    The MIB update is great and long over due. After you have fished up a few and get back to your Monger quests...LOOK OUT!

    I have placed hundreds of traps since the latest patch. I have not lost a single trap to sinking. However 50 to 60% of them come back empty and all that do 'catch' are a single *bob*. One Critter per trap. This has drastically slowed down my trapping and I don't like it!

    I suspect this is due to water tiles getting depleted now.

    They should have left traps out of this particular change.

    They DID leave traps out of the change:
    Personally I'm having a much happier time with traps, I have lost one, but I didn't always pull the whole lot out when the first ones started to bob. The ones I left in the water bobbed later.
