Prifddinas Waterfall Fishing is a Fishing activity that is located at the Prifddinas Waterfall between the Meilyr and Crwys Clan districts in Prifddinas.

The waterfall features 3 tiers:

There is a bank chest on the tier 2 platform by the fisherman and Prifddinas Waterfall Fishing Shop in bottom section where the climb up the waterfall starts.

Getting there[edit | edit source]

  • Players must climb the handholds set into the rock face to reach the top of the waterfall. A grapple shortcut, requiring level 90 Agility, Ranged, and Strength, must be traversed in order to reach the fishing spots. Temporary boosts such as extreme strength potions, extreme ranging potions, or overloads will allow the user to access it with level 76 in the respective stats. Players with a lower Herblore level can buy the tradable grand strength potion and grand ranging potion, which will suffice if the player has level 78 Strength and Ranged. For the Agility requirement, a stamina potion will boost 6 levels making level 84 Agility enough; alternately, a particularly fortunate pulse core blast can raise the player's Agility by 7 levels. Unless players have an enhanced grappling hook stored on their tool belt, they will also need to bring a mithril grapple and crossbow. Otherwise access can be gained if the player has built the nearby hidey-hole, which requires a rune crossbow, mithril grapple, and 4 mahogany planks.
  • Players who meet the requirements can teleport here by attuning a skilling portal in the Max Guild Garden to this location which will teleport them to the tier 2 platform next to the bank chest. This requires at least one skill with level 99 or the Quest Cape to access the Garden and 90 Agility, Strength and Ranged to use the teleport. Boosts cannot be used to tune the portal, even if you would otherwise be able to boost your levels to access the waterfall normally.
  • Players can also purchase Waterfall fishing teleports from the reward shop (for 300 urchin points) which can be used to teleport to the top of the waterfall near the bank chest. Using these teleports does not require 90 Agility, Strength or Ranged.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Experience that is gained from waterfall fishing is not affected by the Voice of Seren. Using the following items and buffs will grant up to around 225,000-250,000 fishing experience per hour at level 99 Fishing:

Points and distractions[edit | edit source]

The urchins obtained from fishing count as crystal urchin points which in turn can be spent on rewards from Mhistyll's Prifddinas Waterfall Fishing Shop. Small urchins are worth one point, medium urchins are worth two points, and large urchins are worth three points each.

While fishing at the waterfall players can encounter random events: big urchin, leaping urchins and geyser.

Big Urchin[edit | edit source]

When a big urchin appears, players must pull a big urchin out of the water together. Players who manage to pull it out of the water are awarded 300 Fishing experience and 300 Strength experience, along with 30 small crystal urchins, 20 medium crystal urchins, and 10 large crystal urchins, equivalent to 100 crystal urchin points. After unlocking everything in the shop, this is equivalent to 1,000 Fishing experience.

Leaping Urchin[edit | edit source]

The leaping urchin event consists of leaping urchins that players can try to catch. When the urchins appear, a player has to click it in time to catch it to get a certain amount of small, medium or large urchins. This will also yield 300 Fishing experience and 300 Agility experience.

The possible rewards for catching one are:

The total being equivalent to 100 crystal urchin points, or 1,000 Fishing experience from the shop.

Geyser[edit | edit source]

When a geyser appears, it sprays stacks of crystal urchins around the waterfall area which can then be picked up. 

Small, medium and large urchins appear in random quantities between 1 to 14. 93 Fishing is required to pick up any of these urchins, however this can be bypassed by using Area Loot.
