  • The merchant Tocktix has return to the Fishermen's Guild once more, this time in search of a desert catfish, which is a key ingredient in one of his favorite dishes. Unaware how a fisher might pull anything from sandd, Sisipu recommends that you seek out U'goromuli, a dunefishing acquaintance of Tocktix's and a resident of Forgotten Springs in southern Thanalan.
  • Though she would never eat desert catfish herself, U'goromuli is more than happy to assist you. She advises you to seek out a fishing hole east of Byregot's Strike, near an Amalj'aa encampment, and use sand leeches to catch your quarry. Once acquired, deliver the fish to Tocktix outside the Fishermen's Guild.
  • Tocktix is estatic to receive his prized gourmet catfish. He promptly informs you that he shall waste no time in taking it to the Bismarck, where he has reserved a table for one after closing.

    ※The next fisher quest will be available from Sisipu upon reaching level 40.

Accept Dialogue: Sisipu:

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.

Turn-in Dialogue:


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. Edit A Fish out of Water's Notes
