FFXV-Fishing

Noctis catches a fish.

I was hoping to see something epic. A mortal battle between man and fish.
—Prompto

Fishing is a minigame in Final Fantasy XV where the player can gather food ingredients for cooking at camp sites and prize fish that cannot be eaten. The player can catch fish of all sizes in bodies of water, using various different rods and lures. Upon catching new fish, the party can unlock new recipes. Fishing is an optional pastime, but some quests require one to fish.

MechanicsEdit

Myrlwood-Falls-Fishing-FFXV

A yellow marker denotes a fish in that spot.

How to fishEdit

The fishing game minigame uses button prompts the player must input while reeling in a fish. The fish that appear yellow on the radar are the ones that can be cooked at camp. Quitting fishing and restarting has the fish respawn, so the player can keep trying for the specific fish they want. Sometimes the fish makes splashes on the surface of the water to tip the player to an especially good spot to cast their line.

Fishing requires the player be in possession of at least one usable fishing line and lure. Both lines and lures can be purchased at shops, including tackle shops located near select fishing holes. As Noctis's fishing skill increases, both the speed at which lines deteriorate and the cost of lures decrease. Noctis can acquire new fishing rods and reels, boosting what are classified as his fishing offense and defense.

To start fishing, the player must find a fishing spot in a body of water. They become marked on the map after discovered, and the player can also learn about them beforehand from tipsters and from fishing magazines found lying around in the world. Some fishing spots have signs that say what kind of fish can be caught there, although these tend to not be fully comprehensive. Fishing at different times of day may yield different fish. The player can't fish with Aranea in the party, or in Chapter 14.

When the player begins to fish, Noctis summons a rod to his hand. Entering the menu at this point lets the player choose their fishing equipment.

The player uses the action button to cast the line and the right shoulder button to reel the line. To get the fish to bite one must use a lure, and specific lures work for specific fish; if the player uses an incompatible lure, the fish will simply ignore it. When the lure is near a fish a red bar appears to the top of the screen and a sound cue will play, same as for initiating a battle on the field. The fish pulling on the line wears it down and if it snaps and the fish gets away, the player will lose their lure. The line wear is depicted as a numerical value, and the player should replace their line from the equipment menu when it wears thin.

Fish-jump-FFXV

Fish jumping.

The player must follow the button prompts that appear on-screen to reel in the fish. The player should not reel when there is no tension on the line that makes the gauge go red, and when there is tension to push the analog stick to the direction the screen prompts to relieve it. At times fish jump out of the water with a button prompt to follow, which lets Noctis reel his catch a little closer.

There is a record of what kinds of fish have been caught. It is possible to catch fish up to one meter in length.

TipsEdit

FishingSpot-ffxv-mapicon

A good strategy is to not look at the strength of the line or the progress gauge at the top, as once a fish has been hooked the player is committed to catching it. Instead, the player can watch the fish to anticipate its movement, and move the rod the same way the fish is moving. If a fish is far away, the player can use its wake to determine movement. The camera always moves in the same direction as the fish and can thus also be easier to observe.

It can be a good idea to not reel when the fish is changing direction rapidly, and only reel when it is moving consistently in one direction. When the water splashes and the controller is vibrating, the fish is struggling. Reeling is much more effective when the fish doesn't struggle, and for the big fish it is advised to not reel when they struggle as it creates tension on the line. Tapping the reel button once, rather than holding, when the fish struggles, doesn't deplete from the line strength, but can slightly advance the progress bar at the top. For catching the big fish, repeatedly tapping the reel button rather than holding tends to work better to avoid wearing down the line.

Skill levelEdit

The player can level up Noctis's fishing skill via fishing; the fishing experience is added when resting at camp or at lodgings, the same as for EXP. The bonus at each level up will improve the player's chances of catching bigger fish, which in turn improves the chances of getting big AP bonuses from fishing once unlocked in the Ascension.

Level 1: No Bonus
Level 2: Fishing line wears down 25% slower when fish struggle
Level 3: Tackle shops offer a 10% discount
Level 4: Chances of hooking a fish increased by 25%
Level 5: Catch fish up 31.5 inches
Level 6: Tackle shops offer a 30% discount
Level 7: Fishing line wears down 50% slower when fish struggle
Level 8: Chances of hooking a fish increased by 50%
Level 9: Tackle shops offer a 50% discount
Level 10: Catch fish up to 59 inches

Victory scenesEdit

Noct Fishing FFXV

Noctis catches a small fish.

Upon making the landing, there are four different victory scenes depending on the fish caught:

  • For a small catch, Noctis reels in the fish and hoists it up. The team expresses disappointment for such a small or unappealing catch.
  • For a general catch, Noctis reels in the fish and hoists it up. The team compliments Noctis's catch.
  • For a large catch, Noctis reels in the fish, but kneels over, puts his rod aside and uses both hands to hoist up the catch. The team comes over, and celebrates Noctis's catch.
  • For exceptionally huge catches, Noctis looks over in excitement, and summons Gladiolus to handle the catch, who dives on into the waters to subdue the fish.
    • For the Murk Grouper, the same will happen with the addition of the rest of the team huddles over, Ignis looks over the dock, before Prompto playfully pushes him in to follow through and Noctis playfully kicks Prompto into the water. As the team stands in the shallows, they all hoist up the fish. Prompto pulls out his camera, and the group poses with the catch in celebration for a photo. This will go down in the player's photo gallery for the day.

