During the first days of Sea of Moving Ice fishing has developed into the main task for most adventurers. It’s part of the grind system, but can also be very profitable. We show you how you can make the most out of your time in the Khyek!
Where’s the good stuff coming from?
Fishing provides important Reagents to restore the new Relic Artifact Weapons and some special type of RP for them. These are obtained by catching specific Tier IV fish or can be found within Treasures. The most important thing is that you only fish at the fishing hole locations. On the left you can see a very nice overview where to find them. The original is from @archangelzorak01, but it has been slightly extended. The spots are surrounded by a glowing blue circle on the water and easy to spot. The locations are also important for all you collection hunters, because certain fish only drops at specific ones.
Cancel the reel
If you really only want to farm the mats from fishing all you want is Tier IV fish and the Maps in a Bottle. You can speed up the process a little bit, because the action bar shows what type of bite you got. If it shows a roman IV or no roman number at all, you set the hook. Otherwise you move slightly and fishing will be canceled. This way you won’t have to waste time reeling in stuff you don’t want. Of course you can always catch all fish regardless and work towards the Elk Tribe Support. Using this method you burn through your bait pretty fast, so make sure you always have enough with you.
Tier IV fish include the ones that can be gutted for special resources. Check your collection or the above picture and make sure your location has the Ventdiver, Runechanged Nautiloid, Icebound Whelk or Myrmidon available. A Tier 0 fish is always the Map in a Bottle.
It’s recommended that you fish a location until it disappears. You can stack the bottles and then go treasure hunt in bulk. Several players created maps with all locations and they proved to be pretty accurate. Some of the spots are tricky to get to though. Most of the time you just have to climb up somewhere, but #16 for example needs an accurate jump from the top onto a plateau. Some maps show the spot of the treasure, others show a view from the spot of the treasure. Don’t however get discouraged, it’s relatively easy.
All treasures drop Relics and a selection of either RP, Fish or Reagents. This can include resources that normally only drop from Heroic Encounters and also the Enchanted Fishing Pole. The special boat location lands the Dragonbone Khyek.
Currently fishing is very profitable. In case you’re looking for AD it’s probably best to sell the Maps outright. People are still hunting for the purple boat and pole slightly overpay. You however get an insane amount of bound RP for the new Relic Artifact Weapons from treasures, which should land you enough for a Legendary rank in no time.
No matter what ways of turning Fishing into profit you prefer, you can’t do much wrong with sitting in your Khyek these days!
