@sweetsapling That spreadsheet is a nice attempt to organize the achievement fish. However, there are some glaring inaccuracies. For one thing, it lists Midget Salmon, Banded Killifish, and Driftfish as River fish in Alik'r. There are no river fish in Alik'r because there are no rivers. Rather these fish were added to the other water types in absence of rivers. Midget Salmon is a Foul Water blue fish. Driftfish is a green Sea Water fish. Banded Killifish is a green Lake Water fish. There are other zones where not all 4 water types are present as well and none are represented on that chart.
Something like....this: Fishing Spreadsheet
Edit: For the purpose of missing water types I left the chart intact, instead there is a footnote for such zones that indicate where each of the missing water type rares can be found.
Aw, I'm sorry to hear that But WE know that you did it, so CONGRATS Mr.Master Angler!Would have had the actual Master Fisher/Angler achievement if not for the bugged starter island achievements.
Slightly nitpicking: most info (that wasn't in the original at that time) came from personal experience. I made the chart a few weeks before Patch 1.1.2 (early May).EDIT: Kyoma has made an improved version of the spreadsheet, with info collected from players here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/195fJ7bK4hkXYgncC4Dpp6FIZqKAr5M6wEg7yaIjfoVA/edit?pli=1#gid=0
Can't believe I missed that.... (-_-)On the Spread sheet:
Reaper's Marsh should be Reapers March.
Ilinalta Trout; which is listed as a fish from the Rift, was caught at the same time I caught a Sturgeon in Auridon. It also marked it off my Rift Angler list.
lmao....looking at the picture of this so called trout I'm here to tell you that a sword fish is indeed NOT a trout. In Skyrim they had it right. In fact I see lots of things that dont look right according to the name like fangs that look like eggs just as an example. It seriously makes me wonder if Zenimax ever played Oblivion & Skyrim. lmao....Shivering Isle dont look at all like the Shivering Isle from the Oblivion expansion!!!
Fishing is broken PERIOD! Fishing nodes suck a$$ and are a huge immersion breaker and to top it all off the fish is completely worthless! In Skyrim you could cook the fish you caught but in Zenimax Online you cant. I really think Zenimax should have taken some serious notes from both Oblivion and Skyrim!
It is likely that the 'missing water type rares are divided amongst the other water types' may also apply when there are only a small amount of spots. In this case foul water does exist in Deshaan but there are only a handful of them.While fishing in Deshaan yesterday, I got all 3 foul water fishes from other sources, as has been mentioned in some other areas as well. Namely;
Lake: Mud Lamprey
Ocean: Mustard Eel
If I find any other deviations from the spreadsheet in the upcoming days/weeks, I'll edit this post.
A while back I contacted Support to see what the status was on those achievements. The reply I got stated that they are working on it and hopefully retroactive. It's possible they're waiting with fixing the actual achievements until they can retroactively award them to players that have caught the rares already.The bugged starter island achievements are not fixed yet. Maybe 1. They don't care or 2. They don't know how to repair it. 3. They don't have enough people working on fixing things.
