    i was out fishing for a hour to day and kinda desided to sell some fish steaks that was raw seems not many do that as i sold 1200 and got 160,000 gold for them aprocs

    starting price was 62 gp a one and wen i was done i got 60 gp a one now thats pritty good if you ask me

    figured i let you all know so that no more of them old players let them pore jung fishers fish and give it to them for free

    i sold my fish in brit tram but i guess allot of towns offer good price on fish steaks raw ones might even give good price for boild ones not sure did not try

    be sure to cut them as hole fish only sold for 5 gp so thats no good:gee:

    Who did you sell them to? "You have nothing I would be interested in" is the common reply. The cooks offered 2gp each.

    I'd have to agree, dbl checked all cooks and fishers couldn't get anyone to offer more than 2gp for a fish steak.

    I can't seem to make these numbers add up. If you got 160,000 for 1200 then that is 133 gp per each on average. Where does the 62gp to 60gp come into this?

    Something smells a little ...... fishy?

    *ducks*

    I generally fish in Fel. Think I'm going to put this one as one of those fish tales we keep hearing about... Its too easy for gold farming to be those numbers...

    That doesn't help much. What shard are you on and what npc did you sell to?
    We need a name or a shop and a city. You are far too vague. On purpose? Hmmmmm.

    On ATL I also find them only buying for 2 gp Each Tram or fel

    Possibly he found a vendor that somone just bought them up just before he sold his off. But 62 each is just an INSANE amount.

    You post some far fetched info that you cant prove. Others on here have tried selling their fish the same as you have we all come to the same conclusion.. 2gp. When asked to show, you get defensive. "your not my friend and i am not your mum"... You are the one that has told everyone about it. All we ask is... prove it.

    I think I will. And Ill post when I get 160,000 gp by fishing 20,000 fish...

    20,000 fish*4 steaks per fish....Ill even post a picture to prove my feat. Care to make a challenge out of it?

  17. I think at least some of these kinds of posts are due to people who are shills trying to bring players to freeshards. He was probably on a freeshard where he got the 62 gold for a fishsteak.
