Players will no longer be penalized for failing their first attempt at the Rescue the Lok Revenant quest of Nym's Themepark. Fishing General The Fishing Total - Type and Fishing Total - Planet sections in the Hobbies tab of the Collections window display the total count of non-collection fish the angler has caught, broken down by the 7 fish types, by the 10 planets. It is not retroactive. Fishing Leaderboard The fishing leaderboard period is weekly and starts/ends every Thursday at 19:00:00 GMT / 11:00:00 PST / 12:00:00 PDT (same time as the GCW rank and leaderboard update). At the end of the period, the winners are determined, and the list (and everyone's fishing leaderboard score) is reset to start a new period. On TC/TCP, fishing leaderboard tracking will start Thursday September 23 2010 at 19:00:00 GMT / 12:00:00 PDT, and the first set of winners will be determined the following Thursday September 30 2010 at 19:00:00 GMT / 12:00:00 PDT. The total length of the best 10 non-collection fish caught during the fishing leaderboard period are used to determine the angler's fishing leaderboard score. The total length of the best 25 non-collection fish caught during the fishing leaderboard period by the members/citizens of the guild/city are used to determine the guild/city fishing leaderboard score. An angler that has just joined a guild/city will not contribute to the guild/city fishing leaderboard for her guild/city for the current period. She will start contributing to her guild/city fishing leaderboard at the start of the next fishing leaderboard period. Whenever the angler/guild/city position on the fishing leaderboard for the current period changes, a message is sent to the chat/guildchat/citychat window for the angler/all guild members/all citizens notifying of the position change for the angler/guild/city. In-game mail is sent to the anglers/guild leaders/mayors of the winners when a fishing leaderboard period ends, and the winners for the angler/guild/city leaderboards are determined. Use any fishing pole to view the fishing leaderboard. The Fishing Leaderboard section in the Hobbies tab of the Collections window displays the count of how many times the angler has made the fishing leaderboard winners list. The Fishing Leaderboard section in the Badges tab of the Collections window displays badges the angler has earned from the fishing leaderboard. Badges are granted for winning 1st place, and for making the fishing leaderboard winners list 1 time, 5 times, 10 times, 15 times... The Fishing Leaderboard section in the Hobbies tab of the Collections window displays the count of how many times the angler was a guild member/citizen of a guild/city that made the fishing leaderboard winners list. The Fishing Leaderboard section in the Badges tab of the Collections window displays badges the angler has earned for being a guild member/citizen of a guild/city that made the fishing leaderboard winners list. Badges are granted for being a guild member/citizen of a guild/city that won 1st place, and for being a guild member/citizen 1 time, 5 times, 10 times, 15 times... of a guild/city that made the fishing leaderboard winners list. The angler must have been eligible to contribute to the guild/city fishing leaderboard score (i.e. did not just recently join the guild/city) for the period for which the guild/city made the fishing leaderboard winners list AND must have actually caught a non-collection fish during the period (even if that non-collection fish does not end up contributing to the guild/city winning score), in order to qualify to receive credit for being a guild member/citizen of a guild/city that made the fishing leaderboard winners list. The guilds and cities in the most recent winners list will be given access to 1 guild/city travel point. The guild/city travel point privilege is revoked if the guild/city does not make the next winners list. To reiterate, the guild/city travel point privilege is only available to the guilds and cities in the most recent winners list. Fishing Record For each galaxy, best length fish is tracked for each of the 70 non-collection fish (7 fish types x 10 planets). The angler who catches a non-collection fish whose length is greater than or equal to the current record will become the new record holder. Personal best is also tracked for each angler for each of the 70 non-collection fish. Use any fishing pole to view the galaxy best, the angler's personal best, and the personal best of another targeted angler. A record fish will be renamed to designate it as a record fish, and its Examine window will contain additional record fish information. A "Record Data" radial menu is available on any non-collection fish that will display the galaxy best and the angler's personal best information for that particular fish type. Titles (70 available) are granted to the current record holder. When there is a new record holder, the title will be removed from the current record holder and granted to the new record holder. Badges (70 available) are granted for catching a record fish. Badges are granted for catching 1, 5, 10, 15, ..., 100 record fish. A collection under the Fishing Record section in the Hobbies tab of the Collections window displays the count of record fish caught by the angler. 7 collections (1 for each fish type), with server first and a badge as reward, under the Fishing Record section in the Hobbies tab of the Collections window are available for catching a record fish of the particular type on all 10 planets. 10 collections (1 for each planet), with server first and a badge as reward, under the Fishing Record section in the Hobbies tab of the Collections window are available for catching a record fish for all the 7 types on the particular planet. All 70 fishing records are currently held by various NPCs. The current record length and which NPC currently holds which record are different for each galaxy. These NPCs are actually quite avid anglers who have recently come out of the closet to reveal their ...errr...ummm... ichthyological tendencies, so it will take some effort to best their records. The angler that becomes the new record holder will get a little visit from the NPC who originally held that particular record, who will have a thing or two to say to the new record holder. There are more NPCs than the 70 available fishing records, so some NPCs will not be record holders on some galaxies. So if Darth Vader is not a record holder on your galaxy, you'll just have to go fishing on a galaxy where Vader is a record holder, if you want to receive a visit from the angling Dark Lord. The ELUSIVE Fish Tales abound of the one that always manages to get away. Are there any truths to these stories, or are they just overactive imagination after too many rounds of Valarian Brandy? There are only 70 ELUSIVE fish (1 for each of the 70 non-collection fish types) for each galaxy. The odds of successfully landing an ELUSIVE fish is much, much, much greater than that of successfully navigating an asteroid field, even if Han doesn't want to hear it. Use any fishing pole to view the ELUSIVE fish list. An ELUSIVE fish will be renamed to designate it as an ELUSIVE fish. Badges (70 available) are granted for catching an ELUSIVE fish. The Dev Team reserves the right to revisit the "only 70 ELUSIVE fish per galaxy" rule once any galaxy has caught all its 70 ELUSIVE fish. Good luck with such an elusive feat/challenge/accomplishment though. For each time that the (very lucky) angler appears on the ELUSIVE fish list, as long as the angler has logged in within the past 90 days, 1 travel point will be granted to the angler's current guild and city for each time that the angler appears on the ELUSIVE fish list. This is a permanent perk. Guild/City travel point update occurs at galaxy restart and at the end of the leaderboard period every Thursday at 19:00:00 GMT / 11:00:00 PST / 12:00:00 PDT, so the perk will not be applied immediately when the angler catches an ELUSIVE fish, but will be applied at the next guild/city travel point update. If the angler leaves/joins a guild/city, the perk will be removed/applied at the next guild/city travel point update. The perk will not transfer with the angler with CTS. The angler must get on the ELUSIVE fish list of the destination galaxy in order to receive the perk.
