    Default Celestial Fishing Rune is useless

    The other runes give a 50% increase in harvesting rate. As near as I can tell the fishing rune might give a slight increase to the rate of fishing up blues. The number of fish taken is the same and the type of fish seems to be typical for the location (SFP zones only so far).

    As of NEXT week's hotfix (likely on 4/26), this will be in the patch notes:

    The crafted fishing rune will now sometimes increase the yield of fish. Additionally, it improves the chances of obtaining Stanís Tacklebox and Lure recipes for those that have not yet acquired them.

    Default Working as intended?

    @Tacticus

    Is this rune working as intended? I did a little test, using the rune I crafted last week:

    20 casts for each type of fish

    Blackthorn Trout -- caught 21 (+5%)
    Starfall Crab -- caught 30 (+50%)
    Tenebrean Eel -- caught 20 (no benefit from rune)

    I know this is a tiny sample size but the benefits from the other gathering runes are noticeable even with small sample sizes. WAI? Or is my pre-update rune somehow different from newly crafted runes?

    Been fishing with the rune in SFP waters (Gedlo) since reset and it is definitely working. I have seen all of the following:

    1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 of the basic fish (trout or crabs) from a single cast
    1 tenebrean eel & 1 or more (up to 4) basic fish from a single cast

    Every 2-4 casts I would see a multiple of some description. I think I only ever saw singles from a single pull cast, but I may be mistaken. I wasn't paying such close attention.

    All in all it seems to be a slightly better return than the mining runes (I haven't tested the others).

    *EDIT* My missus trialled the rune in previous expansion zones and it didn't seem to add any bonus. Is this intended?

    Came across a bug today. We all know about the leaving TD and no NPCs in Alittu thing, well I found the fishing rune wasn't working (Gedlo). Did at least 30 casts, all singles. I unequipped and re-equipped and it immediately yielded multiples. That wasn't ENG, but a bug. Minor, but a bug nonetheless...

    removing rune and adding again... you used a rune remover?

    Did you try relog before?

    Ah, I only used it for a few dozen casts and I only got 1 and 2 fish, thought that was it.

    Do you know roughly what % of the time you get 1/2/3/4/5?
    I think I saw about 75%-80% 1 fish and 20-25% 2 fish. I guess odds of 3/4/5 are pretty low?

    Apologies for the confusion ... by unequip & re-equip I mean the shoulder that has the rune, i.e. gear swapping. I have four TD shoulders (darn you RNGeebus), but they are useful for mounting one each of the harvest skill runes. So I swapped one in, and then the fishing one back on, and it worked again.

    I haven't tracked the amount of multiples... I tend to zone out when fishing (over 1,500 this week LOL) but I didn't track numbers. It certainly can go through weird RNG. I have seen 5 fish twice in a row, and also strings of 8-10 cats of singles. My guess is that the average fish take has probably doubled.

    The number of pulls on the line doesn't seem to have an effect. I have seen multiples off single-pull casts.

    Does the bonus ONLY work in the SFP zones? I equipped the rune and went to fish in Brevane, and it's been single fish pulls for the past 15 minutes.

    (Also, if being really high skill level allows for greater foraging/butchering/mining results in general, why does it not work the same way for fishing?)

    Wish it would yield more fish in these zones as well.
    For no reason in particular
