Afk-fisher pk

15 posts in this topic

Posted

I was just wondering how bad the pking of afk-fishers were. Does it happen often?

Mainly asking because I'm thinking of making a fishing alt if needed.

I have a Lv52 sorc that I used to use for fishing way back in the day. It has the bag space expanded through pearl shop and has high fishing skill. However, if it is needed, I'm willing to invest into a whole new character just for fishing and keep the character below Lv50 so it can't get pked.

You can be PKed only if you fish outside of the safe zone.

From my experience this kind of PK is almost non existend.

Very rare that PK happens while fishing, even in the sea, too much hassle for PK'ers to go out in a boat looking for people to PK as they just waste their own time and Karma doing so.

Person fishing comes back, reclaims boat because they didn't use the storage on it, repairs for a nominal fee, sells fish they got, carries on. the only person wasting their time is the PK'er.

Never ran into it, but then again I stay far away from Pirate Island, that's the hotspot for Boat smashers and PK rambos.

There's a lot of good fishing water that has low traffic and as a result tends to have a high yield of Fishing School hotspots, tend to always get one fishing school per trip out, going to keep quiet where I go in case PK'ers get the idea to start looking there =p

Newp, Ive had people jump on my boat though and come fishing with me completely at random, it was kinda cool. PK trolls don't tend to want to go out in the sea because they might run into someone whom is ready for them and sinks their boat.

It's a long way back to dry land from the middle of the sea.

Just do it in a safe zone if you're afk fishing. If you go afk in an unsafe area and get killed its on you, regardless of what you are/were doing

I don't know how the current situation is, but back in times where those fishing hotspots existed, I encountered some afk fisher pk'ers. I've always wondered why such pathetic people exist who don't have anything better to do with their time as to run around and pk innocent afk fishers. Actually, I've met one who had his own "fisher pk routes", which he ran along and killed all people, even the non afk ones like myself. That's the moment you loose hope in this humanity and ask yourself WHY? But then I thought of alcohol and cigarettes during pregnancy actually IS a thing nowadays, which explains a lot. Just fish at safe spots to don't get bothered by this scum.

Used to be a very profitable profession web static hotspots existed outside safe zones. Roll up on a huge mass of fishers in the ocean. Kill them all or drown them, collect the fallen fish, go to another channel and repeat. It was the easiest way to make money.

With the mobile hot spots, it's not worth it

People still occasionally PK afk fishers. It happens to people I know regularly enough to disrupt their earnings. Some I know never have issues with it, but it seems they fish in areas that are not overly obvious. So YMMV.

AFK fishing with an alt isnt a bad idea though.

Villain detected. :D

My afk fishing pk is largely one player getting bitten by the mayhem bug and going on a spree. It was pretty rare.

To the OP, can't really argue against making an alt unless you gotta spend money for a slot. :S
