— In-game description

Fishing Power.png Fishing Power is an attribute available during fishing that is stated in the hero panel tab Fishing. The current fishing power as well as the recommended fishing power can be found when hovering the hook icon while fighting fish. The attribute improves fishing by granting a higher chance to catch a fish of higher rarity and by increasing the size of your marker when fighting fish. It is available exclusively through the Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons expansion.


(1) Controllable bar. (2) Difficulty of the pond (red, yellow or green). (3) Level of fishing party bonus. (4) Progress bar of fishing progress.
  • Fishing power increases the chance to catch a fish of higher rarity, and increases the size of your marker when fighting fish. The marker is not further increased once the equipped fishing power exceeds the recommended fishing power.
  • Players can increase fishing power by equipping bait and lure, by using consumable items, or by catching fish while on a skiff with the Fishing Party mastery.
  • The hook icon on the left while fighting fish changes its color depending on the recommended fishing power and player's equipped fishing power. The icon is green (Hook (green).png) if the player's fishing power is greater than the recommended one, yellow (Hook (yellow).png) if it is barely below the threshold, and red (Hook (red).png) if insufficient fishing power compared to the recommended is used.
