If you decide to become a Fisher in FFXIV, you’ll need some lures to help you catch those fish. One of your early options for this is to buy Pill Bugs from an NPC named Synehil in Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks (X:6.3, Y:11.9) for 2 gil each.
Though there are plenty of other NPC vendors in the game that sell Pill Bugs, Synehil’s location is the most convenient, since the Fishermen’s Guild is also located in Limsa Lominsa. Pill Bugs all have an item level of 5.

What Are Pill Bugs Used For?
In FFXIV, using lures isn’t as simple as equipping any item to enable fishing. Fish in general are mainly used as crafting ingredients for Culinarians and Alchemists.
Different lures attract different kinds of fish. So the table below lists what you can catch while using Pill Bugs in varying locations.
Note: The Goldenfin in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks can only be caught between 9AM and 2PM Eorzean time.
