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

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

Catching Gold 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 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.

Detailed Guide: Dalaran Fishing - Complete guide to fishing in Dalaran.

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.

  1. Lucky buff increases catch rate.
* 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.
