ONE Store Beta Now Available

Blizzard announced that its latest update for Diablo Immortal rolls out today, and it introduces fishing into the game.

Cast aside your weapon, weary adventurer, you’ve sent enough demons home to wriggle in the Hells today.

Specifically, fishing will be available to all players starting at Level 43. To unlock it, you’ll need to go on The Greatest Pastime quest to get a fishing rod.

After this quest, you’ll get a fishing rod and you’ll be able to fish in three designated spots: Ashwold Cemetery, Bilefen, and the Frozen Tundra. You won’t have to worry about any attacks as these fishing areas are marked as safe zones.

To start fishing, you’ll need bait which you can purchase at a Fisher. With rod and bait in hand, you should tap the Rod icon to choose where within the Fishing spot you’ll cast your line. Soon, a timer will appear with different colored fish icons.

The longer you let the bobber sit in the water, the bigger the chance that you get a rare species of fish. Though as with most fishing mini-games, you can’t wait for too long else you won’t catch anything at all.

With fish in hand, you can head over to a Fisher to exchange them for rewards. Fish come in five categories: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Legendary, and Mythic. The rarer the fish, the better the rewards that you can get.

Aside from rewards for exchanging fish, there’s also the Angler’s Log where you gain a new entry for every new species that you catch. By collecting more unique fish species, you’ll also get other rewards. There are 40 unique species in total, so you won’t run out of fish to catch anytime soon.

Alongside fishing, Blizzard is also giving players a treat int he next update to thank them for their support. All players will be given a special bundle of rewards via in-game mail that consists of of 3 Legendary Crests, 1 random Set Item, 1 random Legendary Item, and 6 Normal Gems. 

Much like previous content updates, fishing along with these rewards will be available tody after the server maintenance. The maintenance period starts on February 22, from 8a.m.–10 p.m. PHT (GMT+8) for Oceania, China, East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Europe Servers, and on February 22, from 4 p.m.–6 p.m. PH (GMT+8) servers in the Americas.
