Misty Reed Mahi Mahi - Directly East from Stonard. Just avoid the Murlocs.

In fact, Misty Reed Mahi Mahi can be cought everywhere on the very eastern coast of Swamp of Sorrows. Text above IMO gives wrong information that the fish should be cought somewhere right outside Stonard.

I agree -- just a "anywhere on the eastern coast of Swamp of Sorrows" would be more accurate. Still, the guide does point out that as long as your minimap indicates the correct spot, you're okay. My big problem with this section is that it implies that it might take anywhere from 5-25 casts to get these fish. I got all four on my first cast. I don't know if it's changed in a more recent patch or if I'm just wildly lucky, but those cast estimates might intimidate folks. Then again, it's not like they have the option of passing the quest up if they want to level their fishing. Maybe it will just serve as a pleasant surprise for them, the way it did for me. --Avemorielle (talk) 01:59, 25 December 2008 (UTC)


Isn't this supposed to be a cooking powerleveling guide? As it says quite clearly, in this very article even, that you level up your fishing no matter where you fish. So a fishing powerlevel guide would actually tell you: 'Go to the nearest water. Fish. Hints: fish in a capital city to get rested XP.' :D

This is a fishing AND cooking guide. Your cooking skill wouldn't make it very far trying to cook the low level fish you find in the cities.Slacker85 07:41, 22 July 2007 (UTC)
Actually, I agree. The most important information is that you level up your fishing no matter where you fish. This is a powerleveling guide for FISHING. If it's going to have an emphasis on cooking, that needs to be added to the article title. Unfortunately I don't know how to do that. Gnorbert 17:02, 7 November 2007 (UTC)Gnorbert
I just figured it out :D Page moved and link from fishing proffession page changed to reflect this.

Guide redundancy

Seeing that 225-300 seems to be the same for both Horde and Alliance, would it be worth it to condense the guide at that point so we don't have to repeat everything twice?--slxception (me/speak) 09:26, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Never mind, It still has a difference even past 225. But maybe it could be written so that Alliance and Horde intertwined in one, instead of 2 separate sections. --slxception (me/speak) 09:52, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Fishing bug?

There is apparently a bug with this quest, if go away from Nat before getting your fishing level to 226,
the quest can bug and you'll be stuck on 225 for good.

I haven't noticed this one as of 2.3. I finished the quest, and then went to Steamwhedle Port, and managed to get fishing to 226 with no problems. Anyone else can confirm/deny? --slxception (me/speak) 10:01, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

I wish I could confirm/deny, but I didn't take my chances. However... Personally, I don't even see how such a glitch is possible. Why would one's proximity to Nat Pagle after finishing the quest cause his or her skill advancement to lock up? One would assume the real bug these players were reporting stemmed from some issue in which passing the quest didn't allow the player's skill to increase, though the limit was removed. I'd say that bit should be taken out. --Avemorielle (talk) 02:02, 25 December 2008 (UTC)
I've gotten plenty of characters their artisan secondary skills lately and have yet to encounter this bug, so I think it's safe to assume that this was stealth patched at some point. The bit about the bug has been floating around the interwebs a long time, and I'm sure no one has actually verified that it's still true. Chairman Kaga (talk) 05:34, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Post-3.1.0 guide

I've written up and added a post-3.1.0 guide with emphasis on cooking. -- Gordon Ecker (talk) 07:59, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
