To whom it may concern:
MY GOD THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE
wouldn’t it be frightening if you walked into a room and suddenly boss battle type music started playing out of nowhere
So I checked the RF4 wiki and it states that they can be fished from Maya Road (not sure I know Maya Road has one or two tiny ponds) and “Probably in other areas”. That seems a bit vague so I’ve been doing some research.
I got my first two Legendary Scales from Keeno Lake (found in Selphia Plains and this was when I had just started the game), first scale was with a cheap rod and second was using the gold rod. (Could be dumb luck) I noticed the shadows are smaller than shrimps shadows.
I got 3 scales in a row in Sercerezo Lake using my Platinum rod (I also used water walking shoes so I can “chase” fish deeper into the lake.) I find fishing in Sercerezo easier though (really small shadows can either be sardines or gibelio not that I mind the shrimp in Keeno) and having access to catching fish like Throbby Snapper (Sashimi from it is a “loved” gift of Dylas for anyone trying to romance him), Taimen and Glitter Snapper, Sun and Lamp Squids (Salted Lamp Squid is a “loved” gift of Leon) are added bonuses.
I caught Legendary Scales from Keeno Lake and Sercerezo Lake. If anyone is wondering how to get Legendary Scales and want an alternative to Maya Road.
You need 90 Forge Skill to use it though…
Good to know! I found one in Autumn River with a famous pole and haven’t found another one since.
