Uncle Stan’s Pole and Lure is a small hidden ‘questline’
It will require A LOT of fishing to complete!
Once you have your pole and lure you will able to use them to fish up some interesting items!
Previously this was Pets, Minions, a Mount, Costumes and Dimension Items. In 2018 the loot table was changed to focus more ont he Dimension Items. The Minions were removed from the loot table, I’m unsure at the moment if the Pets and Mount are still available.
So at the bottom of this page I am creating a list of every item I fish up using Stans Lure from september 2018 onwards. Hopefully this will give you a good picture of what rewards are available and if all that fishing is worth it for you!
Fishing up your Tackle Box
You will first need to fish up Uncle Stan’s Lost Tackle Box
There are only 2 rules to follow when hunting for this…
- Your fishing skill needs to be at least level 420
- Your character needs to be level 62
Everything else is Pure RNG…
- The Tackle Box can be fished up in the Plane of Water, the Planetouched Wilds and the Celestial Lands (The drop rate does seem to be slightly higher in the Celestial Lands and of course by fishing there you are also fishing up fish you can use for current level crafting)
- The RNG does not care if you are using a Fishing Lure or not, so please feel free to use them or not use them!
- The RNG does not care if you are fishing in deep or shallow water – however, I do suggest avoiding schools of fish and sticking to normal open water.
You need to be aware that you may be fishing THOUSANDS of fish up before the Tackle Box drops for you
There are cheevos for the Plane of water and for the Celestial Lands for fishing up 10,000 fish, some players have popped both those cheevos without looting the Tackle Box. There are of course players that have looted the box in their first 100 casts… you just have to hope that RNG is kind to you!
The Questline from the Tackle Box
You will first need to right click your Tackle Box, this will pop the first Quest for you
QUEST 1: FISHING FOR DEALS
PICK UP: Right click the Tackle Box you receive when RNG blesses you!
TO COMPLETE: Take Uncle Stan’s Lost Tackle Box to Uncle Stan in Choreburg.
Uncle Stan can be found in Choreburg at /setwaypoint 5914 5552
He will be marked with a quest speech bubble on your map.
Speak to Uncle Stan and hand the quest in.
When you hand the quest in you will receive Stan’s Dyna-therm Fishin’ Pole Recipe
You will need a fishing skill level of at least 450 in order to learn this recipe
Simply right click the recipe to add it to your recipe book
Crafting Your Pole
To craft Stan’s Dyna-therm Fishin’ Pole you will need a ‘copy’ of each of the previous poles.
You may have kept each one as you upgraded them, or you may have quite a bit of crafting to do now!
The poles are crafted using your fishing skill. They take a few old mats and also cost quite a lot in vendor mats, around 170plat in total to get everything crafted.
What to do now?
Now that you have your pole… fish with it!
It’s time to pray to those RNG gods again as you now await your second bit of luck.. the recipe for Stans Super Secret Lure.
Stans Super Secret Lure
Although it doesn’t matter which zone you use the lure in, I recommend you use it in the plane of water, and then just keep fishing til you have the 12 Oori Remora and 12 Skygrazer Manta needed to craft the next lure! (Remember you can use a Typical Lure to fish up only those fish)
Crafting a lot of these Lures at once is a bad plan because they don’t stack up in your bags! Each Lure takes one bag slot and they will soon be overflowing!
