Sharp and Hard crystal shards

Wondering how everyone is doing gathering the new sharp and hard blackstone fragments. I'm professional 3 in gathering and today I've gathered 300+ water, 300+ fir sap, 300+ wolf meat and haven't gotten one to drop yet. I wasn't using lucky tools and I havent done a single gathering quest yet, could that be it?

Used up 3x lucky shining tools and got 7 shards. Artisan 6 gathering. From the data I gathered around it seems very likely to be a flat 1% chance with a lucky. Think it gets way worse without one.

Water doesn't seem to give the shards.

I went gathering meat and wild herbs. The meat I didn't get one from, but the herbs, I got one shard after about 20 plants. Prof. 2 gathering & normal steel tool.

Gathering Pine sap since the patch I got 1 sharp and 2 hard shards with a single lucky shining fluid collector and then another 3 hard shards using about 400 durability worth of non lucky fluid collectors. 5 luck artisan 1 gathering.

Gathering: Artisan 2

Method: Pine Sap

Tool: Lucky Shining Fluid Collector

Energy Spent: ~350

Luck: 5/5

Shards: 3 Hard 0 Sharp

 

Oddly enough, my friend who has Apprentice level of Gathering Pine Sap with Steel Lucky tools and luck lv 5, got 1 Sharp and 1 Hard after about 180 Energy... Maybe RNG is just being RNG, but I feel like people with Artisan+ Gathering levels should acquire a substantial amount more than what I'm seeing.

Artisan 10 (Almost Master) gathering here.
We have a few Art 5+ in our guild and we seem to be getting them from mining rocks once every 100 energy or so.
Sometimes it takes 200 energy sometimes 50.
With a 24H loyalty buff and some energy pots (x15) and a day filled with nothing but gathering i've managed to get over 40 of these.

Shining steel lucky pickaxe.
5/5 Luck.
Mining feldspar - Andesite - Bloodstone etc.
13 Sharp 27 Hard.

Guildie of mine got it from skinning. 
We can confirm that it doesn't matter what rank you are for it to drop, we cannot confirm however that it drops more often for higher ranks even though i'd like to think so myself.

Hope this helps you guys a bit.

Anybody know if you can gather blood and still get them? I would assume you can, just don't want to burn 500+ energy before being certain.

Yes, you can get them from blood. Guildie of mine said he got it from sapping Weasels so.

I'm M1 and in about 60 energy, not sure how many rocks that is with conservation, I got 1 of each type.
About 20 energy with trees I got another hard shard.
Then later, two more hard shards.

So, total of maybe 350 energy, 1 sharp, 4 hard.

@1 gathering level, 2 luck, Master01, no food / guild buffs, Sharp pick, mainly rocks and some trees

So it almost sounds like there's a huge jump from anything below Master 01. Also, that your character luck doesn't effect the rate possibly? Cool to see others' data~

Got one with a dull axe while chopping a tree for a Guild Mission LOL.

I'm not high skilled gathering either, can't even use steel yet.

I started the patch at artisan 4, lucky tools, doing sap and rocks.  I got 17 in about 1300 energy.  Since hitting Artisan 5 I've hit a massive wall, getting 1 so far, I'm at 97% exp so  I'm closing in on Artisan 6 and wondering if it's just artisan 5 that is bugged maybe?  I don't know what to think.  It's probably close to 2k energy spent to go from 0-97% art 5,  That's a pretty big sample size to only get 1.  I'm drinking energy pots and had blessing of kamasilve on for some of that time.

Also I got the +10% gathering chance from sturdy yellow alch life stone, and have had either 4/5 luck during this time.

100% Sure it's 1% chance with lucky now. Got 30 shards now and it's very clearly giving 1 every 100 dura. Feels way worse without a lucky though.

Haven't played much lately, but today I played for a bit.   Went out to butcher some grey foxes.   And got the Sharp shard.   And I got it after butchering like 5-6 foxes. I suppose I was extremly lucky though :)

I was just using ordinary Steel butchers knife. No Lucky or anything.  And as I said, took me 5-6 butchering to get my first(and so far only) shard.    I'm 'only' Gathering Professional 2 aswell.

Perhaps lucky tools increases your chance, gotta be a reason why they are "lucky" after all.  And I was just having luck for a change.  I wasn't even aware of these shards until I got it from a minute or less of butchering.

So yeah, Im  Gathering Pro 2.  Ordinary Steel Butcher's Knife.  Was not wearing any luck-increasing gear other than the "skilled gatherer's costume" or w/e it's called.
