Leveling Fishing is one of the simplest things to do on World of Warcraft. All you need is any pool of water in the game, and leveling fishing is as simple as having a fishing pole. I suggest you start leveling fishing in any of the capital cities that have bodies of water with a fishing trainer near by.
- To reach 600 skill you will need the Mists of Pandaria expansion.
- Now optional, buying a basic Fishing Pole and upgrading it when available can boost your fishing skill 5 or more points. These are sold by many vendors and fishing suppliers listed below.
- Travel to any location where a fishing trainer is standing next to water. I suggest the Eventide Fountain in Dalaran because you will not only level fishing but will also catch coins good towards several fishing achievements.
- Goto the fishing trainer and learn Apprentice fishing.
- Fishing in open water next to the fishing trainer making sure to stop and learn a new rank from the trainer as you reach specific levels:
- Fishing Apprentice Levels (1-75)
- Fishing Journeyman Levels (76-150)
- Fishing Expert Levels (151-225)
- Fishing Artisan Levels (226-300)
- Fishing Master Levels (301-375)
- Fishing Grand Master Levels (376-450)
- Fishing Illustrious Levels (451-525)
- Fishing Zen Master Levels (526-600)
Suggested Add-Ons: SellJunk sells all junk to the vendors.
El say’s it best: Many of your catches will be junk items, especially in higher-level zones. But that does not matter, because every catch contributes to improving your skill. And since you are fishing next to a trainer, you won’t waste time moving.
