Odds of getting one are 1 in 24 boxes of cards give or take.
... in other words, if you get one eBay it.
This mount does not make you go any faster than walking speed. It's just for looks :).
This is one of the rewards from Blizzard's World of Warcraft Trading Card Game.
The mount moves at normal speed. so unfortunately its just for looks.
There are a couple other items you can achieve from the trading card game as well.
Tabard of Flame-
Tabard of Frost -
and a couple non combative pets which i forget the names.
Just neat items that give your character a unique feel against the norm of a wow servers.
Should be noted, as this is a mount it can be affected by +mount speed items. I know this doesn't really mean a lot but if you have a talent (Eg. Pursuit of justice or Animal Handler) you may be able to mildly increase your mounted speed at lower levels. Plus the mithril spurs and glove enchant could come in handy.
Most you can get at low levels is glove enchant (+2%) and mithril spurs (+4%) so that means you can make your mount speed 106%... which is actually slower than a minor speed enchant...
I would love to get this mount. Do you have to get the card? Is there a different code on every card?
In terms of "rarity", this is one of the rarest items in the game. The other two items - the Hippogryph Hatchling and the Tabard of Flame - are rare, but not by comparison.
You cannot incerase the speed on this item. and the speed on it is normal run speed inside world of warcraft.
j/w since its not really a mout=nt can you use it at any level?
nevermind i found that out
This mount IS affected by mount speed items as I have found. I do not own this item but I've researched and come to that conclusion. If not it's interesting at least. And if you don't want this mount and you have the card, you can sell it on ebay for crazy amounts. :P
Paladins with crusader aura on effectively give this turtle a 20% boost in speed from your base-walking speed. This turtle is no Netherdrake, but it's still very unique.
How is the turtle code redeemed in game? Is it simply login in into your account on the web and there will be a place there to enter it? Could anyone explain it, please? Thanks!
Sorry, I am dumb (too early to read straight). The code is redeemed in Booty Bay, as stated before on comments.
Watch out for people trying to sell you a code, they may be trying to scam some gold out of you.
I know from personal experience. =
I still don't get how you get the turtle. Do you get the Riding Turtle trading card, and then look for the promotion code on it and put it on to your account? Or what? Please tell me =)
the card costs on average 50-60 dollars on ebay, with some up high as 150.
riding turtles arent as fast as normal mounts but i liek them because 1 they still get u places... but in style lol....... and 2 they might be a little bit faster than walking
lol i whonder if this mount works with crusader aura
if u got mithril spurs would it increase this mounts speed
Where does it come from and how hard is it to get?
The Riding Turtle comes from the World of Warcraft TCG (trading card game)
Heroes of Azeroth (
1/484 booster packs
Heroes of Azeroth booster boxes contain 24 boosters and cost approx $45 USD (inc. shipping), therefore the average cost of obtaining this particular loot is $908.00.
How much would I expect to pay for one off eBay or similar?
(most information sourced from there), the lowest Buy It Now price starts around $100 USD upwards to $130 USD, with the average quantity listed hovering around 5 items.
On land, turtle mount moves at normal character running / walk speed.
In water, swim speed increased to 100%.
No riding skill is required to use.
Can be affected by +mount speed items and spell effects.
When learned, the turtle mount counts toward the Mountain \'o Mounts achievement.
Useable at any level and therefore available for twinks.
How do the Loot cards work?
Loot cards are special rare versions of WoW TCG cards found in booster packs, starter decks, and raid decks that have a revealable unique code. Once this protective layer concealing the code is scratched away, a 25 digit promotion code is revealed that can be entered into the Blizzard offical promotions page. These codes work for both US and EU servers.
I have the 25 digit loot code, now what?
All accounts from every region in the world use
to redeem any and all special loot. This webpage allows you to enter the 25 digit promotion code and also select the region and realm for the character that will receive the loot item.
