This pet was a free gift for US attendees of BlizzCon 2005. A gift card may be scratched to reveal a code allowing a single character access to this pet. However, the item that teaches the pet's summon spell may be mailed to other characters on the account. The code may be redeemed at Blizzard's promotion retrieval page. The pet may be obtained in-game from Ransin Donner in Ironforge (alliance) or Zas'Tysh in Orgrimmar (horde).

This pet is also available as a FigurePets collectible (BlizzCon 2009).

I just noticed a sudden change in the frequency of the animation on this pet today. It used to be about once every 45-60 minutes, now it seems to be more like every 20 minutes (approx of course, not regularly timed).

The cost of Murky on Ebay and other sale sites, is so high it excludes the average Joe or Jane from ever obtaining it. It seems unfair that unless you are rich enough to pay what a used car would cost for a VIRTUAL PET you never have the chance to get it. Hell, I love animals and would never pay what Murky cost for a REAL LIVE PET.

One day I'll own Murky. He's not on the top of my list. I'll need to do alot of overtime at work to buy him. My plan is to have him by Jan 2015.

When my friend got me into this game, he did so by treating me to a trip to BlizzCon 2005. So I've had Murky since Day 1 that I've played.

 

Every time I see that 3K price tag for him, I realize how lucky I was.

I believe the woman who did the original voice of Murky sued Blizzard, trying to get a piece of WoW's profits. That would certainly explain the voice change. (I kind of like the new voice, so no harm, no foul, as far as I'm concerned.)

 

 

Update: Although his name could not initially be changed, as of Sept. 25, the name change took.

I have Murky and they changed the sound he makes in 5.0.4 patch. Kinda sounds like a little kid gurgling I guess now instead of some thing aquatic gurgling. Like the old sound better. :(

To answer your question, YES you may still get Murkey on any newly created toons. My hubby and I went to blizzcon 2005 so we each got the little guy. You get an egg that you can mail to your other toons and learn him but the egg remains so you can mail it to all your toons and any newly created ones. Of course it has to stay on the same server. But it can be mailed to your horde and alli toons. It didn't used to be this way but they finally changed it so all toons on your account get him.

If you go to Ironforge the go to The Forlon Cave the guy who unlocks the card is there and right next to him is Murky if you click on him he makes noises and sometimes he dances its a great sight but its not as good as having your own Murky but hey you get to see him so its still a nice chance to see the cute little guy - Alienn

(if you got the figure pet you should be glad)

I got my Murky before BC came out as his card was one of the ways to get into beta testing. I paid very little for him compared to what he goes for now but he is still my favorite pet to this day. For those who missed out on him you can also go to the Forlorn Cavern in Ironforge and chill with the Murky there by the water. He will make the same baby murloc sounds if clicked and will eventually sing and dance Warner Bro. Frog style for you if you wait long enough =)

To future owners! I almost messed up when I was scratching the surface where the numbers are under-MAKE SURE you scratch lightly, even though its under that rubber piece, since the cards going on being 5 years old, like mine was, I scratched a little to hard and almost was unable to read the number underneath! Something about the ink getting old + the stickyness pulling the ink up.
JUST BE GENTLE <3 and gratz!

From what I have read about Murky, there were between 5500-6000 of the cards made, making him the absolute rarest pet in America. He was my holy grail of pets back in BC, and was well worth the price I had to pay for him on Ebay, being a lot cheaper than he's going for now.

I don't have Murky, but I've bought other codes off eBay and Amazon without any trouble. Check that the seller has a lot of sales and 100% positive feedback or close to that, such as a PowerSeller on eBay. Also, read the description carefully. (I would have Murky, but my husband thinks a few thousand dollars is too much for a World of Warcraft pet, go figure! ;O)

Unfortunately Murky is almost impossible to find for sale now. Be *very* wary of anyone selling a code, as it is extremely rare, and the odds of it being a scam are rather higher than average. As always... if it's too good to be true, then it probably is. Be sure to read the description carefully on ebay, and look for someone with lots of sales (e.e.g, PowerSeller) and 100% feedback or close to it.
