Krillson, Master Fisherman

Krillson, Master Fisherman is an extremely rare and mysterious master, voiced by Chris Wilson. He can be encountered in the wild, though usually only one player in a party will see him. Additionally, Krillson will vanish if the player moves too far away, including leaving the map.

He describes himself as "Krillson of Winding Pier fame", which seems to be a play on Chris' introduction to Build of the Week.

He will not give quests unless the player has a Fishing RodFishing RodFishing Rod

equipped. It is not publicly known what he does or how to complete his quest, if it is even possible.[1] Most likely, he is simply an easter egg. To clarify, there are no known or recorded instances of actual fishing or fish-items in the game.




Hi, I'm Krillson of Winding Pier fame.

For years, people have been asking me to teach them how to fish. Many question whether fishing is even possible in a harsh, unforgiving continent like Wraeclast.

Captain Fairgraves

It is relatively well known that Captain Sigmund Fairgraves was an explorer and sometimes a pirate.

What's less known is that Fairgraves was a whaler of some significance. This is interesting, of course, because whales make up only one percent of all sea life. When you catch one, however, it pays for all the rest of the fish in your net.

Zana, Master Cartographer

Zana has offered to take me to every corner of Wraeclast. I declined. I would miss my fish too much.


Without Rod Equipped

To become a Master Fisherman, one thing is for certain: you're going to need a rod, preferably one with good cast speed.

So if you happen to see a fishing rod on your travels, then bring it back to me. I'll be here as long as the fish are biting.

With Rod Equipped

Excellent. You have passed the gear check and appear to have a fishing rod. A rather nice one, too. Now you are ready to catch some of Wraeclast's finest fish.

The next step on your journey to becoming a Master Fisherman worthy of the Winding Pier is to actually catch some fish. Fishing is the simplest thing in the world. With your rod equipped, just approach a pool of water and cast away. It's really intuitive.

Soon, you'll find yourself overburdened with fish of various types. Before you rush off to trade your haul for a better rod though, bring me back a few of the choicest specimens to demonstrate your skill.

Claim Fish Reward

You... managed to catch the fish I wanted? Congratulations! Let's keep this a secret between the two of us, shall we?

In the meantime, take this. It should be useful in the future.
