Seize the Fish or Carpe Carp

My fishing skill is climbing – and I have to say its the most boringest and longest to skill up profession – well also maybe because like herbing, mining and skinning its rather difficult to speed level. Has anyone ever calculated how many times you need to click that annoying little cog ( not even counting the ” Your fish has got away’s’ and ‘No fish are hooked” Im not sure I want to know….

I click therefore I fish.

However there is something soothing in the gentle sound of the water lapping on the shore, and if you close your eyes you can somewhat reaslistically imagine being on a boat and the sounds are real water.
You then however miss clicking on the bobber and you have no fish for dinner.

I must admit the Find Fish Spell from the Weather Beaten Journal I got from doing the Daily fishing quest one day is useful, ( no Baby croc though… ) I fly around lakes wasting precious moments of my + fishing buff eg the Sharpened Fishing Hook which has been a common reward for the Fishing daily. But it increases my chance of finding a Pool of Zangarian Sporefish which when cooked into Blackened Sporefish and sell better then what else I catch in Zanger. ( aren’t I all full of links today… )

Amongst some interesting things.. there is always the off hand fish.. the perfect accessory for the Fashionista – strutting your stuff in Shatterah.. Huge Spotted Feltail See aren’t I stylish….

    I enjoy the fishing daily quest, and my new blue fishing hat I got from a random daily drop. I also find cooking those fish sells very very well. Good money in those golden darters.

    Another fun thing is to do the fishing contest in Booty Bay every Sunday, it gives you a goal to shoot for and you’ll level without thinking about it as you run around trying to ninja pools of tasty fish. Remember that fishing levels based on successful catches as well, so fishing in lower levels where you catch every time is going to get you there faster, so go grab stacks of deviates.

    Several weeks ago I finally got sick of buying Golden Fishsticks, so I decided to level up my fishing and cooking. I was at 235 fishing and boy did that take months to get there! I spent one hour in the canals in Stormwind just casting repeatedly until I got to 285 fishing.

    At 285 fishing you can fish in Hellfire, but you won’t catch anything, so I used the Baubles to up my skill and fished the pools in Terrokar Forest. Golden Darter pools abound and within an hour I had caught 60 Golden Darter.

    Once you’ve got a goal like catching the darter, crawdads, or other food buff fish, fishing becomes a whole lot more enjoyable!

    I’ve been doing dailys and getting one or 2 points a day.. its a hard slog but I do want it maxed. I leveled my cooking for the blackened basiliks so I undestand your reasoning Kryilean – Im actually hoping to make money by fishing pure waters eventually.. I’ve never done a fishing comp though.. I might have a go.. 😛
