Screenshot a Day – 13

As part of Tycertank’s screenshot challenge, we’ve been tasked with posting a screenshot a day based on a series of predefined topics spanning the entire month of August.

Day 13: Fast

Sea Turtle

Although he may not be very fast on land, the Sea Turtle gives a nice speed boost allowing you to move 60% faster in a body of water. During BC and Wrath, I did not have much luck when it came to fishing up pets – it took FIVE Mr Pinchy’s before he granted me a Magical Crawdad pet. The Sewer Rat in Dalaran was not much better as it took many hours over several weeks to fish mine up.

When the Sea Turtle was announced, I was not looking forward to another round of fishing with not much to show for it but I would soon find out the tide was turning. After psyching myself up one particular afternoon, I flew to a picturesque spot in Howling Fjord and settled myself in where the unexpected happened… I managed to get it from my very first cast!

    • Thx! It may not have been my first attempt at fishing up the turtle but that kind of luck has never been duplicated. The closest would be fishing up my Sea Pony in the first 45mins the night it came out.

  1. OMG there are mounts you can earn by just fishing? Is there one particular spot in Northrend you have to go for this one?

    • The mount was exclusive to Northrend pools but you can now fish this up in Cata zones, Pandaria and even the DMF – just make sure you stick to pools.

      Good luck!
