NOW you mine fish.

Unobtainable Object

Fishaxe is an object unobtainable by players through normal means. This item's information is present in the game files, but not intended by developers to be in players' possession.

Fishaxe is a developer-only tool type item that is able to mine large areas of blocks. Tiy first referenced it in a Twitch stream, calling it an "admin hax fish axe".

The Fishaxe deals damage 4 times per second to blocks in a 7x7 square. It mines very quickly, and is the most efficient mining tool yet seen aside from its upgrades Super Fishaxe and Fishaxe (Drops).

It is not yet known if the fishaxe will be released in game, or will remain a developer only item.


The Fishaxe is likely a reference to Monty Python & The Holy Grail in which King Arthur is asked to cut down "The mightiest tree in the forest" with a herring.

The Fishaxe could also be a reference to a VGCats comic about new FFXI players yelling about how to do basic things. The phrase "How I mine for fish?" being the specific one.
