Fishing Changes in BfA
You now catch the same number of fish regardless of your fishing level.
In BfA each expansion has it’s own profession tier with a max level.
- Classic professions max out at 300
- Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, and Mists of Pandaria professions max out at 75
- Warlords of Draenor and Legion professions max out at 100
- Battle for Azeroth professions max out at 150
- For (Horde) Silent Tali in the northern part of Dazar’alor.
- For (Alliance) Alan Goyle in the north-eastern part of Tiragarde Sound
You can learn this fishing training at any level, which is a welcome change.
