    Firstly, its great to be back. I have taken a year out and am so happy to be back among the population once more.

    I have picked up fishing on an existing char.. I am at around 55 skill so far but I was wondering if i need to upgrade to High seas to do the fishing quests and own the new boat type.

    I started my T hunter with lockpicking and carto and I am working magery... is tinkering a good skill to complement my training for making lockpicks ect and cannon ammo???

    also as a pure mage how well will i do if I am working the guardian spawns solo?? would I be able to solo up to say level 5?

    I have ready the faq but wanted some info from you active t hunters out there.
     
  2. Ahoy! I also am a returning player, I have been gone 3 or 4 years. I am picking up fishing on a character also to try out this new booster. I went from 45-65 fishing in about 4 hours of fishing I would say. My T-Hunter however is not on the account that I reactivated, so I am debating reactivating that account as well. With a pure mage you are going to have a tough time doing lvl 5 spawns. Id recommend either taking taming or bard skills. Alot of people are using the new Mysticism i think it is, but I have no experience with it, and do not plan to, as I refuse to buy the gargoyle expansion. Below is what my t-hunter template was, and it worked pretty well for up to lvl 6 maps (the highest at the time i left).

    100 Magery
    100 lockpicking
    100 Cartography
    100 Peace
    100 Music
    100 Meditation
    100 evalint

    LvL 5's can be done easily with magery. I have no trouble doing lvl 5's on my t-hunter and his 'fighting' abilities consist of 110 magery + 110 meditation. (So using ev's + invis + keeping some distance yourself is enough to deal with monsters from a lvl 5.) Not to mention, that my t-hunter wears not the most expensive suit. *g*

    While you can fish up the new mib items without the booster, you will need to buy the booster to own a new ship and do the fishing quests.
    My char on Siege has a somewhat strange template, enhanced by jewels since I can make new ones easily enough if I lose them.
    She has: Hiding, Stealth, Stealing, Fishing, Cartography, Lockpicking, Magery, a small amount of Ninjitsu.
    Currently she's going nicely in circles fishing up mibs from treasure maps and digging up treasure maps from mibs.

    Thank you for all your advice, I am making a new char to be my treasure hunter so I am keeping fishing on my mage, having said that my Thunter is going to be a mage anyhow so I may just convert this char and make a new char to "hold" his leftover skills. How does this look??

    Current skills:

    Magery 110
    Eval 110
    Meditation 100
    Spellweave GM
    Mystic 90 (will be 100)
    Imbue 79 (grrr)
    Fishing 60 ( ;-( )

    If i stone of skills and use

    Magery 110
    Eval 110
    Fishing (100)
    Carto (100)
    Lockpick (100)
    mining (100)
    Meditation 100

    I have had a look at this temp on the template thread and it seems ok, what do you guys (and girls) that know what you are talking about think??

    thank you again.
