*digs out thread*

That formula doesn't make sense, gives values >100%...

After trying several ways to modify it, the most plausible answer to me is that the formulat simply got "stretched" by 20%, that would give:

int32 chance = SkillValue < 90 ? 100 : 3000/(SkillValue-60);

another problem related to fishing, from a well know wiki:

As of 3.1, there is no longer a minimum skill requirement to fish in any zone, and all casts will catch something and award a chance for a skill-up. However, if your skill level is too low for a zone, you will catch mostly vendor trash items. The skill level required to guarantee "no junk" catches is equivalent to the old "no get away" level.

while in actual version we still got:

DEBUG_LOG("Fishing check (skill: %i zone min skill: %i chance %i roll: %i",skill,zone_skill,chance,roll);

if (skill >= zone_skill && chance >= roll)

{

.

.

//fish catched

player->UpdateFishingSkill();

This was fixed in [10989].

The original fishing skillup formula was still not changed though

One interesting thing is the Fishing skill in the classic zones (1.12) still follows the same chance to catch a particular species of fish by time of day and season as in original retail.

No matter where you fish, and regardless of your fishing skill, you will at least catch "junk". By my experience, it required more junk catches to gain a skill point than catching fish rewarded, especially if the waters being fished were way beyond my skill. I'm not sure if there's been an exact formula worked out for that and posted at El's Anglin' Guide, but his guide is the chief authority on Fishing and usually has the most accurate and current information.
