High Seas Testers: Anyone Test Fishing Skill Gain from 100.0 to 120.0?

    To the High Seas testers,

    Has anybody tested Fishing skill gains from 100.0 to 120.0 using a Crystal Ball of Knowledge? I wanted to know if anybody was able to find "Optimal" gains in between this range of skill because from 95.0 to 100.0 skill gain, "Easy" is the best gain rate you can get. Was hoping that the devs. were able to adjust the water tiles so that we wouldn't have to sweat it out all the way to Legandary Fisherman.

    I'd test this myself, but for some reason I can't download the High Seas beta.

    Thanks in advance.

    No mention of how scrolls for it are obtained either?

    I doubt they adjusted the water tiles for more difficulty.
    Fishing is probably just a 'keep at it' skill to gain.

    Most likely its the same as it was from 0 to 100. Keep fishing!

    You actually WANT Easy not Optimal, as the gain only triggers from success; You are more likely to gain on an Optimal success, but they come so much more infrequently than an Easy success which has a similar Gain rate, you actually see better gains over time on Easy. In the last month I've taken Provoke, Discord, Arms Lore, Mining and Imbuing from 30-50ish starting point to 120 each, and the Easy gains for all of them were more productive than the Optimal.

    and we were really worried about you..

    I think many testers just set their skill to 120 without testing the gains. Unfortunately for us, the beta test shard is closed now.

    My guess is that they tested that at least, or checked that the formula does give you a chance to gain even at 120.

    I set fishing at 120 to test that, then set it to GM, and was getting gains, albeit slowly.

    I finally got the HS beta downloaded, now it's been stopped so I can't test this.

    Well seems server is closed and I uninstalled it.
    :)

    Be positive it may work, if in doubt just wait a few weeks until the major bugs are worked out.

    First one to find an exploit in the booster content gets a cookie.
    :p
     
  11. I never did beta test this. I have read two things about this though;

    One of the previous notes about 120 fishing indicated you had to do quests to get 120 fishing, or maybe to at least be able to go above 100?

    Did you begin any quests before getting a gain above 100? I take it if you were gaining, that we don't need a power scroll to get to 120?

    I read on UO Guide that you can get gains from Lobster Traps too. I wonder if that would be a better way to gain.

    Most of the gains I got were fishing in dungeons. However, my results maybe skewed beccause most of the fishing I did was in dungeons.
