Starting Beasts Below The Waves Quest

Ok, so first thing’s first, how do you actually start the Beasts Below The Waves quest in Cult Of The Lamb? Well, the first prerequisite for starting the quest is that you need to have progressed through Darkwood enough, so you have unlocked Pilgrim’s Passage. Darkwood is the first region you will find yourself in and is also the tutorial area, and you can’t really miss this one.

Anyhow, to unlock the Pilgrim’s Passage, you need to talk to the Fisherman found in Darkwood. After a bit of chit-chat, he will give you directions to a fishing spot, which is also the same dreaded fishing spot where you will be catching the rare fishes.

He will also give you the list of the fishes you need to catch to complete the Beasts Below The Waves quest. The list of the fishes is as follows:

  • One Octopus
  • One Lobster
  • One Crab
  • One Squid

If you have successfully received the above-mentioned list in the game, then we don’t really know whether to congratulate you or feel bad for you since this is one RNG-based quest. Anyways let’s continue and discuss the best ways to catch these marine creatures.

Methods For Completing Beasts Below The Waves

There are three methods you can use to complete the Beasts Below The Waves quest in Cult Of The Lamb. Let’s go through each in detail.

Fishing Method

The fishing method is the most basic and also the one which most players resort to.

  1. Location: Start by going to the designated fishing spot. The directions to this spot were provided by a fisherman in Darkwood.
  2. Time of Day: You can fish both during the day and at night. However, it’s recommended to make your fishing trips at night, as there may be a higher spawn rate of the desired fish during this time.
  3. Fish Varieties: While fishing, you’ll encounter various marine creatures, with the octopus being the most common and having the highest spawn rate. In your experience, you caught ten octopuses before any other fish.

This method can be effective for players who don’t mind investing time and patience in the game. However, it may take multiple attempts and trips to the fishing spot to catch all four required fish. Keep in mind that other methods or strategies may offer a more efficient way to obtain the desired fish, depending on the specific game and its mechanics.

Looting Method

Now to some of you, the idea of catching fish by looting might seem unusual but trust us when we say it works. To do this, you simply need to acquire the Neptunes Curse tarot card.

You can obtain it from the same Fisherman who gave you the Beasts Below The Waves quest. What Neptune’s Curse does is that it basically gives the dead bodies you loot a chance to drop fishes.

As for the rate of the drop, it is roughly the same as the normal fishing method. The looting method is again RNG based but hey! You need all the help you need considering the nature of the quest.

This method is also better than fishing by a mile because leaving behind dead bodies is always more fun than standing at the same spot hoping for a fish to catch on.

Ritual Method

The last but probably the best method is using a ritual. Be warned, though, that the ritual method is just as expensive as effective it is. The name of the ritual is Ritual Of The Ocean Bounty. You can unlock it once you have leveled up your crown to level 3.

The power of the ritual method is unreal in this regard. Since it not only doubles the spawn rate of normal fishes but also increases your chances of finding yourself a rare fish.

The method lasts for two whole days. So it is literally impossible to fail the quest in question if you are using the Ritual Of The Ocean Bounty. Speaking of tarot cards, read our Tarot Cards guide.

As for the cost of performing the ritual, it’s a whopping 75 Bones! Though you can bring it down to just 37 Bones, so do not miss such a golden chance.

Rewards Of Beasts Below The Waves
