Fishing rod-o-matic detail.png

The fishing rod-o-matic is an enhanced fishing tool researched at level 22 Invention. It can be used to fish in most fishing spots when wielded.

When they are first made, rod-o-matics are stackable in the bank. Upon equipping it for the first time, they become unstackable, but can be converted back into a stackable version if it has no experience or gizmos attached to it by right-clicking.

The rod-o-matic is commonly compared to the augmented crystal fishing rod; the differences between the two are further expanded upon below. The main appeal to the rod-o-matic is the cost; it's possible to obtain the materials for a rod for under 200,000 coins, which is much lower than the potential 600,000+ price tag of a crystal rod, not including the cost of potential crystal siphons. This makes the rod-o-matic a cheaper way of training Invention through Fishing, but brings slower Fishing experience as it both does not have the bonus to fishing experience that the crystal rod does, and requires the player to disassemble various items to obtain the components needed to make it.

The Fishing rod-o-matic 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.
