[Fishing] 5.2 Fishing Junk

  1. el <Nat Pagle's Love Child>, 1 year ago:

    In addition to the headline 4 new Tiny Carp battle pets (see 5.2: Tiny Carp Battle Pets), Wowhead shows a range of new junk items which sound rather fishy:

    All fit in the Tackle Box. Hard to get excited about junk, I know, but sometimes this points to further additions, as yet unseen.

    This is fishy, especially since they actually have pretty telling names.

    Very early days, with a lot of research to do, but it looks like junk catches (from insufficient skill) have been removed in 5.2. Instead catches that would have been junk yield the trash fish - i.e. extra Golden Carp.

    So a first test in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms at 600 skill gave around 75% Golden Carp. That's roughly the 47% Golden Carp expected with sufficient skill, plus 47% of the overall catch as junk. At 815 skill, I got 50% Golden Carp, against an expected junk catch of 2%.

    Clearly this needs mountains more data, especially outside Pandaria, so all might yet change. But that's my first gut feeling.
