will get you this toy as of 8.1. You can buy it from
(Horde), close to the Islands Expedition hubs. Might take some work, but it being a toy and not requiring rep may make it more tempting than
I suppose that'll give folks a reason to do Islands again, if they weren't interested before.
There are further cosmetics, pets, toys reputation items and mounts too:
gets you an item for 250 rep upon hand-in.
3 Sailor Hats
, each for 100
. Cosmetic, so usable for each armor type for transmog.
2 Battle Pets
2 more Toys
for various amounts:
While this looks really cool, kinda sad to see all the effort i put into the fishing raft (as someone who missed MoP) was in vain since everybody will now have one :). luckily got "Salty" today so competition isnt an issue ! ... as long as they dont replace my underlight angler.
If it's a reskinned version of the engineering skimmer then good luck trying to get it working. Dang thing bugs out and then you have to wait for the cooldown to try again.
No cooldown but occasionally takes a second or two for the animation to kick in. Speed is a slow (same speed as the Anglers Raft), and is much slower than the Water Strider mount.
Jumping makes you do a little water splash around you and creates steam trails behind you.
Seems like a slightly less crap version of
. Yay for even more useless engineering items...
A fun observation this actually uses the surfboard model that has been in game since Wrath of the Lich king, which can be found in the oracle's camps in sholazar basin.
Toy from island expeditions, this thing is legit.
-Gives you a 10 min buff to surf on water, works in any druid form, no cd, buff doesnt go away if you go on land and back in water.
-Buff only falls off if you take damage.
-Can cast anything without buff falling off, and jumping gives you 150% movement speed.
It's not gnarly at all! It's way slower than
, which can reach about 260% speed (even more if you have speed modifiers: tertiary MS, speed talents...), while this piece of driftwood can only go up to 150%) ! Would recommend buying it only if you want that extra one toy / are fully decked out on Doubloon Items
Gnarlwood Waveboard and Anglers Fishing Raft give the same exact buff
- "Jumping while rafting will paddle the raft, allowing you to move up to 130% faster." and
- "Jumping while surfing causes you to move up to 130% faster."
The Gnarlwood Waveboard does not go any faster by spamming the jump/space bar.
Summited as a bug multiple times.
I mean this, unlike the raft, doesn't need revered with the anglers and a high fishing skill, so that's something. Good for alts.
