You know, they've made a lot of changes to fishing down the years in WoW. They've added achievements and better rewards and all sorts of things. So something as simple as daily quests wouldn't suddenly turn it into an addiction, would they?
No, certainly not. That's bound to happen.
OK, I am doing the quests, but they do net money, and reel in some Kirin Tor rep, too.
OK, OK, I admit it. I'm hooked. My fishing has lain moribund since I left Outland and its fishing dailies behind. But the new dailies have me going again, with my fishing rising rapidly, and my cooking to match. By the time the guild is raiding Naxx regularly, I should be a regular contributor of food into the raid consumables, as I've already got a huge stack of Northern Spices and most of the fish recipes. The eating's going well, too:
Fishing, of itself, is a very dull micro-game. But putting some of this other stuff around it really makes it much more fun. I hope Blizz takes the effort to add some more dailies into the rotation with each patch, because it's a great way to kill 5 mins10 mins 15 minutes in game.
