Lucky casting no more footware junk or no names

Acknowledgment and accountability go a long way...

    That sounds great, fishermen need some love and something to get others interested.  The shoe thing is a little thing to the some but a big thing to all of us that get them continually.  The Mastery sounds terrific.

    No longer fishing up footwear could be a Passive bonus. So could less chance of losing traps.
    Active Mastery abilities could be an ability that makes sea creatures (Water Elementals/Sea Serpents/Deep Sea Serpents/Krakens) ignore you while channeling it. Call it "Sea Calmer".
    The other active Mastery ability could be the ability to either summon a Greater Water Elemental to defend you, or charm/summon a Kraken. Call it "Siren's Call".

    yes please

  • Maybe have Fishing Mastery buff Cannon damage as well, especially against foes like Plunder Beacons, Osiredon, Charybdis, and his Giant Tentacles.

    I have 2 Legendary fishermen and 4 GM fishermen.  At this skill level I should NOT be catching shoes and boots etc. Lobster pots, at this level I should NOT be catching worthless lobsters and crabs. 

      If a player needs to catch plain crustaceans then they should keep skill below GM

    there should be a reward for working this skill up to a few beyond GM

    I think the no name regular crabs / lobsters should be treated like the no name regular fish you buy from a fisher NPC; if you have low skill you would get them and you could buy from the NPC as well. 

    I'm thinking maybe the fishing mastery should help with bait strength? I don't know if that would be a waste or not given I've heard mixed reviews while using the fisher suit and bait but assuming bait works the way it should; I think that maybe for every 5 points of fishing you have over 90 would be +7% to bait so at 120 that would be +42% to fishing bait and it would stack with the fishing suit for a total of 92% bait strength.
