Lobster/Crab Fishing: Suggestions and... HELP ME PLZ!

    Ok, first the suggestions:

    1.) Reduce the waiting timer for the trap to *bob* to at least the length of time it takes to fish up a fish using a fishing pole. It takes too long for the trap to get full - this is way boring. Please help with this Devs.

    2.) Put a Crab Fisherman at every dock please; this stinks that we gotta go all the way to the sea market to buy traps - they go so quickly... Or, allow us to recall/gate to the sea market so this isn't such a pain in the hind-end.

    3.) Increase the time it takes for a lobster trap to disappear to around 4 seconds please. Currently if it *bobs* 2 times, its gone. This also stinks.

    Now for the help:

    I need some tips for Lobster.Crab fishing. Please list your suggestions for catching lobster and crabs, so that us, unexperianced crustation hunters can join the party.

    Thanks.
     
  2. I place around 25 at once and I run back to the first pot and it's usually time for the trap to be collected...maybe i'll try 50 one day.
    There is a Bank on the floating docks, just buy 500 pots, put them in your bank or boat, use them as needed.

    I've noticed that while you're on the fishing quest you never catch the quest fish, lobster or crab needed for the quest. I now just fish and catch enough fish, lobster and crab for all quests. I start quests after I collected around 10 of each fish, lobster and crab...you can really do the quests fast by saving your catches.

    Just remove the lobster traps form the game. That was easy.

    Find someone vending them if you can. I bought a few thousand to sell at my Store in Gyldenfeld if your on Chessie.

    I have trouble and am rather slow due to arthritis and all... this sort of reminds me of the color room in the underground... which I also can't do.

    Most the time I don't even see one *bob*.... before the trap vanishes.

    Sometimes there is only one *bob* and the thing vanishes.

    Sometimes it bobs like crazy for a second, then is gone...

    I wish it would give just a bit more time.

    Don't think it makes any difference fast/slow. i've had my my cursor right on the traps, and dbl clicked on them before they were sucked down, and they still got sucked down anyway.

    it doesn't matter how fast you click. if a trap goes down, it goes down. you can take your time to collect the traps after the *bob*.