Upon succcessfuly submitting the above information, you will be presented with an in-game code. Write this code down or print it out; you will need it to retrieve your item. Log into the game with the character that is to receive the item and travel to Booty Bay in Stranglethorn Vale. There, you will need to find a goblin by the name of Landro Longshot. He is located on the lower parts of Booty Bay on the docks, and should be easily recognised due to the fact that he has a distinctive purple shirt and two body guards next to him.
When you find Landro, he will first ask if you are here for a promotion, and then ask you which TCG expansion your item comes from (or Points Redemption); check your loot card if you are not sure which item that is. Ensure you have got bag space to hold the item!
bought 1 pack of cards and got it, used it on my 19 twink :D
I have one in game. Before it was made a epic mount (along with the other loot card stuff) when it was still white named they required level 20 to use. They removed the level limit after turning it epic. The turtle CAN be effected by all mount speed effects. I dont know all the names of them atm but Apparently if you get alot of the mount speed bonus items (spurs, carrot on a stick, riding crop) It can be near 100% speed when all used together. While someone would probably have a epic mount by that time they can get all that the turtle mount can be turned into a epic mount speed and its like a free mount :D Im happy with my turtle very fun to play with.
This might be a bit irrelevant but I've seen this card alone sell on Ebay for over 200 dollars.
What is the mount special for this mount?
while riding this mount can u use
and get a free 60% mount?
No, that won't work the way you think it will.
Can I get it from TCG when i play on free server please?
This is in fact a mount, thus affected by
(20% mounted speed). But.. If one took
to the boots they'd get a 4% speed increase to this beautys speed, however this isn't anything you should be thrilled about..
-enchant on boots adds 8% to run speed, this mount goes as fast as run speed. So basicly not using this mount and just using a
-enchant on boots is faster unless you have a paladin with you.
Another note too, even if you had
-enchant on your gloves, it wouldn't matter. It adds 2% to your mounted speed, thus still being 2% slower if you just had minor speed on boots. Also, the third item you'll get to increase your mounted speed is
Carrot on a Stick
, but the quest is min. for level 40 - at level 40 you get the
Ofcourse this is just
a flavor mount
, to ego around and hop happily with your turtle, but I thought that I might aswell bring up this useless information that might come useful for some people.
Original Outriders (twink guild) almost all of them have these! I was mixed up in one of their Warsongs...sorry, but Original Outriders>Alliance.
Guys i would like to know where is the place where i can find them if some1 is a player of wow please wisper me(Silmariol)
how do i get that riding turtle?
Cutest riding mount in-game imo :)
Be prepared with a /dnd thing explaining it, because while riding this mountyou will likely be bombarded with questions like:
OMG WHERED U GET THAT MOUNT
Can i have your mount?
Can i get the TCG code plz!
Can i buy that from u!
OMG CODE PLZ.
What people dont seem to realise is that the code is a ONE TIME USE! Any questions like "Omg can i have yoru code?" or something like that is a clear sign of someone who has no idea what the hell the mount is. A question like " Where do you get that" isnt so stupid and should be explained in your dnd. Here's my /dnd message
The turtle mount is from Saltwater Snapjaw loot cards from the TCG. And no you cannot have my code it is a one time use.
Blizz needs to make this a BoA item
Would this mount count towards your
(Leading the Cavalry) achivment? It may be slow but It's still more epic than the 3 seater Mammoths IMO. :P
Yes, it does count towards the achievement.
I have seen many level 19 twinks with this mount and a +4% mount speed on their boots therefore they do get a 4% faster speed then everyone else in the battleground
have both had new idle animations added in patch
Previously when pushing your jump button whilst idle, it would just raise it neck. The new animation when jumping whilst idle makes the turtle jump up into the air a short distance and get inside his own shell for a brief moment, leaving the player sitting on what looks like a shell of a turtle.
new 3.2 patch notes makes all the TCG mounts no longer BoP!
except this once, of course
Kind of a noob question: When you turn in the code you only get one single mount, its not available to all your characters on that account, correct?
