Golden Coelacanth

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.

Leveling fishing kind of sucks until you hit skilled 5 and can use steel rods. After that it gets much better. Dock fishing also kinda sucks in general. There is a hotspot on the Velia beach (now depleted on most servers due to the event and it being a well-known hotspot). The Heidal river by the storage is also decent for inland fishing. It is most likely depleted by now as well. If you have a boat, like the one a lot of people got from the Valencia seal event, open ocean fishing is better. More blue and gold fish which will level you much faster.

has anyone caught one while afk or can you only get it through active fishing?

Yeah, I caught one AFK fishing in Calpheon the first night. ;)

Doesn't sell to the Trader though, can't make more profit hauling it a distance.  Have to just sell to a vendor.

Catching one is supposed to be a challenge.

whats challenging about this? Is this an afk challenge? Who can be afk the longest? No?

Anywhere. Think of it less like a fish and more like an item (such as relic shards, fish bones, hooks, etc.)

This is the same link being tossed around Uno by a troll who keeps saying he caught one.
I seriously dont know what he gets out of this, like people care

PS: I am not aware of a single person catching one with a lower ranking than Skilled, so obvious troll is obvious.

Not much of an Event, when the drop rate is that low and its yet again all about RNG since people fish for a few minutes and get 2 and others fish for days and get none

Bet the same will happen with next stage, some will kill 10 mobs and get 2 daggers? and others will farm for days and get none

Got one today. Out of town so ask fishing nearly the entire time.  Odd it showed up at the bottom of my inventory.  You sell it to a vendor.

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?

You should just quit...

whats challenging about this? Is this an afk challenge? Who can be afk the longest? No?

...and you too...

...and you too...

or you should just git gud.

 

Quite simple really. There is no challenge to RNG. Only frustration and time consumption.

Yeah for me its the same, fishing since the start of this event mostly afk and i still never have gotten 1 event fish.

And then you come on these forums and see that some people got more then 3 and then i think to myself what am i doing wrong.

I thought my master rank in fishing would help me but no a master 8 fishing can not seem to find this elusive fish, but some skilled fisher finds 3 of them.

I am like whaat whaat :|
