Catching Tiny Carp

  • el, March 2013

    Patch 5.2 adds 4 new Tiny Carp minipets to the waters of Pandaria. Catching Tiny Carp is a detailed guide to catching these "very rare" fish.

    Due to their rarity, we are not yet sure of all possible catch locations. The Pet Journal has hints, but is also misleading: For example, the Pet Journal does not report that Tiny Blue Carp can be caught from Fish of the Day pools in Townlong Steppes. But they were on the test realm.

    If you catch a Tiny Carp, and you are sure about where you caught it, please let us know here. Especially if the location and water has not yet been confirmed. Please be sure to post the name (colour) of the Tiny Carp and the zone it was caught from, plus the area within the zone (inland, coastal, Sha-touched) for open water, or pool name for pools. If you've been counting, the number of casts before you got it. And for the super-observant, if you caught it while using an Ancient Pandaren Fishing Charm, did you catch it alone in the loot window, or alongside a regular (non-Pagle/quest) catch?

    Thanks in advance.

    can't wait to go for these!

  • Sethalaen, March 2013

    I have been working on catching these.

    I don't remember how many casts (but a decent amount) but I caught a "Tiny Blue Carp" in the open waters of the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. So I can confirm they can be caught there and do not require a pool.

    If you're compiling info about the new zones as well, I got a White one in the water off south-west Thunder Isle this evening. edit: I was fishing a pool (mantis shrimp, I believe) but I'm not sure I was actually landed in the pool, as my bobber was on the edge.

  • Ryi, March 2013

    Not my catch but my partners (First cast of the day, curse you RNG gods)
    Open water, Valley of the Four Winds by the Panda that gives you the daily swarm info.

  • Fiala, March 2013

    Hey folks! I caught a Tiny Blue Carp today! Stats look like I'm totally lucky. Using updated fishing buddy for stats. I was fishing in the Fish of the day Crowded Redbelly Mandarin Schools. So I can confirm the catch in Townlong Steppes! :) I was using the Ancient Pandaren Fishing Charm. It fell off in the middle somewhere, but it was on when I caught the carp. Carp appeared alone in lootbox.

    65 casts

    Redbelly Mandarin: 61
    Sealed Crate: 3
    Flying Tiger Gourami: 1
    Tiny Blue Carp: 1

  • Raziya, March 2013

    Hey El -

    I caught a Tiny Green Carp this evening right in front of where the rare fisherman spawns in the Vale, expecting to be there a lot longer than I was to try to kill two birds with one stone.

    I caught 29 Emporer Salmon, 57 Golden Carp, 1 Flying Tiger fish for Nat Pagle, 21 Krasarang Paddlefish, and then the carp. Just under 100 casts, not too bad. I imagine that was extremely lucky, and the blue one which I want more will be much harder.

    This was fished up in open water. :)

  • Mythstaria, March 2013

    Caught a Tiny White carp last night while fishing in a pool of Giant Mantis Shrimp off the beach on Isle of Giants. Easy catch out of the second pool I fished. I was really surprised to get it that quickly. Note: bringing a friend to fish here is probably wise since all mobs are 90+ elites. My husband and I were farming for the Dinomancer Book and the pets. Also had all of those drop off the Dinomancer mobs. A good night!

    Caught my Tiny Red Carp.
    Townlong Steppes, the poor near Niauzo Temple.

  • Lamore, March 2013

    Got ridiculously lucky and caught the Tiny Green Carp in Krasarang Wilds, while fishing in a Krasarang Paddlefish pool (Inland). Was using the Ancient Pandaren Fishing Charm. Only took five or six casts. Was the second pool I tried in that area.

  • Jimi, March 2013

    Big fan of the site, figured I should contribute a little for all the help I've received. Both carp were caught during the fish of the day events, with the fishing charm equipped.

    Green Carp 6 March
    Krasari Falls
    Large Swarm of Panicked Paddlefish
    53 casts
    Caught alongside a Krasarang Paddlefish

    White Carp 9 March
    Shado-Pan Monastary
    Tiger Gourami Slush
    Approx 150 casts
    Caught along side two Tiger Gourami
    (Gave Salty El a high five while I was there)

    Hope this is useful!

    Tiny White Carp
    Mantis Shrimp Swarm pool
    coastal Jade Forest
    ~20 casts

    Used an Ancient Pandaren Fishing Charm. Did not count the number of casts, but recorded all my catches:

    16 Giant Mantis Shrimp
    7 Reef Octopus
    1 Mimic Octopus
    1 Tiny White Carp

    There were three items in the loot window when I caught it: Giant Mantis Shrimp, Mimic Octopus, and Tiny White Carp.

  • anjani, March 2013

    I got the blue one in one cast, no fishing pool just in Vale of Eternal Blossoms in the lake outside Shrine of the Seven Stars.

    Not having any such luck when trying to fish up the other ones.

  • mikado, March 2013

    Caught the tiny green carp, in the river in Vot4W, right by where Galleon spawns. Was sitting there bored, decided to level fishing on my hunter. Hit 375 fishing, went and trained, arrived back in the same spot, caught it within 3-4 casts. Overall, 19 casts on this character, but on other characters in the same spot probably closer to 200 casts. It appeared in the lootbox alongside Golden Carp. Thinking I got pretty lucky with this one.

  • Galva, March 2013

    I caught the Green one in Valley right in front of Galleon in valley of 4 winds. I also caught the blue one in day of the fish thing in Vale of Eternal Blossoms right in front of shrine of the seven. Right now I am trying for the white one ......very little luck.......Also did not have my pole equiped......and neither were from pools.

  • Galva, March 2013

    Oh yea the green and blue one was 2-3 cast I got them......white one I think I am up in the thousands...........any advice would be very gratful.

  • picho, March 2013

    Just got my Tiny Blue Carp in the lake on the Townlong Steppes island where Niuzao Temple is. It is currently where the daily fish migration is and I was fishing in those pools (trying to get my turtle). Gluck to those trying for it!!

    Hi Everyone,
