Possibly a personal Path of Frost/semi-mount hybrid? Would be interesting, my guess is it will work similarly to
except allowing you to fish.
I would be excited for this to make it so that I don't have to get or make Elixir of Waterwalking, but that flavor text dampens that feeling.
I think this will last about 10-15 minutes, which means that it'll be good for getting to one or two extra or hard to reach pools, and then fade. I hope I'm wrong, but we'll see.
This item has
Raft scales with character size (if you use costumes, etc.)
buff which makes the raft appear whenever you're on the surface of the water (just like the quest version).
Mounting up will drop the buff, but you can reapply it (no CD).
You can macro this together with fishing and never have to worry about refreshing water walking again!
/use Anglers Fishing Raft
Seems to have bug if you join battleground while having this buff your jump doesn't work at all. Getting killed won't fix it. Tried 3 times and every bg same thing. Right click buff or mount before joining battlegrounds!
Just be careful, you will take
while this buff is active,
when falling from great heights into water.
Edit: Can be used in Zones/Instances other than Pandaria.
Just tested within Orgrimmar and several non-MoP Instances.
It works very similar to
Edit 2: You can also make a cozy
in the midst of the ocean to grill your catch.
or deploy your
it will float on the water and you can still sit & fish in it.
This raft is so sweet!
In case someone was wandering, this is not consumed on use.
The raft is purchased from
for 700 gold at exalted.
The Anglers - Reverd
The raft works just like any water walking spell out there. Except for the speed bonus. Continuously tap spacebar to gain the raft speeding bonus. 270% top without any speed buff/enchants.
will remove the raft when you go stationary and gain the
stealth buff. Having the
will instantly remove the raft.
Transformation items and druid/shaman form listed below are still usable with the raft:
(Just adds a nice pink buble effect.)
(The 200% swim speed will not increase while on the raft.)
(Turns the raft into a translucent bright pink.)
Personally I like to use
with the raft. It makes a neat raft with a fishing chair on it.
Engineers can use their nitro boosts while this raft is active to go even faster. Also stackable with the raft speed increase. Got up to 675% with both nitro boosts and raft. Aspect of the Cheetah and Pack does not seem to stack.
Still works as of 5.2.
Still works as of 5.3.
Still works as of 5.4.
Still (somewhat) works as of 7.1.5 - Nitro Boosts and other movement increase buffs seem to not stack with the raft anymore sadly. Costumes still work.
Still (somewhat) works as of 7.2.5 - -||-
This raft is so worth the gold! With all the lakes and rivers there are in game, this item has such potential for fun in rp or just screwing around! And if you spam the spacebar enough (I've gotten up to 270%) It goes faster than a land mount with a waterwalking potion or buff. And the buff does not come off when you run to shore, it reactivates the moment you hit the water (or really you have to go in deep enough water for the raft to appear, you still run on shallow water though).
You can cast spells on it as well, I've sat on the raft once and buffed and healed a pallie on the side when he finished fighting a turtle. Damage spells don't knock you off either, only the moment you get hurt, so riding off a high waterfall is a bad idea. (And ever since that river boat quest reward... I've wanted my own boat that can be used outside of the Thousand Needles, and hopefully one a tad less... ugly. This more than fits the bill!)
Can use it in Rated Battlegrounds?
Can also work with the shaman Ghost wolf form to achieve at least 351% (from what I have seen) move speed.
Edit: Definite upgrade for a shaman over the old water walking/ghost wolf combo.
Best MOP mount.
I have tested the following and they all stack:
-Movement speed enchant
-Druid PvP feral set bonus
(This was patched to not stack with Feral Swiftness, so boooo)
When in Travel Form with feral swiftness, movement enchant, and Darkflight I can break 700% movement speed.
Does not work in battlegrounds, so we still can't beat horde to blacksmith.
You can use this in combat; it is only cancelled when you take a direct hit, so you can escape most mobs with it if you're near a body of water. It helps a ton in several daily hubs (Lake/Village for Lotus, Assassins/Mages for Shado-pan) to be able to drop combat whenever you want.
This item is a no-brainer. It's completely unique and has a lot of utility. You can go faster than a land mount and use it in combat.
If you have the buff active and are in Swift Flight Form touching the surface of the water will deshift you (normally you can skim the water in bird form and it only deactivates if you submerge).
Do you lose the raft when moving or jumping?
Be careful how you move and turn with the MoveAndSteer keybind, Right-click or pressing both mouse buttons.
