A friend of mine just fished up Essence of Fire, I've never heard of this. Just wanted to share it. :)
[Fishing] Lava outside BRD, Burning Steppes
Thanks. The lava in the Burning Steppes mostly contains Old Skull and Coal - just like Fire Plume Ridge in Un'Goro Crater. It is possible Essence of Fire is a rare catch [update] just caught it. I suspect this is a recent change. Perhaps other areas are fishable now to? [update] Blackrock Mountain's lava is fishable (same catches). Change may be related to removing fish from the forge in Ironforge.
I noticed Wowhead lists Essence of Fire as fishable in The Obsidian Sanctum - which almost makes sense. Perhaps this means dungeons like Molten Core are now fishable to? Although, I tried the Maw of Neltharion (in Dragonblight) and while the lava there is fishable, it contains regular Dragonblight inland open-water catches. Bonescale Snapper are evidently rather resilient!
Blackrock Depths lava is not fishable (at least the area near the Black Forge), I get the "no fish here" message and can't even cast.
However, Molten Core lava is fishable, and is the same as Burning Steppes:
29 old skulls
1 essence of fire
Just was in the cave on east side of Dreadmaul Rock to try for Bloated Salmon but caught only skulls, coal and essence of fire from the waters inside.
Good find, Moth. The cave has been renamed to "The Skull Warren", and in spite of containing water, the catch is the same as lava.
Just noticed that you didnt have The Great Divide (On the border of North/South Barrens) as a fishable open lava spot.....just fished a few minutes but pretty much the same old skull/coal as everywhere else
I spent a while fishing in the Skull Warrens, and this is what I caught:
74 Old Skull
3 Essence of Fire
2 Raw Whitescale Salmon
1 Raw Redgill
1 Raw Nightfin Snapper
