Your goblin friendlyfriend came around looking for you to make his fishiest fantasies come true. It would appear he recalled a dish that tickled his fancy some years ago, and now needs you to fish it out for him. This desert catfish, as it is apparently called, is indigenous to, and this is the truly mind-boggling part--the desert, of all places. Tocktix spoke of a trapper named U'goromuli who'd fished one out of Forgotten Springs in the south of Thanalan. Surely it couldn't hurt to speak with her?
You go speak to U'goromuli.
Friend of Tocktix, you say? Sure, dunefished my fair share of desert catfish.
Never eat them though, know that much. Only ever use them as sandworm bait. Thought of eating desert catfish hasn't occured to me until the goblin devoured it before my eyes. Still wouldn't touch them myself. Different fish for different folk, as they say. No problem fishing them out, though. Can even tell you how it's done. Just comes down to the right bait in the right place. Nothing to it, really. Easy as dropping a line with some sand leeches down at the fishing hole east of Byregot's Strike. Not the same as sea fishing here in the dunes, mind you. Real test of your reel out here. Trick is to hold on when it flails. Only takes one to make a day's haul.
Pshhh...Shkohhh...Fishbringer finds tastyfresh fishcat in sandylands for friendlyfriend Tocktix, yes?
You deliver a desert catfish to Tocktix.
Pshhh...Shkohhh... Tocktix is thanksgiving to fishbringer for lipsmacking fishcat! Fishcat nosestrings make for strengthful satchelstrands. Tocktix trades lipflaps with Lyngsath for fancycooking of fishcat in Bismarck! Lyngsath only fancycooks after shoplock because of strengthful fishcat odor. Fishbringer makes Tocktix one happygobbie!
The in-game text really says 'down at the fishing hole SOUTH of Byregot's Strike, but the fishing hole is actually located to the EAST of Byregot's, so I changed it to match the actual location.
