In Genshin Impact, there are a lot of items that you can get. The items that you have gotten can be used by you for some purposes. One of the items in this game is Fish. This item can be used by you to cook some dishes. But, do you know where the best place to farm fish is in Genshin Impact?
Locations to Farm Fish
In Genshin Impact, you are able to find fish in bodies of water around the map. It will be easier for you to get fish from ponds near settlements because it will be easy to teleport as well. Besides getting fish in the water, you can also get fish by buying it from Uncle Sun, Uncle Gao, and Wanmin Restaurant. The fish stocks from them refresh daily. Uncle Sun sells Fish for 240 Mora. Uncle Gao sells Fish for 300 Mora. If you buy fish in Wanmin Restaurant, the price is 240 Mora.
If you want to get fish from these uncles, you have to make sure that you come on the right time because if not, you may find that their shop is closed. Uncle Sun shop is open from 06:00 to 18:59. You can find this shop near the southwestern part of Liyue Harbor. When the shop is open, you can find that he sells not only fish but also other seafood such as crabs. Uncle Gao can be found at the wharf in Liyue Harbor, Liyue. The time is about 11:00 to 19:00.
In Genshin Impact, fish is a type of crafting component which is usually used for cooking. Fish comes in different varieties and all varieties are simplified into the similar type of component. The varieties include Golden Bass (Liyue Harbor), Black-Back Bass (Springvale) and Blue-Fin Bass.
In the Hoyolab site, there is a post about Aqua’s fish farming guide. According to that post, you can find fish in Mondstadt:
- Starfell Lake where you can get about 4 to 8 fish.
- Springvale Areas where you can get about 4 to 8 fish.
- Whispering Woods where you can get about 3 to 5 fish.
- Thousand Wind Temple where you can get 2 to 4 fish.
In Liyue, you can get fish at:
- Liyue Harbor where you can get 6 to 12 fish.
- Qingxu Pool where you can get 2 fish.
How to Get Fish
To find fish, you can swim underwater. The area near the shore will be easier for you to catch fish. If the area is far inside, it will be hard to get. Now, you can try to swim under water and then get closer to the fish and get it with your hands. Another thing that you can do to get fish is to use your weapon and kill them first. After killing the fish, then you are able to collect them.
If you wonder which way is better. The second way is better because if you get the fish by swimming, the fish will usually run away. When you catch fish in this game, you have to take a look at the stamina of your character. If you find that your character spends too much time stamina, the stamina will go down and even it can make your character drowning.
