New rare for
in 2016. Drops the toy
Spawns just in front of Booty Bay, where the boat passes. (approx 37, 67).
Respawn time appears to be around 30 minutes. With the large groups killing him, he dies in under 30 seconds so be ready.
Toy is not 100% drop rate. I just parked a character there and relogged 20 mins after the last kill to be safe, then went about doing other things on another character.
This was hotfixed, Toy is now 100% drop rate.
is likely a reference to the businessman
, famously known from the tv show "
Spawn coords: 37 67 The Cape of Stranglethorn
Drop chance is around 33%
Be careful, he stacks Blood Rage, every stack gives him a 10% increases damage.
He's got boss health so he gets up to 10 stacks and starts being a little hard on you even if you're tank.
If you're alone this might be tricky.

It's just in front of Booty Bay, between the dock and the small island with the giant and the half destroyed statue.
drops: and ... I got the toy on my first kill :D
Spawn time is about half an hour - first killed him at 11:09 GMT on Moonglade-EU, then camped around until he spawned again at 11:39. Once you get a kill, you might as well take a hike around and hunt for Bloodsail Wreckages for the Scavenger fishing achievement, or run Zul'Gurub for the mounts.
The shark scales with your level! I've killed him as a level 102 warlock, and it was level 102 aswell.
Seems to be a tad bit
30 minute respawn time - anywhere from 20-30 minutes as I can see.
The corpse seem to stay there until he spawns again - or at least for a long time. The corpse also seem to switch in size and model after a while - from a giant shark right after the kill to a lump of flesh-model after around 15 or so minutes (screenshot submitted, not approved yet however) and in the end a tiny skeleton-model.
All models of the corpse also seem to appear randomly - I've seen several of them alone and at the same time. Perhaps due to phasing.
Don't be alarmed if his corpse is there, that does *NOT* mean he was just killed. Ask in General-chat to see if people have last known kill (be wary of trolls - or gnomes!).
Quickly tag him as he dies fast due to high amount of people camping. Not a guaranteed drop for the toy, 3 kills with 0 toy for me so far.
**Protip: Turn down graphics to minimum if you got a slow computer... LOTS of spells and TONS of people = insane lag for some.
Even more people camping him now, seems like server broke! Even though I have a brand new gaming rig
I couldn't cast a single spell due to server latency, but was able to loot him as I was in a group
.. So; join a group just to be sure "you" have tagged him, especially if you have a slow PC which causes FPS lag.
If you don't have any kind of coords addon, do not fret.
This shark spawns in the water inside Booty Bay, alongside the quest shark mobs. It has around 20-30minute respawn timer.
Currently camped it for 3 and a half hours,that 33% drop chance is sketchy to be honest,or my luck is terrible.While I like gathering toys,i find this year's Pirate event very poorly thought out to be honest.
Edit : 10th kill and respawn timer just went up also,don't know if it's accurate ,I don't want to be misleading but it seems for my last 3 kills it spawned at 35-45 minute interval so I'm guessing the spawn timer might be from 30-45 minutes.
Item is tradable between people who tagged same boss. I could trade the second toy i obtained to someone from another realm, without being with him in party/raid.
So if you are unlucky, get few friends with you and try together. I hope this helps! Enjoy!
Anyone know if the rare is available in the Phased Booty Bay state?
FYI the Phased Booty Bay state is when you are going through all of the Booty Bay quests but the last one because farming rep is much easier.
***Edit***: Can confirm, could not see him while phased.
He keeps spawning dead. npc scan doesnt even go off. just appears dead
Book is tradeable to party members. Got mine first and ran a couple more with my brother. Server hopping helps also.
The moment Ol' Eary spawns,
Dread Captain DeMeza
yells: "Yarrrrr! Thar be Ol' Eary, terror of the open seas! Now's our chance boys, git 'em!"
I'm not sure how far the yell reaches but it gave me a clear warning while standing pretty much on top of his spawn.
No soundfile, just a yell, but keep an eye out - it's a nice warning.
Edit: this also helps to time the kill when you've enabled timestamps. Makes it easier to figure out when to be back (again).
As a L78, I could take it, but I only got a tooth (and not even useful for the quest). Anyone know if one must be L100+ or something to get the loot? Pointless lurking on this toon if I can't get it.
