2. Unlocking the Fishing Shack

In this section, we are going to tell you how to unlock the Fishing Shack, Level 1, 2, and 3.

2.1. Unlocking the Fishing Shack, Level 1

The Fishing Shack appears in your Garrison after upgrading your Town Hall to Level 2 and is originally locked. To unlock the Fishing Shack, visit it, and complete the quest line started by Looking For Help (Alliance) or Looking For Help (Horde), which is offered by the Fishing Trainer. The required level for the quest line is 94.

2.2. Unlocking the Fishing Shack, Level 2

To upgrade the Fishing Shack to Level 2, buy the Garrison Blueprint: Fishing Shack, Level 2 Icon Garrison Blueprint: Fishing Shack, Level 2 from Sparz Boltwist (Alliance) or Rezlak (Horde). Both NPCs are located next to the Architect Table in your Garrison's Town Hall. The blueprint costs 1,000 Gold.

2.3. Unlocking the Fishing Shack, Level 3

Garrison Blueprint: Fishing Shack, Level 3 Icon Garrison Blueprint: Fishing Shack, Level 3 is a reward from completing the Draenor Angler Icon Draenor Angler meta-achievement. This achievement is earned by completing: Sea Scorpion Angler Icon Sea Scorpion Angler, Fat Sleeper Angler Icon Fat Sleeper Angler, Blackwater Whiptail Angler Icon Blackwater Whiptail Angler, Fire Ammonite Angler Icon Fire Ammonite Angler, Jawless Skulker Angler Icon Jawless Skulker Angler, Blind Lake Sturgeon Angler Icon Blind Lake Sturgeon Angler, and Abyssal Gulper Eel Angler Icon Abyssal Gulper Eel Angler.

To complete these achievements, you need to catch enormous fish in the waters (or fire pools for Enormous Fire Ammonite Icon Enormous Fire Ammonite) of various Draenic zones. There are a few things that are worth mentioning to make the grind easier.

  • You need a Fishing skill of 650 to start catching Enormous fish, and the higher your skill the more likely you are to catch only Enormous fish (instead of the regular size). So, anything that can increase your Fishing skill helps. We found the following items to be particularly useful, as they helped us increase our Fishing skill to over 1,000.
    • Ephemeral Fishing Pole Icon Ephemeral Fishing Pole has a low chance to be fished in Draenor waters. It has a 1-day duration and increases Fishing skill by 100.
    • Hightfish Cap Icon Hightfish Cap has a low chance to be fished in Draenor waters. It has a 7-day duration and increases Fishing skill by 100.
    • Worm Supreme Icon Worm Supreme is a rare Draenor lure that can be fished and that increases Fishing skill by 200 for 10 minutes. When we did not have that lure available, we used Heat-Treated Spinning Lure Icon Heat-Treated Spinning Lure, which can be made by Engineers and increases Fishing skill by 150 for 15 minutes.
  • When fishing in a Draenor zone, you have a chance to catch a bait for the fish specific to that area. For example, when fishing in Nagrand, you have a chance to catch a Fat Sleeper Bait Icon Fat Sleeper Bait, which greatly increases the chances that you will catch Enormous Fat Sleeper Icon Enormous Fat Sleepers instead of the default Crescent Saberfish Icon Crescent Saberfish. Note that you can only have 1 copy of a bait in your inventory, so you cannot catch a second Fat Sleeper Bait before you use the first one. When a bait is active, you have a much higher chance to catch the same bait again.

Earning the achievement grants you the right to buy the blueprint for the upgrade, Garrison Blueprint: Fishing Shack, Level 3 Icon Garrison Blueprint: Fishing Shack, Level 3, from Sparz Boltwist (Alliance) or Rezlak (Horde) for 1,000 Gold.

3. Daily Quest

Every day, you receive a daily quest at your Fishing Shack, which consists in catching Draenor fishes and gutting them to get the quest items. This quest can be done in your Garrison. All you need to do is to get the bait for the day's fish (it can be caught in your Garrison) and then catch the day's fish in your Garrison's waters.

The daily quest increases your Fishing skill by 15 and rewards you with a Pack of Fishing Supplies Icon Pack of Fishing Supplies, which can contains baits among other things.