Pointing the camera with just the Left-click or Set a View keybind will _not_ fix this problem.
Point the camera lower across the water with the MoveAndSteer keybind, Right-click or pressing both mouse buttons,
- so the raft stays afloat as you move
- so the raft appears automatically when you walk from the beach into the water
- so the raft appears automatically when you jump on the surface of the water
- so you can switch back to WASD keys or Toggle Autorun anytime and still be on the raft
- so you can Save a View with this camera angle to help remind you what angle was good to use
(if you save it under view #5, then set the view as a reminder in any macro with, /run SetView(5) )
Do not tilt the camera down from the air above too much ( > 45 degrees ), that is why,
- the raft submerges and dismounts
- the raft submerges and dismounts when you walk from the beach into the water
- the raft stays submerged and never appears when you jump on the surface of the water
- the raft submerges even when you switch back to WASD keys or Toggle Autorun or Set a View
(it remembers the last camera angle was tilted down with your mouse even if you just use the keyboard)
(tilting camera just with the Left-click is not enough, you have to first fix it with MoveAndSteer or Right-click)
For a button that auto-dismounts in air, refreshes your raft buff, equips your rod, AND casts fishing:
#showtooltip Anglers Fishing Raft
/use Anglers Fishing Raft
/equip Dragon Fishing Pole
Replace 'Dragon Fishing Pole' with your pole of preference and this should help streamline fishing from Pools.
Still works in 5.1
Nice thing is that I can renew the raft's cooldown while I am still using it and it just stays solid so can be on it indefinitely. I don't have to go swimming while the raft resets itself. Nice, Blizz!
I think this was said i above post but I didn't quite get the lingo so ...
This makes for an
escape across water, as well. If you're fighting near a body of water and you need to flee, just try to snare the mobs after you, apply the raft, and paddle away. It has helped me on more than one occasion!
Well, I built me a raft and she's ready for floatin'
Ol' Mississippi, she's callin' my name
Catfish are jumpin'
That paddle wheel thumpin'
Black water keeps rollin' on past just the same.
***Before you downvote, play
while on the raft and then come back**
In case anyone somewhat wonders, as I did, this does not count toward the
Bonus: If you are on the raft, push (and spam) your jump button. It'll make the raft go faster!
Go to lower
around 59, 62.
and face south.
Spam your space bar to paddle down the raging river as fast as you can.
Sail over the huge, scary waterfall and land a thousand feet below.
Uhmm, ok so the raging river is really just a tiny, peaceful stream... and the huge, scary waterfall is really just a five-foot drop... but c'mon people. Work with me here. Imagination!
To the lannn..... annnnnd of the losssssssssssst.
Is this raft trolly for anyone else? It likes to stop working randomly for me and when i jump it 90% of the time I dont land on the raft in the water (buff is still active through all of this). Refreshing the buff while the one is still active doesnt work, i have to remove the buff and activate it multiple times to get it to work again.
TL;DR Troll raft is troll
so what percentage does this actually go if your jumping?
For hunters that have managed to get thier hands on
and felt a little let down by
, combine with the raft for Super Cool 15 sec bursts, ideal for getting from Haywire to Skyclaw on the Isle of Thunder..
I've wanted something like this for years, but I have to say I find the raft a pain to use.
touchy. When I try turning with the mouse, I'm knocked off into the water, and sometimes it takes 30 seconds or more of jumping in the water for the raft to reappear. More than a few times, I gave up and went back to the shore to fish.
The duration seems arbitrary, too. If a time limit is required, why not just give it a 60 minute duration like the Pandaren charm?
You can use your on your belt while are you on Raft.
Didn't feel a need to buy this but with the 5.2 fishing day pool locations its pretty much required. Oh well.
For those FISHING that CONSTANTLY get frustrated by the "dismount" ....
And fish like normal!
Even works with FISHING BUDDY.
Enjoy your raft to the fullest now, my fellow anglers!
Random Fact: If you try to use this at Sunsong Ranch, you'll get an error "Spell cannot be cast on a stealthed target." And the buff disappears when you enter the phased area. Sadly, you cannot raft on your pond at Sunsong. :(
Neat. Just got the raft after 2 weeks of turn-ins with Nat and starting the Anglers' dailies after making L90.
The 10-minute timer on the raft is easy to deal with, as it gives a count-down and few second grace period after the 10 minutes. That allowed me to click the raft icon again before it dumped me in the water. I've added it to an action bar along with a couple other fishing related items to make it easier to toggle. Clicking the raft icon while fishing will cancel fishing, so try to time it between casts.
