I started to notice I am getting a growing dislike for crab fishing. Initailly I thought I was a really nice idea, something totally different. Now doing these Monger Quests and the amounts of crabs/lobsters needed for these make me start to realize what I find disturbing about crab fishing. Now to be clear .. I don't mind putting time in to achieve something in game, it is not like I wish it the easy way. And if the amouts needed for the quests were lesser, I think I wouldn't feel the way I do now. But this crab fishing atm feels like I am staring myself blind to my screen, trying not to miss a *bob*. Literally ... It gives me the feeling I cannot look away for even one second. I lost the feeling of relaxation during game play. When crab fishing I have hardly time to roll a smoke or reply in ally/clan chat, icq, eat potato chips ... etc etc, because this fishing system is setup in this fashion you have to pay attention ALL the time, and on top of that have to click alot. With alot of active activities like hunting, I can run to a spot and invis, just stop chopping wood to do the little things I do when playing. When scribing with make max option, and fishing on repeat, alchemey I can be laid back, chat and even mend some clothes or catch up reading bits of forums. I have time to chat with my man, look at his screen when he wants to show me something, pet the cat or whatever. Sometimes I had orders which had 3 lines with crabs in which an amout of 20 is not uncommon., and they occur in many orders. It often takes me 1-2 hours with 10 traps to just get a 20 done. In this time I am totally absorbed and sucked into my monitor. Even running 1-3 quests a day you risk some kind of crab/lobster in your order. I could do it with maybe 4 traps, but then I double the time I need to fill an order, but I notcied the intensety between 4-6-8-10 tramps in staring at the screen doesn't differ much. And tbh for the types of rewards 4-6 hours for one quest I think is a wee bit overdone, it is not like I am getting some arti or such. I have had happen after spending 4 hours on a 5er-6er quest to end up with a book. Again I do not mind working for what I want ingame, but I guess it is the "intensety" combined with the frequecy that this activity asks for that is starting to bother me. What would already help enormously would be if a trap has content it flashes or something, till you take it out or it sinks, not for the 3 secs you get a warning now. So in short what I am basicly saying, is I find crab fishing pretty intense for to often. Is it just me ?
