I wouldn't do it bumbling, even if its possible. You can make pretty good money killing serpents and they constantly drop treasure maps. Plus all the fish and skins from serpents just sit right there on your boat. Its a nice lucrative way to play the game with little to no interference.

aye but for a macro It would be nice... However I did it all last night and this morning when I signed back in still not .1 stuck at 94 I guess I will have to play him to finish off fishing =p I didnt know you could make any money off them unless they pull a t map. I might give it a try if I dont gain soon =P

I realize you are new, but you should realize that AFK fishing will get you banned. As will any other afk ressource gathering.

I did not realize that since I didn't believe it to be I can understand mining and lumberjacking how does fishing fall under this? just curious.

on another note I was out attempting to fight the a sea serpent with my lil guy and it seems they are tougher than I remember. I added my fighter to the mix and now (so far) have done alright. still stuck at 94 atm.

Yeah, the deep sea serpents are even worse. I was lucky to have a spare guy with gm wep skills,tactics and healing before I even bothered with giving him fishing, really helped.

Well you are gathering fish, they are useless, yes, but you are still gathering. I personally don't give a crap if you afk fish but I've seen Derrick comment a few times on the subject. :wink:

Someone said that you only get the Mibs and Tmaps from serpents when you are GM.

I take it this is the case? My fisherman has been pulling up serpents galore with no sign of the good loot.

Just figured I'd chime in...got to 93.2 from land (papua docks..shows as deep water, but apparently doesn't count). Had to get a boat after 2 days of macroing and no gains...now gains coming like crazy.

Also, getting level one maps on the serpents (2 maps off 10 serpents so far) at 94.5 fishing.
