How to use the Fishing system in Genshin Impact

Bringing more new features in version 2.1, Genshin Impact will now feature a fishing system so you don't drown anymore when trying to catch a fish

Do you already know how to use the Fishing system in Genshin Impact? The novelty will be implemented in the 2.1 version of the game, which is expected to arrive in the game on August 30, along with Raiden Shogun and Sara Konjou banners, and will allow players to start catching fish in Teyvat without having to run. the risk of drowning when the stamnia is gone.

O Hoyolab has released a tutorial on how the game's fishing system will look and shows travelers how the game's fishing system should work. Let's talk about this new thing and teach players (who don't have Mona on the team) how to get their fish for meals.

Requirements for the Fishing System in Genshin Impact

To have activated the Fishing system, you must have completed the quests related to Teapot. If you want to know about the teapot then we have a full article talking about the house system at Genshin Impact. In addition, you will need to complete the “Great Fish Outbreak” quest which will be released when the update becomes available. It's in this quest that you'll get your first lures and fishing rod to start fishing in the game.

According to a Genshin_Intel there is a specialized fishing pole for each region, which is most effective in that region. You can get these specialized rods from each region's Fishing Association.

To get started, you will need to make your baits. The quality of the bait and what types of fish they attract will depend on the materials you use, such as wheat (which you find exploring the world) and Sunset fruit (found on trees in the Mondstadt region). With that, just choose the baits that you will use on the fishing rod. You will make the baits at the Synthesis Desk found in cities.

If you see waves on the water, that means it's a Fishing Spot. Approach the Fishing Spots and interact with them to start fishing. The update period for each fishing spot is 3 days. During the update period, alternating day and night will affect fish appearance.

Different aquatic regions contain different species of fish. While preparing to fish, you can view the species found locally and select the appropriate rod and bait. You can trade the fish you caught for different types of Fishing Rods at the Fishing Association. Use fishing rods in the corresponding zones to increase your fishing chances.

How to start fishing?

Keep the “Throw Stick” button pressed to enter aiming mode;

Release the "Launch Stick" button to cast the hook with the bait.

If the hook is thrown too far away from the fish, your attention to the bait will drop dramatically. If the hook falls too close to the fish, they may get scared and run away. When the fish bites the hook, press “Raise Hook” or the fish may take the bait and run away.

After taking the bait, the fish will begin to resist. When fish enter resistance state, you can hold down the “Fish” button to adjust your fishing line tension and keep it in the yellow Ideal Tension Zone. The fishing progress circle will only increase if it is in the proper Tension Zone, otherwise it will decrease. When the fishing progress circle completes, one fish will be caught.

Fish on the hook will sometimes go into periods of intense resistance. At these times, the speed at which the line voltage will change will be affected, and the Ideal Voltage Zone will turn orange and begin to oscillate. If your fishing progress reaches 0, the fish will try to escape. The Voltage Zone will then turn red and begin to oscillate.

To make it easier to record fishing, a map has been added with a new fishing point marker. Travelers can book according to their needs. You can trade the fish you've caught at the Fishing Association of various regions. You can also use them as ingredients for cooking. You will also be able to check the specialties of the fish you have already caught in the Archive of the “Live beings” section.

In the Fishing Association of Inazuma, players will also be able to exchange their fish for refining materials and for the new spear “The Snapper”. This spear will be a 4-star free weapon and, from the description of its special abilities, should be a good free weapon choice for the upcoming Raiden Shogun, the electro archon. See the weapon:

ornamental fish

Certain live and more valuable specimens of each species are known as ornamental fish, and fishing grounds with these fish will have more obvious ripple effects. Travelers can exchange for the “Spirit Cloud Pool” Diagram at the Liyue Fishing Association. Ornamental fish obtained through fishing can be created in this pool.

Selecting different baits will attract different types of fish, and certain fish only appear in specific areas. According to Twitter user Ubatcha there will be 20 types of fish, and each fish can appear as ornamental or normal. Ornamental fish are more difficult to catch and are sent to your Relacha Teapot inventory instead of your “materials” inventory.

Beyond Fishing

We have four Genshin Impact characters to wait in 2.1:

Raiden shogun

Raiden shogun
Raiden shogun

Also known as Baal, Raiden Shogun is a five-star spear user and electrical abilities that many will remember from her fight with her during the latest Archons mission. She is the de facto leader of Inazuma and seeks eternity by gathering the visions and embedding them in a mysterious statue. She will be part of the first Genshin Impact 2.1 banner on September 1st, alongside Kujou Sara.

The second character to arrive in 2.1 is Kujou Sara, a four-star electro-archer and Tenryou Commission general. She appears a few times during the Archon of Inazuma's mission, including the battle between the resistance and the Shogunate, but all we really know about Sara is that she is loyal to Baal and is descended from the Tengu, a tribe of swift warriors with wings of crow.

Sangonomiya Kokomi is the Divine Priestess of Watatsumi Island and a 2.1-star Hydro catalyst user. Although she is more of a healer than a fighter, her strategic intelligence and leadership are what has kept the resistance alive for so long. It will be part of the second banner of XNUMX.

Aloy

Horizon Zero Dawn's redheaded slayer is coming to Genshin Impact 2.1, albeit only on PS4 and PS5 at first. If you want to have Aloy in Genshin Impact on the PC version, you'll have to wait until version 2.2, or potentially use Genshin Impact's new cross saving feature to claim it on the PlayStation first and use it on the PC. Although the chance of this working is unlikely. You will also have at least Adventure Level 20 to claim it.

Events in Inazuma and Liyue

There are also plenty of events in Genshin Impact, coming up in the next release. Moonlight Merriment revolves around the Liyue Food Festival and the traveler working alongside Xiangling and Keqing to cook dishes and discover the origins of the famous gastronomic event. There will also be two events that involve locating mysterious chests and buying moon charms for your rewards, including that coveted claymore fish, the Lord of the Luxurious Sea.

Hyakunin Ikki is a doubles fighting tournament in Inazuma where you create six teams of two characters and earn points by quickly matching each other to defeat enemies before time runs out. Imagine a running relay, only with a fight. Spectral secrets is another event that involves sending expeditions to record spectral sightings in Inazuma.

There is also the Lunar Realm fishing event, which gives you a fishing rod and allows you to track and catch the Lunar Leviathan. Finally, though not in-game, there will be an online concert to celebrate Genshin Impact's birthday, with covers of songs from the soundtrack.

Various Worlds to Explore

Genshin Impact is a free open-world gacha game (similar to the loot box), but with microtransactions within the game, published and distributed by miHoYo.

And for those starting out in Genshin Impact you still have here at Married Games a Complete Guide to start your journey really well and the Complete list of playable characters so far! Genshin impact is available for PC, Android, iOS, PS4 and, soon, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 5 with crossplay between platforms.
