Fishing is one of the side activities in the New World MMORPG. It can reward you with different types of fish you can use for cooking useful food or just for selling at the market. It’s also a nice way to rest a little if you are tired from exploring and fighting. In this article, we will bring you all the important information about fishing.

Fishing Rod

First of all, you need a Fishing Rod to start. You can either buy it or make it yourself. It can be crafted using Engineering Tradeskill. Right now, there are 5 tiers of rods and 11 unique perk types.

The rod works similarly to all the other gathering equipment. You just have it in your inventory and use it when you want. Also, there are different types of rods in the game.

Baits

A proper Bait is what makes your fishing process more enjoyable and rewarding. It gives a bonus for the size or quality of the fish you can catch. It’s possible not to use bait, but you will hardly be able to catch something great in this case.

Using bait is very simple. Press “Equip Bait” when you hold the rod and you will see a special window for this. There are two general categories of Baits:

Fresh Water Baits - are the best for all the “inner” water like swamps, lakes, and rivers.
Salt Water Baits – are used for the sea/ocean water. Aeternum is an island and is surrounded by the ocean.

Also, you can change the bait when you want. Just press the “Change Bait” key and you will see the menu again.

Fishing Technique

Part 1: Casting

Now you are ready. Hold your default “Cast” key to start. You will see a nice animation showing how your character prepares for the process. You will also see a casting range indicator. You can control the casting range by holding the cast key. The longer you hold the key, the larger the range will be. Note that the largest range isn’t always necessary.

Part 2: Hooking

After the casting is finished, you need to wait for a little until the floating icon appears on the screen. Watch the icon carefully, and it will show you what to do. Now, wait until the fish eats the bait. When the fish is about to eat it, the float will start moving up and down fast. Get ready! You will have only several seconds to hook the fish. Successful hook! This indicates that you can now start to Reel in.

Part 3: Reeling In

When you start to Reel in, always keep an eye on the Tension indicator. It reacts to your actions. If it’s green, you do everything right. Try to keep it green or orange. High tension, the tension becomes high. If the indicator becomes orange, you need to lower the tension. Slow down, or you will lose. That’s all. Now you can repeat all the above steps to catch something else.

Leveling Up the Skill

This profession has a dedicated skill line. You receive a Fishing Profession Experience every time you catch something. The more you practice, the higher your skill becomes.

Higher skill allows you to discover Fishing Hotspots - special places on the map where you receive a boost to bite speed and where your chances of getting rare fish increase greatly. If you are a true fisherman, these places will help you a lot!

In general, the process of catching a fish is rather challenging and interesting. It may look difficult at the beginning, but many players say it’s really fun and enjoyable. For more tips and guides, feel free to browse here.
