After the update these things are crazy for silica. Just make a small underwater cave base near one of the big caves and collect all of the silica. You can get 50 pearls from one node if you pump melee. Just watch out for eels
Not sure if it's a PC thing but eels and jellys can knock you off on Xbox and kill your little lite brite. However they are amazing at getting pearls in the little river on Ragnarok. Haven't tried going after the black pearls yet.
Very indurable and weak. Its only purpose is to collect pearls and kill babies for angler gel. Fast, but has no armor, the only armor it can rely on is imprint bonus and mate bonus. Good as first water mount, bot recommend for an actual warfare.
Pearls are now easy af to farm with this little fella. Glad to see him finally get a unique ability. One of the most intresting fishes IRL but in game was always forgotten unless you wanted gel! NOW EVERY ALPHA HAS ONE Lvl slight weight and melee and speed and you have thousands of pearls in mere minutes
Must have tame for silica pearls, in my server (island) people have blocked off the pearl spawn in the east leaving just the ocean pearls. Using one of these bad boys, I swim just south of Easter island and to the west of there, I come back with over 5k pearls in less then 30 min. I don't recommend using the angler as a fighter though only go after other anglers if it's safe to do so
