|I came home from work today and found that one of my pet rats, Titch, had died suddenly. She was the youngest of my rats and showed no signs of being ill so it was a big shock and very upsetting. She was such a cheeky little sweetheart and I will miss her very much. I'm a sad panda today.|
|So I did what I usually do when I am stressed or upset - I fished. I like to throw myself into fishing - you can really zone out, I find it quite cathartic. |
|I figured I would cross off a few more fishing achievements to keep myself busy. I finished off The Scavenger, and then thought I would go to Stormwind for The Fishing Diplomat, and then I would head to Ironforge to try for Old Ironjaw. Unfortunately I forgot one vital thing: the Stormwind guards are now level 75 and see through my untalented kitty stealth from a million miles away. |
I sprinted and threw myself off the bridge leading into Stormwind, healed up and swam under the archways. Here's a tip for those of you trying to do the Diplomat - fishing under those archways (some of them have land inside) counts as being in Stormwind, and you will get credit for the achievement. This saves you having to run into the city.
Sadly I think I will have to wait until 80 to try for Ironjaw. I *could* do a bunch of corpse runs into the city, but that really doesn't appeal, especially since there is no fast way to get to Ironforge should I get tired and decide to try again another day. So instead I think I will put that achievement on hold until I can sneak into the city again.
I did, however, manage to fish up Old Crafty! But for some reason the game wouldn't let me loot him :( I got the achievement, but I still really wanted him in my bank. I put in a ticket but it wasn't answered before the servers went down. I hope the GMs send him to me in the mail.

For now, I'll keep plugging away at the 1000 fish achievement and trying to catch one of the rare fish for One That Didn't Get Away. So many of my alts have these rare fish - but now that I want to fish one up, I'm not having any luck. But... that's okay, in fact I probably prefer it that way, because I just love to sit and fish for hours. I'll likely be slightly disappointed when I've finished all of the fishing achievements.
