Healer Friendly Dailies: Icecrown

Dailies: because once you have epic flying on your main, you realize how annoying not having it on your alts is.

Shoot ’em Up:  Fly over.   Grab harpoon gun.  Spam the attack button to shoot drakes.  Collect gold.  Win.
Vile Like Fire: Wander a short distance away from the harpoon gun, steal a drake, burn houses, collect more gold, win again.  I had to kill maybe 1 mob by myself for these.
No Fly Zone + From Their Corpses, Rise!:  Two in one, here.  Grab your bone gryphon and your Questionable Death Knight Issued Liquid, kill 10 Gryphon Riders, then turn their corpses into ghouls.  Ta-da.
Another quest in the same area as those last two is Intelligence Gathering.  I don’t like that quest as a healer simply because the keys are random drops, and even then, not all chests contain documents.  While I pick up the quest, I don’t aim to get it done in one day-I use the keys I get from the riders I kill to open what chests I find.  Sooner or later I complete the quest and get some extra gold, but I just find it aggravating otherwise.  Stupid RNG.

Other Quests:
King of the Mountain: I have not done this one personally, but I’ve been told it’s easy enough.  Jump.  A lot.   If for some reason you need a video, there’s one here.
Capture More Dispatches: Another one i Haven’t done, but wowhead’s page on it includes a handy macro that makes it cake.

    When using the harpoon gun, fire like mad. Don’t worry about your energy or whatever. Once it’s depleted, use your regen ability and fire away again. Once that’s gone, switch guns and you won’t have to wait for any regen or the ability CD.

    Two other good ones are the “King of the Mountain” PVP quest (two minutes to complete) and “Capture More Dispatches” (use a macro to target the messengers.)

    @Terathis – Hmm, I’ll have to see if I can find those-I haven’t exactly done all of Icecrown yet.

    @Kyr – yeah, it’s all a matter of mindless button mashing. XD

    The King of the mountain quest is easy and located in the back of one of the houses in Ymirheim(sp?) on the southern side, its one of my favorites.

    A couple more are Assault by Ground and Assault by Air. Both are at the bottom of the Plateau of Ymirheim, east side I believe. Assault by Air is a simple vehicle one, while Assault by Ground has you escorting a group of 6 NPCs which you can actually heal! Just let them kill the small amount of mobs that you come across.

    I’ll definitely check those out, and likely add them to the list. Clearly, I’ve missed entirely too much of that zone.

    …well, after the raid, at any raid.

    Clearly I need to be less lazy with my wowhead filter.