Since 5.3, I can´t reactivate the raft if I get hit. Makes soloing Gnathus much more difficult :/
Sadly this appears to have been silently nerfed. You can no longer re-cast this if you're in combat. :( It was lovely while it lasted, At least it still works indoors where mounts don't.
All Warlocks be told, if you use Burning Rush while on the Raft, you will go VERY, VERY FAST. And it stacks with the Raft's own stackable speed bonus.
It's simply amazing.
Edit: it seems to have been fixed already o_O
My god this thing is buggy. Just dismounts for no reason then you can be jumping all over the place in water to get it to activate again. Very annoying.
I'm not sure what happened, but I used to be able to sit stationary with my Hunter's
ability. Now it seems that I have to be moving while camo'd or I fall into the water as soon as the stealth aspect of
Jumping forward (like when you do while you mount a ground mount) will increase the swim speed of the raft for a good amount of seconds by around 20%-25%! Spamm jumping and you can end up at a 270% swim speed!
This is a chris craft for sure!
The ability to cast from this raft makes it useful for chasing Evermaw around the Timeless Isles. Great for those of us who don't have water walking (of some variety)
Environmentalist (i.e. Tree Hugger...) =
Global Warming skeptic (i.e. it took 200+ trees to make this one raft that will only last a few minuets..) =
this is a very very fast mount and it stacks with other speed buffs to make it even faster this raft can be used ANYWHERE there is water. however it does have limitations cannot be used in combat and you will lose it if you take damage however it has no CD so there is nothing stopping you from popping it once you leave combat. Unless you are flying or are out of phase (meaning you're invisible). you will also lose the buff if you mount a flying mount or use an ability the turns you invisible
Has anyone tested the raft with ?
You can do Survey (Archeology) on the raft! I just love love love my new raft!
For those who were not aware, this works with the
Druid mount glyph
! So you can carry allies who don't have their own anglers raft! (great for helping someone get Evermaw!)
This was a nice addition to my smart mount macro:
/use drake of the west wind
/use Anglers Fishing Raft
/use red skeletal warhorse
This will mount a flying mount in a flyable zone, a ground mount in a non-flyable zone and your fishing raft when in water and unable to fly, with one click.
As a druid I went
with the 2set feral pvpgear
my runspeed reached 1080% Im sure you could reach even higher with some potions and other stacking effects.
Particularly awesome if you're a hunter; you can keep shooting from the raft. This is particularly useful when chasing after Evermaw on the Timeless Isle!
In WoD if you have a follower acting as your bodyguard (lifeguard?) unfortunately they don't get the share the raft with you. They sadly tread water next to you as you fish.
Using this with
I truly loved this thing when i first got it. Now I am beginning to loathe it. Why you ask. Because as of late it is as buggy as a dog at a flea convention.
I've had it time out in less then a minute, time out when I caught a fish, not work at all when activated, clicking the icon and clearing it and recasting does not work, sometimes signing off and on again gets it to work, sometimes not. Sometimes it works fine. It has become a Jekyll and Hyde device. Great when it works, IF it works.
I still try it, but I also keep some water walking around, unfortunately it comes in handy.
with Raft's help:
Afenar, Howling Fjord.
This items is dreadful now. I just got it on WoD, went out on the sea in a level 90 zone (nothing at all can bug me) and had it just malfunction 8 times in 20 minutes! I just went to shore to work on my achieve and junked this piece of garbage.
DO NOT waste time to rep grind for it, it doesn't work.
In WoD, Nat can be phased such as when he's normally stationed in your garrison. For some reason, even though I was Revered with the Anglers, Nat was not to be found (nobody else either) at Angler's Wharf. I decided to do the MoP fishing dailies (Mimic Octopus, et. al.) and when I went to Angler's Wharf everybody was there including Nat so I could buy the Raft. It's obviously a great item especially in WoD when fishing for Felblight around Hellfire Citadel and its 10-stack debuff instant kill.
Warning - item broken
This buff is currently broken, not working as it should be. I am out of combat, jumping on water like a crazy orc and there is NO WAY to tell when the system will decide that I am worthy of actually getting the raft. Here, there is a situation for you: I get into water. Cast the raft. Jump above water, land back inside. This scenario is repeatable. This is SOOOO ANNOYING! So my entire several weeks grinding the Anglers reputation to get this item is totaly invain, because, not kidding, it is more effective for me to go on land, kill any mobs close to me and start trying to fish from land. Trying to hula-hop in water, constantly removing and reusing the raft and still swiming is more time consuming, and what is worse, I payed for it and I lost some of my gametime on an item that is broken.
