Your Daily Bread - WoW Fishing, Cooking, and Jewelcrafting Quests

Posted Tue, Apr 27, 2010 by Mem

If its Fishing Daily Quests you seek, head on over to the Eventide section of Dalaran. There standing next to the fountain in all her fisherwoman’s glory is Marcia Chase. Marcia not only offers travelers fishing wares, and training, but she is the provider of your Fishing Daily Quests. Marcia will offer players one of five random quests. The quests themselves are randomly chosen each day, but will be the same for everyone on a particular server. When completed Fishing Dailies offer a Bag of Fishing Treasures, that can contain a myriad of items, ranging from mundane gray and green items, to valuable purple gems and blue items.

Blood Is Thicker

  • Marcia Chase in Dalaran City wants you to bring her 5 Bloodtooth Frenzies.
Bloodtooth Frenzies true to their name, are attracted by blood. Players will need to head to Borean Tundra and slaughter one of the beasts wandering there. If you have done the quests in this zone, these are the animals the D.E.H.T.A had you previously save. Please keep in mind that the player must be the one getting the killing blow, if you fail to get the killing blow you will not receive the proper debuff.


A Pool of Blood. Attracts Bloodtooth Frenzies.
After you have gained the Animal Blood debuff, head to the nearest body of water and jump on in. This should create a red pool of blood in the water, perfect for attracting Bloodtooth Frenzies. Be sure your bobber lands inside the pool when you cast, and fish away. Once you have collected 5 Bloodtooth Frenzies head back to Marcia Chase in Dalaran to collect your booty.





Jewel of the Sewer

  • Marcia Chase in Dalaran City wants you to bring her a piece of Corroded Jewelry.
For this quest you will be heading to the dank and dirty Sewers of Dalaran to try your luck at snagging a valuable. Marcia warns you not to pull to hard when trying to pull up your potential loot and you should take her advice to heart. Once inside the Sewers begin to cast as normal. The trick is to wait until the bobber has stopped moving and then pull in your line. Players have also reported better results fishing in the deeper Sewer waters (near the boats), however I have not confirmed this myself. If you seem to be reeling in more than your share of junk, try attaching a lure for better results. Once you have your Corroded Jewelry return to Marcia Chase for your prize.

Dangerously Delicious

  • Marcia Chase in Dalaran City wants you to bring her 10 Terrorfish.
 Terrorfish can only be found in the frigid waters of war torn Wintergrasp.Terrorfish similar to Pygmy Suckerfish are not caught on their own, but will appear in your loot window along with other fish. This is not a bad thing since most of these fish are required for the highly valued Fish Feast. Since this is PvP territory players will not only need to watch out for mobs, but also enemy players. To complete the quest more quickly, bring all your fishing gear and lures for max fishing skill.

If you are not able to fly into Wintergrasp you will need to wait for the portal to appear in Dalaran. Take the portal and make your way to your faction’s flight master. This will give you a permanent way to get into Wintergrasp unitl you can fly in on your own. Once you have collected 10 Terrorfish head back to Marcia to collect your reward.

Disarmed!

  • Marcia asks you to find a prison guards Severed Arm and then return to Olisarra the Kind for reattachment.

I wonder if she ever tires of reattaching that arm? (Comic submitted by Fyreuni and featured on the offical WoW site).
To complete this quest players previously had needed to travel to the Frozen Sea, in Patch 3.3.3 Blizzard made a change and now players seeking this macabre item need not leave the comfort of Dalaran. Head to Violet Hold and begin fishing in the waters near there. There is nothing more you need to do except wait for the appearance of a Bloated Slippery Eel in your loot window. This Eel has made a meal of the Severed Arm, loot the Eel, collect the Arm. Remember this quest is not returned to Marcia, and you will need to seek out Olisarra the Kind who can be found in the Magus Commerce Exchange in Dalaran. After finding Olisarra you can collect your reward and ponder when exactly the previously mentioned guard is going to take the hint and get a new job.

The Ghostfish

  • Marcia Chase sends you on a grand adventure to discover the mystery of the Phantom Ghostfish by any means necessary.
Marcia tells you the fish hides among the suckerfish in River’s Heart (Sholazar Basin). Make your way to River’s Heart (be sure it shows it on your minimap), located roughly in the center of the Basin, and begin to fish. If you are lucky you will soon have your very own Phantom Ghostfish taking up residence in your bags, but what to do with it? Marcia wasn’t kidding when she said “by any means necessary” you are expected to ingest the Ghostfish. Do it quickly though, because if you wait too long the Ghostfish will fade into nothingness and you will need to begin again. Once you have eaten the Ghostfish head back to Marcia Chase to report your findings and collect your reward.
