I just needed to stop and brag about this.
I was leveling my fishing and also going for the [Outland Gourmet] achievement, fishing in Highland Mix schools in Terokkar forest. What I was actually trying to catch was a [Huge Spotted Feltail] (incidentally this took 2 freaking hours). Imagine my surprise (and delight!) when 30 minutes in I fish up: [Mr. Pinchy]
Now, I have been wanting the crawdad pet ever since I heard about it during BC. But I never really went for it. Getting Mr. Pinchy by accident was just awesome. On the first "wish", all I got was a buff, so I was a little worried that I wouldn't get the pet out of it. The 2 day cooldown really sucks by the way.
But I logged in yesterday and what does Mr. Pinchy award me with? A [Magical Crawdad Box]! Turns out there is also an achievement associated with Mr. Pinchy, [Mr. Pinchy's Magical Crawdad Box], and it's part of the criteria for [Accompliched Angler] and the title "Salty".
Needless to say, my guildies are very jealous of my good fortune!
...Next up, the turtle mount! ;)
