The Pharoma is a consumable Fishing Gear item. When used, it prevents fish in the immediate area from scurrying away when the water is disturbed, either by players missing with their spear or wading into the water.
Unlike other Gear items, the Pharoma does not need to be equipped at the Arsenal once built in the Foundry. Once in the Plains, players can use the Pharoma by first equipping a Fishing Spear, then bringing up the Gear menu (default ), and selecting the Pharoma from the wheel. Once selected, the Pharoma can then be thrown (default ) into a body of water to take effect.
- When activated, the Pharoma only works on fish that have already spawned in. It will not work on fish that spawn after activation.
- The Pharoma has a 2 minute cooldown between uses.
- Selecting Pharoma as a rank up reward when reaching Trusted only gives a single one, it is recommended to choose something else.
