Just started fishing and cooking and wondering what they have to offer? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. These days with the dailies and food buffs, there are quite a few high-level characters putting away their weapons and picking up a fishing pole or a chef’s hat for the first time. Instead of just grinding the levels away fishing for and cooking food that wouldn’t make a dent in your health if you tried, try some of these handy dailies! You have the opportunity to find some very useful fish while earning some decent gold, so what are you waiting for?
You’ve gotten to Dalaran and spent some time fishing in the fountain. Your bag is full of the best buff food for your class and you have fish feasts for days. Still wanting more fishing fun? Good. Let’s get fishing out in Northrend!
Marcia Chase was underrated at the beginning of Wrath of the Lich King, mostly spending time selling bright baubles to eager fishers hoping to catch coins or sewer rats. She’s been given a new, more exciting task, though! She now offers adventurers fishing daily quests. This guide will help you understand what you need to do to get the Chasing Marcia achievement for ten shiny achievement points!
Blood is Thicker
Marcia Chase in Dalaran City wants you to bring her 5 Bloodtooth Frenzies. Seems simple enough, right? There’s a catch. Do you remember questing in Borean Tundra and having to steer clear of the D.E.H.T.A. encampment after killing defenceless animals? This time, you want the Animal Blood debuff. Head over to the nearest pool of water, but make sure it’s deep enough to clear yourself of the debuff. Fish in the pool of blood you’ve created, and you should have your Bloodtooth Frenzies within two to three casts. Head back to Marcia for your reward.
Marcia Chase in Dalaran City wants you to bring her 10 Terrorfish. “The best fishing is often the most dangerous.” Depending on your server and what time you’re working on this quest, this may very well be true. This quest requires that you venture into Wintergrasp and do some fishing in the waters there. If you’re on a busier server, there’s a good chance you’ll have a few run-ins with the opposing faction, so be prepared. Thankfully, it seems the fish are caught fairly quickly, so you can run to the nearest flight path (or the teleporter if you happen to have won the last battle) and get out of there before you’re in too much danger. Take them back to Marcia (no doubt wondering why she couldn’t get them herself) and hope the reward is as great as the risk.
Jewel of the Sewers
Marcia Chase in Dalaran City wants you to bring her a piece of Corroded Jewelry. This quest text is a bit misleading, as it tells you that “the trick is to let your hook drag the bottom”, leading you to think that you should go near the arena masters in the sewers. Wrong! Head over by the inn and fish off the dock there. This one tends to take a few extra casts compared to the others, but don’t let that get to you. You’re in the right spot! Take it back to Marcia. Another quest down toward the achievement!
Olisarra the Kind in Dalaran City wants you to return the Severed Arm to her. Time to brave the Frozen SeaFrozen Sea” should work. Another plus is that you don’t have to fish from monsterbelly pools, just open sea. Dress warm and watch out for fatigue! and get some fishing done amongst the icebergs. It seems this fish can be caught anywhere that Deep Sea Monsterbellies can be caught, so basically anywhere that your location is listed as “
Marcia Chase in Dalaran City wants you to discover the mystery of the Phantom Ghostfish. This fish is fished up in Sholazar Basin, right near the River’s Heart flight path. It’s a good reason to go out and do your Oracles/Frenzyheart dailies if you’ve unlocked those. Fish in the lake at River’s Heart until you come up with a Ghostfish. Make sure you eat the fish, as it will despawn if you wait too long. You’ll discover the “mystery” of the ghost fish – invisibility, apparently. Something to note here: there have been reports of being able to catch this fish in other parts of Sholazar. This hasn’t been confirmed, but if you’re feeling brave or bored, have at it!
Now that you’ve done some fishing and made some cash, let’s explore the other side of the food chain – cooking. The cooking dailies start in your faction’s inn in Dalaran, so Alliance characters should visit Katherine Lee in A Hero’s Welcome, and Horde characters should visit Awilo Lon’gomba in The Filthy Animal. Unfortunately, there are no cooking dailies in Dalaran that include fish, so doing double-duty on the dailies is a no-go, but it’s easy to get the ingredients for the cooking dailies, so don’t fret about it.
