This quest can take a very long time. Took me 108 casts and 17 filleted Royal Monkfish for the Locket to drop.
Many people are reporting that these fish appear to be unique even if it's not stated on the item anywhere. True or not, for now it's probably just best to gut them as you get them, even if hoarding them is tempting.
crap quest. drop ratio suckz!
Blizz needs to fix this, it took me 50 casts to catch 16 fish before I opened one with the locket
20 of these so far, no locket. It definitely needs to be fixed...
got it on my 23rd Monkfish.
lets see who gets it in the most amounts of monkfish possible. My record I just set is 30 fish before I got the locket. That is far to much really need to up that drop rate.
Heaven forbid, that you guys get the drop in the first 5 fish. Quit whining and enjoy the game! It's not like it take forever to fish. You can fish up 3-4 in approximately a minute. If you guys don't want to spend time actually doing a quest, like a game should do, than DON'T DO IT!
I fished 25 monk fish than i get it its borring !
typo in the tooltip
This only took me about 7 Monkfish and 25-30 casts.
It took me 75 casts tonight to get the quest item.
A bit too long IMO!
I got it in the first Monkfish on the fourth cast
I just did the daily and got my Item on the 10th cast, was my 4th Royal Monkfish. So, i guess is fixed....
or maybe lucky ^^
Coming soon to the BBC, a brand new drama series. John Actor is tough, uncompromising King in... Royal Monkfish!
I can't believe no one has asked what this "Monfkish" is and where you get one... Clearly it is filetable with the Monkfish, but why would you do that?
i believe that every time u click the monkfish to fillet it(even if it didnt open, or "your inventory is full"), the drop changes. that makes it impossible to loot the locket if u have 1 inventory space or so. after 78 casts and 23 monkfish catches, i emptied some more inventory space and it dropped first fish.
got it on my 1st monkfish on my 5th cast
I got lucky my first time but in general It takes a while to get.
I find fishing them and opening them as you go better personally.
To fish them up, you have to have at least a skill of 40 Fishing.
Here are the possible drops when the Royal Monkfish is filleted, I've only ever seen these two drop.
(If there are any others, please add to the list):
Set of Rusty Keys
And most obviously, as it is the desired loot:
Got it on first Monkfish, at ninth cast (after getting to skill 40 ;) )
i got it first cast 399skill
haha on my alt it only took me 3 casts and 1 to get the locket.
blizzard have indeed fixed drop; 2 throws, one fish, one necklace and one slimy ring
well i dont believe in that after 55 monkfish i finally got mine
29 casts to pick up the Monkfish, 1 filet to retrieve locket. Despite my relative luck compared to everyone else here I will never do this quest again.
lol first cast and i got my locket Fish skill 97 xD
Fished 5 Royal Monkfish and every time when i fillet it i got
Accepted quest at fishing level one, was able to obtain my first
at Skill Level 32. No boosters used.
Only took me 7 casts t get a royal monkfish and that first one had the locket.
