Recently I made a new character for some variety and wanted to try my hand at fishing and only fishing. I want it to become my main source of income and was wondering what everyone's take on that is. The only thing that worries me a bit is repairing, having no high level experience myself how high do regular NPC costs go? the fact that it's only to 75% is also a bit sad.
No linkshell atm either, typing this out is actually making me rethink the whole thing ha ha.
You actually start to make ok money on leves when you can do the 10+ ones, and if you make sure to wait to teleport till someone shouts offering money - you would do okay. Your best money is going to come from alchemists. Spearfishing will net you the best items for cash imo. Try to get items needed to fix your equipment and offer crafters money to do 100% fix. Your gear actually won't degrade super fast.
Dart frogs = 28+ alchemy item used to make debuff/medicine pots (spearfishing)
brass loach = gelatin ingredient (but not worth a lot, probably not worth keeping)
malm kelp = decent alchemist grind item for 13-17 (with sea sand)
all fish glue ingredients will probably sell pretty well.
Scorpions = 22+ alchemy item used to make debuff/medicine pots (spearfishing)
helmet crab = 20+ alchemy used to make ironhide ungent - pot that gives a protect buff (spearfishing)
tarantula = 20+ alchemy poison pots/remedies (spearfishing)
blindfish = 20+ alchemy - blind pots/remedies (rod fishing in cassie hollow)
I suggest if you get this stuff that you afk bazaar in the alchy guild. Selling shards should also net you decent money - just set all your elements into earth or wind.
