    Cloud Fishing? Yoshida was clearly high when he made this stuff.

    Probably, but as a fishing enthusiast, it's totally original stuff. Anyone who can bring a new twist to a classic but admittedly monotonous MMO pasttime is a hero in my book.

    Y: Okay, so here's what we're going to do. So there's like, this cloud or whatever. And what if--just putting it out there, feel free to disagree--this cloud was akin to a sea, and we could "fish" from it, fish of the sky, y'know like birds.
    Everyone else: Iiiiii desu ne. You have the smartz.

    A slight dramatization. But yeah, a hero he is regardless of how this turns out. He took up a project which already had "calamitous" result, pun fully intended. So whatever happens I say good job. He's aware, addresses concerns directly, communicates well with very lengthy posts with the fans, and so on.

    Sand Fishing sounds alittle silly.

    The Ogir-Yensa Sandsea from XII would be an interesting possibility.

    And just when I thought I had removed all memories of that game. Beautiful though, very unique idea. Still, I thought quicksand was terrifying enough without man eating sharks in them as well. XD

    Cloud fishing too! Reminds me of Skies of Arcadia. Slightly tacky but great RPG all the same.

    They clearly didn't think it through when they made the class. I knew they'd have to be able to fish in places other than water, and that borders on absurdity--annd MAAADNESS! :D

    This is pretty much what i was thinking when i read cloud fishing. Maybe you could accidentally catch lightning dressed as cloud too...

    Fun aside, it makes sense to have "unusual" places to fish at later levels, just didn't expect those ones...

    I don't think those are so unusual. Now Volcano Fishing...that would be something amazing!
    BoF4 I believe had a Dragon that swam through the desert and in Skies of Arcadia(Fantastic Game) everything was fished from the skies.
