Hey, what is up, guys! It’s your Librarian Husky here, If you’re new around here and what I want to do for you today. Is break down my approach when it comes to fishing, especially as it relates to leveling up as quickly as possible if that’s your goal. Now my enjoyment usually is going to be what takes priority over just efficient hardcore grinding. I’ve been getting many questions about fishing in the New World, and I thought I’d just give you guys the information to help set you on your way to fishing fun and profitability. Feel free to take anything that this guide shares with you and toss out what you don’t like at the end of the day. Hopefully, this game answers all your questions.
Cancer is a New World that we just invented today, by the way. Suppose you like that word dancers hit that like button. But all jokes aside, it’s my hope that after this guide, you’re gonna have the tools that you need. Some resources that are gonna make your life easier and more when it comes to fishing in this game.
So first and foremost. Here I am to fish. You just need to go up to any kind of body of water, press f3 to be able to pull out your Rod and reel, and f4, in this case, to equip various bait. Now you’re going to find that certain bait is going to work better in certain types of water. You also want to pay attention to what the bait bonus says. In this case, it’s certain bait’s going to give you different levels of bonuses in this case like Oyster bait. Freshwater is going to give me a large boost in catching bigger fish. Why do you want to catch bigger fish? Bigger fish are going to give you more experience when it comes to fishing also. And note that if I’m like right here in one of my favorite fishing spots.
Earlier on, you’re going to unlock a two-star fishing spot right out here. In near every fall just south of the there. You can go fish here very easily. You won’t be disturbed by any enemies. But note that like if I just do a light cast. I’m going to land in Shallow Water. Do you need bait to fish? Absolutely not. Bai will only increase the odds of you catching a fish and the time it takes to actually reel and land a fish. Regarding the kind of like casting for the maximum range, you’ll notice that. That actually is an improvement and reduction in time because even if you do a short cast, you’ll find that the game will fight you a little bit on it. So doing short casts isn’t going to necessarily get you what you want.
Now one of the reasons you want to kind of focus here on hot spots. In this case, you can see here it’s a two-star hot spot. This is going to have the best respawn time, and the best respawn resource time when casting. Now you see where I’m going to miss. So I’m going to go ahead and try to recast again and get myself landing in the hot spot. Notice one thing real quick. It’s really pretty much instant. To where you go, and you can start reeling in your fish. Now also from money or monetary perspective. What I would highly recommend you do is go to the different town boards. Any town board that has fishing on it picks those up, not that you’re actually going to turn those in. but it’s going to tell you exactly what you need. Now also when you catch a rare fish. You’ll see the slight angle change. I’m going to show you guys how you can actually cancel out that to reduce your overall time. See if I can actually get a good cast in here.
Landing on the hot spot and the reason why you see me, actually go ahead and reset that cast. Is being that this area right that I’m in right now is shallow. Meaning it’s going to take longer. If you can find yourself in deep water, deep water is going to help you out dramatically. When it comes to reducing the amount of time it takes to hook the fish but also in the size of fish that you get, what you want to do whenever you get that little animation. You want to go ahead and then just go ahead and click out of. It and get that cast going from. An efficiency any speed perspective every time you can have your line in the water uh the the reduction and that’s going to save you countless amounts of time. Again you don’t actually need bait to fish. So if money is an issue, note that yeah, just go with fish, don’t equip any bait, and then keep going from there.
- You’re gonna suffer from a reduction in the size of the fish you get.
- You’re gonna also suffer a reduction in the amount of time it takes to actually hook a fish.
- You’re not getting additional XP because you’re using bait.
- You’re getting it because you’re actually catching larger fish, and you’re catching them in a much faster way.
Now there are two schools of thought here, and I want to point you to winds word because winds word is going to be where you actually pick up your fisherman’s quest. These are going to start showing up in your journal under skill progression. I highly encourage you to follow the full quest line with all priority because you’ll get a legendary fishing Rod at the end of the day. It’s going to be random out of a pull of multiple different rods that you get, but you’re going to want to get this fishing Rod because you’re doing the work anyway.
By just fishing and leveling by fishing, you’re automatically doing the things that the quest literally wants you to do. And what it’s going to end up blessing you with is going to be various different fishing gear that you can kind of see listed here I’ve got harvester there you go fish fisherman’s etc., so you’ll end up with 500 gear score a whole fisherman’s set by also doing the questline.
Fisherman Michael Shields
So just keep in mind that you’re doing the work anyway. You might as well get credit for it because if you don’t and you end up deciding to go backward and do the fisherman quest down later. In your gameplay history, you’re going to find yourself actually going and fishing the same spots that you already discovered, doing the same thing with the fish that you’ve already done.
Remember that kicks out here in westward, and you’re gonna be looking for fisherman Michael Shields. Now he’s gonna give you the initial quest, and that’s going to basically just take you all over eternity. Now you’ll actually benefit by being at a higher level when doing your fishermen’s quest because it will take you over the entire world.
