Pearls have become a bit of a precious resource with the introduction of the Aquamarine patch. You will need a couple of them to create the new Aquamarine Sword! So, we're going to take a look at what you'll need to do to collect pearls in Roblox Islands aka Skyblock.
How to Get Pearls
Time needed: 1 hour.
The main way to obtain pearls in Islands is to go fishing! They are a random drop when you fish, just like the propeller. Here's a step-by-step look with details on how-to obtain them.
- Craft a Fishing Rod
You will need to have a Workbench for this, so make sure to have one placed on your island. The fishing rod requires 10 wood, so chop down some of your trees to obtain it! Once you have the wood, head over to your Workbench and craft it! Add the fishing rod to your toolbar so you can use it easily.
- Go to the Pond at the Main Hub
Head to the vendor area that is through the purple portal on your island. If you go to the left, you will see a pond with fish in it. There is also a pond on Slime Island that can be used if this area is crowded!
- Catch Fish
You will now need to just cast your line out and catch some fish. Just click to cast a short distance, or hold the click for a bit and then let go to cast a further distance. Make sure to aim for a fish and they should grab the line. Click to reel it in once you see bubbles coming out of your lure!
- Obtain the Pearl!
You will need to keep fishing over and over again to hopefully get yourself a pearl. Each time you catch a fish you have a chance to obtain one. This can be a very long process, so you might be fishing for a while. You could also catch a Propeller, which is another rare item to look out for!
- Use Bait to Accelerate the Process!
There's a way you can speed up this process if you don't have the patience for it! You can craft yourself some bait, which will cost you 3 carrots to craft each one. You can create a carrot farm with seeds or you can purchase a totem to plant them. However you want to do it, you'll need quite a bit of carrots to farm up the bait. Once you have yourself some bait, go to the fishing hole and use the bait. This increases your luck when fishing for 1 minute and thirty seconds. This should double your chances of obtaining a pearl, so it's well worth doing!
The other way to get pearls is to just visit other player's islands and purchase them via a vending machine. It's probably going to be hard to find people with a lot of pearls to sell, but it might actually be easier to do it this way because gold is much easier to get!
