Fishing is one of the key features of the Ragnarok X Next Generation (RoX) which allows you to obtain different materials for crafting different items in the game. One of the first tutorials or missions on the game taught you how to catch a fish in a basic way using a Wooden Fishing Rod and a Beginners Fishing Bait.

Getting a fish automatically allows you to grind formats when you’re away from your PC just like the auto-battle. In this guide, we will help you with the basic to the advanced feature of fishing and the list of location of different fish that you catch in the game. Ragnarok X Next Generation.

How to Catch a Fish

At the initial mission of the game, you probably know the basic of catching a fish. You need a Rod, Bait and a Fishing spot to get started. Since this is a life activity, you also need a Stamina for you to do this. One catch is equal to 10 stamina.

Manual Fishing

You can catch fish manually by going to the Fishing location (Check our list of catchable fish below for more details). From here, there should be a Fish Icon button that will appear on your screen. Tap on that button to get started. The screen will then enter fishing mode, you can then select your bait and rod. Press the Cast button to start fishing.

After that, you need to manually press the Reel button in timing, just right the shrinking circle touches the dotted-blue circle button or when it turns to green. Once successful, you’ll be able to catch the fish. If not, it will escape. To leave the fishing mode, just press the door icon at the top right corner near the map.

Automatic Fishing
