    This week in Skybounds, watch your bobber dip under & get hooked yourself because there are plenty of new changes to take a bite out of!

    [​IMG]

    This week’s update introduces a new fishing quest-line to Skybounds!
    In order to begin tossing hooks with this new content , players will have to first achieve “Level 10”. Doing so will allow for conversation and quests with the “Old Fisherman” in the market.

    [​IMG]

    He’ll task you with several small quests, to first build the rod & strengthen it. However if you go the extra mile to help this withered old soul with his qualms, you’ll be rewarded handsomely for your efforts with an improved rod and with it chances at reeling much better fish & loot!

    You’ll be able to further bolster the usefulness of your fishing rod through its new corresponding skill trees and upgrades! This includes braided fishing line to unlock higher loot categories, better bait for faster “bite” rate, a sinker for better loot chances as well as the ability to place “chum” bait using any raw meat to allow for a brief period of instant catches.

    The additional “Geologist” and “Treasure Hunter” upgrades offer variation to your fishing experience. The former will augment your catches based off of proximity to certain block types, and the latter will offer additional unique loot chances for better rewards. So cast out a line and get started making riches through this merry riverside pastime!



    [​IMG]
    Alongside the new fishing update, comes some challenge changes to improve your overall challenge experience, and hopefully remedy some of your challenge-related woes.

    [​IMG]
    Skybounds is now offering “Tag Filtering” for challenges. Every challenge within the game can be designated atleast 1 tag. You are able to set which tags you would like to be “banned”, meaning that these challenges will be removed from your challenge pool and will only become accessible or assigned if you specifically select them through the existing challenge selector!

    This means that challenge types you’re fed up with, simply have no interest in, or are incapable of currently completing can be disregarded in favor of a preferred play experience. So please enjoy your new tagging powers and the freedoms that can come with them!



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Also once again Skybounds is offering a 10% off weekend sale! If you feel like snagging a deal, now’s the time to capitalize!



    [​IMG]

    For some reason i am unable to connect to sky bounds right after the update and the connection right after to specifically Skybounds is 99ms. is this a problem? as well as the fact that i can't use my fishing rod more than once or else i would have to relog. thx for paying attention to this note.

    If you mean something like a macro those are not allowed, in ordser to earn stuff from say mining and now fishing you need to earn it rather then an automated system. Just wanted to say so nothing happens! c:
