Gold Making Strategy #4 – Fishing Gold Tips

Many people think making lots of gold in World of Warcraft comes in 2 varieties…

  1. Spending countless hours killing the same group of mobs again and again
  2. Using gimmicks to somehow turn a switch for 300g / hour to the “on” position

This just couldn’t be further from the truth. I can’t tell you the number of people I’ve personally known who fall into that second category. Fortunately, there are solutions, and this week’s gold tip exposes one of those. For those of you who didn’t pick up from the title, we’re talking about fishing this week.

Fishing is just one of those professions that I think a lot of people really miss the boat on…queue the drums, lol, but really you can make a lot of gold with fishing in a very reasonable amount of gold. Check out the short video below to see how I’m making 195-200g an hour by just using standard fishing practices in combination with sound economic principles…and how you can use these same techniques to start making a lot of gold every day with fishing!

  1. hehe good stuff zuggy.. Fishing is boring but I do it on my Hunter sometimes to relax honestly. It can be relaxing que up some musiK grab a mountain dew and let cast that pole baby. Also make sure auto loot is on. no need to have to click more than once to gather those fishies!! 8)

  2. It is pretty relaxing…most of the time I’ll go cast a few while I’m surfing or watching TV or something else that doesn’t require 100% of my attention.

  3. One other thing, I found someone that wanted dampscale basilisk eyes. I was pretty sure they were a rep repeat turn in but as it turns out they are the only way to switch from Aldor to Scryer I believe. Anyways.. grinding them on my hunter for about an hour. I got 64 basilisk meat, 7 heavy knothide leather, and 40 basilisk eyes. Sold the eyes for 30g, meat should go for about 70g, the leather maybe 10-15gold. Also the vendor junk was about 14 gold and I got 2 green items. So that was maybe 140-150g.Not too bad. Also one other thing. I did hit 1711 for my 2’s rogue/priest team. So Faith has her helm now. ^.^ We went 3-7 dropped to 1611. Then I took those matches and really tried to figure out why we lost. I did figure it out. It was positioning. I was leaving myself too open to dots by locks and shots by hunters and mana drains. So I stopped being so offensive and let me rogue due most of the dmg and LOS’d like a fool. We played later that night with my new tactics and we went 8-1. Hello 1711 rating!!

  4. Thanks for adding the tip on basilisk farming, Faith. I recall farming those myself earlier in TBC when they were a little more expensive, but even today they aren’t bad. And grats on your recent arena successes!

  5. hey zuggy,would u say that the gold guide u suggest is worth the money for it? cuz ive bought one before and it was so shitty i was pissed/=

  6. @Donovan – Well, as the guide is written by me and based on my own strategies…then yes, I’d say I would have to suggest it. =)

    But really, my guide is a no gimmicks type of guide. I know what it’s like to be poor in WoW and I know what it’s like to get ripped off with other guides out there. I think you’ll be very satisfied with my guide. If you’d like to discuss more specifics feel free to drop me an email via my contact form.

  7. like the vid just wanted to add that a great place to fish is wintergrasp you’ll normally get glacial salmon which if you can cook too can get up to sometimes 7g per item or 140 a stack. , been playing wow for a few years now and have found a couple of other amazing ways to roll in the cash too hehe

  8. @Owen – You’re right, wintergrasp is excellent now.
