ANCIENT FISH - DINOS *NEW*

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.
Use ss or sss chum to increase bite rate. As expensive as they are, you'll want to make sure to use them wisely.


You will be given up to about a minute to battle the beast every time they bite. Some have shorter times others slightly more. Knock down as much health as possible and repeat the process...more on strategy to follow. If you cannot hook the beast in 3-5 minutes, don't be surprised to see it's health a bit higher than you left it the previous cast. Another reason to make sure to use ss or sss chum.


When the battle begins, the health bar will be blue instead of green. This blue bar is the first 20% of the Ancients' health and the hardest  stage. You will likely go through many 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 the 40% gold reel stage.


Strategy 1:
Ftf for as long as you can filling a skill bar and using it before the beast can counter (blue mode) and before red hook snaps your line. Use the rest of the timer to deal damage in the old fashioned way.

Strategy 2:
Battle the beast the old fashioned way, until the last 15 seconds and then ftf the remaining time using skill bars every chance you get.

There are 4 times per day that you can fish for these beasts: 16-17:00 PST 18-19:00 PST 04-05:00 PST 06-07:00 PST You can catch only 1 of these dinos at each session.

 megalodon is at midnight port. This is the hardest dino to catch and it is at midnight port every sunday. Max effect is elasticity *2 - 7 12* VERY HARD


The rest of the dinos will appear in this order:

Titanichthys / golden viewing platform / AGL +32max. 10*   easy

Plesiosaurus / fog lake /  CON +35max  6*   easy
Xiphactinus /  black rock beach /  CTR +41max.  11*  medium
Leedsichthys /  coral bay /  STR +29max.  10*   medium
Livyatan melvillei / emerald fjord /  rally *2 - 10  12*  hard
Dunkleosteus / whirlpool cave / luck  3 - 13max.  11*   hard
Cretoxyrhina / sunset lighthouse / SKL +40max.  11*   hard
Stellar's sea cow / clam beach / ATT +18max.  6*   easy
Hainosaurus / paho shore / CRI *2 - 8 11*  hard
Predator X / kalde lake / no dive *2 - 7  9*  med/hard
Stomatosuchus / wapo river / ATT +39max  6*   easy
Hybodus / evening sunset wharf / AGL +20max.  6*  easy
Brauchauchenius / jade wharf / serenity *1 - 6  10*  medium
Kronosaurus / manglo river / skill gauge *3 - 13 9*  easy
Ichthyosaurus / riffle valley / luck  3 - 12 max. 6*   easy

Remember, they will follow this order except for on Sunday,when megalodon is at midnight port.


A special thanks to Lasuto for helping put all this together.


Good luck and happy fishing!!!

  1. A bit of the info above is out dated. I will try to get it readjusted in the next few days. BTW, you can catch these ancients from 8-11pm PST and 3-6am PST.

    1. Boss synthetic. Do not waste your time with big boss baits.

  3. hi all, did GV changes the dino fighting time? so what is the new time to fight those dinos? mine usually at 11am - 2pm and 6pm - 9pm GMT +7.. today it bites at 7am GMT +7, this is confusing..

    1. I can confirm that the dino time table has changed. At the moment, I do not know the new times but will start looking. I know that the 2nd appearance of Haino yesterday was still 3AM PST though since I caught one. There have been rumors that it is back to only 1 60 minute timer but I can't confirm as I caught it well under the 60 minutes and stopped playing since my phone was almost dead.

    3. Wow, lucky for you. May be some sort of glitch? Or maybe it changed? I'd. If you sell it, double check that you actually receive 9 stars. Maybe it says 9, but you'll only get 6? Typos are somewhat common with gamEVIL XDXD

      Dinkdink

      Delete
    4. Dinkdink, GamEVIL may have changed the amount that Sea Cow is worth very recently because I sold one a few weeks ago and actually got 9 stars for it also. Also the rotation may have changed because at 3AM PST this morning I saw both Dunkleosteus and Brauchauchenius sites with health bars and timers at the same time.

  7. I don't think you have to catch all the fish to land the dino. Although, I am speaking AFTER catching all the regular fish. I know for monsters, you need all the fish, for dino, I don't think so.

