Message in a Bottle is a special item you can obtain randomly in Melvor Idle while fishing. It’s also one of the rarest items in the game, driving some players crazy with its insane scarcity. But, it is the only thing that can unlock the secret fishing area. Fortunately, there are a few ways to increase your chances of getting this legendary bottle.
How to Get Message In a Bottle in Melvor Idle
Message in a Bottle is considered a “special item” which means you should choose a fishing spot that gives you the highest chance to get those – preferably, Tench of Despair or Open Waters. You should choose the fastest fish to catch, to maximize your chances of getting the item. Unfortunately, that still only gives you a 2% chance of getting a special item – and there’s only a 0.15% chance that that item will be the bottle you’re looking for.
Getting the Best Odds
Obviously, to get the best results, you should come prepared – equip your best rod and the Amulet of Fishing. Having fishing at level 50 or higher will increase the chance of getting a special item by 3%, so it’s a must as well. On top of that, you should have the last mastery pool checkpoint unlocked, as it will give you a 25% chance to receive one extra Special Item. Lastly, you can upgrade your Astrology Ameria Constellation item mastery, for even better chances.
These are the best odds you can have. It can still take a long time to find the Message in the Bottle, but unfortunately, this is the most reliable way to get this item, at least for now. But don’t give up – remember that you can always leave the game to fish on its own.

LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga: All 5 Boarding Party Minikit Locations
The Boarding Party Minikits seem a bit tricky to find, but this guide got you covered.
Minikits are another set of collectibles that players should complete. One of the many requirements to unlock all six Kyber bricks in each level of the game is to collect all Minikits. In Episode IV’s The Boarding Party, you need to find five Minikits to complete the mission. But since Minikit special quests are filled with somewhat challenging tasks, some players find it hard to locate them.
All 5 Boarding Party Minikit Locations in LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga
The five Minikits in The Boarding Party mission are found in locations where you need to do many things, including engaging in battle, jumping a lot, opening doors, solving puzzles, and activating mechanisms. This guide will help you find each one of them with ease.
Minikit #1: Mynock Who’s There
The first Minikit is located at the Boarding party area. To obtain this Minikit, you first need to find all four hidden Supercounters or flying bat-type characters that you’ll encounter throughout the mission.
You’ll find the first Supercounter after passing through the electrical barriers as you obtain the Death Star plans. You need to grapple your way through a hole on the fourth floor for this one.
To find the second Supercounter, drop down the hole where Leia fell during the main story quest and pass through a door with a Hero Terminal. Use a Jedi or Sith character to open the door past the stairs before meeting R2-D2.
The third Supercounter is located at the end of the path where you find the 2nd one, specifically after the section where you release the emergency levers. Use the Stormtrooper’s Force skill to open the door. Look for a hole in the ground.
The last Supercounter can be found by going through the same door before meeting R2-D2, in a room filled with many Stormtroopers and a disco party. Locate the hole in the ceiling, grapple to it, and you should find the fourth bat.
Once all four Supercounters are found, you’ll find the first Minikit at the end of the hall.
For this Minikit, you need to use the Force ability to open a door inside a room separated by glass. From there, fall through the hole and drop down to the floor below. Get past the electrical traps and reach the end of the hallway where you can find the second Minikit.
Minikit #3: Rhythm Rebels
Head back to the disco party room earlier and make everyone dance by using Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Mind Tricks ability. The disco ball will then explode and all you have to do is use its parts to build the third Minikit.
Minikit #4: Gonk This Way
Construct Admiral Ackbar’s hologram and use him to open the door. Once opened, defeat the Stormtroopers that will swarm the room from the other door. Go through the door on the left-hand side and proceed to the next room. There, you need to solve a puzzle that involves simultaneously pressing four buttons. The Force ability will help you finish this part. Once completed, you will find the fourth Minikit.
The last and final Minikit can be found on the escape pod. You will reach a dead-end blocked by clutter and toys, so entry is not possible at this point. Smash your way through them and use the broken parts to build the Minikit.
