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.

Hooking Wrothgar’s Biggest Catch (10 pt.)

Catch the rare Crab-Slaughter-Crane fish found in Wrothgar.

Atorag, located on the shore of the village next to the Exile’s Barrow, will tell you a tell of a crane whose neck was grasped by a mudcrab and flew into the air.  Eventually the mudcrab kills the crane and falls down towards the ocean when a giant slaughterfish jumps out of the water and swallows the crane and the mudcrab whole.

She suggests fishing the ocean at night with some friends to catch the giant slaughterfish.

I made a solo attempt at night and caught one before exhausting my second fishing hole.
