LotRO Introduces Hobbies with Fishing


Many Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar players are already looking forward to the upcoming Chapter 13 update. I know I am excited by the new zones I may one day see but one of the biggest reasons is that Turbine is finally introducing Hobbies in LotRO. The first hobby? Fishing.

Players can get trained in the art of fish and tackle from Hobby masters in one of these four areas:

  • Bree-town (Scholar’s Stair Archives)
  • Michel Delving (Bird and Baby Inn)
  • Ered Luin (Thorin’s Halls)
  • Rivendell (Hall of Fire)

Once you’ve got your pole, you can go fishing in any area you find water. After you get the hang of it and build some skill, you can add bait to your hook to attract the more illusive fish. Sell your catch, cook it in one of the new fish recipes or have it stuffed for mounting on your wall. I’m not a fan of fishing in real life, more the waiting and drinking beer part of that but surprisingly I’ve spent hours fishing in other games like Zelda and WoW. Maybe it’s the loot.. if only there were purple loot drops in real life I might find fishing more fun.

is it any difference to where you fish at all?
