Road To Master Angler

Capelobster
Good people of Tamriel, I am starting the arduous task of becoming a master angler. Join me for the group fishing rare fish buff! Craft us some Artaeum Pickled Fish Bowls with my mats! Let's do it.

    Actually, I didn't find it to be that bad. In some cases, a few fish took me a longer time than others - but I did it on four characters over about 6 months total, and it was really pretty fun (except for having to mess around in Cyrodiil - though none of them ever got killed because I picked very quiet campaigns off hours).

    Annoyed me no end though that you can keep all the rare fish, but there's no place to show them off in a house....

    It would help to state your platform and server.

    After a few hours of thieving, murdering, dungeon running, and adventuring, fishing can be quite relaxing. Put on some music or a good movie and have at it. I have 8 master anglers and I'm currently working on number 9. I enjoy fishing and I just sold 30 perfect roe so there's that, too.

    Good luck! :)

    Edit: If you are on PC, and haven't already, you might want to check out these addons: Destinations, Rare Fish Tracker, Votan's Fisherman, and I forget the name of the addon for cleaning fish. Hope someone else can remember that one.

    PC/NA. Good suggestions. I think Votan's Fillet is the one you're thinking of.

    Good luck! It's not so bad. When I did it for the second time, I fished alone and used Artaeum Pickled Fish Bowl and it only took me about two weeks.

    I'm wondering, with the fish bowl, and fishing in groups of 2-4 average, do you think it should take about 100 hours?
  • Capelobster
    Can anyone confirm if using Arteum Fish Bowl is the same as fishing in a group of 4 for bonus chance? I'm wondering if the best thing to do is just solo and buy fish bowls, or even to try to get the recipe myself.

    The Artaeum Fish Bowl definitely helps, some maniac whose done Master Angler a few times tested it himself. If you're going for the title I would always have it ready and if you can get a group to join you on top of that it makes it way more efficient.

    Good to know. I have heard that group and Artaeum bonus either might not stack, or you get diminishing returns. Fishing solo with this food is going ok.

    Got it last year, watch some movie or stuff on screen two.
    Hint for Cyrodil ocean has two location with fishing spots I know about. One is on the AD side at river just south of Bloodmane keep and north of the border wall. The other less known is for the EP faction south of Nbben bridge, go to the border river and follow the coast north.
    Fishers tend to not gank each others,

    Note that if Bloodmane keep is under siege or taken the AD spot can get a bit dangerous.

    I say coldharbor is the hardest zone as you need 12 fool water fish and this require plenty of rng, on other zones you need 3 or 4 fish from 3 or 4 water types. Some zones has few spawn of an type so here you have them as an priority and fish other spots then they are down.

    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    Yeah they should add a crafting function to build a mount the rare fish you have caught so you can hang them on a wall in a house.

    Ty, and I feel you on that one. I couldn't possibly imagine playing this on console anymore. I started a long time ago, but stopped and when I came back, I switched to PC :smile:

    Am doing Coldharbour rn. need the (green) Blue Slimefish and the (blue) Ghoulfish only. Keep catching repeats.

    Say coldharbor is 3 times harder than other zones, its also an pretty depressing place.
