    Default Fishing

    Man I miss fishing...it gave me something to do while I waited for other things in other MMOs. Thats the biggest problem with rift...while waiting 1-3 hours for a LFD pop, I have nothing to do! I just leave the computer on and go watch TV. Thats super sad...come on Trion, where are those fun little time wasters we all love so much???

    I wouldn't say it's the biggest problem...but I'd like fishing, too... I'd like cooking as well. Just fun random secondary time wasters with a few achievements and vanity items, nothing special.

    Won't happen sadly, Trion aren't releasing non-raid content these days.

    I can see it happen actually.

    It will be something like, start off with 100's or 1000's of people in a big fishery chatting about flies and fishing tactics.
    You catch a fish every second which grants 5 skill points. When you reach 100 skill points the only fishing left requires you to go out on a boat in the middle of nowhere with 19 other fishermen.

    Gotta love these people who just somehow know exactly what Trion will and won't do through their magical scrying powers.

    You don't know what will or won't happen until Trion releases a statement about it...and even then, devs have been known to change their minds about things after years of saying no.

    I love the fishing in wow, it was great fun and the cooking was profitable too. I'd like to see a casino somewhere in this game where players could go to wait or relax and win or lose gold. A 'Tera Hold'em table would be accessible to both factions and optional pvp could settle any disputes between same lvl characters. Just a wish...
    Just, comfortably numb....

    IMO, fishing is the biggest waste of time in an MMO. Not for the players, but for the developers. Same with Chess.

    People asked for it in Asheron's Call. Not only did it take away from limited developer time, but it had several bugs in it so that you could pharm loot from the monsters and make a ton of money off it. It took even more developer time to fix it. Once fixed, no one played chess anymore after 3 months. Thus the whole development time ended up being wasted.

    They added fishing to Vanguard. Same thing happened. It was "cute" for awhile, but after several months, it largely was discarded by everyone.

    Etc, etc, etc.

    Silly in game things like Chess and Fishing are largely a waste of time for developers, because quickly, the players grow bored with it and stop doing it.

    Catching the rat was great. Catching the turtle mount was just epic.
    Never did get the dagger

    Lol, just remembering the fishing costume I fabricated, and the chef one.

    I used to get pet pig out, don the chef costume and stand staring at it with a cleaver.

    Oh I got some threatening tells.

    Everything has a chance to be exploited or buggy. The reason it was was probably because those were smaller games, the devs rolled their eyes and just threw a half-baked product on live, or didn't give a crap at all about the exploiting.

    They aren't a waste of time if it's something people will do and something they can show off their skills at developing with. I've played really engaging fishing in silly Korean F2Ps all the way up to subbed mainstream games, past and present. If done right, it's very fun for the players and the devs because it's another way to add cool stuff to the game without the intense balancing act of raiding/classes.

    Also, do we actually know how many devs there are? I really hate the whole arguement 'no dont do this bcuz thers only 3 devs and we need MOAR PvP/PvE!!!11!1' when no one has information to back it up.

    +1 for fishing plz.

    As for the comment "waist of time, people will eventually get bored of it". Is that for fishing or the current content??

    Seriously, yes, other content should come first. Guild banks are finally coming. Something like that is more important then fishing. However, like that "other game", fishing gave me something to do. For some reason I like it. Its great when waiting for a group to form for a dungeon.

    Yea except for that upcoming PVP update in 1.4, and the new 50+ zone coming after, and the 5 man dungeon and more expert rifts...yea nothing coming that isn't non raid content at all. Oh and that world event with all the 5 man content that is coming in 1.3. Thats just a made up lie, its not real.

    I want fishing also. And I'd love if it were a little more elaborate and awesome than WoW's rather lame fishing system.

    I'd LOVE to see a huge time sink like Fishing implemented. However, what I would want Trion to do is MAKE SURE that if the fish you catch is used in anyway for profit thru potions, recipes, etc that afk'ers cant use macros or add ons to just farm this stuff.

    Make it so people have to be at their keyboard, like if you get a bite, you have to do something to keep the fish on the line and THEN finally hit another to reel it in.
    The key is to Vary how many times you have to tap the keyboard to keep the fish actually on the line before you can reel it in. I'm not talking about spamming your keyboard, put a slight pause here and there and then an indicator that blinks to tell you the fish is ready to be reeled in.

    ROFL thats alot of fishing then I waited 4 hrs the other day for a group to no avail, I came to this game to get away from WOW as did probably most of you, why do you want it to be like WOW please give yourselves a uppercut.