I find the following macro to be useful to dismount above water and immediately land on the raft.
/use Anglers Fishing Raft
As a couple of others have mentioned, this thing has become
an ungodly pain in the ass
slightly temperamental. I've found that if I happen to move the camera as I go to click the fishing bobber, the raft interprets that action as me wanting to go underwater and is perfectly eager to accommodate. I end up swimming with the fish rather than catching them.
This seems to be a recent thing, as I don't remember having this issue in Mists (I've just returned from a long break from the game). It's either bugged, 'working as intended' or my ability to navigate with the mouse has gone severely downhill since I last went fishing a year ago.
It took me two weeks to grind up the rep needed for this raft; it was worth every minute. I was actually going for the waterstrider mount...I've used the raft a thousand times and never touched the mount after I got it.
This item is becoming a toy in Legion!
Due to the popularity of this tool I have created a Wowhead
! Check it out and feel free to leave suggestions for me in the comments :)
New Toys - Old Items Converting to Toys
I figured it's better now than later to start farming the old items that will be converted to toys in Legion. Who knows if they'll lower drop rates or how heavily they will be camped once they're added to the toybox.
I made myself a Google Sheets document to track all the toys being converted and it has the ability to mark off the item once you've found it. With the filters I can then hide any marked off toys. This has really helped me find and track the long list of items and I wanted to share it with the community. I've heavily cleaned it up for sharing purpose, so feel free to use it as you please!

7.0 seems to have broken the macro feature for this toy:
/use Anglers Fishing Raft
/use Nat's Hat
This macro used to work great, but now it only casts the Anglers Fishing Raft.
The raft now travels at full speed without the need to hammer the spacebar!
If you have
as a follower, he will sometimes come visit you while you're out fishing in Draenor. If you're using this raft, he will jump into the water and feverishly try to climb onboard. Then he deliveres one of his lines and drops dead, right there on your raft.
You would have thought that an experienced fisherman like him knew how to swim...
why doesn't it work in the darkmoon faire waters?
In Legion, it IS a toy... but you still have to be Revered with
AND have 525 Fishing skill to use it on each toon.
EDIT - As of BFA launch, the requirement was changed to
level one instead of the Revered rep with
. You still have to get your overall fishing skill up to 525 on each toon.
Can be cast while slowfalling using a
Goblin Glider Kit
. Makes you ready to float the moment you hit the water.
Has anyone else had any issues with this working properly? Mine keeps disappearing when I'm trying to use it.
Reputation requirement for alts removed, can now be used with just the 525 fishing skill once learned.
As a side perk, this item is usable in many indoor areas. I have not tested it extensively, but a good use would be to activate the raft prior to mining in your WoD garrison cave. When you reach the area with the large pond, you can walk across the water to the node and mine. No swimming or water walking needed.
Has anyone else noticed this being mysteriously absent from the toy box in the last few weeks? I've only been able to see it in the toy box of the character who originally purchased it. No other character, regardless of the previous rep requirement can even see it in the toy box much less use it.
I have put in a ticket and will update when I hear back on it.
Unfortunately with Legion the
became a toy and the macro does not work anymore.
/use Anglers Fishing Raft
You still need 525 fishing skill to use it, but the use of this toy is not bound to reputation. So alts can use it too, even if they never met
The raft seems to be removed on BfA ptr and beta, RIP
Still buyable in 8.0.1. Tooltip is wrong, usable with 1 Pandaria Fishing skill.
If you are a Druid you can use this item to your advantage while moving around zones that contain a lot of rivers and lakes like Tiriguard Sound and Nazmir.
I have tested the speed cap that it travels at while spamming the space bar in various forms.
I used the addon "DejaCharacterStats" to show my movement speed in the character stats window :
No Shapshift - 287%
Travel form - 200% (For some reason its capped at this)
Bear form - 287%
Cat form - 317% !
Treant form - 267%
Moonkin form - 252%
As you can see, spamming the space bar while travelling around in cat form is obviously the fasted method of travel, even faster than using a water strider mount! This can come in handy when moving around the coast finding fishing nodes and even moving around the flooded areas while doing world quests!
