Sharp and Hard black crystal Shards.

4 posts in this topic

Posted

Hello!

I have a question which has been for around 5 days in my mind.

Since the event stopped with the Gathering - Hard and Sharp black crystal shards are way to hard to get and they drop superb rare so far and i don't know why.

Everyday i am putting my 300-500 energy into this "professional 6 almost 7" in gathering and get 0 or max 1 shard in a whole day.

Before the event i atleast got 3-4 hard/sharp crystals which was quiet ok in the event i got like 6-8 which was really nice but now after the event i get 0-1.

i am using mostly Fluid collectors and butcher knifes.. maybe you guys should check that out because i am getting sick of gathering for nothing.

I always had the feeling the loot tables are messed up whenever there is a event going on O.o But that's just me.

However, shards from pruning still seem to have normal drop rates. I got a shard after 2,14,32,45,20,29 crops. Keep in mind, RNG can be really bad once in a while and you get the "unlucky streak" - sometimes i need to prune 100+ crops before i get a shard.

Good luck! :)

I do farming, 10 x 10 slot fences :) I used to farm shards with butcher/tanning knife and pickaxes but the drop rate was always significantly lower for me, than pruning plants. It's also less energy consuming, i attend to my crops 2-3 hours per day, using about 150-200 energy and pulling out 3-7 shards. Never got that amount when gathering other things.
