This guy only spawns during the fishing tournament (Sundays, 2pm-4pm, server time). You don't have to get the quest to participate, so you can just go out and fish to your hearts contempt (without paying him a visit first). :]
This NPC is part of the Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Competition. Which takes place every Sunday between 14:00 and 16:00 Server time.
These are the items that can be won if you are the first person to hand in 40
Arcanite Fishing Pole
Hook of the Master Angler
Once someone has won the fishing competition, you can still hand in your remaining
in Bootybay. (repeatable quest)
Here is a link to all the rare fish that can be caught during the Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Competition and their drop chance (with thanks to Zubzubs's post on the Lucky Fishing Hat), plus the rewards you get when catching one and handing them in at the
Lucky Fishing Hat
Brownell's Blue Striped Racer
Nat Pagle's Extreme Anglin' Boots
High Test Eternium Fishing Line
not sure about drop chance, 0% according to Thottbot.
--> Dual wielding Fish Power!!
Uhm... is this the compitition? Or what?
Trouble finding Riggle Bassbait?
He hangs out with
in front of the inn in Booty Bay (near the fishing trainer,
It's worth noting that Riggle Bassbait is NOT a member of the Booty Bay faction. Therefore, players who have aligned with the Bloodsail Buccaneers are still able to talk to him, despite their reputation with Booty Bay. They can, indeed, win the fishing tournament.
You will still have to fight your way to him, though. But yeah, better than the 168 stack of cloth :P
guys, if im unfriendly whit booty bay can i speak whit him? or its sux?
ahh sry i did not see ur comment Jforsyth :S
if u hated with booty bay?
Fun Fact: 3.2.0; he isn't standing ON the box, he is standing IN it. =)
LOL I am new Rogue human, just new to WOW. I am over whelmed and some what frustrated learning the way to play WOW and enjoy the game too. However, I found this to give me some what of guardian angel at my back. It gives me a place to review and I don’t have to figure and learn every thing all at once. I want to enjoy leveling and not die trying everything while I explore the continents. Thanks. I love fishing. Minifey
I have not done the tournament before // guess the times have changed
Just to confirm, on slow days you can win 1st second and 3rd prize if you actually want too spend the time, and no one else turns in fish.
The actual tournament doesn't start until 2PM PST (aka 5PM EST). This NPC shows up at 2PM server time (at least he did for me on Vek'nilash) and informs you about the tournament, but does not offer any quests at that time (before the beginning of the tournament)
I know that I posted replies to other posts but people unfamiliar with Booty Bay and the guards or just haven't played since Wrath should be aware that the guards are 110 and despite not being elite mobs each one hits like a train when attacking melee, ranged attacks don't hit as hard but knock you back a ways and there's a high chance other guards will aggro and start shooting you.
Everyone seems to be a winner in his eyes now. :)
AND WE HAVE OUR FIRST PLACE WINNER! CONGRATULATIONS!
Get use to this.
Copule of questions on this "world quest"
On 4/16/2017 Logged into my server @ 2pm server time to pick up the event for the first time. I noted many other players were around asking if the event had started, after about 30m the crowed thinned out as the general consensus was that the event was either bugged or not working.
This lead me to two thoughts: Can we confirm its 2pm server time and not still 2pm PST? and Does Fishing skill matter - as in does one need to be skill capped?
What the hell is going on with Blizzard and this Contest? I show up 2pm server time EST nothing going on not even the npc. I comeback 3hours later for 5pm server time est and still nothing no guy or anything to say this contest is going on
Ok so today I am flying towards a Kazzak kill and behold Riggle is announcing the fishing tourny. I had to double check what day it was! Its a Tuesday - what the fudge?
This "quest" in 2020..... My god its awful. Here is the meta for you folks:
Use a character that is high level, preferably 110-120.
Race: Highmountain Tauren (racial - chance on bonus fish from fishing)
Class: Druid (insta-mount to fly form)
If you really are sweating it, have a warlock + 2 other friends stand by in Booty Bay at the dude, as soon as you get your fish, have them summon you there, you save about 2-3 seconds of running.
If you do not do the above, set your hearthstone to Booty Bay, then pray.
Haven't had a chance to turn in anything yet as people are running these setups and the event ends in approximately 13-15 minutes. Meaning for you to do it, the stars kinda need to align...
Last Sunday of 2020, on a low pop server... took all of 16 minutes for him to declare the contest was over.
I had 34 fish. :(
I do not understand that. It's Tuesday today. In Stormwind I open the map and see the fishing competition in Booty Bay. It says: 21 hours left. Ok, I'll fly there, the map marker with the fishing competition disappears and there is no
there. What have I missed?
I just won first place on my server! (yay!) Unfortunately, when doing the
STV Fishing Contest
Master Angler of Azeroth
I came across some problems and I'm hoping I can prevent others from making similar mistakes. Here's a few little pro-tips to ensure you get your shiny new
Dread Pirate Ring
and that ever so coveted
First off, make sure you get the
I showed up about 2 hours early lol,
but at least I wasn't late!
I saw some mixed answers in other Wowhead comment threads and in Google searches and such. I assumed the contest would start at 2pm
and found out shortly after getting there that I was wrong, it in fact
Secondly, bring some form of
Some of the pools you need to fish from can be difficult to reach, especially if you're a shorter race like gnome, goblin, or vulpera. I personally just bought some
Elixir of Water Walking
Draenic Water Walking Elixir
off the AH. There was only a few of each up on my server so I bought a couple of both. You won't need more than 3-4 at the absolute max, but I ended up only using 2.
Third, buff up that
as much as you can.
The chance of catching
is increased based on your total fishing skill, including increases from lures and such. I personally have been fishing a lot in my Garrison lately so I went in with my
Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat
that I got from there and
"The Broker's Angle'r"
which you can just buy from any
Shadowlands Fishing Trainer
. Those two items add a flat 20 fishing skill on top of whatever you already have, plus the hat has an on use effect that will put a lure on your fishing pole for 10mins which adds another 7 fishing skill (which could be higher, but
will cost you more gold.)
Fourth, set your
to Booty Bay.
This is sincerely the fastest way to get back to the quest giver once you've got your 40 fish. It's not super important on lower pop servers but it does save some precious time. To those on higher pop servers, this may be the one thing that sets you ahead of your competition.
Last but certainly not least,
TURN ON WARMODE
I play on a relatively quiet server and even showing up 2hrs early to the contest I ran into about a dozen other people preparing for the event. I was terrified of the competition so before I went back at the right time I turned on WM, thinking that anyone else competitively fishing while being prone to ganking is crazy lol. Thankfully I ended up being perfectly fine, I didn't see a single other player for the entire 14 minutes that I was fishing. There wasn't even anyone around the quest giver when I got there and didn't see anyone before I left.
I hope this is helpful, and if you have any more questions about either the
STV Fishing Contest
or any other achievements related to
Master Angler of Azeroth
just reply to this comment and I'll do my best to answer. If this was helpful to you, I would really appreciate it if you left a like so others can also find this information later.
Thank you so much, and happy fishing!
