Fishing is a non-combat activity that allows the player to obtain fish, reagents, and recipes.

How to fish

A player must obtain a Fishing Pole by crafting it at the Woodworking Bench, then proceed to any body of water and look for a distinct hotspot. They will be white, bubbling areas with a faint audio cue. Equip your fishing pole, and cast when facing the hotspot by pressing the attack key. Wait until a large splash of water occurs, and reel it in immediately using the attack key. A delay will result in a failure. Hotspots are limited to one cast, and will disappear after you reel in - whether you succeed in the cast or not.


Certain zones have exclusive loot for fishing, in addition to general loot that can be fished in every zone with varying rarity. As a general rule of thumb, you can fish up recipes for the same "tier" as the zone. Farbane Woods fishing spots will yield recipes you learn on the Research Desk, Dunley Farmlands fishing will yield recipes for the Study, and Silverlight Hills fishing will yield Athenaeum recipes.
