The devs have been talking about giving fisherman some love in the near future, so I decided to compile a few ideas. I'm curious to know what other fisherman would like to see in regards to the overall experience. Here are a few thoughts. Changes and Additions to Fishing/Crabbing -Stack Fish pies (they are potions) (fixed pub 80) and Crab meat (ingredient just like fish steaks). -Fish pies need a boost; either increase power or longevity. The demand in the market is pretty low. -Ingredients for fish pies should be stackable and looted from monsters, merchant ships or SOS chests in addition to the Sea Market purchasing. -Currently you only get one crab meat bowl per crab regardless of thier weight. Crab are much harder to catch and should atleast be in line with the return rate as rare fish are with steaks. -Bad animation when fishing with hooded robe. (classic client) Out of body experience.. -Crabbing needs to be more interesting in Trammel/Felucca and Ilshenar by adding Legendary and rare crustacean. -Crabbing needs to be more rewarding, add a way to get MIBS from crabbing! -Bait alone seems ineffective and many times even with the fishing suit the results are discouraging. -Add the last two fish types to the taxidermy list. Fishmonger Quest -Change fishmonger quest to point/menu system much like the spring cleaning. -When completing a quest you will recieve points depending on difficulty and a chance to recieve a powerscroll and/or basic bait. (no books! make them purchasable through menu store) -Hooks instead of bait cups for fishing is an excellant idea, was listed on Ask & Answer #6 (Bait cups will need to stay in for lobster traps) -Make Legendarys worth points for turn-in to the fishmonger; based on weight and type? Possible New items for the quest -Kreel, a blessed basket that can only hold fish and crustaceans, works much like a quiver and reduces the weight significantly. Could make this a wearable for the half apron or sash slot. Perhaps have some stats added like fishbait enhancement. -Crabbing Skiff, works very similar to the rowboat but smaller in size and gives a small bonus to catching legendary Fish and crustacean. Its main ability would be; it can be deployed in certain dungeons, Ilshenar, underworld, Labrynth and lakes of Malas excluding Doom. Various areas wouldnt get cluttered with these boats since they go back to the player's pack after they leave the vessel. -Magical Lobster Trap, Can only have 2 deployed at a time. Will stay in the water for as long as 10 minutes and automatically return to the player unless intentionally removed or player loses connection. A trap that cannot be lost! The regular traps will still be viable because of the limit on how many can be deployed at once. -Magical Lava Lobster Trap, Can only have 1 deployed at a time. Will stay in the lava for as long as 10 minutes and automatically return to the player unless intentionally removed or player loses connection. The regular lava traps will still be viable because of the limit on how many can be deployed at once. -Drift Net, Designed to catch fish in bulk excluding Legendary fish. The longer you leave it in (1 hour max) the greater haul you recieve. This item will follow the player on a boat or along the shore, can be commanded to stay put at sea if you wish. This would work like a pet using a context menu. Depending on where its deployed will determine what family of fish is caught. Dungeon, deepsea, and shore fish. -Deeded Trash Barrel, A one tile Trash barrel that can be placed on the Britannian Ship or in a Home!
