Olo, I have a feeling Fishing is going to get a helluva lot better. Why change it more than the other gathering classes if not to make it flat out more entertaining and/or worthwhile?
How is it going to be better if they take all the complexities out of it? Even XI has different baits and tackle. I don't enjoy fishing in WoW and other mmos where you just click the water and get a fish.
As for rods breaking... oh goodie, it will be boring AND frustrating. Sweet.

I am not sure I understand what you are talking about? What are they taking away from fishing? Spearfishing? And even that is getting replaced...
