As revealed last week by the book publisher Simon & Schuster, Inc. (Pocket Books), World of Warcraft: Arthas, Rise of the Lich King by Christie Golden was a complete success reaching # 16 in the New York Times Best Selling Books List (Under the Hardcover Fiction category) within barely 4 days after its official launch (April 21). The list appeared on New York Times Online this past Sunday. I was told recently that ARTHAS Collector’s Edition is almost sold out according to the publisher. Only 10,000 Collector’s Edition with Christie’s signature and wrapped in a leather-box were printed. You still have a chance at buying the few remaining while supplies last. Its hot and going with the wind. Hurry up! You can still order it exclusively here.
Rankings reflect sales, for the week ending Apr. 25, at many thousands of venues where a wide range of general interest books are sold nationwide. These include hundreds of independent book retailers (statistically weighted to represent all such outlets); national, regional and local chains; online and multimedia entertainment retailers; university, gift, supermarket, discount department stores and newsstands.
I have lately had the motivation to complete achievements and do stuff I have rarely done in the past 4 years since the original WoW beta. Fishing, while I did manage to max this profession on my original priest character, I did never bother to fish again. Specially after making my Blood Elf paladin my new main character.
I learned fishing on the paladin barely two or three days ago, mostly because my new obsession is to collect pets. Within a week or less I have gathered 54 pets, and now it is turn to gather those from Fishing rewards. Now that I have 363 fishing skill (without +skill), I decided to go after the Fishing achievements, and the Salty Title Reward.
That achievement is hard as hard can get because all of the requirements behind it. The harder requirements to get the Salty title reward are:
- Collecting all the copper, silver and gold coins: The Coin Master
- Master Angler of Stranglethorn
- Mr. Pinchy’s Magical Crawdad Box
That probably gave some evil memory vibes to those who were lucky to accomplish those, and probably cause a gasp at those like me starting the Fishing profession. It is hard because it takes so many hours worth of your real-life time. The Master Angler of Stranglethorn requires you to win the … Booty Bay Fishing Contest. Now considering the Stranglethorn Fishing Stravaganza contest only happens on Sundays (once a week) and that there are maybe hundreds of fishers in your server—that’s a astonishing feat to accomplish.
For now, let’s just focus on the easiest Fishing Achievements, shall we? This time I will focus on Deadliest Catch. If you have never done it, you need to go to Zul’Gurub and fish Gahz’ranka. We have a Deadliest Catch guide to help you do this achievement in the shortest time possible.
