After catching Old Crafty and Mr Pinchy last night IF is next on the agenda.

500 fish you say. Ouch.

Nah, the first cast thing for Old Crafty must be random. Did the crokolisk quest twice in the past 2 weeks and never saw Old Crafty. Took about 70-80 casts last night to get him. On the plus side I did get to mash an ally rogue that thought I couldn't see him fishing behind a tree in Ogrimmar.


Somebody else on WoWhead said the same thing, though. I dunno what it was. Just seems pretty crazy that I'd catch him on very first cast after the patch.


Two of my guild mates did the same modu. Lucky bastages.


I want to complete all the fishing achievements for the "Salty" title.

I just think "Salty Scrubber" has a nicer ring to it than "Scrubber, Handful of Dhal".... or whatever the MH attunement title is.

I think I have fishing 2/75. One cast, and I thought to myself "F&^$ This!"
and Have never picked up a rod since.

I did this for a while, and then I found out the trick:
Fish "getting away" is only ever due to low skill. If they get away, use a better lure or go to a different area.
Download Quartz and watch the cast bar. You can only catch a fish at 13, 8, or 3. Sometimes this rule changes in instances.

That's about it. Knowing those two things made it a lot more bearable to level fishing.
I rule.

So worldie.
You do realise that what you did was short right?
>1k catches in Org and no crafty. Given up -.-

OTOH <200 for Ironjaw ;)


Personally I leveled my fishing while pooled for raids,bored and surfing forums etc.
You'll be surprised how fast your fishing skill goes up doing this, especially now.

Everyone says Valley of Honor to fish Old Crafty but I've had good luck heading into Valley of Spirits, lying down by the rock at the back and just tossing a lure (clips the rock, /cheer)

Keep getting ganked in Valley of Honor. Plus the corpse run is a bitch as alliance.

uh. I'm used to raids on city bosses at 6am being foiled by the opposite faction. I consider being a blind passenger of one of these raids and find a place to fish .. hoping the alliance will take the bait and massacres my canon fodder. so I can stand in a dark corner and get my fishes at least for a while

Well, i got a guildie who was like "toh, Old Crafty". Then after 2 mins he got another, and then another.

However he has been for 4+ hours already getting ganked in IF without luck :D

Are your characters well off with money to burn? Was your epic flyer hard to raise cash for.

Should have done fishing like all my friends did.

I am at 235 ish, want 375 before WotLk, fishing = easy cash.

It is boring, but so is mote gathering.

this.

don't forget after savory deviate delights the next best raid buff food (Fish Feast) is from cooking + fishing (or blowing your money on fish at the AH)

I've been trying to get my fishing and cooking up to snuff for WotLK. I'm at like 280 each right now. I hate these gorram professions so much.

And grats, Worldie.
