I'd like to fish up a few stacks of Lavascale Catfish as soon as possible. Since Deepholm is locked until 82, any estimates as to how hard it might or might not be to fish in Uldum at level 80? Would it just be constant aggro from mobs, or are there some relatively safe spots?
[Fishing] Fishing in Uldum at 80?
Last hotfix notes included (and posted few threads back)
Crafty players again found a way to catch Cataclysm fish. Crafty designers have made this impossible without a Cataclysm key attached to a player’s account.
So there is no way anymore to fish in these zones until release. Also, unless using an exploit, it was never possible to fish inland waters in these zones, at least in Uldum for those fish.
On release, with flying enabled, it should be possible to find a safe spot.
Oh, I didn't mean now, I meant on release. I know it was hotfixed. Sorry I didn't state that more clearly.
I just wasn't sure if there would be relatively safe fishing areas for me if I fly a level 80 character out there, or if it would be a constant stream of mobs aggroing me because they'd be 4-5 levels higher.
If you are flying it will be fairly easy to find safe open waters in Uldum: For example, at neutral town of Ramkahen in the centre, or waters on the north-west side of the Obelisk of the Moon. Pools will be somewhat harder, because there are plenty of high-level crocodiles along the river bank. Without flight, fishing is possible, but not so easy: Inland fish can be caught in the delta of the river, just south of the Lost City of the Tol'vir, which can be reached by swimming along the coast.
I tried the Uldam locations you mentioned today and found them to be the easiest spots to fish cata fish that I have tried. Not only are there tons of schools all around the areas mentioned but the aggro ranges and mob dispertion lends itself well to fishing for low level characters. My toon is level 31 and she is having a blast sneaking into the high level areas to ninja fish. I was able to catch a ton of fish, grab a few flight paths and explore the beautiful ruins around the area without dying more than 5 times or so. Highly recommended!
yeah ive been fishing uldum nearly exclusively. with water walking (or levitate) you can pretty much avoid 99% of the alligators. There are two spots in the northern part of the lake outside of ramkahen and another a couple pools north of that those water snakes will jump up and grab ya.
