Find Ramos Jerwan in the Plane of Knowledge (a barbarian near a pool at location -30, +1430) and hail him.

You say, 'Hail, Ramos Jerwan'

Ramos Jerwan says 'Good day traveler... perhaps you have come to help me with my studies?'

You say, 'I can help you with your studies.'

Ramos Jerwan says 'It's quite simple really. I'm interested in studying some aquatic specimens from around the planes... will you take up your pole and give me a hand?'

You say, 'How can I give you a hand?'

Ramos Jerwan says 'There are some particularly interesting cichlid swimming about in the Plane of Nightmare. I also hear the discus in the Plane of Valor are quite plentiful. I need you to bring me two sets of bones from each for study. You do know how to extract them, yes? If not, I believe the lovely Peras Glickon may have something that can instruct you. Best of luck lad.'

Nightmare Cichlid are fished in Plane of Nightmare, and Vallorian [sic] Discus are fished in Plane of Valor. Prepare these as per the standard prepared fish recipe: fish, roots, celandine herb, filleting knife in a tackle box, trivial 182. Give two of each type of bones to Ramos Jerwan.

Ramos Jerwan says 'Ah, you've done quite well. Take this, it's a special gift I recovered from a recent adventure, and I can think of no greater person to keep it than you. Remember if you're in need of fishing supplies, come see us any time.'

The reward is Fisherman's Companion, which summons Brell's Fishing Pole, adds 3% to Fishing skill, and, most importantly, summons ale.

Anziok Bait Dispenser - a device for summoning bait - can buy in Bazaar. Use one fresh fish and get stack of ten bait - they stack to 100 and are not temporary. You can use the fresh fish you catch for an endless supply of bait. Can purchase for 3500 to 6000 Platt.

Anizok's Bait Dispenser will not summon bait, rather, it converts fish into bait.
Not every fish can be converted into bait but most typically make 10.
Ramos has an unlimited supply of Fresh Fish, one will make 10 Homemade Bait.
Homemade Bait now stacks to 250 !
That's fantastic used in league with something like an Extraplanar Trade Satchel.

Wanted to do a simple quest today so I bought a ton of bait and a couple of poles (they break). I headed to the OC camp in PoV first, where I got my fishing up to 115 by the time i caught 3 Vallorian Discus's. Then I went to PoN and already caught 13 Cechlids by the time I reached 151 in fishing.

I was able to do the combines at 151 with no fails, even though I fished for extra Discus and Echlids just to be safe. Had 357 wis and shammy buffs + yaulp 6 put me at 405 dex.

**The prize you get (Fisherman's companion) is NOT A fishing pole** so dont get all worried like i did when you dont see one on your cursor or inventory. It looks like a chest and goes straight to an open inventory or bag slot. Happy ale summoning! :-)

Also, something weird happened when i turned in the bones - my char's helmet and hair disappeared. But as with most graphic bugs, they returned after I zoned.

This has got to be the easiest quest ever..I don't know how the horror stories happened. Used Sneak/Hide to each place, fished for 5 minutes in each place to get both fish, didn't fail any combine. This is with 204(bait) fishing skill. I'd imagine it wouldn't be that much more difficult if your skill was at the trivial level for the combines.

Started fishing in PoV since it's safer than PoN. Started with skill of 110, 13 STACKS of Catch-A-Lot bait using Collapsible Pole yielded 16 Vallorian Discuses (and 8 or 9 Crawdad lol it's fun catching those, it looks like a named mob... You have caught Crawdad.). Didn't want to lose them all so I decided to try filleting regular Fresh Fish, also hoping to gain some skill lvls. Blew 300some pp on 3 stacks of the herbs, bought roots in baz for 5s each (1pp/stack). With 3 stacks of everything, came out with 27 fish bones/prepared fish, gained 2 lvls of fishing. Near 45% success, but I'll wait until I have a full stack of each, then make 2 bones and sell any remaining fish, which are currently going for 100-200 each. After all that my fishing is up to 126. I think it's fun and can't wait to hit PoN =)
Fairly safe spot I found in PoN
# Aug 09 2004 at 5:58 PM Rating: Excellent
A short distance from the waterfall is a small "left then right" turn to the channel. Stand on the west side of it at the point where it comes back left. I fish there with Sneak and Hide active with no mobs agroing on me at all.

For PoV, just follow the south zone wall to the right, when facing it (West). Then, just sit at the end of the River (By the Fiend caves), nothing spawns there, so you'll be safe unless someone is pulling and dies.

