With the new features of the Housing System, you can now obtain exclusive shark mounts, a Move SPD +60% and a Move SPD +90% version. The steps are rather simple, but the whole process is very time consuming. Anyways, here is how you can get the shark mounts for free!
A quick preview on where you can find these mounts. In short, you can exchange them inside the Adventure Encyclopedia.
They are located under the Special Item tab, in the Special Reward category, among other items. Scroll down until you find them. Silverwave Shark and Great Ocean Shark are what you are looking for!
To exchange these shark mounts, you will need some Core of Knowledge. Silverwave Shark requires 10 Cores, and Great Ocean Shark requires 30 Cores. Sounds easy, right. Well, kind of, but not really! How do you get them? Here comes the process that is very time consuming.
First, let’s go through a Housing function quickly. No in-depth information regarding the Housing System is given here, that is intended for another guide!
Now, assuming that you have already unlocked the Housing function, you can enter a Farm, where you will be doing most of your hard work.
You will then be teleported to your Farm, Thousand Water Marsh. There you will find a few School of Fish, and a Cottage Fish; you don’t need to worry about it as for now, we will get to it soon!
Your main focus now is on the School of Fish. You can fish up Perch, Warrior Perch, Wise Perch and Noble Perch. They all contain various of items, including items that you can consume to increase your Housing Level. Of course, the Noble Perch has the item that is relevant.
By fishing up Noble Perch and opening it, you may obtain Crystal of Knowledge and Spirulina with Shrimp, among with other things.
Spirulina with Shrimp is the bait you need in the next step, so do not sell them! You will need to collect as many Crystal of Knowledge as you can for now, you will need them very soon! You should also be very careful handling them, because you can consume them to increase your Housing EXP; so be careful not to click on them accidentally!
After you have collected 10 of these Crystals, it is time to move on to the next step! Find the Anglers Anonymous Agent, Nidal near the lake, talk to her to exchange 10 Crystal of Knowledge for 1 Fish King Hatchling Bag. Be careful not to exchange for a normal Hatchling Bag in the first dialog, just navigate to the Next!
In the next dialog page, you can exchange for 3 different types of Fish King Hatchling Bags. They contain different levels of Fish King, but it does not matter which one you pick, unless you also want to fish up higher level Fish King.
Whichever you pick, as long as it is a Fish King Hatchling Bag, you will have a chance of receiving a Royal Perch Hatchling, which we will raise to Fish King. All of them have the same chance of getting the Royal Perch Hatchling!
Now it is time we use our Cottage Fish. Right click on the Cottage Fish, and a Hatchling window will open up. Insert the Royal Perch Hatchling you have just received to start growing it. Different types of Fish King require different times to grow, they usually take about 2 to 3 minutes to complete the growing process. For our Royal Perch, it is 3 minutes grow time.
Click on Fortify to begin the process, and come back after 3 minutes. During this time, you can leave the area, and even go offline. The Fish King will remain there when you come back.
When it is completed, you can now equip the bait Spirulina with Shrimp you have obtained earlier. Other baits will not work! Click on the Cottage Fish to open up the Fishing interface, and get ready to fish. Here you always have 3 Fish Kings, it is a fixed amount and applies to all types of Fish King.
Be careful not to click on the Release button, because then you will release your Fish King, and the counter will be reset to zero.
We are getting close! After you have fished up Royal Perch, open it and you have a chance of receiving a Core of Knowledge mentioned earlier!
Finally, repeat these steps until you acquire 10 or 30 Cores, depending which shark mount you are going for, and exchange them in the Adventure Encyclopedia!
To put this in short, you will need:
- Fish and open Noble Perch to obtain Crystal of Knowledge.
- Every 10 Crystal of Knowledge can be exchanged for 1 Fish King Hatchling Bag.
- Open the Fish King Hatchling Bag to obtain Royal Perch Hatchling.
- Each Royal Perch Hatchling spawns 3 Royal Perch.
- Open Royal Perch to obtain Core of Knowledge.
- Repeat the above process until you collect enough Cores!
And last but not least, it is all about RNG. Best occasion I had was receiving 1 Core of Knowledge per 3 Royal Perch, other times can take up to 10, even 15 to get one. So you will have to be patient. For an exclusive shark mount, it is definitely worth the effort!
Alright, that is about all!
Good luck and have fun catching the sharks!
