Fishing with the extractor

A dwarven fish extractor is an item obtained from dwarven toolboxes on Treasure Hunter, and from inactive versions available after 13 July 2016.

The fish extractor can be used to either catch double the amount of fish with no Fishing experience gained, or used to double the amount of experience with no fish caught. Once activated, there is no way to turn the fish extractor off; it does not require bait and lasts for 100 charges.

Once all of the charges have been used, the extractor will break and a message in chat will appear which says "After sustained use, the dwarven fish extractor breaks apart in your hands." If multiple extractors are created they will stack and act as one tool with all the charges (a total of charges equal to (Y x 100) where "Y" is the amount in the stack).

Combinations[edit | edit source]

If the dwarven fish extractor is used with a Fishing rod-o-matic or Augmented crystal fishing rod, the dwarven tool will take priority, and the other items will be ignored in terms of charge drain, perk, and item experience gain. It also takes priority over skillchompas - the skillchompas will not be consumed and no experience for using them will be granted.
However, if the dwarven fish extractor is used while casting Crystallise Seren spell on the node, the dwarven tool will not be used nor consume any charges as the Crysallised node will be prioritised over the tool.

If the double experience mode is used with a pair of Fishing experience-boosting gloves from the Fist of Guthix Reward Shop, the extra experience from the gloves will be applied before the experience is doubled. In the case of raw swordfish, at least 400 experience will be gained per fish caught.

The dwarven fish extractor will work with floating crystals on Tarddiad, with divine locations, and with the 10% chance for double loot from divine locations from Guthixian Caches. It also works with Fishing urns and will charge the Fishing accumulator. Players will also receive prawn balls and prawn crackers whilst using the extractor.

During certain bonus XP events (such as Double XP Weekends and the 2016-17 New Year 10% bonus XP event) the dwarven fish extractor cannot be used. Even if the item is in the player's inventory, it will not activate in either double experience or double resource mode, and charges will not be used. They work in combination with knowledge bombs.

The dwarven fish extractor will not provide bonus experience or extra fish if the fury shark outfit is set to consume mode. Charges will not be used.

Fishing for raw wobbegongs will still yield 100 wobbegongs per fishing spot.

The dwarven fish extractor works with Grace of the elves stored porters when set to double resource mode, catching two fish at a time and banking both fish at a cost of only one porter charge.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • patch 19 July 2021 (Update):
    • You will now receive a warning message when attempting to use a Dwarven tool in resource mode on a divine location while the 'Shared Knowledge' buff is active. Previously, the buffs would wipe each other out and players would lose both benefits while still consuming tool charges.
  • patch 1 September 2020 (Update):
    • Using the Dwarven Fish Extractor on a crystallised Fishing spot no longer requires bait.
  • patch 16 September 2019 (Update):
    • Dwarven tools with 1 charge left now correctly use the plural 'charges' when checking charges.
  • patch 30 August 2016 (Update):
    • Dwarven chainaxe and dwarven fish extractors now correctly deplete the rare resource twice as fast if double-resources mode is selected.
    • Dwarven chainaxe and dwarven fish extractors now correctly deplete the rare resource (at the same speed as other tools) when double-XP mode is selected.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Using a fish extractor will fill a fishing urn regardless of which mode is selected.
  • If the extractor is used on double experience mode while on a daily challenge, it will not count towards the challenge. Likewise, if the extractor is set to double gathering mode, any double catch will also count towards the challenge, effectively speeding up your challenge by twice the speed. This also works with the Fishing cape perk.
  • During the animation of the extractor, the accordion style bellow moves the wrong way. During the first part of the animation, water should be pressed out instead of being drawn up while the bellow is pressed down. During the second part, it should draw water up instead of pressing it out as the bellow expands.
  • It is possible to obtain fishing rocks when used.
  • The extractor still performs its animation, though it does not use charges, during a Double XP Weekend.
  • When used on double fish mode in combination with bare-handed fishing, instead of catching four fish when you manage to catch two at once, you will catch three fish.
  • In resource mode, the additional catch provided will count for additional progress during a Yak track fishing task. However, the similar dwarven chainaxe will not count the additional log for a woodcutting task.
