|Forest of Fishing
- This area is for Plague Knight only. For the counterpart for Shovel Knight, see Forest of Phasing.
The Forest of Fishing is the first arcana course the player can reach. It is located in the first quadrant of the Valley. As its name implies it is intended to be cleared with the Bait Bomb.
Enemies Encountered Edit
- It is in fact possible to clear the stage without using Bait Bombs or any arcana at all, as seen here.
- However since many cipher coins are in the glowing pits, you have to use Bait Bombs to make them appear.
- It uses the Plains tileset which it also shares with the first encounter stage, making this the most common tileset in the game.
