    My last post about raising fishing prices pushed the administrators over the edge to double fishing prices. However, there is still work to be done. Us fishermen and fisherwomen should be able to make a decent amount doing what we love, especially those of us who own star rods. Star rods still don't make very much when compared to other star tools. Like last time, there will be a poll. This time, we are voting to raise fishing prices by a multiplier of 3x as a start. Thank you, please comment and vote!

    Reasons for the Increase:
    -Star Rods are relatively useless compared to other star tools
    -Fishing, unlike farming, requires constant thought. You don't just hold down a button, and AFK fishers aren't allowed on the server.
    -Fishing is not even really a part of ECC, since it pays far less than other occupations.

    I voted no;

    fishing prices are systematically bad, a 1.5x increase won't be enough to make them good. It's honestly so little a change it's not worth doing.

    Enabling Salvage on McMMO will also help narrow the gap and make it worthwhile to fish.

    Well, I think 3x would make fishing op. We don't want that. I think 1.5x would be ideal. I mean, fishing is not even that worse than mining/farming nowadays
