When she went to Shattrath at level 60, mini-Kam was severely disappointed that Old Man Barlo wouldn’t give her any fishing quests, even though her fishing skill was already well into Grand Master (Wrath) levels. By the time she reached level 70 and he would, Marcia Chase would also give her fishing quests. So she kept her hearth in Thunder Bluff until she could go to Dalaran, because the Kalimdor/EK and Dalaran fishing bags have the chance to award the Jeweled Fishing Pole, whereas the Shattrath ones do not. Because she had not gotten her fishing pole yet, she kept her hearth in Dalaran after she reached level 80. Presently, I realized that whereas the Orgrimmar, Thunder Bluff, and Undercity fishing dailies are mutually exclusive, the Old World, Shattrath, and Dalaran fishing dailies are not. So I started doing both the Dalaran and Orgrimmar fishing dailies.
On Monday, mini-Kam dinged 84 from doing the tour of the Midsummer bonfires, and she also got that Jeweled Fishing Pole from her Dalaran fishing bag.
wait, what’s that she’s wearing?
… oh, no — oh no no mini-Kam, no! /facepalm
Then on Tuesday, Kamalia finally won the Timepiece of the Bronze Flight in her LFR run.
And today, mini-Kam became my fifth 85.
Sooo… now what? Well, faffing, most likely. I probably won’t bother with gearing Kamaliya up for LFR; she’ll want to be raid-ready in Mists, but she doesn’t need to be now. Instead of spending the money to gem, enchant, reforge, and Transmogrify multiple items as she moves up through the ilevels, I think I’d rather spend some time herbing and lay in a decent supply of cash to afford such things later. Besides which, Kam2.0 wants to farm Scholomance for the Sawbones Shirt and Bloodmail Legguards, and there’s Outland dungeons to be run for other Transmogrification set items.
