We are focusing on just the crafting changes, but you can find the full list of all the Release 60 changes at https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/?p=101466
New Fishing Expedition Scene - boats in various coastal cities (Aerie, Ardoris, Kingsport, Mud and Port Graff) will take players to this new tropical scene completely dedicated to fishing.
Fishing Holes in Snowy Mountains POT Templates - Player-Owned Towns with Snowy Mountains biomes now have fishing holes in a new section along one edge of the area.
Rotating POT Fishing Bonus - each day, two randomly selected Player-Owned Towns will receive a fishing bonus. Many fishing merchants, all Town Criers, and a mix of other NPCs will now talk about “rumors” when asked, and sometimes the rumor will tell which towns are currently offering the fishing bonus.
Fishing while Sitting - players can now fish while sitting
Pacu - a new fish was added. Rumors abound where it can be found.
New Fishing Food Recipes
In Release 59 over 25 new fish were added. In Release 60, the team has added cooking recipes for the common and uncommon varieties of those fish.
Increased Salvage Rates for Grandmasters
Salvage rate for Grandmasters in Salvage have been increased. Pattern salvage rates have been increased by over 6 times while Component salvage rates were increased by 3 times.
More Player-Made Items in Loot
The rate at which player-made items sold to merchants appear in low-level supply bundles has been increased by over 100 times.
Fully Encumbered Blocks Loot/Trade
Characters cannot gain items via loot or trade if doing so would cause them to exceed the weight limit of 3x their base capacity. “Loot” includes items from corpses, adventure chests, resource nodes (excluding agriculture), fishing, and world items. Making this change fixes numerous bugs and exploits. Players who are already exceeding this amount will still be able to move but not pick up any new items until they get under the 3x cap. NOTE: These new rules do NOT limit crafting.
Butchery - Fish can now be processed using Butchery to extract fish fillets for cooking from Uncommon trophy fish. We will be adding these for Rare fish in R61.
Cooking (Recipes on cooking merchants) - Fried Catfish, Fried Carp, Baked Cod, Broiled Mackerel, Sautéed Sunfish, Lemon Garlic Tilapia, Tuna Steak, Baked Pacu.
