where. In the handful of spots I tried, both inland and coastal, I managed to fish something up.

In a sample of 100 successful casts, I managed to get:

  • Redbelly Mandarin x19
  • Jade Lungfish x18
  • Golden Carp x47
  • Junk x16

Not too bad in my book. Oddly enough, I’ve had a couple of empty loot windows… I wonder what I would have fished up otherwise?

The Jade Forest

  • Jade Lungfish
  • Redbelly Mandarin
  • Golden Carp

Valley of the Four Winds

  • Emperor Salmon
  • Krasarang Paddlefish
  • Golden Carp

The wreckages around Darkmoon Island were up but didn’t appear to be any different from the crate contents. The other day I managed to get a point up from two successful casts – three wreckage pools, gave me 5 crates and yielded two skill points.

Placeholder items can be pretty amusing at times.

Today, in Krasarang Wilds I found a very interesting spot. If you like Shipwreck debris, you’ll love this although they appear to be related to a daily quest.

So I thought I’d try fishing them up for fun. They gave me lots of Crates – generally one from each pool, although there was nothing unusual in them; as well as loose Azshara’s veil and volatile water.

OK, now I’m excited. Who needs a mushroom chair when you can have Nat’s Fishing Chair. It also looks like we’ll be getting Nat’s Hat at exalted rep with the man himself :P

More info when I find it…
