I’ve settled into a routine of doing the Argent Tournament dailies on Korby and Innoruuk after work, and then leveling non-stop on Aaeru for the rest of the night.  It’s pretty amazing how quickly I’ve been able to make back the money I spent on Innoruuk’s epic flight.  I’m back up to 4k already, and considering I just spent 1k on Aaeru’s dual spec last night, I was up to 5k pretty fast again.

I powerleveled my cooking last night, though I kinda blew it on planning what recipes to buy and make.  Basically, I was at 410 already, had 56 awards, and 102 spices.  I should have stopped at 425 skill and bought the feast recipes, but I went and bought all the melee skill recipes first, which exhausted my awards, and then cooked like crazy, using up all my spices getting to 444 on green skill-ups.  Oops, but it’s nice to be so high now.  Just a few more cooking dailies and I can buy Fish Feast and one of the others to skill up on to 450.

I installed the WinterTime add-on, and now I’ve been hitting Wintergrasp regularly.  I don’t know if the badges have a limit of 100 or not anymore, but I spent most of my 97 WG badges and a sizeable amount of my 350osh shards on PvP gear last night for resilience total of 369.  There’s still more to buy too.

I did the always annoying Arcane Runes quest on Aaeru last night.  Surprisingly, I didn’t have quite as much trouble with it as I did in the past.  I think that might have something to do with the fact that she had a few more levels than either Korby or Dalkado had when they did it.  I tried swimming to the SW of the pick up platform to find a way back up top, since I didn’t want to hearth out and then have to trek all the way back there to turn in the two quests I did at the west end of the zone.  I ended up finding the A Crew Under Fire quest, which is one of the oddest things I’ve seen in this game, and that’s partly because it’s completely unfinished.  There’s no reward, no follow up chain, no cash, no rep.  Just a bunch of male humans going “huh!” over and over as the naga swarm and attack them.

Ended the night in Blasted Lands with the buff food quests.  It must have been rare silver-border spawn night in that zone, because I killed 4 of them.  Didn’t get anything good from them, but Aaeru is just on the edge of reaching 55 now.