I love it. Turtles are my favorite animal. Checked E-Bay and they go for hundreds of dollars. :(
how cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute! how do i get one?
wat is redemption
wat is redempition
The saltwater snapjaw card aka the card which gives you the riding turtle was my first ever TCG card and I didnt know what to do until I looked up the website and found that shiny cards give you good things ^_^
I buy one for 32 Dollars to my Twink ^^
I have a thought.... Since a level 1 can use this, and preserved holly works on it, does that mean that theoretically a level 1 can use this mount with preserved holly, and get a 60% mount?
People are sure it doesn't have a water movement speed increase?
So just to confirm: This mount can not be traded as it's BoP - right? Meaning I can
find it on the Auction House. Correct?
I'm a sad panda. WTB this for gold, not cash. :(
Correct. The item is BoP, therefore it will Bind to whomever picks it up. HOWEVER! You might be able to find someone selling the actual code for a fair wedge of Gold. Such trust is risky though, it is easy to be fleeced out of money for codes that do not work.
Edit) Was a reply to Isiwen.
Increases swim speed by 60%/300%.
if this comes from the "Saltwater Snapjaw" card, I'm pretty sure I threw one of these out:O whoops. *shake my head*
I just bought this mount from a guildie for 160k. Well worth it in my opinion. I love mounts and rare ones are even better. Rampagerogue/Blackrock
I got this card yesterday
I sold it to a realmie for 100k
Last time i had a mount card, i sold it for 30k, Lesson learned!
Im happy with ma gold :)
This mount will be part of the Black Market Auction House in Mists of Pandaria.
can u buy the card at a store is you can what store?
Other than the loot card itself, this will be obtainable with the Mists of Pandaria expansion pack through the Black Market Auction House. Be prepared to pay big for it!
These other fun things will be on the BMAH as well:

this news post!
how can i get it
It's probably a bug, but an alt below level 20 isn't able to mount this from their mounts tab currently.
If you've discovered the same, here's what you need.
/use Riding Turtle
I have tested the speed of both the
on a level 1 toon using the monkey speed addon.
I can confirm that:
- both turtles are usable by all your toons on the same realm (as with most almost all other mounts),
- both turtles can be used by level ones (without riding skill),
mount up guild perk
does increase your speed up to 110% running speed,
- both turtles swim at 108% running speed,
- neither the
2% riding speed glove enchant
stack with the guild perk,
- a macro with /cast riding turtle or /cast sea turtle allows a low-level toon to bypass the current bug which prevents dropping the mount's icon on your interface. This macro works for both mounting and dismounting.
Just got this lil guy for 29k off of the Bmah, odd the last one went over 110k guess it was quiet yesterday. Keep checking your bmah if you see it up watch and see, sometimes you can get lucky.
This mount is usable at any level with the command /use Riding Turtle. It's ground speed affected by the guild perk Mount Up, so enjoy +10% movement speed for your character's first 20 levels.
Just got this bad boy out of
and i got the box for only around 22k :D
bought so many containers trying to find it...still no luck
Item was on BMAH on 12/15/2013 - Not within a Unclaimed Black Market Container
I uploaded a screen print as there has been much confusion.
It might not be common to see it alone but it does happen.
Just to add to the comments on the speed of this mount, in Vashj'ir it will run on the sea floor at 275% run speed...not all that useful after getting the Seahorse mount, but far faster than any other mount that springs to mind for run speed.
This mount drops off the

Thanks Blizz, not only did you devalue this mount by just recolouring it and allowing ANYONE to fish it up you now have devalued it even more by allowing ANYONE to loot it from a container.
apparently, this can now be fished up from your garrisons pool
Now that this drops from
is this the only TCG mount that can be aquired in-game without gold?
the below statement is wrong. he confused with
this mount is exclusively from TCG loot card
the one the guy talk about and who drop of garrison spawn is diffrent color, it's blue.
