WoW Classic Fishing Guide

WoW Classic fishing can be a very profitable pastime in the game if you know the right places to fish. 

Fishing without a doubt plays an important part of many games. For some, it’s a pastime that can break up any monotony in a game that you are playing. For others, such as WoW Classic, it can be a very profitable activity indeed. If you are looking to get your hands on some extra WoW Classic gold, then you are probably wondering how to get the most out of fishing. 

How to Start Fishing in WoW Classic

You will need the fishing skill itself if you are going to begin fishing in World of Warcraft Classic. You can do so by learning apprentice fishing from any of the capital cities that have a fishing trainer in them. After learning the skill, you will need to get yourself one of the vital WoW Classic items, the fishing pole. Once you have done so, find the nearest body of water, and you can get started.

WoW Classic Levelling up

To level up in World of Warcraft Classic where fishing is concerned, you need to find the right zones to fish in. You start off at level 1, and as you reach different levels, new zones will become available for you to fish at. You will be required to move onto new areas to keep raising your fishing level, so keep this in mind going forward. 

Best Fishing Equipment

If you want to become a prominent fisher, then you are going to need the best poles and lures. If fish keep getting away from you, or you’re not getting any bites, then you should consider investing in a strong pole that you can purchase from a fishing merchant. Even more so, you could head to the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza to try and get the Arcanite fishing pole. 

The strongest lure you can buy, which is also the most expensive as to be expected, is the Aquadynamic Fish Attractor. It may cost more than any other lure, but it is certainly worth the investment if you want to get the most out of fishing. 

Best Places to Fish in Classic WoW

To start off with, your best bet for fishing is in the fishing ponds of the capital cities. These are good places to visit once you have reached around level 25, so stary in the starter areas until you reach this point. In these cities, you will find Raw Longjaw Mud Snapper, Raw Bristle Whisker Catfish and Raw Brilliant Smallfish. The only city that isn’t recommended as much is Undercity, as the drop rate for fish is lower there. 

When you reach later levels, Dustwallow Marsh has some great locations for you to fish at. There you will find both inland and coastal areas to get your catch, which ranges from Raw Mithril Head Trout, Raw Rockscale Cod, and even the chance to get Raw Spotted Yellowtail, Firefin Snapper and Oily Blackmouth if you go coastal. 

For high-level fish, then Azshara is a great spot to visit. Here you will find higher spawn rates and more variety of fish to catch. You will need to have at the very least level 300 fishing, and some good equipment to succeed here. You can stand to catch Darkclaw Lobster, Raw Summer Bass, Stonescale Eel, Large Raw Mightfish, and even Winter Squid on seasonal occasions. 

That is everything you need to know about fishing to earn yourself some WoW Classic gold. The key is to make sure that you have decent enough equipment to make the most out of your activity and to have an idea of where the best places are for you to sling your hook.
