This guide is being posted as a supplement to similar ones posted by @Cynic (Click Here for Cynic's guide), and @Ahirman (Click here for Ahirman's guide) to show how diverse fishing macros can be. Check out all of the macros posted and see if any are to your liking, or make your own! That's what I did. I didn't base my macro on anyone else's. I started from "double click fishing pole" and built it up from scratch based on what worked for me. Kirby's Guide to the Kirby Fishing System Details! > My system works best with 3 fishers, although it's not required. All fishers are mages. The only skills required to make the macro work are fishing, mage, med, and eval. (see below for more explanation on my fisher's skills) > In order for my macro to work, all of your fishers MUST be in the same guild. I also party my guys together, but that's not a requirement. > This only requires one macro that all fishers share, and a scavenger agent. > BE SURE to select the razor option for dropping fish at your feet! > The "Self Defense" part of the macro will automatically trigger (See below) but the macro can be easily turned into a mage turret as explained below. Okay, so my explanation assumes you'll be using 3 fishers. You have your main fisher, and your 2 alt fishers. I place my fishers on the 2nd tile behind the mast. I only use one macro that all of the fishers share, so the fishing pole double click is by type. I have found that for some reason it doesn't always work if your character is holding the fishing pole, so I keep my fishing poles in my fishers packs. This also leaves their hands free for spell casting. You will need to make a scavenger agent with the following items, and make sure ALL of your fishers have these items on scav: (1) raw fish steaks (2) sulfurous ash (3) cuts of raw ribs (4) black pearl (5) gold coin (6) cut up leather Here is my screen layout when I'm fishing. Things are not organized like this for the photo op. This is what I see every time I go out fishing. Pay special attention to my fisher's backpacks. Kirby is my main fisher, and Regis and Nicky are my alt fishers. The macro targets the relative location, 2 tiles away in the direction they are facing in that picture. After you make sure you have the correct razor options and scavenger items set up, all you need to do is make ONE macro, with the following: Code: !Loop Assistant.Macros.IfAction|4|0|oh Assistant.Macros.SpeechAction|0|21|3|ENU|0|I GOT ONE!

This macro does not require you to have your boat constantly moving. Your fishers will move your boat when needed. I put this into the macro because when I was first building my macro, my internet connection wasn't the best, and I got tired of losing conn, and logging back in on a random island while my boat sailed across the ocean on its own. When your fishers see the system message "Fish don't seem to be biting here" (or whatever it says...the macro looks for the word "biting"), each of your fishers will say "forward right one", which essentially moves your boat forward right 3 times (since 3 characters are saying it). Just start the macro, and have fun! What to Expect When You're Expecting...to fish Attacking monsters Did you fish up a monster? This macro has an app for that! I call it the "self defense" part of my macro. Essentially, it watches each character's health and makes that character spam E-bolt at the closest monster when the character's health is at 95 or less. If your fisher's STR isn't 100 for some reason (because you like black and white screens and characters in death robes?) then adjust the macro accordingly. Basically, a monster attacks one of your characters, and that character attacks back, BUT the bonus feature of this is that you can use it to turn your alt fishers into mage turrets. All you need to do is to move your main fisher 2 tiles away and cast lightning bolt at each of your alts. This drops their health down below the threshold and causes them to start attacking the closest grey. If your fishers are all guilded together as I suggested, then the closest grey will be the monster. The best part about this is, since this is all included in the fishing macro, your fishers are still fishing between castings. I have found that it is best to STOP your main fisher's macro, so you can focus him on healing and looting. I only use the mage turret feature when facing someting my main can't handle on his own. If I just come across a regular serpent, I let my alts fish, and handle it with my main. IMPORTANT!! The "self defense" portion of this macro does not look for red characters or NPCs...only GREY. Here's a short demo video of the mage turret feature: Looting corpses This is the reason for the scavenger agent. For this macro, I don't use restock agents to loot. At first I was using ONE character to hold all the loot, then I realized I was running to the hold too often, so I started using scavenger instead. This is very easy. Simply use your main fisher to loot, and just toss the items you loot onto the deck next to your alt fishers, and let them scav them. The only items I DON'T toss down are mibs, maps, nets, amibs, and weps/armor. Those items I keep on my main fisher. Regular sea monster loot (regs, gold, hides, meat), I just toss down for scav. I also find that with the way I have my macro set up, it's very important to DROP YOUR ANCHOR as you loot. Otherwise, you could find your boat sailing away as you try to loot a corpse. Fishing Macro Messages This macro has your fishers yelling at you, so pay attention. Also, remember to be careful of AFK gumps when using this macro. Here are the messages you will see your fishers yelling at you and what they mean: "I GOT ONE" "LOOK! WE NEED TO ATTACK!" >> These messages will display every time you fish up a monster. This message will always be followed by one of the following messages, depending on what loot the monster has in it. "This one's got a HUGE FISH!!" >> The fished up monster has a Big Fish. (My macro I use actually has the fisher cursing at me, here, but I altered the message for the guide). "Got one with a net, boss!!" >> The fished up monster has a Special Fishing Net. This does not distinguish between regular nets and hued fishing nets. "Arrr!! Thar be a map to treasure!!" >> The fished up monster has a level 1 treasure map. "Ahoy! Someone appears to be in trouble, boss!!" >> The fished up monster has a mib in it. This does NOT indicate an amib. Meet the [K$C] Master Baiters!! Here, I will tell you about my fishers, and the skills I picked for them. All of them are almost identical, with the same 6 skills, but each has a unique 7th skill that makes them work well together as a team. Kirby: (Main fisher...unique skill: Item Identification) > Fishing > Hiding > Magery > Meditation > Evaluating Intelligence > Resisting Spells > Item Identification (for identifying magic weapons and armor) Regis: (Alt fisher...unique skill: Tracking) > Fishing > Hiding > Magery > Meditation > Evaluating Intelligence > Resisting Spells > Tracking (for finding stray sea mobs and keeping an eye out for pirates) Nicky: (Alt fisher...unique skill: Snooping) > Fishing > Hiding > Magery > Meditation > Evaluating Intelligence > Resisting Spells > Snooping (for being paranoid. Sometimes (rarely), I share my boat with other fishers, and occasionally, I snoop them to make sure they aren't taking the good loot (amibs or hued nets) for themselves.) Well, that's it! I will keep checking this post periodically to see if there's anything I forgot. My memory isn't the best. Enjoy your fishing, and be safe out there!
