The Fishing Update

Hello everyone! For this week's content update we are introducing a brand new way to fish on Factions, Skyblock and Prison. Grab yourself a custom fishing rod and bait, then head on over to our special lakes to catch and sell fish for profit!

Fishing Lakes

To get started, you'll need to go to one of the new Lakes using /lakes. There are currently 2 types of lake, The Safe Lake - where you can fish in peace but there will be lower quality fish, and The PvP Lake - where PvP is enabled, but there a higher tiered and better quality fish that you can catch.

How to Fish?

To begin, you'll need to purchase the most basic fishing rod, the Old Rod, from the Fishmonger at the lake to start fishing. You will not be able to use normal fishing rods in the Lake areas.

After you've purchased your custom fishing rod, use it on the lake to begin catching fish! You can upgrade your fishing rod by completing fishing challenge requirements for whichever rod you're currently using. Tasks consist of catching certain types of fish, using particular types of bait and selling a certain amount of fish. You can see what challenges you need to do to upgrade your fishing rod at the Help Menu section at the Fishmonger.

Fishing Rods

There are 5 types of fishing rod that you can upgrade to, the Old Rod, the Novice Rod, the Apprentice Rod, the Sturdy Rod and the Mega rod. The higher the level of rod, the higher the tier of fish you can catch, the lure speed is decreased for speedier catching, and the amount of fish you can catch at once is increased.

Fish and Bait


There are currently 7 different types of fish that you can catch in the Lakes. Abundant fish being the lowest tier, and Mythic the highest tier. You can view the types of fish all of their relevant information at the Fishmonger in the Help Menu.

Abundant Fish - Herring, Krill, Tuna
Normal Fish - Trout, Salmon
Scarce Fish - Sturgeon, Swordfish
Mythic Fish - Shark

As you go up the tiers of fish, the average weight of the fish will be increased as well as how much you can sell it for at the Fishmonger. When you sell your fish, you'll be given money in return.

The quality of the fish also contributes to how much you can sell it for at the Fishmonger, with fish being one of 4 types of quality - Common, Uncommon, Legendary and Epic.


Fishing Bait must be used when catching fish at the Lakes, and you can purchase it directly from the Fishmonger. You'll need a particular type of bait to catch certain fish, with higher tiered bait being needed to catch higher tiered fish.

There are 5 types of bait you can use:

Simple Bait - Herring, Krill, Tuna
Basic Bait - Herring, Krill, Tuna, Trout, Salmon
Advanced Bait - Trout, Salmon, Sturgeon, Swordfish
Pro Bait - Trout, Salmon, Sturgeon, Swordfish, Shark
All-Purpose Bait - Herring, Krill, Tuna, Trout, Salmon, Sturgeon, Swordfish, Shark

Extra Fishing Rewards

Whilst fishing, you may be lucky and find that you'll periodically fish up different types of items instead of just fish! You could fish up any of the following rewards:

  • Money
  • Spawners
  • mcMMO pouches
  • EXP pouches
  • Money pouches
  • Mobcoins
  • Pouch Bundles
