    OK it has been 2 weeks, only pulled south facing oars. I play chessy, gm fisher. Am i doing something wrong? My debris consists of a pillow or bone pile. The chest is either on the 1st or 2nd cast. ANYONE ELSE EXPERENCING THIS?? IS IT A BUG?

    Stay as far away from exact spot as possible while still fishing up debris should increase chances

    This is the messed up RNG... try different area/time/sailing direction/hat/fishing pole/boat/facet/etc :p. This is UO, its full of weird little bugs.

    Really?
    Fishing further away from the spot maximises the pre-chest loot?
    I never knew that... But I guess it kind of makes sense.

    Yeah, i cant remember the exact radius for the spot that you can be in, but i just slow forward to my spot that i mark on my map in the EC, as soon as i start fishing up the preloot yell out furl sail and sit there and fish. sometimes you sit there for a good ten min gettng preloot.

    Good Luck!

    I always thought it is just random chance.

    It may be random, was trying to research it but cant find much on it. I know if i stand on the exact spot i get chest in one to two casts. Standing farther away i get more pre loot, might be a good question for the ask the devs to clear up.

    Thinking i usually start about 10-15 tiles out, move in a circle, and work my way inward, there Is a finite distance from the coords where debris starts/ends, but I do not know how far
