This I got from fishing in my lvl 3 pond. I threw it in and it spawned a Frostdeep Cavedweller and it dropped and . Though I already have I was suprised.
You can invite a friend, have them phase to your garrison and kill the murloc together. That way you can give away the hat/pole :)
Because the mob spawned by this minnow has a chance to drop the time-limited fishing poles and hats, I recommend you save up your multiples rather than using them right away. That is, after you've used 'em and gotten a pole and hat for the next few days, keep any extra minnows you fish up until one or the other expires.
Right now I've got three poles in my inventory and I wish I'd saved my minnows until after they're gone!
I just used 5 of these and every time I either got a
. I even got a
So how exactly does this work? Can I catch the Minnow and summon the Murloc every day? Only once? A fixed number of times and then I'll never be able to call him again? Anybody know?
i just received the riding turtle from it.
this little guy.
Does anyone have an estimate as to the catch rate of this? Obviously the listed one will be inaccurate due to people fishing with level 1 and 2 fishing shacks.
These are fished up from the waters in your Garrison, and seem to require a level 3 Fishing Shack before they can be fished up. Throwing one in the water will spawn a
which can drop pretty much anything fish-related, from Fishing hats, Nat's Coins, to the fabled Turtle Mounts.
I fish one of these up in about 10, 15 minutes with a rough fishing skill of 1100.
Just got 2
s from throwing in 5 more minnows! See the screenshot here
I caught 5 of these from the first 50 minutes (one each worms buff) then nothing the next 50 minutes.
are they a limited daily?
I just fished 3 of them up in the lava outside the garrison.
Keep a few of these on you. They summon a when used in your Garrison. When killed, they often drop
. It's a great way to "keep" some of the duration fishing items on-hand.
In addition, the Cavedwellers have a small chance of dropping
the trading card variant, and
which is the fishing pool variant.
If you invite someone into your garrison, you are able to "give" these items away to someone else.
confirmed, you can fish that at the north gate of your garrison at 69.00 5.25 but you can only throw at inside your garrison next to the fishing shack
Does anyone know if you can catch one of these while using bait in your garrison pool? Or can you only catch it bait-free? I ask because I'm trying to farm them and worried I'm eliminating my chances by using sea scorpion bait.
Used to summon

As well as it always seem to drop one of following items:
Then there is a small chance that it may give special items like:

I thought about removing the baits from this list as they depend on how regularly you clean your bags, but that would've impacted the percentages.
So i cleaned up my bags every time i had 5 minnows.
I hope this helps.