ETA: Looted it on 4th spawn, 2nd or 3rd kill (not sure how many I actually tagged, and I couldn't find one corpse). It was showing as an L78+ elite, and I got the book. Looks like it scales, but with as many people as are around, it wouldn't matter.
Leaving the shark teeth till 3am or so.
Spawns every 30 minutes so far on my server.
Here's a WeakAura that will alert you when Ol' Eary spawns by playing an airhorn and having large red text flashing and bouncing on your screen.
Toy is not a guaranteed drop, sadly. Killed him at 6:20pm eastern time (5:20pm server). No loot at all. Just crappy gray tooth. :(
> Took me roughly 7 kills to get the book (making it ~14% drop rate in my case)
> Every time the mob respawned 20-30 minutes later, 25 on average.
> If a corpse dissapears shortly after being killed, that means a Death Knight used a corpse explosion on it. Just zoom the camera in and look for a "floating ribcage".
> If you're bored, feeling like a %^&*, and have access to Swapblaster, then wait for the booty bay ship transport to arrive, climb on it, then just as it's about to leave swap some random AFK person from your raid on the ship. Evil, but fun.
Doesn't get faction tagged. No need to start unnecessary world pvp - save that for the Gurubashi Arena up north; let the Horde / Alliance players get their shot at the toy as the event doesn't last long!
Great, because this is how I want to spend an evening. Thanks, Blizzard, for making a fairly low drop-chance toy that drops from a 30-minute respawn mob that spawns one day out of the year. I might check back once or twice more, but I'll probably pass on this.
Update on this mob from Blizz on Twitter
at 4:07PM PST:
Additionally, we’re working on
increasing the spawn and drop rates
of creatures and items related to Pirate’s Day quests.
A bit late for EU, I imagine, but better late than never... I guess?
Just got the toy on the first kill. A LOT of others seemed to as well so I think they've changed the drop rate.
It has been hotfixed to drop 100% now. Still 30 min respawn timer as far as I am aware.
For people mentioning seeing the sparkle and not being able to loot it: be patient. I had a grey bag icon flickering off and on over the shark, but once the rest of the group looted him and moved away it stayed solid grey. After about thirty more seconds (after the rest of the group was gone), I was able to loot him just fine. It might have been something with how many people were trying to loot it at once.
Hotfixed to 100% droprate!
What piece of !@#$ developer thought this was ok for a 1 day event?
Bind it to a key. Press it a lot.
Phase 3: Profit!
His body will disappear and turn into a pile of bones and meat which you can loot from.
This hotfix is now live. More sharks should be spawning, quest items should now be shared, and
Ol'Eary should always drop the toy
Additionally, we’re working on increasing the spawn and drop rates of creatures and items related to Pirate’s Day quests.
How the hell did I miss that it was Pirates Day yesterday?
So pissed... am a big collector of pets/toys etc and I missed it.
Wish they would have made this like Moonfang to kill. My computer is on low settings and this mod spawned already dead for me. I did not even get a change to auto attack it or even cast my instant spell. Would have been nice if they made it like the Moonfang spawn and kill time. Even that takes a good couple minuets to kill. This it was like killing a lv40 mod with 50 lv110. Most of the people there complained they did not even see it alive to attack it. I was talking to one person who said this was the third time it happened to him.
Not responsible for shark-induced nightmares including dreams featuring sharks in bathtubs, swimming pools, small fountains, ponds, lakes, tornadoes, or any other location in which sharks probably aren’t but you’re sure they COULD be.
30 min myth debunked I just had a 4 minute respawn although I'm not saying this will happen every time
not respawning tonight
Shark dies within like a second after spawning, prepare yourself for a long camp.
I just had a 12minute re-spawn timer.
Talk about luck! I was in the water waiting and he spawned right on top of me! I think he tagged me before I tagged him!
Spawns at level 60 with over 600k HP. Will not die instantly so if you spot it spawning you will have more than enough time to tag it. Toy appears to be 100% drop.
im there right now lookin for him man
Anyone seeing him? He hasn't spawned on WrA at all. No shout or anything.
Spawns at 38 67
Yarrr! It be ITLAPD (International Talk Like a Pirate Day IRL) and thar best way ter celebrate be surely tha
Talk Like a Pirate
AddOn, for Retail and Wrath. Yer'll have ta walk tha plank if yer fail ter use it!
