No, it keeps running.

Hello.. first off.. I would like to thank everyone who has provided information regarding this topic. I just had a few questions I was hoping you guys could answer for me.

 

1. How often do hot spots change?

2. Is the fishing outfit worth it for someone who wants to get invested in fishing?

3. Do people get PK'd a lot that are over 45+ at these hot spots?

4. Does the availability of fish matter in hot spots? (Abundant, average, etc.) 

5. Do you like Lemon Meringue pie? 

 

Thank you all and have a great day :)

A thing I noticed is that in the hotspot I'm using off Epheria port, I sometimes get white fish when I hit PERFECT on the spacebar game. I've been AFK fishing there for 2 nights, didnt get a single white fish, almost only blue and yellow and a few greens. I fished manually for a few minutes there and on two occasions I got a white fish when I hit perfect on the spacebar. Not sure if extreme coincidence or if that's a bug.

edit: just happened again. Guess I have to try not to get perfect on spacebar, which is kind of ridiculous...

White fish is considered trash. If you have the throw away trash button checked it will not pick it up during afk fishing.

1. We don't know, It has been said that hotspots get shuffled on downtime in the Korean and Russian version. We have not had it shuffle yet since launch.

2. If you mean the cash shop outfit. I don't see the point of spening like 20 euro on it myself. getting +5 fishing is not hard to get without it. The swimming speed is nice though.

3. I have not heard anything about it yet, I don't fish at the public spots myself. I wonder what the karma loss would be if you'd turn on PK mode and kill fishers at velia spot :P.

4. It does nto change the fish you catch. It just changes the time it takes to catch them. With fishing speed 5 it takes about 15-20 seconds to catch a fish on an abundant spot. And 45-50 seconds on an Exhausted spot.

5. No

1. they CAN be changed every MT, doesnt mean that it happens every MT, also when they are changed doesn´t mean that it happens to every Hotspot (happens often in kr that some spots still survives 1-2 MT´s & some not)
mostly the hotspots are the same like Korean one cuz the client version matters not the content we have (but it can also be that some spots get changed manually from the dev´s in our version like it happens to the one on the beach near velial cuz this spot still works on kr but not for us while all others working on booth versions)

The perfect spot in the hotspot moves a little, so sometimes it helps if you just turn abit until you find blue and yellow again :)

hitting perfect on spacebar has nothing to do with what fish you get, it only lets you skip the mini game.  I think it also does not consume durability for that one time.

Ok, I've been working on a document with info - it's a ROUGH draft and I'll continue developing it with images/catch inventory, etc. It's been a bit slow moving due to RL stuff and getting my fishing boat squared away. For now, here you go

Also, another user on reddit has begun compiling reports from players about locations, which are subject to testing. Link to reddit post/map here

 

Edited to include link to reddit post as well as the map.

I would like to add a new kind of hotspot.

While boating around looking for new hotspots today I found a location that would give a bite every single time at 20 seconds. Timing casts in other areas around the node didn't get anything as quick as that.  Should we add a Fast Spot to the list? It dropped every kind of fish/item you would expect from a non hot spot, but like I said it was consistent at 20 seconds. Moving just a little bit away from that spot my timers started going up to what I think is more normal at 1-3 minutes per cast.

What do you guys think?

This is great guys! Everyone try to find hotspots and post them here after the maintenance because I am unsure of whether or not they will change.

I figured I would like to cross post this thread I originally created on Reddit.

Hot Spots (by some referred to as Golden Fishing Spots) are providing a very high chance to catch blue and golden fish. edit: Since a few people have been wondering if they've found a new hot spot or not. First, yes you can catch the fish listed below in other places, however and this is the defining point: If you're fishing at a hot spot you'll almost only catch blue and gold fish. About three-fourths of your catches should be blue or gold fish. You could literally afk fish at a hot spot without ticking the "throw away useless items" box and you still would end up with an inventory full of blue and gold fish and this should be true even for a character with a "Beginner" fishing skill.

