The drop rate on these thing is ridiculous I get 1 for every 1000 energy on average. They need another way of getting them then just gathering so we can at least craft as well. Or set it to at least get one every 300 or so.

Depending on your RNG it can be REALLY bad. Nearly 2,000 shovels used, and 10+ lucky tools and still ZERO shards. This really is bad and im surprised the Koreans havent said anything?

RNG is RNG. You have good days and bad days. Few tips;

1. Get 3-4 workshops mass producing lucky steel tools.

2. You'll find your energy goes alot further as you rank up in gathering. You'll really notice a difference at artisan.

Tip: sharp fluid collectors are the easiest to collect. Go ham on the tons of sheep north of Heidel.

1 for 1000 energy is pretty unlucky. I usually get 2-3 for ~700 shovels at Artisan 3. It still isn't fun though. I get about 4 hours to play after getting home from work and 45min of it is spent watching my character dig.

its whats on everyones mind. My biggest mistake was holding onto my silver in anticipation of the night trader instead of blowing it all on shards before Valencia. I lost that gamble and now have to get by with my allotment of 1 shard per 2 days.

LIke I said if I got 1 in a 1000 energy that would be bad luck and yeah rng I wouldn't care so some days good some bad.. but I average 1 in 1000 either my luck is super bad or the drop rate sucks.

I'm happy with the current drop rate.  Having the best gear in the game should be hard as hell to achieve.  If you don't like gathering then grind to get silver and purchase them on the market.  Of course there aren't many available on the market due to limited supply and huge demand but, over time, the demand will decrease.

Another post about a player who wants everything they want, by only doing the things that they want, and be damned about other in game activities. If you can't handle gathering the shards yourself, saving the silver to preorder them, or waiting until the demand dies down, go find a game more suited to your tastes. I prefer a game that tries to make more of it's content relevant. Gathering is now relevant. Before the introduction of shards, gathering as a profession was a waste of time.

Plenty of players have obtained enough shards to TRI all their gear and continue towards TET. I imagine you also want Ogre rings to be easier to obtain. 

The drop rate on these OGRE RINGS is ridiculous I get 1 for every 1000 OGRES on average. They need another way of getting them then just FIGHTING so we can at least craft as well. Or set it to at least get one every 300 or so.

Fixed for you.

Dont understand all the whining, the average for me and everyone i know is 1 shard every 100-150 shovells or lucky tool gathers.

If you are gathering with standars tools yeah, multiply that by 5x.

Learn what works and what doesnt before you come here and whine on the forums. Stop trying to get games to become easy to suit your needs. 

TL;DR

git gud or gtfo

Farming 2 plots of peppers over 5 days has earned 7 sharp and 5 hard. Takes 2mins to kill bugs/prune. I am also art 6 gathering and I won't ever go back to gathering since farming is less work.  Also the game is a marathon not a sprint so the drop rate is perfect.

Yes, thru purchasing on the market. Not by gathering.

Yet another one of these threads we get like what 3-5 of these a day depending on RNG?

I'm Art gathering and I have no real prob getting 1-2 with my silly low energy pool of 160.

Has anyone thought of farming and doing a guild gathering mission at same time? It might be less boring for those who think it is not action packed like "Grinding Mobs".
