    Okay, I just started my fisher yesterday. :) Roughly 53 skillright now. WOOHOO.

    Anyway, about how many fishsteaks will I acquire by the time I hit GM? I'm going to save them all for the library turnin, and according to my calculations, I'll need around 3,200,000 to get the glasses.

    So how many of those can I expect to get just as I grind to GM?

    Little over two years ago I trained a 'new' fisherman. I had 45,004 fishsteaks in my bank box, when she hit grandmastery.

    You can get 'a few' more fishsteaks if you stack your fishes into larger piles. A pity that I cant give you exact numbers. One fish cut up yields 4 fishsteaks. If you cut up a larger number your getting some kind of bonus fishsteaks from them. There is only one other bug involved: You cannot get more than one full stack of fishsteaks from cutting up one stack of fishes. To get your bonus-fishsteaks you shouldnt cut up fishstacks of about 12,500 or higher. (15k would yield into 60k fishsteaks which is the normal 1:4 ratio. If you cut up stacks >15k you are going to loose some.)

    Cool, thanks.

    Another question: Does the double resources in fel thing apply to fishing, too? I'm going to go find out for myself first, but I figure couldn't hurt to ask here.

    Actually, you lose steaks at numbers over 7500 fish.

    The formula is

    only 1 fish = 4 fishsteaks, OR
    X fish in a single pile (X>1) = (8 * (X-1)) + 4

    2 fish = 12 steaks
    3 fish = 20
    10 fish = 76
    100 fish = 796
    etc., etc.....

    Up to 7500 fish = 59,996 steaks

    Ok Seriously, has anybody tried to cut up 7501 fish and see if it will even let you cut that much at once?\

    The answer is NO, you can not cut up 7500 fish at once thus getting the full bonus. So basically I have just wasted alot of time fishing to get the bonus steaks to turn them into the library.....

    Ok after further testing, the results are in. Not sure about this formula but if you take 7500 fish, strip naked and empty your pack you can put 550 fish in your back and cut them with a dagger close to you. If you do that for the whole 7500 fish you will get a total fish steak of 59944 steaks. If you do the same thing with the dagger in your pack you can only put 549 fish in your pack, and you still get 59944 steaks. So I don't think the formula is quite right, well not that is not right, but you don't seem to have to have more fish after a certain point for the bonus.
