any way to lvl fishing faster?

58 posts in this topic

This really does help. I thought it was a glitch as noticed the shift in % gained per rare since Skilled L5. I have Fishing Armor, 2 points from Guild Buff, and a Steel Rod that brings me Fishing Ability to L5. Can you confirm if having extra buffs contributes to more rare fish? e.g Once you hit the L5 Fishing Ability from enhancements, does stacking more on (food buffs, pets etc) get included like as hidden stat? I noticed this game has a habit of hidden stats and a corrupt RNG system.

Bonuses above 5 are useless, 5 is the cap, no secret cap that I am aware of.  The fishing skill bonus only affectes speed or how often you land a fish, not the size of the fish.  To get bigger or better fish you need special rods/floats and then you can enhance them like a weapon to further stack the odds in your favor.

Not to depress you, but it gets worse.  I'm Artisan 7 in fishing and it takes 3-4 blue/yellows to get 1% now. I'm not complaining, I don't actually mind that it takes awhile... at least having a high rank will mean something (something like I have no life probably).  I'm just sharing so you can appreciate how fast you're actually leveling fishing now!

Also... some bonuses... crafters feel free to thank me :-)

Sute Tea - 8% fishing xp buff for 90 min (also helps raise your health through food consumption)

Silver Embroidered Fisher's Outfit gives XP buff when enhanced.  +1 gives 10% to fishing, +2 gives 15%.  Enhancing works like accessories so if you fail you lose both so it gets expensive.  I haven't had the guts to try to +3.

Pets can give buffs.  I have a dog, cat, and hawk all with +3% fishing so that's 9% more

Maple floats give a chance for rare fish which will enhance xps

The cash shop has scrolls that give xp bumps for life skills

Manual fishing is at least 3x as fast as afk, more catches = more xps

 

hope this helps!!

 

Great post! Thanks Miss Artisan :D

Getting a blue, yellow or the orange fish will help leveling fish a bit.

Getting any gear that helps fishing faster, any outfit that gives you a percentage exp boost towards fishing, where you fish and manually fishing all play a factor towards leveling faster.

Active Fishing Vs AFK Fishing (from my experience)

Active

  1. Faster
  2. More Fish
  3. More Experience (2 hour fishing session giving ~60% of fishing level)
  4. Use more fishing rods
  5. More Whites/Greens in Hot-spots. My last active fishing sesion yielded 56 Blue Fish, 32 Gold Fish, 16 Green, and 12 White fish (tossed the white)

AFK

  1. Slower
  2. Less Fish
  3. Almost no Experience Gain (2 hours afk fishing giving 10% fishing level)
  4. Less rods burnt through
  5. Less Whites/Greens in the Hot-spots. My last AFK fishing session yielded 18 Blue, 18 Gold, 3 Green, 1 White without box checked.

The higher/rarer the fish the more exp and u can get a fishers outfit which gives u +1 fishing which makes u fish faster or join a guild with fishing skills unlocked to get the + 1-3 and if u enchant the fishers outfit u get 10% more exp and to lvl up faster go to a hot spot that gives u yellow and blues 24/7 and abundant.

 

 

P.S: Im Artsan2 50%

Come child, sit and listen to the wisdom of advanced fishing.

Step 1) Turn on Pandora to your favorite tunes

Step 2) Manual fishing is 3 times or better faster than AFK fishing.  More catches = more XP

Step 3) Catch fish, press keys

Rinse/repeat

There are no real secrets...I am no better than anyone.. I just am more persistent and have less of a life!

Such knowledge.

Yeah I do the same pretty much. I need to spend more time active fishing.  Get bored usually and go quest/farm.

Probably repeating someone else, but I'll throw in my few tips.. 

- You can buy the silver embroidered fisher's clothes for an XP boost (5% with +1 enhancement) and increased fishing level. Enhancing the clothes increases the xp boost for each successful tier, although it has a risk of failure on par with accessories and failure will destroy both items. It's much less expensive to use your CP to set up a costume mill and link up the needed material nodes instead of buying multiple uniforms. 

- The skilled fisher's uniform (from a fishing quest in Epheria) also gives +5% fishing experience, and +1 fishing level, but it can't be enhanced (got this after Pro 1, but I'd never bothered to pick up fishing quests before). 

- Splat fisher's clothes increase effective fishing level, but they don't give an XP boost. 

- Fruit wine, paste bait, Full-bodied herbal wine - you can stack 1 bait, and 1 wine consumable for faster fishing times. Faster fishing = more xp. 

- The Balenos Rod (IIRC) reduces fishing time while AFK fishing. Which might be ok if you plan on doing a lot of afk fishing. 

- Try to fish in abundant hotspots - frequent catches, of higher value/quality = more xp. 

- Basically, anything that increases fishing speed (and perhaps level, as better catches give more xp) will help. 

- There is also a fishing quest from Abelon (sp) in Velia (the kid/shai on the docks) that rewards triple float fishing rods (chance for three fish per cast). You'll get three rods for completing the quest, and it can be completed every three days. I'm assuming with the increased catches, you'll also get increased xp (although I didn't pay attention to the xp gain when I was using it). Great item to use in a hotspot. (another Pro fishing quest, not sure when it unlocks)

Also, not sure if the daily fishing quests give fishing experience or not (like the gathering quests) but worth checking out if so.

thats like saying. all those lvl 50 are exploiting on lvl 50 monsters instead of killing those lvl 10.

Sure you might want to kill the lvl 50 monsters since its giving more xp.

Im Artisan 9, and i would say 25% of the time I played Tera instead, 25% other things than Fishing. 20% fishing in town, 20% fishing in an Island, 10% Fishing in a hotspot.

Ppl being master doesnt mean they exploited a Fishing spot lol

There is a fishing spot giving a lot of xp for each fish, way beyond imagination.

I saw people on the same day getting from Master lvl1 to Master lvl6.
