I just wish they would remove Master Angler of Stranglethorn from the Accomplished Angler achievement. I have spent over a year trying to do this on my server, which considering my time zone means getting up before the sun rises.I have gone as far as getting a warlock and two friends ready to summon me when done, and all of the other tricks; I have not won yet. Basically this make the achievement impossible for people who casually fish.

It's more than possible to do it as a "casual" fisher. There's just a bit of luck and strategy involved. Make a trip over to El's, she has a guide for it.

At best, you're competing with everyone on your server on even grounds, with only one winner per week. If only 53 people are trying and they stop when they win once, that still means that SOMEONE can't win after a year of trying.That's hardly "more than possible" for a casual, given the fact that there were people lining the shoreline in the hundreds every time I've gone to the event on my server. Between the odd timeframe and the amount of friends you need in case you happen to get lucky, it's not an event for a casual player to win without being extremely fortunate.I'm not saying that it's good or bad that the achievement's so rare (with only 52 possible winners a year, and not all those even getting the title, and those that DO get the title possibly not displaying it) I imagine that seeing a "Salty" Character will be a pretty rare event.

I won the tourney twice my first two tries. Some tricks I learned from others before I attempted it: Be prepared 15 minutes before the start of the tourney with your gear equipped, your hearthstone SET TO THE INN in Booty Bay, a Swiftness Potion in your pack. Head north, then as soon as the pools spawn, start fishing on the NORTH end of the west coast and move south. Don't share pools, move on. If you're reasonably high level, you don't need to clear the mobs around you. If you 35+, don't worry about mobs, just bring water walking elixirs and use them to fish from the water and take shortcuts across instead of riding/mounting. Don't stand on the shore. Re-cast your line immediately if it doesn't land IN the pool and readjust your position. The second you catch your last fish, HEARTH, drink your swiftness pot, and run to turn in your quest. Decide which reward you want before you get there, because if someone else comes, they can beat you if they choose first.
