Fishing Guide for Burning Crusade Classic
Welcome to Wowhead's guide to Burning Crusade Classic
! This guide will cover Fishing in the Outlands zones, including where to find specific fish, zone fishing level requirements, and fishing-related quests.
Since Fishing is a secondary skill, not a primary profession, all players can learn Fishing. This is a particularly strong skill for Hunters, as many Hunter pets will eat fish. It's almost a requirement for
, as about half the Cooking recipes require Fish to make. It can also be a good steady money-maker for farmers, as there are always Hunters and cooks who prefer to buy rather than spend their in-game time with poles and bait.
Information presented here is consistent with the 2.5.1 release of The Burning Crusade. However, some content such as Zul'aman and Sunwell Plateau will be released in later phases, which will affect what vendors, quests, reputations, and content are listed here. The guide will be updated regularly as phases are released.
What is Burning Crusade Classic Fishing?
Fishing in TBC is similar to fishing in Classic: learn the skill, grab your best Fishing Pole, use bait to improve your base skill, and relax as you fish. Like in Classic, your fishing level will determine where you will go to fish, as zones (and even areas within zones) have specific Fishing requirements, some of which exceed the 375 base skill. You will need modifications like a higher-level pole, better bait, and help from alcoholic beverages such as
to make your fishing a success.
Best Races and Classes to Learn Fishing
There are no Fishing racials, and all classes and races can benefit from Fishing.
Hunters should learn to Fish for the steady free food supply for their pets. Classic pet types that eat Fish include Bear, Boar, Carrion Bird, Cat, Crab, Crocolisk, Turtle, and Wind Serpent. Three Burning Crusade Classic pet types, the Dragonhawk, Serpent, and Warpstalker, will also eat Fish.
Differences in Fishing Between Retail and Burning Crusade Classic
Fishing bears some basic similarity between the Retail version of WoW and TBC, but there are some key differences.
In Retail, you can fish anywhere in the Shadowlands for skill. In TBC, each zone has a level range, meaning that you can't fish there at all unless you meet the minimum requirement, and some of the lower level fishing areas effectively "grey out" for gaining higher fishing skill. Minimum skill levels for fishing was removed in Wrath of the Lich King.
In Retail, you can use fish-specific bait to attract specific types of fish. In TBC, no such fish-specific bait exists.
There are many things you can use to change the appearance of your bobber in Retail, including making it large with the vendor-purchased
or toys such as
. Bobber modifications were not introduced until Legion, and thus are not available in TBC.
In Retail, you can learn all levels of Fishing from any Fishing Trainer. In TBC, you can only learn 300-375 fishing from the two trainers in Zangarmarsh.
You need a fishing pole to fish in TBC. In Retail, a physical fishing pole is not required.

Fishing pools are places where you can fish up specific types of fish, wreckage crates, and other items. One of these, the Highland Mixed School, can yield a companion pet,
! Most will also yield assorted other large fish such as
, as well as
The only fish you cannot get from pools is
, although this is such a common fish that dedicated pools aren't necessary.
There is another type of fishing pool found in Nagrand that doesn't yield fish - Pure Water. The primary thing you can fish from these is
, and these appear primarily in the area stretching diagonally across the zone from Throne of the Elements to Sunspring Post.

Outlands fishing skill is required to do these quests, as you will need minimum skill levels to fish in the various locations around Outlands. The only daily you can do with very low fishing skill is
, which requires fishing in Orgrimmar, Stormwind City, or the Forlorn Cavern in Ironforge, which you can do with level 1 fishing.

Fishing Items in Outlands
Classic provided many +skill fishing poles, enchants, lures, and other modifications to Fishing, and all of these will work in TBC. For more information about these, visit the
Classic Fishing Guide
In TBC, there are several +Fishing items you can get.
- gives +20 fishing skill, from the level 64 quest
in Lower City, Shattrath. While this isn't as good as
, the former is Horde only and the latter requires winning the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza. It is as good as the best fishing pole available to all races -- the
from Desolace, and is less RNG than having to open all those fish traps.
- gives +100 to fishing skill, Fishing (100) required. This can be fished up as a by-catch in most zones, and is a reward from the
's fishing dailies.
Other items from
's fishing dailies that give +skill to fishing include
(+5 Fishing and attaches a +75 lure to your pole on use),
(+3 Fishing Skill),

(+10 Fishing when consumed, lasts 3 minutes).

. This will allow fishing nodes to show up on your minimap. Like other tracking skills, you can only track one type of thing at a time. You must have a minimum Fishing skill of 100 to memorize it.
There are several ways to get this item, but the most reliable way is to fish in debris pools. In Azeroth, one of the most reliable sources for the
is fishing from floating wreckage in the streams around Windshear Crag in east-central Stonetalon Mountains. In Outlands, it's from Steam Pump Flotsam in the various lagoons in Zangarmarsh. It's also a rare reward from
's fishing dailies.
Leveling Fishing in Burning Crusade Classic
Leveling Fishing in TBC is pretty much the same as leveling Fishing in Classic. You need to go to a zone where the fishing skill is low enough that you can fish there successfully, but high enough that you will get steady skill points. This means you will be moving from zone to zone as your skill goes up. If you fish as you level, this will provide a natural fishing progression path.

It's worth noting that with max 375 base fishing skill, a +25 pole, and +100 bait, you will never have a fish get away from a cast anywhere in TBC-Classic. Since Alliance only has easy access to a +20 pole, Alliance players need any given +5 gear/line/beer to never have fish escape.
The above also holds true for Classic WoW, where a total of 425 fishing is needed to never fail in any zone (500 in TBC.)
Great guide btw! The "Where to Fish in Burning Crusade Classic" is great with it's minimum fishing skill required per area/lake listed.
If you feel like adding a "minimum to never fail" list, my research shows the values are as follow:
375 - Hellfire Peninsula
400 - Zangamarsh east of Serpent Lake, and The Lagoon
425 - Ghostlands (Zul'Aman) (although I think these are the same Classic fish as other 425 Classic zones like Winterspring and Deadwind.)
450 - Isle of Quel'Danas, Serpent Lake & West in Zangamarsh, Ground level in Terrokkar Forest
475 - Nagrand east of Halaa including Elemental Plateau. Eco-Dome Midrealm in Netherstorm.
490 - Nagrand's Lake Sunspring and Skysong Lake
500 - Terrokar Forest: Slimyr Lake, Blackwind Lake, Lake Ere-Noru & Lake Jorune
I'm not positive until beta however, if interested you may wish to poke around whatever sources you have access to.
Thanks again for all your efforts with these TBC guides btw, they're great! :)
