This page will cover everything you need to know about Fishing in V Rising, including how to get the Fishing Rod Recipe, Where to find Fishing Spots and how to obtain the Twilight Snapper.
What Do I Need To Start Fishing in V Rising
There are several Fishing Spots scattered all around Vardoran, but before you can settle down and fish away you’ll need to follow a couple steps which include Rufus the Foreman, creating a Woodworking Bench, then finally crafting a Fishing Pole.
How To Find Rufus the Foreman
Once you’ve created your Castle and upgraded your equipment a little until your Gear Level is at least around 15, open up your Build Menu by pressing and look for the Blood Altar which can be found to the far right of the Fundamentals Tab. Here you’ll need 180 Stone and 10 Blood Essence.
After you’ve acquired the necessary materials, place the Blood Altar in your Castle and interact with it, then scroll down and track Rufus the Foreman. Follow the blood trail which will lead you to a Bandit Logging Camp in Farbane Woods where Rufus is located. Here you’ll find multiple groups of Bandits, so make sure you clear them out before taking on Rufus to prevent them from sneaking up behind you mid-battle. Upon defeating him you’ll get your hands on the following items:
|Blood Rage||Shield self and nearby allies for %110 of your spell power and increase attack speed by %25 for 4.5 seconds.|
|Woodworking Bench||A Workstation used for shaping wood.|
|Fishing Pole||Use it to catch fish! Keep and eye out for bubbling water in lakes and streams.|
|Hunter’s Crossbow||A Ranged weapon that fires bolts.|
|Painting Frame||Reagent used for crafting.|
|Sculptured Wood||Reagent used for crafting.|
How To Create A Woodworking Bench in V Rising
Upon defeating Rufus, return to your castle and craft the Woodworking Bench by opening up your Build Menu by pressing , then click on Production and you’ll find it under Crafting. In order to build it you’ll need 12 Planks and 60 Animal Hide. You’ll need to place 20 Lumber in a Sawmill for one Plank, so you’ll want to put at least a couple hundred Lumber in it and wait for it to do its thing. However, the time and cost can be decreased if you place it in a Workshop Room . Animal Hide can be gathered by killing animals out in the wild, such as Wolfs, Bears and Deers.
How To Create A Fishing Pole in V Rising
It’s now time to create yourself a Fishing Pole! To do this, you’ll need 6 Planks, 3 Copper Ingots and 3 Coarse Thread. To get to Copper Ingots you’ll need to build a Furnace which costs 480 Stone and 60 Copper Ore. Copper Ore Nodes can be found scattered around the world, but you’ll find large clusters of them primarily in The Bandit Copper Mine in Farbane Woods. However, you’ll need a weapon which is at least Gear Level 6 If you would like in-depth info on where to find Copper Ore, then take a look at our Where to Get Copper Ore page.
After the Furnace has been built you’ll need to place at least 20 Copper Ore to create 1 Copper Ingot, however like the Workshop you can reduce the time and cost by placing it in a Forge Room . Finally, you’ll need to get your hands on 3 Coarse Threads which can be done by destroying barrels and crates in Bandit Camps, Bandit Logging Camps, and Bandit Trapper Camps. Once you’ve acquired all the materials, return to your Workshop and craft the Fishing Pole.
Where To Find Fishing Spots in V Rising
Fishing in V Rising works a little differently compared to other games as you can’t just start fishing in any water, as you can only fish in lakes or rivers which have bubbly spots. However, this can be uncommon so keep your Fishing Pole on you at all times, then when you come across you can take the opportunity to fish!
How to Catch Fish in V Rising
Upon finding a bubbly spot, place the Fishing Pole on your hotbar and equip it, then hover your mouse over the bubbles and press to begin fishing. Here you’ll need to wait until the bubbles start glowing before pressing the again to retrieve the fish. You may be want to zoom in by scrolling up to get a clearly view of the bubbles, so you don’t accidently miss the glow.
Best Fishing Spots in V Rising
There are a variety of Fish that can be caught in V Rising but the main one you’ll want to keep a lookout for is the Twilight Snapper, as it is required to summon the Putrid Rat which will give you access to Rat Form. For more in-depth information on how to find and defeat the Putrid Rate, then take a look at our How to Find and Kill the Putrid Rat page.
Unfortunately, the Twilight Snapper can take a while to drop so you’ll be collecting a variety of other fish which aren’t completely useless, such as the Fierce Stingers, as you can place them in The Devourer for Fish Oil, Fish Bones and Scales. Fish Oils is an ingredient required to make Pristine Leather which is needed to craft the Dawnthorn Armor Set. Aditionally, certain fish are required to make potions, such the Witch Brew will need Swamp Dwellers.
