9. Keep Talking Until You're Given the Truly Precious Bait - Tips
Each Pot Noble has Their Own Truly Precious Bait
If you choose to spend 7 scales on both Pot Nobles and talk to them, they'll each give you Truly Precious Bait. The Baits function the same way, but whoever's bait you choose to feed the Great Colored Carp will survive and the other will die.
Other Pot Nobles will Permanently Die
The Pot Noble whose Truly Precious Bait you didn't feed to the Great Colored Carp will perish. You won't be able to talk to them anymore, but their inventory will be added to the turned Pot Noble's.Check Out Points of No Return Here
Surviving Pot Noble will Become a Carp
On the other hand, the Pot Noble whose bait you chose to feed will then become a carp. You'll find them in the body of water near their pots and you can still buy items from them for Treasure Carp Scales.
