  1. Fishing Below are some of the fish that people commonly ask about. You have to understand that fishing takes time, and it will feel even longer because of the nature of fishing: not much happens. I provide information that is consistent for me, and how I do it. If there are more efficient spots then please respond to the thread and I might update this after I have confirmed it in-game myself. There are no fishing pools. The recommended fishing skill takes into consideration that you are using the highest eligible vendor lure for the skill level. E.g. +75 lure for Steamwheedle Port in Tanaris. The fish mentioned below can all be fished below level 35 and 225 skill. You can buy +5 fishing poles; one is sold in Ratchet. ***************************** Oily Blackmouth If you have trouble finding these then go to Hillsbrad Foothills and fish from the ponds and rivers there. You will get a stack of Oily Blackmouth in about 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes. I tend to stay away from fishing these since the gold per hour is really low. Recommended fishing skill: 150 ***************************** Stonescale Eel Tanaris at Steamwheedle Port is a good spot for these. You will get a stack of Stonescale Eel in about 1 hour. Steemwheedle Port also gives you Raw Spotted Yellowtail (in large amounts) and clams (which gives you Zesty Clam Meat, and has a chance to give you a Golden Pearl). Recommended fishing skill: 200 ***************************** Raw Nightfin Snapper Feralas is a good spot. Horde players can safely stand in Camp Mojache and fish for these. You'll get about 1 stack of these in 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes. This fish and Raw Sunscale Salmon are time dependent. Below is the day-night cycle for these two fish. 12 Midnight to 6 AM → Raw Nightfin Snapper 6 AM to 12 Noon → Raw Nightfin Snapper & Raw Sunscale Salmon 12 Noon to 6 PM → Raw Sunscale Salmon 6 PM to 12 Midnight → Raw Nightfin Snapper & Raw Sunscale Salmon Recommended fishing skill: 225 ***************************** Cooking If you are going to cook then pick up fishing. Easiest 1-300 ever. ***************************** [1] Recipe: Brilliant Smallfish [50] Recipe: Rainbow Fin Albacore (Kilxx in Ratchet) [50] Recipe: Longjaw Mud Snapper [85] Recipe: Savory Deviate Delight (Rare drop in The Barrens) [100] Recipe: Bristle Whisker Catfish (Kilxx in Ratchet) [125] Expert Fishing – The Bass and You (Old Man Heming in Booty Bay) [175] Recipe: Mithril Head Trout (Kelsey Yance in Booty Bay) [225] Recipe: Spotted Yellowtail (Gikkix in Steamwheedle Port) [225] Recipe: Filet of Redgill (Kelsey Yance in Booty Bay) [240] Recipe: Grilled Squid (Gikkix in Steamwheedle Port) – Seasonal “fish” [250] Recipe: Nightfin Soup (Gikkix in Steamwheedle Port) [250] Recipe: Poached Sunscale Salmon (Gikkix in Steamwheedle Port) ***************************** 225 Cooking quest: Gadgetzan. Zesty Clam Meat is found in the clams fished from Tanaris. Save them for this quest. Look in the auction house for the Giant Eggs whenever you visit a major city during your leveling time. You can buy them cheaply. Get the Alterac Swiss from wherever. Use a database. ***************************** 225 – 300: Just cook 5-7 stacks of Raw Spotted Yellowtail or Raw Redgill. Both are green at 300 skill. Or cook Raw Nightfin Snappers and Raw Sunscale Salmon at 280+. Both are yellow at 300. ***************************** Non-fishing recipes that are useful: [100] Recipe: Crispy Lizard Tail [130] Recipe: Curiously Tasty Omelet [175] Recipe: Roast Raptor *****************************

    Oily Blackmouth?

    Go to Hillsbrad and fish from the rivers and ponds. I've catched several stacks from Hillsbrad Foothills, but it just takes some time. Probably 1.5 hours for a stack.

    Spotted Yellowtail locations

    Tanaris at Steamwheedle Port. The majority of fish that you will get from there is Raw Spotted Yellowtail.

    H/A Cooking guide 1-300

    You can run down to Tanaris and stand at Steamwheedle Port at level 20 (or earlier if you want) with 200+ fishing. You will get tons of Raw Spotted Yellowtail which you can cook once you get to level 35 and have done the cooking quest. By the time you have fished that much you will have several stacks of Zesty Clam Meat for the cooking quest as well. Tanaris provides plenty of Firefin Snappers and Stonescale Eels, so definitely worth it.

    Stonescale Eel

    I believe they removed schools of fish more than half a year ago. Nowadays you just get the fish from certain areas by fishing. To get Stonescale eel a good place to fish is Tanaris. You can get around 20 Stonescale eels in an hour or so. Good luck with the fishing.

    Hunter Macros & Tips [Redux]

    Yea. I figured that might have been the case. (: Do you use any specialized macros except for the one on the previous page and those provided by Raziya?

