Fishing Event

From GatheringRO Wiki


The fishing event is part of the summer themed events which runs for a limited time during the course of the summer.
It features several exclusive rewards and other secrets that can be fished around the globe. When summer has arrived in Rune-Midgard, 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 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.
If you bring him enough big fish, he can even offer you his personal gear!

Pro 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!

You may be able 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.


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!


Pro Tip: Enable sound effects to find fishing spots easier. 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 may decrease and needs to replenish.
Towns which are close together may share a total population with each other.


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.

Pro Tip: Take a look at what exactly you're catching, it may be worth more than what you might think.
You never know what you're going to catch, but using better lure and bait will help you to success.


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 fishes, monsters or 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!

Pro Tip: Some fish might steal your basic rods and bait even though you might have been successful.
Others might have been eating some precious treasure for you take out of them.


There's also 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.
Catch them and she may greatly reward you with Blue Sea Eggs from the cash shop.
The sea is also full with treasures for you to find, so keep on fishin'!


Pro Tip: Ran may reward you with an additional Exotic Exclusive if you can help her to return all of her 9 daughters!

"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."
