Fishing Relm First Failure

Posted December 7th, 2010 by Miss Mediocre

I didn’t manage to get the relm first for fishing, though I don’t believe that’s my fault! When the server finally switched over, it wouldn’t let me log back in for 10 minutes. Then by the time I was fishing level 499, someone on the Horde got the achievement. I was pretty sad, but wondered how they had managed to get so many more points than me in just those 10 minutes when I couldn’t log on!

I figured I’d finished my fishing off, and flew a little ways down the river from where I’d been standing in Uldum. I have no idea why, but once I started fishing just down the waterfall from where I’d been, literally like 2  seconds from where I was, I started getting a point every cast instead of every 10 casts! I finished my last 25 points in 3 minutes, when the previous 50 points had taken me 2 hours!

I’m pretty disappointed, if I had lost fair and square it wouldn’t be that bad, but between me being unable to log on right away, and then the strange fishing bug that had me getting a point every 10 casts instead of every cast just down river, I feel kind of cheated.

Oh well, I posted all the fish I got in the AH for 1500g a stack, lol. No one has gotten the Relm first Cooking yet, so perhaps someone will buy them. I also now have 525 fishing, so I guess that’s good too.

    Awww :( I was routing for you; I’m very sad you didn’t get it. You’ll just have to do it in 2 years or so when the next expansion comes out :)

  2. Crowelf

    Sorry to hear about your fishing. I was hoping you would get it!

  3. Remy

    Ahh… so sorry to hear! I’m amazed that no-one has gotten realm first cooking on your server (although I’m sure they have by now). People seemed to be getting that achievement within 5-10 minutes of the realm being up. I tried for the Realm First for mining, but missed by about 5 minutes. :(

    Yeah, I had the same problem with mining… Someone got it in an hour on my server, and I was on a 20 minute handicap because I couldn’t log on. That was kinda lame. ._.”

    Oh, I made a Worgen on Terenas. You’ll never guess his name. ;s

    Miss. M. You didn’t do anything wrong. I followed your plan exactly CoT to Uldam and fish away. I logged in 16 minutes after launch and was off. Had to ditch the waterfall and go down the river. I was also an average of 8-10 casts per point from 450-500. After 500 it was 1 point per cast. I did the last 25 points in 10 minutes (I had a disconnect). I am happy to report that thanks to your suggestion I managed to get Realm First Illustrious Angler. I realize it’s not the same but take solice in the knowledge that you were instrumental in at least one person’s successful bid for realm first. If I could share the achievement with you I definitely would.

    PS. Now I need to petition Blizzard to give me a title I can wear around SW :)

    Thanks again, and that PS was not meant to rub salt in any wounds.

    Hi miss! I get the archivement at RAGNAROS realm with !. My Pj “Kimiraikonen” Tauren Druid Horde. Thanks for your help ando your interesting blog!

    About the same thing for me; took me a few minutes to log on, and I was a couple minutes behind getting to 525. I had been only about 1 1/2 points behind them. (Fishing on the same dock, and I got one of my guildies to inspect for me.)

  9. Nevyn

    I failed too :( I couldn’t log in for 1hr 10 mins though so in my heart I knew I’d lost it :( I was at 495 when it dinged up & I’d managed a rate of about 30 points an hour so doing the maths, I might have made it if it weren’t for the login jam :(

    Big gratz to those of you who managed it :)

    I did get guild first to Illustrious for my skinner & guild first to 81 but that’s an unofficial race that’s still ongoing 😀

    Shakure : Thanks :) I’ll definitely be trying again then!

  11. Miss Mediocre

    Crowelf : Thanks :) It was sad, but the fun I’ve been having with the rest of Cataclysm has already made up for it, hehe.

    Remy : Lol, it turns out they got it so fast on my server, I hadn’t even been able to connect yet when someone got it! I’m glad I wasn’t going for that at least! That sucks that you were so close to getting the one for mining, but I bet you could make a fortune from selling the ore!

  13. Miss Mediocre

    Rathay : It was VERY lame! I mean, I get it, but you’d think they’d make a better effort to work that sort of thing out if they are going to have things like world firsts and server firsts!

  14. Miss Mediocre

    Rathay : Thanks for the chat! Made my digging much more bearable for a little while :)

  15. Miss Mediocre

    Geargrinder : Aw, this makes me feel way better about not getting it myself! Thanks! 😀 I’m so glad my planning at least helped someone achieve a server first! Yaay! :) It’s so weird that they’d make it one cast for every point after 500, but 8-10 up to that? Lol, at least I hadn’t just been fishing in the wrong spot!

  16. Miss Mediocre

    Alejandro : Congratz on the server first! Again, I’m glad my fishing post was at least a little helpful to others going for it, even if I didn’t get it myself 😀

  17. Miss Mediocre

    Indy : The lost time because I couldn’t get on right away was definitely what made me the most disappointed. Being that close must have been painful :( I’m sorry for your server first loss!

  18. Miss Mediocre

    Nevyn : Oh wow, I would have been freaking out a bit had I been forced to wait that long to get in! So sad :( Congratz on the guild firsts though! 😀
