We’ve been receiving feedback on the difficulty of reaching fishing level 20 here and through bug reports – and after further evaluation, we agree with you. While absolutely possible, it’s very challenging for anyone to get there anytime soon. In that light, we’re going to make some changes in an upcoming update to the Test Realm.

First, we’re going to leave the level cap at 15 as it is on Live for a while. The bump to level 20 isn’t needed right now.
Second, we’re going to smooth out the experience needed to advance to the next rank at higher levels.
Third: we’re also toning down the sentinel fish a bit.

With future updates to Live (summertime and beyond), we’ll look into adding more fish to catch, and potentially some new quests, and spells in your arsenal.

Thanks for your constructive feedback and helping us test out new content before it goes live!
Thanks falmea

Sentinel fish put me off fishing entirely. Thanks for addressing that :)

Now what would be nice is some Ice Fishing in Polaris only if Ki adds new species fish for that area. In other words fish you would mostly find in the arctic Paul the Wizard.

Well, I did think about having many more fish to catch in the available worlds, so, I'm cool with that, along with new fishing quest & spells.

I'll be waiting to view more made.

The chests were mentioned earlier and I wanted to bring up something that I've wondered about. For example: when I cast a "Winnow Myth Fish" spell and catch a Chest, why will a Fire school wand be in it? Shouldn't it be a Myth school wand? That goes for when I cast "Reveal Fish School" and see that the shadow I'm looking at is a Death school fish. If I catch it and it's a chest, shouldn't it contain Death school gear and not from a different school that what the "Reveal" spell said it was?

My 2¢…

The same reason you can defeat a Myth school enemy in combat and receive Fire-specific gear as a drop. Also, Chests aren't school specific and they aren't affected by a Winnow spell so there's no reason for their contents to be linked to any school.

If the would just give more xp for the fish according to their rank like they do in the gardening. then it would be a bit easier. I have most of the fish and I am still only a level 10. Not sure I want to fish 3,550 fish to reach level 11 and how long that would take. Oh well.