As for making the bones, its better to find a good fisherman to do it, the combine very high, so theres always a good chance of failure unless you're an excellent fisherman. All you need is: the fish, a filleting knife (Water Flask + Scaler Mold + Metal Bits - Smithing 76), a roots (talk to a foraging class, we usually have oodles of them), and a celladnine herb (Western trader building in PoK, up to the right from the pond, on the left side of the room, a barb Alchemy vendor).

PoN Cichlid

Just started looking around to find a spot to fish in PoN. Tried the waterfall a few times but i had 3 spiders sitting just besides the river so i couldn't get close enough to the water without getting aggroed. Heard about docks but couldn't find it so i'm posting the location of it here.
Docks in PoN:
It's in the middle of the river on the east side loc (0,0) hehe. Been here for 5 minutes and I i've already gotten 2 Cichlids.
Good luck getting yours.

Well, it is not silly, but it is fun and a nice break from the continual exp grind.

Start your quest in PoK by doing some shopping. Load up a tackle box, a couple of fishing polls and about eight (8) stacks of Catch-O-Lot bait. A stack of bait fits nicely into the ammo slot and then you can head out to PoN or PoV.

A couple of things of note...

I was unable to find the Celandine Herb in PoK. I checked every vendor in the zone and none was to be found. I ended up going to Thurgadin and buying from Hulda in the Thurgadin Exchange. It was slightly above 5pp per herb and a half stack will do just fine (see below).

The skinning knife is easy enough to make when you are in PoK. All of the ingredients are in the zone, but they are scattered. Consult your local druid or elf-type person for roots (again, half a stack is more than enough).

I headed to PoN first. This is the tougher of the two zone in which to fish, IMO. When you zone in, you will be in the GY and facing the zone wall. Run to it and then levitate and invis (if you have that ability). Turn to your left and hug the wall until you reach the small waterfall that turns into the river. You can park yourself just above where the water hits the bottom rocks to start the river. However, be very careful.

Very close to this area is a spawn point to your right of a blood raven (cannot see through invis). To your left will be a return point for a virtulent spider (meaning that when the spider is aggroed and the people flee to the PoT stone to zone out, the spider will return not to the spawn point, but closer to the beginning of the river. If you can stay invis, do so. If not, pull back as far as you can to avoid any aggro. (Note: No matter how hard you try, there will be people who will pull those mobs right over you, invis or not. Just be mindful of groups pulling from the area.)

In PoV, you will zone into the GY and you need to face, again, a zone wall (face away from the wandering spirit in the GY). Go to the wall and hang a sharp left. Follow the wall to the lake. I never saw anything that I was KOS to on my trip. There will be a quest mom to your left and some various neutral (I think) mobs. The worst I saw were the ridgebacks that were scowling and the tree frog near the river that sees me as dubious. Park yourself near the edge of the lake with your back to the zone wall. The only time I had trouble was when a bard decided to kite a ridgeback right over me. /rude

As for the fishing, be prepared to catch lots of fresh fish, fish scales, sandals, etc. The two types of fish you need are uncommon, but you can get at least two every 30 minutes if you have a fishing skill above 100.

Immediately after catching one of the fish needed, I immediately do the combine in the tackle box. With a fishing skill of 146, I was able to get to bones of each type (4 total) in about 10 tries. If you succeed, you will get the bones, Prepare Fish and your skinning knife returned. If you fail, you get your skinning knife returned. I found that you can easily complete this quest with a little patience and very little money.

I did check out the Bazaar for the bones and while they were plentiful, I wasn't willing to pay on average 400 pp per attempt (Lanys T'Vyl server).

I returned the two sets of each bone type to Ramos and was given the Fisherman's Companion. It will be in your inventory and will look like a treasure chest. You must put this in an open inventory slot (not in a container) to cast it. Ten (10) seconds later, you get Brell's fishing pole. If you want the free ale, you must equip the fishing pole and 2.5 seconds later, it's Happy Hour.

I think the total time I spent on the quest was about two hours. The biggest time sink was scouring PoK looking for the Herb which, I am convinced, is not a regular part of the selling table on the fishing supplies people in PoK. I could have saved myself a good 30 minutes by just going to Thurgadin.

Good luck, have fun, get your Fisherman's Companion and have a cold one for me!

Was trying this today and havent been able to fish yet. Just as Althairic says, there is a spider that comes here sometimes and he does see through invisi. Also there seems to be 2 ravens there instead of just one. The good news for Necros, SKs and Monks is that you can FD and still fish!

The herb is sold in the Western trader building in Plane of Knowledge. The room is to the left of the room with the three dark elven poison merchants. The barbarian male on the far left in the room sells the herb. The icon is like Grave Moss and is around 5.5 platinum a piece.

