Why not 100 fish at a time, minimum 5 seems a little low.

 

Seriously guys, there are some mechanics that are intended. Some stuff has to be gathered manually, and it's a GOOD thing that you still need fishboat to catch some harpoon fish, and have a little risk in that.

It's beyond dumb that you cant use a sailboat, which is basically an upgraded version of the fishing boat, to do the same kind of deep sea fishing.  So you probably haven't played Monster Hunter to understand what I'm referring to but they had a similar type of harpoon fishing thing but instead you cast out a net and it would randomly catch like 5-7 fish or something... seeing as harpooning becomes available at professional 5 or whatever.  

Is it really that much to ask for to change the system a bit so its better than regular fishing?  If not then how about we make harpoon/net fishing a master 15 thing and call it good so high level fishers have something to work toward.  Harpooning as it stands right now is pointless, fun but really pointless, and the fact that it cant be used on a sailboat is just like mind blowing... like so much so that I just think its an oversight is all.  There is simply no way it cant be an intended mechanic.

I get your point, but it's a trade ship and not a fishing ship. 

Berzerker can't chop wood with his axe, that's also fine. Some of you would go hysterical about it I guess.

I guess I'm the only one who likes actually a bit of challenge in games, the danger going out in open ocean with a fishing boat to do some harpooning, was pretty nice. While you pussies prefer to be unkillable, and want "at least 5 fish in one go".

No, we just want progresion to lead to greater rewards. That's how games work. If i drive out into the dangerous vast ocean I want it to be more profitable and productive than driving twenty feet off the dock.

If I spend a whole month logging and gathering supplies to build a new boat that takes me over two weeks to build I want it to be usable for the things I enjoy doing. Who are you hurting by letting people harpoon off these boats?

Na we just prefer it to make sense...  why not make harpoons equipable on the boat and develop the system further?  

And dude really...  I mean either add to the discussion in a way that contributes something or GTFO you turd.  SMH...  challenge and harpooning being uttered in the same sentence...

Why use a harpoon when you can shoot things with cannons?! Who needs fish in one piece when you can have them in many?!

Seriously though, I'll make sure we get that looked into guys.

yes, exactly, having tin ore in the boat inventory and shooting cannonballs should transform the tin into these :

 Rex be happy. Port Ratt has no dog yumyum on sale.

since when is harpooning "challenging" or any "danger" involved ? 
you just set the autopath to the edge of juur sea then move a meter into margoria sea and start harpooning for the weekly 
no danger, no challenge it only takes longer to get to the point and the harpooning itself takes roughly 30 sec per fish

atleast let us harpoon the sailboat like in archeage to tow the fish boat there xD

If it stays this way, harpoon fishing might as well be taken out of the game.

Doubt anyone would miss it. Fvck harpoon fishing.

Well, some of us have to Travel to the next Margoria Sea for our master level target Bigeye Tuna. That weekly quest is different depending on what fishing level you are.

All the same, I don't care about the quest as much as I do the basic functionality of the boat.

If this was going to be a ship intended for trade only they should have released a second ship intended for fishing. Less weight and more inventory.

Regular fishing is possible from this ship, so why not harpooning? It doesn't make sense to make the one possible and exclude the other. If there is a reason for this choice, I would like to know what it is.

Thank you!

I just got my sail boat and was very disappointed to see you can't harpoon with it. Getting to the central Margoria area for Yellowfin Tuna. is a pain in the butt on the fishing boat (especially after using the sail boat) and so much so I probably won't bother with the weekly fishing quest.

Another idea is just move the Yellowfin Tuna drops to a closer area (either Margoria South or Margoria North) or not require harpoon and put in regular fishing loot table like Marlin and Greater Amberjack (which I'm sure you already know the quest text is wrong "Chinese Mackerel").

Maybe not so easy. Just put this harpoon usable on this damn sailboat! So painfull to switch each time seriously!
