THX for your guide. I don't want to list out fishing spots and all of that, because part of what's great about being a Fisher is the adventure of finding hidden little fishing holes spattered about Eorzea. It’s the FSH 55 levequest. Please read it again :D, Butterworm to catch eels only work DURING NIGHT TIME… otherwise you will not be able to catch anything!
I could skip most of your recommendations …just relying on one or two things every three levels. Early word is that the experience gains are massive; low-level fishers report gaining between five and 10 levels during one 20-minute trip. Yes, “Hello Marketboard” for a nice profit on my extra Marlins, and I shall return often. Reeling up a Shadowhisker is a mooch from HQ Blueclaw Shrimp.
Just wanted to say thank for this guide, I got to lvl 44 so for with little to no effort taking long breaks while following this guide. So I am currently in the 40-45 fishing range.
I would like to ask tho why its not on the gathering drop down? I’ve found all your gatherers’ guides particularly helpful.
Players need to figure SOMETHING out for themselves. medianet_width = "728"; No catch on CLEAR. This application tracks big fish, making it easy to spot hard-to-catch fish as they become available - Carbuncle Plushy of Balmung. If you happen to have Sorc Fish in your list, and you need Icepicks – go for it! IE, checking in Limsa FSH Guildmaster for quests, and making sure you’re at the end of the questline. Every catch yielded over 3500xp and HQs about 10k. I seriously think this will be updated in the near future (or is it already?). Unfortunately, a majority of the lures/baits mentioned in the 50-60 range are lvl 60, and cannot be used. The game doesn't make it easy to find fishing holes, and similarly it can be tricky to hunt down lures and bait of the appropriate level and water (or air or sand) type on your fishing travels. I’ll remind you again soon.
I’ve been grinding in Yugr’am river for a while and noticed that Black Eel with Butterworm nets 100% ALL DAY not just at night. Less Abalathian Smelts, chance for Lake Urchins (leves) too. Yugr’am river is in E.Thanalan. Til 10 am I think.
Ehhh so you’ve finally reached the icy grasp of Ishgard! You we’re probably fishing in another hole! Blueclaw Shrimp (x2) : Good, but impractical @50 (notes later on) (more info!) There are four kinds of bait available: Plump Worms, Krill, Ragworms, and Versatile Lures. CF Moondrip.
2. Yeah, it’s only value if you’re farming up Icepicks. Problem is, Mogpom cannot be fished until lvl 58, as it needs a goblin jig or steel spinner jig to be caught. However, Since you cannot equip it – use BALOON BUG in the meantime. I can’t find it in North Shroud…or anywhere really, it should be between alder springs and trespeak. Thanks to your comment, maybe I was wrong. I don’t know if it was luck or not, but when i reached level 52 i turned instant 53 with turning in the Sorcerer Fish. Even if I didn’t help you one damned bit – I appreciate your feedback. (Fanged/Chowder being the likely winner here) The OST is damn good so this tier went by really quickly for me. AHA! (sorry for my English, it’s not so good ^^). Thanks for the guide!!
» Final Fantasy XIV Online (FFXIV) » FFXIV Ocean Fishing Bonus Titles Guide. Would it actually hurt to be constructive and polite? In this guide I will explain the basics of Fishing and how to level the profession in style! it gives+50% up to 40k exp… Cool, init?
Wonderful guide! Power Level your Fisher! I will be updating this to 60 shortly, and i’m wishing to refine the pre-60 half of this after that. Your email address will not be published. Fantastic guide, would be lost without it! I wanted to let you know about the lvl 50 glacial core bait is incorrect. Bits that are marked with an asterisk are those that the tack description did not state specifically, but seem to imply. I just got back and replying to comments quickly. For grinding lvl45-50 I found the best place to be was cloud fishing in Coerthas. Says so in the quest text, actually.
Ashley spends pretty much all her time playing games, cooking, and studying languages. Unrepentant Lalafell player. A list of all the fishing tackle currently in the game, and where to obtain them. Just to clear up, the Spinner does not work for ocean fishing. When in doubt, use this quick reference to have the “most bang for buck” upgrades. Try to complete the 53 FSH quest ASAP as well. Since that covers 3 of the four leves for the tier you should be able to stock up prettty easily and compelte whichever ones pop up. Started in at 25 and went to 28 or so. Yes that’s another one, but the listed location (Yugram River) is 100% at night time! The above purchases should hold up until level 55, which is the next (And I would say “required”) gear update. You CAN pre-emptively farm 3x HQ Icepicks while you’re here.
