    Should Fisherman not get fame for turning in Fishmonger quests? Like tailors and smith get for BoDs.

    And special Naval titles! like Captain and Admiral . :)

    Fame/Karma System is in need of some love

    I don't see why you can't say for fishing trade in fish/crabs/named fish for Titles/Ranks/whatever Fame Boosts..

    Fishing BODS..good idea btw

    Fisherman/woman Hall of Fame things of that nature..

    After all it is a RPG no? Just with not as much RP anymore..

    I personally would never play a fisher full time but..just a drunken thought..

    I couldn't agree more. Fame/Karma needs to mean something again kinda like it used to.

    Some very good ideas in here. Personally, I cannot fish for very long without getting a bit bored (kinda like mining and lumberjacking), but a lot of these ideas have merit and should be implemented.

    In my opinion, you should always gain Fame after completing a Quest. Not just reputation, thought that should also be a part of your reward.

    Sounds good to me. Gain fame every time you catch a fish over 10 stones.

    I think the quest system needs to be changed to a fish BOD system. But as for the OP question, yes, they should get some fame too.

    BOD's are the way to go! Questing gets way too tedious
