So, you have unlocked your fishing artifact… You have, right?! If you still need to know why you should do it, have a look at this video by Hazelnuttygames. Not only is it the most beautiful fishing pole in the game but, if you unlock its perks, you will be rewarded with a amazing abilities like water walking. How can you unlock its perks? By fishing, duh!
You have to continue fishing those same rare fish you caught to unlock the artifact (as described in Sisqi’s post).
I guess that everybody has his own favorite fishing spot, so let me share mine.
Where to go
When it comes to catching a maximum of rare fish in a minimum of time, I always go close to Valdisdall, in a place called Ashild’s Bay. Not only is it filled with Stormray schools, but it also is pretty calm when it comes to hostile mobs.
What to do
- Use an Arcane Lure and fish in Fevers of Stormrays until you get an Ancient Vrykul Ring;
- Use the ring which will allow you to fish in Oodelfjiskenpools;
- Try to catch as many Oodelfjisk as you can. The pool won’t disappear until the end of the buff from the ring;
- Don’t forget to keep an Arcane Lure up, even when you fish for Oodelfjisk, the Ancient Vrykul Ring can drop from these pools as well. It will allow you to continue fishing from the pool without having to go back to the Fevers of Stormrays to get a new ring.
This is how many Oodelfjisk I usually catch during the 6 minutes of the Ancient Vrykul Ring buff.
If you plan on following this technique, you shouldn’t put any point in Stormray Angling. At least, until you’re done with collecting all the rare fish you need to unlock your artifact completely.
Stormray Angling will allow you to fish an entire school of Stormrays in one cast, preventing you from getting any Ancient Vrykul Ring. I had put 3 points in that perk and I couldn’t get a single ring anymore.
If you have already attributed points to that perk, you can have your artifact talents reset (and your ressource refund) by the same NPC who already does it for your other artifacts, at your class order hall. Unfortunately, it’ll cost you 750 artifact power.
You can put your points in any perk, just not Stormray Angling.
The most efficient way to stock up on Arcane Lure is to find a fishing raid through the premade tool.
More people will fish Mark of Aquaos, which will allow you to fish more Drowned Mana. Also, fishing raids are fun, you can finally group up with people in a relax environment.
Finally, you can then exchange your Drowned Mana to Margoss for pets, toys, mounts, reputation and Arcane Lure.
Voilà, I hope that it will help you unlock all the perks of this awesome fishing artifact.
