New World has taken control of Steam, trending and being one of the most played games right now. It even reached nearly 1 million players in a day. Needless to say, New World has become a widely popular open-world experience.

It wouldn’t be a massively popular MMORPG without fishing, right? Well we’ve made a little guide when it comes to the New World fishing hotspots.

What are New World fishing hotspots?

Fishing hotspots are places in Aeternum that grant players a faster fishing experience.

Hotspots can, however, be used up. Hotspots act as “nodes”, and can be depleted, just like a Mining node. While you can continue fishing when the hotspot is depleted, you will no longer see the “Landed in Hotspot!” text when you cast, nor will you get the quicker bite.

Fishing respawn timers

Each fishing hotspot will have a different respawn timer after the hotspot has been depleted. These are as follows:

  • Broad: 20 to 30 minutes
  • Rare: 30 to 45 minutes
  • Secret: 45 to 90 minutes
