Once you’ve acquired your first pole, the next step is to find a fishable body of water. Many of the waterways in Terminus will be fishable, with shared fishing-related loot based on the local ecology.
Expect to find certain wildlife that’s catchable only in brackish water, freshwater, saltwater, lakes, rivers, ponds, or swamps.
Starting out you can expect to catch lots of algae and, occasionally, rusted or soggy goods.
As your skill grows with use though you’ll find more exotic wildlife to use in crafting and clues to lost treasures
As an advanced fisherman you can acquire sturdier and more exotic fishing poles to fish in other bodies of liquid such as raw mana and pools of toxic ichor.
Some examples of the wildlife you’ll encounter from fishing are: Brouter, Soldier Fish, Puzzin, Raytails, Severfish, Saltbelly Craws, Mudkings, Odamynx, Cuddlecreepers, Snapfishes, and Meatmauls.
The primary use for fishing rewards is for crafting recipes by Provisioners (cooking/brewing) with some overlaps for Alchemists and Scribes.
Various species of fish populate the many waters of Terminus. Some certain wildlife are expected to only be found in one area, such as brackish water or swamps.
