Many players don’t know that Fishing can be an excellent way to make money in Vanilla World of Warcraft. In fact, fishing might be the best way to make money at low levels. You can start making crazy amounts of WOW Gold Classic as low as level 20. Here are a few ways that fishing can make you a ton of gold in WoW Classic:

Types of Fishing Locations

There are two types of fishing locations. Pay attention to which kind of fish it is so you aren't fishing in the wrong spot.

Inland fish and pools are found in lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams

Coastal fish and pools are only found along sea coasts

One fish, Oily Blackmouth, has one set of pools that are Mixed, meaning that it is found in both Coastal and Inland waters.

Wreckage pools

These look similar to schools of fish, but with boxes and debris floating around inside them. When you fish in them, you can pull up trunks that will contain useful items. Trunks can contain green-quality gear, recipes, potions, bolts of cloth, leather, bags, and so on. The most lucrative trunks are Mithril Bound Trunks, which can contain level 40-50 greens, Runecloth bolts, and more. There are four different types of trunks you can catch and they follow the overall fishing difficulty of the zones.

Tightly Sealed Trunk: The Barrens, Darkshore, Loch Modan, Silverpine Forest, and Westfall (Minimum skill 1, no “get aways” skill 75)

Watertight Trunk: Ashenvale, Hillsbrad Foothills, Stonetalon Mountains, and Wetlands (Minimum skill 55, no “get aways” skill 150)

Iron Bound Trunk: Alterac Mountains, Arathi Highlands, Desolace, Dustwallow Marsh, and Stranglethorn Vale (north of Grom’Gol only) (Minimum skill 130, no “get aways” skill 225)

Mithril Bound Trunk: Azshara, Feralas, Stranglethorn Vale (south of Grom’Gol only), and Tanaris (Minimum skill 205, no “get aways” skill 300)

Farming Deviate Fish

Deviate Fish are used as a material by Cooks, who make it into Savory Deviate Delight, or by Alchemists to create Elixir of Giant Growth. While neither of these items grant any benefits in combat, you would be surprised how much gold you can make by selling these. Fishing can be great to make gold.

Fishing for buff food

Many of the high-end foods that Cooks can create require fish. Of course, it would be a lot more lucrative if you had Fishing and Cooking. You can make some decent gold just by fishing these high end fish and selling them:

Winter Squid

Raw Nightfin Snapper

Sunscale Salmon

Fish for Oils

Some fish are also needed by Alchemists to create oils like the Stonescale Oil. Alchemists need these oils for the creation of Flasks and Potions, such as the Free Action Potion. Apart from the Stonescale Eels, the following fish can be farmed at lower levels, too. It’s a good way earn gold for your first mount.

Stonescale Eel

Firefin Snapper

Oily Blackmouth

Elemental Water

In Azshara, deep into the bay, you can find patches of Elemental Water. Fishing from these pools will get you a couple different water reagents — Elemental Water, Essence of Water, or Globe of Water. These each have their uses in crafting gear and enchants, but Elemental Water is in particular demand for its part in creating Robe of Power, which is integral for many casters. The pools are far from land, at least a several minute swim out there. And because they’re so far out, you need to be a Shaman — or friends with a Shaman — and have Water Walking in order to fish from them.

Hopefully this guide helps you to make some of that sweet gold. If you need help getting your Fishing up to speed to catch the more valuable mats, If you want to save yourself the need to save money and give an impetus to the development of your Character, you can Buy WOW Classic Gold from
