Oh yes I have got achievements.

In my ongoing quest to get the "Salty" title I have been working on the fishing achievements for some time now. Other than the Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Extravaganza I am at the mercy of the RNG. Over the last week I have spend more than 4 hours after raids trying to fish up Brann Bronzebeards coin from the Dalaran fountian. 1 Freeking coin! well over 4 hours, and Friday night after a totally awesome Ulduar 10 PuG the RNG showed pitty on my soul and gave me the final coin I needed to complete "There is gold in that there fountain" and finally give me "The Coin Master" achievement. That is 10 hours of my life I will never get back. Have I mentioned how much I hate achievements? I am a little OCD, and once one pops up on my screen, I feel it necessary to pick up all related achievements. It is really a drag.


  1. You are a sad, sad achievement whore. And fishing no less? UGH, if it weren't for me being such a cheap SOB, I would have bought Northrend flying for everyone already and wouldn't have leveled fishing while waiting for the patch.

  2. Gz although I reckon the fishing competition is the hardest part of Salty. Personally I have kindof abandoned that set of achievements purely as I can't ever seeing myself winning the competition.

    It doesn't help that the one sunday in months I could have took part, I utterly forgot about it!
