ESOTU Master Angler on 12 Characters!

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

Wow, congratulations to MyNameIsElias who posted on the Official Forums that he has obtained the title Master Angler on 12 characters. You read that right: 12 Characters.

He may be the closest thing in Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited to the World of Warcraft player that leveled his panda character to max level by only harvesting nodes in the beginner area.

Check out his post on the official forums, he has included some interests statistics like how many fishes caught, perfect roe found, etc.

ESOTU Starting to Add Dark Brotherhood Information

UpdateGreetings All. I have started to update my content with information from the PTS.

So far, I have found a new potion and started to identify the traits of  the Alchemy Reagents. I’ve found one new crafting station in the Gold Coast and have added it to the crafted sets article.  I’ve added the new fishing achievement for the Gold Coast and will identify the water type when the DLC goes live.

Stay tuned.

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).

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.

ESO Fishing Guide

After reading the Guide to Fishing Tamriel, I found the content lacking sufficient details to satisfy my scholarly curiosity.  I wanted more details and it set out to answer my many unanswered questions.

Summary

Boat with fish under it.

The fish do you no good in the water.

This guide covers fishing in a very comprehensive and organized manner.  Fishing results in special achievements (including one of the rarest titles in the game), crafting raw material (including the legendary ingredient for crafting experience potions), and rare sellable fish. The legendary ingredient, Perfect Roe, is currently fetching a high price and harvesting it is a lucrative activity. There are four types of water fish can be found and particular bait must be used at the right location to obtain the best results.   Fishing parties looking for rare fish should limit their group to 4 or 5 people. The table below lists the water types and their respective baits.  Several tools have been created to make fishing a lot easier.

Water Type Bait
Foul Crawlers. Fish Roe
Lake Guts, Minnow
Ocean Worms, Chum
River Insect Parts, Shad

ESO Lore: A Guide to Fishing Tamriel

Ah, fishing, my son. After a hard week of farming, or a long night of being nagged by your wife, there is nothing better than going out for a bit of a fish.

Hdgs_FishingNow just being alone in the wild, listening to the wind in the trees or the waves on the shore, is good enough for most men. Catching anything of worth is typically the furthest from their minds. And of course that means their neighbors and wives think all they did was sleep in the forest. Read More
