Preparing your Legion Professions – Fishing
Enjoying the Garrison Fishing raids?
Lots of players have been taking advantage of the personal-loot-in-groups change in World of Warcraft Patch 7.0 to band together in a raid group and get fishing together.
With up to 40 players fishing in one garrison, each cavedweller murloc that spawns gives loot to every player in the raid.
We have 40 times the amount of fish being produced on each server/realm.
The murlocs are also giving a whole host of different grey items with fun flavor texts. A select few of these are rare enough or fun enough that they can be sold on the auction house. Some can even be used by level 1 bank alts.
Look out for:
- Ornate Drinking Stein – offhand
- Gold wedding band – finger
- Antique Silver Cufflinks – wrist
- Noble’s Monocle – head
- Battered Jungle Hat – head
- Diamond-Tipped Cane – staff
- String of alligator teeth – neck
- Solid Gold Coin
- Old “Pirate” Map
- Undelivered Love Letter
- Velociraptor Skull
- Fantasy Portrait
- New Age Painting
- Blank Slate
- Porcelain Bell
- Stuffed Shark Head
- Steamy Romance Novel
You can also fish up a Compass toy which price is currently dropping like crazy on the Warcraft AH. When the garrison fishing trend seems to be coming to a close (perhaps on August 9th when Demon Hunters launch?) this would be a good time to start scooping up the very cheapest of these BoE toys on the Auction House.
I picked up over 1,500 primal spirits fishing in garrisons this week!
Nat’s Lucky Coin
Murlocs are also dropping lots of fish flesh, fishing items (like temporary rod and fun hats), and some of Nat’s Lucky Coin.
For players with a level 3 fishing shack in their garrison, Nat Pagle offers to sell items, depending on how much of a friend he considers you. (Personal reputation with NPC.)
What to buy from Nat Pagle
- Nat’s Draenic Fishing Journal, 25 Nat’s Lucky Coin DONT BUY THIS. Fishing is extremely easy in Warcraft Legion and a lot of fun!
- Nat’s Drinking Hat, 25 Nat’s Lucky Coin, Friends. Fishing skill increased by 10, temporary lure for 150 more. BUY THIS
- Draenic Fishing Pole/ Savage Fishing Pole, 25 Nat’s Lucky Coin, Friends. Fishing skill increased by 30, temporary lure for 200 more. BUY THIS
- Land Shark, 50 Nat’s Lucky Coin, Good Friends. BUY THIS AS MANY AS YOU CAN! Land Shark is one of the items in my stockpile list!
- Reins of the Crimson Water Strider, 100 Nat’s Lucky Coin, Best Friends. DONT BUY THIS unless you are a mount collector or you don’t have the Azure Water Strider from Mists of
- Pandaria expansion.
If you’re able to join one of the fishing groups, keep your worm supreme that drops, to help you with +fishing in Legion. That extra +200 fishing will help you find the rare Legion fish faster (hint – fish in the schools, and only in the schools!), and then to gain the Artifact Fishing Pole faster. One of the abilities on the fishing rod gives a little extra Blood of Sargeras, which will help your other professions in Legion.
If you’re not able to join one of the fishing groups, and you don’t have Nat’s Draenor fishing rod, then get hold of the very cheapest of the Worm Supreme on the AH. Or ask your fishing guildies to donate their leftover worms. Don’t spend too much, and just pick off the very cheapest. There should be a lot of cheap fishing items on the Warcraft Auction House right now.
What to do with all the fish
Cook “feast of the waters” and hope for a lil’ leftovers.
Use the feasts when leveling your alts in Legion. No one will ever go hungry again!
Lil Leftovers is a pet you can get when cooking, currently valued at 3,000g or so on the AH, but very likely to rise in price considerably once it becomes almost impossible to collect.

Preparing for Legion Angling
- Get your character up to 700 fishing. Easy to do, and more fun in a group.
- Check you have lures in your bag ready to go.
- “Cook” some Captain Rumsey’s Lager if you have the recipe.
- Check out some of the fishing addons like Fishing Buddy, available through Curse.
- Get the Angler’s Raft if you can. It became a toy in Patch 7.0, but can only be used by characters with the right reputation. While you’re in Krasarang Wilds, Pandaria, don’t forget to multitask!
- Grab a +20 Strong Fishing Rod from fishing vendors if you don’t have a better one.
- Use the next few weeks before Legion launches to check out the Fishing Tournaments for useful fishing prizes (fishing line, hat, boots, ring).
- Search out some fun music to listen to while fishing in Legion. If you usually turn it off, consider the in-game music. Or line up a playlist on spotify/youtube/whatever. I prefer not to watch a movie at the same time because I like to keep my eye on the fishing line. I do recommend some of the radio plays from BBC iplayer – it’s like having a free audio book!
