Yesterday, while we were doing our dailies in Kul Tiras, Soforah couldn’t remember if she had already completed a quest that pops up when you kill some specific mobs. If you ever ask yourself the same question, there is a command line to check if a specfic quest has already been completed.
You only need to replace “50897” by the number of the quest, which can be found on Wowhead. Simply search for the quest, then copy the number from the url:
If it returns false, you never completed it, while true means you already did.
One of the things I love to do in World of Warcraft is “Fishing”. So, when they told me there would be a fishing artifact for Legion, I was absolutely thrilled. The only thing that worried me a little bit were the rumours about how hard it was to get it and that it required an insane amount of fishing. None of that was true!
Already while leveling, I was quite curious to see that famous floating island northwest of Dalaran and our new fishing hero named Conjurer Margos. I directly fished up a fair amount of Drowned Mana on the island to buy “Arcane Lure” from Margos and used that everytime I went fishing.
With the “Arcane Lure” active, you can catch rare bait that grants you a buff in order to catch the rare fish which are needed for the achievement “Bigger Fish to Fry”. What normally should have been a so called long and painful process, was actually a pretty fast and fun way to complete this achievement. Most of the rare baits just give a two minute buff, but some were pretty special and added a funny note to the usual fishing experience.
Once you’ve reached level 110 and completed the “Bigger Fish to Fry” achievement, you can fish up a Luminous Pearl. This pearl can only be caught in pools and will start the quest chain to obtain the fishing artifact. Follow its instructions and head over to Khadgar (Dalaran), he’ll give you the quest “The Dalaran Fountain”, which sends you to Marcia Chase. Once you turn this in, a pearl will appear in the fountain.
Normally, Nat Pagle should appear and offer you the “Fish Frenzy” quest. Note that he might not show up straight (with me he didn’t), after a quick relog and waiting for a minute, he’ll finally appear near the fountain. Accept the quest he gives, it’ll bring you into a three step scenario located on an island infested with murlocs. This scenario is pretty short, but real fun.
I won’t spoil anything, not to ruin the experience. Once you’re done with the scenario, you’ll be sent back to Marcia Chase and she’ll award you with the Underlight Angler!
Now, the real fishing in Legion can begin! You can upgrade the artifact by catching the same rare fish as for “Bigger Fish to Fry”. These rare fish will stop giving fishing xp from now on and will give artifact power instead. Also, don’t do like me and head out to your class order hall for upgrading this epic fishing pole! The artefact forge is the pearl at the Dalaran fountain. There, you can upgrade your pole.
Fishing certainly became more interesting in this expansion. I haven’t started upgrading my “Underlight Angler” yet. I wonder how long it will take.
A few times a year, I manage to forget my lack of time and decide to re-roll. It happened again a few days ago when I started a new paladin. I enjoy these moments because they make me revisit the old content and remind me of quests that I had completely forgotten about.
That’s exactly what happened when I was levelling around Southshore and stumbled upon an old friend: Kingslayer Orkus of the guild “Red Like My Rage” (lol).
This awesome quest chain is without a doubt my favourite one ever created. The remembrance of that goofy Orc still brings tears to my eyes, but I won’t spoil anything 😉 If you’ve never completed this chain before, I highly recommend you do! Just fly to “the Ruins of Southshore” where you’ll find Orkus “drowning” in the water. He’ll give you the first quest to an awesome adventure!
