This is my little bit guide for fishing in FFXIV:ARR. It is incomplete, however I will certainly include more as I learn even more. It"s not the biggest, yet I think it"s an excellent start. I am open to any kind of inquiries or feedearlier.First I"ll begin of by going over the skills and also traits. Most of them are pretty self-explanatory, so I will not go into details on those. I"ll mostly share the not-so-obvious details of the skills and also traits.

You are watching: You can sense something swimming below, but are uncertain where.

Skills:Bait - Bait up that hookCast - Cast your lineHook - (Tbelow is an audio and video cue as soon as you have a bite)Stealth (lvl8) - Allows you to sneak previous enemies that would aggro. Tright here is a level limit on this that will certainly be enhanced as you level up (check out Traits below). It will also substantially decrease your motion rate (you will walk really slowly). However before, you can usage Sprint to walk a little much faster while in Stealth.Mooch (lvl25) - You should catch an HQ version of a fish in order to use it to mooch. Not all fish are able to be used to mooch. Also, mooching is just prefer any type of various other cast in that you"re not guaranteed to capture a fish. Often the last fish in your log for a space will be caught via mooch. If tbelow is one more fish in the log after the mooch catch, then I think it requires double mooching (lvl40). Double mooching calls for you to capture an HQ fish on your mooch cast. (ex. Catch a HQ Moat Carp, mooch it to capture a HQ Big Shark, then mooch that to capture Super Shark. Just an instance I consisted of. To my expertise, “Big Shark” and also “Super Shark” are not fish in this game).Dunefishing (lvl35) - Fish in dunes. This does not suppose that you have the right to just go cast your line right into the middle of the desert. Tright here are still fishing holes. It"s difficult to define, so below is what it will certainly look choose.

Skyfishing (lvl45) - Fish in the clouds. (pic coming soon)Traits:Enhanced Stealth - Three various levels. Each increase the level of opponents Stealth will work on. Very vital to understand your limit. If your Stealth is excellent on opponents up to level 40, then you will certainly be attacked by anypoint 41 and over. Be cautious. I’ve obtained myself right into some sticky situations. Be prepared to run.Gulleye - Three different levels right here too. Allows you to discern the place of fishing holes as much as level XX. This one doesn’t offer a good explanation. You have the right to pretty much fish in any water, at any kind of time, other than for at the “legendary fishing holes”. If you try to fish at among these, you might acquire the message “You deserve to sense something swimming below, yet are unspecific wbelow.” That suggests that it is a legendary fishing hole, and also you need Gulleye to be able to fish tbelow. Gulleye I allows you fish in holes approximately level 15, Gulleye II is up to level 35, and Gulleye III takes it up to level 50. Note: You acquire them at the corresponding levels (15, 35, 50).Double Mooching (lvl40) - Explained above under the Mooch ability.Next off I"ll throw out some tips from my individual experience:Fisherman’s guild is in Limsa LominsaPerception is your frifinish. Perception is what enables you/rises your chance to capture HQ fish.HQ fish will certainly offer you 300% endure.Gathering is what affects your odds of reeling in the fish after a bite. If you lose the fish, then your gathering was not high enough.Lures can be used multiple times, however you CAN lose them. I’ve only lost one so much, however it is possible.Bait/lures are under the “Tools” category once buying from sellers.The level of bait corresponds via the level of fish. Example; If tright here are three fish in the hole, and also are level 5, 40, and also 50, then reduced level bait will certainly capture you even more of the level 5 fish. You deserve to still catch level 50 fish with level 5 bait, yet the level of bait should readjust your odds of catching fish around that level.Fishing levesYou deserve to revolve in HQ fish for a second 200% xp.I have additionally confirmed that through some fishing leves, the client will certainly let you offer them extra sets of fish for even more reward (without having to usage added allowances). Let"s say it is 3 fish. You offer them 3 of that fish, then they will ask if you"d like to provide them added. You pick 3 aacquire, and then repeat. I think tbelow is a limit on this. I turned in three sets before they stopped asking for more (I actually turned in 2 HQ sets, and also then a NQ set.) I am not certain exactly how many leves this is feasible with. It might be all. I will certainly perform more experimentation later on, and also then upday this post.Now I"ll go over the FSH quests:Level 1Fish: 5 Lominsan AnchoviesFish Location: Limsa LominsaBait/lure: LugwormsBait/tempt Location: Given to you once you join the guild.

Skull Valley is a fishing area, yet tbelow is a fishing hole at Brewer’s Beacon. You need to be up by the lighthouse.)Bait/lure: Rat TailBait/entice Location: Purchased from Merchant & Mender in Aleport

*
Side Notes: In the picture, you can not watch it labeled as Bloodshore, but you have the right to watch wbelow I was standing. The entirety shore that I was standing on is Bloodshore. Where I am standing is actually technically Costa del Sol (If you stand also in Costa del Sol, then you are in a sanctuary and also will certainly get a little xp boost), but you"ll be good as lengthy as you"re on that shore.Level 35Fish: 1 Desert CatfishFish Location: Sangolii Dunes fishing hole in Southern Thanalan (See image below)Bait/lure: Sand also LeechesBait/entice Location: Purchased from Merchant & Mender in Forgotten Springs

Side Notes: I labeled Forobtained Springs. Also, make sure that you are fishing from Sagolii Dunes (on the right), and not Sagolii Desert. The quest will tell you to go South of Byregot"s Strike (the red pin in the middle of the desert), however do not listen. Directly to the southern of it is technically Sagolii Desert. Make certain to fish appropriate in the Sagolli Dunes area to be certain (ideal wright here I was standing in the screenswarm have to work). Also, mobs in the location may aggro, so you might want to usage Stealth. Last thing; simply keep fishing. They seem to be the least common fish in the hole. I captured 5 with 70 casts, so that"s about 7%, and also tbelow are just five fish in the hole (excluding the one that you need to mooch, and also the one that you have to double mooch).Level 40Fish: 5 RaincallersFish Location: Jadeite Flood in New GridaniaBait/lure: Stem BorersBait/entice Location: Merchant & Mender in Camp Overlook in Outer La Noscea. There are a couple of various other locations, but that is the one that I understand of.
