Vannath Coast is a fishing spot in Final Fantasy XV found on the beach near to Galdin Quay. It is one of two fishing spots near to Galdin Quay, the other being Galdin Shoals. Vannath Coast has a tackle shop, and is some of the first fishing spots the player is likely to come across, and thus is populated by many beginner-friendly species of fish. It never rains in Galdin Quay, so there are no weather-specific fish.

The player can visit the fishing spot in Chapter 14, but the waters are barren and the player can't fish there.

Quests[edit | edit source]

Angler's Nightmare completed.

Navyth Arlund's last fishing quest, Angler's Nightmare, has Noctis catch the "Devil of the Cygillan" (Murk Grouper). Navyth is found on the beach at Galdin Quay. It is best to be at least level 7 in fishing, though the quest van be completed when lower. The fish won't be visible on the minimap until Noctis's fishing level is 10, but it can be found on the fishing spot nearest to Navyth during daytime by casting the line to the middle of the fishing area, or a little to the right. If the player spots a giant fish lurking under the surface, they have found it.

Suitable lures are the ones that sink, but an especially good fit is the Burrower: Abyss Worm. It will be a tough battle to reel in the fish, as it will struggle a lot (water is splashing and the controller vibrates). The player must not reel when the fish struggles, but there might only be short windows for reeling as the fish fights back most of the time. Tapping the reel button tends to work better than holding against fish that struggle a lot. Because the fish is so big, it wears down the line fast, and thus the player needs good technique and equipment to catch the fish. Eating Kupoberry Cheesecake before taking on the quest helps with preserving the line longer. The game can be paused during the minigame, and thus tapping the pause button and adjusting the reel/do not reel and direction while the game is paused can help with preserving the line.

Completing the quest yields 5000 EXP along with the Tranquility rod (290 defense).
