Our guide will provide you with tips on how to get Jhinga in FFXIV, including its exact location.

FFXIV: How to Get Jhinga

Jhinga is an ocean fish that inhabits an area off The Thavnairian Coast, which is an area in the Ilsabarad region. The exact coordinates of the Jhinga inhabitat are the following:

  • x9.7 - y33.3 (Hole Level 81).

Note that players are required to own the "Tome of Ichthyological Folklore - Ilsabard and the Northern Empty" in order to be able to fish there. It can be purchased from the Splendors Vendor at the city of Radz-at-Han (x11.3 - y9.1), which is also located in the Ilsabarad region. The tome will cost you 16 regional folklore trader tokens.

Jhinga cannot be caught using any type of bait, but only these two types:

  • Mackerel Strip.
  • Versatile Lure.

Mackerel Strip can be purchased from Anna or Diana at the Firmament, and from Lor Ul at Il Mheg or Sanana at The Ruby Sea. In either case it will cost you 5 Purple Gatherer Scrips.

Versatile Lure can be purchased only from Merchant and Mender at Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks for 300 Gil.
