    Stupid UO!

    So I have been lured into actually working fishing for the first time in my UO career. Spending the time to do this boring skill when I haven't really had play time is a big deal :spider:

    So today I'm sailing around slow forward doing my thing catching many pounds of slimy fish and not gaining. I went to a dungeon and fished up an entire area. Not even a GGS.
    (my skill was 95.6)
    I check my skill list. Fishing is pointed up and I have 620 of a 720 total skill cap, and I also have skills pointed down.

    Hours go by without a gain. Feeling defeated I unload my hold and take my boat to another facet. Fish Fish Fish... nothing.

    I go home and put all my skills on soul stones, flush everything I had turned down, and go back out hoping I don't have to actually kill anything (lol)

    Now I have gained! .4 so far! Hooray! :lick:

    So what made the game think that I was at my skill cap at 620? That's not even a new player's skill cap.

    I haven't tried putting the skills back on, but wow how much time I wasted today...

    I wish I could just bring myself to unattendedly macro... I do understand why people do it.

    *grumbles* :eek:

    dungeon fish is not deep water and you can only gain in deep water

    The dungeon thing was just to try to fish in a different place so I would get a gain.

    Now that I have taken off skills I have gained .8, but I should have been gaining the entire time. Perhaps not as fast, but at least .1.

    That skill ball thing is amazing to use when gaining fishing.