Upon investigating the claims of a TCG mount dropping in game I've found this
quick link for people who don’t want to read
it does in fact drop happy hunting fellow mount farmers!
Dropped from my first ever caught Lunarfall carp from garrison waters. To say that I'm shocked is to say nothing.
I finally got it after 106 Lunarfall's carp !
Just got the riding turtle from my Garrison,
Can the sea turtle also be fished from the garrison or only pools?
Really now you make it a drop ? I find this one of the worst things you could do because u cant take the OLDEST AND MOST CLASSIC TCG that people spend money or were really lucky to get and make it an ingame EASY drop. Whats next spectral tiger from a stormwind npc for 10gold ? ... personally this saddens me because i had the chance to obtain this mount and it was the only TCG mount i had and was not sellable in AH so it was a pure TCG drop, Now even the most random player in WoW who logs in to talk to his guild and logs out has it!
Atleast give players who had this mount before WoD an achievement.
Got it after 37 Deepfrost Minnows. Drop rate for my minnows was 4.2%.
Had planned to spend a few hrs fishing today. Been fishing Minnows on and off over the past 3 days.
I don't know if this increased my chances at all or if it was just my time to get it. I had a bunch of people in my garrison at the time so they could use Erris and Harrison. I had loot on FFA so I could loot my kills. Tossed 2 Carps, the mount and the Captian Rumsey's Lager recipe both dropped. The recipe must have been for someone else because I could not pick it up, and I already learned it.
Curious if other people have had the same experience.
Got this cutie today after 9 Frostdeep Minnows.
4/6/15 Got my
just now! Took about
from Frostdeeps's and at most
12 Nat coins
and basically every drop available from the book to the monocle in the process. Was at
w/ the hat and the fishing pole the frostdeep's dropped + the
which I ended up with 3 stacks of. Took all night with not really paying attention fishing while watching netflix with the wifey. I would recommend not spawning them until you get the max stack of 5 because it seemed like every time I got one, the next one I got came a lot quicker and they always dropped in quick succession, when I used one then fished it always seemed like an eternity passed before the next one dropped.
Also, when using a lot of different bait, a higher fishing skill most certainly made it drop quicker, every worm supreme used I always got at least one to drop while as with the 100+ and the 75+ only got me one every other or more.
I did not have Nat as a follower while doing this
Good luck everyone! I'll be trying for the
Edit: 4/7/15 Just got my
with the same exact setup. Make sure to have your fishing as high as you can, collect 5 frostdeep's and then kill all 5 before looting. It's all I did, with 1100 fishing skill and it worked with both turtles. (: I hope you guy's get one too.
4606 casts and counting. 157 carp and no turtle yet. got the sea turtle on 48th carp
edit: 7/31/16 it took around 10000 casts and 800 carp in addition to recently grouping up in a 40 man raid for it to finally drop.
If you have both this and a water strider set as favorite then the mount feature will summon the water strider if you're swimming at the surface and the turtle if you're under water. This is nice since the turtle comes with increased swim speed.
136 minnows and still nothing, well, I already have the sea turtle, don't know if it can drop again, but anyway I'm going for riding.
I will get to 145-146 today, I try to do 20 per day what takes 2-3 hours.
If the drop rate is right, 0,5%, then everyone in this topic got lucky, until 200 kills you're not unlucky, and it can take around 1.000 if really unlucky, hope it's not the case.
I also would like to point out that with my amount of minnows fished so far and with an average of 7 per hour, it's taken me already 19 hours and half to get them, if you consider you can make 3,5k gold per hour with cata 25 hc raid soloing we're getting close to 70k I could've made, therefore if you get unlucky you can get this mount for less gold in BMAH (on a medium-high realm I saw it sold for 47,5k).
Edit: finally got it today, 177 minnows, if drop rate is accurate I still got slightly lucky!
According to my calculations, 7 minnows per hour means I did 6.068 casts which is more compared to what it took me for sea turtle (4.400), and I fished for a total of 25 hours and some mins, sea turtle was 29 (as you had to fish from pools, riding one you can spam fish in garrison waters).
