Earlier this evening Perculia dropped a bombshell on Twitter.
Previously, you could only get this pet from a Taiwanese iCoke Promotion, however as of this patch (6.2.2) the Pet Journal source was updated to a drop from an egg. Additionally, a White Murloc Egg was added to the game, but there was no indication where it would come from and if players could collect this pet. Well now we know!
Some incredibly lucky or in-the-know player (or both!) discovered where we can find Terky.
Off the southern coast of Borean Tundra, Northrend, there's a cave in the water on the coast of Riplash Ruins. For those using a coordinates addon, the entrance is located at 55,88, and here's a Wowhead map for everyone else.
The cave isn't very obvious, but it's also not completely hidden. If you see a giant white pillar and some seaweed, you're in the right spot. See image above.
Following the passage from the cave entrance, you'll enter into a cavern and you'll more than likely be greeted with a TON OF PLAYERS. At least, I was. I'm sure that in a week or two, the traffic in this tiny cave won't be as bad. So if navigating through giant bodies and purposefully placed toys/obstacles isn't your thing, wait a bit until the excitement dies down.
Unfortunately, because Northrend isn't really "the go to" place anymore, it's more than likely that the entire zone will be joined with other realms. This makes realm-hopping in hopes to find a clear cave near impossible. Trust me, I tried lol. Some joint realms are better than others, but you also run the risk of joining a realm with PVP enabled (even if you specify PVE).
In any case, what you're looking for is a small pile of rocks near a red seashell on the ground. Hovering over it should reveal
Loot the egg and hooray, you've got yourself a traditional (white) murloc pet! It took me many tries since there were so many others that wanted this pet too. Patience and determination helped me not throw my monitor out the window haha. *nods*
I'm so happy to finally have an original baby murloc of my own. Very grateful to the developers for adding this pet in-game, and relieved I don't have to spend thousands of dollars or gold to collect it. I don't know if this was something they had planned from the start, but regardless, it's an awesome addition that will make so many pet collectors ecstatic.
I love discoveries like this, but I'm really curious as to how someone found such an obscure treasure. It's amazing!
I can't express how excited and elated I am to collect Terky. Or how in awe I am of the developers for listening to our pleas for a re-release of one of the traditional baby murlocs, and then actually taking action by releasing it in-game. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