Get 2 Nightmare Cichlid Bones and 2 Vallorian Discus Bones, either by buying them from the Bazaar or by fishing and preparing them. Then hand them *unstacked* to Ramos Jerwan (a barbarian near the pool in Plane of Knowledge at location -30, +1430) so all 4 slots of the trade window are filled. In return he hands you the Fisherman's Companion.

if your a forager do both at the same time hit fishing then hit forage. you cannot hit forage then fishing it wont work that way dont ask me why. you get the vegetables for other recipes and the crawdads roots fish ect. water. it all works together.

The reason is simple. You can't Fish if you have something on the cursor. So if you Forage successfully, it blocks the ability to Fish since you have something in your hand. If you Foraged, but found no food or water, you'd then be able to hit Fishing straight away. Smiley: drunk

I find teh bones listed in the bazaar all the time - some go a tad rediculous at 200p+ per bone but hey just dont buy em.

I was buying bones at 75p per and then selling the quest for 500p :)....made lots of friends and also 2kp :) in about half hour.

Another mate said he had the price at 1kp and was still moving them - the guilt set in though.

Either way yah do it...much simpler then getting to PoV or PoN and setting up for fishing when a nice MOB can come up behind yah a smack yah silly (jk).

Anyway gl and gh.

If you have feign death you can use it, and still fish wile laying on the ground.

spent a few hours in PoN doing this. made 3k selling at 150p per bone.

Times on Fish

Ok, I may be nuts, but here is something I have observed:

I think the fish in PoV can only be caught during the day and the ones in PoN can only be caught at night. I went through about 3 stacks of bait in each zone and got nothing at the wrong time of day. But then, bang, it got dark or light and they were jumping onto my line. It was 5AM for the PoV and about 7PM for the PoN fish. Might save you some time and some bait! Good luck!

I (47 rogue) and a friend (47 beastlord) are extremely eager to do this quest. We've pretty much decided to get outside help for the vallorian discus, but would like to get the nightmare chichlid ourselves if at all possible.

Tonight we headed out to PoN (my first time entering the zone, his second). I bumped into a fellow rogue on the way in and asked her if anything in there can see through a rogue's hide and sneak. She said yes, almost everything can (can anyone else please confirm this?) so plan A fell through.

Plan B was to enter the zone and look for a safe spot to fish visibly. After taking one look around (and almost wetting my armor), we decided there was no way to get to the water, let alone hang out and fish, without being brutallly, brutally killed.

So my question is, where on earth do you go to sit down and fish safely long enough to get 2 chichlids? Is there some sort of secret nook away from all the bloodthirsty red cons, or must you simply cast your line and say a prayer?

Fishing on the docks in PoN is safe. I did this quest for a ton of guildies and most of my alts, and I sat on the docks the whole time.

Okay, I've answered my own questions.

The rogue sneak/hide aggro is very strange in PoN. I grouped there today and tested it out, conning each thing we pulled before attacking it. At first I was completely baffled, as it seemed many things would sometimes be scowling and sometimes be indifferent. I THINK I have concluded that some things don't see through hide at all, and those that can will only see you if they're FACING you, otherwise they will con indifferent.

So, with that in mind, I zoned in and headed south to the small stream that flows east. I stuck to the wall and approched the stream where the 2 treants spawn. When I faced them, they scowled, but when I snuck behind, they didn't. I positioned myself south of the stream, slightly west of the real tree that's just in front of the treant. Both were indifferent from this location. To the north there was a blood raven, and to the south a young bat. Both were also indifferent (and seemed to be indifferent permanently).

Staying hidden, I fished. I went through 3 stacks of Catch-a-lot Bait over the time span of one SoW. I caught 3 Nightmate Chiclid, 3 Waterleaf Scales, a Crawdad, and plenty of the usual (fresh fish, scales, rusty daggers). My fishing skill was 119 when I started, and 125 when I finished.

I was never attacked.

Hope this helps!

I believe what happened when you tested your hide/sneak combos on some mobs was that when behind a mobs back while in sneak mode you are technically invisible to them, that's what sneak is good for. It changes the con to indifferently and is very useful for training with dubious guildmasters.

Aye, I knew about training with angry guild masters and buying from racist merchants, but this was the first time I had encountered an NPC that could see through hide&sneak while facing them :)

Apparently it's a widely known fact that monsters who can see you from the front can't see you from the back. 4 years of playing, and I never knew that ;P It has come in handy several times since I learned.

