Navispam - The Real Salty El

What serious fisherperson does not know of El's Angling?  Only the most comprehensive fishing site about World of Warcraft fishing!  Salty El has all the news on the latest aspects of all things fishing, as well as all the info you would ever need on any aspect of fishing, and I am constantly going back to check where those damn carp spawn, even though I SHOULD  know by now.

With 5.2 you will see Salty El at all the fish migrations - a tribute to the amount of work El has put into this game with their fansite.  After El actually visited my blog and I had a squee attack, and thought maybe if El wouldn't mind too much, I could get a pic of the real El!

Though, really, who would believe I got a pic of the real El?  The NPC Salty El looks exactly the same!  It was a good time to be searching as well - Darkmoon Faire was up and El was still without a Darkmoon Fishing cap!  It has a lousy cooldown - 1 hour to summon a shipwrecked debris?? But it's a fish eating your head! :P

I found her - she was at DMF - and I asked if I could take her picture, and she said I could.  I asked her if lots of people do that, and she said some people don't realise that she's actually NOT the NPC - how funny is that!

Took me ages to get to DMF on my level 2 toon.  One of the cool things that I never took advantage of before was the free mount supplied - but boy is that great for getting around as a level 2!  El was down at the jetty but I didn't realise and I ran right past her, even though she waved to me.  Oops!  Way to look like a noob fan, hey Nav...


I had some silly questions to ask El.  I asked her about carp.  She told me that she caught 3 blue carp on beta!  I didn't know that could happen!  I wonder if that can happen on live?  Cymre told me that you can only catch one of each carp (or add one of each to your journal).  I think she told me she caught red first on live.


When I asked El what fishing thing she found easiest, as in achievement (I was here thinking Giant Sewer Rat, Sea Turtle, Fishing Tournament) do you know what she said? 25 fish!

Nat's hat looks so cute on a gnome, I wondered what El would do with that Darkmoon cap (it's so UGLY), and I asked her if she would wear it.  She said she would sometimes. /shudder


Here!  A pic of El doing something other than fishing so you believe that it was a real person! Well, real person as in real player not an NPC... off course, the name colour gives it away, but we said our goodbyes, and I took a screenie of her waving at me.  Gnomes - they can be cute!

  1. As a lover of Fishing I have long been a frequenter of el's site. I love that when you asked her about easiest achievements she said 25fish made me laugh hard enough to hurt.

  4. Yay! How awesome!

    El's Angling keeps me sane (kind of?) when I feel like whatever rare thing I am fishing for doesn't exist or I think I'm doing it wrong.

    1. I think I have that page permanently open, trying to convince myself that THIS POOL DOES GIVE THE CARP!

  5. What a great visit. El's NPC is a great tribute to a person who does a lot of great work.

    The first carp I picked up was the one in the Vale. I found the green and blue were the easiest to fish by far. The only thing I would suggest is having lures, etc. or fishing in pools (even though I fished in open water) which I think made it that much harder when there were pools around.

    1. I have tried fishing there but not much luck so far. But I think I was just lucky with my white one. I wonder where fishing is today...

  6. Nice to see El getting Naviespammed! /cheer

    The fishing guides on El's Extreme Anglin' are just great, but I think the guide for Sunsong Ranch has been my favorite so far. It dispelled all the confusion I felt when first starting with my farm. :)

  7. Woo Hooo!!!!! Gratz on your latest Navispam!!! I'm glad you were able to meet up and get a photo with her. Her little gnome is such a cutie patootie.

    And, to echo what others have stated, I love El's Anglin as well. It is a fabulous fishing site.

    1. I feel lucky too! I mean I checked first time and she was on! It's like catching the sea pony on my first cast or something!

  8. This is one of the best blog posts I've read in awhile :) I love the mini-celebrities that pop up out of the wow community like El, and it's cool to see they're so friendly in-game.

    I love that she's not even in a guild, so you can totally understand why some people think she's an NPC :P

    1. Oh she is guilded! I just put it on hidden so you can't see it (some people like that for privacy). I think it's so cool how Blizz rewards people by putting players in the game :)

  9. That is so awesome! Hanging out with El, wow. I only get to hang out with the Warchief. :p

    I didn't know about that hat. Now I'm going to have to go spend even MORE time fishing! ^.^
