Warframe – How To Quickly Catch Rare Fish On The Plains Of Eidolon


A new week in Warframe means new Nightwave challenges to complete. One of them asks us to go to the Plains of Eidolon and catch six rare fish. In this guide, I will show you how to wrap up this quest quickly.

How To Catch Rare Fish On The Plains Of Eidolon

The first thing to do is to make sure you have everything you need to catch some rare fish. I’ll be keeping this guide as friendly as possible for new players to make sure you don’t need to grind too much Standing to complete this Challenge.

The first thing you need is Lanzo Fishing Spear. You can buy this from Fisher Hai-Luk at Cetus for 500 Standing. It also helps to get some Luminous Dye, which you can even get for 100 Standing. Both of these items can be bought from Hai-Luk without having ranked up with the Ostrons Syndicate.

Finally, you will need some Murkray Bait. To get this, you need to have achieved the rank of Visitor with the Ostrons, and it will cost you 200 Standing. If you are new to the game, don’t worry too much about spending Standing on fishing items, as fishing is one of the best ways in the game to quickly earn Standing in the game.

To make Murkray Bait, you will need the following resource:

  • 5 Tralok Eyes
  • 5 Mortus Horn
  • 10 Goopolla Spleen
  • 20 Fish Meat

Before you head out to the Plains, make sure you equip all these items in your Gear Wheel, via your Arsenal.

Plains of Eidolon Map

Load into the Plains, then head for the mark shown by the player indicator and cursor on the map above. The ocean just below the Hillside Ruin always seems to have some active hotspots. Make sure you look around to find areas in the water with bubbles coming to the surface, this is where you want to fish. Murkray can be caught during the day, or the night, so it doesn’t matter what time you go fishing at.

Now equip your Lanzo Spear, throw in your dye and your Murkray bait, and wait for the fish to show up. At this spot, it should only take a few minutes to catch all the fish you need.

It should be noted that Murkray, Norg, Cuthol and Glappid fish are all considered rare, so if you have been playing for a while and have the relevant bait, you can catch any of these types of fish for the Challenge.

There you go Tenno, now you know an easy way to catch rare fish on the Plains of Eidolon. It looks like Konzu isn’t the only one getting an early lunch today. As you are near to Cetus, you might want to pick up a Sepfahn and build a new Zaw.
