    Northrend's New Kalu'ak Fishing Derby!

    Update - The US PTR Testing of Festergut is now finished and we didn't really see anything new (except maybe for the 5 minute enrage timer). The boss was properly tuned this time and a lot of guilds couldn't kill him this time. The news post has been moved to the Raids & Dungeons forums.

    Northrend's New Kalu'ak Fishing Derby!
    [blizzquote="Slorkuz;http://blue.mmo-champion.com/1/11155811788-2610-northrends-new-kaluak-fishing-derby.html"]Coming in patch 3.3.0, the esteemed tuskarr of the Kalu'ak are proud to introduce to Northrend the Kalu'ak Fishing Derby, a test of fishing skill with a healthy dash of luck! Every Wednesday beginning at 8 PM players can try to catch the elusive Blacktip Shark. Elder Clearwater sits in Dalaran for one hour awaiting the return of the quickest, most experienced fisher to bring him the first catch of the night. This champion fisher will be rewarded in-kind for his or her fishing expertise. Those who aren’t able to return with the first catch will still receive just reward for getting the Blacktip Shark to Elder Clearwater before he takes his leave.

    It is said that these sharks’ favorite meal are the bite-sized Pygmy Suckerfish. Perhaps a hook in their waters will do the trick. Because of the increased concentration of fish, you have an increased chance to catch a shark from fishing pools. Don't forget, in patch 3.3.0 you never catch trash from fishing pools, regardless of skill.

    The derby winner will receive a substantial chunk of experience (or money at maximum level) and gain 5000 reputation with the Kalu'ak. In addition, the champion will be given a choice between two unique rewards:

    Dread Pirate Ring
    Binds on Account
    Unique-Equipped
    Finger
    +34 Stamina
    Requires level 1 to 80 (80)
    Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 53.
    Equip: Improves hit rating by 29.
    Equip: Experience gained from killing monsters and completing quests increased by 5%.

    Boots of the Bay
    Binds When Picked Up
    Feet
    Requires Fishing (200)
    Equip: Increased Fishing +15.
    Use: Whisks you away to the finest drinking establishment in Booty Bay. (1 Day Cooldown)

    To keep it interesting, the Achievement "Master Angler of Stranglethorn" has been changed to "Master Angler of Azeroth." This can be earned by winning either the Kalu'ak Fishing Derby or the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza.

    Please bear in mind this feature will be undergoing testing on our Public Test Realms and is subject to change prior to the release of patch 3.3.0.

    The 5000 reputation sure hurries it up a bit.

    It is caster it is everything that is universal.
    Stamina: Everyone needs it
    Crit: Everyone needs it
    Hit: everyone needs i

    I guess it might not work perfect for healers

    Re: Northrend's New Kalu'ak Fishing Derby!

    aha so 25% maximum now, will it be the end? (experience) with the new boa ring.
    I assume there will be an spell power ring too, if so and if they stack a maximum of 30% if your in for it

    Edit: People reply to fast, seems to be an "universial" ring or whatever whoever called it. An ring for everyone, with hit & crit
