Tyria is home to over two hundred unique species of fish, and they can’t escape you anymore. Take your skiff and rod or kick back on shore to reel in ingredients for delicious local cuisine. Your next big catch could be the key to victory in fishing events.

Trivia[edit]

  • Regarding the development of fishing, space was intentionally left for this feature during the development of the Core game:

Some Chefs out there may have noticed that there is not a single recipe with fish in it. Nor do fish in the rivers, lakes, and oceans of Tyria drop fish meat. This was all done intentionally.
We aren’t going to have fishing on [2012] release and we may not even have it any time soon (initial expansions/Live updates), but there is a place for it when the time comes.
