|Cost (Refund)||Donation/Offers/Player to player Trading (N/A)|
Description: Red Love Chum casts a love spell on fish that all types cannot resist. You will almost always catch a fish with it and you'll NEVER LOSE a piece of it. It's a special bait for those who help support the application.
Red Love Chum provides numerous benefits over normal chums;
- With Red Love Chum, you will catch a fish ~95% of the time when using it. Plus it's only used when you catch a fish, unlike the other chums which may float away or get stolen.
- Another major benefit of Red Love Chum is that it increases the speed of your pole leveling (see Pole Leveling) and levels your pole even if you did not catch a fish. Additionally it gives a +2 bonus to your pole's level, so you can catch fish at higher pole level requirements.
- If used in Sans Culpra prior to having the Scuba Fishing License each cast counts as 4 for meeting the requirements for the License.
- If used in Icelantica, Sig's Lab or Parribea, Red Love Chum will give +200 goodness/evilness points after every cast.
- Users have a greater chance at finding RLC in treasure chests when using this chum and there is a 30% chance of a treasure chest having FLC, for 3 weeks after purchasing RLC.
- Red Love Chum increases your chances to catch the top 4 fish of the location you are in by 25%. This is the exact same bonus you also get from a maxed level pole, so if you have both in effect you will have the effect twice. (50% better chance for the top 4 fish). (Note in practice it may not make much difference, if the chance is one in a hundred (1%) a 50% boost to it would make it a 1.5% chance instead. So, without a thorough statistical analysis it's hard to see the effect in action).
- RLC provides a greater chance of catching quest fish.
- RLC users will typically receieve extra deckhand checks! (Generally at least one every ~2 hours.)
- And purchasers of RLC will be entitled to faster Tournament casts. Instead of waiting 20 seconds between tournament casts, you will only wait 8 seconds. (No minimum purchase, doesn't expire)
- Travel between islands is 5 times faster with any donations over $10. Donations less than $10 will speed up your traveling by 2 times. Speed boosts last one calendar month.
- Not related to gameplay, but the final benefit is that you will not see advertisements on Fish Wrangler for 30 days after a donation.
Note that the reduced travel times, faster tournament casts and the filtering of advertisements are only available through RLC donations.