I fished up 11 within about 2 hours. Then my 2nd frost Minnow i threw into the water gave me the epic turtle mount. I haven't fished since expac came out and i unlocked nat pagle. With all the new food i decided to fish today. After i caught those 11 fish i stopped catching them continued for about an hour and nothing. ( It was around 7 - 10 am server time on a saturday if that helps) i think it might be a morning thing.
The most valuable fish in the game.
About 1700 casts and 80
and I got
. total time 8hrs. Good Luck
I seem to do better using
, especially when using both
and one of the hats. Makes sense, as a minnow is a small fish. Shouldn't need full fishing power to catch one.
Can anyone confirm that you can fish these out of someone else's garrison as long as you have a lvl 3 fishing shack?
Does anybody know if fishing skill drives the catch rate of these? I'm debating whether using Worm Supreme as bait is having any impact or not.
EDIT: I think fishing skill does drive the catch rate. I tried 30 minutes with no bait and got a total of one (at 900 skill). After 10 minutes with bait (1100 skill) I got three. I realize this is very anecdotal and is a very small sampling, but I'm still pretty confident that your skill does affect your catch rate.
Took me 881 casts with 1000 fishing skill, 27
later and I finally got my
Since the hotfix of 15 September 2015, the same hotfix that broke the display of Realms in Battle.net client, I did not catch a single
in the garrison lake. Even allowing for RNG, with 2681 casts, that seems to me pretty conclusive evidence that Blizzard has yet again altered the drop tables for the garrison fishing pool.
3 days of farming, about 60 minnows and I got this lovely mount.
Never give up <3
I was fishing for the first time in my garrison and on my 13th cast I received my first
Be careful if you have Auto-loot on. I've fished up one of these before that never actually made it into my inventory, nor postmaster recovered. Could have been a bug, but could be like Old Crafty in Org where auto-loot screws you over.
Can someone confirm that if you own one of these turtles a turtle you own can drop again from the Frostdeep Cavedweller? i suggest since its rng it can happen but im not really sure and its not refered anywhere!
As of the reset on March 1st 2016 - anybody else notice the drop rate seems to have plummeted?
Can anyone confirm or deny that you can have a friend come to your garrison with a lvl 3 fishing shack and fish this for themselves if they do not have the fishing shack at lvl 3 in their own garrison?
Drops Riding and Sea Turtles - 1 in 80 chance for both. Drop Rate is more like 1 in 40.
These are Unique - (5).
If you happen to have a stack of 5 and catch any more, you WILL be able to see them in the loot window.
However, you will not be able to loot any more.
It will not be sent to your mailbox but be lost forever in the
Use caution when using these while in a group/raid. Your group/raid members can roll on your loot if they are in range, regardless of if they hit the mob.
I'm fond of hosting realm hop raids while I fish, and found out the hard way when someone rolled and won stuff from my cavedweller.
Has anyone noticed a nerf in the drop rate since 7.0? I havent been able to fish one up.
As the Legion pre-patch was introduced, the loot from the mob spawned is personal loot, which means if you have a group of 40 players, and one player spawns the add, everyone will get the loot from it, so farming the mounts have become A LOT faster! Don't know if this is intended or not, it might get changed soon.
Since the changes to Personal Loot in the Legion pre-patch, the loot from
can be looted by EVERYONE in a raid group.
This means that creating a 40-man raid of people that are fishing simultaneously in the garrison can increase your changes of fishing up rare items like
by 40 times
. There are many such groups in the Group Finder as of late July, 2016.
Note that everyone fishing must have the achievement
in order to fish up the
that summon the Cavedwellers. The achievement is
required to loot the mount, however.
The loot method should be set to Personal loot, of course.
when looted from
in a group can be traded within that group within a 2 hour window despite being personal loot, feel free to bring a friend along in case a mount you have already learned drops again.
FYI - they must have nerfed it since Legion dropped. I was just in a raid group and only one person was able to loot the body even when it was set to personal. Just don't waste your time if you are trying to get coins as I was getting coins wayyyy faster by myself.
I havn't been able to catch any Frostdeep minnows and Ive been fishing for several hours. Is there something that I might be doing wrong? I understand the droprate is really low but I didnt think it would take this long. Is it because of Legion?
I just farmed one of these up for the
bonuses before heading out for my fishing sesh. I had a 920 fishing skill rating while farming for the minnow and caught:
2 each of
1 each of
... Which means I got 1 minnow over 54 casts, or a little under a 2% drop rating. I don't recall it taking that long when I farmed for these back in WoD. Anyway, up to you to decide whether that's worth it for the bonuses. Keep in mind you probably won't get both the hat and pole in the same minnow, either. I only got the hat before I said screw it and went back to the Broken Isles.
EDIT: I ended revisiting my garrison later in the day in order to farm mats for
, and when I attached the
I caught two more minnows in only about ten casts! So if you're having trouble, talk to Nat and try throwing a piece of bait on your pole. Hope this helps!
I have had bad luck with fishing those minnows the last few days. So this morning I decided to do some statistics. Aprox 1½ hours of fishing, no breaks, 5 minnows at a time.
Standard fishing rod, fishing skill @800.
110 swings. 26 minutes.
Underlight angler, Nat's Hat, Nat Pagle's extreme Anglin' Boots + a few other whistles and bells, fishing skill @1025.
138 swings, 32 minutes.
Standard fishing rod, fishing skill @800.
175 swings, 42 minutes
Well. The drop rate dropped from 4.5% to 2.8% and it seems like the garrison dried up. But I guess it's pure RNG. The equipped Underlight Angler didnt help (as I expected). 4.2-4.3 fishes per minute. I will try to keep this updated until the turtle mount drops.
March 23th - another 5 minnows.
326 swings, 79 minutes. *sigh* :(
After the mounts, and not timing, but have the fishing addon installed - 464 casts, several missed pickups, 21 minnows, lots of hats, lots of rods from the cave dweller. So my drop rate on the minnow is sitting at 4.5%, no mounts yet, and one section of app. 40 casts with no minnow dropped. Ported to the boat yard, hearthed back to the garrison, 2 minnows in 5 casts.
Am throwing them in as I catch them so as to not miss too many from having a full stack. It feels like the game is trying to give me a 5% drop rate on the minnow, but if you move you seem to break the flow. .
Am sitting on the stool behind the fishing stack - hope you have better luck than me.
So 5 days in, and yes the novelty has worn off - still sticking with the stool behind the shack. It still feels like the game is pushing for a 5% drop rate on the minnow. The one thing I have found is the npc is dropping nat's coins. The rate is difficult to process, however I've gotten app. 30 since starting. Much easier than lunker farming. Stats so far with no mounts:
Baits drop almost as soon as you use them, so you always have a full set. Cresents are standard unless you use a bait, and then that's what you'll get till the bait wears out. Happy Farming. Almost forgot, have fishing running between 1181 and 1191
Got the Riding turtle mount today after 189 trys out of 200 as the % is to get it .
Also in the loot of that kill i recived:
1 x Enourmous fat sleeper
1 x Enourmous Crescent Saberfish
> riding turtle
1 x Worm supreme
1 x Tentacle hat
1 x Very unlucky coin
26 x Fire ammonite Tentacle
Date: 18-04-18 ! so its still rollin!
Can anyone confirm if these still drop? I cant fish up anything but small fish now in draenor even with maxed out fishing.. I think its bugged.
Can confirm that frostdeep minnow loot is
as of 23 December, 2018 and
players can loot the same cavedweller, therefore incentivizing fishing in raid groups once more like it was in the legion prepatch.
For comparison, I fished up 250 minnows without seeing a single turtle but got
20 minutes into joining a raid fishing group. Good luck out there guys!
on approximately 350-400 casts. The 15th kill dropped the
, which is fortunate based on the estimated 1/200 drop rate.
Other loot collected in the 15 kills:
Assorted fish, bait, and gray junk
If you are interested in trends, or are just superstitious, here is some other information:
I did not clear my bags of anything at any time
I used the
after catching 5 of them, not after each catch
I was fishing directly behind the fishing shack
I didn't use any bait
I recommend getting a
from the Fishing Vendor at the Fishing Shack, in your Garrison (as Horde,
sells it). It will help you to save bag space by insta-filleting any fish you fish!
4200 fish, 218 minnows, still no turtle...
