    What I remember:

    We would hypothesize about how to maximum the amount of crap we got from fishing MIBs. Do we fish while standing on the exact coordinates? Do we try to cast into the exact coordinates? Do we try to go as far from the site as possible?

    This was all with the aim of getting the most casts possible prior to pulling up the sunken treasure because we wanted... PAINTINGS! :D


    What I'm experiencing on UOR:

    More often than not I find myself casting dozens of times, sometimes filling my backpack with 40 items or more. I find so many paintings that I've put most of them onto my filter to drop in the trash.

    On the other hand, sometimes I fish up the chest in the first cast or two.


    Suggestion:

    Reconsider the number of casts it takes on average to bring up a chest, consider tightening the minimum and maximum number of casts, and making paintings more rare.


    Request:

    Please provide input based on what you remember from the era. It's been a long time and maybe my memory is skewed.

    I remember that hypothesis, but my testing never supported it

    Ahh, but have you considered different levels of fishing skill?

    The amount of shipwrecked items I have is obscene... OBSCENE I tell you!

    It's good for CUB, if you care about that. Keep all of the shipwreck items as they are easy turn in points for CUB.

    The main reason I did MIBs was because it was the easiest way to obtain CUB crap, and turn a profit while stocking my CUB house.

    I don't remember what it was during era because I never fished until UOR. With that said, I do think that sometimes can take way too long to fish up a chest. IMO I think more than 10 casts is excessive and unnecessary. I wouldn't mind, however, turning footwear back on when fishing from deep sea.

    I agree with you. For the server it would be better to make the paintings and other crap items rarer in general and introduce different hues.

    I think it would be awesome if fishing occasionally produced a pair of colore sandals. Nothing crazy, just something else that's exciting to get every couple hours :B

    Clean Up Britannia

    basically throw things away for points which you can save up for trinkets and what-not

    overall it's a system that hopefully discourages hording

    I remember (I think it was) Chris recalled in IRC once that he had known of someone on another shard who had discovered an exploit permitting jester hats to be made with no materials. The result was an entire tower filled to the rafters with jester hats.

    I also recall earlier antics on this shard involving insane amounts of fish steaks. As a matter of fact, numerous instances of fish steak hoarding with many purposes involved. I myself probably have several thousand fishsteaks and I don't even have a fisherman anymore.

    If I can't be rich in gold, at least I can swim in a giant pile of fishy jester hats.

    Thanks
    The Ruined Painting is also a depiction of Parmigianino's 1535 "La Madonna del Collo Lungo" (The Madonna with the Long Neck)

    I always thought it obvious but good to know
