Sternfathoms Pet Journal is a new way to introduce a pet battle quest in Legion.
The item as you can see is a toy located in a treasure chest in Aszuna. Below map shows you the location, and to make it even easier, Cymre kindly created a video guide how to find it.

Using the journal in Aszuna summons a Shipwrecked Captive who offers a weekly pet battle quest that yields 4 Pet Charms when completed.
The fight itself is not very hard and can be used to level pets. Currently in the beta, as long as you do not hand in the quest, the fight can be repeated endlessly and is therefore a very good source for pet experience.
This is very likely to be fixed at some point!

The "chest" is actually a dead shipwrecked captive, down in a cave under the big rock formation, at 49.40 45.40. The book is still available as of the date I'm posting this.

Apparently he likes murlocs very much, as all you can do is visiting shallow water pools.

Like artworks in a gallery. Can admire from afar but can't touch ;)

This seems cool, if it still exists.

Does anyone know if this still exist? I went to the dead knoll and couldn't interact with anything.

It seems that nowadays most of the spam lands there. Could it be the "Journal" that triggers the bots? :P

This toy will not show up in your Toy Box in game unless you are in Azsuna!

I checked to see if I had this toy when I was in Dalaran but it didn't show up. I ran around the countryside trying to get this toy and was confused when I was unable to. When I checked my Toy Box again in Azsuna I could see I already had it! /facepalm

You can still do it repeatedly, but I assume the XP got nerfed. My lvl 9 Leveling Pet just got somewhat around 400 xp

Was the XP nerfed? It seems to award a small amount of XP

Seems that way. My level pet only got enough XP to level from 10 to 11.

so don't turn in the quest? If I do then i can't do the 1 battle a day? What does the toy do otherwise?

Up to you! If you want to repeat the quest endlessly, don't turn in the quest. If you want the quest reward, turn it in :-)
The toy only summons the NPC, nothing else.

Do you happen to have a levelling strategy for this fight?


wrote on 2016-09-14 01:32:00

Hey Zerkonia! Yeah, I do! It's a bit inconvenient I know but click on the link on the upper left side to "Shipwrecked Captive" :-)

Ah, I didn't notice that link there, thank you for pointing it out lol
