Amazon’s MMORPG New World has plenty of missions and quests for players to venture. But to gain access or complete some of these missions, players need to have specific items in their inventory.
For example, Fish Oil is essential to complete most quests during the early stages of the game. But New World doesn’t give any instructions to users on how to get or farm Fish Oil in Aeternum.
To get Fish Oil in New World, players need to have some fish in their inventory. Then, they need to click and highlight fish on the menu to open up more options. Click on ‘Salvage’ to break down the fish into different parts, including some Fish Oil.
Note: The game doesn’t always guarantee a Fish Oil drop whenever players salvage a fish. Although, it’s more common than other rarer items, so it shouldn’t take long to find one.
However, new players may have other questions regarding this item in-game. For instance, questions like ‘where can they find fishes?’ may arise. In this guide, we’ve covered everything gamers need to know regarding how to farm Fish Oil and where to use it, so keep reading to find out.
How to Get More Fish in New World?
Players need to go fishing in-game to get more fish in New World. A player should own a fishing rod and be near a large body of water to go fishing in Aeternum.
Once you’re in the perfect spot to do some fishing, equip the fishing rod and press F3 to throw the hook in the water. After waiting for a few seconds, a prompt will appear to reel the fish through a simple mini-game. After that, you’ve successfully caught a fish in New World!
How to Craft a Fishing Rod in New World
The character needs to set up a camp to craft a Fishing Rod in New World. After that, press ‘E’ to get into the crafting menu and search for fishing poles under the Survival Tools option. Also, make sure to have the required materials, which you can find by hovering over them on the menu.
Players can craft different Fishing Rods in New World depending on their Engineering Level. But the only difference between the fishing rods is the throwing distance. Those with enough gold can also buy rods from the trading posts.
How to Find Fishing Hotspots in New World
To find fishing hotspots in New World, players need to level up their fishing skills. It gives them the ability to mark hotspots on the map once they’ve discovered them by traveling various areas in New World.
Fishing hotspots are perfect for those looking to get rarer fish and items like Fish Oil in New World. These spots are ranked into five different tiers. You can see these tiers on the map after upgrading the Fishing Skill to a certain level.
Of course, those that don’t have fishing skills can also find hotspots. Players can also use yellow Hexagon areas on the bodies of water found on the map. But they are easier to find with icons instead of guessing or remembering a spot every time.
For instance, a good fishing spot for beginners is Cascade Harbor near Windsward. But you’re free to choose whichever area suits your needs the best.
The Uses of Fish Oil in New World
Players can combine Fish Oil with nuts in a kitchen to make cooking oil in New World. It’s a crucial ingredient to grind and level up cooking skills to gain access to higher tier-dishes.
Gamers can obtain Fish Oil from the beginning of the game, and cooks and grinders of any level use it. Players can’t ignore the importance of fish oil, as it’s the source of the best food items in New World.
These consumables will come in handy during long expeditions, as you’re bound to take damage fighting enemies blocking the path.
I recommend players to gather a bunch of fish oil in one go, so players don’t have to go fishing every time they need the ingredient to cook something delicious. Even better, those left with an overabundance of fish oil can sell them to other players through Trading Posts.
