Why did I get the fishing pole instead of the trinket? QQ...
Once upon a time I may have considered my guild, Battle of Serenity, to be one of my greatest accomplishments (the fact that she lasted a little over a year with me at the helm baffles me to this day). I could choose a multitude of different raid focused achievements, various long awaited hunter pet tames, or I could highlight one of my various grinds. While there are many, many events and evenings that stick out on my mind when I reminisce over my many years in Azeroth, none are quite as potent as the day I managed to win that fishing derby down in Booty Bay.
Aggramar is a very old server; she is not only cranky, but she is highly populated. For several weeks I was tearing myself from sleep (for my sleeping schedule is odd) in order to catch both the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza and the Kalu'ak Fishing Derby only to be disappointed by the good luck and quick win of someone else. I'd steal the at the time boyfriend's computer, log on to Saz with all addons off (who had been positioned prior to falling asleep, just in case I was a touch late), and wait for the stress to begin. The day I snagged the achievement above was no different. The last 10 fish or so I had the shake syndrome thanks to our good ol' pal adrenaline something fierce. When I got my fish and hearthed back to the bay of the booty, I was surprised to see no one at the robot yet. Hastily I chose an item (whyyyy didn't I choose Hook of the Master Angler, whyyy?!) and the achievement popped. I don't think I've quite ever been excited as I was that Easter morning. Thank goodness for real world holidays bringing the server's population down a touch for a few hours.
The next day I managed to fish up a Dark Herring for the One That Didn't Get Away achievement I had the title that I had lusted over for a good year or two.
So there you have it, the hidden tales of Salty Saz. What a sea dog.
