It's been a while since I played this (haven't since about 3 months before WOTLK came out.)
So I decided to DL this from my B.NET account, only thing is I am really out of the loop on things like a solid MF character. I've been toying around with a Necro but the Fishymancer build is pretty boring. Just stand back and let the skeletons do all the work and just lay down curses with CE every now and again.
So I am looking for a different character to play with. Just don't know what.
I don't find fishymancer boring myself, but it is a little more passive than most builds. As kartongen says fishyzon is more active, and almost as gear-independent as fishymancer.
Explosionmancer requires a little bit more in terms of gear for hitting FCR breakpoints and getting a decent rank on bone spear, but it isn't too bad, and bonus points because you can just respec your fishymancer instead of rolling up a new character.
I also really like a trapsin or kick/trap sin for MFing. (basically choosing between fireblast or dragon talon for dealing with light immunes - the pure trapper is less gear dependent)
Well... I had an idea for a different sort of spin on a solo Fishymancer. Been playing around with it and it seems to be working pretty well so far. No real deaths to mention except for a few lag-caused ones.
