About the level of item that can be obtained by fishing

Post by Nyaon » Tue Oct 16, 2018 10:34 am

Does the level of item obtained by fishing depend only on my level?
Are fishing rods and skill levels completely random regardless?
Is there a possibility that it depends on the map?
And is there something I get higher level items than my level?

I guess this question probably exists in the past topic but I could not find it. :oops:

Type of rod, fishing trade level, affinity all affect the speed of fishing but have no effect on what is caught

There is this post about affinity

And there are these that I found somewhere here on the forums...

The last two don't show craft levels though. :(
So now I add a fourth image. :D

I couldn't find it either, other than the links provided earlier in this thread.

So, to everyone: can a level 0 character obtain a 250 item from fishing, or do we have to be level 250+ to be able to fish it?

Interesting, I got off track.

I have a lvl 40 character that has fished 2x level 50 axes:

Code: Select all

STUFF FISHED: 15|59 items¹
	- 1x plate-30		- 1x plate-10
	- 1x Slow Spell-20	- 1x plate-40
	- 1x helm-15		- 1x sword-25
	- 1x helm-7		- 1x wand-30
	- 2x axe-50		- 1x crossbow-10
	- 1x sword-15		- 1x axe-40						-
	- 2x armor spell-30
So you can fish stuff at a higher level.

Therefore a new question: Is there a cap of how far over your level you can fish?

Here is a post from MadMikael about a cap on fishing stating it is not possible to receive items level 500 and above. I do NOT know if this has been revised, but there are multiple posts suggesting a 500 cap instead of 499.

Fishing was "bugged" in it's first release
Basically, anything was fishable by anyone, which was not how it was intended to be.

As it stands, you cannot fish level 500 items, but theoretically you could fish a 499 one if it existed.
It supposedly goes up to level 499.
For other items that could be fished, well, there are limitations.
For a lot, you could look in items.list (the one from the editor, also posted a link from forum, NOT the easy one items.txt), to find a line like this
541 474 BOOTS Greater Mage Boots MOVE_SPEED:1 PRICE:20000000 DEXTERITY:20 MANA:20 LEVEL:250 FOR_RANGED:1 NON_FISHABLE:1 Walking speed +1
Which is not fishable. Just like quest items are not fishable.
65 65 QUEST Book
But trophies are fishable (they're kinda like quest items, but they're different in the list).
63 63 TROPHY Wolf Fang
64 64 TROPHY Skull

But don't believe all the rumours you hear at start map. Players do not fish pets, unless they're keeping fish as a pet.
601 538 TROPHY Pet NON_FISHABLE:1 CAN_USE:4 Get the strongest follower available for your character. You can't have more than 2 pets.
Note the "NON_FISHABLE" tag.

As for the level, it is indeed based on your account's xp level.
You can fish items up to 20% higher than your level; i.e. if you're level 100, you could fish level 120 items, but not 125.

For the trade skill, it only increases your speed in the action, and each level gain you get, the bonus is less than the last.
Those are the pictures LostKnight posted, as found in this post viewtopic.php?f=25&t=13964
(And LK, they don't show speed of crafting as that depends entirely on how fast you tap the screen).

Tools are also described in that post, albeit briefly, because they are simple.
In case you’re using a Great Tool, read the following tables adding 1 to your real skill level, while a Mithril Tool adds 2.
So a mithril tool makes it seem like your trade skill is two levels higher than it actually is. So it only affects speed.

The answer in a nutshell! Colour is mine.

Thank you MadMikael

Thank you, everyone. :D
Only one more.
Although it seems that I saw that the maximum level of skills such as phishing, craft etc. was written as 6 in some article, it seems that there is a level above 6 when looking at the list.
There seems to be information that the maximum level is 12 or more, but ...

What is the maximum level?
