Since no one has started this yet..and clearly Daum has been looking at our feedback.. I feel that we should address this. My personal opinion is that they should drop from mobs & bosses because of how the players progress. People progress to pve & pvp through killing monsters most of the time.. There are however those who just like to farm/cp/dalies and I totally understand that, but why force those who don't enjoy that part of the game to do it to progress?  Of course there are those who would just say "Buy it off the market place then", but obviously they would be sniped and the amounts of them is so rare that even in other versions that are ahead of us are still being sniped.. Feel free to comment & discuss this.

you aren't forced to lose your time. You can choose to spend time for a chance to gather them, or you can do other things and pay for them.

You get double money drops, you get gear, you get levels, you get everything BUT this one little thing with grinding. And now you want this too?!?

How exactly greedy can one get?

I would like to see them as very rare drops from mobs as well. PVTree isnt something im into. I think buying them off the auction house would be viable if it was possible to actually buy anything off of the marketplace that is rare. Between individual pings and the captcha its very difficult to buy items that are rare and placed on there. Then you have the problem of needing to camp the marketplace for hours to maybe get one. It's poor game design.

I actually agree with you here. This game wasnt intended to be just pve or pvp it wants to do both :)

A 100 times yes to this. I hate gathering. Haven't done it really in any mmo I've ever played. To me it is boring and a terrible use of my time. Making these crystals only come from gathering mean we must gather constantly to get them. Because we know you won't be able to buy them with marketplace bots. 

Please just make them have an extremely low drop rate from mobs. That way we aren't forced to do something we despise.

If I get equal gear and exchange items from gathering as you get from mobs.

Because I despise grinding.

Not so sure bout this, I guess, based off this logic (I leveled to 50 on CP quests and Crafting almost totally), I am being forced to waste my time with combat....

If you want to progress you simply don;t grind mobs all day long. I can understad that majority of the playerbase are casuals (myself included) but the game will get boring in no time if everything is handled 2 you simply for killing mobs. I want to enjoy the game for some time and I guess it's same way for many more.

poor game design would be taking an item that is supposed to be rare, and forcing an abundance of those items into the world by.

a rare item should be rare, not commonly found on marketplaces.

Went through 413 energy on my main and 213 on 2 of my alts, using Lucky tools. Didn't get a shard.

I feel the pain.

 

I am a grinder and have more than enough money to buy them, not the ping or the quick hands though (I guess...). However, I think they should remain gathering-only. Those of us that make millions and millions a day grinding can already buy just about everything else, this is a reason to do other things.

Nah, give a bone to gatherers. Killing things have gotten buffed way more times than gathering/fishing/trading. Its only fair at least one of those things gets a buff.

Oh, man. Ignorant hypocrites. Gotta love it.

Oh, you can waste days apon days sitting in a bed and gathering for it, or months apon months, being -10AP and -40DP lower than everyone else that did so, because it's so incredibly rare to find it on the marketplace...

Ugh.

For people who say dont kill profession just buy them if you need them. Im pretty sure about 80% of the people who are currently like me , only grinding/pvp + some processing would rather have them obtainable from more resources or have the new marketplace implemented. Its one thing to buy them and its a completely different thing to try and snipe them with all the marketplace bots available on google these days.

Whats it to you if they're obtainable from more sources? Their value/place in the economy wont change abit. The demand will still be way over the supply.

Appatently bot means 40 people spamming refresh who are faster then you, but your ego won't allow you consider that you are slow.

Pretty obvious there are bots but even if there are none, the fact remains you will not be able to buy any. So you must gather if you want gear over +15. And that is shit game design.
