No longer available in PoK, by the pond.. This really sux.. Especially for lower level players.. :-( Think this is a real same to make it so hard to find fish scales... If fishing is not your trade skill, it is such a waste of time trying to get a stack of scales between sandles, nothing, and an occaisional fish.. *sigh*

There is a trader at Western buildings that sells fish scales. It's one of the dudes fishing there; not the barbarian - the other guy.

I just checked him. He doesn't have any now. You must have been fortuneate enough to browse his wares after an angler sold them off.

These can also be found on Pygmy Barracuda, located in East Cabilis.
POK: Fishing Trough
# Nov 13 2005 at 8:18 AM Rating: Decent
There is a fishing trough in Western POK, between the Guild Hall and the Bazaar. You can fish there and get the usual: fish, fish scales, etc.

# Mar 27 2005 at 4:17 AM Rating: Decent
Those fish scales look strangely like a headless fish. =/.

Also sold in the Freeport Casters Guild by Lysin Smokkan. Think that they are sold on the docks... but am KOS... so am not going to check :)

There is a vendor in Jagged Pine that sells these. She is located in the same building as the banker.

Absolutely correct, starting my kedge raid and not looking foward to the fishing, thanks to you I can put my rod and tackle box away. Name of merchant is Selia Wetstone, in bank building just like Iceyeyez said =)

Anyone wanna post something worthwhile
# Jan 09 2003 at 5:43 PM Rating: Default
Like which vendors sell these?

#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 03 2002 at 3:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Although the game has been around for 3 years items are constantly changed and revised fish scale was on the site already. This "is" as stated a updated item. Unitl you have tried to keep up a site of this magnitude I would be very careful of your insults. Ohh and bye the way flame all you want I will not check this post again you are wasting your time. Then again so am I.

Well I think it's pretty obvious from the weight that these were intended for a monk. :)
Whoops, meant 1sp...

Whoops, new to the pricing deal, and meant to say 1sp from various vendors...

Depends on your CHA and Faction of course. Bat wings sell for more, but it's amazing how you can sell both fish scales and bat wings in the Bazaar for 5gp each! It's like 90% profit or more, if you buy them in Freeport and sell them in the Bazaar.

Yes, you can get them fishing
# Dec 02 2002 at 10:57 PM Rating: Good
Yes, one can obtain fish scales by fishing. Almost everytime I've fished on Norrath I've gotten fish scales. I haven't fished on Luclin though :)
# Dec 02 2002 at 9:30 PM Rating: Default
What level do you have to be to wield these fish scales? And why didn't the submitter include a picture?
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 02 2002 at 8:24 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The Game has been around for 3years plus and this item is just being entered? Just goes to show you how people take things for granted.
# Dec 02 2002 at 8:22 PM Rating: Default
I think this item wins the award for oldest "new" item. :P
