Fishing

Fishing is an activity that allows the player to capture fish from rivers and oceans. When equipped with a fishing rod and bait, the player can approach designated Fishing Spots and cast a line into the water.

Fishing Day is an annual festival that celebrates fishing and is an ample source of rare and difficult fish, such as Emperor and King quality fish. These rare fish may make good gifts for the Day of the Bright Sun later in the month.

Controls[edit | edit source]

  1. To cast a line, the player needs to approach a designated fishing spot and press the left mouse button.
    • The player consumes 6 stamina points per cast.
    • Bait is consumed when the player chooses to begin reeling.
  2. When a fish bites onto the hook (indicated by an exclamation mark), use the left mouse button to start reeling. Reeling will increase the tension which is indicated by the red bubble within the white bubble.
  3. Hold the left mouse button to reel the line.
  4. While reeling, keep the white bubble on the fish by moving the mouse. When the white bubble is too far off, it will turn red. Stop reeling when that happens and move the now red bubble back onto the fish.
  5. Continue reeling until the fish is captured. A small figure above the player's fishing rod shows how much longer the player will need to reel. The fish is captured when the figure reaches 0.00.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Fish Encyclopedia skill in action

  1. If the red bubble (tension) fills the white bubble, the line snaps and the fish will escape.
    • It is recommended to only reel the fish in when the white bubble is on the fish to avoid quickly overfilling the tension bubble.
    • The red bubble shrinks when the white bubble is on the fish while not reeling. Especially with tough fish like goliaths, these reeling breaks are necessary between reeling attempts.
  2. The skill Fish Encyclopedia allows the player to identify which fish is currently biting, which is very useful for only catching specific fish.
  3. Timer is paused but time does pass while the player is fishing: once the player reels a fish in, the amount of time they spent catching it is substracted from the timer. The time spent per fishing attempt is capped at one in-game hour; if the player spends more than one hour reeling the fish in, only one hour will be substracted from the timer.

Special items[edit | edit source]

Fish Display.png

A pair of same-species fish can be bred together to produce another fish of the same quality as the parents. For example, two emperor Goliath can be bred to spawn another emperor Goliath, or two Wiser Fish can be bred to produce another Wiser fish.
