I was just reading that earlier, looks like fun! I tend not to get
around to the super-complicated secret mounts, but fishing? Well I've
been bored of fishing in recent expansions but I'm having fun with it
this time out, I think having the tuskarr as a faction has got me back
into it, and that otter mount looks cool :-)

Absolutely cool. :)

I've always liked fishing. Especially since I did the fishing ach's in
Northrend. So now I'm focused on maxing out Tuskarr asap. :)

I consider buying subbing for a year and relax with the game. The state
it's in now... I love it!

I used to love it, I'm glad the tuskarr are getting me back into it!

Yeah I'm having way more fun than I did in Shadowlands, that's for
sure, some slight irritations but overall it's a very positive
feeling, the upcoming patches sound positive too, so here's hoping it
continues being as good :-)

Got him! I hit lucky last week and fished up a whole gold coin, been
doing it bit by bit since and finished tonight - my bad habit of
hitting my fish bind too fast while looting nearly bit me though, saw
the Kingfin fish in the loot window, right as I pressed the button and
it closed without me getting the loot, argh! Luckily RNG was on my
side and it dropped again 5 casts later, but that could've bee very
annoying indeed... lesson learned to be more careful when looking for
rare things!

Grats!

I got a gold coin 2-3 days ago as well. But I wasn't aware how many I
should farm of those, but 1 seems to do it. My plan was to look at it
later, but I look at it tonight. :)

I'm farming 3 draconium Nuggets in leaper pools sigh... *crying with 163
prismatic leapers and zero nuggets in my bags*

Seems to just be 1, yeah, I got my shades on the first bag anyway,
although one or two comments say it's not 100%, most people get it
first time. After that it wasn't bad going at all, better droprates
than I expected so fairly chill and fun, and a very cute mount at the
end of it :-) Love that otters get 100% swim speed, so I actually have
a use for a non-flying mount in this dragonriding expansion - he gets
used when I do the "scare the pesky ottuks" daily ;-)

>I'm farming 3 draconium Nuggets in leaper pools sigh... *crying with 163

Might be pure luck but I find those seem to drop more often in magma
thresher pools if you've unlocked lava fishing - especially if you
find an "overheated" pool, those have higher chance of all rare drops
(in the same way if you get lucky and find a "deep" ice fishing pool,
that has a better chance of the upgrade items too - only those are
pretty rare; I've only seen one once!).

Southwest of Obsidian citadel you'll find a "Daring Fisher" on an
island in the lava (who is a fishing trainer so shows on the minimap
if you have trainers tracked), and there's often pools near him, I
always check that spot when I'm in the area; the fish aren't worth a
lot now but they're prospectable and I'm a jewelcrafter so I just
prospect them instead, seeing as they cost much the same as ores.

I just wish I could max out any of the harpoon/net upgrades and get
some of the junk out of my bags, between that, rep handins, shovels,
conches and crafting taking up tons of space (oh boy, crafting... 11
types of gem, multiple different parts, elemental bits and ores... and
most have 2-3 different levels...), bag management is no easier than
usual lol, the reagent bag only goes so far!

*sigh*, sense of direction, of course I meant south*east*! Helps if I
don't send you entirely the wrong way...

I checked lava fishing again as it appears in my fishing journal. It's
unlocked until renown 15. I'm at 13. That explains why I haven't seen any.

I also understand I can acquire perception to my fishing pole. Honestly
I haven't understood all this deftness, perception and other. I have
looked for a guide, but haven't found any.

This person says his/her fishing pole has 151 perception. I'm just
puzzled here. :)

Ahh, yeah - shouldn't take too long to get there though, especially if
you do the soup event in Iskaar a few times, that gives fairly good
rep (check wowhead front page for when it's next on, "community
feast")

New fishing poles always come with perception, which increases chance
at rare drops when fishing/gathering. The guy with 151 perception
probably has
https://www.wowhead.com/item=198226/khazgorite-fisherfriend with a
https://www.wowhead.com/item=200048/enchant-tool-draconic-perception
enchant and some other buffs stacked up.

I've been using
https://www.wowhead.com/item=198225/draconium-fisherfriend until a
couple of days ago (with no enchant as I only recently learned they
can be enchanted!) as it's cheaper and not BoP so doesn't require
making a crafting order using mats I don't have. Works fairly well
although I'd certainly like better rare droprate, couldn't complain
about it when I did Otto though (only upgraded my pole afterwards when
my other half got the recipe)

Other profession stats to know about:

Deftness: gather faster
Finesse: gather more of the base item (ores, herbs etc)

Multicraft: chance to craft multiple items (only works on stackables,
if the crafting window doesn't mention it, don't bother)
Resourcefulness: chance to save some of your mats
Inspiration: chance to craft as though you have higher skill, which
may give you a higher quality item
Crafting speed: selfexplanatory

https://www.wowhead.com/guide/professions/secondary-stats probably
expalins it better than me though! It's complicated but I've grown to
like it, especially when multicraft procs on an expensive gem ;-)

I bought that pole on AH last night after I wrote my previous answer. I
also found out I could buy other stuff for my profs that I could put in
the empty slots. :)

You have done an excellent job for an old man like me. :) But that
guide looks pretty good.

Yep, green quality professions gear is all BoE - btw take note of the
ilvl, higher ilvl has higher stats, much like regular gear :-) Blue
quality is all BoP but can be ordered through crafting orders, I've
only bothered for a few slots though, generally I wait till one of my
own characters or my other half can make them.

Hehe yeah I wish I'd found that guide sooner, would've been useful to
me too at first, I just learned a lot through trial and error and
reading reddit posts (I read the woweconomy subreddit, everyone there
knows so much more than me that a lot goes over my head but I absorb a
few useful things anyway).
