Fishing currently gives roughly 600k-1.2m an hour. 1.2m that is if you can find yourself an abundant gold spot and have a large inventory. Now recently, grinding was made even better. Why exactly? Grinding now gives around 4m an hour. AFK fishing gets you maybe 800k overnight, which is only when you do it for around 8+ hours. This can literally be done in 10 mins of grinding.

I vote for the exchange items to be reduced to their original amount each, cause that makes it at least somewhat more reasonable. Or just increase fish prices.

It's legit. Grinding has gotten almost twice as good since yesterday's patch. It's ridiculous.

You must be joking. Most probably you are just trolling.

I had a talk with my friends yesterday, and their concern was that fishing is so good that it's taking the fun away for them. They have been playing only for 2 weeks now, still deciding if they will like the game long term or not, and fishing is a big concern for them. Since they discovered it, they just don't see any reason to do anything else (except for leveling ofc). They just fish and buy everything. Efficient, but no fun at all

EDIT: In my opinion, fishing needs a small nerf and the rest of the professions a big buff. Grinding is about right.

As it should be? Grinding requires actual effort while fishing just requires you to cast your rod and go do something else while making bank.

Yes that is the problem. They force you to grind by increasing the gap of money earned per hour and thus making fishing a waste of time. And this change to exchange prices also causes inflation, because the stream of money flowing into the game increased a lot.

This exactly. Why should I be forced to grind if I ever want to get some decent gear. Fishing is a huge part of this game and we'll even get an entire underwater world along with sailing in the future. Might wanna encourage players to actually fish instead of solely grinding. They obviously aren't adding that content because everyone hates fishing so much, don't you think? In Korea you can buy rods in the cash shop that give you Coelacanth's every few fish. That's why other fish prices are so extremely low. We however, don't have, and will likely not ever get that rod. So we're stuck with a mere 20k per gold base price, and 6k per blue.

Nerf fishing! This is additional game element only. AFK fishing is too big economy buff. "normal fishing" give you too big income. Other energy spending actions have very low silver/energy income.  +fish knowledge raises maximum energy. This "free" element has too big reward.

The poll is nonsesne.

Are you seriously out of your mind? A small nerf? Grinding is superior BY FAR in literally every way. The pure silver an hour is already 2-3 times as much, and along with that you get rare drops, blackstones and trade-in items. Either your friends don't know how to grind, or you're a big troll.

sorry but grinding is meant to be king, and grinding is not #1 money making way if you know what you're doing with a worker empire

+grinding information is incorrect. How can you farm 4 million silver/hours? You can do it in some hours, but this is random. +others will farm same spots. You can't generate this income in all time. +grinding is more dangerous. Carebear fishing has near 0 chance to die in this action. If you grind/farm "premium" areas you will be killed by others many times or you have to play PvP more.

Same goes with fishing, except instead of dying you get an exhausted spot. If you want to make money with fishing you need a gold spot preferably. Finding one of those abundant costs way, way more effort than finding a good grinding spot. Aside of that, I've only been pk'ed twice so far, and I solely grinded the first 5 weeks.

lol. i think this has gotta be a joke post? if not i guess the op has a real different idea of what being a hero in a fantasy game is all about than i do. as one poster mentioned, and i agree with, it has been a real concern to me that fishing has been the best way to make money. 

if i am playing a fantasy game and sort of imagining myself as the hero, i want to be spending as much time as possible fighting monsters. ok i guess in this game at certain point monsters and other players.

this whole thing where i realized the fastest way to gear up was fishing made me very sad. i am really glad to hear about this change in the game.

Do you have screenshots of that rod, or even the name? Never heard of such a rod. I know that at some point Golden fishing rod was giving an abnormally high amount of coels but it got nerfed.

Finding "good" grinding spot is easy. Farming in this area is not so easy. Zergs will swarm the area and you can't kill monsters, or serialkiller a$$h*les will attack your back in "P2W hiding suit". What will fishes do? They will eat your fishing rod and your boat? Or attack you and ----- your perfect body? Nope. You cry because your overpayed low risk hobby is not the highest income generator all time. Pathetic.

You obviously don't know how to play this game if fishing is what you think makes the most money. You're a joke.
