Coming back to Brittania yet again after another long absence, seems I just can't stay away. Anyway, I'm a bit unsure as to how fishing works now. For RP reasons I created my fisherwoman with no mage skills to speak of, instead she uses a quarter staff and throws potions around a lot. I always managed to deal with everything I came across at sea easily enough; deep sea serpents were hard work but I always managed ok. Apart from fishing the only thing she does 'outdoors' is a bit of wandering and healing. With the High Seas changes is that even worth thinking about now? Can I fish just as before and just run away from pirates or am I going to spend my whole time saying oooOOOooo? I do have a pure mage who has 100 odd skillpoints that aren't used for anything much so I could move fishing to her but I'd rather not leave my current fishing character with nothing much to do other than be a wandering healer and I can't face training fishing from scratch again. Some advice would be welcome. I'm not looking to create the 'ultimate template' just a character I can have fun with. btw, if you see Catriana or Elana wandering around please say hi. I don't think anyone I used to know is active anymore. Thanks Cat.
