[Top 15] Final Fantasy 14 Best Fishing Spots

Final Fantasy 14 Best Fishing Spots

Combat and end-game raiding are not the only important aspects of Final Fantasy XIV, but there are other others as well. The crafting and collecting systems, for example, are just a few of the many additional features and vocations that players can experiment with. In order to craft, a player would require a large number of exclusive resources that could only be obtained by gathering. Both of these are interrelated and intertwined with one another.

Fishing is one of the three gathering jobs that are currently accessible in the game, and it is one of the most difficult to master. To put it another way, the primary objective of fishing is for the player to hook a bait into their fishing rod, cast their fishing rod into a body of water, and reel any fish that bites them in.

While this appears to be a plain and straightforward process, as players' fisher levels progress, they will get access to a myriad of skills that will aid them in their fishing endeavors. These abilities can assist in obtaining a rare fish through the skill of mooching, increasing the pace of collectability and increasing the possibility of obtaining high-quality fish, decreasing the time it takes for the next fish to bait, and so on. Players will require a certain amount of time and skill in order to master all of these abilities and put them to use at the appropriate time.

This makes fishing just as exciting and challenging a profession as fighting is, especially considering that fishing has its own leveling system that is distinct from the other two gatherers' systems. Because of this, players may have encountered a large number of fishing places during their journey during their fishing adventures in Eorzea.

This article will list out fifteen of the best fishing areas for a variety of reasons, including gorgeous scenery, quick leveling, locations where players may capture attractive decorative fish, and locations where players can catch some pricey fish, among other things.


15. Sullen

The gentle landscapes of Sullen in Lakeland.

Located in Lakeland, Norvrandt, Sullen is one of five fishing hotspots that may be found. Lakeland is the first place that players will encounter in the Shadowbringers expansion, and it is where the story begins. As a result, this location is extremely popular among fishermen looking to level up their level 70 Fisher to approximately 73 to 75.

The following are the reasons why this location is fantastic:

  • Because it is located in a remote part of Lakeland, it is unlikely that many players will frequent there.

  • Lakeland itself is a gorgeous place filled with pastel purple terrain and vegetation, which enhances the fishing experience while also taking in the sights.
