The trainer quests from your black spirit, for the professions, give them after the skilled level ones (i believe)

posted this in 2 other threads. i guess it's the same as gathering, but farming is way more consistent in terms of shard drop rate.

 

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

"The secret to getting shards frequently is farming. With 100 crops (100cp = 10 strong fences), I pull about 70 shards a week, maybe more. That's after spending around 200 energy a day (I'm  Pro8 in farming). I get around 2-3 shards for every 100 fixes. Sometimes a little less frequently, but my ratio is around 1 for 40-50 energy. It's a very consistent and reliable drop rate. I do not plan on rushing my +20s (i'm focused on getting at least all tri jewelry first), so i sold all of my shards and made almost 400 mil in the span of a few hours. Farming is an amazing and lucrative way to make money and supplement your buffs if done correctly.

 

My recommendation is planting 100 crops of seeds that have an 8 hour breed time. Plant fixes proc everytime your energy is refreshed(every 3 minutes), so if you wait 30-60 minutes, you can generally go into your garden have anywhere from 40-100 fixes available (so a potential 1-2 shards an hour). I've found sharp and hard shards to drop at a very even rate, and it's usually in a 1:1 ratio (for every sharp i get a hard shard also). i've even gotten such good rng that I get BOTH shards from one fix.

 

Here's a screenshot of the chatbox AFTER i got that double shard proc from a single fix (I got 2 shards and a twig). Unfortunately, I'm so used to spamming R for fixing that I pressed R to loot before I realized what kind of RNG i got on the drop, so I missed the screenshot of both shards in the loot window.

I. 200 energy gives me 4~500 fixes(varies depending on rng). 

        II. If i spend the entire day farming (and rest on pearl store bed between fixes), I can do about 500 energy (depending on how much willpower and patience i have before i go bored and want to go beat down sausans to relieve stress) and get about 15-20 shards.

        III. In this photo I have dry manes and hump mushrooms because i breed them for fruits of magic power and enchant. i don't recommend them strictly for farming shards or leveling, though. i'd go with t3 fire flake, t3 wheat, or t3 potatos. anything with a long harvest time."

 

I will update this post with a screenshot after another week to show my supply of shards, as I've sold most of them last night/this morning for jewelry enchanting, liverto enchanting and horse armor enchanting money (which I was able almost do all of!) <-- ~400mil/week/50-60mil a day in shards alone, probably another 5-10 mil in seeds/spirit leaves/monk branches/female kermes.

so you procrastinated and now are scrambling...there's a lesson to be learned here.  I haven't been able to purchase many but I'm up to 30 sharp and 70 hard, feeling pretty good about getting most of my stuff to 18

 

gonna wait a while for 19-20

How is getting silver procrastinating. I spent energy to level up nodes, I spent my time farming accessories to get duo's and work towards tri's, I grind mobs for silver. I don't have energy to waste on gathering and I am not about to waste time on doing farming. I am not going to waste silver to do a stupid guessing game game with other players to find out how much silver they are willing to pre-order stones for.

Being able to loot the stones off of mobs or being able to smash Regular armor stones and weapon stones together for hard/sharp would be way better system. I wouldn't care if they still let you get them gathering.

they weren't sold out till today, you procrastinated in stockpiling crystal shards.  You CHOSE to spend silver on accessories instead of planning ahead and buying shards.  You KNEW it was coming and chose not to prepare.  You dug your hole, get comfy

i don't gather, Its -----ing boring, I bought all my shards with silver.

 

we are getting the same system as every other version of this game, you should've done son research if this was a deal breaker for you
