    @illusive_allusion - Thank you for reporting. Bug is being recorded for review.

    Just curious though, does a "broken" fishing rod prevent you from fishing?

    @illusive_allusion I was unable to repro this internally. You should automatically have the Fishing Rod equipped.

    Could you provide a screenshot showing the damage?

    @Serafina Sorry about my tardiness in replying. Unfortunately, I destroyed the broken pole and am now using prosperity tools. I suppose I could buy another regular pole, equip it, and see if it gets damaged. I'll do that. If the new rod gets damage, I'll take a screenshot for you.

    @Daxxe Diggler Yes, a broken rod means no fishing. It's the same as trying to collect from an ore node with a broken pickaxe. I have yet to buy the fishing skill, so how the rod acquired wear is beyond my comprehension.

    (My every attempt to edit my previous post has failed. Please forgive this separate post for the explanation!)

    I have never cast a line, not even once. The rod with mysterious wear (note 83/99 durability) is the second one I have not used. :p The first one, as stated above, slowly acquired wear without my ever using it. I bought my current one from the crafting merchant after discarding the worn-out one and simply waited for the new rod to show wear. Please note in the screen shot that my Fishing skill is 1. I bought the skill a few days ago, thinking perhaps the second rod was not going to bug out. And then I just today noticed that the second rod has delivered. ;)

    The mysterious wear continues . . .

    I still have never cast a rod.

    Does any part of combat or dying place random wear on crafting tools? (Many months ago someone told me it did, but I've never heard that confirmed as intentional from Portalarium. If that's true perhaps the wear I'm seeing is completely intentional and not a bug at all?)
