How hard realistically would it be for you to be able to store feathers or bait in the same container you were carrying ammo?


The reason it doesnt make sense is a valid point.

I mean if they allowed this whats next?

I just don't see this as ammo so doesn't belong in slot.


Well if you really want to get technical bolts and arrows and a mithril grapple aren't ammo either by definition. Nothing that goes in the ammo slot makes sense.

Merriam-Webster's definition of Ammuntion.

Definition of ammunition

1a : the projectiles with their fuses, propelling charges, or primers fired from guns
b : cartridges
c : explosive military items (such as grenades or bombs)
2 : material for use in attacking or defending a position ammunition for the defense lawyers

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ammunition

None of it is actually ammunition. But since it's a game (so who cares about the technical details) and we are using a loose definition of ammunition; arrows are bow ammo, bolts are crossbow ammo, and bait is fishing rod ammo.

How are feathers/bait considered ammo?

Its not like you load them into the rod like you do for x-bows or anything else you mentioned.

Once again drawing at straws I see.

But you do load bait and feathers before you use a fishing pole... ?

Alright so if "it doesn't make sense" is going to be the core of your arguement lets go ahead and remove ability to equip the following;

Ammunition slot items;

Ancient blessing
Guam tar
Harralander tar
Holy blessing
Honourable blessing
Marrentill tar
Mith grapple
Peaceful blessing
Tarromin tar
Unholy blessing
War blessing

None of these items are even closely related to ammuntion.

Weapon slot items;

Ale of the gods
Ancient gorilla greegree
Arceuus banner
Assorted flowers
Any banner made on a POH easel
Bearded gorilla greegree
Birthday balloons
...

None of these items are weapons.

I could keep on going but honestly at this point I think you are just committed to not liking this idea. Which is fine, you are entitled to your opinion, but to say that this idea doesn't make sense simply because it's called an ammo slot (when again, I've already pointed out literally nothing that goes into that slot is actually ammo) is just ridiculous.

"I don't like it because I don't think people need an extra inventory space when fishing"

That would be a valid arguement, and it's pretty much the only logical reason I could see for not liking this idea.

Nope they just sit in inventory while you fish.

They never touch the pole.


How logically in your mind is the bait coming into play if your character isn't putting bait on the fishing rod? It gets used up once you catch the fish because otherwise you could just reel it in and still have the bait/feather.

Ok ok... so lets go back to strictly in game mechanics again (even though you were the one to start pulling up real life definitions to prove your point) just so you can try to sound right. Well guess what buddy? You don't load bolts before you shoot them in game either LOL. They just pop out of your ammo slot once you shoot. At no point does you're character take the time to load a bolt (and the arrows just pops out of thin air aswell) so GTFO of here with that. You're the one pulling at straws here. You can't just make up you're own definition of ammunition and have that be the reason it doesn't make sense that's insanity lol. NONE OF IT IS ACTUALLY AMMUNITION. That's my point. If bolts and arrows (which again, are NOT ammunition by definition) can be considered ammunition in this game, then why not bait and feathers? Understand? Probably not... because at this point I'm nearly conviced you're just a troll.

Allow the fishing bait to be added to a pearl fishing rod up to a maximum of 100. Would this be a reasonable compromise?


Yeah I think so. Considering the main reason you would want an extra inventory space is because you plan on banking, this wouldn't be too much of a restriction. You would just have to remember to reload it every few trips. Plus getting the pearl equipment takes a pretty long time so it would be a little more rewarding this way.
