A glorious day for some fishing.[2]

After casting out your line you feel a strong bite. You are about to pull in something big![2]

Fishing is a profession in the gathering artisan class.[3][4][5]

Treasures may be obtained through fishing and by exploring naval content.[10][11]

Types of fishing

Alpha-1 Fishing.[12]

So fishing we have some fun designs that we want to play with and will likely include the community during alphas to play with those designs and and it's possible that we may you know even take into consideration a popularity among the community of which designs they like best. Fishing's very a fun pastime that's become relevant in MMOs over the past several years and I think that we have some interesting ideas to implement with that, that players will get to try out in alpha.[13]Steven Sharif

There are multiple types of fishing in Ashes of Creation.[8][9]

Small-game fishing
This is location-based fishing that is present in the current Alpha-1 game. In the final game there will not be "sparklies" on location-based gatherable resources.[8][9]
Deep-sea fishing
This is a more sports-oriented style of fishing, which will feature a mini-game. This will require equipment, such as fishing boats and expensive lures, but will yield higher rewards.[14][8][9][15][16][17]
Coastal/lake fishing
This allows players to fish in any water, but will yield lesser rewards.[8][15][16]

Benefits of fishing

Fishing poles

Part of creating these systems, especially systems like fishing that have a specific progressive route requiring higher-level equipment- Harvesting tools so to speak- before you're capable of actually harvesting specific types of fish that yield greater materials for players. I mean that's all part of the progression of that system accompanying that obviously is going to be the detail behind you know those tools reflecting the more ornate and higher profession quality that players have.[20]Steven Sharif

Fishing poles are an artisan tool in Ashes of Creation.[22]

Players can obtain fishing pole cosmetics through achievement or purchase.[22]

Fishing boats

Fishing boats in Ashes of Creation are utilized in deep sea fishing.[14][8][9][15][16][17][24]


Fish in Alpha-1.[26]

Here you're seeing different types of fish. Obviously these all exist probably within the same tier of the fishing profession; and then as you know- as the profession levels up you're going to have access to larger fish; to even perhaps more dangerous fish- we'll see. These are things that players get access to as they level up that progression.[26]Steven Sharif

Fish are gatherable resources obtained with the Fishing profession.[5]

  • There are different tiers of fish available to artisans as they level up their fishing profession.[26]
  • Fish exist in community resource nodes until depleted, then they will respawn elsewhere.[27]

List of fish resources


Alpha-1 Fishery on a freehold plot.[28]

You actually see there a small pond, which is actually another type of farmable area that we're going to have available on the freehold system, which is essentially a fishery so to speak. So you know fish play an important role from a raw gatherables a standpoint, but also again because a lot of the components of the freehold system are intended to be processing of raw materials, you know the fishery allows for a focus on specific type of fish gatherables that may only be gathered through the fishery blueprint.[29]Steven Sharif

A fishery is a farmable area that can be placed on a freehold plot. A fishery allows gathering of fish that are unique to the fishery blueprint.[29]
