I have all of the pieces of heirloom that can be obtained for a Mage I'm going to level except for the
Dread Pirate Ring which is linked here: http://www.wowhead.com/item=50255
I don't know of any other heirloom rings available and this one has some nice bonuses. I hear it's quite the pain to get and I'm having difficulty finding good advice for having the best odds of getting it in the shortest amount of time.
Would someone with experience getting this item be able to give some advice? Am I overlooking other heirloom rings that are available so I can avoid doing this one?
I have never fished before. Does my fishing skill need to be at a certain level? Do I need to buy a pole from somewhere prior to?
