Every weekend I go out to Sketis and the other two lakes and mass produce over 300 Crawdads . I've been doing this for over two months. My total is getting near 2000 crawdads, and still no Mr. Pinchy. My fishing is 505, so he isn't getting away. Anyone who has caught him please add input.
[Fishing] Mr. Pinchy is the Devil!
You have to really like fishing. Or you can try to be zen about it. But working numbers will only give you statistical probabilities.
Just keep on fishing. You may have run into a bad luck streak - such things happen.
I've caught 943 Crawdads, and 2 Mr. Pinchy's, which seems to be about average.
Indeed; you are simply unlucky. WoW is rather unforgiving about very rare drops/catches. I've gone for over 1000 catches, only to get two Mr. Pinchy from the same pool. I guess the process is random, when it perhaps shouldn't be so random: Ideally the chance of catching it should increase the more you try, then there would be a better correlation between effort and result.
I have a friend who caught Mr. Pinchy and received TWO pets out of her three chances. Random drops are indeed very strange things!
This far managed to catch Mr. Pinch 4 times, pet came from 11th wish :-S
Total Crawdad catches are nearing 4000 pcs.
Crazy fisher :-D
Well, just caught my third Mr. Pinchy last night. My 7th wish was a bust, let's hope I get the pet by number nine.
I just caught Mr Pinchy last night for the first time. For what its worth, I was on my third Highland Mixed School in Lake Jorune.
I have been giving serious attention to catching this illusive crustacean ever since I was shamed into finishing maxing out my fishing skill (about the last three months for atleast an hour a day).
I find the fish finder makes fishing much more enjoyable, both in terms of fish caught (Furious Crawdads and Golden Darters (got to take care of your priests)) and fishing in the correct locations.
I have not attempted to see what luck Mr. Pinchy will bring me, the first wish will be tonight.
I will keep you advised.
Alas, by way of update - no luck on my third Mr. Pinchy. Hopefully, when I get #4… although I note that competition for the pools seems to be on the increase on my server.
Well, by way of update.....
Wish Number One - the gift box with 5 Super Healing Potions and 5 Super Mana Potions.
Wish Number Two - Furious Mr. Pinchy. He died a lonely death in Netherstorm.
Wish Number Three - The Magical Pet Carrier containing, yep, you guessed it, a Mr. Pinchy pet!!!
:-) :-) :-)
Well, my friends say that I'm Mr.Impossible Drop Rate:
in 1201 Furious Crawdads I've already got 4 Mr.Pinchy. Out of those 4 I've received so far 5 Magical Crawdads (a pity they are soulbound. would have made some gold :P)
Oh, and the 1st Magical Crawdad got it on my 1st wish from the 1st Mr.Pinchy
It's definitely random. I was sick this weekend and did nothing but fish to hit 375. Once I got there I started fishing Highland Mix....and caught Mr. P on my 4th or 5th cast. :)
No luck on my first wish, got Furious Mr. P.
I'm worse then you...
I got 2 Mr. Pinchies for now (just finished the wishes in my first one) and no pet yet. Got 2 Benevolents and 1 Flask on my first Pinchy.
I've fished around 500 Crawdads for now. Probably I'll be doing it more.
My husband was a little better: He fished more then me and got 1 Pinchy, but managed to get the Magical Crawdad on the last wish.
I caught Mr Pinchy again a few days ago. This is my second time for him. The first time I did not get the pet. So far this time:
Mr. Pinchy's Gift (Mana and Heath Potions)
Furious Mr Pinchy. Which we killed in Maiden's room in Karazhan.
One more try for the pet.
Got the Crawdad on the first wish of my second Pinchy. :)
I'm looking forward to release my pinchy today on Leotheras when he's splitting at 15%, what do you think?
I caught Mr. Pinchy yesterday!
I've been trying on and off since last September. I caught him in Lake Jo'Rune off the dock.
Used him at our guild meeting last night and got the Magical Crawdad Box. WoohoooO!!!!!!
I caught Mr Pinchy twice in 20 minutes. That happened at 9/3/2008 in the afternoon. This makes the 8th catch of Mr Pinchy. I have 5 of them in my bank because i already got the pet.
I did one day full of solid grinding (to get to 380 fishing) and then one day full of solid Highland Mixed Pool grinding, got my first Pinchy at 8:43 Pacific Standard Time on Saturday December 13, though I was terribly upset when my frist wish wasn't the pet (lol). I have to wait a whole nother day before I get to see a Crawdad Box (Hopefully)
Yeah just randomly fished from a Mixed Highland School and got him on the third cast, I just feel bad for the 2 month guy up top