Fishing questsEdit

Navyth-FFXV

Navyth.

Navyth is a fisherman who travels around the Leide, Duscae and Cleigne region, who gives quests for Noctis to catch particular fish. The fish he requests for can be caught from the fishing spot at which the quest is given, but the player can also catch the fish elsewhere if they wish. If the player has already caught the requested fish, it can be presented to Navyth to complete the quest immediately after accepting it.

Fishing BuddiesEdit

The first fishing quest requires Noctis to catch a Crag Barramundi. Fishing buddies quest is located next to the marshy waters north from the Wiz Chocobo Post, south from the Coernix Station, in Duscae.

The Crag Barramundi will appear as a yellow dot on the fish radar. The following lures are especially suitable: Sweet Jamming: Custard, Tidal Might Leviathan, Bomber: Ice Bomb, Ranker Tonberry.

For completing the quest the player will get 1,500 EXP, a Knife T. Tonberry lure, and the Grilled Wild Barramundi recipe (+80 attack and magic, +500 health).

Fishing NaturallyEdit

The Fishing Naturally quest requests Noctis to catch a Cherrycomb Trout. Navyth, the quest-giver, is located west from Lestallum; following the road to the west, the player will cross the river. Navyth will be fishing near in the vicinity of the Mynbrum Haven campground.

Cherrycomb Trout will appear as a yellow dot on the radar. Suitable lures include: Whiskers: Crystal, and Knife T. Tonberry.

For completing the quest the player will get 2,000 EXP and the Butterfly Edge (150 defense) rod.

Navyth's ChallengeEdit

The next quests requires for Noctis to catch the rare a rare fish Vesper Gar. Navyth is found at the Vesperpool, in the northwestern part of the map. Vesper Gar has a long, thin body, and is marked with a blue mark on the mini map. After casting the line the player should pay attention to the fish below the surface and look for the Vesper Gar. Suitable lures include: Stinker: Malboro, Stinker: Malbodoom, and Ranker Tonberry.

For completing the quest the player will get 3,000 EXP and the Invincible Iron Giant lure that sinks when reeled in and floats when tension is released.

Angler's NightmareEdit

Anglers-Nightmare-FFXV

The quest completed.

Navyth's last quest at Galdin Quay has Noctis catch the "Devil of the Cygillan" (Murk Grouper). Navyth is found on the beach. It is best to be at least level 7 in fishing. The fish won't be visible on the minimap, but it can be found on the spot nearest to Navyth during daytime by casting the line to the middle of the fishing area, or a little to the right. If the player spots a giant fishing lurking under the surface, they have found it.

Suitable lures are the ones that sink, but an especially good fit is the Burrower: Abyss Worm. It will be a tough battle to reel in the fish, as it will struggle a lot (water is splashing and the controller vibrates). The player must not reel when the fish struggles, but there might only be short windows for reeling as the fish fights back most of the time. Tapping the reel button tends to work better than holding against fish that struggle a lot. Because the fish is so big, it wears down the line fast, and thus the player needs good technique and equipment to catch the fish.

Completing the quest yields 5000 EXP along with the Tranquility rod (290 defense).

Liege of the LakeEdit

If the player camps at the haven near Vesperpool with a full party, Gladiolus will ask for him and Noctis to go fishing for the legendary Liege of the Lake in the Vesperpool the next morning. Complying triggers a quest for the fish. The tour is completed once the player catches the Liege; quitting fishing puts them back at camp, but the tour can be restarted at any time by camping at the same haven again. It is possible to catch the Liege outside of the tour when fishing at the same spot.

Vesperpool-Tour-Complete-FFXV

The tour at the lake completed.

The "Liege of the Lake" is one of the toughest fish to catch. It is a hidden fish (not marked on the radar while fishing) lurking in the top left corner of the fishing area. It can be caught with the 10,000 Needles Gold Cactuar lure that can be bought at the shop at the same fishing spot. It will appear regardless of weather. It will struggle almost all the time when caught. It is best to use the best fishing line, an upgraded rod and reel, and to have Fishing Level 7 or above. The player should continually tilt the analog stick the way the fish swims, and looking at the fish itself rather than the button prompt can be a better method, although this is not so easily seen if it is raining. The player must be patient and only reel in when the fish is not struggling (the controller doesn't vibrate). Tapping the reel in button can work better than holding it, to save line. Because the fish struggles so much, there are only short windows for reeling.

Catching the fish yields the Big Blaze Bahamut lure, which is special as it will return even if the line snaps.
