So a friend had asked me to start a new character with them, and having nothing better to do, I accepted. After the typical starting quests i found myself at lvl 12 in Ratchet with a fishing pole and some time to burn. I used some bait and quickly hit 75, few to Org and trained, flew back and got 150. Rather pleased with myself (and having a few gold from selling oily blackmouth's in the AH when i was in ORG) I hopped on the boat to Booty bay to grab my copy of "The Bass and you"...and was very sad to learn that apparently I could not read...
Even though I could cook and bandage above 150 (both which require books to learn) and skin/mine/gather herbs above 150 at my level, I could not fish above 150. Anyone know the reasoning behind this?
While i understand the higher the required level to fish, the more dangerous the location, this should be a risk/reward choice I should be able to make on my own.
What's your opinion of being forced to level to increase your fishing level cap, while other "secondary" professions (and several primary ones) do not have this restriction?
