    Use a taxidermy kit on it. You can buy them from tanners shop right behind WBB.

    I would guess a translation mistake ... wall mount doesnt mean that it is a rideable. Thought i cant say the difference within uo of a trophy (as we know them) and 'one of the new fishable wall mounts'.

    Was what I was wondering about - cuz taxademi kit would make a wall throphy. Not a wall mount as its written in the publish notes - unless im misunderstanding it. But its either no info on how to make wall mounts.

    There are two new fish trophy shapes. These shapes cover several fish types.
    Type one, the Marlin type includes Blue and Black Marlin, which can be seen here: Taxidermy Kits
    this type also includes lava fish and unicorn fish.
    Type two is the dragonfish style, which I don't yet have a picture of, but I believe uoguide does.

    Fair warning if you decide to make a fish trophy out of it, the color seems to be messed up (hopefully not forever) and it just shows up as this uncolored blackish/dark greyish fish trophy. Rather ugly in my opinion.

    Also, what was your fishing at when you caught that marlin?
