Fishing is super buggy right now. Ranks don't correspond to drop ranks. And sometimes the reeling completely bugs out. Needs some work.

Thanks! The map location for spawns is very useful. Good guide.

the farm is pretty frustrating, 4 hours of fishing no fang, 25 KoS in a row, no fang. Yes i confirmed with the vendor i didnt have a fang in inventory... as usual when RNG dictates your future be prepared to be disappointed. I'm assuming at this point I'm just bugged.

As much as they want this system to be used to get people to work together, I am seeing a lot of the opposite given the way the RNG is working.

Well, randoms are camping party hunts, which is just fucking lame design.

As mentioned in the comments, you can get bait from the flower nodes. I've gotten glow worms several times but, as far as I can tell, they don't really increase your chances of better fish.

Thanks! I knew that already. What I wanted to point out in the article was that bait unlike in SoMI is more of an investment, because you can't buy it for a resource that's available in bunches (Gold). You either have to farm or invest AD. Will clarify that.

Cheers!

I must be very lucky, I got 2 fangs in 4 kos kills. I'm ready however to not see any other fang drop for the next 100 kills if that has to happen.

not sure on fang drop logic. Last night in five man party we did 2 KoS, my party got 3 fangs in 2 KoS. I got none but since we were working together I got to hunt. If it wasn't for teamwork this hunting thing would be a total failure for me. I'm now on a streak of 28 KoS and 6 hours of fishing without a fang. In the 2 hours of fishing I did last night without a fang a guildie who was near me got 3 fangs. I'll stick with the rngesus hates me logic

Daaamn hahaha feelsbadman. I would've stopped farming after 10 kos or 30min of fishing and go do something else, when rng is not on your side, better stop for awhile and try again later or another day.

unfortianetly we are fighting a weekly progression milestone. You don't get your 25 tomes from hunting this week you fall behind in progression. And sense I invested in hunting instead of tome capacity. This further slows progression. While I knew investing in hunting would slow my progression, it "can" make for an interesting side activity while we wait for the new dungeon and it allows me to help my guidles by letting them focus on the middle tree and still get the benefit of hunting (since I can get lures for them).

Yep. I would never do that but seems a valid strategy to get your campaign done with your guildies.
