Catching Gold Coin
Notes: Each of these gold coins bares the name of the person that had thrown the coin into Dalaran's fountain. These people are all very famous citizens of Azeroth. Each coin's description reveals what they were thinking at the time. Gold coins bind to the angler when caught, but there is no confirmation dialogue.

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: "Arthas, my love, please come back to me." - Lady Jaina Proudmoore. "I wish to know how you survived my wrath, little fountain." - Archimonde. "Just once, I wish someone would greet me without making a stupid joke about gnomes or time travel." - Chromie.
