    Default Fishing required now?

    I'm a huge fan of dimensions, but I don't fish. I have absolutely no desire to fish either
    . I was really looking forward to some of the dimension items that I knew were in beta, only to have my hopes and dreams crushed when I read that they were bind on pickup, and from fishing.

    Ya, the more I started reading about the fishing thing the more disgusted I am becoming. I would feel a lot better if it was not BOP.

    Also why not make all the other gathering skills get Dimension items. Is fishing really all that easier than butchering/mining/foraging? IMHO boulder dimension itmes should drop from mining, tree's/shrubs/flowers from foraging and bones/teeth from butchering.

    I guess I'm just upset that I didn't pick up fishing but instead spend as much, if not more time as most fishers, doing my foraging.

    For most of us that do fish we have one character that does the fishing because obviously it's fairly pointless to have more than on character on a shard fishing. So yeah this kind of thing really sucks, as well as them removing cash gain from fishing up chests in the first place.

    Nobody is forcing you to go fishing for those items... you are making the choice to go without them however, if you don't go fishing. This is your choice and a matter of personal freedom.

    However, I happen to fully support the changes to Fishing chests/caches. This course of action will severely limit the income of all of those fish-bots I keep reporting in Shimmersand and Cape Jule...

    ..
    I love dimensions though, I just hate fishing, it's boring to me. Sure you make a lot of plat from it, ad get good drops from it, and now dimension items. But for me, I hate it. I want a bench, and some cherry trees(which I was REALLY looking forward to) but now I can't have them. I guess I'm just a little butthurt. I would love if foraging or apoth or butcher had special dimension drops as well.

    Buy the blue rep fish on the auction house and turn them in for fishing caches!

    Presto! You didn't fish them up...

    This ^. Once I find an item I want for a dimension on a toon that has no fishing skill, I send fish for the quests for that zone to them to turn in.

    Who says they are not going to do this? They probably implemented the fishing changes first to help combat the bots. The other gathering skills were not being so heavily abused by bots.

    All the other gathering skills DO get dimension items. Or have you not checked for the recipes by the crafting hall in Tempest Bay? Every gathering profession (and crafting profession, or that matter) has access to dimension items recipes.

    They are used to craft dimension items yes, but it's a more lengthy process than what fishers go through.

    Anyway, the cherry tree should be a foraging item, not fishing. Give fishers old boots, stuff like that but not trees.

    You are making the full enjoyment of one aspect of the game dependent on another completely unrelated area of the game. Buying rare fish to buy fish caches is only a workaround for a problem that should not be there(Although a good idea).

    I hate fishing, I only leveled it up when I could fish sunfish, I don't like the idea of paying 15$ a month to fake fish in a virtual lake inside of a video game being played indoors.

    This still doesn't address not being able to have the items used in Guild Dimensions.
    Which I know isn't what the OP was complaining about at heart, but is still a problem caused by the same issue.
