Hello and welcome to this guide for the “The Scavenger” achievement in World of Warcraft.

For this achievement we’ll be travelling across Azeroth and The Outlands to a variety of locations ranging from the Western Plaguelands to Zangarmash to fish from 5 junk nodes. The Scavenger awards 10 achievement points upon completion.

The five junk nodes that we’ll need to fish from to complete this achievement are:

  • Steam Pump Flotsam
  • Schooner Wreckage
  • Floating Wreckage
  • Bloodsail Wreckage
  • Waterlogged Wreckage

General Tips

There are no set locations for these fishing nodes so refer to the links provided under each junk node and fly around the locations following the pins.

There seems to be a set amount of fishing pools/nodes that can be up at a time. So if you are flying around an area and cannot find the junk node you’re looking for, fish from any of the fishing pools you see to remove them to have a chance for the junk nodes to spawn.

You don’t have to fish from the 5 junk nodes in any particular order, so go about them as you wish.

Steam Pump Flotsam

The Steam Pump Floatsam nodes can be found here. It’s only location being Zangarmash in The Outlands.

I found my Steam Pump Flotsam node here just south-west of Cenarion Refuge.

Schooner Wreckage

The Schooner Wreckage node can be found here. It’s locations include Wetlands, Ashenvale, Hillsbrad Foothills, Stonetalon Mountains, Arathi Highlands.

However I would advise against going to Stonetalon Mountains or Arathi Highlands due to the lack of potential fishing nodes.

Floating Wreckage

Floating Wreckage nodes can be found here. It’s locations include Eastern Plaguelands, Swamp of Sorrows, Tanaris, Blasted Lands and Thousand Needles.

The only location I would not recommend would be the Thousand Needles.

Personally I found my node while in Tanaris after farming Zul’Farrak for some transmog, just south of Gadgetzan.

Bloodsail Wreckage

Bloodsail Wreckage nodes can be found here. It’s locations being The Cape of Stranglethorn and Northern Stranglethorn.

Both these locations have a good amount of potential nodes so either is fine.

Waterlogged Wreckage

Lastly Waterlogged Wreckage nodes can be found here. It’s locations being Western Plaguelands, Desolace, Dustwallow Marsh, Feralas.

All of the locations are ok but preferably not Feralas. I personally recommend Western Plaguelands due to the simple path of the fishing nodes.
