Yeah I'm Professional on fishing, processing, and gathering; and I found it a little OP that fishing takes no energy. lmao  Also you don't have to worry about the market crashing or inflation since you just trade it to npcs.

This could be useful. I've not leveled a single lifeskill to a relevant level yet, and I've been debating starting since I've been way too busy to grind lately. My funds are slowly dwindling from idling..

Tried out hunting today, pretty sure I'm gonna take that up at least. Fishing has never made me more than 80k in a single go, and I can make that much in a fraction of the time so...not sure about it. 

Processing I haven't done yet. Sounds interesting. Hope this poll gets a bit more voting.

Aren't hotspots out of safe zones? I've not been to one yet. In fact I haven't left a coastline at all yet >_>. Did not know you could make millions afk though.

 

But, what's your fishing level? Something absurdly high?

there are a couple of them on the shorelines too recently. Thermian cliff shore was a hotspot a while back, altinova coast was one too.
You dont need absurdly high level fishing to fish at hotspots. i used to fish at thermian cliff from beginner 5 to skilled 5 using thick fishing rod. made 1.5 mill/hour active fishing with 56 inventory slots and selling at altinova/omar lava cave

1 bil from fishing my ass.

 

Here is the thing with fishing.

1. You need travel far away to get abundant spot. (20min waste time just on that + selling)

2. You eather escape to town or go with ship to Ilya which again takes time

3. In 2 hour your bags are totally full and I bought plenty bagspace

 

 

It was complete garbage compared processing but it could be better these days since market is dead.

 

What comes for farming it's insanely boring. It's decent for passive professions unless you're truly masochist.

 

Alchemy is garbage. You lose more cash than gain making alchemy stones. Elixirs are super cheap to sell. And gems are dying like everything rest in market.

 

Cooking is decent. They always sell. Problem is milk/dough/pork which you constantly need.

Most of gold spots are either full of boats or at least someone is fishing there so you don't need your own boat (though if you plan to go afk you risk getting carried away :D )

Processing is the most valuable to level up. Gathering I'd say second place.

Both these life skills have unlock levels, so need a certain rank to make or gather the valuable stuff. You also get substantially more items the higher levels you reach. 

Cooking/alchemy makes almost no money at all atm. Maybe gets better in future updates?

Farming and training results seems more about rng than actual life skill level lol.

Hunting, or the full version of it, isn't really in-game yet.

Fishing is lucrative, but no need to actively work for a high fishing skill to make afk money from it. Enough to be skilled for a steel rod and knowing a hot spot.

No clue about high level trading.

Considering I can easily make 4-20m a day with cooking, I will go with that lol
Honestly mix it up, do processing and cooking, then for afk do fishing. Keeps its easy.
Process while you stock pile items for cooking. Then spend a day cooking and make an easy 12ishm every day for a few days then go back to processing.

Take water for instance. I can generally but river water for 1200.

Turn it into purified water and wait until the price is over 2k. AH will take 35%

Due to my processing skill I will produce 3-4 purified water per river water and have maybe a 60% chance of spending energy to do so. 

So I'm taking 1200 and turning it into about 4550. I also get gold along the way. Average work day sleeping in bed and pressing a button on breaks and lunches I generally make 3-4 mil. 

Water is a standard but it isn't my best market

Trading is completely useless.    Incredibly slow income, even at Master level, when compared to alchemy, processing, fishing.

They need to severely increase trading profits.

Fishing is not needed to level hard, as long as you fish in hot spot you can be lowbie and still make profit.

Unlike other skills who are actually worth leveling.
