Topic: School of Fish

  1. By el, on 03 May 2008:

    In the last few weeks, the infamous School of Fish in Elwynn Forest seems to have disappeared. Or moved. Or my realm is suffering from heavy pool-lag. Anyone else noticed it isn't there any more?

    I fished that school, long ago before they nerfed wall walking.

    Are you still able to get to it or just noticing while flying over?

    EDIT: I just flew over it and I could see it there, though it doesn't show up on the fish finder.
