I have seen a post or two claiming the Sea Turtle mount can be caught in open waters. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
I understand the achievement states pool, but it also states Northrend and that has obviously been changed. Since they can't change achievements clientside, it will take until next patch to see if the word pool is taken out.
Also, can anyone confirm or deny the ability to fish the Sea Turtle mount up in the Pools of Fire in Mount Hyjal and Twilight Highlands?
Just trying to figure out the best ways/places to fish for this with the changes that have been made.
First up I am not sure why you are asking anyone here to deny this or that statement because it is impossible. Only Blizzard can say that in an official post. GM sadly are quite often wrong in their information.
Any occurrences in open water are almost certainly due to a bug, like at the time of the Shattering there were a few oddities. I would simply say that if you were to fish in open water in the hope of catching the Sea Turtle, GL.
I have not seen any post here of a Turtle from the pools of fire but that doesn't mean it's not possible in fact the opposite as they function as pools so logically they should.
And to bring you up to date on the Northrend only Achievement text, it is changing to reflect the reality. From the latest PTR:
