How to fish in New World

You can go fishing very early on at New World, because what you need is actually very simple and easy to get. First, you'll need a fishing rod – we covered how to make or get a fishing rod in the section below.

Second, you might want to find some bait by buying it from more or less any merchant in the game. You can fish without bait, but fishing with the right type of bait for the type of water you're fishing in (fresh or salt water) will increase your chances of catching more valuable fish.

Once you've found a good fishing spot, here's how to fish:

-- Advertising --
  • Press F3 near a fishing hotspot to enter Fishing Mode.
  • Press R to equip the bait (optional).
  • Hold the left mouse button to prepare to cast your line; a bar will fill to indicate the distance of your throw.
  • Release the left mouse button when you are satisfied with the distance.
  • Wait until you get something (a warning will appear on the screen a second before).

Hold left mouse button to rewind your line back. An icon will appear with a green center that slowly stretches as you rewind. Release the left mouse button when the icon turns orange or your capture will escape. Start pulling again when the icon turns green again. Continue alternating between holding the left mouse button and releasing to pull the fish back to you.

The Line Voltage Stages

Sometimes it's really quick and easy to pull the fish back to you, because the fishing icon stretches out so slowly. But other times you need to be patient, because keep the left mouse button down for a few seconds until the icon turns orange, threatening to break your line.

But be patient and you will always be able to pull the line fully back. Also be aware that investing in the Focus attribute will improve your fishing skills, increasing fishing line tension and decreasing the weight of fish in your inventory.

Fishing is an efficient way to earn XP and is a fun and relaxed way to get lots of tasty meals and other useful items – especially if you can gather a group of friends for a fishing session.

How to get a fishing rod

By far the easiest way to get a Fishing Pole in New World is to build it yourself. You can create a simple wooden fishing pole out of 1 green wood and 1 hemp fiber on any fire. If you're born there, I recommend you make one at the Monarch Cliffs camp (the starting point for many new characters) because there's hemp in the nearby forest, which you need to harvest to get fiber. See map below for exact location.

You can also get a Fishing Rod by talking to Master Fisherman Michael Shields in Windsward, but it's much faster to just make one yourself.

There are higher levels of fishing rods, of course, but you will have to meet certain level requirements before using them.

  • The Treated Wood Fishing Rod requires you to be Level 4;
  • To use the Aged Wooden Fishing Rod, you must reach level 18;
  • Urdeira's Fishing Rod requires level 40;
  • And the Ironwood Fishing Pole requires level 60, which is the New World level cap;

where to get bait

You can find Firefly Bait by looking on Bulrush or Briar plants, which can be found around the lake at Broad Fishing Point and quickly reappear. You'll only get Bulrush baits approximately 10% of the time and Briar baits approximately 25% of the time, so keep looking.

How effective is bait in catching rare fish?

The game promises a greater chance of catching rarer fish when using certain baits, but they are not mandatory for you to fish. With Firefly Bait, for example, you have “a big increase in the chance of catching better fish in fresh water”. But exactly how much is the chance to improve your fishing using a bait and how many rarer fish do you catch with bait? Here's the answer:

-- Advertising --

On an average of about 370 times the line was cast, at several different depths in the Wide Fishing Point made by a player, approximately 160 of the items (including fish, treasure chests and other items) could be caught without using bait, about 6 were rare – 3,7%. 23 were also unusual, or 14,2%. The rest were common. The rest of the approximately 210 items obtained using the bait, 8 were rare - 3,8%. 27 were uncommon - 12,7%. The rest were common.

It doesn't seem like a “big boost” in your odds of purchasing rare items, right? Overall, the percentage of common fish was actually higher when using baits. But rarity is not the only thing that can judge how 'good' an item is, but also the XP gained for each fish. You get more XP for rarer items, but you also get more XP for bigger fish, so maybe you'll catch more big fish with bait?

Average XP gained without using bait was 124,1 and the average XP I earn using the bait was 124,9.

Both numbers represent the 10 XP you get for successfully fishing your line. With only a difference of 0,8 XP, we can't safely say that you get more good fish when you use the bait than when you don't. However, there is one important thing to be said about bait use: Is the use of bait more efficient?

Without counting against just the amount of fish, rarity, XP, fishing depth and more, the time it takes you to catch a fish when using the bait compared to not using it is reduced. If you want to quickly level up fishing in New World, use a bait.

-- Advertising --

The increase in efficiency you get depends on how deep you are fishing, but using the bait significantly improves the time it takes to take a bite and more efficiently to hook a fish. If we assume it takes about 20 seconds on average to pull your fish or item, and it takes another 5 seconds on average to finish the fishing animation and rewind your line, then using bait is somewhere between 15% - 43% more efficient.

When using the bait in deep water you have about 4,5 seconds until one bite. In very shallow water it takes about 15 seconds and in shallow water it is somewhere in between.

Without using bait, these times range from about 9 seconds on average for deep water, to about 25 seconds for a bite in very shallow depths.

So while bait doesn't seem to be great for catching rare fish right now, it's definitely the best fishing method for fast XP in New World and you get better results fishing in deep water too.

New World Fishing Spot Locations

Fishing Spots

You can fish more or less anywhere in New World, even in shallow water. But deep water is much better as it increases your chances of finding rarer and more valuable fish.

-- Advertising --

As you explore New World, you'll come across several fishing spots, which are shallow water areas that behave like deep water, giving you a better chance of catching rarer, higher-level fish. These fishing hotspots have limited uses per player, so you can't keep fishing there forever – although a server restart usually resets those uses.

You can see all the fishing spots in New World by checking the map, which was taken from this handy New World interactive online map. Note that each fishing hotspot has 1, 2, or 3 stars next to it, which indicates the quality of the hotspot (large, rare or secret) and the rarity of the fish you are likely to catch there.

fishing rods

If you want to make better quality fishing rods, you need to make them in a workshop. Making better quality rods increases the maximum line casting distance, the chance of finding rare fish, and the amount of line tension recovered per second.

The recipes for making each fishing rod are:

-- Advertising --
  • wooden fishing rod – green wood x1 and fibers x1
  • Treated Wood Fishing Rod – wood x12, thick leather x3 and linen x3
  • Aged wooden fishing rod – wood x13, thick leather x3 and linen x2
  • Wyrdwood fishing rod – Wyrdwood x14 boards, thick leather x3 and linen x2
  • Ironwood fishing rod – Ironwood x15, thick leather x3 and linen x2 planks

ADVANTAGES OF FISHING ROD

You can also add special features to determine a privilege type or save Azoth to increase the chance of giving the rod a relevant benefit. All these fishing rod advantages have three possible levels. The higher the level, the more effective the benefit. Here are all the advantages of New World fishing, including its effectiveness by level:

Explore the New World

N is set in the mid-1600s, where players colonize a fictional land called Aeternum, created in the mold of British America, along the Atlantic Ocean. Players can mine resources, craft items, and fight with and against other players.

For thousands of years, the mysterious island of Aeternum was the source of fantastic legends – and now you've found it. Shipwrecked, without supplies or allies, you'll need to make your way into a dangerous world where the fundamental laws of life and death don't apply. Magic flows through Aeternum. Brings life: miraculous healing, reanimation of the dead and strange flora with magical properties. And that brings horror: the power to cause unspeakable destruction and the slow wear and tear of the soul through countless cycles of death and resurrection.

In such a land, your destiny is whatever you make of it.

Now, leave it there in the comments: What do you think of New World? Did you find Platinum? Do you have enough Azoth in your inventory? You can enjoy and read more about MMOs is about N on our website.