 

Here is what we know about those Hot Spots:

  • Hot Spots are kind of confirmed. Korean Patch Notes from 08/01/2016 translated to: "Fishing Point has been moved along the ocean currents." Original Topic. However we can not be sure if we are referring to the same spots as the devs. These spots are known in the KR version since a long time though.
  • There may are multiple hot spots across the sea, even with different tables of fish. Important to determine a hot spot is the gray <-> blue/ gold ratio.
  • Hot Spots seem to be moved manually by the Devs on a regular base with maintenance, therefore they are static. However, as of now (NA/EU) we can not be sure if Hot Spots are cycling in a pathern or not.
  • Besides those static Hot Spots some players are reporting that moving Hot Spots (for distinguishing purposes may refer to them as "Schools") do exist as well. These Schools are moving beetween given spots and will provide the same fish as Hot Spots. The spots for Schools are likely to be changed with maintenance as well. See the addition at the end of this post for further information.
  • Hot Spots are the same across all NA/EU servers and channels.
  • Hot Spots are very narrow you can miss the spot by just a boats length or a turnaround.
  • As of now (NA/EU) they were around the coast or offshore near the coast.


If you hit a Hot Spot, you will catch:

  • Misc.: Ancient Relic Crystal Shard, Silver Key
  • Gray: Fourfinger Threadfin, Butterflyfish, Jellyfish
  • Green: Amberjack, Sardine
  • Blue: Swordfish, Eel
  • Yellow: Moray, Tilefish
  • Orange: Coelacanth

This is what your inventory will look like after a session.

To find Hot Spots you can try looking for other players. It is likely that a player highly ranked in fishing knows about a Hot Spot. You can always check a players location in the Velia Inn, talk to the hooded man, named "Black-Robed Man" at the entrance on the opposite side of "<Chef> David Finto". You'll have to pay him 10,000 silver and 5 energy though. To look up the names of high ranked players press P and click on "Ranking" (next to the "Profession" headline), then choose the fishing tab. You've to type in the name in brackets. If you have no luck, try to switch channels, the ranking is based of the channel you're currently in after all.

As of now there are no indicators for a Hot Spot whatsoever. People are likely to try and error to find a Hot Spot in the first place. Maybe there is a list that is kept a secret among top players, but we could only speculate.


If you find a Hot Spot, be sure to share the location with the community, as we shared these information with you to beginn with! You may use this thread to share new locations after maintenance.

 

14/03/2016

The current Hot Spot location is north of the Coastal Cave Node (west of Velia). Use this picture of the map and this picture of the minimap to locate the exact spot. You'll see a bunch of other players fishing there already, you can't miss it. Just make sure you are on spot, you know that you are on spot if you catch the fish I mentioned above. Credit goes to TheFistaCuffs, thank you for originally sharing this location!

Epheria has quite a few, although they may not be abundant. I'm still working on updating my gdoc, but it has links to pins for the spots I haven't been able to hit yet. The rest are either confirmed with catch photos, or are inconclusive.  Most of the spots outside of Epheria and Velia are still abundant. 

And another user has compiled a work in progress map, here.

Thank you for your post and the time you spend on making this, all players could use the money to get their homes settled, workers working, and farms, cooking and other skills kick started, dependent on what gameplay they prefer. You cant trade money, but you can trade kindness :)

Hi, im also from jordine, if you find one exausted, try another location, it also depends on what time on the day you fish. Im not really bothered when im afk, i dont sit and wait for it.

There is other things you can do to make it go faster when you are actively fishing.

there is some wine you can cook that increases your fishing speed rank, so time is lower. http://bddatabase.net/us/recipe/131/

If you dont want to use money on the fish costume, you can keep follow Crio's quest line, and he will give you Apprentice fisher uniform. http://bddatabase.net/us/item/14069/

With these sharings, and people spreading out if they get bothered by the exausted resources at active server times, it might be more fun for the people who doesnt like waiting abit longer when being out on the ocean :)
