Topic Wanna make some gold? Hiring fishermen!
That's right, you can get paid to raise your fishing skill!
How does it work?
1. Whisper Caffeen, Earra, Shaguar, or Ochocinco for an invite to <Somnifacient>
2. Fish from any Fishing pool/node/school. (For instance, "Firefin Snapper School".) This can be done at level 1 with 1 fishing skill, so anyone can do it.
3. Whisper me or Earra, or send me an ingame mail telling me how many pools you fished from. I'll pay you 2 gold for every cast you made. You can even keep what you caught!
If you catch 1000 or more, I'll throw in a bonus 500 gold on top of that.
This is a great way for lower level players to make money, since you can make hundreds of gold per hour, but anyone is welcome to participate. (If you're going to raise your fishing skill anyway, why not get paid for it?)
I really like your idea. We spent a bunch of time fishing (specifically Cellee, who swore she would not fish again) trying to get our Seafood Feasts. I know that sometimes I like to kill time by fishing...but to profit...awesome!
Good luck with your fishing ventures.
