Golden Event Information

So far servers are fine for large majority of our players. I reported some players unable to login or stay in game for a while, but guess if there's an issue it's more than just a server issue, as most players are playing just fine.

Don't feel bad. You're not alone on this matter. The drop rate on fishing these is so low that you may never actually get one. Damn and I need the money so badly. <_<

Must be really really low drop rate because my husband and i have been afk fishing since even started and neither of us have gotten one :( Hoping one of us may get lucky and atleast get one lol

That's crazy! My friend and I both got 1 the first night we fished after the event started. Be sure and fish in abundant areas as it raises your chance of even catching a fish and therefore raises your chances of getting the rare drop.

Can anyone confirm that the fish won't get thrown out if you have throw junk away marked? I have only gotten the golden fish when actively fishing. I am thinking since it isn't colored if you have throw away junk it will throw these fish away. 

Has anyone gotten one afk with throw away junk checked?

Have gotten 2 over 5 days

I got one the first night, another one two nights later and a third last night. I have afk fished every night for at least 8 hours, sometimes more (will come back/repair/trade fish and go back afk) and have also afked at random times during the day and left my char fishing. So 3 total. I will say the upside to this event has been that every night while afk fishing I have received between 5-8 relic shards. I may start afk fishing over night more often.

Wow RNGesus is very punishing with the events >,>

I fish almost all the time i can,which is in the morning a 2nd time during the evening then AFK fish at night and i got 0 this far while some of my friends just go at sea for the lolz and get like 1 each time they decide to hit the ocean and with the expend of a steel fishing rod. so my score is 0 while other in my guild go as far as 10.

This event only smile upon the already insanely lucky peoples ._. While us pleb will still get 0 of those golden items up until this whole event end. I remember that bottle of rum event to get those pirate costumes and flag, Me: 1 - 2 hrs of grind = 1 - 5 bottle of rum, Guildies and friends:  20 - 50 bottle of rums 30min - 1 hour of grind i guess that "Hidden luck stat per account" is a real thing, and mine is dirt low T_T 

But an event is an event AND I WILL SE IT THROUGH !!!

seriously. what kind of an event if it reward NOTHING to players... or to all the players

event mean players get free shit, or at least participating players get free shit, what kind of STUPID idea calling a drop as an event when 95% of the ppl who participating and trying to got the "EVENT" item don't get it... if the drop rate is 0.0000001% then don't call it event... event my ass.

been fishing since the day server came up until it stop for maintenance and didn't even get one. and I know for a fact am not the only one who didn't get any even tho they fish and they participating in the stupid idea that you call EVENT.

 

its better to send ea player 5m than doing this event cause again its RNG... this game is Heavy RNG based even with its event for real ??????
