Fishing is one of the biggest additions to Guild Wars 2 End of Dragons considering there are many things to do that relate to it, such as completing fishing collections or completing the mastery track for fishing and Skiff piloting.

There are quite a few different fishing collections introduced with the mechanic and they require the player to travel all over Tyria to complete them. Some fish will be super common, while others will require players to finish some parts of the fishing collections.

Completing every single fishing collection will take players quite some time since there are 30 collections for players to complete. There are some achievements that will reward players with Guild Wars 1 inspired titles as they complete a number of collections.

To aid players in finding where the fish might be, the collections offer some clues. The hint offers a clue as to what locations players can find the fish. There’s also an indication of where in the water the fish can be found, such as if it’s a shore fish or an offshore fish. Some fish may like specific bait, and some only appear at certain times of the day. This information can all be found by hovering over the fish in the collections screen.

All of the collections except for the ones that reward titles offer up six Chunks of Ancient Ambergris, which is one of the new crafting materials introduced in End of Dragons.
