Salty Enarka, the Fishy Lady, reporting in
I'd be very much bummed if I couldn't get the Realm First on the fishing achievement; nobody cares about fishing on my server. Literally.
But some people will want to fish just for the sake of having a Realm First that means NOTHING to them. It means more to me than it does for most people, simply because I've given up on everything in WoW for the sake of fishing, since it's all I actually have left to enjoy =)
I've had my share of PvP through High Warlord/Gladiator grinds from Vanilla through to BC, and having my guild disband 10/12 into Sunwell was just exasperating. I'm done with all the fancy, "meaningful" stuff. I'm now on a Roleplaying server, and fishing's my specialty!
The Realm First would be very fitting for my character, considering what I do with her. But 3AM, ouch! If I work, that means I'll have to call sick, and if I don't, well I better get the darn achievement, yeah ? Would suck staying up all night to powerlevel fishing without enjoying the new sceneries, only to come behind someone else .__.
For said reasons, I'm considering giving up on the idea.
It seems so unlikely. Assuming an 11.5 catches per fishing level average, this means I'd have to go through 862 fish! At 4.2 fish per minute (my personal average, calculated over a 40k sample =l), that's four hours of constant clickyclickclick.
I've done worse, but is it worth it, given the odds I don't even come in first ?
