Fishing Hot Spot's - Not Visible?


11 posts in this topic

Posted

Hello Everyone, 

Here is my situation, recently(For me, started back up after some 130 days off) the game has implemented fishing hot spots that are visible from distance from jumping fish and seagulls.

The problem is, my friend whom is a higher level fisher keeps pointing out all of these hot spots while boating around, in party or separate, however...I don't see any hot spots or signs of whatsoever. Even if I fish directly over the spot my friend sees as a hot spot I don't get the benefit. 

For reference I am apprentice level 6 fishing at this time.  

Is some form of quest/pre-requisite required to view & find these fishing hot spots....or is something just messed up on my end? 

Thanks in advance, 

~ts

Tbh I knew that fishing spots don't exist anymore, but i'm glad to be corrected.

...

with increasing level you get to see more hotspots for fishing

 

 

....

the stationary ones, like the one which was near velia, were revamped and now there are moving ones indicated by sea birds.

From what I can understand, fishing hot spots are based on tier of fishing (Beginner, Apprentice, Skilled, and so on). If you have the same level or below, you can see it. You can fish at a level one higher then yours, but not see it -- so that only works if you have someone higher leveled then you. Inherently, seeing more tiers of hotspots would mean that you can see more overall.

this is correct. you wont be able to see it until your fishing level is high enough, but u would still be able to fish from it

I'm fishing professional 3 and most of the hotspots are no longer around. I used to see them all over the place now it's a rarity.

I'm glad somone else mention this, I'm fishing master 9, and it's a rarity for me as well now after last patch. I could not find anything in the patch notes about lower the intensity.

Tried it myself as well as with a guildie, and if you're unable to see it, you also don't get gold fish.

Yesterday, from fishing skilled 8 to pro 1, I leveled only on hotspots. Hotspot after hotspot after hotspot.. I did 3 fishing sessions. Each session I obtained 60-70 yellow fish, selling for imperial delivery or in ancando harbor

PSA: Static hotspots are still in-game. Some of lesser rarity like a "blue" hotspot. In safe zones or not.
