The last area with fishing spots in Dunley Farmlands. This one is located in the northern part of the map and even though it is the second largest region on the map, it only contains 2 fishing spots.
V Booming Fish Oil Farming
In V Rising, fish oil can be obtained in 2 different ways. One is to decompose caught fish and the other is to loot different areas of the map.
If you’re really into fishing, then breaking down the fish you’ve caught might be the best way to get fish oil. However, this is quite a slow method and we recommend the second option instead, as it allows you to explore the map and find other valuable items as well.
Fish Oil is a frequent drop from mobs found in different areas of Dunley Farmlands such as Mosswick Village etc. In these areas, fish oil can be found by looting different crates and also by defeating monsters.
Why Use Fish Oil in V Rising
In V Rising, you won’t need fish oil in the early and middle game. However, in the later stages of the game, fish oil will be an important resource as it will be needed to craft items from the highest level.
Specifically, fish oil is needed to make Pristine leather, which is V Rising’s highest quality leather. So be sure to collect as much Fish Oil as possible in V Rising so you can craft Virgin Leather later.
V Rising Fish Bone Farming
Fish Bone can be obtained as loot from certain enemies and chests, and by collecting the fish you catch for them.
The best and fastest way to farm fish bones in V Rising is to use the fish you catch to mine different materials including Fish Bone.
In order to be able to collect materials from which, you will need the Devourer structure, which is obtained by defeating “Lidia the Chaos Archer”.
