or you should just git gud.

 

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

Seriously, if you're having those issues get out of gaming.

Just to sum up this cancerous catch up mechanic:
- Black stones to up a rod to + 7/8 -> 4 to 7 mil silver
- Rods for repairs - around 5 to 8 mil
- electric bill for 24/7 fishing - FFS Daum
- Money lost by not farming REAL stuff in game because I genuinely believed that DAUM introduced a real catch up mechanic - 100 mil +
- time invested since patch - 112 hours
- time remaining - around 48 hours
- money made from fish trading 1 to 3 mil at most ( niiiiiceeeee )

Fish caught - ZERO, 0, null, nada, zilch

If you introduce a catch up mechanic it should actually have some chance to work, right? Investing 10-20 mil, losing an opportunity to make 100 mil +, I feel scammed by a loser company yet again.

BTW I know I could of given up the first day I saw they were not dropping, but I wanted to know how fcked up Kakao/DAUM really is with their bullcrap lies. Now I know, have fun fishing 0 to 5 of those fishes in 162 hours...

I have used up about 5 standard 30 dura fishing rods because I only active fish for 20 minutes when bored in heidel.

 

GOtten 2 relic scrolls so far, some keys, and zero of anything else, aka i'm more than happy about it, need the relics a tenfold times more than the fish anyways, now I can't wait till the gathering one starts, time to spend time gathering the hell out of everything

Now I know that they bend the truth a LOT when introducing some catch up mechanics. Had to test it and I did, that is all.

I got 2 of them and i just did what i always do: fish afk at night.
Why the ----- would you start fishing all the time for this 'event'.

If you go and grind you earn more anyway..

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

I caught my first Golden Coelacanth afking near Velia (maybe 90mins into it ... seemed to have found a hotspot judging by the ratio of yellows:blues too)

Apprentice 8, Thick Fishing Rod used... :3

You seem to be confusing 'Event' and 'Catch up mechanic'

Spent most of the event duration afk-fishing, didn't get a single catch. That's with high master rank, enchanted fishing gear and so on and so forth. Would have fished anyway, so no loss there, just yet another RNG disappointment.

Oh well, maybe better luck on the monster killing event :D

Went through about 20 thick fishing rods in an abundant area, never got a single golden fish. I did get around 3-4 runs worth of relics though.

I managed to catch 2 during the whole event. Due to work I spent almost all that time afk fishing (over 120 hours easy) and only got 2.

RNG is RNG  :(

got 1 by AFK fishing every night and some breaks during days + active fishing

The next week is "catch up" since we "might" get a 5 mill dagger while killing..
