Well, eventually he will…I haven’t had the patience so far to dedicated myself to doing the fishing for it daily. But since I’ve had to explain to Kurby the process for getting rep with Nat Pagle a couple of times, I figured I’d do a quick blog post about it. All of my knowledge on the subject has came from the wonderful El over at El’s Anglin!
The only way you can get reputation with Nat Pagle is to fish up rare fish from Pandaria There are three types of fish and you can turn in one of each per day. You can also only ever have one of each in your bag. Theoretically you can fish up one of each, turn them in then fish up another of each for the next day if you don’t have time to fish every day. Sadly they also have a very low drop rate, so you may be fishing a while to get them all, or you may get lucky and get them quickly.
You get one from sha touched water, one from inland water, and one from ocean water. Before patch 5.1 you could only get them from open water, but El reported on twitter the other day that they also now drop from pools in those locations. The fish are Spinefish Alpha (sha touched water), Mimic Octopus (ocean water), and Flying Tiger Gourami (river water), each are unique bind on pickup. The catch rate between pools and open water is about the same, however fishing from pools nets more valuable fish, however if you want to just sit in one spot and aimlessly fish while watching netflix fishing from open water does have it’s perks of not having to move!
El states that it will take an average of 6000 casts to reach best friends with Nat Pagle, so don’t expect this to be a breeze. I personally have other things I’m working on at the moment so I limit my progress to fishing for raid food at the moment.
