Welcome to the Rare Fish Report thread
Our Purpose: To gather data about Gaia's rare fish and present it to our fellow fishers with the hopes that the information found here will help them in the catching of their own rare fish.
UPDATE: This thread is very old. The data gathered here is only meant to show new fishers the information we have on rare fish. There are no new updates because there is nothing new to report. All the information that is known on rare fish is all that there is in existence. The original purpose of the thread was to gather information to determine if people's theories about rares were correct, and see what else we could find out. Those theories have either been proven true or false, and all information available to us has been discovered.
I wish there was more left to discover and find out, I really do, but there isn't. Unless an update is made to the game that involves rare, that's all there is to it. I'm sorry.
Most people have a general idea about rare fish, little bits of facts and things we've all heard and experienced while we're out fishing. Some of it came from guides, some of it came from theories we had thought up, some of it came from people that looked at the game code long ago.
Rare fish were... pretty rare. In the past, months could go by with only 1 or 2 reports. It seems like times have changed however, there are more and more reports popping up in threads around the forum and elsewhere, with lots of new information.
In this thread I had hoped to gather as much information as possible, from what bait was used, to how the fish moved. Everything we could find, to hopefully see what's changed, if anything, in this new version of Gaia Fishing, and establish possible ways in which people can hunt for rares more efficiently.
Everyone is welcome to post what rares they have caught, as well as discuss their theories and ideas regarding the rare fish.
Thread Rules and Guidelines
Please read these before posting. If you break one of these rules you will be banned from the thread, so just don't do it, ok? Thanks.
I thought this would be obvious, but ABSOLUTELY NO COPYING ANYTHING FOUND HERE. You may ask for permission to use the information, and post it in your own words. If you desire to post it exactly as I have it, please use the "quote" function. You must provide a link to this thread. Just saying my name is not good enough, there must be a link.
No spam. No bumps unless the thread is off the first page of the forum. Spam includes posts that are just smilies/emoticons, and posts that are not related to either rare fish, rare fish prices, or the fishing game in general. The only type of spam that is allowed is a bump to bring the thread back up to the first page of the forum. Please keep in mind that spam can be warned for. I will most likely delete spam in my thread, I will most likely delete posts that are not related to the topic and contribute in no way to the thread. I will most likely delete posts that are just random things when the thread is already on the first page of the forum.
No quoting ANY of the first 5 posts on the first page. If you have something to say, use the POST REPLY button, NOT the "QUOTE" button.
Be NICE to each other. Keep personal drama out.
When reporting a rare catch, please include screenshot proof. If you don't know how to get the screenshot, post and ask. If you don't know what to put in the form, please post and ask, someone will tell you 3nodding
Do NOT PM me your report, POST it HERE. Please and thank you. I'd rather you not PM me at all as my inbox is far too full with moderating related PMs and any regular PMs will quickly get lost and end up ignored among all the confusion.
[If sharing rare fish price information, please post it all in a single post, or make a post, mention that you will be editing it, and edit in all the information you found later.
I don't mind double posts, but don't over do it. Don't make a new post right after your last post if it's not absolutely necessary.
Don't sell your fish here. Caught a rare fish? Great, post it. Bought a rare fish? Great, please post the price. Sold a rare fish? Wonderful, please post the selling price. Want to chat about rare fish prices and the rare fish market or about your efforts and experiences as a rare fish seller or buyer? No problem. Want to sell a rare fish? Go to the Game Item Exchange, don't post here. Want to buy a rare fish? Go to the Game Item Exchange and look for sellers. Don't post here.
I reserve the right to add any more rules as I see fit.
