After weeks of doing the daily fishing quest, I finally got the Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat in my goodie bag. Woot!! Of all the various items that drop, this was the one I most wanted to have. Having been to the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza a handful of times, I have nothing to show for my efforts except the Eternium Fishing Line. It’s hard to feel like a Master Angler when you don’t have any beefy gear to help you look the part, so I was desperate to have this hat.
It’s been very annoying to fish every day and end up with more water-walking potions and fish hooks. But once I had my hat, I unearthed my 225 Tailor to make me some Blue Overalls to go with it. Here’s me hanging out with Old Man Barlo in my stylin’ fishing gear:
I really hope they continue to add new fishing content in WotLK. It tends to be the low man on the totem pole, but it’s SOOOO much better than pre-BC and I’d hate to see them drop the ball. Couldn’t you just see a folding chair with a cooler? Maybe even our own little rowboat to anchor off the coast of the Isle, heheh. Just add a brewski and you’re ready to kick back and relax while you wait for that 19 Pound Catfish to nibble on your line ;)
