The Feast of the Fishes is a recipe earned then learned from the fishing trainer in Val’Sharah. It requires Good Friend, the rep step before Best Friend and costs a mere 50 rep tokens fished up on the pond.
I’ve been working on the trainers and yesterday I was in Val’Sharah. To do the full rep takes about two and a half hours, depending on your patience. It is best to join a raid team and know that you’ll be crowded!
As I was grinding the rep and fish, fish, fishing it became clear that one must have an intention when spending this kind of time. The obvious choice came down to one thing:
To troll my raid team.
I am no actor but with a steady voice, I announced, “feast is down”.
It was funny to hear the exclamations because most did not realize that it was from the feast. One of our raiders began hopping up the ramp (we were on the Engine fight) to try to make it to water to swim.
Which raised the question: would Feign Death give you a belly-up dead fish?
So, after the raid many of us went to the water by Violet Hold and swam about. Yes, the belly-up animation is there! You can use your spells (and heal in fish form) but the best had to be Feign Death.
One of our more brave members flopped up the ramp and all the way over to the Dalaran Fountain and, yes, you can swim in the fountain.
The 200% swim speed is really fast!
