Golden Event Information

Since this is RNG based, do you think fishing level will have no increase in drop chances?  I apologize for the dumb question.

Idk. Lvl 7 character. Fishing beginner 1, basic fishing rod: 35 energy = 1 golden inflation ticket

My guild mate has higher quality gear and higher skill level: he get 100 yellow/ultra rare fishes but he get  0 event5 million silver - fish. Or this is extreme RNG thing, or skill has 0 effect or rare/yellow drop use same droptable and has priority in roll or dropping trash fish settings drop the event golden fish. Or my guildmates say big thimng without reality. :D

80% grinding mobs. and 20% only on lifeskills.. seems a bit odd there honestly. lifeskills rarely get any attention.

Combat experience again!? and 50%? Why not life experience sometimes? ... Even though i appreciate the idea of this event... it covers everything i don't do in the game. I don't fish / grind mobs or gather. I cook and do / alch, and of course no experience bonus for me or any chance in getting any gold items either. Lame, life skill players are forgotten about again.

It's to allow new player or new characters to level up. People aren't leveling through Life skills.

I just caught a Coelcanth first try in Velia, but it is only 125,000?

 

***EDIT*** Never mind, I caught only a Coelacanth, not the GOLDEN Coelacanth....

Do you have to fish it manually, or can it be done afk?

Black Stone event? really?
Better give us Sharp and Hard shards event...

You keep thinking that, meanwhile I'm having fun creating alternates and farming Sharp and Hard Concentrated Black Stones through the quests.

Through the quests? You mean the life skills quests?

Boooo .... more SILVER inflation is the LAST thing we need,  buff harvest rate of Shards and polish success rate of Alch Stones you Misers!

Or atleast have Lifeskill Rank affect those rates

Yep, my two accounts plus my husband's account have been fishing since 12 pm CST and still no golden coelacanth on any of the three accounts.
My main account is skilled 7, level 5 fishing, in an abundant area. My second account is skilled 4, level 4 fishing, and in the same area. Husband is artisan 4 in fishing I believe with level 5 fishing, +10 Mediah Rod and +5 Maple float in an abundant area and nothing for him. (All accounts also have penguin)

 

I'm not sure how the golden dagger and golden backpack event will go, but if they are anything like this fishing one so far I think people won't really need to fear silver inflation. In the near 9 hours I've spent trying to catch 1 of these fishies I could have made double the amount they sell for. I might skip this event or at least not put so much time into it. The combat and gathering one I'll definitely go for though.

Just a bit of information I've gathered so far ( done fishing for now lol )  in regards to this event.  The Golden Coelacanth can be caught anywhere regardless of resource status, with any rod, at any fishing skill.  Just a VERY low chance for it to drop.  This next part is dependant upon what you want to do, but if your only there for the green grade and higher fish, you can toggle to throw away useless items while fishing and if you DO catch the lucky fish your toon will still pick it up.  Just figured I'd share cause I for one don't want to come back to full inventory of grey fishies and torn clothing/boots hehe. Hope this helps you all.  Good luck and happy hunting!

I guess the drop rates are going to be crazy low, right?  I mean, it makes sense, what with them being so valuable...

Its low.  I was afk fishing from 10 AM CST to 8:30 PM CST and didn't get any.  Was in abundant resource area in Tarif, with Epheria Rod and App 9 Fishing skill

So it'll take hours to get it from grinding?

I don't think that some people understand the fact that the NA/EU version has been playing catch up to the KR version at a fairly fast rate. KR players had time to build up their hordes of silver. I will admit that I am a no-lifer on this game (summer break from college helping me with that), but even I can't imagine spending 80-100 something million on a piece of gear right now.

When it comes to these weekend experience boost events they are going to be doing for the next however many weeks, I think that is to help with the release of the Ninja next week. Plus once they finally decide to release awakenings more people will be level 56 and Ninjas won't be behind the rest of the classes either. I do, however, sympathize with the players who can't take advantage of the 50% experience boosts on the weekends because they work weekends.
