Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite the Golden Fishing Rod having more fishing power than the Hotline Fishing Hook, it cannot fish in lava.
  • The only way to get the Obsidifish and Flarefin Koi is by fishing in lava with a Hotline Fishing Hook, so mass production of Inferno Potions makes the Hotline Fishing Hook integral.
  • The Golden Fishing Rod appears visually similar to stardust equipment.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.3.0.1: Golden Fishing Rod only requires 30 completed quests now (instead of 50).
  • Desktop 1.2.4.1:
    • 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 a bug where fishing bobbers would not disappear when you die.
