The augmented crystal fishing rod is a level 70 Invention tool that is created by using an augmentor on a crystal fishing rod. Being able to augment a crystal fishing rod requires the discovery of the fishing rod-o-matic at level 22 in Invention. The augmented crystal rod includes the success chance modifier of the unaugmented crystal rod.[1] It provides the same experience upon disassembly as the fishing rod-o-matic, but, unlike the rod-o-matic, the augmented crystal rod can only be used at fishing spots that would normally require a fishing rod, fly fishing rod, or heavy rod.

The augmented crystal rod is commonly compared to the fishing rod-o-matic; the differences between the two are further expanded upon below. The main appeal to the augmented crystal rod is the boost to catching fish, as well as the speed at which one can be created due to not requiring any components; both of these ultimately result in faster fishing experience rates, but come with a higher cost than the rod-o-matic. Due to the cost of crystal tool siphons, it's recommended to disassemble crystal rods at level 10, instead of siphoning them at level 12.

The Augmented crystal 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.