And if I had farmed gold from cata 25 hcs and bought it from BMAH I'd have made over 87,5k gold in this time, and so I'd have gained 40k, so if I had known before that it'd have taken me so long and I had found it on BMAH I should've taken it, but regardless, the satisfaction when it finally drops after 177 tries is awesome!
I am usually unlucky with mounts, but fishing in garrison pond I just fished this up! I am still in shock!
As of today, I'm over 200 Cavedweller kills, and haven't seen the epic Riding Turtle. I got the sea turtle (the blue quality one) from a pool back in Cataclysm, and have not seen that mount either. Does anyone know if you can receive the Sea Turtle even if you have already learned it? If not that would be really nice... Don't want to have a heart attack when a turtle mount pops up and it's the one I already have....
Edit: Also, I've tried the "Catch one, and don't use it until you have 5 because you'll get them quicker!" method, and so far, it doesn't seem like there's that much difference in the drop rate. One day I'll use this method, and have no luck getting them any faster, and the next day i'll toss them back as I get them, and end up getting them faster than I did the day before using the catch-5 method.
Dropped today on my 67th Cavedweller kill.
Tried waiting for 5 minnows but I'm pretty impatient. Would kill three at a time and looted after each kill.
Drop rate does seem higher lately though.
I killed 411
This farm sucked balls. My farm percentage was 0.2433%.
Of those 411, I've also gotten 6
I got lucky with this one. I was planning to stay on my garrison for weeks but I got mine on my third day after 22 Cavedweller kills. Drop rate for my minnows was 3.4%.
Good luck everyone!
At around 340 tries my Frostdeep Minnow catchrate went down significantly...
Currently at 391 attempts (+-30 because I started to use rarity later on). Got the other turtle at around 150 tries or sth like that.
EDIT: 340 and before it took like +- 20 minutes to get 5 minnows. Usually less. At the moment it takes about 40 to 60 minutes...
EDIT2: Around 485 +-50 tries... Had an error with my UI and had to guess the amount of tries. So I started again from 391 :) I hope they haven't removed him from the drop table. But how to find out...
EDIT3: Haha, after raid, 2nd try. So I got it at around 487 +-50 Minnows!
just started on this at 14 attempts hope it wont take forever as im unlucky with mounts but hoping for the bes ive had 13 lunarfall minnow in 2 hours which puts my catch rate at 3.2% sof ar will update later
Got the Riding Turtle on my 8th attempt.
FINALLY got this after 697 Lunarfall Cavedwellers. The bright side...... made a ton of gold (Sleeper Sushi sells for 26g/e on my server), well over 300,000g while farming this mount.
Currently 380 Minnows and still no Riding turtle on sight :(
Not losing hope, doing this until I'll get the turtle and I'll update this post until I do.
Day 4: 465 still no turtle in sight.. common RNG..
Day 5: 510 turtle still refuses to show its head.
Day 6: 546 minnows starting to drop less starting to lose hope :(
Day 7: 575 minnows and finally the little rascal is mine! ALL MINE! and stay in my bags you hear me? STAY!
Beware! I had my garrison listed for hoppers while fishing and loot on personal but when my riding turtle dropped it let everyone in the group roll on it! 2 other people needed on the item and I would have raged but I won it, so whew!
Don't list in group finder if going for mounts.
Can you get it from applying Tuskarr Fishing Net to a ship?
I got mine tonight on the 119th kill of cavedwellers
I had killed about 30 or so before i installed fishing buddy addon, but i fished up 2268 fish in my garrison (after installing fishing buddy) before i got mine. the % for frostdeep minnows was 4%
While trying to get the turtle i aso got 36 of the nat coins, so thats a start=)
I had the sea turtle from before, i never saw it drop while i fished for the riding turtle.
I was so shocked I got this on my 8th cavedweller and I had no idea it can drop... I was just fishing while watching TV and wanted get an extra Nat Pagle coins without flying around Draenor.
