Topic: Fishing on the coast of Darkshore?

  1. By Kylkiluut, on 09 February 2008:

    Has anyone else had problems with the pools north of Auberdine? They all seem too close to the shore and in very shallow water.

    I can't seem to fish any except a very few.

  2. By DarvenTHO, on 10 February 2008:

    I had this problem as well but the one that I found was south of Auberdine. I had heard that some pools around the area were extremely close to the shore. I tried standing in the water a ways from the pool and casting into it, but to no avail. There's my 2 cents...:)

  3. By Torgon, on 11 February 2008:

    The pool spawn areas in Darkshore are very poorly placed, so that sometimes you only get half to a quarter of the pool, and if you are not standing at the right angle (sometimes standing on rocks in the water) you will not be able to hit the pools.

    I once submitted a ticket on this and the GM responding said that Darkshore has "unusually low tides". I thought that was rather humorous.
