Ok to the Age old Question " How Long does It take a Normal person to work off the Deluxe rod?

Charmed Melody Posted by in General - October 8, 2013, 7:19 pm


Well this is my answer.

I got tired of asking and getting the "it all depends" answers. Or totally different answers from 2-3 months to 2 weeks etc well I decided to take you all on the journey with me this is Day 1 for me.... Mind you I had previously fished off a little of the rod prior to doing this blog post so I am going from this point on

Goal Total 3500(the cost of the rod)

I had fished for a few days before getting the deluxe rod as well as after getting it and worked off a total of 151.734122L of the rod before doing this blogging  for all of you out there add at least 1 or 2 days to this journey so you get the idea. And will update as I go.


So here we go ......

I once asked how long it took to fish enough fish to pay off the Deluxe Rod that you get from the contest and no one could give me a definitive answer so I took it upon myself to find out.
Most said a few months, which seems to me to be a bit ridiculous so I am going to see what fishing for 12 hours each day EVERYDAY at normal and multiplier events can do for me to help get the fishing done.

It is as of now I decided to purchase 100L worth of small worms so that I wouldn't have to worry about worms for a while and I already have the deluxe rod from the game and quest. I have fished some of it off already but I will be honest I was a little surprised when it was higher then the cost on the Marketplace but lets just see how this goes shall we???
At the Current Price of worms 100L got me 476 small worms which brought my total up to 496
Small Worms Exchange: You've successfully bought 476 small worms and you now have total of 495 small worms.
Day 1
I am starting out at a Multiplier event at Daisy Dukes (its a x2 at the moment) lets see what i fish up shall we?
Region had a restart right after i bought the worms there lol so had to wait just a lil but we shall see what i end up getting. I ended up going to another fishing hole at the bottom of the list to keep going.
Went to Noize Sektor at the very bottom and even though they are listed they have NO buoy OUT at all i wonder if they only put it out for events.??

it would be handy to know how much XP you had when you started as this effects the amount gained (you seem to be gaining the amount i would gain on a X2 on a X1 with my current XP for example), and if your picking up coins you mention seeing as this is a variable

I started out at the bottom of the barrel I only fished for about 30 minutes if that before getting the delux rod / collecting coins at the same time. So far i am doing mostly x1 events as i started going to locations from the bottom of the list to the top..... I am doing day2 as we speak sorry its been a few days since i logged in to do this but have had some RL things to have to do as well..... and since you say that  my rank is a variable i will also as of tomorrow (day 3) start stating my starting rank and end rank as well at the end of the day.
