WoW Classic Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza Guide
STV Fishing Extravaganza Rewards
Master Angler (and winning the tournament) awards a choice of one of 2 prizes. Both are Bind on Pickup:
- Arcanite Fishing Pole – This is the very best fishing pole in the game and is usable at Fishing Level 300. It gives you +35 to fishing, which makes it incredibly valuable for fishing up difficult-to-catch fish in places such as the coast of Azshara.
- Hook of the Master Angler – This trinket turns you into a fish and gives both water breathing and increased speed under water.
There are also three rare fish you can catch and turn in to Fishbot 5000, which yield great fishing-related prizes as well, especially for twinks.
Grab your fishing pole (and your sword)—the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza is about to get underway along the coasts of Stranglethorn Vale! Early on the appointed day, friendly neighborhood goblins will visit Ironforge and Orgrimmar to inform aspiring anglers of the grand tournament and give instructions on how to participate. At the appropriate time, a shout will ring out across Stranglethorn to bait your hooks and cast your lines!
