We're all going to need gold in Wrath of the Lich King once the prepatch is over. Before, we made a gold farming guide for the prepatch, now we share another chill method for making some serious coins that anyone can try for the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King, and that is fishing. 

Why Fishing For Gold In WotLK?

Fishing in northrend locations like Wintergrasp and Dragonblight can net you over 300 gold per hour. The best part is that fishing and Wrath of the Lich King can be done with any professions. So every player can get in on the profit, plus if you combine it with cooking, you can massively scale up your profits to thousands per week. There has never been a better time to fish for profit in Classic WoW. 

Fishing in Wrath is easy, fun and more profitable than in Classic and TBC. There's a huge 3.1 chain, you can fish in any pool and gain skill ups from 1 to 4 50. Once you hit 450, all you have to do is head to the right fishing spots in Northrend and now every mouse click generates free profit out of thin air. Many raiders on the live servers have big gold, so consumables will sell for record prices.

How to Make 300g Per Hour Farming Fishing in WotLK Classic?

All rich fishermen know that you should start with the fishing daily. For a few minutes of your time, you could walk away with a rare storm jewel or a sweet brand crawler crab pet. Just remember to pick up the daily and dalaran from marcia chase. After the daily, we have plenty of options like grizzly hills fools for the glacial salmon or dragon blight for the melee favorite dragonfin angelfish, plus you'll have a chance to get the amazing sea turtle mount which can outswim even druid. 

How to Make 300g Per Hour in Wintergrasp

We recommend to head straight to wintergrass to pump gold up. Wintergrasp has all the fish you need to make the extremely desirable fish feast raid buff food, the only downside that pesky pvp event going on every two hours. Other than that, wintergrasp is extremely overpowered, musselback sculpins, nettlefish and glacial salmons galore, plus you'll also fish up giant dark water clams which can contain northea pearls and siren's tears for extra profit. Even at around 375 fishing, you can push over 200 fish per hour, but you'll be getting a lot of junk as well. But at 450 fishing, you should be pumping almost 250 fish per hour. Profit will vary based on your server and on rng, but you should aim to sell your fish for at least 1.5 gold each netting big profit.

How To Max Fishing in WotLK

To get to that 300 gold per hour, you'll need to max out your fishing really fast. That's because a lower fishing level means you're more likely to get worthless junk each cast. Power leveling your fishing as fast as possible in a location like wintergrasp, even power leveling in a lower zone like the barons is a great idea. Rushing to end game fishing faster will result in more profit than wasting time on lower level fish. It will only take between 8 and 10 hours of power leveling to go from 1 to 450. But if you want to level cooking at the same time, an old-fashioned fishing route is perfectly viable. You'll definitely want the highest plus fishing equipment you can possibly get and the best lures you can apply to your fishing pole. And don't forget cold weather flying to reach locations faster. 

Combine WotLK Cooking With Fishing 

Making 300 gold per hour fishing is just the start. With cooking, we can massively scale up our profits. Fish feasts are a great choice to cook and sell since they're extremely popular with caster DPS and healers. You'll just need to complete easy cooking dailies for northern spices to combine with your fish. But it’s recommended to cook any underpriced fish to flip to raiders. Using trade skill master, you can constantly able to cook and flip profitable food.

So now you know about one of the most consistent and fun gold making methods in Wrath of the Lich King, are you sold on fishing and cooking for gold?
