Latest: Officially, dynamite fishing no longer works. Originally: Dwarves (and others) can fish with dynamite! Almost. Use Ez-Thro Dynamite (or II) on a pool (school). The dynamite will cause the pool to explode and disappear. It will be replaced by one or more objects in the water: Dead Fish, Crate, Bottle. These objects remain for a few minutes. Most people will not be able to open these objects. Blizzard have now confirmed (to me) that dynamite is intended to be used on pools, but the looting is bugged. The plot thickens.
Enaka reports that if a level 18 blows up the pool themselves, anyone can loot the objects. If a higher-level throws the dynamite, looting is only possible by others between (about) level 13 and 19. Loot is reported to be similar to the Outland Daily Fishing Quests' Bag of Fishing Treasures, but there are also other items, including drinks and raw fish. The method seems to work with all pools. Only Ez-Thro Dynamites have been confirmed to work. The Goblin Fishing Pole does not work. Fishing skill is not required. Thanks to schmeg and mikaial20 for letting us know.
The looting process is a bug, but I'm told exploding pools were intended. Such a Goblin approach to fishing might hint at the Cataclysm. Time will tell! Further discussion.
1. Use Ez-Thro Dynamite over a pool
2. Pool explodes and new objects appear in the water
3. Objects may be opened, depending on your level
