ESOTU Hooked Wrothgar’s Biggest Catch!

I decide to take a break from my crafting writs and go fishing. The village near the Exile’s Barrow in Wrothgar was highly recommended as the place to fish. While fishing under the stars, I caught the elusive Crab-Slaughter-Crane. Afterwards, I updated my fishing tome while celebrating my achievement at the Inn with a pint of their finest.

ESOTU Patch Notes v2.2.11 – Crafting Summary

UpdateThe following is a summary of the crafting related changes included in this #ESOTU patch.

Exploration & Itemization
Fishing

  • Fixed an issue where a previous fix had resulted in a sudden spawning frenzy in all of Wrothgar’s waters, leading to some of you being able to catch multiple fish per cast. The season has turned and fish are now back to normal.

ESOTU Fishing Glitch?

Fisherman holds fish

There appears to be a double fish “glitch” in #ESOTU.  I was fishing in Wrothgar gathering some information for my fish list the other day. I noticed I was getting more fish than usual. At the time, I thought it might have been because I recently added more champion points to the plentiful harvest line but noticed I got less fish later (but it was in another zone).  Others have also noticed that the double fish “glitch” as well and were talking about it at length in the Wrothgar zone chat (NA Server).

General

  • Fixed an issue that was causing many fishing holes in Wrothgar to not grant fish if three or more people were fishing together. Fishing with your buddies is a time-honored tradition in Wrothgar, and is once again supported.

ESO Fishing Hole Map Compendium

After some considerable effort, my hirelings and I explored much of the Ebonheart Pact regions looking for fishing holes.  This compendium is the first edition the covers most of the Ebonheart pact. The maps are a bit crude as it is my first attempt at producing maps.

ESO Uncommon and Rare Fish Guide for Master Angler Wannabes

There’s an old fishing expression, “it’s not the length of the worm that matters but how you wiggle it that matters”.  The list of fish needed for each region is well known (see journal, achievements, trophies, fishing) but not the water type of each. Fortunately, that’s where this tome fills the gap.

Summary

Strange fish

There are 25 different fishing achievements up for grab in Tamriel.  One for every region. One for every faction. One for getting them all. Aside from a sense of great accomplishment, the fisher is bestowed the title of Master Angler and unlocks several new colours for dyeing equipment.  The uncommon fish (green) have a vendor price of 36g and the rare fish (blue) a price of 110g.

This document lists all of the rare fish in each region and which body of water they can be found. In some regions without a certain water type, the rare fish are divided by the remaining water types.
