Items and Equipment
Like Keredria, I’m among the fortunate minority of players who enjoys the Fishing tradeskill. I find it to be not only relaxing but lucrative. An hour’s worth of dedication can provide enough piscine consumables to cover a week’s worth of raiding, often with enough to share with needful guildmates. I primarily fish the Sporefish and Steampump Debris pools of Serpent Lake in Zangarmarsh, gathering a stack or two of Sporefish to bake up into Blackened Sporefish (which, according to previous calculations, are twice as valuable to me as Golden Fish Sticks).
Today is my birthday, and knowing my love for Fishing, my friend Valenna camped E-Bay for two weeks to get me the following:
This item is acquired by redeeming a code from a special card sometimes included in decks of the “Through the Dark Portal” expansion to the World of Warcraft TCG. As you might imagine, it’s a pretty rare item, and I’m the first I’ve seen on Scarlet Crusade to have one. A few things I’ve discovered in my brief time using it:
- Its duration is limited to three minutes. Unfortunately, if you’re in the middle of a cast when it poofs, you’ll lose your line.
- No one else can sit in your chair.
- If you set up your chair too far into the water, you may not be able to sit in it, even if you were able to stand in that spot.
- The chair can be used anywhere that’s considered “outdoors.”
I really love my chair. It’s going to make fishing that much more interesting and enjoyable. Along those same lines, wouldn’t it be great if Druids in Cat Form could catch fish by swimming through pools and activating an ability? The necessary dynamics are already in the game and first seen in the Red Snapper – Very Tasty! quest in the Draenei starting area. I really enjoyed that quest on my Draenei, and it seems a shame not to reuse the work that went into coding it.
