    So is it true there was to be fishing but it was removed because it was not "fun"? Hmmm.. If that is the case I vote for this:




    We need some form of fishing. It is a great time sink.

    Sir, or Ma'm, that is a contradiction. Fishing isn't fun..... leave it alone.

    Deadliest Catch. King Crab.

    That's the kind of fishing this game needs to make it fun.

    I dunno about you guys, but I legitimately like WoW fishing. Never underestimate the ability of MMO players to enjoy mundane and repetitive <REDACTED>.

    There should just be spear fishing, but your telegraph for it is the width of a spear and all the fish move extremely fast under the water in random directions.

    Indeed. I have always loved fishing. Did it in EQ, EQ2, WoW, Rift. I actually resubbed on Rift mainly to try out their fishing and I returned shortly to Vanguard for the same reason.

    Vanguard made a mini game out of it. Never stuck around long enough to find out if the rewards was worth the work put into it, but there are ways to work in a mini game.

    However I like the more meditative vegetable state of fishing too at times.

    Rift made fishing dailies for each zone and made a marked difference between shallow water and deep, which not as visible in WoW, not to mention their mutitudes of lures. Like WoW the fish makes up a good part of the cooking (survival skill in Rift).

    Any MMORPG with cooking needs good fishing, and I do not mean goblin fishing.

    I always enjoyed FFxi fishing u had to real in the fish with different strengths and timing.. (using a xbox pad it also viberates on the fish pulling on the line)... if they make the reeling in fun instead of watching a splash of your lure in water and press 1 button..

    Fishing is boring but is usually profitable.

    If they put fishing is ok. If dont, ok too.

    I did fishing in WoW and Rift when I didn't feel like the regular same ol... and for achievements.

    I like time sinks.


    That RPG fishing video was hilarious.

    I don't think Fishing would be so bad in MMO's if

    A: It didn't take so damn long
    B: You had some mini-game to catch them so it's atleast partly entertaining

    :D

    Well, some people like to fish in mmo's so hell why not give it to them. The way i look at it, while some people are off doing that, there is more things I can go kill. If they add fishing to a game and you don't think its fun, then don't fish. Simple answer :p

    No fishing = less fun. I can't see how they could call fishing not fun. They're underestimating what drives people who fish.

    SWTOR suffered because of no minigames in the cantatas.
    I always wished there was card games or something.

    Minigames and fishing are important in MMOs. I don't want to always kill kill kill. Sometimes I want to catch a three eyed yellow striped bluegill. While listening to Pandora radio.

    Hmmm
