    The same argument could be made for power stones, whetstones, and pots too.

    I agree. It took me 6 hours to fish enough brightwater octapuss fir recipe to mske 20. The issue is investment. It is not worth the time to fish rare fish fir what they give. Hell it isnt even worth making to sell for a profit. Why wiuld someone pay a 15 plat for a stack of food that offers only +3 more then a vendor item thst is literally a 10th of the price. Its not about.." i fish because i enjoy it". You can enjoy it no matter changes to buff or catch rate. Problem is..is its just too much of an investment with no real reward for the time. Not to sell and not to use. It should be looked at.

    I dont even have survival and i like to fish, its a great pace changer and i give the fish to a guildy. I'm just saying, not everything in the game is made purely for the way you want to use it and the standard you want it to be. Fishing and survival gives more posibilities, how much effort you're willing to put in it is up to you. You want stuff that is much better for less effort. Isn't that just eating your cake and wanting to have it too?

    Because fishing and survival..like other crafting professions have this purpose..otherwise fishing would just have achievements. Its made to do both..but only really does one. People wont always fish just bevsuse its leisure fun. I know i dont really enjoy farming diamonds..but i like the powerstones. If you fish only because its fun for you..then fixing it so its worthwhile had not negative effect for you. Right now its a good way to pass a little time in queues or waiting fir raid and event. But to fish for the purpise to creating items..which is just as much a purpose as to enjoy..is not worthwhile at all.

    @OP, then don't fish. Buy your faction food.

    I enjoy fishing. It's relaxing, it provides me with better food than Isle Embrosia and stat food for my guild's raids. The fish i don't need, I sell and they net a very respectable supplement to my income. I can do it for any amount of time, doesn't matter if I only have 5 minutes, I still might get something nice. The only problem I have with fishing is the bag space it takes up. To remedy that, I have a couple suggestions for Trion-

    1) Add a tab to the character sheet for professions where we can put our fishing poles. I would also love to see slots for other harvesting implements, with better quality ones being able to harvest more mats from a node, and a spot for a harvesting bag.

    2) Introduce a harvesting bag, which would only be able to hold harvested items and tools.

    I do value health alot, why i rather use a cake and a scroll to get about the same.
    that will get me 400 hp and 20 sp
    Except that the scroll doesn't stack with other HP buffs.

    For PVP there is +400 hp food that only requires one green each to make really. There's nothing comprable to that out there. The stupid gravemaker gives a mage 90. That's not negligible.

    As far as the feasts go, they need to stack to 99. Outside of that if you think +250hp and increase spellpower/ap to your raid isn't worth the mats that the feasts take you should probably also stop using banners because they're about as expensive.
