    Hail. I have been fishing for 8 yrs, was always pretty easy. But now I am having a lot of trouble with water eles. they spawn 3/4 at a time.. can't fight that many at once. Anyone else with this problem? If so, how do you handle it?

    My fisher is a mage with Healing & Anatomy which lets him heal in spite of the fast monster spellcasting. He does well when playing fish in a barrel on a boat. :)

    Mine is a Archer/Paladin/Fisher. He does fine. He can actually take 3 Kraken at once. Actually I'm not sure what happened but my fisher is one of best fighters.
  4. Three to four would be a little difficult for my fisher who is a poisoning chivalry fencer but I used water elemental slayer weapons and they go down pretty quick. If there were 3 or four I would also use enemy of one and consecrate weapon.

    My fisher is a mage, with a water ele slayer Scrappers. Chain lightning is downight vicious, with the boost to the minor slayers - I can do 200+ to 3 water eles at once, 300+ to 1-2 eles, with the spell, by quickly disarming my pole and arming the book.

    Protection, though, is a good thing to cast while fishing, then remove when not needed.
  6. I also cast a fire ele when fishing.

    There are some places on the seas, where water eles spawn and respawn. Just move you ship to another part of the world. There are not many spawning locations like that around..
