How rare are treasure map sea serpents when fishing deep water?
I just got to 90 fishing earlier today, since then I've caught about 15 sea serpents but none with a treasure map.
Also does the quality of the fishing pole matter for anything (skill gains or success on serpents) ?
a NPC or Newbie pole vs an Exceptional crafted fishing pole? i know at one point in OSI it started to but don't remember when.

Maps (and MIBs) appear directly in your pack here, not on sea serpents. You'll actually get fewer spawn the higher your skill.

I believe the required skill is also 90.1 real, not shown, to fish tmaps. So you may have been slightly under still. At GM, you'll get approximately one an hour... not sure how that scales down, but it might take a while to get your first.

The type of fishing pole doesn't matter. I just use a newbie one. (Don't think they can even be made exceptional here.)

There was a patch back in 99 that increased the chance of MiBs slightly anyone know if this ever got applied?
"Fishing: The chance of pulling up messages in bottles will be increased somewhat. "

http://wiki.uosecondage.com/Ultima_Online:_The_Second_Age_Patch_Notes_for_05/25/1999

was just a thought, i remember them getting a bit more often then a night of fishing only getting 3 and that being a good run

I started with one fisherman, and would get about 1-3 MIBs every 2 hours. I then got bored trying to get mibs with just one char and throw fishing on two scrap chars. I now get about 5 or more a hour using 3 chars.

I don't do my fishing afk so using one char isn't worth the hours of keeping watch and anyone wanting mibs should do the same if you have room for the chars.

I just found out that fishing doesn't work as I remember it.. not from OSI but from other free shards.

ATM I have 3 fishers with fishing up to 93. It's the only skill they have so I have a lot of troubles with sea serpents which happen to pop every 5 min max.

I saw some post talking about peacemakers for fishing and then the usual archer.

So the question is which one should I go for?

first thing first, do you have to kill the serps to get the SOS? If so this answer the question about archery vs peace maker.

Someone give me a hint please :)

Thanks!

The mibs dont come from the serps here. You just fish them up like a fish.

Personally I have magery on my fisher.

Ugh those dolphins!! I swear they swim in front of my boat on purpose so I just launch a couple arrows at them whenever I see them, they are learning and starting to run away now. Muhaha

Cause they keep trying to crash my boat! or trap me with like 2 deep sea serpents, buggin things...

Anyways has anyone been using their fisher last day or two?
I've prolly fished about 7+ hours over last two days in that time I've only gotten one MiB and Two Tmaps one of which got while typing this.

Has anyone else noticed a massive drop and rates? or is it just me having some fisherman's bad luck? (if so maybe i really should stop killing those dolphins....)
