Fishing Summer Event

Summer has arrived in Midgard, and what better way to beat the heat than by heading down to the water for some good ol' fashioned fishin' fun? The waters all across the land are absolutely rippling with aquatic activity, so what are you waiting for? Grab your fishing rod, bring your friends and let's go!

You don't have a fishing rod?!
We'll have to fix that real quick!


    How To Start

Head on over to Althea, by the pond, and talk to the Giant Spirit Aegir.
If you give him the money he needs, he'll fix you up a rod of your choice, including some bait.
Return to Aegir with your best catches to redeem his personal gear!

Fishing Summer Event

TIP: Higher quality rods will make it easier for you to catch different variants of fish and goodies, so it's good to have some variety!
They give you different advantages, just like your Lure & Bait, which help beginners to find their way around certain obstacles.

It's possible to unlock even better rods if you get lucky. Talk to Aegir to get further details, tips & tricks on how to go around with your fishing equipment. One of the 2 highest tier rods is available in our token shop in exchange for gRO Tokens.


    Fishing Spots

Equip your fishing rod and fish your way around Rune-Midgard!
There are fishing spots all over the world, all labelled as Fishing Spot.
Once you see ripples in the water, click on it to start fishin'! Choose your rod, your bait, and cast away!

Fishing Summer Event

TIP: Enable sound effects to find fishing spots. It also helps you additionaly for faster reaction speeds.
It is also recommended to switch your fishing areas after an extensive fishing session, as the fish population will decrease and needs to replenish.
Areas/towns/fields/dungeons which are nearby share a total population with each other! So make sure you travel far enough before continuing your fishing session.



    Lure & Bait

As mentioned above, you can obtain rods from Aegir, but he also sells some basic lure and living bait.
Based on your choice, the lure/bait may increase your chances of catching Rare Fish by increasing your initial reaction and fight time.

You can certainly fish with the basic lure and rods only, but it won't be easy to catch anything rare that way!
Certain caught fishes may be perfect as a new and bigger bait, which will further help you to catch something even bigger.

TIP: Take a close look at everything that you're catching.
You never know what you're going to catch, but using better lure and bait will help you to succeed.

If you're struggling with harder catches, swap your rod and lure to compensate for your skill.


    Fishes / Sea Animals

There's a huge variety of fishes, trash and other shiny things which you may encounter. But be careful... monsters might be hungry for some more than just a little bait. Some fish types, monsters or other loot might be more rare, depending on your fishing area. For instance a fishing spot within a dungeon might have a higher chance for a boss monster to appear than if you're fishing in a town. Follow your natural instincts!

TIP: Some fish can steal your basic rods and bait even though you have been successful. Upgrading to an advanced rod can help to prevent that.
Some sea animals have swallowed precious treasure for you take out of them.

The faster you have to react, and the faster the fishing action bar is moving, the bigger/better the fish/catch! If you can't hold onto the harder ones, make sure to swap to a better rod and bait combo.


    More Rewards

There's a big variety of rewards which you can get your slippery hands on.
As mentioned already, Aegir exchanges big fish for his personal gear.

His wife, Ran the Water Spirit is seeking for her lost daughters.
She's claiming that they might appear as weird looking fishes to you.
Return them to Ran, and she will greatly reward you with Blue Sea Eggs from the cash shop.

Fishing Summer Event

TIP: Ran rewards you with an additional Exotic Exclusive if you can help her to return all of her 9 lost daughters!
The sea & ponds are full with all kinds of treasures to find, so keep on fishin'!

"Grant me the serenity to accept the size of the fish i catch, the courage not to lie about it, and the wisdom to know that none of my fishing buddies would believe me anway."

Shantotto, a tarutaru blackmage from the Federation of Windurst and and a hero of the Crystal War, is in disguise as a Doram in Rune-Midgarts Kingdom and fished out a nasty Buwaya in Althea's waters.



I'll dispense with the greeting, since your life will be fleeting. - Shantotto to Buwaya

Sanhe is mostly reclusive and just really wants to be left alone. When he goes fishing, he moves to a small abandoned fishing dock just north of the Goldring's Field. He is promptly humiliated as a Thief Fish steals his only Metal Fishing Rod.




Sanhe wishes that he could fish here :(

Cats are legendary animal in the Rune-Midgard. In Althea, you can easily find these twin cats hanging around at Althea Lake. They get along really well. Their names are Tchalla and Garlic Powder. They really love to go fishing. However, things get sour quickly when one gets the fish and the other doesn't. You can see them fighting over a fish in this picture.




Everything is better when they share it. They finally got each fish for them and they continue their fishing while singing loudly! Some people says you can still hear them singing even until now, in-tune with the Althea theme song.
