It happened – in Genshin impactfinally fishing appeared! I understand that it was possible to fish before that, but now we are talking about the real process of fishing. This is a completely different mechanic, different from what you used to do before: jump into a pond and spam with the F key. We are opening a series of guides dedicated to fishing in Genshin Impact. In them we will tell you:
- Basic fishing mechanics and principles
- Fishing rod selection
- Choice of bait
- Fishing spots in Mondsstadt, Li Yue and Inazuma
- Pole arms “Catch”
How to complete the quest Population Exploding
To start fishing in Genshin Impact, you first need to unlock your hut. After that, you need to complete the quest “Explosive population growth”.
Basics of fishing in Genshin Impact
Speak with Katherine at the Mondsstadt Adventurer’s Guild to begin the Pop Explosion quest. She will offer to chat with a man named Nantak, who is located not far from Mondstadt. Nantak and will tell you about the fishing system in Genshin Impact.
The idea is to find fishing spots on the world map. The first such place will be indicated by Nantak himself, and it is located north of Springvale. Then he will give you enough simple fishing rod and several types bait (for example, fruit mash).
Stand in front of the fishing spot and press F, then LMB to throw the bait into the water. Try to aim where the fish are, but do not hit them directly, otherwise you will scare away. If you do everything correctly, then after a few seconds the fish will catch on the hook.
There are many different fish and lures in Genshin Impact, so you have to find a different approach for each. For example, a fruit mash is ideal for catching Medaki. Other species, especially the rarest ones, will simply ignore this bait. You can right-click at any time to change the bait or bait on your fishing rod.
After the fish hooks onto the hook, click LMB to start a mini-game. A special bar will appear at the top of the screen. Holding LMB, you will make an effort to fish out, and if you let go, you will give the line slack. Also pay attention to the rectangular frame, symbolizing the “golden mean”. You need to stay inside this box until the fishhook progress timer expires. If done correctly, the fish will be caught. Otherwise, it will fall off the hook.
In most fishing places 5-8 fish swim. Once you catch them all, they will respawn at the fishing spot after 3 days. In addition, some fish appear only at night – from 18:00 to 06:00. Anyway, once you’re done fishing in Springvale, Nantuck will reward you with a fruit mash recipe so you can make more bait. He will also ask you to go to the Petrel Mountains to catch some ornamental fish. Unlike other types of fish, they can be stored in a sapphire pool.