Just had this drop today after about the 40th lunarfall carp.
Obtained mine today after 170 tries, was very exciting, I would recommend the method of catching 5 at a time and then mass looting as this seems to make the grind a little more manageable, use whatever items you have at your disposal (ephemeral fishing pole, tentacled hat and worm supreme) and fishing buddy helps a lot, especially having cast macros to your right mouse button. Either way well worth the grind and very nice mount, glad they have added a tag mount that doesn't cost gold or money into the game. Happy hunting :)
Got the turtle after 280 minnows!
2 Riding turtles dropped on me before 100 carps.
I was pretty shocked doe, don't stop farming it guys! It is there waiting to get ridden.
GL with farming!
I was fishing for the first time in my garrison and on my 13th cast I received my first
Think you have rotten luck, I bet I have it beat, told a guild mate about this mount he got it with less than 30 minnows I'm currently sitting at 432 and counting, most mind numbing grind ever, RNG and Blizz truly hate me! Will update if I EVER get this fricken thing.
I got my after 13 Lunarfall Carp kills in my level 3 Garrison Fishing Shack with Nat Pagle assigned to it. I got lucky, keep at it- it will drop eventually! RNGsus will eventually bless you without having to resort to buying the TCG item!
Link for SS:
1700 Frostdeep Cavedweller no riding turtle yet.. OMG got it after I posted this post. 1704 kills!
1439 kills, still no luck. FeelsBadMan with a gun
kill and at long last had the
drop on my 435th kill. This was by far the most tedious of all grinds I've ever done but in the end it was worth it.
DO NOT GIVE UP! It only takes one little
and that one could always be the next one you catch :)
I just looted this badboy in my Garrison after 32 attempts. Only 3 attemps after I looted the Sea Turtle :D
Just got today 3rd lvl Fishing shack. I thought to myself - Maybe I will try to get today max 2/3 Frostdeep Cavedweller and see what loot he will drop. Guess what dropped at the second kill:
I was just messing around, trying to cap my Paladin's fishing. Got a frostdeep minnow, threw it back, fought the murloc and OH MY GOD my jaw hit the floor.
Thanks, RNG gods!
and I can't say how glad I am to be done with this.
Mount farming has been testing at times; thankfully been running 11-16 characters through each week for the past few months. Appreciate the comments here about how long it took to obtain them, as it let me know I wasn't alone. So here are my stats according to Rarity (there probably an additional 20-40 kills on each before I started using the addon):
Drake of the South Wind (mostly 10m): 437 kills
Smoldering Egg (Rag, 10m): 303
Vitreous Stone Drake: 252
Swift Zulian Tiger: 102
Fiery Warhorse: 93
Mimiron's Head: 82
Ashes of Alar: 38
Jade Direhorn (1in20): 49
Riding Turtle (1in200): 124
Spineclaw Crab (1in60): 180
I'm currently at 210 kills, got the sea turtle at about 28 kills. The loot table says it has a chance to drop Awesomefish/Grieferfish yet I haven't seen either drop.
ive accumulated around 60 Nats Lucky coins. I'd highly recommend this grind for people that don't have any of the Sea Turtle, Riding Turtle and Crimson Water Strider.
I was in a group and I threw my Minnow in the water hesitant but willing as I looted the murloc I had a heart attack the moment I saw my Riding Turtle 100 rolled needed by someone else ( Was in a fishing group but still D: ) 100%? really?
Don't give up! I got extremely lucky and got mine after just ten kills, but I've been after the Sea Turtle since Wrath. You never know which kill might drop it so don't get discouraged! Good luck to everyone trying to get this cute fella!
Just got mine today after 637 carps!
