Gone Fishin’

June 23, 2009

FishingwhiteOne of my favorite proffessions in the game and something all my characters pick up is fishing. There’s just something soothing about popping on a playlist in iTunes and settling in for a good fish. Thus far, I’ve managed Old Crafty, a Giant Sewer Rat, and my Titanium Seal of Dalaran. If you seriously want to geek out though, you should try getting something like Fishing Buddy that will keep track of your catch rates. Then you can fish and fish and fish because every fish caught will make your data more accurate and…! Ahem. Back on subject.

The thing is though, there’s more to fishing than booze and vanity items! Fishing can be a serious asset to you and your guild, allow me to expand upon this, a fine subject.

gold-coinsSo I had this weird bug a few days ago where I logged in and went to change servers and make a new character except that I got the message “You already have the maximum amount of characters allowed on this account.” This, in itself, isn’t that strange. Really, I’m a certifiable alt-aholic. Some little dwarf or tauren will magically appear in my head demanding that she be made NOW, and write her story. In any case, I had too many characters and went to do a general purge of those below level 10 on servers I’ll never go to again.

As I went through and deleted them, however… my character total didn’t go down. Oh no, it kept going up. To the point I had 60 some characters, including servers I know I’ve never played on (Read: PvP servers and me do NOT play nice).  If I clicked on the servers though, there was nothing in the character list. So… 7 characters server list, 0 within the server. After I restarted my computer and disabled my add-ons, all the “extras” had gone poof, I was down to 35 characters total, and I still can’t create new characters because I have the maximum allowed on my account.

I’ll tell you now, you will never have to create a character so desperately as when you are unable to do so. It chafes.

To occupy my time then, I’ve been going through the alts I do have and came across something rather strange. On Silver Hand I have a level 16 gnome mage, the only Alliance character I have on that server and only level 16. This is important. 16.

I logged on to see what she had and see if I should delete her when I happened to glance at her bags and see she’s carrying nearly 460 gold. Now, I don’t know about you, but upon joining a new server I can usually make a decent chunk of change from copper ore… this is ridiculous though. I don’t really remember what happened, but I think it had something to do with selling off Lovely Black Dresses last year Valentine’s. Crazy stuff, man.

Anyway, you have my apologies for a “filler” post, but I have to be going out of town to visit a family member whose health is failing. I’ll get back to some meatier stuff next week, promise.
