I was wondering if this is acceptable? I would like to see more people in general on the boat but also, more workers as well. Personally dont care if you freeload as long as you stay up top.





I am sure some of you know about this, so save those kind of comments of "old news", please.





You can NOT alch on the trawler. Sucks doesn't it? Well, you can use humidify for the same, cheaper exp. But, since you can't alch people believe why should you be able to cast this spell? is this acceptable? is it a bug in your guy's opinion? should jagex update the trawler to exclude this spell. It does nothing to help us get more fish or anything.







The fishing trawler runs on world 116 almost constantly between 9am EST and Midnight EST it runs pretty regularly and rarely sinks. You can get a considerable amount of fish from it.





Humidify is apparently faster, however I am not sure of this for a fact. But it seems so. The runes are cheaper and even with a steam staff its automatically just astrals.







So anyway, by combining the two, after 76 fishing you are most likely going to profit off of this method of humidifying while doing the trawler. This is frowned upon as it is "freeloading" which some consider bug abuse and against the spirit of the game its self.











Now the real tip, with the hotkeys (F4 & F7) this spell can be casted quickly, you have to empty your vessel however. With the boat running usually 1k catch each trip i typically get 14 manta ray, its no 91 RC or anything but, it still makes $. And with the PVP update coming manta rays have been going up in price and will probably be in demand when the update is then released. If you were to do humidify at the trawler until the PVP update and you plan on doing PVP your self, now you have a considerably higher magic level and some nice fish.









trivial facts












also, if your going to do this, please go to the top of the boat and bring ONE single rope just in case everyone runs out of rope. That way we ALL get more fish, and ropes are only like 20GP ea.



and again this is a discussion involved on if it is OKAY OR NOT that is why i decided to explain it some people aren't questioning the details. But of course I wont deny anyone an answer.

I've never really been drawn into the minigame. I'll have to try it sometime. I guess it could do with a bit more appeal :)

yes, the themed world has brought it to a new life. To the point where substantial living could be made off of the minigame.





except, the spells kind of make it a multi tasking that is heavily disliked by players

but, do you think its fair for people to do nothing and get fish? I agree, its good. But it might be like alchign in castle wars.





Do you guys think it really should be removed or have a helping system like PC has a zeal system?







btw, 1 bucket for every player does a world of difference.

Well the initial question was whether or not this was morally wrong, aye? regarding that, yes it is in my opinion, but I suppose it would be a step above the other freeloaders because you are creating nice little storm clouds to entertain the fishers.

This is the reason why many players hate trawler fishing. The game would be much improved by a zeal function.

at least they fixed it so it no longer almost instantaneously closes any windwos you open. Such as skill menu's and world map, trade screen... REPORT ABUSE. Now people can get reported on the trawler 100 times easier.

You don't see many people yelling at bolt fletchers there, so why should this be wrong to them?

+1, the KB never said we cant do that, and It's not bug abuse in the way I see it, Its as much bug abuse as Flag Holding, and by that I mean, sucks for the rest of the people, takes the fun out of a game (If overdone), and theres nothing to stop it.

It's a pretty smart idea, but it bugs me when people do it.. I guess if they stay out of the way, its not so bad though..

I'm half and half on this issue. There's so many people on those boats that there isn't a lot for the individual to do. But those who are playing the game are at least making an effort to do so, not sitting around and casting spells.



Tbh, there's no reason to use magic in that game. I don't know why casting spells is even allowed. You should get a message along the lines of, "The swaying of the boat breaks your concentration!" whenever you cast a spell. --'

There's nothing morally wrong about it. If others don't like you training your Skills as efficiently as possible, that's tough. Do what you have to to succeed, and sometimes just tone out the other people.



(Is Barraging Rock Lobsters immoral because you train faster than others? No. Is it wrong? No. Is it efficient if you have the money to spend? Yes. So, why not exploit it while it lasts?)

I'm not a huge fan of other people sitting around and profiting from my hard work. I mean seriously go train mage somewhere else that isn't just taking advantage of others hard work.

How does it work?

Humidify fills all vials or w/e so you gotta empty them?
