The Augmented Tavia's fishing rod is a tier 80 main hand tool, created by using an augmentor on Tavia's fishing rod. Tool gizmos charged with perks may be attached, boosting its fishing abilities. It provides the same experience upon disassembly as the fishing rod-o-matic, but, unlike the rod-o-matic, an Augmented Tavia's fishing rod can only be used at fishing spots that would normally require a fishing rod, fly fishing rod, or heavy rod. It increases the success rate when fishing by 10% when wielded.
The Augmented Tavia's fishing rod uses charges stored in the universal charge pack. When the charge pack runs out of charges, the item loses stats and gizmo effects, and can also no longer gain any equipment experience. Function will resume when the pack is recharged with divine charges.
Additionally, the rod has a chance of granting all three deep sea fishing boosts for 10 minutes to the player using it and for 2 minutes to the surrounding players.
The three deep sea fishing boosts are:
- 5% additional Fishing experience
- 10% chance to gain an additional catch
- 10% fishing rate boost
The Augmented Tavia's fishing rod can be levelled up by using it. The equipment experience required for each level and the effect of disassembly is as follows:
