Amazing fishing luck.

Since the wife and the boy got out of school, it seems they spend the whole day waiting for me to get home from work and do stuff with them. This puts a serious crimp in my WoW playing. It seems the only time I can get guild free play time in is when "So you think you can dance" is on and Mrs. Skraps is watching it. (she has an excuse, she is a dance teacher)

This makes raiding damn near impossible, except for the odd OS/Mally raid that takes less than 30 minutes.

What does one do when their raid time is cut into 30 minute chunks? Go fishing of course. Since WotLK came out I have made an effort to get fishing to max level. during the BC era I only ever managed to get it to the 275-300 range, so now I am just 10 points away from max level and the fishing daily has been an amazing source of income.

In the last 10 days I received 2 Runed Stormjewels, one Solid Stormjewel, The Jeweled Fishing Pole, and the Strand Crawler. Now if anybody told me they got all that in 10 days I would call shinanigans, but it happened. Maybe the random number generator has finally decidet to show me a bit of love!

In addition to all the love from the fishing daily I also got this nifty little pet from the Dalaran sewers, in 3 casts, and a couple of nice achievements.

Hopefully tonight I will be able to get the last 10 points while the Mrs. is watching Sytycd.


  1. I smell a hack!

    Grats though, that's one hell of a string of luck

  2. That's seriously amazing luck, I've been doing the fishing daily a lot since 3.1 and I've had all of 1 fishing hat and nothing else. Grats!

  3. If it makes you feel better, I have been doing both the Dalaran and Outland dailys and the freekin hat still eludes me.
