Fishing

From EOGamer Lineage 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Fishing offers a different experience from combat and leveling up. Not only is fishing a great way to relax, you can also catch ingredients for item creation.

Fishing equipment and/or the Fishing skill can be acquired along with other newly added common skills from the Fisherman’s Guild Members dispatched at the grocery store or port of each town.

You will need a Fishing Rod and lures to go fishing. These items can be bought from the store or earned through quests. Fishing rods and Fishing Shots exist by grade (no grade, D, C, B, A, S) and item damage will be applied according to grade. A penalty will be applied when using a fishing rod of a grade incompatible with your character level.


Fishing Skills

You must master the Fishing skill in order to begin fishing. You can acquire Reeling, Pumping, and Fishing Mastery skills by speaking with the Fisherman’s Guild Members stationed in each town or port.

Fishing Shots

Although not essential for fishing, Fishing Shots will assist you with your fishing. Fishing Shots, like spiritshots and soulshots, can be accessed by double-clicking on them in inventory or registering with shortcuts. The Fishing Shot grade must be compatible to that of the fishing rod, and they can also be earned through quests.

How to Fish

The Fishing Rod is equipped in the weapon slot and the bait in the left hand, like an arrow. Once you equip the rod and use the Fishing skill, you begin to fish.

Once fishing is under way, the Fishing Window will display and an enlarged image of the bobber will appear.

Reeling.jpg

The fishing skills Pumping and Reeling determine fishing success. These skills can also be mastered by paying adena to the Fisherman’s Guild Members. Use the Reeling skill while the fish struggles and resists (the bar is moving forward), and the Pumping skill while the fish is exhausted (the bar is standing still).

When fishing is under way, the Fishing Window will display. When a fish begins to bite, the HP gauge of the fish and the time allotted to catch it will appear in the Fishing Window. Fishing is successful only if the HP of the fish drops to 0 before the time expires.

Upon successful fishing, fish or treasure chests will be added to the inventory, fishing will end and the Fishing Window will close. When an attempt at catching fish fails, fishing will end and the Fishing Window will close. Fishing will also end if the Fishing skill is re-used during fishing.

If you double-click on fish or treasure chests acquired while fishing, they will turn into other items. These items can be used in common crafting, and certain items can be exchanged for Proof of Catching a Fish with the Fisherman’s Guild Member.

Fishing holes are home to fish abundant enough to enable fishing. Fish usually inhabit waters where the breathing gauge is displayed or regions with unique water quality such as the Goddard Hot Springs. Be wary, as monsters instead of fish may be caught with fishing!

Increasing Fishing Mastery enables catching of higher grade fish. However, higher grade fish are stronger and brighter than lower grade fish, so advanced Reeling and Pumping skills are required to catch them.

A Fishing Manual that provides fishing instructions can be purchased from the Fisherman’s Guild Member. Beginner tips will be provided when fishing with beginner bait. Beginner bait can be bought from the Fisherman’s Guild Member.

If Reeling/Pumping skills exceed Fishing Mastery by more than 2 levels, a penalty will be imposed.

Night Fishing

Night fishing can be done from 12:00 a.m. to 06:00 a.m. (game time). Game time can be viewed by typing /time.

Luminous Bait is necessary for night fishing and may be purchased through a Fishermen Guild Member. Luminous Bait can only be used at night. When fishing at night and using Luminous Bait, high quality (high-grade) fish will be tempted to bite.

A high-grade fish can use deceptive skills unlike ordinary fish. When a high-grade fish uses its deceptive skills, reeling and pumping must be used in the opposite way in order to reduce the fish’s HP.

Depending on its type, a high-grade fish may reward you with various “Fish Scale” drops. If you collect enough “Fish Scale” of the same type, you may bring them to a Fishermen Guild Member for additional rewards.

Depending on your fishing mastery level, the types of high-grade fish that can be caught and rewarded fish scales will differ.

Fisherman’s Potions

The Fisherman’s Potion temporarily reduces a player’s fishing mastery level to catch a fish at a desired level. The potion may be purchased from a Fishermen Guild Member. If the potion's level is higher than the user’s fishing mastery level, the potion has no effect. The effect of using a Fisherman’s Potion lasts 60 minutes.

The Fishing Potion restores a player’s fishing mastery level, which was lowered by the Fisherman’s Potion, back to the previous level. The Fishing Potion may be purchased from a Fishermen Guild Member. The Fishing Potion can take effect even though the Fisherman’s Potion was not used previously, therefore please exercise caution when using it.

Fishing King Championship Tournament

The Fishermen’s Guild Members are looking for the top fishermen in the lands of Aden and Elmore. If you’re one of the best fishers, you might win fame and fortune!

The Fishing King Championship Tournament is held on a weekly cycle. Players compete to catch the biggest fish, and the results are ranked based on the size of the fish they caught.
