I got Draenor Angler, because I wanted to catch the big fishies in my garrison pond (so I never have to go out and fish elsewhere again, like I just did for the achievement).

After that, I wasn’t too enthused about tracking down Nat Pagle, but I did have 24/25 followers, so I could use another one.  I had to chase him to Pandaria where I met this charming fellow.

Oh. Ha. Ha.

Oh. Ha. Ha.

 

Then Nat sends me out to every zone to catch fish, because I didn’t JUST do that for Draenor Angler.  Whatever, jerk.

Now he’s my follower.  He’s not the most useful guy on the block, but he sells a land shark.  Guys, LAND SHARK.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, shut up, you’re a fetus.

Last point is fishing quests.  I was doing the fishing daily for my garrison pretty regularly while I was leveling up fishing.  However, even when I’m maxed out, I still do it because I get 2-5 primals out of the backpack of goodies – and it costs me no time.

See, I never gutted those fishies that I grabbed for Draenor Angler.  They’re sitting in my bank.  So when I get a quest for Fat Finless Blimper Eggs, I go to my bank, gut the appropriate fish (usually twice) and then hand in the eggs to doofy when I return to my garrison.  Easysauce.

I also got Pinchington the crab, my new favorite pet, out of one of the packs.

More Fishing. Clearly, I am an Idiot. — 2 Comments

  1. And you can send those fish to level 90+ alts who don’t have fishing maxed, so that they can do the fishing quest with no effort and get 15 points of fishing every day.

    • Oooo that is a plan. I don’t have any relevant alts at the moment because slogging through Draenor is rather time-consuming. I don’t feel like this expansion is very alt-friendly.

      If I feel generous, I could give the un-gutted fishies to thehusband. I guess.
