7,800 Casts for Exalted with Nat Pagle...

General Discussion
Time to start watching videos while casting I guess. Atleast that's a lot of fish for grocery handins.
thank goodness i don't fish
I figured this was how I was going to 1.) get exalted with Nat and 2.) get enough Ironpaw tokens via grocery turn-in's to buy the BoA chef's outfit.
That's horrible.
This total or once you've unlocked the rep?? Cause if it's total then my hunter will have it once I reach Nat.
Holy cow.
Don't forget, after an upcoming patch, rep is doubled after Revered.

So basically, you can take off 25% of that, assuming you start from Neutral, Neutral to Exalted is:

3000
6000
12000
21000

Which is 42,000.

However, the 21000 of Revered->Exalted is *really* 10500, which makes it:

3000
6000
12000
10500

For a grand total of 31,500.

This means it should REALLY take 5,850 casts after the patch assuming you start from 0 Neutral.
Easy way to spot the fishing bots.
wait what is this pertaining to? catching the 3 daily fish quests or is there something I'm not seeing

friendship is not considered "reputation" by game mechanics...

you cant catch the fish quests until you are able to fish in MoP - you dont get friendship with Nat until you catch the fish quests...

In order to get some of the rewards from the Anglers, you need to be exalted with Nat Pagle; the rewards in question are the new fishing hat and the BoA fishing journal. To get exalted with Nat Pagle, you need to fish up rare fish from the waters of Pandaria. I've found one during grinding my fishing up.

ya I'm just wondering where this 7800 casts came from, i turn in the 3 rare fish every day, didn't know if there was another way to get rep as well
The catch rate for the fish is approximately 1%, so 78 fish turn ins at about 100 casts each.

The mimic and the gourami don't usually take more than a dozen casts each.

The spinefish was regularly a couple hundred, so I've stopped bothering with it.

i have fished four hours in each type of water - have yet to get ANY of the fish... yes i am 600 fishing

i guess this really is a case of RNG is RNG...
The effort and reward just don't seem worth the time. I've done a ton of fishing and have only caught one of the fish, and while I would love the hat I just simply have better ways to spend my time in game. If they wanted to make this something that only the most ridiculously dedicated fishermen will be achieving, then I guess it's fine the way it is, but for me I can just spend a few silver at the AH to make a bunch of Aquadynamic Fish Attractor's to avoid trash catches and go about my day.
