Of course, you can’t access the necessary parts of the map without first buying into the FFXIV Endwalker expansion. Then, you’ll want to travel to Old Sharlayan, where it’s a quick trip to the crustacean’s watering hole.

From there:

  1. Head West across The Outer Circuit
  2. Stop at the Upper Acrinthos banks (near Labyrnthos)
  3. Use the ‘Gold Salmon Roe’ to fish
  4. Lift your rod once you a single ‘!’
