Travelers will be able to fish with the new game update. No more diving into the depths to catch fish bare-handed; now you can cast a line and perfect your angling form!

There will be more than three fishing rods to obtain, and the fish you catch with your rod will be added to your Serenitea Pot. A future 2.1 game event, called Lunar Realm, will also be dedicated to fishing.

New Events

  • Moonlight Merriment: various trials
  • Hyakunin Ikki: fighting tournament
  • Lunar Realm: fishing
