Why wouldn't it be? it's not in a safe zone..

Anyone outside a safe zone is free to be killed under the circumstances of karma penalty or GvG status.

Also, it makes sense because trade items (including fish) have a chance to be dropped on death.

so pretty much is ok and normal to go rampage and kill every fisher from the deepsea (not safe zone considered) and keep farming them to give up in afk fishing? once his karma gets to 0, will that karma be recovered Like energy? or does that can even hurt his guild's karma?

When you venture out of safe zones, you risk getting pked and griefed on, thats that.

You don't need a screenshot, he's actually streaming on Twitch while he does it.

Of course its okay.

but if you do it so much to the point everyone recognizes you,

the community will organize and hunt you down. Happened before

Yes, not nice but perfectly legal. It is a nice opportunity to start a guild war or to turn red. Now you only need to think what benefit it brings to you, as the number of fishers on a hotspot makes no difference on how fast fish are being caught.

 

Afk fishers never complain in the channel chat, so there is no fun in that :P

Don't afk outside of a safezone and you won't have a chance to be PK'd outside of a safezone.  It's the part that makes that area not a safe zone.

It is just a matter of time before guilds will claim these hotspots. Especially when they can't get a castle or a node. Enjoy the hotspots while they last :)

The guy is stealing AFK fishers fish, perfectly legitimate way to make some cash, plus they are easy targets...  ----- move?  Yes, against the rules?  Absolutely not.

I get profits from it.

I get people upset about it.

Running over people for my own amusement is what makes open world pvp games fun. The rage, the anger..the calling of names. My sadist nature loves it.

im not raging, sorry. i dont care getting afk killed, i dont care getting killed grinding. But still killing afk people is just entertainment for 12 year old kidds, that cant prove other than that how cool they are.

I don't mind being called a 12 year old. I also never said you was the one raging. I just love reading in the channel the tears I get for the public service I do.

you apparently dont understand what a "combat zone" is. 

so pretty much is ok and normal to go rampage and kill every fisher from the deepsea (not safe zone considered) and keep farming them to give up in afk fishing? once his karma gets to 0, will that karma be recovered Like energy? or does that can even hurt his guild's karma?

one you clearly know nothing about he game lol there is no guild karma(anymore), when karma gets to below zero he is red and anyone can kill him anywhere(even safe zones) karma maxes out at -1million karma 

the only way you can gain karma is last hitting mobs. going from -1mil to 0 karma takes hours(6-15 depending on gear/hardcoreness)

 

If you go afk in a pvp zone expect to be killed or your just dumb.

 

also yes i went to -1mil karma killing afk fishers in velia hotspot. trying to become non red sucked as you were atatcked non stop and couldnt defend yourself, i lost 4 enchants(from pve deaths), took me days to get back to 0 karma . . . . . .but was totally worth it xD
