Ocean Fishing

MainIcon24.png
Ocean Fishing is a feature exclusive to Fishers. Unlocked from the All the Fish in the Sea quest, up to 24 players join an Ocean Fishing voyage. By meeting certain conditions while fishing during the voyage, players will receive achievements that reward special titles, mounts, and minions.

Overview

Every two hours (Earth time), players can register for the next Ocean Fishing voyage with Dryskthota at the Limsa Lominsa Ferry Docks.

  1. Players can join as a pre-formed party or will be matched together if traveling solo. After 15 minutes of registration time, the ship will depart, even if there are fewer than 24 participants.
  2. There are seven different zones and each voyage will consist of three 7-minute segments.
  3. Gathering and Perception stats are ignored and therefore do not impact the likelihood of catching fish nor yield. Players should maximize GP for Ocean Fishing.

Spectral Currents

Spectral Currents are a special weather effect that form under certain conditions. During a Spectral Current, fish will be hooked faster and are worth more points. Moreover, some types of fish only appear during spectral currents.

  1. Each non-spectral area has a certain "Spectral" fish, which, when caught, has a small chance of triggering a Spectral Current.
    Dolphins' Auroral Flipper buff increases the chance of triggering a Spectral Current.
  2. If a segment does not experience a Spectral Current, the activation rate and length (from 2 minutes to 3 minutes) of a Spectral Current will be increased if triggered in the following segment.

Bait

Special bait for Ocean Fishing (Krill, Ragworm, Plump Worm) can be purchased at the ferry docks or aboard the Endeavor. A varying fourth bait is necessary for some intuition-based spectral fish as follows:

Route Fish Bait
Galadion Spectral Current Sothis Glowworm
Southern Merlthor Spectral Current Coral Manta Shrimp Cage Feeder
Northern Merlthor Spectral Current Elasmosaurus Heavy Steel Jig
Rhotano Spectral Current Stonescale Rat Tail
Cieldalaes Spectral Current Hafgufa Squid Strip
Bloodbrine Spectral Current Seafaring Toad Pill Bug
Sirensong Spectral Current Dusk Shark Mackerel Strip
Ruby Spectral Current Hells' Claw Squid Strip
One River Spectral Current Jewel of Plum Spring Stonefly Nymph

Fish

There are more than 300 fish able to be caught during Ocean Fishing, with each fish yielding points per fish from a minimum of 10 to a maximum of 500 points. Points are per fish, and catching more fish per cast will multiple the resulting point value. In order to catch multiple fish with one cast, when available, player must use Double Hook or Triple Hook. "Large" fish are worth double points. As a result, a single cast can potentially yield more than 1000 points depending on the fish itself, the number of fish caught, and size. See the below charts for possible fish per route. Fish in gold are standard targets for high scoring.

Points & Bonuses

Players will accumulate points during each voyage for each fish caught (see above). Players will receive bonuses to their score when they, of their group, surpass certain milestones during each voyage.
