Hello,

I am wondering how the event is going for everybody.  Here's my results so far.

35 minutes of grinding without kama buff  (22 blackstones)

270 energy (no sharp or hard crystals)

AFK fishing in "abundant resources area" with fishing 5.  (0 ancient relics) 70 durability rod

 

Well those are my results guys, how's yours!?

Had terrible relic drops before the patch. Right after the patch I got 8-ish shards in 3-4 hours of fishing.

The only thing I've noticed is blackstone drop increase.

450 energy - 2 hard 1 sharp (pretty standard)

Several hours of fishing = 4 relics (also pretty standard)

In past "relic" events the added relics where a chance to catch one in addition with a fish.  All I am catching while fishing is additional Lavientia event items, and all the relics I've gotten are standard single relic catches.  I think the Lavientia event extension is bugging out the so called "relic/shard" event and frankly the blackstones are the only items increased at the moment.

Good to confirm then.  I'll just chalk up my experience to really bad luck then.

I grinded for an hour last night before node war started and looted 24 blacktones combined.  Gathered for a short period of time after node war using 100ish energy before I got interrupted by an enemy guild and ended up with nothing.  However,  I was afk fishing for 8 hours last night and woke up with 10 relic shards in my inventory.  I don't see any difference with the relic shards because i'm averaging 7-8 shards in my spot fishing for 8-9 hours even before this event started.

I haven't done any grinding yet, but I have gathered.

142 energy using +1 gathering clothes, Gold Laventia Ring, Event Tea for gathering, and a weapon that has +2 luck to max me out to 5. In 142 energy (about an hour), I got two sharps and 1 hard.

Kakao lies to its Lifeskillers.   NOT BIG SURPRISE   

 

And no, I haven't gotten a single Shard from my Garden.  I can TELL when the Gathering bonus is actually in effect because I always get a CryShard from my big Garden every single day.   If it IS turned on, then it's at a massively nerfed Rate from the rates we had in the past

700+ energy=3 hards...so below average there even without event

Fk fishing now but guildies got 14-16 shards overnight so I'm optimistic

 

I am getting 50-75 black stones an hour though which is pretty phenomenal
