Level 200 fishing!

Got into the game right at launch and ran past the tutorial straight to the Windsward docks with the goal of hitting fishing level 200 as fast as possible. It took 36 hours in game, 32 for actual fishing and the rest being used to gather bait or run back and forth to town. Overall, I caught 2856 fish with 19 of them being legendaries.

Since I ran past the tutorial section I had no town quest lines available and wasn’t able to choose a faction or join a company. The only experience I really gained was from fishing, with small amounts from discovering locations as I passed through or from gathering hemp to make a fishing pole, and I ended up at just under level 27. Haven’t killed anything or used any weapons yet so they’re all still at level 1.


And now I go to sleep…

Gratz on your achievement.

I’ve played roughly the same amount of hours. I’ve done tonnes of questing and worked a little on most of the trade skills(except fishing xD) and I am also lvl26 lol.

Congratulations! Did you make anything out of it yet? ( gold/marketplace ).

I just wonder, if you got to 26 by fishing alone, how much whould it take to get to max level by gathering professions?

That’s cool man. That legendary % is really low. What perk(s) did you have on your fishing pole?

Reminds me of that other game where I was able to get to Dalaran an hour before other people could and got server first by fishing coins out of the well :smiley:

How much money did you make from fishing chests?
