    Make Fishing Great Again - Poll

    A lot of discussion on the community discord (and unofficial ones). Figured if we want anything changed we need to show it through official means.

    In a nutshell, the current fishing system doesn't really promote fishing, and hence reduces a lot of open world sea content (just like the new trade system). Instead of being timer based, it is based on the number of fish (which is very low in relative terms). This doesn't seem like it would be a difficult fix, they could even just increase the total number of fish to be similar to how it was before.

    I didn't really glean much from your explanation, sorry! How is bait created now? I think it was on the horizon of being changed in 2015 which meant buying bait was now only available via daily quest grinds

    Sorry are you saying there used to be less spots with more fish and you want a return to this? Or are you saying the change was less fishing spots, more fish

    I don't think they need the old system back because fishing generates pure gold without eating up resources which causes pure inflation.

    A simple fix would just have more fishing spots and have them able to spawn as small/medium/large and make the small about the amount of fish as the current ones (3 boats worth) and the the medium about twice that and then large about twice medium (so this would be about 12 boats worth).

    This would make the fix super simple to implement and also support larger groups for fishing runs.
    Epic Erenor Scepter - 856 Magic Att, 733 gimped DPS.
    Epic Erenor Katana - 815.3 DPS.
    Epic Erenor Bow - 693 DPS... worse than the gimped weapon even though it's a primary weapon.
    "Balance" . . . This doesn't even take in to account the 978.4 epic erenor nodachi, or 978 mAtt staff.

    Are you sure it's now ONLY based on the number of fish? It's still also on a timer, correct?
    I think the current system is okayish, although I probably would prefer to have bigger fishing raids. These were really fun.
    But the general labor per gold ratio should be upped a bit, as the time commitment and risk is so high.

    Fishing should remain a valid form of gold creation. Most players have fond memories of fishing and it creates dynamic social content (pvp, alliances).
