    Congrats, one of these months I am hoping to finally find mine. I don't even want to think about how many quests I've done, but it has been tons to say the least, I have so many baits and books I don't even know what to do with em all, the books are taking over my storage at the house. Have gotten plenty of 105's where I bound 8 to make myself a 110 powerscroll, contributed others so my hubby could make a 110 ps, bound even more to make 110's for guild mates, and still have 105's in the bank. Sounds like a lot, but it would not even be a pinch of what would be needed to make a 120 ps.

    One day.... I hope to get a 120 before I go completey bonkers with all this fishing. I can honestly say I don't see myself EVER doing another quest once I do get the scroll though. I wonder even now what the benefits could possibly be, but I'm the type where I am bound and determined to complete something once I decided to do it. I may even have to rethink that part of my OCD... LOL.

    I got a 120 on my 461st order, just one day after hitting 110 skill.

    How are you guys keeping track, so precisely, of the fishing orders that you do ?

    I mean, 46ONE ? 75THREE ?

    Do you actually take note of them, manually, one by one, or is there some convenient utility that, as they come, keeps up with updating the log ?

    pops they are fanatics

    i have done maybe 30-50 quests and reached 105. I dread doing another 500-800 quests *shutters*

    but alas I am gonna start on it this week i suppose.
    I think i might fish up a ton of turn-ins first as having a quest specific fish means you dont get that fish :(

    Well heres how I calculate mine...

    When I do a quest session.. I have an empty bag in my pack, as I get rewards I drop them in that pack. Once I quit for the day I record how many rewards I received during that session... The rest is Basic math :)

    And those 75THREE quests were all after publish 69

    I use a tiny website to calculate my fishing results on europa and siege perilous. ;)

    Code:
    Fishing Results - Siege Perilous
    quests accepted: 38	quests completed: 38 (100.00%)
    1 liner	2 liner	3 liner	4 liner	5 liner	6 liner
    23	12	2	0	0	1
    60.53%	31.58%	5.26%	0.00%	0.00%	2.63%
    
    Rewards
    Autumn Dragonfish Bait	4 x	67 charges
    Fairy Salmon Bait	7 x	100 charges
    Giant Koi Bait	4 x	37 charges
    Great Barracuda Bait	1 x	10 charges
    Holy Makarel Bait	4 x	39 charges
    Lava Fishing Pole	2 x	2 poles
    Lava Lobster Trap	2 x	2 traps
    Order of the Dragonfish #1	2 x	2 books
    Order of the Dragonfish #2	2 x	2 books
    Order of the Dragonfish #4	3 x	3 books
    Powerscroll Fishing +5	1 x	1 scroll
    Stone Crab Bait	1 x	17 charges
    Yellowtail Barracuda Bait	5 x	62 charges
    
    All i got is a +5 Scroll. The 6-liner of junk fish gave a book iirc. Somehow every quest on Siege seems to involve huge amounts of crabs/lobsters. They are a pain to get and each trap costs 500gp. To get 20 of a certain crab i need 60 traps (those that go poof).

    Anyways .. congrats. What which did you have to turn in for the 120 scroll? Did you write that down by any chance? ;)