Celandine root is an expensive (5pp or so each) herb purchased from alchemy vendors, and can be perchased from Sverig O'Danos in POK,

I would guess the boning of the fish is trivial around 170-180 at fishing. I was boning these around 160 and it wasn't trivial and it did take a few tries...

Bought the MQ for this (Not PoV flagged, I liked the ale part) for 200pp (The guy was being nice to me, he was selling it for 300pp normally) and I got this. Started out with 19 fishing skill on Thursday. Now around 60 (And Alcohol Tolerance 89! *BUUUURRRRPPP!!!!*) and I personally like Gunthak to fish in. As I am a baker, I hope to one day catch a few stacks of Gourami and cook em.

Bow down.... to Ale!

Very Easy Quest

This was very easy to do with a fishing skill of 200. It took me less than a stack and 1/2 of bait to get the fish and Foraged roots in no time. If you are looking for the celandine herb you can find it in room right above Ramos Jerwan at LOC neg27, pos1383 from Severg ODanos for about 5pp each. I usually see Fileting knives for about 5pp in bazaar as well. All in all it took me maybe an hour to do tops. Well worth it for fishing pole that summons Ale. I can now become the Drunken Fisherman I have always aspired to do in EQ.

The docks in PoN are safe, once you get to them. They are usually camped as well, and it's doubtful a group would mind you fishing while they hunted.

Another note: the bones are all droppable, you don't have to do the fishing yourself to do the quest.

My experience on the docks were different Daeanor. I was sitting there waiting on a couple of peeps to start killing, and a big lag spike hit. About 4 seconds later it cleared up, MA was on the ground, and a werewolf was all over our ranger. Anyway, bard and I jetted out of there as fast as possible. I forgot what the name of the WW was, a nightmare stalker or something. Conned red to me I believe when I was 55. Been a while, anyway, I hope this helps.

The specific fish needed for this quest are definitly a bit more rare than the rest of the stuff you reel in. Took me at least 6 stacks of bait(Catch-a-lot bait) before I had 2 of each fish. The PoN fishing was the only dangerous part to this quest. I found it easiest to fish invised near a static Bloodraven just by the waterfall. Just remember to run off a bit to reinvis. In PoV I just ran along the zone wall from GYard till I found a lake. Nothing there was KOS to me and I did my fishing in peace.

Great quest to do for the time and risk involved.

I've gotten my fishing up to 15x in a short time since I've been LFG more often with PoP out. It stinks when I break my fishing pole in PoN or PoD and have to run back to PoT to pick up another one. The quest is pretty simple if you have a decent fishing and smithing skill. I already had a filleting knife which I used to get my baking up to 135. The cast time for the ale is 2 seconds so you can have a stack pretty quick :)

The best thing about this item

Broken pole? Click another one.
Now I just need a grub summoner. Bard forage is not very reliable.
RE: The best thing about this item

Update: Got mine within a week of getting flagged for PoV. The river across from the razorfiend cave turned out to be a safe place to fish.
Level?
# Nov 08 2002 at 2:18 PM Rating: Default
It says that the minimum level is 60. Obviously people below 60 are gaining this item, as the person above is level 55.

Is there a way for a 51st level get to the river/lake (watersource) in the two planes and fish solo without having to fight Planar mobs??

well, to get to the fish in PoV isnt the problem, nothing there will agro on you if you keep to the wall. but unless you are 59 or 60, you arent likely to pass the trial which gives you access to this plane. hence, it's a lvl 60 quest.

Yep, the level 60 assumes you're doing the entire quest yourself. It is possible to do the trial in PoJ to get you into PoV lower than 60 though, I'vee seen people as low as 52 trying it. It's be difficult though.

Though it's extroidianrily dangerous, you can fish for the cichlids in PoN as low as 45. I did it at 49... little trick, you can actually fish while feigning death, if you position yourself right! The blood ravens and bats are at fixed positions so are pretty easy to avoid, but keep your eyes open for wandering treants and the ocassional spider.

If you can't finish the trial, try hanging around PoT and see if anybody will give you or sell you the valorian discus.

Actually, you can't fish in PoN til you're 46, cause you can't get in until at least 46.

As of 11/05/02 This quest may be broken. On Bertoxx, I turned in the fish bones (2 of each) and got nothing in return. GM said they are looking into it.

Plain old foraged roots. Just ask your favorite Druid, Ranger or Bard for a few.

Or any iksar or wood elf. I forage these all the time, usually just immediately eat them to extend the life of my stat-bearing food.

Oh my lord do those people need to do some thinking. Disciple Symbol of Brell Serillis quest gives you a small +wis neck item and also has unlimited summon Brell's Blessed Stout. Once you have the symbol you can throw a party anywhere you want one :)
