    So...I have been fishing again for about 4 days..

    I am @ 105.9 Fishing, (PS'lled to 120 so a LONG way to go...)

    My goal thus far has been to fish each night unitl I pull up 10 or more MIBS...sometimes this is REALLY fast (1.5 hours....) and other times slow...(only 5 yeserday in 3+ hours)...

    Be that as it may, I open the MIBS every night in hopes on an Ancient..and so far...ZERO in 53 MIBs!!!

    So..I recon I could've sold all 50 (unopened MIBS) say for 100 k each (this seems to be at or below market value on ATL), and then could've bought 3 maybe 4 Ancients off a vendor...


    So...fellow line casters...do you sell OR do you gamble and open yourself???

    Do them yourself. Wait till you have a bag full then open them up, you might have a better chance of getting what you want.

    I posted on this subject a while back. I got my 120 fishing scroll on 12/26 and ate it. Shortly after getting above 110, I stopped getting ASOS. After OVER 400 and no ASOS (something is DEFINITELY broken!!!) I started saving them and then opened using another char on another account. First 50 I opened I got 3 ASOS. Please don't tell it's RNG... 0/400 is more than that. Another note- since hitting 120 fishing, I now NEVER get an arty from leviathan, and I solo them, and have done MANY. Someone please look at these issues?

    I dont have that problem at 115 Fishing JimmyB : 2 Ancient Sos out of 15 Mibs. (stopped at 15 since I'm trying to sell them as mibs)

    I've only noticed an increase on catching sea serpents after I passed 100.
