Bloated/Weighted Fish : questions!

  • Enarka, May 2010

    I'm on a spree to collect all of the Bloated/Weighted fish, and I had a few questions

    Do these exist, really ?

    Bloated Oily Blackmouth
    Bloated Mightfish
    Bloated Rockscale Cod

    And if they do, where on Earth are they caught ?

  • Marlburo, June 2010

    no such things as the fish you mentioned, however bloated fish do exist and they are VERY rare. bloated catfish, bloated giant sunfish, and bloated mud snapper I have caught myself....as for the remaining 4: bloated redgill, bloated salmon, bloated smallfish, and bloated trout I have yet to catch. I'm hoping when I make a serious attempt at the weighted salmon and redgill I'll catch the bloated ones as well (thats how I got my current crop of bloated fish). That being said they are very rare, right up there with the top weighted fish so good luck!

  • Marlburo, June 2010

    Oh yeah...if you want to know where they are caught go to the "Fish" section of this website all the info is there...thanks el!

    Enarka: From memory those fish could be caught (pre-Burning Crusade), but I don't think those 3 bloated fish can be caught anymore. The items still exist, because some people collected them before they disappeared from the water. As Marlburo says, all the (non-quest) are very rare, so it is hard to be sure.

  • Enarka, June 2010

    Well, so far...

    I've caught

    Bloated Mud Snapper
    Bloated Redgill
    Bloated Catfish (opened it, trying for another at the moment)

    I simply wondered if the other were still around. The Mightfish I've never seen or heard of.

  • Enarka, June 2010

    !

    I just caught my Bloated Smallfish!

    Yarr!

  • Enarka, June 2010

    5500 casts in Sun Rock Retreat. Heaps and heaps of fish, 17-22 Pounds Catfish.

    No Bloated nor 32-Pound Catfish yet!

    I'm not stopping, however. My collection requires them!

    Also, two Darkwood Fishing Poles so far, on top of the other two I caught in the past ! Sold two of them for 450G each ._.

  • Enarka, June 2010

    Another 1000 fish. Nothing interesting, besides YET ANOTHER Darkwood Fishing Pole and eight weighted, unimportant fish.

  • Enarka, June 2010

    26 Pound =( It's über rare, but not quite what I'm looking for!

  • Enarka, June 2010

    I got my Bloated Catfish!

    HELL YEAH !

    Now to go for the Trout and the 32 Pounder!

  • el, November 2012

    Bloated Rockscale Cod is back on the 5.1 PTR, but only as a catch from the contest version of Waterlogged Wreckage pools in the Cape of Stranglethorn (and probably also Northern Stranglethorn). But be warned: Everything about these pools is buggy at the moment - they spawn too early in the day, they yield 2 fish/crates per catch, even their existence during the contest is suspect. But I'll leave the note here, just in case the bloated coastal fish are making a come-back in 5.1.

  • Enarka, December 2012

    Hey, El, have you even seen the Wreckages since 5.1? I've not seen any, only a lot of Mixed Ocean Schools!

  • el, December 2012

    Yes and no: Based on the PTR, when the server initially starts up only Mixed Ocean Schools are generated. Wreckage pools only then appear as a proportion of respawns once other pools are fished. That said, I haven't fished much since 5.1 went live, so maybe something changed?

  • Enarka, December 2012

    Never mind! After 48 Mixed Ocean Schools, I got a respawn. It's heck of a low spawn rate now!

    But I don't care. I want that Bloated Rockscale Cod!

  • el, December 2012

    Well, good luck with that... I only ever caught one during testing, and I've no idea if the change went live. Please let us know if you catch it.

  • Enarka, January 2013

    Finally scored the Bloated Rockscale Cod =) Took me about 200~ Mixed Ocean Schools to get enough Waterlogged Wreckage to respawn.

    /win!

  • el, January 2013

    Great! Thanks for the confirmation. I wonder if there are now other bloated fish lurking in other pools?

  • Enarka, January 2013

    I really don't know; the only two others I still have yet to see are the following two:

    http://www.wowhead.com/item=21243/bloated-mightfish
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=21162

    The first is said to be "unavailable to players", and the second hasn't been caught, as you mentioned, for years. I'm not sure where I would start to find either of these. I would assume maybe the Bloated Oily Blackmouth could theoretically be found in Mixed Ocean Schools if anywhere, but anecdotal evidence from my 1200~ sample size almost makes me want to say it's not the case right now. It's a very small sample size though, and it's not really worth relying on.

    I'll definitely go out to fish other types of wreckage since I have some spare time today, albeit I doubt I'll get anything. You really never know.

  • Marlburo, January 2013

    ugh....back to fishing worthless pools....these in theory should drop during the tournament as well?

  • el, January 2013

    I caught my original (PTR) Bloated Rockscale Cod during the tournament. But the chance will be lower, since 80% of all pool catches become Speckled Tastyfish during the contest.
