    When you are trapping in the Abyss with lava traps do you get the *bob* messages or do you get "the fish don't seem to be biting" message?

    All I ever got was the latter and never caught anything so I assumed it was broken like so much other stuff.

    Oops forgot. Congratulations!

    Also, when you say the Abyss, you do mean down in the lava and not in the Underworld. Just checking to be sure, some folks label it all the Abyss.

    Actually, it was in the underworld- that spot where the stealable "Rotting oars" spawns, if you know where that is.

    Just to let you know you can catch the Void crab in Ter Mur. Plan on using a metric buttload of traps if you do not have bait. I think I've pulled 3 Void crabs as of now 2 with bait and 1 without at 120 fishing skill. Also the Lantern fish lives in Prism of Light, caught that guy with crystal fish bait at 120 fishing skill. Here is a link with some pictures of them.

    Just tried lava fishing for the 1st time since hitting 120 (stopped trying at 110) For a very unpopulated shard (Origin) to get the "fish don't seem to be biting" message tells me something is broken. IMHO.
