Project Holiday[]

If you would like to HELP, FW Wikia NEEDS the involvement of many 'FW players & Wikia users' to make contributions to find many of the HOLIDAY CONTEST pole/addon images, as well as find their names, pictures, and the descriptions of them (if they have ANY screenshots saved) to fill-in missing data and in order to make these COMPLETE articles. It would help to also petition Joe to either bring back some of these poles for either possible FUTURE QUESTS, Contests or at least "a gallery" so that we can SEE the pole's specifics. (This is a scavenger hunt project so it appears outside the Talk. This message will be removed when the addons/descriptions are again "viewable" back in the MAIN part of the game.) For more on the reason for this, please see NOTES section below.

Valentine's Contest 2021[]

On February 10, 2021, the Heart Strings pole became available for purchase again. However, the leveling on the previous pole was restarted to level 1.[1]


It is unknown what the original upgrades and prices were but as of February 2021, there are three upgrades.

Pole leveling starts at 30 exp. per level.

Joe Faron disabled being able to equip or view this pole after the Contest had concluded. I've found some of the addon pictures here, but still missing the names, pictures, descriptions of them & looking for costs as well. I got lucky with the Abolisher & pieces of Fir Branch for the holiday poles, but Heart Strings is the most incomplete. Here's a example:

The developer had decided on storing the pole which kept from being able to use, equip, or view it after the holiday period had ended. The reasons why are currently unknown, but we were told the poles were put away, much like decorations.
However, we also can't see any of the artwork of the add-ons, descriptions, etc now besides a "nod" on our profiles about the pole level & number of fish caught. None of these poles have any quests associated with them either.

Equip/View links + Errors[]


  • This was the link used to equip the Heart Strings. Even if you bought it before, it returns this msg:

Error - You do not own the Heart Strings!

  • If trying to use the purchase link to buy it, you are given a msg

Error The Heart Strings belongs to the special Red Luv Contest which is not currently active!

  • Same with trying to view it within poles & addons. You will get this message:

Cannot view this pole! Pole may only be visible in other region.

It appears no poles are listed... View all available poles?

Pole Exclusive Fish[]

All poles have fish that can only be caught exclusively by it. These fish were only caught regularly by leveling up the holiday themed pole, but now require LG to be used. There were 9 fish released to catch for the Heart Strings. They are:

Red Luv Fish Level 0+
Sweetheart Fish Level 5+
Heart Puffer Fish Level 15+
Love Hate Fish Level 25+
Queen of Hearts Fish Level 40+
