First and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I know we’ve been pretty silent over the holidays. We were REALLY, REALLY BUSY with seeing friends, buying gifts, and sailing the Cola Seas with Captain Morgan. Okay…the first two parts of that are only semi-true. While we did some holiday stuff and did do some shopping, we didn’t have much time off from our respective jobs. Also, we wanted to avoid the holiday madness observed at most public places. Anyway, it was fairly relaxing, but it didn’t provide much fuel for WoW ramblings.
But I’m breaking the silence now.
And what is my topic of choice for the first post of the year?!
In particular, one Horde daily cooking quest that
drives me mad used to drive me mad. Crawfish Creole.
If you haven’t figured out how to make this less frustrating on yourself, keep reading…
Aaaaand chances are, you stopped reading. Because you probably had this figured out some time ago.
But not me. Whenever I would get this daily fishing quest, I would get frustrated. It would be near impossible for me to find the crawfish. Let alone target (and collect) them. It got so bad that I would basically just camp a spawn site for one crawfish and just wait until it popped up ten times.
Fortunately for me, though, this got sorted out over the holidays. Only about two months after patch 4.0.3. (Yes, I’m a little slow…) And yes, I also realize that as I’m posting this, this very solution is already in the comments of the Wowhead page. But hey – not everyone reads the Wowhead page for everything they do in WoW…
Aaaaanyway, the thing that will make this quest super, super easy: hitting the “V” button to show name plates.
You won’t have to adjust your camera angles to find these suckers in under-water vegetation. You won’t have to kill innocent toads hoping they were crawfish. Nope, you’ll know exactly where they are.
And targeting is made easy. Instead of having the little bastards scurry away just as you get your cursor over them, you can just click the name plate to pick them up.
After this, you’ll think it’s a cooking daily inspected by E.Z. Moade.