Just writing here, to confirm, as of 20th July 2016 /prepatch legion 7.0.3 this mount is still dropping in Garrison. Got it just now on EU-Twisting Nether after 150 tries :)
As of 07/22/2016 the new personal loot changes allow a 40-Man group to share all loot from each
. This effectively increases the drop rate by 40 times. I personally got both
within one hour of fishing in garrison, while in a 40 man group. While you do NOT need the achievement
to loot these mounts, you do need it to fish up
, which is what summons
which in turn is what drops the mounts. It is also worth mentioning that these mounts can be traded to other raid members for two hours.
Flawless tactic. Dropped this mount in 40m party in 3 hours of farming. We dropped ~50 epic mounts. Hurry before hotfix :P
Got 2 drops within 10 min.
Dunno why but suddenly every time cavedweller died, the drop was automatically sent to my mailbox. So the first one I get was sent to my mailbox, but I kept on fishing and didn't check my mailbox. Then several min later I saw a new cavedweller dying, and this time I got nothing sent to my mailbox, so I looted him and recieved another riding turtle, as I hadn't even checked my mailbox earlier, I was sure that it was just a bug and that the turtle wasn't sent to my malbox and that it had been dropped by a cavedweller earlier but I hadn't looted it. Then afterwards I checked my mailbox and saw a second riding turtle.
Since Legion pre-patch, you can now get this and
(Horde version) or
(Alliance version) with an increase chance of droping since it's personal now. Just form a garrison fishing group and keep fishing until any of this mobs are spawned and go kill them. Anyone has a chance of geting this 2 mounts. I got both of them in 20min :)
I know this is incredibly lucky but I got it on my second kill, aim for a group with at least 40 people and it will be quick work!
I love to see so many people getting involved in fishing :)
today after 2 hours fishing in a 40m raid in Garrison. Piece of advice, leave some trash loot on some of the murlocs that day near you so you don't have to move around because of DK's using death grip all over the place.
This mount is not to be confused with the Sea Turtle mount. It DOES NOT swim faster in water. In fact on land or in water it's only base speed, no faster than if you were walking/swimming on foot.
The new personal loot changes allow a 40-Man group to share all loot from each Frostdeep Cavedweller. If like me you hate looting them one by one then use a
It makes it easier to AFK as it automatically targets the mob.
I have finally obtained this mount like 3 days ago! I have already caught a lot of Lunar Carps myself in the past, but I had only got the Sea turtle so far. So a couple of days ago I tried a '' 40-man Fishing party'' in the group finder and after an hour or 2, I saw this mount dropping for me! This mount is a personal drop so once it drops it's yours! Also very recommendable to people that still need Nat pagle's lucky coins or bait. You will catch many of them
TIP: Not a lot of people think about it, but if you have a
then you can use that toy to loot all of the bodies fast and easy! And as of 5.2 this item no longer requires a target, so you can just literally abuse that toy! (only 3 seconds cd).
This is still working and working well. We had a two hour session averaging 20-40 people.
I personally got the riding turtle at about 1 hr and the sea turtle at about 1 hour 50 minutes.
In total we probably have 12-15 turtle drops, countless compasses, one pet and a million fish.
I also got about 50 Nat's coins and 500 primals.
If you still need the mounts - get into a group now before they close up this avenue of getting it.
Okay so before I realized LFG 40 man raids for this were a thing, I solo fished for about 8 hours or so. Nothing. Logged in after a horribad day at work, and some craziness IRL and joined a LFG group, I ported into the leaders garrison, saw the loot scrolling across the screen and ran up. I happened to have been zoned in at the right time and had loot. Looted, turtle! BAM! I flipped out a little. Okay, a lot! Good end to a crappy day.
This is what I got over the 8 hours of solo fishing and the few moments I was in that raid group.

ONE BEAUTIFUL AND WONDERFUL RIDING TURTLE. <3
Happy fishing! the raid group is the way to go for sure!
