Underlight Angler

One of the things I love to do in World of Warcraft is “Fishing”. So, when they told me there would be a fishing artifact for Legion, I was absolutely thrilled. The only thing that worried me a little bit were the rumours about how hard it was to get it and that it required an insane amount of fishing. None of that was true!

Already while leveling, I was quite curious to see that famous floating island northwest of Dalaran and our new fishing hero named Conjurer Margos. I directly fished up a fair amount of Drowned Mana on the island to buy “Arcane Lure” from Margos and used that everytime I went fishing.

With the “Arcane Lure” active, you can catch rare bait that grants you a buff in order to catch the rare fish which are needed for the achievement “Bigger Fish to Fry”. What normally should have been a so called long and painful process, was actually a pretty fast and fun way to complete this achievement. Most of the rare baits just give a two minute buff, but some were pretty special and added a funny note to the usual fishing experience.

Once you’ve reached level 110 and completed the “Bigger Fish to Fry” achievement, you can fish up a Luminous Pearl. This pearl can only be caught in pools and will start the quest chain to obtain the fishing artifact. Follow its instructions and head over to Khadgar (Dalaran), he’ll give you the quest “The Dalaran Fountain”, which sends you to Marcia Chase. Once you turn this in, a pearl will appear in the fountain.

Normally, Nat Pagle should appear and offer you the “Fish Frenzy” quest. Note that he might not show up straight (with me he didn’t), after a quick relog and waiting for a minute, he’ll finally appear near the fountain. Accept the quest he gives, it’ll bring you into a three step scenario located on an island infested with murlocs. This scenario is pretty short, but real fun.

I won’t spoil anything, not to ruin the experience. Once you’re done with the scenario, you’ll be sent back to Marcia Chase and she’ll award you with the Underlight Angler!

Now, the real fishing in Legion can begin! You can upgrade the artifact by catching the same rare fish as for “Bigger Fish to Fry”. These rare fish will stop giving fishing xp from now on and will give artifact power instead. Also, don’t do like me and head out to your class order hall for upgrading this epic fishing pole! The artefact forge is the pearl at the Dalaran fountain. There, you can upgrade your pole.

Fishing certainly became more interesting in this expansion. I haven’t started upgrading my “Underlight Angler” yet. I wonder how long it will take.

Meanwhile, happy fishing!

    Oh, thank you for the tour and tips, I actually just finished the Bigger Fish achievement and wasnt sure what happens next. 🙂 And thanks for keeping it spoiler free!

    I wish one could transmog over that fishing pole though… ._.

    What do you use fishing for after getting the artifact, anything in particular, something different in Legion, or? 🙂

    I’m not really sure yet which lures are the best. I’m currently still using my left over arcane lures since we still need to fish up the special ones for leveling the artefact. I haven’t really gone that far yet though, but as soon as I’ve unlocked one of the special artefact traits, I’ll write a new post about my new discoveries 🙂

    Ohh, right, ok, that makes sense, I see.

    Looking forward to a post about it in the future then 🙂

    Ah, its on my To Do List /dusts it off… 😉

    Haha, yeah, added it on my To-Do list as well ^^ I have a lot of fun things on that list though, so I don’t really know where to begin… but… that also means that I have a lot of nice things to look forward to 😀

    You are so right about that, I should rename the entire list to something better than To-Do.

    T.T.L.F.T.A? Things To Look Forward To Accomplish! There 😀
