    Now that it is the weekend I will try manually catching only 'small catch' and see if I get more glacier smelt. I'll report back tomorrow.

    (Also I have three sturgeon in my inventory now. I think I'm going to hold them hostage in a pet forever, for the pain they caused me prior to this event. Biggest one is 233 cm and need 300 cm for 5* :'( )

    What are you trying to use the sturgeon for? :o Cooking?

    For the quest.

    For which quest are sturgeon used?

    I am ignoring the event.
    While I could really use a new bag
    1. I rather play the game then afk fish
    2. I don't have the inventory space for all the crap I don't want
    3. I can't get rid of all the gems I have anyway, any more and I would have to try and give them away.
    4. Literally nothing but the bag interest me.

    How about instead of afk fishing Manual fish.
    Not only are you doing something. But it gives 3200 chances to get a bag.

    They aren't so much used for a quest, it's more that filling in the fishing journal with 5 stars is a quest, but you can technically skip the sturgeon cus 'forever fishing' says 'collect 24 five stars' and there is 25 fish you can catch with star rating. Also catching one of each fish makes the fishing journal give you more info on fish

    They are not bots, they are alts. People really want that bag and they it will increase their chances. Thing is though, I have not heard of one player on any server getting this bag. I wonder if the bag is actually in the event...

    Got to hand it to them for being that hardcore though. I tried doing the event with one alt whenever I don't need to use my main, opened around only 100 traps and already having inventory problem, not knowing what to keep and drop. I'm so not doing that anymore..

    That's just too tedious to keep staring at your character for hours, just for a chance to get some more of Glacier Smelt. I afk fished for 3rd day now and i already got 69 (Hah... Good number...) Glacier Smelt.

    69 Smelts already? Snow way! That number sounds quite...fishy, as Icy it. But AFKing for 3 days? Sounds like you should Chill out. Even though AFK events in Mabinogi are a Polarizing topic that many love to debait, it is great, as the minutes in one day Articking away. Might as well use them for other things, am I right?

    Have I made enough puns to be cool now? B)

    Idk if i wanna laugh or cry rt now...

    I don't know. While the rate is low, the event is absolutely no effort at all. Combined with the daily 130+100 limits of baits, there also no urging for me to fish for the entire day.

    The prizes are not that great, but to reiterate, there is no need effort needed to AFK fish, and the daily limit doesn't give me a reason to sit around AFK fishing.

    Overall, I say this is rather fair.

    Wait. Is that a typo or am I missing out on an extra 100 a day? I only get 100+30.

    Fishing events should be permanently off the table since SAO Nishida title exists. It's just login//slot-based traffic generation for Nexon, pretty much.

    Unless you make it fake-fishing and instead of a fishing rod, you get a minigame instead (where you're holding a rod and the minigame is an actual challenge that can be done with friends) that can't be autofished by way of rank B+ fishing

    there are other 2nd titles that give the same effect as the SAO Nishida title. MMO Junkie Moriko's Partner 2nd title coupon does basically the same thing plus it also gives boosts for other life skills that involve gathering things so technically it is better then the SAO Nishida title. either way I don't there is any reason to remove fishing events. compared to some of the fishing events we have had in the past this one is one of the best plus once you fill out most of your fish journal and have rank 1 fishing the fishing skill becomes fairly boring. fishing events are something for fishing masters to look forward to and it might help encourage new players to try out fishing as well.

    Sturgeons were the bane of my fishing journal's existence. They are rare catches in general, which combined with the 5 star quality needed, makes them a hassle. The bait limits the catches to Traps, Smelt, Glacier Smelt, and Sturgeons. It helps quite a bit.

    Ice Fisher 2nd Title Coupon: Not Tradeable


    I MEAN REALLY WHY NEXON. I already have a 2nd title for fishing, I do not need another one.
