FFXIV: The Feast Of Famine Quest Guide (Where to Catch)

Final Fantasy 14‘s “The Feast of Famine” questline is notoriously one of the most arduous and time-consuming questlines.

In Limsa Lominsa, the objective is to capture living legends, the rarest fish in existence, and deliver them to Wawalago.

There are two preconditions for the beginning. First, you must be a fisherman of level 50. After reaching level 50, you must fulfill the quest “The Beast of Brewer’s Beacon” from Sisipu on the Lower Decks of Limsa Lominsa.

“The Feast of Famine” can then be obtained from Wawalago at Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks (X:8.1, Y:15.3).

The initial objective of this mission is to capture legendary fish caught in La Noscea, the Black Shroud, and Thanalan.

These fish have a multitude of requirements regarding the time of day, the weather, and feeding.

The First Batch Of Living Legends

Before attempting to capture these fish, ensure that you have level 50 fishing equipment. The more it heightens your perception, the better it is.

In fact, eating food to increase your stats while fishing for these legends is strongly advised. Lastly, ensure that your gathering points are at least 397.

These fish are not required to be caught in a specific order.
