Fishing & Skilling at 73
Had some time to play a little bit over the weekend and managed to lvl up to 73 while just having no pressure fun. Spent most of it just doing what I often enjoy Fishing for fun as well to level up the skill a bit. As well leveling up some of the other professions a bit so I can make them useful as well for making some needed funds as well leveling.
So managed to run around mining for a while mining Cobalt and then Saronite nodes in Scholazar Basin while being chased by higher lvl mobs. Got mining leveled from 375 all the way up to 450, while encountering ninja miners on flying mount who won’t cease to hijack your node while your fighting a mob while standing on the node itself. I guess some things don’t change. As a result I’ve just learn to stun the mob and just mine the node if in doubt and kill it after especially on Saronite nodes or better.
With all the Frostweave cloth so far collected was able to get First Aid up to 429 as well as learn the skill for Heavy Frostweave Bandages from the book that I remembered dropped in Zul’Drak zone. I tend to use a lot of bandages all the time even though I can heal myself anyway. So wont be too long before I get the skill max leveled.
I’ve missed having Herbalism as a profession just because for me I like it with the way I like to work Alchemy. Herbs are expensive on AH compared to my low funds stash at the moment and had to laugh a bit as it remind me well of how I once used to profit from herbs on AH some time ago. And so far I’ve barely done much with Alchemy without herbs as it is since I had made the change to Mining before WotLK was released and only just now leveling to some degree months later. So Alchemy right now got leveled up to 400 just enough to be able to do Northrend Alchemy Research to learn new recipes.
But for the most part just enjoyed doing some Fishing wherever I saw pools of fish and just fishing in Dragonblight mostly for Dragonfin Angelfish and in particular to level up my cooking skills which is around 415 or so with Dragonfin Filet with the nice tank food buff (+40 Strength, +40 Stamina). Can’t go wrong having a bit of that Dragonfin Filet food buff in bag or to sell the filet /fish itself on AH for some needed profit. So far fishing is around 404 and for me remain relaxing and if anything as well its profitable in many ways if you stand still for a while. Game wise I prefer to fish for my own food if possible and at least I can levelup the skill, plus its profitable to sell the fish as well if anything. And since i’m low on funds at the moment it helps to sell something at least to make some more profits and Fishing works for me.
