So this is going to be an updated version of my first post: https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/comment/3707782#Comment_3707782
I got done fishing a little while before homestead dropped, then with the release of morrowind, and the two additional character slots, i did exactly what everyone else does when a new class comes out....i went fishing.
Once i got master angler on my first warden, i noticed that i was 2k fish under the average amount i usually catch during each run. Then i started on my second warden, and i just barely got under 7k fish caught. When i first heard of furnishings being added to the fishing loot table, i thought it would make master angler an even longer and more painful grind. But then it actually went faster somehow. Please, check out the (bad) graphs i made below here and share your thoughts, do you think zos buffed master angler?

Total number of fish caught by each character
Average number of fish caught per run: 8189,76
Total number of fish caught, ranked by type
Total amount of fish caught: 106354. RIP my E key.
Amount of bait used per water type

Here is a timeline showing time between each run, and the difference in champion points gained between runs
And finally, here is my fish count inside my craft bag
So what do you think, did Zenimax actually buff master angler with homestead adding more to the loot table, or was it just rng being rng? Would love to hear your thoughts
