Destroying the agents of hell is the ultimate goal. But even the most hardened warriors need some rest and relaxation every now and then.
Blizzard managed to take the same dungeon-crawling experience that many fans know and love from the Diablo series to the mobile platform. While Diablo Immortal has been met with controversy since its release, it has since been very successful, even managing to win the Best Mobile RPG award from the Pocket Gamer Awards.
While the game definitely isn’t lacking in terms of content, one thing that many players have asked for is the addition of some kind of pastime to take the edge off of hours upon hours of in-game grind. Fortunately, the devs have listened, and have added a new pastime in the February 20 feature update – Fishing.
Fishing in Diablo Immortal
Fishing is a new pastime in Diablo Immortal where players can go to designated fishing areas around the game and catch different types of fish that they can exchange for rewards.
Fishing is unlocked as soon as you reach Level 43 in-game. If you are at or over Level 43, travel to Bilefen and take on ‘The Greatest Pastime’ quest. The quest will walk you through the basics of fishing in Diablo Immortal.
By completing The Greatest Pastime quest, you will be rewarded with your own personal fishing rod. But you can’t start fishing just yet – you need to visit the local Fisher in any of the three Fishing zones in the game to purchase bait.
Common Bait costs 200 Gold at the local Fisher and you can carry up to 99 bait at any given time. With your rod and bait secured, you can now start casting your rod by pressing the Rod button next to your other abilities.
With your fishing line cast, a timer on the top of the screen will appear and display white, blue, and gold-colored fish icons. You can leave your line in the water for as long as you like, just remember that leaving the line in the water for longer will increase your chances of getting rare fish.
Fishing Locations in Diablo Immortal
There are three fishing locations in Diablo Immortal – Ashwold Cemetery, Bilefen, and the Frozen Tundra. All three fishing locations are Safe Zones, which means monsters and other types of enemies will not disturb your quest to catch those underwater creatures.
If you’re still unsure where to find the Fishing spot in a specific fishing zone in-game, just look for a fish icon in the zone map.
Types of Fish in Diablo Immortal
You can catch up to 40 different species of fish in Diablo Immortal and all of these differ in rarity ranging from Common, Uncommon, Rare, Legendary, or Mythic.
The rarity of the fish you catch will dictate the rewards you get after exchanging the fish at the Fishing zone’s Fisher. With that said, you can expect to get items of random rarity or new cosmetics for your fishing rod.
You can view more information about the variety you just caught in the Bestiary Angler’s Log section.
In Angler’s Log, you’ll find even more data such as the natural habitat for specific fish species, the number of fish you have caught per species, the heaviest fish you’ve caught for specific species, as well as the heaviest recorded fish caught for specific species in your server.
Catch ’em all!
Fishing is more than just a pastime in Diablo Immortal; you can exchange the fish you just caught at the Fisher for rewards and compare fish stats with your friends for bragging rights. You can get even more rewards by catching various fish types and filling in your Angler’s Log in the Bestiary.
With that said, Fishing is breath of fresh air in the combat-centric game that is Diablo Immortal.
