Genshin Impact 2.1: Genshin Impact recently revealed a lot of information about the upcoming version 2.1 update. Genshin Impact went live on Twitch and announced four new playable characters which includes Sangonomiya Kokomi, Raiden Shogun, Kujou Sara, and Aloy from the Horizon Zero Dawn. A brand new fishing system has been introduced along with a new Serenitea Pot to raise Ornamental Fish. It also revealed the arrival of many events which includes the Hyakunin Ikki Event, Spectral Secrets, Mendacious Waves, Light Caresses the Moon, the Lunar Realm event and more.
Genshin Impact 2.1: Players will now be able to catch fishes all across Tevyat by getting their hands on different kinds of fishing rods which they can use to catch various types of fishes from the water. To unlock this new fishing system in Genshin Impact, players need to unlock the Serenitea Pot System and complete the “Exploding Population” quest.
Genshin Impact 2.1: Players can then start off by crafting baits of different kinds which attract different kinds of fishes. After making the bait, players need to select the appropriate fishing rod for fishing. Players can exchange the fishes they caught with different kinds of fishing rods from the Fishing Association of that particular region. After interacting with the Fishing point, players need to hold the Cast Rod button and aim the bait in the water and release the Cast Rod button.
After the bait is underwater, the Cast Rod button will transform to the Raise Hook button. Players will need to press that button when they observe that a fish attempts to eat the bait and is in a struggling state. If they don’t press the button on time, the fish will successfully escape after eating the bait.
While fishing, players will also need to keep an eye on the fishing tension line which needs to be in the yellow Ideal tension zone. This indicates that the fish is struggling and will eventually increase the chances of successfully catching the fish.
