Minipets and Mounts
Companions and mounts found by fishing - including the Magical Crawdad, 'Bucket Pets', and Sea Turtle. Minipets are not only loyal companions - most can be battled against other pets. Mounts can be ridden. On this page:
Bucket Pets - Chuck's Bucket, Muckbreath's Bucket, Snarly's Bucket, Toothy's Bucket
There are four different "bucket" pets. These pets can only be gained by completing the daily quest, Crocolisks in the City.
Giant Sewer Rat
Keen Dalaran anglers will notice that rats keep falling into the water of the Underbelly, and that something is eating the fish. That something is a Giant Sewer Rat! For full details, read Dalaran Fishing.
The Giant Sewer Rat performs adequately in battle, but not much better than a wide range of other rats - many of which are easier to obtain.
Mr. Pinchy is a very rare catch from fishing Highland Mixed School, found in Terokkar Forest's elevated lakes. Pinchy will grant the angler three wishes (one every four hours), before dying. There is a chance of gaining a Magical Crawdad pet, a rare minipet pet (illustrated right). For more a detailed guide to catching Mr. Pinchy, see Catching Mr. Pinchy.
The Magical Crawdad is highly rated in battle, with an interesting mix of healing, damage prevention and high attack abilities.
The Sea Pony cannot be mounted - not even by a gnome!
In battle, the Sea Pony has a moderately strong mix of Aquatic abilities, many shared with a range of other Aquatic battle pets.
A very rare Sea Turtle can be caught from Northrend, Cataclysm-level and Pandaria pools. This turtle can be mounted, and ridden. Over water the Sea Turtle gives a 60% increase in speed. It runs at normal speed on land. For detailed catch strategies, read Catching the Sea Turtle Mount.
The Strand Crawler performs reasonably in battle, but no better than most other Aquatic crabs - most of which are easier to obtain.
Tiny Carp - Tiny Blue Carp, Tiny Green Carp, Tiny Red Carp, Tiny White Carp
Typically one of the 4 Tiny Carp is possible to catch from any one pool or area of open water in Pandaria. However there are quirks, which are discussed in the guide to Catching Tiny Carp.
All four Carp perform adequately in battle. Some have sets of abilities that are unique among Aquatic pets, so can be powerful against specific enemies.
A distinctly average Aquatic pet in battle, the Tiny Goldfish offers nothing unusual.
The only Water Strider known to be possible to gain is the Azure Water Strider, which is sold to Exalted Anglers.
Several rafts are also available, including the Anglers Fishing Raft. These are not classified as mounts: Rafts provide buffs similar to water-walking. Unlike mounts, rafts can be fished from. For more detail, see Anglers Fishing Raft.
