Non-Afk Fishing Vs Trading vs Hunting


6 posts in this topic

Posted

Hey Everyone,

I was thinking of taking a break from the constant grind and pick up a life skill. Now that hunting has been introduced into the game. Which alternate profession would be the most profitable in the long run? I don't mind having to work to eventually turn a profit. But i'd like to do something where I can watch Netflix and somewhat pay attention to what's going on in the game. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Thank you

Fishing annihilates trading and hunting, with two exceptions:

  1. If you're "trading" by crafting special crates, transporting them across the world and selling them, you'll do well. That, of course, requires a bunch of infrastructure support and the like. Buy/sell Trade Manager trading will get you *maybe* 500k per hour, unless you're lucky (or smuggling).
  2. Hunting drops black shards. If you're lucky, one kill can be worth two hours of active hotspot fishing.

The only croc I've hunted was one in a quest line that started with shooting beehives in the Belenos Forest node.

I would say if you only think about profit, pick gathering! If you think about having fun at the same time fishing/hunting will give you that (IMO). Good income but not nearly the income of gathering.

The Crocodiles are there, in the part of the water next to North Kaia Ferry. Unfortunately there seems to be 3 spawns in the lake and the respawn time seems to be about an hour.

Kill credit seems to go to the hunter who did the most damage, so the crocodiles can give decent XP and Crocodile meat, I've also dropped a bares necklace, blue percision crystals and one shard crystal shard so far. I think ive killed maybe 10 total.
