About Frostfire Ridge

Fishing in Frostfire Ridge (Except Garrison)

New or changed in Warlords of Draenor, the next expansion, which is not yet available.

  • 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:

    The size of the fish caught from Garrison waters depend solely on the level of your Fishing Shack, not your skill: Small at level 1, regular at level 2, and Enormous at level 3.
  • 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 size of the fish caught from Garrison waters depend solely on the level of your Fishing Shack: Small at level 1, regular at level 2, and Enormous at level 3. Unlike other parts of Draenor, skill does not alter the catch from Garrison waters.
  • 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. Anglers with low fishing skill may benefit from Garrison fishing, since the size of fish caught with a level 2 or 3 Shack may be larger than the average size their skill would allow them to catch elsewhere in Draenor. The level 3 Shack unlock is account-wide, so a second angler on the same account could theoretically level fishing almost entirely by catching Enormous fish at their Garrison.
