Fishing

From NovaRO: Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Fishing refers to a Monster Hunter: The Savage Coast mechanic or behavior. It is only applicable to High Rank Hunts.


Fishing is one of the three gathering activities that can be done on the Savage Coast.

Unlike its two Gathering counterparts, you can also fish outside of the island, next to any bed of water.

For Master Fishermen (Fishing Enchant level 3), the types of fish you encounter will change depending on the map type you fish in:

  • Fishing in The Savage Coast will result in a higher chance of finding Large Fish.
  • Fishing in Towns will result in a higher chance of finding Small Fish.
  • Fishing in Fields or Dungeons will result in an even split between Large and Small Fish.

Note: Aqualings will only spawn on the Savage Coast, you can not spawn them in fields, towns, or dungeons.


Fishing Tasks

Tasks for Level 2 Fishing

Tasks for Level 3 Fishing

  • Fish 50 more times to get the next task.
  • Oscar tells you to defeat 2 Aqualings. (This step may take some time to complete, as they spawn at a low rate while fishing)

    • To defeat an Aqualing you must press "Interact" near it 4 times. Note that Aqualings will run away from you.
  • Talk to Oscar after completing the task. He gives you x5 of a 500 point fish of your choosing.

How to Fish

  • Talk to Oscar, the Fishing Instructor to get the fishing skill.
  • Use Choose Bait in your Misc tab of skills.

Making Tonics

Mack Arell, Tonic Brewer

To make tonics you trade in the fish you catch to Mack Arell. You can find him at the Fishing Camp.

Each fish trades in for points towards a specific stat. The NPC will store your points for you.

You can trade 3000 points of one stat to make 3~10 tonics of that same stat.

Every Tonic has a 10 minute duration, and can only be used during High Rank Hunting missions.

Notes

  • It is possible to get Level 3 from Fishing level 2 baits, but the fishing process will take longer time.
  • There is also chance that you get another "type" of fishes e.g. Level 2 Juicy Bait (STR and INT fishes) and getting Fatty Tuna (VIT fish).
