  • Sisipu asks you to consult with Sybell about the Consortium's latest request.
  • Sybell instructs you to seek the advice of Firminnant on Whitebrim Front.
  • Firminnant condescendingly suggests dangling hoverworms from a line in the Sea of Clouds beyond Ishgard in order to retrieve five cloud cutters for Sisipu.
  • Sisipu is intrigued that the cloud cutters truly exist, and that you were able to catch them.

    ※The next fisherman quest will be available from Sisipu upon reaching level 50.
Dialogue

Accept Dialogue:

Sisipu:

So you haven't forgotten the old Fishermen's Guild? Good to see that all the prestige and glamour that accompanies fishing stardom hasn't gone to your head. It's a wonder your head hasn't popped, what with all the fullmoon sardine and shadow catfish fables inflating your legend to prodigious proportions. And to think, I knew you when you were still dredging anchovies out of the muck! Rest assured that whatever greatness you go on to achieve, you'll always be the sorry sardine that swam into the guild that fateful day as far as I'm concerned. So, don't expect any sort of preferential treatment. Now, go speak to Sybell and see what she wants. ...If you would be so kind.


You go talk to Sybell.


Sybell:

The libidinous lords of Ul'dah were terribly excited by the raincallers you reeled in, sending our profits soaring accordingly. And so I come to lay yet another conquest before you. You have conquered the waves and the dunes, but what of the clouds? Only you are heavenly enough to fish the cloud cutters that swim the low skies of Ishgard, amid the Sea of Clouds. I, too, doubted my ears upon hearing of such a fish, but Carvallain's resolve was adamant, and he will hear no protests. Besides, I've never been one to say "no." Luckily for us, the Brugaire Consortium has friends in high places, namely, the highlands of Coerthas. You'll want to seek out Firminnant at Whitebrim Front. He will tell you all you need to know. Confident you will prevail in your conquest, I have rendered full payment to Sisipu in advance. You need only bring her the cloud cutters to satisfy me.


You go talk to Firminnant.


Firminnant:

Greetings, traveler. Visitors from Limsa Lominsa are rare to these rare climes. I am told you seek to fish the magnificent cloud cutters that grace the Sea of Clouds. As squires, we practice catching our dinner, but the task is trying for even the most experienced among us. How one unaccustomed to the chore might hope to succeed where so many accomplished fishermen have failed is beyond me. But mine is not to stand in the way of foolhardy endeavors. The fish float upon inflating pockets of vapor, allowing them to ride currents of air. They are thus able to escape predators and take refuge in the clouds. Moreover, an aerial fish requires an aerial worm, in this case hoverworms. Such is the extent of knowledge that I can confer unto you. I fear the remainder is a matter of experience and skill. I should wish you good luck--you will surely need it.


Go fishing!


Turn-in Dialogue:

Sisipu:

So you're able to pluck five cloud cutters from the skies. Are we certain these aren't birds?


You deliver the cloud cutters to Sisipu.


Sisipu:

So these are the fabled cloud cutters! It turns out they weren't birds after all!

Wawalago:

Just like jellyfish, they jump, jerk, and jolt to jiggle themselves up.

Sisipu:

Well, well, speaking of things that float around aimlessly...

Wawalago:

Ishgardians consider the cloud cutter a crest of class and character, and confer them to commemorate and congratulate countrymen who commit conduct "a cut above the clouds," if you will.

Sisipu:

I won't. And what use is it to Carvallain?

Wawalago:

I'll let you in on a little lore, that alleges a legendary Elezen in Limsa Lominsa is actually an Ishgardian lord...I wonder what we'd do if it were Carvallain...

Sisipu:

I suppose I would do what I'm going to do anyway--deliver the fish.

Walkthrough

As the quest dialogue says below, get yourself some hoverworms and head out to the Sea of Clouds fishing spot, which is just barely to the north of Whitebrim Front. Get yourself 5 Cloud Cutters, and go turn the quest in. You can also buy these on the Market if you don't want to fish them up, but there are no special requirements to get these fish (unlike the previous Fisher class quests), so it shouldn't take too long to get!
