Arcanite Fishing Pole's new model.

The Arcanite Fishing Pole is the second-best fishing pole available for fishing.


This item is a competitive reward from the quest N Fishing [1-60] Grand Prize, the first-prize turn-in for the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza.

The Arcanite Fishing Pole has no explicit level requirement, however, one must be level 10 to train in Artisan level fishing in order to reach fishing skill level 300 and be able to equip it. You can acquire it earlier, but you will not be able to use it.


  • For a long time, the Arcanite Fishing Pole was the best available. With the introduction of the  [Underlight Angler], it is now only second-best.
    • A previous patch increased the bonus from +35 to +40.
  • In the game, it is wielded by Salty El and by Silver Blade Sailors.
