About Frostfire Ridge

Fishing in Frostfire Ridge (Except Garrison)

  • Size and Skill:

    Open water and pools can be fished with skill 1, but the higher your effective fishing skill, the more likely you are to catch larger sizes of fish: 700 skill avoids Small catches, 950 avoids regular-sized catches. Regular catches require at least skill 100, Enormous 650. For details see Size and Skill.
  • Notes:

    Frostfire Ridge is the Horde entry zone into Draenor. Although Contested, the zone's activity is dominated by the Horde. The zone's coastline is surrounded by cliffs. Patches of inland water can be found at the Bones of Agurak, Grombolash, and in the Horde Garrison. Most inland fishing is from lava.
  • Commentary:

    For Alliance anglers, the most convenient place to fish Fire Ammonite is at The Bones of Agurak, next to the path between Gorgrond and Frostfire Ridge. Both open water and Fire Ammonite Schools can be fished at The Bones of Agurak.

Fishing in Frostfire Ridge (Frostwall Garrison)

  • Size and Skill:

    Open water and pools can be fished with skill 1, but the higher your effective fishing skill, the more likely you are to catch larger sizes of fish: 700 skill avoids Small catches, 950 avoids regular-sized catches. Regular catches require at least skill 100, Enormous 650. In addition, the maximum possible catch size from Garrison waters is capped by the level of your Fishing Shack: Only Small at level 1, Small and regular at level 2, and potentially all three sizes at level 3. For details see Size and Skill.
  • Notes:

    The Garrison is unlocked as part of the initial Draenor questline. Draenor fish can be caught in Garrison waters after unlocking the Fishing Shack - see Garrison Fishing. You will always catch the fish appropriate to your own Garrison, even if visiting another angler's Garrison. The maximum possible catch size is capped by the level of your Fishing Shack: Only Small at level 1, Small and regular at level 2, and potentially all three sizes at level 3.
  • Commentary:

    The catch rate of Bait from Garrison waters is not high enough to guarantee the same type of prize fish can be caught continually. If you are prepared to catch more than one type of fish, the overall catch rate will be similar to that obtained by fishing in the native zone/waters of each fish. Rare catches, such as gear or Lunkers, are not thought to be possible to catch from Garrison waters, so there is still an advantage to travelling elsewhere.

Burnt Clump

  • Wilken, December 2014

    Still getting this at 1005 skill with bait, its junk, any ideas? bug?

  • el, December 2014

    Burnt Clump is a part of the regular catch table in Frostfire Ridge. Catching it does not indicate your skill is too low. It replaces items of equipment, such as lures and poles (except Tentacled Hat). The narrative is that such items have melted in the lava, becoming Burnt Clumps.
