Damn doodles we should hang out some time. I'm trying to get Master Angler by like level 15 which means avoiding killing stuff. Some of the water types that's easier said then done, but I kinda lucked out and avoided the worst places, like the Temple for Alik'r foul- I was able to knock that out at an easier spot.
I've seen and heard enough other people frustrate themselves on vet Maelstrom that I just never want to do it requiem. Seriously, being in guild chats listening to people get more and more frustrated by the mechanics put me off ever trying.
