I just recently found this site after seeing it many times over the years in comments on wowhead and allahkazam. I must admit I'm impressed, I was not expecting a bunch of number crunchers and theorycrafters.
I've been steadily working on my fishing achievements and my salty title (cant wait :P)
I attempted the Extravaganza today for the third time in two years and actually won! Got my fishing pole and debating about going again next week for the trinket. This win got me 2 achievements away from my salty title.
Best advice I can give anyone for the extravaganza is don't play nice and dont be greedy! If you find yourself at a pool with others joining you, leave asap. If you get a chance to snake the last fish from a pool do so. There was a point where I had four other people joining the pool I was at and I mounted after the first cast, which happened to be the last.
Just a few hours ago I got my 15 pound mud snapper from Eversong Woods outside the gates to SMC on my 2nd cast (note: this was after the 1000+ casts in stonebull lake) thus leaving me one achievement away from salty.
I am really dreading trying to find the mr. pinchy pet, but he cant be that bad seeing as it took a friend of mine ~5 pinchys to get the lil bugger.
