    For the love of Altana, fix fishing skillups

    Ok I capped my cooking skill to 110 and started leveling fishing. I've been following all of the community feedback about which rods/bait to use for skillups. I've been doing this now for 3 weeks and I've only gotten to skill lv 30....30....

    ANY other crafts I can max out to 70 in 2 days...but fishing takes 3 weeks to only get to skill 30?

    Add in that the 1 item that you can get (aside from food item) to help increase the gain rate on it is damn near impossible to get (Pelican Ring) and ONLY comes from either Mog Tablet or from log in points.

    Can you PLEASE adjust the rate in which skill gain is given at lower levels like other crafts??? Been playing this game for almost 17 years and never thought I would disappointed and disgusted at the rate of gain.

    Pelican ring doesn't just come from those events. It comes from taking part in the fishing competition reaching at least rank 20.

    Fishing wasn't seen as a main craft, it was a sideline to crafting. What is the rush?

    Fishing was treated as more of a hobby and not so much as a craft. Taht's part of why it's not subject to teh same restrictions. Fishing has always been the slowest thing to level up, and the only thing there is to help that is the skill-up campaigns.

    I don't agree with Alhanelem. You can do Fishing 1-100 in 3 weeks. You need to choose fish to catch that are 8-10 skill levels above your current skill. Once you've gained ~5-10 levels of skill, you look for the next fish to catch and move on. This is what I did:

    Fishing
    0-10 moat carp! (caps at 11)
    10-26 Cheval salmon (E.Ronfaure, caps at 21)
    tricolored carp (E. Ronfaure caps at 27)
    26-28 giant catfish (Zehruhn Mines (Bridge) with minnow, caps at 31)
    28-38 Nosteau herring (Port Jeuno, Airship area, shrimp lure, caps at 39 )
    38-46 Istakoz (also Istridye 53, Robber Rig, Nashmau)
    52-61 Trumpet Shell Vunker Inlet (S) to level 58 https://www.ffxiah.com/item/5466/trumpet-shell robber rig lushangs
    58-86 Ahtapot/Mercanbiligi using Shangs + Shrimp Lure
    86-99 Pterygotus
    99-108 Armored pisces to 108
    108-110 Cave cherax to 110

    I doubt that. Even fishing to the cap daily (which takes a while), I don't think you can go 1-100 in 3 weeks.

    You're entitled to your opinion, but my primary reason for posting was to sharing my experience and how I did it (specifically, which fish I sought after). Granted this was a 3-4 years ago...but I don't think fishing skill up rates was changed by SE in that time.

    Not really an opinion, more the fact I levelled fishing and have everything in relation to fishing (Ebisu rod+1 etc etc.) You must have been fishing around 4 hours a day?

    I don't agree with Alhanelem.
    What do you mean you don't agree with me? I never specified an exact time period, only that fishing is the slowest craft. Which it is, you can't disagree with me, it's a fact unless you count chocobo digging, maybe, which isn't an "official" craft. The fact that you can do it in 3 weeks is irrelevant, you can do any other craft faster than that if you have the gil/items to get there.
