It will take hours. But, if you are only interested in leveling your fishing skill only; then do not fish in high level fish area / places. If you are Horde: fish inside Ogrimar City.If you are Alliance: fish inside Ironforge City.You get skill points by the number of successful fishing casts you do. -(At level 70 have to get ~10 fishes for 1 skill point.)- So fishing in the lower level areas (where you will catch a fish every time you cast) will be much quicker skill up points than fishing anywhere you don't get a fish each time you cast.Down side to only fishing in lower areas (such as the cities) is you don't get any cook able fish that will give you a cooking skill point. *Though, after maxing out your fishing skill -with the right equipment- it wont make a big difference where you go to fish for 'fish' afterward. Happy fishing.
For shame Miyari http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34832 you missed what could be the anglers best friend in those long hours, either RL or not, heh. BTW this cooking recipe is a reward from Old Man Barlo's dailies
I didn't know about the Giant Sewer Rat pet. Now I have to go get it.Also, excellent guide!
when I reached 150 on my fishing I could no longer get training or level any further, any clues would be accepted
@mackbeak you are missing the fishing book. Go to Booty Bay or get it from the AH if you don't want to go there, but you'll pay considerably more.Edit: Forgot to say, great guide!
3 hours for leveling fishing from 375 to 450 seems a bit fast. I did it in 4.5 hours and seen a lot of posts of people who did it in 4 - 5 hours. I got the achievement Realm First! Grand Master Angler after I did this, but it was taken away again, because it was bugged.I think it's too bad the Epic fishing pole from the Kalu'ak has only +30 fishing, while the one from the Extravaganza has +35. Ofcourse getting exalted everyone can do with time, but the Extravaganza is harder.I got the title Salty a few days ago and I'd like to post my stats for the achievements I did.- Fish Don't Leave Footprints: Fished in the Floating Wreckage pools and found a chest eventually which contained the skill.- The Old Gnome and the Sea: Easy achievement, not much to say about.- The Scavenger: Some pools are quite rare and hard to find, but if you look up the location it isn't too hard.- Master Angler of Stranglethorn: You need quite a bit of dedication to win this. I've won it 4 times now.- Old Ironjaw: Just fish in IF for a long, long time. Took me 1546 casts to get it. Might be a little tricky for hordes.- Old Crafty: There is a bug related to this achievement. Get the quest Crocolisks in the City and you will catch this fish likely within 10 casts. I used this bug to catch him, since I didn't like being ganked in Orgrimmar the whole time.- The Fishing Diplomat: Easy to complete if you're going for Old Crafty aswell.- The Deadliest Catch: I went to Zul'gurub twice. First time to start the quest, and second time to fish up the boss. Water walking came in handy here.- The Lurker Above: Went in Serpentshrine Cavern with Water Walking pots so the fish couldn't bother me. - One That Didn't Get Away: This is quite a big achievement. You can pretty much catch one of the fish everywhere. I think I was quite on the low end with 990 casts for a 15 Pound Mud Snapper from Crystal Lake, Elwynn Forest.- Old Man Barlowned: Just keep doing daily's for some time untill you've had them all.- Outland Angler: Most pools are pretty easy to find, you just need high enough skill to catch one.- Mr. Pinchy's Magical Crawdad Box: It takes a lot of casts for some people to even get a Mr. Pinchy. When you get one the chance is about 3/5 that you will get the pet. I got really lucky to get 3 Mr. Pinchy's in 115 casts, and found the pet in the 2nd Mr. Pinchy.- Northrend Angler: Takes some trouble to do before lvl 77, as you need to go through high lvl mobs to reach some pools, and you have to visit most of the zones to get them all.- The Coin Master: The job to keep fishing in the Dalaran fountain until you get that last damn coin. Took me 1002 casts to get them all. With a requirement of 525 skill it's hard to use 25 lures without really good gear.- Accomplished Angler: After all this, the title "Salty" was mine :D
There is another way to get the Old Crafty achievement for Alliance players that is alot faster but a little more risky. Someone on my realm (Haomarush) told me to try this and it totally worked. Check the daily fishing quests in Outland, and when the Crocks in the City one comes up go to Orgrimmar at a time when you think it's safe (I went at 4am on a Sunday morning). Fish in the one pool they have and you should start seeing the Crock come up in the first few casts. Every time it shows up don't take it, just close the window and fish again. Repeat this process until Old Crafty shows up. I got Old Crafty in less than 5 casts and it only took about 2 minutes. Give it a try and see if it works for you. Hopefully it still does as I did this right before Wrath came out. Also, if someone else posted this trick earlier I apologize and am not trying to steal your thunder, I'm honestly just too lazy to read all the previous posts.
nice guide :D
good stuff =D
in my opinion, Crawdad is cooler :> Goodluck with "hunting" anyway xD
I only need 14k more points to be Exalted with the Kalu'ak and I really, really want the Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole, but my fishing skill is only 170 right now. Where do I need to go first to get my fishing skill up over 170?
