How to Increase Fishing Skill Level

Noctis increases the level of his Fishing skill by catching fishes on fishing spots located all over the map. The amount of SP obtained depends on the rarity and size of the fish.

Tips for Increasing Fishing Skill Level

Since the SP gained depends on the rarity and size of the fish, it is recommended to use the best fishing equipments available and aim for fishing spots with rarer and larger catch.

      Hi! Thank you for your question :)
      Noctis needs to sneak behind the Black Chocobo until Ignis distracts it. The player should keep the chocobo inside his field of view to see if it is looking around, if so, Noctis needs to duck (hold square). Keep on doing this while also moving towards the chocobo until Ignis distracts it. While it is distracted, pick up the glasses then run away before the timer ends.
