Copper Coin - El's Extreme Anglin' - WoW Fishing Guide

This page summarises how to catch Copper Coin. For a more detailed guide, see Dalaran Fishing.

Catching Copper Coin

New or changed in Wrath of the Lich King, which is not yet available on live realms. Information here may not apply to live realms yet.

Notes: Each of these copper coins bares the name of the person that had thrown the coin into Dalaran's fountain. Most of these people are famous citizens of Azeroth. Each coin's description reveals what they were thinking at the time. These copper coins are items, and cannot be used as money. However you can sell them to a vendor for considerably more than their face value.

Commentary: If you study the history of Azeroth, you may find the wishes on these coins particularly interesting. Here are a few of my favourite wishes: "I wish that jerk Arthas would fall into a pile of magnataur doody." - Dornaa. "Pah, the fountain in Gilneas could grant ten times as many wishes as Dalaran's!" - Genn. "I wish the water in Northrend wasn't so cold, it makes me sleepy." - Murky. "I wish I'd kept that coin..." - Landro Longshot.

* Catch rates shown are without the Lucky buff. With the Lucky buff (gained by throwing a Gold Coin back into the fountain - see Dalaran Fishing), the catch rate of coins approximately doubles, and the catches of other items are reduced by a third.

The catch rate is the approximate proportion of all catches in the area from the water/pool type that are the named fish.
