I used to hate, no abhor, fishing in WoW and to be honest it’s starting to swing back that way again.
I grew to enjoy it for a few reasons.
- It was slightly more productive than doing laps of Dalaran.
- There were achievements, lots of achievements, most of which could be scored while doing relatively productive fishing.
- I could plop myself somewhere while waiting for LFD or BGs to pop. No risk of missing queues and little movement required.
- While the activity itself had only moderate rewards as in achievements, it was the resource that could be quickly converted into a useful feast for the raid or BG (yes I popped a fish feast in most BGs – why not?)
My joy for fishing has dwindled a lot. The achievements, two of then, are pointless and unless I spend my time fishing in pools which are few and far between (or phased /sigh). I can’t even cook up the latest fish feast (for another 4,000 fish).
So as that kinda-joy dwindled I was tricked by otherwise sensible bloggers such as Miss Mediocre (who in every other sense writes great stuff) to try Archeology.
I know I am going to offend a lot of people with this next statement, but Archeology is as bad as Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Tine series (may he rest in peace) (more…)
