So I did my fishing tutorial quest this morning. Never messed with fishing in beta, but was just messing around. I bought a fishing rod, 10 worms and a hook. Did I actually need to buy the hook? I couldn't equip it anywhere and didn't use it, but I was able to complete my levequest. Was it being used and I didn't know it?

the copper hook and other variations are used to make permanent lures with.. like the Chocobo Fly or Crow Fly

I much prefer the perm lures.. and so far, the fish aren't picky about bait, although if it says freshwater bait.. I think it doesn't even let you cast it in saltwater.

You do need the hooks to fish, you just don't have to equip them. They will be consumed as you fish. At least that's how it worked in beta.


edit: this is wrong, I'm mistaken

I'll give the hook to my retainer and give fishing a try again. I'll post the results here.

Are you sure on that, because I remember that you couldn't equip them, but if you tried to cast it would say you need a hook. Admittedly I haven't seen that message since closed beta, they might have changed it and I just kept buying hooks...

No, the bait itself is still the hook. I've been fishing since release with only bait. The made Lures need the Copper Fish Hook and the like.

Absolutely sure, you don't need any hooks for fishing. Just Rod + Bait.
