Hunter started two new hobbies on Saturday: Fishing and Cooking. He already had cooking up around 140, but that was purely from stuff that dropped with recipes on hand. Saturday I went after Cooking with a vengeance.
I started out with some recipes that took Tangy Clam Meat. Unfortunately, those are most often dropped by Giant Clams, which were really hard to find, except for some of the meat in the AH. After giving up looking for more meat, I started pursuing recipes using the databases. I looked up all the recipes for stuff between 150 and 225 to get me to the Artisan Cook in Gadgetzan.
I found recipes in Grom’Gol, Hammerfall, and Booty Bay that got me enough variety to scrounge up enough meat to cook up goodies. I used Tiger Meat, Raptor Flesh, Mystery Meat, and lots of eggs of various kinds. I finally got to 225 Cooking and finished the artisan quest.
On the fishing side, I hit level 50 in Thunder Bluff and Ratchet. I think I’ll stand on the docks at Ratchet unless I find some other 50-100 place that lets me catch debris or more valuable fish. That will take some research unless one of you knows better already.
My goal was to take a break from Un’Goro and level up those skills so I can take them into Outlands and not waste all of that money-making opportunity. Alchemy comes next, though I don’t know if I have the hootspah to level up Herbalism on Hunter. Gitr got up to 300, and that was rough. It sure is raw money, though.
What did you do this weekend?
