FFXI Guide - Fishing

December 13, 2009

In Final Fantasy XI (FFXI), players who take up Fishing are able to catch a variety of fish in the many bodies of water found in Vana’diel for profit or fun.

A lot of the supplies you need for Fishing can be purchased from guild merchant or from other players for FFXI Gil, so you might want to buy FFXI Gil to ensure that you have enough funds for your crafting materials.

Fishing Ranks and Tests

To start your career in Fishing, go to the upper level of the primary Fishing Guild in Port Windurst (C-8) and speak to Guildmaster Thubu Parohren. You will then become a member of the Fishing Guild with the rank Amateur.

To advance your rank in Fishing, you have to speak to Thubu Parohren and complete the tests she gives you. These tests will require you to craft specific items.

As with all the crafts, there are 9 ranks in Fishing. Below is a table listing the ranks, what skill level you need to be at to take your next test, and what item you need to craft (ingredients for the items can be found in the Recipes section of this guide).

Guild Points

Each craft has a Guild Union Representative and you can turn in a certain item each day to the representative and receive Guild Points as a reward. To begin doing this as a Chef, you will have to speak to Hauh Colphioh at the Windurst Woods (G-12) and sign a contract (note that signing another contract will cause you to forfeit any Guild Points you accumulated while under your first contract). You can use your Guild Points to purchase tools, key item abilities, and signature crystals.

Below is a table of items you can purchase using your Guild Points. Signature Crystals (crystals that can be used in place of regular Crystals while crafting and adds the crafter’s “signature” to the crafted items) can be purchased at any rank, but the other items and abilities that can be purchased require you to be at a certain guild rank.