If you’re doing this alongside your leveling, you’re going to get to a part where you actually finish level 60. you’ve explored the zones.
You’ve got a lot of these teleport spots open up, and you might be.
Maybe around level 50 or 60 as a fisherman, and thus you only really have 140 levels to really kind of hardcore grind.
You’re gonna have the resources to make it easier for you to do so because you’ve already unlocked teleport spots, and you’ve already unlocked a certain level of gear. So now, let’s talk about speed, and let’s go ahead and use this hot spot as an example. Hot spots are shared. So if people are all coming to this location, they could farm this hot spot up. You might miss out on necessary XP. This is also shallow water. This is where using your inn and have at least one house. It is going to save you all kinds of time. You can teleport back to your end every 30 minutes for free. No problems, no questions asked, but having a house will actually allow you to teleport to your house.
Then teleport to any other location that you see fit. If you want to hot spot, hop note, and you gotta factor in the amount of time it takes you to teleport from one place to another. Ultimately, I would recommend you try to find either fresh or saltwater that’s got deep water in it. And also has either a two, most likely a two-star rarity spot because that’s going to have the quickest respawn time for you to keep farming up. Then you’re also fishing in deep water, which increases the likelihood of you getting certain drops and more experience possible. Now, this is where the resource New World map fits in, and I’ll include a link in the description.
You can actually track all the various hot spots and put your cities and your little teleports. So if you’re looking for something specific, note that as you just level up. Your fishermen can actually see various hot spots that unlock as you level them up. Now you’re going to have to pair this with the map because not all hot spots will open up for you. In fact, some of my favorite hot spots didn’t open up until later. In the game, and to highlight that again, like I really enjoy this one, it’s a good starter hot spot you want to make sure you’re hitting that uh as quickly as possible as soon as you can you want to jump out here to wreak water and you want to run to this rare fishing spot right here and let me show you what it does for you.
So here I am in my favorite fishing spot currently in the game. I’m going to go ahead and equip some. We’ll just equip some little worm bait. Start casting. Now I haven’t actually equipped my different gear, but you can see here even if I miss the spot. I can go. I’m already in deep water, meaning it’s over. Automatically going to have less time than I have to spend and wait for a fish to bite.
So even on miss I, it’s worth my time to go ahead and keep my reel or rotter line, whatever you want to call it, in the water itself. Now what I can also do here is. I can actually try and back up. So I can work on trying to get those max casts to increase the amount of time or reduce the amount of time it takes. While also trying to hit the hot spot in question. You’re going to have to take a little bit of time to line it up overall. Let me go ahead and just actually choose a miss on that one to see how far I can.
Get depending on your Rod, the time of day, and the various perks. You might end up having a little bit of a difference in it. Before I had my legendary fishing Rod, my max cast was actually Pri, like I was probably 10 feet in front of that tree that you’re looking at right now before I could get the cast in place. Now you can see here obviously if you’re brand new to fishing overall. You don’t want to let your tension get too high and let the line snap, but you can kind of give it a little bit of a give and go. Depending on the type of fish, you’ll you know sometimes you can kind of start to depict the the type of fit like I was talking and I broke my line all right still too short for a deep cast let’s back up one more time try to continue to shoot for that maximum length cast. This will make it easier to reel in. you can see here that obviously snapping a line is wasted effort. That’s a loss of XP per hour.
Now, what I would recommend is just as essentially a sanity check.
- I wouldn’t like mainline fishing as you’re like be all end all sprint to the end sprint to 200 gold. Rather kind of set across a list of basically like if you could hit like what one level a day two levels a day. Based on the number of levels a day that you think you can end up hitting when it comes to actually fishing.
- You can actually see how easy it’s going to be to knock out fishing within a month or two months. Again you only have 200 levels, and if you’ve been already kind of doing it and dabbling in it at the start, you don’t really have that many.
- I started uh my journey to 200 when I was level 30.
- So that’s where I was like, I’m going to hit 200, and I’m going to do it. I’m going to see how quickly I can do it, and I ended up averaging about like five levels a day while playing. So it didn’t take me too long overall to get there. I don’t know why I’m doing a medium cast.
Here I am talking, thinking, and trying to actually make this guide valuable to you.
So note that those are some tips and tricks, and hopefully, this will help you continue to grind out fishing. Again I would point you back to the town boards. Town boards are very valuable because they can actually tell you what fish or items you might catch, and you might not realize they actually have a lot of value. So be sure to list those on the market, and you’ll find yourself swimming, pun intended, in plenty of coins to be able to make your debut. Now overall, you can always like decide to break these down for parts you can if you never know, you can right-click you can say salvage, and you’re going to get various different items that will tell you fish cuts and other kinds of things that you might be able to extract from fishing while using this.
So again, you don’t need bait, but I would recommend it because it’s going to save you all kinds of time speed you up to do the fisherman’s quest because it’s going to end up rewarding you with plenty of gear that’s going to make the fishing all the better and at the end of the day keep tossing your rod end we’re not the whole Rod but keep tossing it in at least a different spot.
