1. So i was talking with some guildies about mounts and i linked them my turtle mount and asked them if they had this 1 already. They both didnt have it and were trying to get it for a month or so.


    When i told them i got 1 on 3 toons and obtained it in less then 2 hours the first thing i heared was, bs!, impossible, cant be done cause gm said also it has a really low droprate etc etc.


    Well, unlike most lazy buggers on Warmane i research alot on the internet when i want something and there is 1 pool that simply has a bigger chance to fish up the turtle despite the low droprate.


    What you need: 450 fishing and the fish finder turned on (which you should have had already while lvling fishing, it drops from the floating crates) I don't have the epic pole, i did it with the first pole you get and put a lure on it.


    Now go to howling fjord and to this pool






    And just keep circling the pool, if no1else is there, by the time you finish 1 round all the schools of fish have respawned and you can comple your circle again.


    I had my first turtle in 3 rounds and the other 2 in 5 and 7 rounds, i told my guildie if you dont get it in 10 rounds i pay you 5k instead i got a whisper with "holy ****, you were right, i cant believe it" so hopefully this works for you too ;)


    If you don't get it under 10 rounds i guess your 1 of the unlucky ones :)

  2. can you give coords, and name of the lake/pool pleas, ill ty so much.

  3. you never linked the location,but i figured it was the lake near camp winterhoof and i was right ,i did what he said do and got it a sec ago !! big thanks !!

    Hello

    No one has mentioned what realm and version of wow that they obtained the turtle mount on.

    I play on Lordaeron Wotlk 1x rate and so far, this will take allot longer.

  6. All I can confirm is 1 hour trying HF my results are:

    Totals: 320
    Fangtooth Herring : 185 - 57.8 %
    Bonescale Snapper: 68 - 21.3%
    Pygmy Suckerfish - 39
    Glacial Salmon - 39- 12.2%
    Crystallized Water - 13 - 5.9%
    Reinforced Crate - 11 - 5.9% (15 colbalt ore, 12 borean leather scraps, 3 frostweave cloths.)
    Dark Herring - 4 - 5.9%

    Did 10 rounds at probably a 65% cast rate into the school pools.

    Will try again tomorrow, will post results.

    Pretty burnt out after 3.5 hours it took to getting the sewer rat pet in Dal.

  7. Specify your realm man! Got me excited.

    Yes, as of two years no one has mentioned what realm. That would be helpful.

  9. On Lordaeron, Winter's Breath Lake and most (if not all) fishing pools have been severely reduced. The lake has only 1 or 2 pools now that are on about 15 minute timers, same goes for the coast line. There used to be numerous fishing pools in Howling Fjord.

  10. Confirmed and i guess thanks to this post **** got nerfed so much its not even worth fishing.

    it wasn't because of this post, they did a fishing overhaul in general. The catch rates and pools are now "blizzlike". Even on icecrown is feels like im fishing with retail rates. Kinda sucks tbh because fishing isn't that great in this game and not something I want to do for hours. Don't expect to get that turtle mount so easily anymore as all rates are now nerfed. No more finishing the fishing daily in 3 casts lol.
