I think it’s in all servers… will we have to wait until next week patch? :confused:

It seems only the little cast message is broken. Bites/catches are still working normally.


Hello @CaptRdBeard

I can confirm, the message showing up doesn’t say “landed on hotspot”, but “shallow” or “deep”. This is indeed a (visual) bug.

However, this doesn’t has any impact on bites/ catches.

Have a great day in Aeternum!

You guys are awesome for catching this! I will be sure to let the developers know for review and testing. In the mean time, any screenshots you may get will be helpful. Feel free to include those if possible.

I made a post about this previously. This is a screenshot of my screen as the bait hits the water. No longer correctly displaying “Landed on Hotspot”. I still get fish at the normal Hotspot rates though.

Server: Styx (EU)
Position: [9085.918, 2812.607, 50.855]
Hotspot: Windsward Broad Fishing Hotspot just outside the settlement
Hotspot active: yes

I had a similar issue on EU Central Server “Kurhah”

At the 3 star secret fishing hotspot at the waterfall in Weaver’s Fen position [10669, 5818.75], if the bait lands in the hotspot it won’t show the “Landed in Hotspot” and the hotspot does not work. However when the bait is thrown a bit behind the hotspot it works. So the actual hotspot and the fish circle on the water that’s supposed to show where the hotspot is don’t align properly.

That hotspot was always buged, you have to throw the bait further of the spot, like inside the waterfall

3 hotspots that I tested today are broken, same behavior

It’s also worth mentioning the Everfall hotspot near Longshadow Enclave, on the East Side of Everfall, doesn’t recognise as being unlocked regardless of your fishing level. This occurs on Iroko EU.

can confirm, still an issue
