I’m not a fan of fishing in the slightest. Real life or in WoW. I honestly just don’t have the patience. Still, I hopped on Liouxpold this morning to take a screenshot for something else and realized he hadn’t done any Darkmoon quests this week. I took him to the Faire to knock off the profession ones for the easy XP. As he happens to have fishing, I took the daily and headed down to the water. Now, I have no idea if it’s a common item now or what, but on my second cast I was presented with something entirely unexpected.
Now, according to El’s explanation on how to catch said Sea Pony, it’s not quite as easy as I thought. The percentage is less than 1 in terms of drop rate, so go me! I’m not an avid pet collector or anything (least of all on Liouxpold) but that was a pleasant surprise as I don’t usually encounter that kind of luck.
So, feeling kind of chipper and having myself half an hour, it was off to Saintvache. I knew he had a couple of the Darkmoon Faire item quests. I did the cooking daily and then swung out to Uldum for a few quests include Whack-A-Pygmy. After that half an hour, I think there’s finally a light at the end of the tunnel.
According to the old mouse over, I’m now at 66%. Two months after hitting 80, it looks like he’ll finally get to 85. No wonder I get the impression my guild was getting tired of waiting for it to happen. Illidan willing, I’ll have enough time tomorrow morning to cap.
