I updated the timer link and added a second for comparison. They both show the same in-game time, so I don't know what's going on with Bahamut's time. Somehow I thought all the servers were synced to the same time.

the timer code runs off your PC's clock, so adjust your PC time so that eh server time it says is more accurate.

The Goof's guide is good, but unfortunately if you read on, there a fair bit of arguing in it. I'll add it if others think it worthwhile.

I just hit skill level 12 by fishing in East Ronfaure for the Salmon and Trout and it's going real slow. Took me a good four hours for .5 points(the other .5 came from some place else) and .2 of them came from a fluke Giant Catfish in Port San'doria.

I'm using a Composite Rod and Fly Lure. What am I doing wrong?

Use a Glass Fiber Rod. Using a Composite rod is causing you to lose 25% of your catches, and when you actually CATCH the fish, you have a better chance (percentage wise) to skill up. Make sense? =D

Edit: You can (and will) break a Glass Fiber Rod in E Ron, but that's the point. Using the correct rod for your target fish will always cause it to break.. but you get more catches and more skill ups. Usually what you catch between breaks will help pay for the rods (along with resale on Glass Fibers only losing 500g).

The order of the days goes thus:

Fire
Earth
Water
Wind
Ice
Lightning
Light
Dark

As an easy mnemonic, remember FEW WILL D are the initials of the days of the week. Then you just have to remember the first W is water and the second L is light.
