Don’t tell Zupa, but I think fishing sucks.
It sucks in real life!
It sucks in WoW!
It probably doesn’t help that I a neither a good fisherman in real life or WoW.
Likewise, I tend to run about like, well like a little hyperactive Gnome, in real life and WoW.
The one fish I remember catching in Real Life was from the once majestic (before white settlement) Murray River.. it was a carp.
I was so excited… my Dad and Uncles laughed while they killed it and threw the vermin back into the river to feed the native species.
I had a little WoW time on Wednesday night, so I thought that I would try out the fishing dailies everyone is talking about (while I waited for something, anything, better to happen). Turns out any Gnome and their dog can do them, so why not.
I wasn’t put off that I had to go to Winter Grasp to fish.
I even quite proudly told the whispering Mage that yes you could catch things in Winter Grasp, after all, that’s what the daily asked for.
And catch I did…
Driftwood… I am sure I can make something out of that… an ashtray perhaps?
Piece of glass…. Not quite the epic gem I was hoping for, that my friend had hauled in 30 minutes earlier. (Which I jokingly said Marcia stole from me the night before when she got me rolling drunk…)
Tangled Fishing Line… most likely mine in the 1st place…
Sure wish I could smoke them to make the cancerous fishing pain go away…
Mmmm maybe if I collect enough of these, I can stitch them back together and make a couple of hankies… maybe even a flying carpet?
Painful childhood memories of that carp come flooding back…
Still I did manage to catch the required fish, I even managed to get a couple of fishing skill points.
No, it didn’t take me 500 fish to complete the quest (but ohhh did it feel like it!)… but just shows you what an avid FisherGnome I am, doesn’t it…
So what uber reward did I get for my fishing exploits…
Can anyone spot the irony in that?
I didn’t really feel any smaller… I didn’t look any smaller either, well not to me.
I sort of consider it a bad joke… where’s the steriods?
Epic in it’s simplicity
I finally got around to equipping it… just for laughs.
I think is is absolutely beautiful in it’s simplicity… look back at those other weapons I have been picking up.. Scary sure, but beautiful?
This one even has a glow all it’s own!
Patchwork Quilt (aka the Gnome got a rug)
Funny looking pet… I like to call it a MOUNT!
Actually, you can call it mount number 10… yes, yes, I know, nothing to write home about.
Anyway, from now you can refer to me as Gnomeaggedon, Stable Sweeper of Gnomeregan
What’s that, it’s stable keeper?
Pfft… like I ever ride any of the other mounts…
I am pretty excited about this.. I remember the day fondly when WoWinsider WoW.com announced the coming of the flying carpet and how excited I was when Spooner shared some discovered screenshots of the flying carpet. I’m sure I had a post about video of the flying carpet… but I just can’t find it.
Anyway, to leave you today, I give you:
Gnomeaggedon, Stable Sweeper of Gnomeregan and his Magnificent Flying Carpet!
Yes it sucks that I only play at night… so all my pictures are dark…
Gnomer and Out!
