Draenor Notes

I'm sending four characters through Draenor.  As usual I'm slinking ahead with my druid.

I'm trying to get every quest and objective in each area.  I'm killing the rares as I see them. 

Must make time to do more fishing. Foods and Potions require them and although I don't mind stopping occasionally at an appealing pool, I'm finding it hard just to fish when there are so many other things to do.

My Frost Mage is improving survivability wise.  I still despise the loss of Evocation and Arcane Blast (?).  I used that on multiples all the time.

My Warlock waltzes through the world and she even did my first live game dungeon.  Everyone's favorite Bloodmaul Slag Mines.  It may be the first time I was in a group who did it start to finish.  I finally gave up on beta dungeons because of groups breaking up or problems with disconnects and realm restarts.  Bah nightmarish.

My Paladin is holding her own despite her still puny item levels.

I'm really just playing Blackwater, but I couldn't help but slink over to my other server and send those three characters through the jungle and settle them down in a garrison.

The garrisons are endlessly entertaining.  I hadn't upgraded my mine in beta because I didn't need the materials. Now that my Blacksmith is there, I can send her endless stuff.  I love the Archaeology fragments you pick up in there too.   I'm getting to try all of the buildings thanks to my alts.  Unfortunately my Leatherworkers are Rogues, so that is going to take awhile to get those over.

Somehow I'm going to get my archaeology skills up before hitting the Spires of Arak area.

I have found that the starter areas are just deserted and I'm rarely seeing other people in them.  Sometimes you just like to have other people around sharing the experience but nooo.  I finally noticed I was only seeing Blackwater Raiders people in the intro.  Once out in Shadowmoon, the joint is bursting with Shadow Council peeps.  Well, not bursting, by they seem to be the most numerous.

Galaxies Tuesday: Doctor's Hunting List...

Apologies to my loyal Galaxies Tuesday readers for no Galaxies at all last week. :(  Busy, busy with Draenor.  You know how that goes.

My first character in Galaxies was a Doctor.  It actually took me six months to get Master Doctor because one of the lines of the skill tree was medicinal crafting and an ore that I needed did not spawn on my server for several months.  I was just stuck.  When it did spawn, it's stats were absolute junk but I was so thrilled to even see it show up.

The resource shifts in Galaxies were part of the thrill of the Resource Hunt.  Something might not show up at all, or it would only spawn on Dathomir, or in some impossible to place anything but a small harvester spot.  In the case of creature resources, you would really need the help of a hunting group, particularly on the "adventure planets" in order to gather enough to use or sell.  Sometimes you could just get in a random group of people hunting the resource, but best if you could snare it all for yourself, muhahaha.


Doctors’ Hunting List – Medical Meat!!!
Complete as of 5 April 2004


All of this data is nicked from SWGCreatures.com unashamedly!  Great resource, but when I was hunting for either Herbivore or Avian meat, I found that I kept on having to go back the website, note down what I should be looking for on a given planet… and of course, by the time the next spawn of decent meat had shifted in for that planet, the original piece of paper was long gone.  So I offer this table instead. 

Please send updates to SWGCreatures.com, not me!

"Chall" is the creature’s challenge level as reported by SWGCreatures.com.  I’ve started trying to give an indication of how much of the relevant resource each creature drops... but this was very 11th hour, and I’ve only got 3 so far!  In any event, this entire column is very vague, as I’m not sure what the relationship is between harvesting skill and amount harvested.  To fill you in, I’ve got the third box in the scout tree, but I’ve rounded all these drops to the closest 5.
