Fishing

From The Walkscape Walkthrough


Fishing is straightforward - you catch different species of fish. Fish can be cooked with the Cooking skill to turn them into consumables. With higher fishing levels, you will have access to more fish, better fishing tools, and special skilling equipment that can boost your fishing efficiency. You can also receive fishing chests as a rare drop from training this skill.

Activities

For activities involving two skills, the player is only eligible to earn chests in skills that have actual level requirements.

So, if the activity has a fishing level requirement, it will be eligible to drop Fishing Chests.

When performing an activity for a skill, only the primary skill is factored in for the player's equipment bonuses, the "2nd Skill" will also be affected by the equipment attributes based toward the "1st Skill" (IE: +1 Exp will apply to the "2nd Skill" as well).

The following activities are eligible to drop Fishing Chests.

Note that fishing experience rates will differ often from what is shown below due to the RNG of catching different fish from the same spots - which each have their own Exp values.
