Caught this while participating in the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza.
Caught this Sunday (8/18/07) in the STV Fishing Tourney in a school of Tastyfish.
this is the rarest thing to catch at the STVFE (stranglethorn vale fishing extravaganza) every sunday 2-4pm server time you can only catch it in the pools of tastyfish
Are there any other "fish weapons" in the game?
To my knowledge, this and
are the only two fish, that can be used as a weapon. And they are extremely rare, at the very best, 0.1% drop chance.
I got this yesterday during the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza, and I love it! There's nothing like beating someone in a duel, with a fish :P
I'm going to test whether enchant glows are possible with some cheap enchant, and if they are, put mongoose on it!
This item is part of the Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Competition. Which takes place every Sunday between 14:00 and 16:00 Server time.
These are the items that can be won if you are the first person to hand in 40
Arcanite Fishing Pole
Hook of the Master Angler
Once someone has won the fishing competition, you can still hand in your remaining
in Bootybay. (repeatable quest)
Here is a link to all the rare fish that can be caught during the Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Competition and their drop chance (with thanks to Zubzubs's post on the Lucky Fishing Hat), plus the rewards you get when catching one and handing them in at the
Lucky Fishing Hat
Brownell's Blue Striped Racer
Nat Pagle's Extreme Anglin' Boots
High Test Eternium Fishing Line
not sure about drop chance, 0% according to Thottbot.
--> Dual wielding Fish Power!!
The 17, 19, 22, 26, and 32 pound catfish are all equip-able, but they are all offhand, thus you cannot dual wield them alone.
Maybe I could use this or the Steelscale Crushfish to chop down the mightiest tree in the forest instead of that stupid herring the knight gave me.........
Does anyone else think it's intriguing that you can Disenchant a fish?
Who enchanted the fish in the first place?
Imagine seeing that in real life... Your out fishing, enjoying a nice Sunday afternoon, you see someone else fishing nearby.
This other fisherman catches a medium sized fish, gets his lure out from it's mouth, this person then begins some kind of strange ritual over the fish, hands glowing blue... then *Poof* Fish is reduced to a small glowing fragment.
Fisherman places strange object into his bag and continues fishing as if nothing happened, perhaps occasionaly exclaiming that his skill went up by 1.
All of a sudden, the Beverly Hills Ninja scene where Chris Farley is beating attackers with fishes comes to mind...
For those who are curious...
Runeforging does work on these...
I am so heading to Wintergrasp with my Deathknight...
Fish? You cant handle the fish!
Disturbing thought.. You can disenchant a fish.
If only warriors could duel wield this with a fishing pole...
Fished Rockhide Strongfish in Stranglethorn Vale during Master Angler Competition, I was fishing sth about 1h. Of course form Speckled Tastyfish school!
but how can you disenchant a fish?
In terms of disenchanting fish maces, I honestly think it would be awesome if Blizzard gave them special loot tables that award stacks of things such as shiny fish scales or bones.
Disenchant a fish?
I wonder what this would look like with Executioner...
Enchanted with mongose. very funny
I just caught it and its funny as hell i love it :) one step closer to my salty achievment
This + Dancing Rune Weapon = flying fish that pwns noobz!
Looks like this weapon cannot be used with transmogrification..
Thats extremely...considering it was the only thing i cared about transmog-ing! T_T
Fished during Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza! Just 25 catch.
Can it be mogged?
I caught this the other day on the new Darkmoon Faire isle. I was just fishing in open waters and poof, there it was!
It can now be caught in other places besides STV.
Hmm...so, would a Tank wielding a fish....be a "Fish-Tank"? :-)
I gotta million of 'em! Ha-cha-cha-cha! :-)
can not be used to transmog with :(
I would love if Blizzard had a sense of humor and let ppl transmog this, imagine a DK in purple judgement gear slapping a boss in the face with a fish!
I was just fishing in the Tastyfish pools during the STV tourney hoping to fish up the rare fish that you can turn in for the boots from the time they first appeared until when they disappeared. No luck getting any of the rare fish from the tourney. Instead, with 5min until the Tastyfish disappear, I fish up this guy. He got me my accomplished angler achievement but I was disappointed cus I saw I had gotten a green item and it got me excited and then I realized it was the wrong kind of rare fish. lol.
If you are trying to fish this guy up, do it during the STV tourney cus at least instead of sitting there hoping for him, you can get a chance of getting a rare fish from the tourney and even if you dont, you can turn in the tastyfish for some gold.
Can now be transmogged come pre-patch legion :D
This and other fish weapons especially the ones as rare as 0.01% deserve to be used for transmog rather than sitting in our banks.
Help stand to bring fish mogs into World of Warcraft by leaving a comment:
Hello fellow anglers! Since there aren't any recent comments.. I finally caught the elusive Rockhide Strongfish today! Didn't keep track of the total number of fish it took to find this guy, but it's definitely still around! You'll catch 'em in the Mixed Ocean School pools (well after the Speckled Tastyfish are gone). Caught at 5:47pm EST in The Cape of Stranglethorn (coords 52.20, 68.70). Good luck! :D
I just caught one of these in the Mixed Ocean School's.
The top 50 winners had already finished.
It was about 50 minutes, since the tournament started.
I wasn't tracking the number of casts, but this is the first fishing tournament I've done since before the Dread Pirate Ring was added.
Got him today, was farming this event for like 8 weeks in a row and I finally caught him. Definetly the hardest one to get since you can only get him 2hr per week but it was worth :)
Good luck to all of you fishing it, it will drop soon.
