Fish are biting on live servers! Here’s a basic guide on Telara’s fishing spots to help get folks started. All information was initially gathered from the PTS, so some of it may need updating. I am currently in the process updating it, so if you notice anything that needs to be fixed, lemme know in the comments section!

Listed below, you will find information on a given area’s skill required, fishing quest turn-ins, and the locations for shallow and deep water pools as well as the fish that can be found there. In all areas unless otherwise stated, Unmarked Boxes or Sunken Treasure Chests can drop that have items within them. These won’t be listed, nor will grey items. Feel free to drop me a line if you notice any mistakes.

  • Raegmoar @Laethys

    You can fish on ANY waterfall in scarlet gorge. i have tested every single one after i was running back down to teh porticulum from the north (im defiant) and i was running down the river. Every waterfall was dismounting me as if i had entered water, sure enough, u can fish on top of each waterfall -its deep water.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Laura-Hardgrave/100000713622505 Laura Hardgrave

       Cool, will update. Thanks!

  • Narrian

    Both Firebelly Snapper, and Serene Flatfish have a use. Makes +23sp, and 217health food. Both these fish are used, aswell as 2 vendor components.

    I’m sorry i dont have the name of the food, but it was linked in 50chat eariler tonight, and was said to come from Tackle boxes, he said he got his from EI tackle boxes.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Laura-Hardgrave/100000713622505 Laura Hardgrave

       Good to know, sounds like they’ve given every fish a use, which is awesome.

  • Covenaishbala

    Sand Nautilus(1)+Amphibious Jelly(1)+Brown Perch(3) + Spellspun Silk(2)+Orichalum bar(1)= Epic Lure 2 charges (GREATLY IMPROVE CATCHING RARE ARITIFACTS) Rate I would say really high, so far I used 5 with 7/10 Blue Artifacts.

  • Raegmoar @Laethys

    “Eel Fillet” is a rare recipe drop for 285 survival. Uses [Highland Eel] from Moonshade HIghlands & [Bull Chamelionfish] from Stillmoor. Makes food that grants “Attack Power +6 and Physical Crit +39″

    • Raegmoar @Laethys

       also, where exactly do you fish from the “north” lake of solace. i have not been able to find a single spot, only the dunes of akala. is it possible to fish shallow water lake of solace? i don’t think so. please provide coordinates

      • Raegmoar @Laethys

         nevermind im such a derp. 5622, 6405 in dunes of akala, same spot i’m doing Deep Water ‘lake of solace’. such an idiot lol

      • Raegmoar @Laethys

         Deep Ray is used in the Recipe: Jellied Ray. Req’s 280 survival and grants buff: Max Mana +571 and Spell Power +12

  • FBueller

    You can also fish all SS fish in Faen’s Retreat, given that you have your magic ticket to gain entry! Faen’s Retreat has the one little pond with both shallow and deep water. So far I haven’t seen anyone else here – Faeblight shard.

  • Cantril

    Deep ray from ember isle is used in recipe “Jellied Ray” requiring 2 deep ray, 2 sea salt, 1 ground spice and 1 fresh herb.

    • Raegmoar @Laethys

       i posted that below a day earlier

  • Jason

    Brightwater Octopus is used in the Feast of Efficacy…. a random drop. not sure which lure its used in, if any.

  • iamoofle

    Silverwood Devil turn in is 8 per, not 3.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Laura-Hardgrave/100000713622505 Laura Hardgrave

       Good catch, thanks.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Laura-Hardgrave/100000713622505 Laura Hardgrave

       Awesome, added!

  • John Pearce

    As best I can tell, while you can catch the normal Blenny in Scarlet Gorge, there are no *trophy* versions here, although they are plentiful in Scarwood Reach. The reverse is true of the freshwater shrimp. I caught none in Scarwood reach, but easily caught them in Scarlet Gorge

  • http://www.facebook.com/miffedplatypus Jenifer Fisher

    The Indigoby in Gloamwood is 8 per turn-in, not 3.

  • Valethar

    The daily quest requirements are out of date. Most turn in’s I’ve seen thus far require 12, not 3 or 8.

  • Bridgett

    Any chance we could have an update to this outstanding guide? I really like this guide for identifying where to catch what fish. I organize my guild bank according to your listing.

    • Laura Hardgrave

      Yeah, apologies for letting it get behind. I’m planning on updating this once we get more of our class guides updated. I’m glad you’re still making use of it, that may just give me the incentive to get to it quicker. :)

  • spenny
