There are a handful of Fishing Daily Quests in WotLK, all available from the same NPC in Dalaran. You will only be offered a single daily each day, chosen at random from a total of five different quests. In this guide, we’ll help you find the NPC that gives out WotLK’s angling dailies and provide a walkthrough for each quest! We’ll also briefly discuss and list the items that can be found in the Bag of Fishing Treasures you get as a reward for the dailies.

Completing all five of the WotLK Fishing Daily Quests will earn you the Chasing Marcia achievement. These dailies are also part of the requirement for the Fishing daily quests completed achievement.

Unlocking the Fishing Dailies

In order to unlock the Fishing dailies, your character must be level 70 and have the Fishing Skill — and that’s it! There don’t seem to be any other requirements. Marcia Chase in Dalaran (Northrend) is the NPC that offers the fishing dailies. She is found at the fountain south of Runeweaver Square (53, 65).

Walkthroughs – Fishing Daily Quests

Marcia Chase will offer one of the following quests each day — click a quest to see a detailed walkthrough.

Make sure you aren’t in a raid group, or you won’t be able to find the fish for the quests!

Once you accept this daily quest, head to Borean Tundra — Before you can begin fishing, you’ll need to get yourself covered in beast blood. Killing any “beast” type creature will accomplish this, and you’ll know you’ve succeeded instantly, as your character gets very bloody. Then head to one of the many fishable areas of Borean Tundra — the lake in the center of the zone is a good choice, as it’s close to beasts you can kill, but anywhere you can fish will work. While covered in blood, step into the water, and you’ll create a pool of blood.

Once you’ve got a pool of blood, and it’s somewhere you can cast your line, you’re all set! Fish until you’ve collected the five Bloodtooth Frenzy you need. If you’re having a hard time getting your casts close enough to the pool of blood, you can create another pool of blood by killing another beast and jumping in near your first pool.

This is a very straightforward quest — you simply need to head to Wintergrasp and fish in any of the waters there until you catch 10 Terrorfish. Since this is a PvP zone, it can sometimes be tough to fish in peace; fortunately, there is a spot in the south of the zone where you can stand in Dragonblight and fish the waters of Wintergrasp! Head to (47.5, 83.2) (or use the map below) and then walk south until your zone changes to Dragonblight (your coords will change to (12.7, 40.4)).

From here, you can cast your line into the water to the north, and fish without worrying about being ganked. Unfortunately, there is an elemental that will aggro at this spot, so you’ll have to fight it off a few times as you work on catching the Terrorfish.

You don’t have to go very far to start fishing for this quest, which is nice. However, it can take quite a few casts to fish up what you need — this is somewhat made up for by the extra gold this quest grants relative to the other dailies. If your Fishing isn’t very high-level yet, it can be worth your while to pick up and drink a few Underbelly Elixir, which can be found all over the Underbelly. One of the possible buffs is “Hungry Tuskarr”, which gives you +50 Fishing Skill — this will make it easier to get the item you’re looking for.

After accepting the quest, head around the corner to the Violet Hold and fish in the water there — this is the only place you can fish to complete this quest. You aren’t actually going to fish up the Severed Arm; instead, once you find fish up a Bloated Slippery Eel, you can right-click it to open the eel and find the Severed Arm inside. Once you’ve got the arm, you can go turn this one in!

This daily can take a very long time depending on your luck and rng, but at least you don’t have to go far to start fishing — you must fish in the Underbelly to complete this quest. Head into the sewers via the western entrance at (35,45) and make your way downwards. Once you’re in the Underbelly, you’ll see the Cantrips & Crows inn on your right — head past the entrance, onto the dock, and fish in the deep water here until you find the Jewelery.

If your Fishing isn’t very high-level yet, it can be worth your while to pick up and drink a few Underbelly Elixir, which can be found all over the Underbelly. One of the possible buffs is “Hungry Tuskarr”, which gives you +50 Fishing Skill — this will make it easier to get the item you’re looking for.

Some players have reported that fishing from the boat with Sebastian Bower will increase your chances of finding the jewelry, but we haven’t been unable to confirm that. What does seem consistent is that fishing in water that isn’t the deep water to the southeast of the inn doesn’t yield good results.

To catch the Phantom Ghostfish, you’ll need to get to The River’s Heart in the center of Sholazar Basin. The fastest way to get there is to go find Archmage Pentarus in Krasus’ Landing (in the eastern part of Dalaran), and accept Where in the World? Once you’ve accepted the quest, speak with Archmage and tell him you’re ready to go to Sholazar — he’ll pop you in a flying machine and you’ll be teleported to Sholazar Basin. Abandon the quest once you’re in Sholazar and you can repeat this trick each time you do this daily!

If you’ve already completed the aforementioned quest, the other option is seeing if the portal to Wintergrasp is available for your faction, either in the Silver Enclave or the Sunreaver’s Sanctuary.

Once the flying machine lands in Sholazar, you can head to the nearby water and find a Nettlefish Pool, or you can continue east to the River’s Heart and fish in the lake there — according to the quest description, this fish can only be found at the River’s Heart, but players have reported success fishing for it throughout Sholazar Basin. However, the River’s Heart is so close, it’s probably better to be safe and only start fishing once the area above your minimap reads “The River’s Heart”. Once you catch a Phantom Goldfish, eat it immediately — you only have 1 minute after catching it to eat it (which is the requirement for completing the quest).

While fishing in Dalaran, you may end up with a Waterlogged Recipe if your Cooking skill is high enough — if you’re working on collecting Dalaran Cooking Awards, this is a quest worth doing. Otherwise, you can put the item on the Auction House and make far more than you’d make turning it in.

Bag of Fishing Treasures – Fishing Daily Quest Rewards

In addition to the 250 Kirin Tor reputation, you’ll always receive a Bag of Fishing Terasures when you hand in one of the fishing dailies to Marcia. It will contain some gold, plus a few items — the list below contains all of the items that can appear in the bag. There are some excellent items for lucky players to find in their bags of treasure, including the Tiny Lockbox, a number of powerful gems, some stylish gear, and a couple of fishing poles.

While some of the junk items are fairly worthless, others have a very high sell value, so make sure you check the sale price of everything before you delete it! Worthy of particular mention is the Porcelain bell, which vendors for 100g. The Glow Worm can also be a nice find since it raises your Fishing skill by 100 for an hour, which can help with some of the tougher Fishing dailies.

Note that if your Bag of Fishing Terasures had a Sealed Vial of Poison in it, you can use it to start the quest quest and then immediately go and turn it in to Alchemist Cinesra, who is found in the northeasternmost section of the Underbelly. As mentioned above, the Waterlogged Recipe is worth using to complete the quest if you’re working on Cooking dailies, otherwise it can be sold on the Auction House.

Rarity is approximate and is based on stats derived from players opening the Bag of Fishing Treasures.
