Fishing Daily Rewards are Unsatisfactory...

General Discussion
Post Limit:
It seems as though the rewards from the Orgrimmar fishing dailies are fairly disappointing. I've been doing the dailies since they were available, and all I've gotten from it is vendor trash that sells for 2c. Leveling fishing is a pretty time-consuming thing, and in the past the fishing dailies have offered cool and fun rewards (new fishing poles, little pets, vendorable grays that sell for decent amount) which I always thought was cool that Blizzard was rewarding us for leveling fishing. I did the fishing dailies whenever I could throughout BC and WOTLK, but I'm finding the moment I hit 525 and I no longer need the skill-ups it awards,

I will have absolutely no reason to continue doing them. Could we please see some of the cooler rewards that BC and WOTLK offered? Or perhaps even new, updated fishing gear? The current rewards are minimal, and are the same items offered in WOTLK. For those of us that already have the Strand Crawler and fishing hat from previous expansions (the only two rewards from the "new" fishing daily), there's really nothing for us from this daily. I continue to do my JC and cooking dailies to get new patterns, but fishing seems to be fairly underwhelming. Any other fishers feel the same?

I love that Blizzard gave us fishers something to do, and to look forward to every day, I'm just sad and hoping Blizzard will add something in the future to our new daily; something to make this profession more glamorous.

TL; DR Fishing daily rewards are all 1c vendorable grays. What ever happened to cool pets/items that we used to get in previous expansions that made leveling fishing rewarding?
yup...the only cool thing i got from doing it everyday was a little crab companion...and that's it.

they should rename that bag into..."bag of crap"
Ive often thought about doing the daily in Dalaran for the fishing pole.

That or level my rep with the Walrus people for the other one.

I agree with ya bro

The problem is that the quest is available at-- oh, level 10-- so that's what the rewards are tuned for.

The only reason at all to do the daily is to get those last few skill points.
Yeah the cata fishing dailies are rather lacking. Maybe they will had something to the bag in one of the patches.

I'm not sure you could really say the rewards are tuned for level 10s, either. But I agree - it seems to exist only to get those last insane points in fishing
I agree, once I hit 85 I'll only do the fishing/cooking daily if I'm bored--and just for guild rep at that.

Nothing fishing-based would be overpowered for a level 10. In fact, the rewards have all been non-combat pets, fishing poles, items that give +fishing, etc. The occasional time you'll get a gray that vendors for 50g, but that could always find a way to scale to level (BOA-type gray perhaps that scales with level, determining how much it would vendor for).

It's not like I want any epics, I just want vanity things that give me a reason to continue doing these dailies. It's these types of things that kept me excited to level fishing in each expansion, and it's this expansion that I feel let down.
Most of them don't even stack.

I am disappoint.
The only good thing about the daily now vs in Dalaran, is that it gives you a skill point upon completion. I don't remember the Dalaran dailies doing that, and it's quite handy, since leveling fishing is a chore.
The reward is supposed to be the free +1 skill level, I guess.
Why give a pet when you can buy one from Bliz?

That Cataclysm wing of my collection is going to look pathetic.
The skill point is nice but once I'm 525 I'm not likely to bother.

I'll be doing the cooking dailies until I have every Cataclysm recipe available from the cooking rewards vendor...

I too am planning on doing the cooking and JC daily everyday, but the fishing daily just doesn't offer anything worth my time to complete it.

Well, it's called, "Bag of Shiny Things". For what I get out of it, I usually replace the 'n' in Shiny with two 't's...
I got a crab pet once. Still waiting on a second drop that's not completely useless.
