The Anglers Reputation and Nat Pagle Friendship Farming Guide (MoP 5.4)

9 comments

The Anglers are a faction of fishermen that you will find at the Anglers Wharf in the Krasarang Wilds. After reaching level 90, you will be able to increase your reputation with the Anglers through daily quests.

The famous Nat Pagle is the leader of the Anglers. You will be able to increase your friendship with him (independently of your reputation with the Anglers), by turning in items (which can be fished and turned in from level 85 on).

In this guide, we will detail the reputation/friendship grinding process and list the rewards you can obtain.

1. Overview↑top

Every day, you will be able to do 3 daily quests at the Anglers Wharf in the Krasarang Wilds. All these quest are related to fishing, although only a handful actually require you to fish. Each time you complete a daily quest of the Anglers, your fishing skill is increased by 1.

Additionally, when fishing in Pandaria, you have a very small chance to obtain items that enable you to increase your friendship with Nat Pagle. Each of these items starts a daily quest, meaning that you can only turn a specific item once a day. Upon completion of the quest, you receive friendship with Nat and reputation with the Anglers.

From the point of view of the reputation grind, doing the 3 daily quests at the Anglers Wharf will grant you 1,500 reputation every day. If you turn in the items for increasing your friendship with Nat Pagle, you will be able to earn 1,500 friendship and an additional 1,050 reputation with the Anglers (2,550 in total).
