Fishing isn’t available right from the start in Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes. You’ll need to:

  • Progress through the early story for around 90 minutes until reaching the town of Eltisweiss.
  • Here, Ymir will task you with recruiting more members for the Eltisweiss Watch at The Hero’s Den.
  • Once you gain the ability to freely leave Eltisweiss, exit south, and follow the path west, taking the northern fork across the bridge.
  • Continue east past Werne Village until reaching another fork, then head north to Fort Xialuke.
  • Enter the fort and walk through the massive gates to emerge in Grum County-North.

From this new map area, take the northwest path leading to the village of Arenside – this is where Nowa’s adventure began.

Obtaining the Fishing Rod

Navigate around to the southwestern corner to find Huang, an elderly fisherman standing beside a small bridge.

Engage Huang in conversation, and when prompted, choose the “Love it” option to express your passion for angling.

Huang will gladly gift you the essential Bamboo Rod, finally unlocking the fishing mini-game for you to enjoy.

Now equipped with your rod, seek out wooden piers or docks along rivers and lakes on the world map. Approach and press the action button to cast your line into the waters. Important things to remember while fishing:

  • Be patient and wait for the telltale splash indicating a fish has taken the bait.
  • When you see the exclamation mark, swiftly press the action button again to set the hook and reel in your catch. However, act too slowly, and that fish will wiggle free.

Each fishing hotspot contains a limited number of fish, so you may soon deplete the area’s stock for the time being.

But don’t fret – the pools will naturally replenish after a few in-game days, allowing you to revisit favored fishing holes.

Rare Catches and Rewards
