Fishing in Trove: Conquering Boredom Guides

Tags: Basics

I know, I know there's already a fishing guide but this one's different because of my personal quirks (at least that's what I consider them XD). Let's be honest here, fishing is like the most boring thing you can do at Trove. Who wants to watch their character stand around and wait for a catch? But it can also be rewarding after obtaining stuff you can get from fishing.


 

INTRODUCTION

Fishing was introduced to Trove during the Fish 'n Ships update (March 2015). The point of it is to catch a fish, with the use of a fishing pole and a lure, then deconstruct it to gain resources and add it to your collection. Players can currently fish in water, lava and chocolate. Plasma fishing will be added soonTM, the Devs just forgot to add it because of all the craziness of MoP ;)

 

GETTING STARTED

To start fishing, you need first a fishing pole and lures which can be bought from the NPC Saltwater Sam at the Hub. Before you start fishing, be sure that you have equipped a fishing pole and you have lures in your inventory. Now you can cast your lure on a liquid block by pressing the "F" key. Here comes the the boring part, you have to wait ~20-30 seconds until you can see the lure splashing. Press "F" to reel the fish, you have ~5 seconds to respond before wasting your one lure. Rinse and repeat until you're all out of lure. Also you can either catch a fish or an Old Boot which is kinda useless (why kinda? You'll see later..)

 

LURES

You can't fish without these. Can be purchased from Saltwater Sam at Hub. They cost 10 Glim each or can be bought in bundles of 9 or 90.

 

FISHING POLES

As I stated above, it is used for fishing, duh. All fishing poles give 20 mastery points.

OH YEAH BEFORE I FORGET..

  • The first time you deconstruct a new kind of fish, it will be added to your collection thus giving you mastery points.
    • 5 mastery points for Common fish 
    • 10 mastery points for Uncommon fish
    • 25 mastery points for Rare fish
  • Every fish you catch has a weight. If you caught a fish that isn't Average Size, when the fish is deconstructed it will give you a placeable Wall trophy of that particular fish.
  • You can't sell fishes and fish trophies in the Marketplace (which sucks in my opinion)
  • You can't fish if...
    • you have no lure (duh)
    • you have no fishing pole equipped (also, duh)
    • you're underwater
    • the water is Sea of Regret
    • you're riding a moving ship
  • As I mentioned above, you don't need the lava & chocolate fishing poles to be equipped when fishing on those respective liquids.
  • Ancient scales are used for crafting fishing poles, sails, boats and the class, Pirate Captain. While Enchanted scales are for crafting mounts, boats and even this particular dragon!
  • Type /debugtext (not really recommended since the the UI overlaps with the character level An update was made to move the text below the Mastery rank bar) or /loc to determine the elevation of the area you're on. Or just take a look the numbers above your compass (the coordinates to be exact)
  • An Old boot isn't completely useless, you need to it to be able to craft these allies.
  • It's recommended to fish during Wednesdays because of the daily bonus, +50% faster fishing. Sorry dudes, devs changed the Daily Bonus on Wednesday, its now Gem Boxes. However, You can still get to fish faster with Patron or with special weekly events.
  • Type /join fishing to join the fishing channel! Helpful if you need a fishing buddy or something.
  • Fishing can be less boring! Some people put Trove in windowed mode and move it to the half of your screen and use the other half to open Youtube or whatever. BUT BE WARY THIS CAN HAPPEN TO YOU. (Nah just kidding DON'T EVER DO THIS, well you can just don't blame me xD)

 


Have I made you realize that fishing isn't that boring? Or at least an another way to collect materials? Well then, use your newly accumulated knowledge to get that one rare fish you don't have! I'll try to keep this thing updated and thanks for reading! <3

 

CHANGE LOG/UPDATES:

  • 2017-03-08 = added the thing about A. & E. scales and also the coordinates thingy
  • 2017-03-11 = changed the images of fishing poles to a more... ahem clear one; added  the 'Badges' section
