    New Fishing Features


    · Trophies have been added for the following fish: kingfish, samurai fish, fire fish, Seeker Fish, giant koi, bull fish, stone fish, and lantern fish.

    · Fish Oil: Fish oil recipe has been added to cooking. Fish oil is created from fish steaks and when used on lanterns will make them stay lit for a very long time. It can also be used to recharge the Oracle of the Sea (see below).

    · Schools of Magical fish: The Order of the Dragonfish has discovered that most magical fish travel in schools. If you start catching a large number of magical fish in one area, it is likely you have found a school. After several fish are caught from a school it will move a short distance away. There is no known way to predict how to find these locations, you just have to get lucky and then pursue the school.

    Lava fishing items have been added to all lava locations

    · Cracked Lava rocks: Players may use an axe on cracked lava rocks to see what is inside.

    New Rewards for the fishing Quest

    · Fish hooks are attached to fishing poles to give them special properties, double click the hook and then select the pole to use it

    · Fish bait may be used together with fish hooks.

    · Junk Proof Hooks: Using a junk proof hook will ensure you don’t catch shoes.

    · Dredging Hook: Using a dredging hook will increase the chance of pulling up things from the depths that are not fish.

    · Lava Hook: This is replacing the lava fishing pole and has the same effect, the main difference is that hooks are stackable.

    · Oracle of the Seas: This reward looks like a blue spyglass and is used to find charybdis. Double click it to locate the monster. The monster location is good for 1 day. Locating the monster consumes a charge, fish oil can be used to bring the charges back.

    · Charybdis bait: Can be used on a fishing pole. When at a location identified by the Oracle of the Seas, fish using charybdis bait to start the encounter. You may have to fish several times to get the charybdis to rise.

    · Improved magical fish bait: The Order of the Dragonfish has discovered ways to improve fishbait for magical fish. (technical note: the way fishbait works essentially is by giving you a certain number of rerolls when trying to catch certain fish, the improved fish bait is simply giving you more rerolls)

    New Sea Encounter

    · Charybdis: This is a new sea encounter that requires special items from the fishing quest to start. Warning: the Charybdis is a dangerous monster and you should only provoke it when you have 2 or 3 friends to help and a fast ship in case things go south!

    How can fish oil make lanterns stay lit longer when they already stay lit until you blow them out?

    and who uses a lantern anymore?!? Its called being an elf or using nocturnal earrings lol. Its not like you can use a lantern and a fishing pole at the same time.

    How many fish does it takes to screw in a lantern? Maybe I'll ask the Lantern Fish!
