Need help with Fishing

Recommended Posts

Pretty much what it says on the tin.

I would rather not use mousekeys if possible.

• Could i still low alch (or is it hi alch) the fish and do barbarian fishing? What are the xp rates?

• Is it worth fly fishing?

• Are rocktails good? And if so at what level?

 

I'm 89 fishing

 

Thanks in advance.

• Is it worth fly fishing?

• Are rocktails good? And if so at what level?

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Could you post your fishing level please?

Answer in bold.

Is it worth fly fishing? At your level you should do barbarian fishing to 90 then rocktails.

Are rocktails good? And if so at what level? Rocktails are good as soon as you can fish them, there are better xp rates but rocktails also give a decent amount of profit.

Fly fishing is a big no no at your level.

 

Heavy rod fishing would be fast experience, whereas rocktails would be decent xp along with profit.

They'll be fine at level 90, use a familiar for additional boots.

 

You could also alc whichever stackable/noted item while you fish at rocktails for additional experience since alchemy spells do not interrupt the fishing. You will have to sacrifice some alching speed however, but since it's added xp it's worth it still.

Yeah but would i be able to keep this up consistently enough for xp rates to be worth it? Because the last time i did heavy rod fishing and alching at the same time i was using mouse keys.

 

What would be the rates per hour at heavy rod fishing with that setup?

 

Thanks for the help so far.

I've never actually kept track of extra magic xp I earned this way, but I did get a few levels on my way from 90 to 99 that way while I fished rocktails.

 

Assuming you alch every 5 seconds, xp would be around 47k/hr, but that could be off.

 

I found it easier to maintain at rocktails as all you really have to do is click every few seconds to alc, and move along with the fishing spots until you have an inventory full of rocktails. Alched battlestaves I made with crafting.

 

In any case it is additional experience to the fishing xp without sacrificing any, so in my opinion it's always worth it for a bonus. |^_^|

For barbarian fishing, you can hi-alch but you won't keep up so you will have to cast a few low-alchs too.

 

For rocktails, yes alching (the right item) while fishing is efficient, but the fishing itself really isn't provided you are doing some random moneymakers (any kind of dragon, farming, MTK etc.).
