Rather be fishing…

Sorry about the long time between posts, but Nick and I are now college graduates!  Grats us!

Anyway, WoW has become my main passtime for the summer time, since I spend most of my days home watching my little brother who is on summer vacation as well.  This has, of course, led to me falling back in love with fishing – it happens every school break, probably because breaks would be the only period when I would have the time needed to fish in game.

And the WoW gods definitely want me to fish.  On the first day, I got my fishing from 120 to 330 and did the fishing daily quest twice (once during the day and once at 3am when the dailies reset).  The first time I did it, I got the strand crawler pet:

Okay, so I thought I was already pretty lucky, since the drop rate of this pet is apparently a little more than 1%.  When I do the daily again, I get the Jeweled Fishing Pole!  This fishing pole adds 30 fishing skill, which basically makes it so I don’t have to grind Kalu’ak rep.  Yay!

And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better…  I go try out my fishing pole in Skettis and fish up Mr. Pinchy on the first node!  AND I get the pet on the first use of the item!  (This is important because I’ve actually fished him up 2 times before and not gotten the pet.)

I’m starting to think that I really should have gone to northrend that night and tried to fish to get the mount, but I was too sleepy, haha.  Either way, that’s a lot of great stuff in one 24-hour period – a clear sign from Blizzard that I should continue fishing, haha!
