WoD uses an entirely new method to determine what fish is caught, and how anglers can influence the catch. For an introduction to Bait, fish sizes, and filleting in Draenor, read Bait and Fillet. Update: For detailed analysis of the relationship between fishing skill and fish size, read Size and Skill.
Other parts of the Warlords of Draenor section have been updated with the latest fishing discoveries from the alpha test, including Garrisons and training. To hear about discoveries as they happen, follow @elsanglin.

Data-mining (not yet confirmed by anglers) suggests WoD's Garrison Fishing Shack may have 3 specializations. Choice of specialisation is expected to depend what you want from your Fishing Shack - pure angling, supplies, or combat:
- Bait - "Greatly increases the chance that you will find bait while fishing in Garrison waters." Bait should be "useful for catching" Draenor fish.
- Shipment - Possibly grants extra Pack of Fishing Supplies, expected to contain Draenor fish.
- Summon - "Grants you a chance to catch Frostdeep Minnows in Garrison waters. Used to summon a Frostdeep Cavedweller." Presumably a Krakkanon-style mini-boss.
