Fishing is one of the last skills to be unlocked, after Combat. The skill is about catching fish for cooking, as fish is the main food source. By crafting a Fishing Rod, one can start automatically catch fish as time passes, making it not only an almost purely passive skill, but also one of the slowest skills to level.


Players gain XP when catching a fish from Fishing Rod or boats. Each type of fish gives a different amount of XP and has a different chance to catch. Upgrading the rod with gems, higher Fishing level and achievement perks increase the rate of catching fish. This however doesn't apply to fish from boats. Clicking on the rod will show the current chance of finding each type of fish. The rod can also be upgraded with a Blue Fishing Rod Orb, which allows it to catch new types of fish.

Bonus chance for Fishing Rod Edit

Each gem tier increases the fish catching chance by 5%, for a total of 20% at Diamond. Each fishing level increases the rate by 0.5% (except for level 1), for a maximum increase of 49.5% at level 100. The easy fishing perk gives an additional 5% more chance. Note that the bonus is multiplicative instead of additive. The equation for the final chance would be:

\frac{1}{BaseRate(1 - 0.005(FishingLevel - 1))(1 - 0.05(GemLevel))(1 - 0.05)}

Boat Edit

Sending boats to sea is another way to catch fish, at a cost of Fishing Baits. Different boats have a different chance to catch fish, with a bigger cost. They can also come back with a Treasure Map, although with a very rare chance.
