The point of the elemental beads reference was to show that all crafts are dependant on another craft, especially at higher skill levels. Fishing is no exception. Rods break, woodworker or alchemist fixes.
No, they're not. I leveled bonecraft to 100 without ever
needing to level another craft to 60. And you're telling me that because skills use some
items to craft some
things that it's okay for fishing to require a skill ABOVE
60? Your analogy is horribly flawed when related fishing to other crafts, a more proper one was already stated in the thread. "Rods are like crystals. Bait, place, level, and sometimes time are the ingredients. It'd be like removing single crystals from monsters, and needing to level alchemy to 70 to turn clusters into crystals before you can level something else."
Actually, it would be more like Thief Knife reward being given as a moogle quest when your THF hits the proper level.
No, it would be like having to kill tonberries for a pop item and then killing Sozu for the drop.
If leveling woodworking is not an option, WHM to 38 and BLM to 17 for Teleport-Altep and Warp is all you need to fix a rod asap. Provided you have the ancient lumber and light crystals, you can get done with it before the next ferry leaves from Selbina or Mhaura.
And Teleport-Altep does not require a trip to Jeuno.
And here you fail again. When my rod breaks, I have to warp, I then have to either a. change jobs in my mog house and telepo-altepa or b. outpost warp to altepa, then I have to run to rabao, then after I fix my rod I have to warp again, and then I have to outpost warp back to cape terrigan, and then I have to run through kuftal again to get to my fishing spot. It takes way too long. And then for liks and gugus, sure; it doesn't take as long- but do you have any idea how often your lu shangs is going to need to be repaired? You might as well buy another @#%^ing account and level woodworking on it.
Again, if your Lu is breaking and you don't have a means of fixing it on the spot, it means you do not know how to avoid Lu breakers. That's your problem, not the game's. Since the fishing update, every single Lu breaker can be identified and avoided before reeling it in.
No, it is not "our problem". It means your fishing something that breaks the rod, which surprise; includes liks and gugus. It also includes the only fish that I would like to catch to make money.
Consumable, breakable, same @#%^ing thing. Arguing semantics isn't going to help your cause.
He's not the one arguing semantics, you are.
If you want to argue that synthing makes the Ice Bead disappear for good, and thus it is consumable, then Fyn can argue the same thing for Lu Shang's Rod. If you try to fix it when the boat docks, it's gone for good.
No. That's called being a stubborn twat. Lu shangs never
disappear unless you glitch the game. Ice beads are designed
to disappear when you craft with them.
It's sad that you can't comprehend what arguing semantics really is.
It's sad that not only do you not understand what arguing semantics are, but that once again you're going to stalemate a logical proposition by not comprehending anything that's going on and telling people that they're doing something they're not.
Also, to add on to your ridiculous slippery slope argument, I propose it's stupid for us to let homosexuals marry, because they we have to allow humans marry animals, who knows where it will end!? Edited, Jan 7th 2010 12:08am by Deadgye
