From Medivia Online Wiki

Fishing is one of the skills which Medivia offers alongside the likes of Cooking and Mining. It does not have a direct impact on your gameplay, although it can result in long-term benefits and enjoyment.  

Getting started

To begin your journey with fishing, you will need a fishing rod. Fishing rods can be used to catch fish, but they cannot be used on all types of water. It's not possible to use fishing rods on shallow water. Once a fish is caught, it takes 10 minutes to respawn. There are three types of fishing rods, ranging in quality and difficulty to obtain:

Image Name Weight Price Note
RTENOTITLE Wooden Fishing Rod 8.5 oz. 150 gp Can be bought from any equipment/tool shop. Can be pulled out of your hands and drop into the water.
RTENOTITLE Modified Fishing Rod 9.5 oz. 25000 gp An improved fishing rod, can be used to catch more uncommon types of fish, ones that cannot be caught with a wooden rod. Cannot be pulled into the water.
Can be bought from Bruno in Northport and from Obi on Novus.
RTENOTITLE Enhanced Fishing Rod 12.5 oz. 5x Heliodor Bar
1x Glob of Tar
1x Frozen Ham
1x Modified Rod
The best fishing rod, can be used to catch even the rarest types of fish, ones that cannot be caught with the other rods. Cannot be pulled into the water.
Randy in Abukir can give you one in exchange for some items. You also need 10x Northern Pikes, but only for the first rod you make with Randy.

Note: Increasingly rare fish can only be caught with more advanced fishing rods.



Pools of fish

If you spot a fish jumping out of the water, quickly grab your fishing rod.
Fishing from pools of fish has a much higher chance of resulting in an uncommon fish than fishing from regular water squares, the chance of getting common Herrings from pools decreases as your fishing skill gets higher.
Northern Pikes and Shrimp can only be caught from regular fishing and not from pools of fish.
Fishing from pools also grants higher amounts of fishing skill points.
Pools of fish in different regions of the world may yield differing uncommon fish (Snowy, Desert, Regular).




Types of fish

Most fish types can be used for Cooking, although they can also be eaten raw, which isnt recommended since you could reap more significant benefits from cooked meals.

Note: Some types of rare fish may only be caught in certain regions or climates of the world (and with better rods), the regions being:

  • Snowy (waters around the Ice Islands, such as Mejborn and Forgula);
  • Desert (waters around desert cities, such as Osaris, Yehsha and Abukir); 
  • Regular (waters around areas with temperate climates and lots of greenery, such as the mainland of Medivia, Garrogat etc.).
