Welcome to yet another week of Hoarders! This week has been a mighty special one, with Deathwing bursting from his hiding place and all. His awakening has created earthquakes, massive fissures, and of course tidal waves. Thanks to the massive amounts of water recently finding its way onto shore, there has been a drastic increase in the number of fish to be found around beaches of Azeroth. These fish, my dear readers, make for very fine weapons.
You heard me: weapons.
There are multitudes of fish out there just waiting to be hooked, and once you catch these monsters, you may use them to run up to your friend Leggolas and smack him upside the head. It's mighty good fun ; )
Curious as to where you can find these bad boys? Well, let us get to our list than. Shall we?
Dark Herring - Fished up in Northrend and part of the One That Didn't Get Away achievement for the 'Salty' title. Can be used as an actual weapon, seeing as though it is a dagger capable of 109.9 DPS.
Shatterscale Mightfish - A blue (as in item quality, I'm not sure of it's actual color) one-hand fishy weapon. No details yet as to where it's fished from, but I can only assume that it will be from one of the various bodies of water found in the new Cataclysm zones.
Rockhide Strongfish - Another DPS weapon bringing in a whopping 26.7 damage per second. Also part of the One That Didn't Get Away achievement. Can only be fished from the pools of tastyfish which only spawn during the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza.
Steelscale Crushfish - 12.9 DPS and yet another fish required for One That Didn't Get Away. Caught in Ashenvale, Hillsbrad Foothills, and the Wetlands.
Old Crafty - If you're Alliance, good luck trying to catch this guy. He's fished up in the waters of Orgrimmar.
Old Ironjaw - If you're Horde, you may have a bit of trouble going after this one. He's fished up only in Ironforge.
Enormous Barbed Gill Trout - This can be found in various areas in the Outlands. No pools needed to nab this one.
Feralas Ahi - Part of the Nat Pagle, Angler Extreme quest (assuming that it's still there of course). This can be fished up from the Verdantis River of Feralas.
Huge Spotted Feltail - This particular fish can be obtained in various Outland zones, and can also be occasionally found in a Barrel of Fish, an item you receive from the Outland fishing daily.
10 Pound Mud Snapper - Found in Elwynn Forest, Durotar, or Mulgore.
12 Pound Mud Snapper - Only found in Mulgore.
15 Pound Mud Snapper - Part of the achievement On That Didn't Get Away. Seems to be acquired through various low level area ponds.
15 Pound Salmon - Fished up in Scholomance, Alterac Valley, and perhaps what once was Zul'Gurub.
18 Pound Salmon - 'Tis a mystery to me for the moment as to where this one's from.
22 Pound Salmon - Found in Winterspring, Eastern Plaguelands, and possible Deadwind Pass.
25 Pound Salmon - Another mystery!
29 Pound Salmon - Part of the achievement One That Didn't Get Away. Very rare catch in Wintersrping, Plaguelands, and a few other select areas where Salmon are known to spawn.
32 Pound Salmon - It's a mystery, and it's heavy. I'm going to assume that it can be found where the other Salmon play.
19 Pound Catfish - Fished up in Darnassus, Stormwind, Ironforge, The Deadmines, Blackfathom Deeps, Scarlet Monastery, and strangely enough, Arathi Basin.
22 Pound Catfish - Found in the Scarlet Monastery, Wailing Caverns, and apparently Arathi Basin.
26 Pound Catfish - Where you can fish it up from, I'm unsure. I do know that it's edible!
32 Pound Catfish - Another fish for One That Didn't Get Away. There's a long list in the comments in the wowhead link provided telling of all the different areas this one's caught in. I know, I'm being lazy : P
34 Pound Redgill - This one can only be fished up in Maraudon.
37 Pound Redgill - Listed as only dropping in Sunken Temple, it apparently can rear it's head in various other zones as well.
42 Pound Redgill - Un'goro and Moonglade are the only two confirmed areas that this fish can be fished from (say that one five times fast!), but I'm thinking there may be a few more areas as well.
45 Pound Redgill - You have encountered an informational error. No specific data for "45 Pound Redgill." Please try again later. (I assume it can be found wherever other redgill can be found as well.)
49 Pound Redgill - Feralas. That's all I have for you.
52 Pound Redgill - Aha! Dataz. This is yet another fish needed for One That Didn't Get Away. Again, in the comments in the link provided has a nice long list of where this guy can be found, but it seems like he still likes Feralas, Un'goro, and Moonglade (along with a slew of others) just like his other not-so-light friends.
70 Pound Mightfish - Bay of Storms in Azshara. Bring a wagon...and maybe a boat.
85 Pound Mightfish - You may need a friend to help you with this one. No specific data on wowhead, buuuut I'm gonna assume that he's from Bay of Storms as well.
92 Pound Mightfish - Weighing in at roughly the same poundage as a pre-teen human child, we have the 92 Pound Mightfish! Again, no real data, but I'm thinking Bay of Storms. I'm always right when I guess anyways, so just roll with it. /sarcasm
103 Pound Mightfish - The heaviest of the offhand fish! Also on our list for One That Didn't get Away and weighing as much as I do in real life...holy wah. That's pretty darn heavy for a fish. Best bring a team to help you reel in this bugger...Caught in Azshara (Bay of Storms).
Did I mention that many of these fish can be used as weights? Or that you may need a heavy-duty cart to hall them in?
That's all for this weeks folks. Hopefully you enjoyed the content more than the smell! I assure you, it'll start to fade after about a month or so of washing.
