    Fishing

    Some time ago, I read a blue post stating that they intended to make fishing more fun and feel like less of a grind in cata..

    Has anyone in the beta had a chance to play around with it? What are the changes like, if any?
    Cheers

    No changes yet. Except for new fish in the new zones.

    I find it utterly laughable that people are having ZERO issues with android monks, cyborg dwarves, and shadow-warping gunplay assassins, but they throw absolute FITS if you suggest a timejumping tomboy might be gay or that a walking artillery-platform might self-identify as female.
    Apparently, the superintelligent jetpack gorilla from the Moon makes perfect sense, but chrono-displaced lesbians and transgender automatons is just ridiculous!

    I believe the new fishing dailies (in SW and Org) will award skill upon completion. IIRC they can all be done within the city and therefore require no fishing skill, so you can gain a handful skill a day by doing these quests, which are:

    a) (Slightly) more interesting than fishing in the canal.
    b) Earn you a bit of gold.

    Its not much, but thats all i've got.

    I think an easy way to make fishing more interesting is to add "crates" back in. Then allow a interesting variety of things to be found in them. They could drop mats (cloth, leather, ore), pots, flasks, and scrolls cooking receipes, a few other profession recipes, junk worth gold (like in the bag of fishing treasures), etc. Mabye even a few half decent pieces of gear on occasion.

    This would add least add some variety when fishing up a hundred of whatever buff fish you might be after, or the billion fish you have to catch to level up.
