I'm not sure if i'm the only one but I caught a golden coelacanth right off the coast of velia. I'm a beginner level 9 fisher and used a normal fishing rod. https://gyazo.com/34fdd907c26f5a79840fc3550eec10be

At least they do events, you are lucky that you don't play a game that releases it's stuff, then waits 2 years to actually do any events, -----.

Yes, the challenge is to play other games while BDO is running 24/7 in the background for afk fishing ... just to realize after 3 days that you still haven't caught a single golden fish.

Isn't this game fantastic?

My friend caught won after literally only 5 minutes of afk fishing.  I was there and she told me (I trust her, if she says she caught it, she did).

Her skill level is no more than skilled5, I would guess.

It's just the RNG.

I'm not sure how pure RNG can be considered a challenge...

I think they are pretty rare, I afk fish about 16 hours a day since the patch hits and haven't gotten one.  My friend only afk fishes atm and has been fishing nonstop since then and neither of us have caught one

I don't actually even consider this an 'event'. They added an ultra rare item to an RNG loot table temporarily. There is nothing your actually participate in that I would call an event. Maybe you make some more money fishing...most likely not. If you are going to actively fish to try and make 5 mil silver you'd be FAR better off picking tulips. Your chances of making 5 mil on hard and sharp shards is way better per unit time.

Caught one in Velia afk fishing, caught another one in a warm spot near one of the fish knowledge icons out in deep water while active fishing. Pretty sure it's the same tiny chance anywhere, and independent of fishing skill or rod quality. Best bet is to find a good static spot and maximize your number of casts. Chasing seagulls is not the way to go IMO, you will have way fewer casts overall doing that and thus lower chances at a golden prize.

I caught one yesterday during an afk fish session in Eupheria (on the dock) I'm skilled 2, using thick rods atm.

 

I'd say I've gone through about 3 thick rods to get 1 fish.
