New World Fishing
For those explorers who are looking to take a break from the hardships of combat, pick up a rod and hit the lakes of Aeternum. Fishing is a more laid back adventure in the game, however, it is just as complex and important as many other aspects of the Amazon New World Trade Skills system.
Where do you learn fishing?
When you finish the 1st few quests in the game you will be directed to a local settlement. Around level 10 you will have access to quests located around Grenville.
There is a lake located between the settlement and this location that will have quests that will grant you a basic fishing rod and allow you to start collecting baits to begin your fishing journey.
Once you have your rod, how do you actually fish?
Once you have equipped your fishing rod you can cast it by holding your left mouse button.
Once the hook is in the water wait for a bite. Once you have a fish on you will get the direction to reel in the fish. You can do this by holding the left click, however, you don’t want to just hold it down because the line will snap. Use the indicator on your screen to pay attention to the tension on your line…do not let the indicator go red or you will lose your catch.
What is bait, and how do you use it in New World?
Fishing bait allows you to add bonuses to your fishing in Amazon New World. By equipping a bait to your line you will be able to increase the chances of catching rarer fish in the lakes and streams of Aeternum.
Each bait will have different perks based on where you are fishing so be sure to check what bait you are using. Fresh water baits should be used for in-land locations where as Salt Water Baits are for coastal fishing locations.
Bonus loot from Fishing in Amazon New World?
If you thought it was only fish that you can reel in, then you are wrong. Every time that you cast your line you will have a chance to pick up some bonus rare loot with very, very good rewards.
Here is an example of a chest that we pulled in during the beta to give you an idea of some of the rewards that you have available.
