You didn't catch anything!Follow

Hey everyone I'm newly returned but having some fishing issues. My main is a 67 fishing but I recently rolled 2nd toon that I'm leveling as well. I loaded up on insect paste and a yew rod, and ran down to knightswell.

Now I know it wasn't full moon or anything, but I only caught 10 carp, then just got "you didn't catch anything" messages for the next 20 casts. I seem to recall messing with fatigue a while back but I haven played since 2009.

Is this normal or am I missing something?
Should I try just little worms instead until I'm closer to 10?

I also didn't have any of the fishing "gear" If that makes a difference.

Thanks!

New characters are extremely limited in their fishing capabilities as a way to combat RMT.

I don't know the exact requirements, but I believe a character needs to be 2+ weeks old and have reached lv20.

I think more is mentioned here:

Ah ok, that makes sense. That toon is only a level 15 monk and he is still on his 30 day free trial.

Thanks for the fast reply and the link.

^.^

Hi-

I think the character has to be level 20 or above, too.
