    Stats at beginning: Level 5 (or 6) Fishing McMMO.

    Stats at end: Level 8 Fishing McMMO.

    Biome fished in: Ocean

    Rod Used: Max Rod

    Place of fishing:
    [​IMG]

    Outcome:
    73 Fish- $1460
    32 Salmon- $960
    15 Pufferfish- $600
    2 Clownfish- $100

    Profit: $3120 ECD

    EXP Gained: 435

    EXP Profit: ~460

    Overall Profit: $3580 ECD

    Conclusion:
    Fishing makes decent money for starter McMMO levels. I have to go explore with melon farming and pumpkin farming to see if this is the best way to start making decent cash in ECC.
    (I also assume that if a builder rented a star rod, they would end up with the same stats as me.)

    Note:
    I'm surprised I didn't get bored, if you listen to music/podcast/youtube video on another device, time can fly by.

    Thanks for the statistics @lambielove !
    I will pay for 1 hour of rental for a star rod from @Ladyvamptress if she agrees so that you can see what difference that would make for you as long as you again share your results.

    You’re such a sweet and helpful person. <3. I have never denied Lambie the ability to rent from me. Obviously she needs pyro+ to rent the Eff7, but everything else she just needs to be mayor+ (which she is). She’s never asked tho, I assumed she didn’t want to rent star tools from people. She’s paid for me to dig her tunnels in mining a few times and seemed happy with doing that. I know some people don’t want to rent star tools due to the risk of breaking them. I’ve actually had 3 tools broken in about 1 month and it does put a lot of stress and strain on the renter who is trying to replace the tool. However, if she wants to rent a star rod, I certainly can set her up. :)

    I thought I made an application to rent a star rod. I assumed you denied me because you didn’t respond. xD
    Edit: Turns out I didn’t, misunderstanding on my part. I’ve been looking for you in game but I guess I just didn’t see you! I will talk to you when I see you online. :)
    I mostly did the max rod because I assumed that builder (aka people of my MCMMO) would be starting out and maybe only able to rent a star rod. Love you both.

    so using the average of about what seems to be 15k an hour. A person would spend 5k renting it for an hour. then make triple that back. so its about 10 +/- 3K an hour using a rented rod.
    This doesnt really seem to be that good unless you have your own star rod. As of right now, all other star tools make at least 15k an hour. So if you're really into fishing, the recommended route would be to rent out another star tool (melon sword, eff7, eff10) and save money to getting yourself a rod.
    Does this sound about right?
    And what are the prices for a star rod rn?

    Without taking EXP in to account the average ECD intake is averaging at 11.5k. Not everyone sells EXP, since it has other uses, like for the Mending enchant, to make other max tools for sale, to combine or name things in an anvil... or even to save up for the EXP collector medal.

    Adding EXP to the total, even at a rate of $1/orb, it can take the average ECD intake to more like 20k, just going by strong's results alone.
