One Fish, Two Fish

One Fish, Two Fish

This post (3/31) is part of the Blaugust Reborn event! You can find out more about the event at Belghast’s blog. I (Chestnut) created a Twitter list of all participants. Armagon created an OPML file of all the bloggers to import into your feed reader.

Both Rumorsmatrix and  Stroeb recently talked about going fishing in WoW. Which made me get bitten by the fishing bug. But not in WoW (I have a lot of other achievements I’m focusing on than grinding out my fishing ones), in Final Fantasy. A while ago, when I streamed some FFXIV on Twitch, I told folks I was going to just level through ARC/BRD (currently at 24) to max and ignore FSH and go back to it later.

But after seeing those fishing blog posts, the fishing bug bit me bad, and I had to hop in and play some last night. I dug out the fishing leveling guide I was using a while ago, though I don’t know how accurate it is anymore? My old main never made it past the 30s in fishing, if I recall. I spent a good two hours just chilling in Limsa, using up all my rested EXP (woops), and getting to FSH 10. I’m looking forward to doing some more fishing.

But also just found out that there’s a weekly fashion contest at the Gold Saucer, so now I’m torn on which spec to spend some time on this weekend…

  1. Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention it in my reply there but you don’t necessarily need an adventure class for the Fashion Report. I mean, it helps but some times you can get 100 points on it with a crafting or gathering class.

    Last week for instance I got 98 points as as Weaver since it was the class I had that could use all the pieces.

  2. Fishing in FFX sounds very interesting – much more complex than Warcraft. Making it an entire class sounds perfect – I’ll have to try it one day, maybe when the Warcraft content lull hits.

    Thanks for reading!

    1. It definitely seems more complex than WoW! I do find it a bit more fun. But it’s also a lot more relaxing to me. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts if you ever decide to pick up FFXIV! 🙂

  3. Green Fish, Blue Fish.
    Couldn’t resist!
    I love fishing too, only in games though. I can’t resist it. It’s relaxing. The fish are often pretty and useful. Often treasures are fished up along with the inevitable junk.

    1. Hehe, I was hoping someone would! 😉

      Fishing is my favorite thing in games, and I’m not sure why! Maybe the relaxation factor?

  4. Fishing in XIV isn’t to bad, just takes patience. The worst part is 50-60, the HW Leves aren’t worth much. Fsh was the last gatherer I capped.

    Leves are where it’s at for gathering/crafting though.

    1. I’ve never done any content in HW (I never made it past like, patch 2.2 or something?), so anything in HW will be fun, even if it’ll be a grind! Besides, that’s what Netflix or a book is for! 😉

      1. As an expansion in general, I loved Heavensward. I became invested in the characters and story in a way that Stormblood had a hard time matching. Stormblood did eventually start growing on me though.
