Crafty old tree gets the Old Crafty Achievement
I was doing the quest
I realised that I was in Ogrimmar and no one was attacking me. Time to go fish for the old crafty achievement. Not wanting to waste my time I checked that you could fish him whilst in the quest phased state of orgrimmar.
All looked good so I grab a beer and sit back for the epic fishing session. Many beers later, and 1000 fish caught achievement and level 450 fishing long gone I still haven’t caught old crafty. from what I read this was high but not uncommon
My six pack of light beer was gone so were many hours. I was ready to give up but the OCD in me couldn’t let go. Time to go searching for further tips to help.
Then I stumble across the Crocolisks in the City bug/exploit/better way of doing things.
Here’s how it works.
Go to shattrath and pick up the daily fishing quest.
go to orgrimmar and fish. Throwing back the baby crocolisk each time you catch it. Eventually you’ll get both.
Within 5 casts I had both Old crafty and the baby crocolisk. Daily done and achievement done. I was lucky enough that the fishing daily that day was the right one.
People have reported up to 50 casts. But its a whole lot better than 1000 plus.
So it may be a cheat. But i was wondering how these people were knocking it off. Having done the hard yards buy fishing for hours I took the alternate path and was done in minutes.
Good luck all.
