Anyone know if anything is gained by using a HQ bait vs a normal quality?

I had no idea there was HQ bait. Maybe Wint or the other higher lvl fishers know. I have always just used the store bought bait.

Yes there are HQ fish. I would assume that there are HQ baits because you can craft baits.

AS a GSM I can't craft HQ bait I've tried. while craftting I've filled up the HQ meter but still says 0% chance to HQ. Not sure if any other craft makes bait or lures.

Culinary makes some bait as well. Perhaps HQ baits dont exist. I was hoping that they would, perhaps increase chance to catch HQ fish.

I don't believe that HQ bait exists. If I remember right getting CUL to 15, you could not HQ crayfish balls. I'm not in game atm to be able to confirm but anyone with CUL can tell you.

I believe Perception increases your chance of HQ gathers.

I have never hit an HQ crawfish ball (Cajun style people!) on my CUL...though I didn't really cook for very long.

And yes, PERCEPTION is the HQ factor in gathering. I use Jack O' Lanterns when I fish and it does help...along with gear upgrades. This also directly impacts mooch rates... and the dreaded double mooch rates.

perception is all that matters.

ive never seen hq fishing bait, ill have to check my crafting log to see if there is even a possibility of it. or ill attempt to craft some hq low end bait.

if it does exist its probably a minor perception boost since that's the stat that gets you larger and hq fish catches.


Ive also noticed....I have about 20 different types of seafood (fish) caught from low level fishing (right outside of LL below lv10)

I have cooking up to 20. I can only cook like a few types of fish including bait. Wonder if they plan on adding more fish to the cooking log later? Seems I have a LOT more fish types than I can cook, and im not sure what to do with them (I NPC them to save bag space)

If you catch an HQ fish they can sometimes be mooched into catching even bigger fish. The last fishing quest requires you double mooch (use a goby ball to catch an HQ herring, then mooch that for an HQ Barracuda, then mooch that for the marlin you need).

I've never seen HQ bait, but I've gotten +3 fish at 3200xp per fish in my teens all day long using plain bait and not even wearing anything special. IMO fishing xp is broken.

Say that when you're going from 49-50 and have 538,000xp TNL and are getting 4-5k per fish Smiley: laugh

Yeah but when you ding every 10-15min from 10-20, it's just to fast. i fished for years in xi and didn't get the cap. it's not about getting to 50, it's about getting fish to sell or use for cooking.
