Why should i skill fishing?

There are a few ways to get highest tier food such as rogues chests, or larran's keys. Still, these ways are pretty risky to do. To skill fishing is basically the safer method to obtain high tier food such as, anglerfishs, manta rays, dark crabs which are all necessary for doing bosses. For Ironmen or even HCIM this skill is even more important since the "Food and Potions shop", eastern of home is capped when playing on Ironman-mode. Means for Ironmen you are only able to buy food up to Sharks.



Starting at home, head north, pass the well of goodwill, until you arrive to the fishing place. This place has nearly everything you need to start fishing (exerpt the angler set). There is a nearby bank and the fishing shop. This shop has basically every necessary tool you'll need for you fishing journey.

1: You can attach the smouldering stone on the dragon harpoon to create a infernal harpoon which provides the chance to cook a fish instantly while fishing.

While wearing the angler set you will receive additional XP during fishing.

Quick info for Skilling sets:

All hats, bodies, and legs, give 2% XP boost
if you have gloves and boots, both will give 1% XP boost each
if you only have one of them, the one you have will give you 2% XP boost (so basically reach 8% with one set part off)
if you have the full set you will receive additional 2% XP boost on top, means for a full skilling set you receive
8% + 2 % = 10% XP boost
