Strange Catch is considered a common Trade goods item.

Item description[edit | edit source]

"It might be some sort of fish, but best not to look too closely."

Game note: You may find these useful in combat against Voracious beasties.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

The most reliable method is to kill a Jillyfish, or to buy them in SS irem portgaz.png Irem or Hideaway for 25 x SS echosmall.png Echoes, but many Random Events will also award a SS carcasssmall.png Strange Catch. Expand the tables below for more details.
