Comments about Eastern Plaguelands
Below are readers' comments about "Eastern Plaguelands":
Jimbra, December 2010:
While waiting around in EPL to get nuked by Deathwing (still waiting...) I engaged in a little research fishing, to see if anything changed since the last patch.
I made 100 casts from the bridge just outside Light's Hope Chapel. I have 450 Fishing skill, and used a Kalu'ak pole with Eternium line...485 skill total. I deliberately did not use lures, to keep my skill at least somewhat closer to the zone level. Results:
49 Raw Redgill
1 37 Pound Redgill
21 Raw Sunscale Salmon
8 Raw Nightfin Snapper
7 Raw Mithril Head Trout
13 Oily Blackmouth
1 Lightning Eel (oddball catch, I think it must have been dumped from someone's aquarium)
I have read that the Bloated Redgill can be caught in EPL, but my sample size must have been too small to capture it.
Hope this data helps someone.