I will be working on many of these guides come 3.0, in case new ways to level up appead. If you had BiS of the previous tier, you can not bother changing it until 55. 2/3rds of these fish are pretty much impossible to catch when you’re level 52. These can then be submitted to gain huge EXP. Moondrip is way better.
Love your guide by the way! Correction, just hit the “nothing bites” slump. If not, it’s going to be a long and painful ordeal! The only time Brute Leech was mentioned was for the L60 quest. **If you finish the FSH 53 Quest you can proceed to the “levequest fish” of the next tier, and just submit them upon hitting 54 (read onwards to see what I’m talking about), This guide is getting damn long already, and I don’t want page-load warnings so I’ll cut it here. I used the shortened location names for many reasons. This is an amazing guide! Fishing voyages leave every two Earth hours. You can reset the timer by casting your line into another fishing … medianet_height = "90";
S/he is right about Yugr’am being in Eastern Thanalan, though.
the primary one? Here’s an alternative for Boltfish…instead of using just about anything else, you can use honeyworm to catch about 3 times as many Silverfish…GREATLY increases your odds of getting an HQ quicker and mooching. Lake Urchin (x3)(x9)(Repeatable): RECOMMENDED LEVE FISH THIS TIER (more info!) Sorcerer Fish: is pretty much junk in terms of value if it happens to be your collectible upon reaching this tier. Thank you for your guide, Need to fix the lvl 25 leve quest location FSH from “East Shroud, Quarrymill” to “South Shroud, Quarrymill”, Under 45-50, the guide says “Overall I would recommend Ceruleum Field, using Honeyworm (Generic catch-all bait). OP writes a guide–If it’s not up to your personal standards, or if you don’t feel like properly reading, move the hell on.
Confirmed, just did that step! Ocean Fishing can be unlocked by anyone who has completed the level 1 quest “My First Fishing Rod.” Speak with Fhilsnoe in the Fishermen’s Guild in Limsa Lominsa to get started. White Coral and Helmet Crab are very abundant at 29,30 Western LaNoscea – The Brewer’s Beacon. However, I noticed that on the 30-35 leves, you have listed Indigo Herring twice. Info before starting Thank you so much, I know this took a whole mess of work to finish. Coerthan Crab (x3) : Bad due to sucky fishing holes (more info!) HW prior to leveling Fisher. This guide is currently a work in progress, so feel free to leave me a message in the Discussion tab at the top of the page if you have any suggestions. Thanks for the heads up! Working great for me so far. I did only a couple of levequests — I’ve also got a Culinarian and have set a personal goal of catching one HQ of everything.
Can you update the guide with an equipment guide? I’ve been meaning to refine the pre 50 part. Notes: Sucks because the holes where you catch these have an extremely high chance for Abalathian Smelt. It is not red balloon; you cant use that until lvl 53. To clarify: RED BALLOON has the highest catch-rate.. its the “best bait”, but yes balloon bug is the “Earliest bait”. Currently at level 46 and about to get more grinding on. I couldn’t find a link to it even though it’s referenced. If you allready are taking the time to make this guide, why be so lasy as to use shortened words.. Not trying to be rude, just telling you that this guide is a pain in the behind to use. Just take the aetheryte to CPP and go left~ish. Catching certain fish can also trigger the Fishers Intuition buff which allows you to catch special fish. The best catches from the boat are Spectral Fish. You will no longer be able to fish at the same spot until you reset the timer.
The guide makes no mention of Bladed Jigs. Chugging through my levels fishing, I would sometimes find myself wondering where I could get the tackle for the next level tier. I did come across one mistake, you say that Yagram river is in Western Thanalan, but it is in Eastern Thanalan. You can get them easily later on, but you CANNOT now.
I just want to throw in here that I got my mazlaya marlin at 32x 25y e. LA noscea with a rattail it’s 100% harbor herring the rest is rngesus I got mine on second cast :-D, I did exactly what Bigjon said, and I got mine on my third cast at lvl 49 :D. I also wanted to say, great guide, I’ve followed it from lvl 15 to lvl 50, and it’s really helped me out a lot. This is the most value only because the hole it comes from its quite good. I’ve been following this guide but it’s kind of blinding with all this white. What can be seen below is a list of tackle, the type of water they are used for, and how you obtain them. Everyone will come into Heavensward with varying amounts of gear. Thanks so much for the guide! Pretty sure I’ve used all of the crafting and gathering ones to level up. Just want to point out that the info for level 15 levequests is wrong. Is there a good fishing hole for grinding that is actually possible for this level range? A full boat holds 24 fishers. Keep up the good work!! Loved the guide ty for your time and effort to putting this together. Each catch awards you points depending on the size and rarity of the fish.