    2. dinkdink is right. You don't need to catch all fish to hook a dino. I've hooked them before I caught all fish at the site.

  11. Love this dino guide Dink. i just caught SSS Hainosaurus 1762.1cm. Took me to top of my friends list. used expensive boss bait, no chum. got it down to 2% then used SSS chum and used my last retry. casted into middle ripple for perfect and bingo. my biggest fish to date.

  12. I share the same Megalodon experience. 3 × SSS chum, 84 boss bait, 30 minutes in and I only got one bite. How do you catch this son of a B???
    can anyone who caught it share their experiences?

    1. Yeah, You should be very very lucky to catch Megalodon Now. It almost impossible to catch it with the short time limit.

      Delete
    2. Eelectro. Your best bet is to wait until they have another x2 bite rate for him. I caught 2 Megalodon during that event. Without the event he is a waste of time, energy, bait, and chum. Luckily for me I got an SSS one so I don't have to hunt him again for IB unless I want too.

  13. I hawe SSS Livyatan melvillei in aquarium. His effect is only raly x2 . and it seys recrive rally x2-x10 witchSSS-rank fish. How can i upgrade effect to x10?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can't upgrade the stats on epic fish and dinosaurs.
      The stats you get is luck based. People usually get the lowest stats possible unless you're really lucky.

      Delete
    2. The only way you can upgrade effect of Dino is TO HUNT ANOTHER BOSS then PUT IT IN YOUR TANK and then PRAY the feking GAMEVIL to give you higher stats each food you feed your BOSS

      :D
      I caught all 3 Haino last Saturday, put all those SS into my tank, and 3 different bonuses from 3 ones: x2 x3 and x5 CRIT

      Good luck

  15. hey guys i caught an ss hainosaurus on 2 april 2014 01:50 gmt+1 and bonus description says strength 7~48 so did the ability changed? im sure it says +critical on most sites

    1. It does change when it reaches SSS, some times a game restart is needed.

      Delete
    2. Haino bonus is *x2~8 CRIT.
      When you feed in the tank to max SSS, log out of game then log in you can see the max bonus that fish has.
      If you already have 1 similar boss in the tank, then the higher effect will highlight, the lower got dark colour in description.

  19. Hi everyone just a quick question I caught a Dunkleo which at SSS gives luck of +3 to +13, I got +3, if I catch another one will the luck level of the 2nd Dunkleo be greater than the one in my tank? or could it be the same or less if the stat was say +5??

    Many thanks

    1. About 40 baits for easy. About 60 baits for medium. About 80 baits for hard. About 180 baits for Megalodon. All need chum(s). We don't save for boss baits. We buy them on sales.

    1. I really like new option, help a friend catch Dino, it is very helpful for those who are poor or low-level

      Just cast and get bite from Dino, then leave and go back to help a friend and get rewards, allowed only 10 times, and if you are lucky other partners have succeeded in capturing the dino to you ....

      Delete
    2. Just to add some useful info ... make sure u hook a SSS rank dino b4 u stop casting and let your frens catch it. Any of your fren helping will catch the exact same dino u last hooked. Very useful for IB completion.
      Another thing is .. try to hook the dino during 1st castoff .. it seems that if your dino is still alive after 1st castoff time ended it will be carried forward to nxt castoff .. meaning u dont have to re-hook it for the other 3 castoffs. This give u more chance of getting the dino killed by your frens as not all your frens will be on9 at same time.

    1. @neillydc

      i can confirm that if your last hooked dino is SSS rank .. your frens helping will definately catch the exact same SSS dino (even the size).
      In your case of getting S rank dino from your fren catching it, most probably u were also casting at that time and your last hooked dino was S rank.
      Try it out with easier dino, where u are sure some frens can catch it for u. For tougher dino its better if u take the dino's health down 30-50% first then hook an SSS and wait.
      So far all the SSS dino i hooked and let my frens catch it, i end up with SSS dino (exact same size too). Come join Live Chat during 1st dino castoff (most players are around for 1st castoff usually) and u will be able to get help and coordinate to get your SSS dino.
