Soo... First off the event was fine. Simple and fun. I soulstone macing and grab fishing on my mage. I fish. Event Water Ele comes... I kill it. EM appears and tells me to loot it, cause I figured its just an ele and dont open the corpse. I find a cool deep blue fishing rod that says Atlantic Fishing Event.... My first event item. I fish with it for 40 minutes and pull up a serpant. The rod goes to my pack and vanishes when I cast ebolt. My sigil rod is there. The event rod is gone. Gone. GONE I TELL YOU. I did all the stuff to check for it. I actually start laughing because I got mad for a second. The first that enters my mind is the kidnapped victim that just surfaced after 18 years of being abused. Sort of put things in perspective. Then I look down and see 148 stone fish. I figure I might win. Well I got beat with 158 stone fish from Tom Davis. Congrats. I lost my EM fishing rod. But I did have fun. I wonder if there is fishing rod bug. I did get 2 pearls in 2 hours of fishing though.