4. Unlocking Nat Pagle

After upgrading your Fishing Shack to Level 3, you receive Luring Nat (Alliance) or Luring Nat (Horde) from the Fishing Vendor at your Fishing Shack. Both quests require you to catch a specific fish from the waters of your faction's starting zone. It took us 10 tries to catch the Arcane Trout Icon Arcane Trout needed for the Alliance quest.

Finding Nat Pagle is the follow-up quest and requires you to go to the Krasarang Wilds in Pandaria to talk to Nat, who then gives you A True Draenor Angler, which requires you to catch 1 of each of these fish: Abyssal Gulper Lunker Icon Abyssal Gulper Lunker, Blackwater Whiptail Lunker Icon Blackwater Whiptail Lunker, Blind Lake Lunker Icon Blind Lake Lunker, Fat Sleeper Lunker Icon Fat Sleeper Lunker, Fire Ammonite Lunker Icon Fire Ammonite Lunker, and Jawless Skulker Lunker Icon Jawless Skulker Lunker. To help you do that, Nat gives you a special lure, Nat's Hookshot Icon Nat's Hookshot, which you need to active in order to be able to catch these fish in their respective areas. Do not use your own baits, as they override Nat's special lure. In average, it took us 12 attempts to catch each of these fish.

After coming back to your Garrison and completing A True Draenor Angler, Nat gives you An Angler on Our Team, which makes him one of your followers.

5. The Perks of Having Nat Pagle in your Fishing Shack

Nat Pagle sells a number of items, which require a certain level a friendship with him and a number of Nat's Lucky Coin Icon Nat's Lucky Coins to buy.

Item Friendship Cost
Nat's Draenic Fishing Journal Icon Nat's Draenic Fishing Journal None 25x Nat's Lucky Coin Icon Nat's Lucky Coins
Nat's Drinking Hat Icon Nat's Drinking Hat Friends 25x Nat's Lucky Coin Icon Nat's Lucky Coins
Draenic Fishing Pole Icon Draenic Fishing Pole Friends 25x Nat's Lucky Coin Icon Nat's Lucky Coins
Land Shark Icon Land Shark Good Friends 50x Nat's Lucky Coin Icon Nat's Lucky Coins
Reins of the Crimson Water Strider Icon Reins of the Crimson Water Strider Best Friends 100x Nat's Lucky Coin Icon Nat's Lucky Coins

Nat's Lucky Coin Icon Nat's Lucky Coins and friendship are earned by turning in Lunker fish to Nat Pagle at your Garrison, something which requires Nat to be assigned to work at your Fishing Shack. Each regular Draenor fish has its own Lunker version (for example Blind Lake Lunker Icon Blind Lake Lunker for Blind Lake Sturgeon Icon Blind Lake Sturgeon). Lunker fish are caught in the same waters where their regular equivalents can be caught (so, Shadowmoon Valley for Blind Lake Lunker). According to a comment on Wowhead, the chance to catch them is about 1% at Level 700 and it increases if you buff your Fishing skill (5-6% at Level 1089).

6. Lunarfall/Frostdeep Cavedwellers

Your Fishing Shack Level 3 allows Lunarfall Carp Icon Lunarfall Carp (Alliance) and Frostdeep Minnow Icon Frostdeep Minnow (Horde) to be caught in your Garrison. These items summon a Lunarfall Cavedweller and a Frostdeep Cavedweller respectively. These mobs drop a number of useful fishing items, including Nat's Lucky Coin Icon Nat's Lucky Coins. The chance to catch a Lunarfall Carp or a Frostdeep Minnow seems to be around 3-4% with a Fishing skill buffed to Level 1100. As with the Lunker fish, you can have a maximum of 5 Lunarfall Carp or 5 Frostdeep Minnow in your inventory.

7. ChangeLog

  • 02 Sep. 2015: Removed the mention of a 5-item limit for each Lunker type, as it seems to have been removed.
  • 13 Apr. 2015: With El's Anglin now being defunct, we added more information about Lunkers and Lunarfall Carp/Frostdeep Minnows.
  • 22 Jan. 2015: Missed hotfix that increased the skill-up from the daily quest. It now properly says +15.
