Ghostfish a little too elusive...?

  1. Ellydishes, April 2009:

    I excitedly ran down to River's Heart to fish up the Ghostfish for the new daily fishing quest I received... and have been fishing for nearly two or three hours... not a single Ghostfish. (I know they vanish if I don't eat 'em right away so I've been looking carefully at every catch as they come in...) Has anyone else fared better or worse? I'm close to giving up here!

    I caught it a little closer to the avalanche a few hours ago. At the risk of stating the obvious, were you in a raid group? (It's a quest item.)

  3. Vessanoran, April 2009:

    No problems here. I caught it in 5-6 casts. Where exactly in SB are you fishing?

  1. Ellydishes, April 2009:

    Wow, I guess it never hurts to ask the obvious... I was in a raid group. Argh! Thanks, guys.

  2. The Lich King, May 2009:

    Until patch 3.1.2, These little suckers CANNOT be found in nettlefish pools so don't waste your time pool fishing like i did. As soon as i stopped, i cought one withing 5 casts.
