Start off in Northern Alberta. MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide2 MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide3

Talk to Welsley and ask for a fishing rod. He will tell you to bring him some items for him to make you one. You can choose between a regular fishing rod and a small fishing rod.

To make the regular fishing rod you need:

After giving him all the required materials, he will give you a fishing rod.

MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide4MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide5

Rod in hand, DON'T EQUIP IT; you can start fishing in various places around Rune-Midgard. When you equip the small rod, the -3 second cast time is for New World Fishing. Not this quest.

MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide6

To fish, you must find a body of water with a ripple spot on it.

MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide7

Once you find a spot, you can choose your bait/rod and cast your line.

the fishing pool cds are per char so just keep swapping chars; you could literally be fishing nonstop in the same spot if you have like 9 chars on your account lol.

should update OP with the additional details.

MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide12 Nice art camp! MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide13 After some artwork pops up, you will be given a set of menu options. MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide14 You choose your options and if you are lucky you will pull an item up!


So this has been working for me, I cannot confirm it 100%, but here is how it works for me.

I was using the small rod and jellopy as bait.

Your catch seems to be pulling away from you. -> Play out the line!

Your fish seems to be holding steady. ->Reel it in!

Your catch seems to be coming towards you. -> Hold Steady!

Blue Whales are the tokens.. different baits increase your chances of catching rare fish in certain areas.. I will give away a couple hints in spoilers here.

The rare fish can only be caught on certain a map.

Tentacles being used in Alberta increase your chance to hook a Sturgeon by a flat 10%. So if you had 5% before it becomes 15%
Salmon really like the taste of Earthworms, insect feelers, and various worm peelings.
Tuna like to eat fresh fish.

It is important to match up the right bait with the right fish.

People should really stop throwing away novice slippers its polluting the waterways.

You have a chance of getting a rare fish, that can be traded in for points; that can then be turned into prizes.


Rare Fish can be turned into points aka Blue Whales.

MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide26 Cault in Alberta, using tentacles and a small rod. (Fought hard) 5pts.

MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide27 Cault in Comodo using meat and a regular fishing rod. (Fought hard) 10pts.

MilkyThief FishingQuestGuide28 Cault in Izlude, using fresh fish and a small rod. (Fought like a sob) 10pts.

btw, octopus is also caught in comodo (iirc I just used meat since it was the same bait for sharks)

jumbo shrimp caught in ayothaya (I only got one ever so no idea what ideal bait is)

squid caught in byalan island (along with the giant squid at times). if you land the giant squid no need to fight it you automatically get blue whales in your inventory.

you might also want to add a blurb on the treasure maps. it's probably buried in the thread somewhere but putting it in the OP would be easier for newcomers.

there's also fishing spots in GH; you can catch piranha there.

Tattered Maps

well apparently the tattered map portion of the fishing event was never reimplemented b/c gravity.

however, when it was in last year all you needed to do was go to the spot listed on the map (or the coords since sometimes the maps are inaccurate) and there would be a pile of sand for you to interact with. after clicking on it, some monsters would spawn, and defeating them spawns a mimic npc that you talk to which gives you a bunch of items (including blue whales) and exp.

you get tattered maps from sealed envelopes, which you can get randomly while actually fishing.

or you can buy tattered maps off other players.

you don't need whitebeard, eyepatch, nothing.

tattered maps are worth something again since the soils have been restored. visit the coordinates from the wiki to redeem your reward (will need to fight some spawned monsters). no need to visit ahab, just refer to the locations in the table on the wiki.