This is how i got it in under an hour
Seems they nerfed the drop rate pretty hefty from the Cavedwellers. Going from 2% to 0.2%
***UPDATE: As of the hotfixes from November 8, 2016, underwater mounts have been buffed from 108% speed to 135% speed***
This mount is a land OR water mount, but on land it is quite slow. Its redeeming quality is that it increases your speed in water! Below is a speed comparison for your convenience:
Change in Speed1
Standard Swim Speed
Running Speed (Land)

This mount did drop from fishing in my garrison yesterday. I fished
, and then killed the NPC and got the mount. I didn't know this was a rare mount, now I'm happy.
get more than one. Luckily, if you're fishing with a friend, they can loot it instead of you. (thanks to my pal who helped me out by sharing their luck!)
In case anyone was wondering if you are fishing in a group at your garrison and the mount drops, you will have to roll for it. That wasn't the case back in WoD. Its sad for 2 reasons. 1 If you didn't get it back then the grind is 30-40 times higher. 2 They removed a social aspect from fishing that made people group together. Now its more profitable to do it solo since you will also get more coins this way
101 Lunarfall Carp and counting. :( Only Mr. Acree's awesome music makes it bearable.
The drop rate to get the Lunarfall Carp is about 5% at 1200 Fishing (800 + hat, pole, and bait from the Lunarfall Carp drops).
EDIT: Final amount of Lunarfall Carp before I got the mount was 144.
does this still drop currently?
Got the turtle after 80 trys in WoD
Got it today after 147 tries, in a group of 7 people
-loot was set to personal
-i did not loot it myself, a roll window popped up when someone else looted
-i was the only one who could roll for it
-it is tradeable in the raid
Was leading a fishing raid today in garrison and the mount dropped after 153 tries in this group.
- EVERYONE got to roll for it
- We were 12 people in raid
- Loot was set to personal
- Loot threshold was Uncommon
- I did not loot the corpse, roll came up when someone else looted corpse
Another comment from 7.3.5 said he/she got to roll for it alone in raid group. This was not the case for us. Seems strange that the rules would be different for two seperate raids.
Obtained this cutie June 7th, after 594
. Happy Fishing!
Wanted to confirm the raid farming method is still working!
Me and my guild mate joined a group tonight and we got both turtles in an hour and a half or so.
About 57 attempts it was!
Just make sure everyone has the achievement so no one is leeching.
Fishing in garrison in a raid, is now back to personal loot. This means that for every dweller summoned, each player looting has their own personal 1/200 chance to get mount. There is no rolling for the loot.
If you last tried this mid-late Legion and didn't see the point, try it again. In an hour of fishing with ~25 players today, I saw about 7 mounts looted. I also picked up about 30 Nat's Lucky Coin in this time.
I'm not sure if they increased the drop chance or I just got insanely lucky but got it today on
11th kill from the Frostdeep Cavedweller!
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 was solo, and not in a raid group
Received both turtle mounts today in a garrison fishing raid. There were about 15 of us in the group, and I got both within an hour. I saw 2 other mounts drop.
It took 150 Lunarfall Carp over the space of a few weeks before the Riding Turtle dropped in my Level 3 Garrison Fishing Shack. I have 100 Draenor Fishing skill plus another 15 with lure and helm. Good luck, Happy Fishing!
Looted after 376 kills.
Still obtainable by Garrison fishing in 9.1.5.
I got both turtles (
) in under one hour.
I was in raid of 20 people and we had spawned on average two
During that time, I collected 39
which can be sold for a nice money.
So don't waste your time fishing around the world and go to your WoD home, because this is the place you are looking for to catch these beautiful mounts.
I saw dropped another one
, so it seems that the drop rate is truly around 0,3%.
out of Garrison Fishing. I fished for 3 days straight, at first I started solo and killed around 106 carps the first day (6 hours of fishing). The 2nd day a friend joined and I got my
with him after some fishing. (9 hours of fishing) On third day I organised a full group of 7 people fishing and actually got my
too after a while! (7 hour of fishing) .
So 22 hours of fishing in total for me.
Overall 4980 Fish caught, which were 244
self-found. But probably add another 100 which I killed with a group so around 350 in total before getting both turtles.
