Final Fantasy XV Navyth’s Challenge Side Quest Walkthrough
Similar to the first two quests in Navyth’s quest-line, if you wish to beat this mission, you need to catch a specific fish, known as the Vesper Gar.
While the previous two side-quests where quite accessible, Navyth’s Challenge is more difficult, because the Vesper Gar is a fast fish and it will fight until the end.
You can start Navyth’s Challenge immediately after you complete Fishing, Naturally, but since Navyth will relocate to Vesperpool, in order to reach him you have to complete the Party of Three story quest.
After you unlock the Vesperpool area, seek the fisherman on the southern shore of the lake. Talk to him and he will challenge you to catch a Vesper Gar.
Objective: Catch a Vesper Gar
Before casting your line, check the shop on the eastern shore of the Vesperpool lake. Purchase the Dragon’s Beard line, the Stinker: Malbodoom lure, the Nereid reel, and the Death Spin rod.
Now, head back to Navyth, or if you wish, try your luck at the fishing spot near the store.
Equip all the items listed above and cast your line.
As we have mentioned the Vesper Gar is fast and violent, so the most important thing is to be patient. Again, reeling in bursts when your controller is not vibrating is the key when trying to land the Vesper Gar.
Pay close attention to the fish’s moves and try to change the direction of your rod immediately after the fish changes its own direction.
To make this quest easier, you should attempt it after you level up your fishing skill. The higher your fishing skill is, the easier this quest will be.
Objective: Show the Fish to Navyth
When you finally catch the Vesper Gar, go back to Navyth to complete the quest.
The fisherman will reward you with the Invincible Iron Giant lure and you will be able to start his final quest, named Angler’s Nightmare.
