We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite the Golden Fishing Rod having more fishing power than the Hotline Fishing Hook, it cannot fish in lava.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Golden Fishing Rod only requires 30 completed quests now (instead of 50).
    • Fixed a bug where trying to use a Fishing Pole while pulling a snapped line would make the bobber appear again.
    • You can now place Fishing Poles in the Weapon Rack.
    • Fixed bug where fishing bobbers would not disappear when you die.
  • 1.2.4: Introduced.
