    Uh oh! Part of the reason we have 3 POT locations each round, just in case people forget to update their statues. People will forget understandably on occasion, but if @Trinity needs to borrow a statue, just gimme a holler :)

    Hi @Elgarion

    I have a small request I hope will be considered as a means of increasing participation in the weekly PVP fishing tournament if there are plans to continue it through next year. I think these suggestions will help grow the PVP community or at least encourage people to give PVP areas a try.
    • Currently there is no lava fishing location in the PVP rotation
      • Blood Bay remains out of rotation, yet has lava flows.
        • Like The Brave Coast, Blood Bay represents an awesome blended PVP area with player housing I am sure most newer players aren't even aware of as I just myself discovered these places recently.
      • Perhaps rotating between freshwater fishing locations and adding in blood bay to the overall rotation
    • Many people are tepid about the idea of PVP for fear of losing items
      • Opalis Ruins is a good introduction area to PVP, perhaps a small lake can be added in it somewhere?
      • Maybe instead Brave Coast could be toggled to no ransom and level capped so there is one PVP scene with player housing that is level capped and one that isn't?
      • Or maybe another scene, currently in rotation could be made just level capped and no ransom
    • Maybe a unique title for an angler able to pull off a hat trick in a single week - win all three fishing contests
      • I know there are already fishers attempting this just for the prestige of it, maybe that honor can be delayed further by making a special super rare title to be worth fighting over?
    Anyway, been loving the fishing contests, the new title, and the added fish this year. Just some thoughts as to how the PVP aspect of the contest might be made a bit more active.

    Thanks for the contest and considering!

    @Sonja Belladonna noticed your saltwater statue isn't placed -- let me know if you need a loaner :)

    I changed everywhere that says Blackblade Passage to Blackblade Pass -- for whatever reason that underworld location didn't use the Passage naming convention. Thank you for that nudge, @Lained

    Season's greetings everybody!

    Thank you very, very much @Belladonna Rose and @Elgarion for reminding me and helping me during this busy holiday season! ♥ The water in Brittany Fort has now been magically changed to saltwater for all to enjoy some salty sea fishing in the snow. :p

    I've had an ongoing $100,000 gold reward for the largest fishy caught at any time in Brittany Fort since long before Elgarion's wonderfully managed fishy events and the water type could be magically changed, but unfortunately I probably haven't been the best publicist for that ongoing reward, as I think the only fishers I'm aware of that pursued it were Taikee Vetrae (@MrSonja), Strider Green (@Strider99), Elmo (@redfish), @Phamyns, @Nubby, @Alpha Fishstick, and probably @Flair and @Irishize too if I had to guess:

    ✨ Please send me a note if you've been pursing my $100,000 gold reward at any time and how close you've come. I'd be delighted to hear from you and learn who's actually participated, but just didn't catch a fishy large enough to give me.✨

    Since the water type can be changed now and there are many more fishies now, I'll extend the ongoing $100,000 gold reward to the largest fishy caught of every type of fishy in Brittany Fort from now until eternity. :) These record holding fishes will be recorded in the above quoted topic, nicely cared for and safely on display for all to see in Brittany Fort in a magical invisible aquarium. :p

    I wish you all the very best of luck and a wonderfully fun time fishing with friends and don't forget to save your largest fishies for me, and I'll begin preparing a list of the current records to beat.

    Merry Christmas and happy holidays!


    Yours truly,

    Governor Sonja Solar

    @Elgarion Blackblade Pass is a terrible place to lava fish, the respawn rate is too high to do anything there.

    I can usually fish until all areas are down to about 40% chance before they respawn or at least if they do I'm fishing from out of their sight line at which point I reset the scene and the fishing percentage.

    If you use the Oracle Colossus entrance you can lava fish all day without fighting anything.

    There are 3 pools that can be fished with no mobs. When % drops just exit up the ladder and re-enter the zone to reset it.


    I like the spot personally

    The entrance is in front of the barrier so easily accessible.
