Fishing for parts

Sometimes when I’m bored I go fishing and Zangarmarsh is a great place for an Engineer to fish for spare parts.  Along the outside of each of the lakes are pools of Steam Pump Flotsam where you can catch a bunch of good engineering stuff.  In addition to the usual vendor trash you can catch Heavy Supply Crates and [Inscribed Scrollcase]s. The crates can contain any of the following: [Fell Iron Ore], [Handful of Fel Iron Bolts], [Netherweave Cloth], [Knothide Leather Scraps], [Elemental Blasting Powder], and [White Smoke Flare]s.

Rarely you’ll catch an [Enourmous Barbed Gill Trout] or an [Enourmous Fel Tail] which are great for leveling up your cooking in that hard to get 370-375 range.  Also you could catch a [Strange Engine Part] which begins a turn in quest with K. Lee Smallfry. It gives you 12650 experience, 2g 20s (9g 79s at Level 70). Browncoats may recognise the writing on the bottom of the engine part.

So next time you’re bored and your toolbox is empty grab your fishing pole and head out to Zangarmarsh.
