    Fishing Skill worth anything in WoD?

    Just as the title says! I have a lot of time to kill till WoD (Well we all do XD ) and i'm curious if fishing skill will actually have a use unlike now. Is it worth farming things like Pagle's hat from rep and what not?

    Was it ever useful? I mean I like fishing and I leveled it with great enjoyment, but it was always the most random profession in a war-environment.

    I made a small fortune fishing in Cata because the feasts raiders used required 3 types of fish, one of which you couldn't get from pools. Fish aren't worth diddly in Mists. I'm hoping fishing makes a comeback in Warlords.

    There was a time when fishing skill mattered. It hasn't been that way in years. Anyone who has learned the skill can fish anywhere. I still don't understand the insane grind for Nat Pagle and his worthless heirloom fishing tome that gives alts max skill, considering the skill means shit.

    These are the changes we know about to fishing: http://www.elsanglin.com/fish/?s=WoD

    Fishing will always be useful for gathering fish, obviously. In mists fishing was less profitable because we were able to buy sacks of fish from ironpaw tokens and they weren't as necessary for feasts as there were other ways to gather the foods required, and just everything about the way the mats were gathered and who needs them. I don't think we are capable of knowing how valuable fish will be and how profitable fishing will be in WoD until the expansion actually comes out. And that value will vary per server.

    Fishing exists for a few rare drops, cooking mats and maybe mats for a few other crafting recipes. Most stuff however comes from pools. You don't need any skill to fish in pools. You only need it if you want to fish something outside of pools, which rarely happens as it stands. There's no real point building the skill up, it's more like an optional thing you could do when bored, to complete your character, or when required for specific goals you pursue.

    Well that's basically why the tome exists. You know you don't need something when Blizzard gives it out for free.

    But honestly, the grind isn't anywhere near insane when compared to others. 10 minutes per day on average and you're done pretty quickly. That's doable, and you get a nice little chair to set up in the evening sun in front of the gates of Orgrimmar with the Iron Juggernaut in the back and an ice-cooled drink by your side.

    There are too many design flaws in your game. As a result, your customers' game experience may be degraded. Fire or replace the failing developers if you don't want to see this message again.
