Everything you'll need to know about where and how to catch, value, and EPIC effects!!
Ok, so here is a compiled list of all the best info we have gathered so far....
You can catch Boss Fish with Boss Bait available for purchase at the item store. Boss Bait costs 100 stars for 50 baits. Boss Bait will increase the frequency of bites from the Ancient Fish you are trying to catch.
FTF will work on the Ancients, however, about the time you fill the Skill bar, the fish will go "blue". At this point it is best to stop FTF and follow the fish with your rod tip. If you continue to FTF, the line will break!!
The Ancients are available at different times and different locations. It is recommended to change the time zone on your phone or tablet either ahead or behind depending upon the fish you are looking to catch and the "biting time" (the biting time posted by GAMEVIL and the actual biting time in your time zone may vary by one hour).
Have at least a full hour to designate to this battle as you will need it and then some! Most fish have not been caught within the allotted hour. This is where the adjustment of time zone comes in handy...
after battling for the hour, adjust your phone/tablet back another hour. You should pick up on the same fish, at the same site, with the same health left. More on that to follow....
When the battle begins, the health bar will be blue instead of green. This blue bar is the first 20% of the Ancients' health. You will likely go through 20-50 boss baits just to get through this first 20%. Battle the Beast through this blue bar and the health bar will become full and green. It is here you can really strike. It seems the Ancient gets a little easier at about 75%. You will likely have to purchase another 50 Boss Baits to complete the catch. You will also be able to RETRY (for 4 stars each) up to 10 times per day. It is recommended you save these RETRY uses for after you have gotten the Ancient below 80%.
