Two ArcheAge Guides To Fishing

It’s often the smaller touches that set ArcheAge apart. Fishing, a really dumb waste of time in many MMOs, is actually interesting and important in ArcheAge.

It’s a big enough deal that I’ve got not one, but two ArcheAge fishing guides for you.

The first, from Pohx Kappa, is a video guide. Pohx spends nearly 17 minutes detailing what there is to know about fishing. Pohx’s channel is one of the best ArcheAge gameplay channels, so give him a subscription.

If you’d rather read your info, Isarii has penned an also useful and comprehensive intro fishing guide, which can be found here.

Isarii sums up why ArcheAge players get enthusiastic about fishing very well.

“My hobby within my hobby, fishing in ArcheAge breaks new ground in my MMO playing history; for the first time in forever, I’m enjoying this fishing stuff. It caught me by surprise. I’m not a big fan of mini-games, and I’m not particularly fond of cooking professions, but as it turns out, that’s not what fishing in ArcheAge is about at all. No, in ArcheAge, fishing is a fully fledged profession where you brave the dangerous oceans, seeking out bigger and bigger fish to turn in for cold, hard cash – that’s a fishing profession even I can get behind,” Isarii writes.

One other thing about fishing in ArcheAge to remember is it’s a great way to get trolled or ganked. Pirates love to take your fish, but even in simple AFK fishing people will mess with your character by pushing you out into hostile waters and other mean tricks. One user’s solution was to play it safe by hiding in a bungalow, immortalized in this screenshot.
