    Full Moon Fishing Tournament
    Saturday September 26th to Wednesday September 30th

    [​IMG]

    Over 6 million in prizes!!!
    Anyone can enter tournament - no signup required, no entry fee!

    (95+ fishing is required to catch a "Big Fish", tis by-catch of a sea serpent which is caught offshore in deep waters)

    Post screenshot of catch in this thread.
    Big Fish datestamp must be between 9/26/2015 & 9/30/2015
    Winning fish will be verified ingame so keep fish until end of tourney and don't mount.
    Mounting a fish will remove the datestamp.

    Fishing Feats: How to win these prizes will not be announced rather awarded to the angler who accomplishes a pre-determined feat. For example, there might be a prize for the angler who turns in the 100th fish. The angler who does the pre-determined action will win the prize. I will be submitting a list of these pre-determined feats and prizes to Telamon before the Tournament begins to ensure there isn't a perception of a bias in awarding prizes. My advice is to participate and turn in fish no matter how big or small.

    Let me share with you a tale regarding this 0 stone mounted fish. A prize of this is worthy indeed. In fact, some may consider it a very valuable rare item. Long ago when the world was young, twas difficult to mount an animal…. let alone kill one of worth. During those old moons I fished the seas often, exploring, and finding my way around the realm. As I fished, the seas changed… they became angry, yet more fruitful.
    Anglers began to land fish of stoned weight and we stirred up more monsters. We disturbed the seas.
    However..... before this some used curing and taxidermy & saved the relics of old. Those old fish, crispy mounted… never yielded a weight thus the moons of Felluca and Trammel negated them into a zero sum. (they were mounted before name and datestamps were implemented)
    I believe there were only 3 of the trophies when the weights of the moons passed. This trophy awarded by HateCrime is one of three. I believe one has fell to dust so this trophy may be one of two. Regardless, a rare trophy or not..... it has much significance. FISH ON!!!

    Rules:
    * The tournament will be held Saturday September 26th, 2015 to Wednesday September 30h, 2015. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on/between those dates. (Note: datestamp is based on UOR server time, US Eastern, -4 UTC)
    * Prizes will be distributed the following week.
    * Fish weighed in will be credited to the angler, not who turns. Anyone can submit fish for any angler. Angler must be present to claim winnings.
    * Use as many fishers as you like. Again, fish is credited to angler marked on fish. (some players are using more than one fisher)
    * No sign up required! Simply post a screen shot of your catch but keep it for prize reward and... DO NOT MOUNT FISH. Mounting a fish will erase datestamp. Fish will need to be verified ingame to collect your prize. Only fish weight will only be recorded. You keep your catch.
    * Anglers tied will split the prizes of the two respective places. For example, Anglers tied for 2nd and 3rd place will split the winnings for 2nd and 3rd place.
    Notes on Fishing:
    Double-click on a fishing pole, then click on a body of water. If successful, you will catch a fish. You might catch something more interesting than a fish. Success with this skill also depends on the availability of fish in that specific area.
    0-65 - On land you will fish up Magic Fish, and Normal Fish.
    80+ - Sea Serpents (No SoS Message), Special Fishing Nets.
    90+ - Treasure Maps 100 - Messages in a Bottle (aka MIB) / Waterstained SoS Message
    95+ - You can reel in Big Fish which can be used to make Trophies via Taxidermy Kits.
    You can get to 100% fishing on land, but deep sea fishing gives much faster skill gains.
    Monsters will never spawn by fishing from land.


    Many thanks to the generous sponsors and UOR staff
    who make these Tourneys possible!

    This looks awesome! Could anyone give me a rundown on how this works? This shard is my first time making a fisherman and he's not even done yet. I'd love to find a way to participate, though.

    Try to get your fisherman or multiple fishermen to 95 Fishing Skill and be able to kill a Sea Serpent/ Deep Sea Serpent/ Kraken with your other skills.
    0-65 - On land you will fish up Footwear, Magic Fish, and Normal Fish.
    80+ - Sea Serpents (No SoS Message), Special Fishing Nets.
    90+ - Treasure Maps 100 - Messages in a Bottle (aka MIB) / Waterstained SoS Message
    95+- You can reel in Big Fish which can be used to make Trophies via Taxidermy Kits.
    You can get to 100% fishing on land, but deep sea fishing gives much faster skill gains.
    Monsters will never spawn by fishing from land.

    Starting at 12:00:01AM(Server Time- now EST with the server move) Sept 26 any Big Fish caught will have your Fishers Name and the Weight in Stones with the Date it was caught.
    Take screenshots of all Big Fish you catch and post them, DO NOT MOUNT THEM, save them in the Bank or your House for verification later.


    Big Fish are caught by killing a Sea Serpent/Deep Sea Serpent you fish up in "Deep Water", and loot the Fish from its belly.

    You may Fish with 1-3 accounts at the same time, try to keep all screens visible on one or more monitors to avoid being jailed for AFK Resource Macroing.(pop-up Gumps)

    Fish as much as you feel like for the 5 day Tournament, have fun with it, and hopefully you will get Lucky and make millions off your winnings and all the Nets, Maps, and MiBs/AMiBs you Fish up in your Hunt for the "Big Fish"

    Happy Fishing, Savage.

    @Laretheo - the fish has to be date stamped within the 26-30 timeframe, so it's based on server time (CST I believe) rather than world times.
