who has an ebisu??
Post about Eden, gameplay mechanics, your love of FFXI, whatever!
I wasn't aware this was the case, good to know though. Does this include the "+ fishing skill" items?
The reason I ask is I just had a break on Ogre Eel (35) while using a Halcyon Rod, and my fishing skill is 33+4. It is supposed to be unbreakable.
Also, when I was fishing for Giant Catfish (31) I was getting a good amount of line breaks until I hit 17+4 (ten levels from the cap) and stopped getting line breaks altogether.
It just seems like the fishing gear didn't help me in the first example, but did in the second.
In the past it seemed like I could use great blue and the wiki to figure out where to skill up, and if it said "unbreakable" that meant I would be safe from rod breaks while skilling up. It's a bit tougher if that isn't the case, still doable though.
Ah, yeah sorry. I forgot to mention I was using Clothespole for them, but I wasn't getting rod breaks anyway, just a lot of line breaks until i got within 10 skill levels of the cap.
Thanks for the responses, good to know it is a bug and not the online documentation being incorrect.
