How To Get Fish Oil In The New World (And What It Is For)


Fish oil is a common resource made from rescued fish in New World, and it’s important for players to get it if they want to prepare more advanced food.

New world, like most MMOs, is full of activities and professions to specialize in. Of the 17 professions to be pursued, cooking is one that keeps players healthy and fit. However, in order for players to improve their cooking skills, they need a lot of fish oil. Fortunately, fish oil is an abundant resource that, with a little patience, won’t be too difficult to find.

Fish oil comes from fish in New World. To get it, players must first grab a fishing rod and cast out their line. New World fishing rods can be easily purchased from a store or made using engineering skills. Players will need to collect more hemp and green wood if they want to make their own fishing rod first.

To find a good fishing spot in New World, players can search for a large body of water around them or use the in-game tools to find one for them. If you enter “fish” in the search bar of the inventory menu, players will be shown all fishing locations on their map. Some spots are better than others when players are looking for specific fish, so keep this in mind.

When the players have finally chosen their location, it’s time to fish for yourself. Players can either stay on the bank or go into the water. You should equip your fishing rod and press F3 to activate a fishing popup. After you cast out the line and wait a few seconds, the game prompts you to catch up with the fish via a simple, tension-based mini-game. As soon as the mini-game is successfully completed, the fish will be caught.

Once the players have collected enough fish, they must mark and select the stacks in their inventory Salvage. This breaks the fish down into different components, including fish oil. While certain components, like fish fillet, are guaranteed, there is no guarantee that players will get fish oil every time. Therefore, if players intend to harvest a lot of fish oil at once, players may need to hoard some fish before saving them. It can also help to improve your fishing skills and choose the right bait.

While fish oil isn’t incredibly useful on its own, combining it with nuts at a kitchen station turns it into cooking oil, which is far more important. With this cooking ingredient, players can easily hone their cooking skills in the New World and move on to higher tier dishes. It is not always necessary for players to harvest their fish oil themselves thanks to trading posts and auction houses, but this is much more reliable and technically cheaper than buying them every time.