    I'll have to play around with raid targeting since I think it is an important skill to develop. The end goal is to build a reputation as a Hunter, after all, and every skill matters. (:

    I prefer to use SuperMacro, which could give you the ability to use more than 255 characters. Very helpful/useful AddOn. I assume you already know of its existance, but thought I would let you know regardless. Really interesting read, and something I'll tinker with. Three thumbs up

    Ahhh. Thank you. Will probably have to check which keys I'll go with since I use some of them for other things. (: Maybe the F1, F2, etc. buttons.

    Hunter Macros & Tips [Redux]

    Happens on all Shift- keybinds I have, and I have no keybinds set for LazyPig. I tried that out since I figured that might have been the problem, but it wasn't. Either way, I managed to fix it by not keybinding it to a Shift modifier. (:

    Hunter Macros & Tips [Redux]

    Thank you for the answer. I managed to solve a few things this morning. The Scare Beast macro was on the Shift-R keybind. Since I use Lazypig I can't put the bandages on a Shift- keybind, but apparently the use of pots work. Probably because the pots are not part of a macro that looks for a particular bag space and use the item there. I put it on Alt-Middle Mouse Button instead and it is now working as intended. :P The Raptor Strike macro didn't work with the Addon !toggle, so I modified it into the following: /run if x==9 then CastSpellByName("Raptor Strike") else end /script IsAutoRepeatAction(61) then CastSpellByName("Attack"); end /cast Raptor Strike /cast Counterattack(rank 1) /cast Mongoose Bite The first /run line isn't needed, and I'm not sure what it does, but I kept it there to show the CD and tooltip of Raptor Strike. Might have been the reason why you put it there? And thank you for the AssistUnit("Pet") function. Works amazingly. By the way, I've looked at some of your dungeon videos, and you (raid target) mark really quickly. What do you use for that? Cheers, Scarab/Cheela

    Hunter Macros & Tips [Redux]

    Greetings, Raziya. I posted on your thread back in the days, and we tried a target and clear target macro that I was writing. Alas, it did not work! I'm back here to share some of my personal macros that I've found to be quite... useful. But, I also have a question regarding a macro that I'm trying to create. Growl /cast Growl /run local i,g=1,0 while GetSpellName(i,"pet") do if GetSpellName(i,"pet")=="Growl" then g=i end i=i+1 end local _,y = GetSpellAutocast(g,"pet") if not y then ToggleSpellAutocast(g,"pet") else ToggleSpellAutocast(g,"pet") end This casts growl, but you can also toggle it on and off. It is one of your, or a contributors in one of your threads, macro. The only thing I added was the toggle at the end. Pet Attack /script CastPetAction(2); /script CastPetAction(10); /script if UnitExists("target") then if a==0 then PetAttack(target) a=1 else if UnitExists("pettarget") and UnitIsUnit("target", "pettarget") then PetFollow("Cheela") a=0 else PetAttack(target) end;end; else PetFollow("Cheela") a=0 end; This is a pet attack macro that attacks the target if it isn't attacking. If it is attacking then it returns/follows you. If you target another target it attacks that target. I got this macro from some source on Google. Can't remember the url. Charge /run local i,g=1,0 while GetSpellName(i,"pet") do if GetSpellName(i,"pet")=="Charge" then g=i end i=i+1 end local _,y = GetSpellAutocast(g,"pet") if y then ToggleSpellAutocast(g,"pet") else ToggleSpellAutocast(g,"pet") end This is the same as the Growl macro, but I had the ingenious idea of switching it to Charge from Growl. This gives me more control and can be applicable to other toggle abilities on the pet. Really useful for charge since it is based on range. I have some problems with two of your macros, however: /script if (not PlayerFrame.inCombat) then AttackTarget() end /cast Raptor Strike /cast Mongoose Bite and /script if GetUnitName("target")==nil then TargetNearestEnemy() end /script if UnitIsFriend("player", "target") then UseContainerItem(0, 16) else CastSpellByName("Scare Beast") end The first one toggles the auto attack off, and requires that I click it twice, which is a big hassle. However, I think I can fix that. But, if you have some suggestions then they might be quicker and more efficient. The second macro doesn't allow me to bandage myself. If I click it nothing happens when I or any other friendly player is targeted. If I click a second time it puts one bandage from the stack to another bag space. This I could really use some help for since I can't find anything wrong with it. Now to the macro that I'm trying to create, and why! Assist Pet %%Placeholder -Target Pet (there is a keybind shift-F1 for this) -Assist Target (which would be pet) The problem is to target the Pet. Do you know any way to do this? /target name doesn't work and is unreliable since my pet sometimes become known as 'Unknown'. This macro would really be useful when a lot of mobs are around my pet, and it allows for better micromanagement overall. I've been in several situations when this would be great to have.
