It is possible to go fishing on the 22nd floor by speaking to Nishida in the Town of Beginnings. From time to time there are also events dedicated to fishing, during which another maps can become available for limited time.

Fishing is a mechanic completely independent from the character's parameters and equipment related to battling. New parameters are being introduced, which affect fishing only: Power, Technic, Control, FExp (Fishing Experience) stat gained with every single catch and Fishing Rods as a single piece of equipment affecting the efficiency of fishing.

When fishing, player can fight with the fish either unless he catches it, decides to let it go or runs out of his three "hooks". Fish have an Escape Rate, which shows the probability to take one of the "hooks". Escape Rate increases whenever the player misses, fails to pull at all or deals a "Good" hit.

If the player runs out of all three "hooks", the fish runs away.

Character's fishing stats[]

There are three parameters unique to fishing, which can be increased only by leveling up and equipping rods:

- Power - affects damage dealt to fish

- Technic - affects damage dealt when dealing a "Perfect" hit

- Control - affects damage dealt to fish, chance for fish to escape and the speed of the fishing slider

When the character gains a level, base damage increases by 1 or 2 per level. Reaching level 5, 10, 15 and 20 let's the player use more effective rods. As of December 2020 the maximum Fishing level is 60.

FExp gained depends on the fishing area, rarity of the fish and its HP.

Fishing areas[]

Fishing-related items[]

Basic Fishing Rod can be bought at a Merchant for Col, while better Fishing Rods can be crafted using some rare fishes. Basic baits are also available at a Merchant, and there are also baits which grant increased chance to receive a rare drop - such baits can be traded for fish and received from some events.

To be able to fish, player needs to acquire one of available Fishing Rods and a bait. Fishing rewards player with a FExp and one of different possible catches: one of many types of fishes, Lost Epic items, Memoria Niter S/M/L, Release Crystal S/M/L, Arcana Gem Trade Tickets and Core Metal.

When fishing, rarity of the catch is indicated by the number of exclamation marks appearing when the fish gets the bait - one usually means a small fish, two usually mean a medium fish and three can mean either a medium fish, a rare fish or one of the other precious items (like Memoria Niter, Core Metal etc.)

Fish can be traded at a Trader for various rewards, including weapon crafting and enhancement materials, Golden Bells, materials for crafting fishing rods, Release Crystals S/M/L, better baits, Moon Stones, Star Stones, Martial Arts Text, Medals of Combat Arms and Arcana Gems.


There are three types of baits with three levels of rarity each:

- Aqua Worm - higher chance to get a small fish

- Corogia Cricket - more or less equal chances to get small or medium fish

- Force Mackerel - higher chance to get a medium fish

Merchant offers all three types of baits with the lowest "Usual" rarity. At the Trader fish can be traded for baits with the "High" rarity and during some events the player can receive baits with the "High Rare" rarity. Higher rarity grants a higher chance to get a rare fish or an item.
