So my recent fascination in WoW is fishing. I don’t know either, usually fishing makes me a little cross-eyed with tedium. But I’m having tons of fun with it. So far I’ve discovered that I can make a good bit of money with it as well.
In the last two weeks I’ve gotten both Aely and Angoleth’s fishing to 525, mostly in Deepholm and Twilight Highlands. The fish that are selling best for me are Lavascale Catfish, Albino Cavefish, and Deepsea Sagefish. While most of my catfish catches have gone to various raid-cooks for creating Seafood Magnifique, the cavefish and sagefish are just straight up auction house fodder. Fortunately, cavefish and sagefish are both fishable in schools as well, so you don’t have to meet the 550+ effective skill level required to not catch junk in Deepholm, for example, to still make a good chunk of money, as long as you’re willing to fly around looking for cavefish pools.
My next fishing project is Annorah, whose skill is only about 315, so she’s going to be catching Deviate Fish until she’s got the skill level to fish in Cataclysm zones. She’s got the cooking recipe already, and though it can take a little time to sell them, they do eventually move on the AH.
It’s a fun little diversion from leveling, which is pretty tedious the 4th and 5th time you have to go through Hyjal/Deepholm. Still definitely want Annalira and Annie Mae to be at 85 by the time Mists hits, and possibly Annata as well, but my inspiration for leveling waxes and wanes, and this has been a lot of fun for the last little bit.
Besides, Angoleth the Angler has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