It wasn't always this way (I'm pretty sure) but now spell casters can battle without losing the raft. I just had an encounter with
and stayed on the raft. What an awesome benefit because I was suddenly ultra mobile.
Shirikon: Still buyable in 8.0.1. Tooltip is wrong, usable with 1 Pandaria Fishing skill.
Exvite: Can confirm this. Exalted on my main. Alt with recently purchased fishing, 0 casts, and no Angler rep even discovered on my reputation pane was able to use this.
Thank you guys so much, this was exactly what i was looking for. welp, now to hop on every alt and go get pandarian fishing. lol
is this account bound?
I'm currently unable to see this item at all on any of my characters who have not bought it, even as an un-obtained toy. Having Pandaria fishing level 1 or more doesn't seem to help. Making sure the 'show usable' is de-selected also does squat. It's like the toy doesn't exist.
how does this work with the 525 fishing skill requirement when pandaren fishing goes up to 75? do i need to get a total of 525 fishing skill, eg vanilla, bc, wotlk, cata and panda fishing skill totaling 525?
As of 10/22/2018 (BfA Patch 8.0) it's a great time to knock out both the Exalted with anglers rep for the Water strider mount using Pandaria timewalking badges (good link here
). While doing it, might as well get the fishing raft at revered as well. Stop by Halfhill in Valley of 4 winds, and speak to "Ben of the booming voice" to get Pandaria fishing level 1, you'll need it, as well as revered with the Anglers to buy this toy. That's all that is needed.
in Battle for Azeroth to use a Raft you just need to be Revered with The Anglers and have level 1 Pandaria fishing. Raft is, as far as I checked, fully usable on BfA waters.
It seems the toy only requires Pandaria Fishing (1) these days. I have the toy and I can use it on an alt which is only Friendly with the Anglers. Fun fact is that the Use text still mentions the revered reputation requirement.

If anyone was curious, unlike the Water Strider mount, this toy did not lose its water-walking functionality on release of 8.2. Works exactly the same as before... bugs and all XD
One very handy use for the Anglers Fishing Raft is getting onto your flying mount while you're swimming and you're far from shore. Cast the raft, then press and hold the space bar to swim to the surface and jump up. You'll be standing on the raft, and able to cast your flying mount just like being on dry land.
If you're wondering whether this raft will prevent fatigue when travelling across the seas, it won't. You can still get fatigue and die of fatigue using the raft.
Can be cast while moving, which means, if you jump from a height into water, you can cast this mid-air. You hit the water and you're dead! (just like waterwalking elixirs)
If you don't see this in your toys suddenly, make sure 'Usable Only' filter is turned off.
If you can't find it with your Twink/Alt: "Requires fishing from Pandaria." W/o it you can't see it in your toy menu.
I was pushing this thing around like a peasant for two years before I realized you can increase its speed by pressing the space bar. I am not a smart man.
Interesting observation: Soul Shape & Flicker do not break Angler's Fishing Raft - the combo of which effectively gives Soul Shape water walking.
One of the great benefits I've found with this raft is that I can spawn this raft and then hop on a flying mount when I've been swimming a long way from shore.
As a clarification, I use LiteMount to choose mounts and it always chooses an underwater mount when I'm in the water. I
manually select a flying mount, but I'd either have to waste a button spot or use the Collections menu. The raft is easier.
This works currently. double tap for the raft. cast fishing after one second reset .
/castsequence reset=1 Fishing, Anglers Fishing Raft
My raft has been buggy since last update. I was using it at the Fisher Friend spot of Sha'leth and every 3rd cast or so my raft would just despawn even though I still had the buff and 9 mins left. Even at times when I would just move with the pool you have to fish from it would just randomly despawn and I would be swimming. Also fishing has been very buggy for me as well especially with Fisher Friends. Today and yesterday when I would cast my line the hook cursor would not even show up nor would I receive the loot from a bob/successful catch. I got no message "no fish were attached" I have max fishing in all zones and I even made sure my Fisher Friend currency was emptied when needed. Yesterday finishing up for Corbyn I had 0 shiny baubbles and 3 casts in a row "ping" for a catch and I got no fish, no baubbles, and no message that it was unsucessful. Even a few times I auto looted fish but they didn't even go into my bag. It has been frustrating to say the least. Especially today with Sha'leth where the raft makes it 10x easier but for me it was more of a menace!
This can be used in Dragonflight.
For someone that is not willing to invest that much time to get this raft, have a look at Tuskarr Dinghy ;)
