How many feathers do you need for 99 fishing at Barb?

Answered by Tom Adger

To reach level 99 Fishing at Barbarian Fishing, you will need a substantial amount of feathers. The exact number can vary depending on your fishing efficiency and the method you use, but I can provide you with a rough estimate.

Barbarian Fishing is a popular and efficient method for leveling up Fishing quickly. It involves catching Leaping Fish at Otto’s Grotto, which requires feathers as bait. To maximize your experience gains, it is recommended to use the “drop trick” method, where you drop the fish as soon as you catch them, allowing you to catch more fish in a shorter amount of time.

On average, players can catch around 250-300 Leaping Fish per hour at level 70 Fishing. This number can increase as you level up and become more proficient in Barbarian Fishing. Each Leaping Fish requires one feather as bait.

To calculate the total number of feathers needed, we need to estimate the number of fish you will catch from your current Fishing level to level 99. Let’s assume you start at level 70 and aim to reach level 99.

The experience required to reach level 99 Fishing from level 70 is approximately 13,034,431. At an average experience rate of 35,000 experience per hour, it would take around 373 hours to reach level 99. During this time, you can catch approximately 250-300 Leaping Fish per hour.

Assuming you catch 275 Leaping Fish per hour, the total number of fish caught would be 275 fish/hour * 373 hours = 102,475 fish.

Since each Leaping Fish requires one feather as bait, you would need approximately 102,475 feathers to reach level 99 Fishing at Barbarian Fishing.

Feathers are readily available at fishing shops and can be purchased in packs. The cost of feathers can vary depending on the current market price, but at full stock, they usually cost 2 gp each. Therefore, to obtain all the feathers you need, it would cost slightly more than 500,000 gp (102,475 feathers * 2 gp/feather).

Please note that these numbers are estimates and can vary based on your Fishing level, experience rate, and other factors. Additionally, prices and availability of feathers may change over time, so it’s always a good idea to check the current prices before making your purchase.

I hope this information helps you plan your journey to 99 Fishing at Barbarian Fishing. Good luck on your fishing adventures!
