    Greetings!

    I'd like to give you all an update on the progress we have been making on gathering point grades.

    We understand that in 1.0, the gathering point grades varied quite a bit which made it difficult to choose one appropriate for your level. In A Realm Reborn, we will be preparing corresponding grades for each level.

    We feel this should solve the problem that many of you have brought up where the experience points you were receiving past 40 from grade 5 gathering points just wasn't enough to level up efficiently.

    Bah, There are many other ways to level your DoL classes without actually going out into the fields. That being said, I do not know if these other methods ( Primals, Quests, etc ) will be removed or not in 2.0.

    *Incoming large post*

    I started going for Axe of the Luminary in Treespeak (Grade V) as a BTN30. By the time I had finished that area and half of Halatali (Grade V), without touching any other areas, I was BTN50. This included completion of off-hand achievements Personally I liked that I got a quarter of the achievements (5490 hatchet strikes and about 1000 scythe swings) done while gaining 20 levels.

    Will this be the same proportion? By going from 1-50 can we expect to have 30% of the achievements done, or less than 10%? Apart from the weeks of effort, I think this might effect players' willingness to pursue the Luminary tools. I suppose you can't answer this without Yoshi-P's consent, let alone some absurd calculations based on estimated exp gained in each area.

    I'm also curious as to how gathering achievements will change as a result of the shift from a Grade system to a tree/rock/fish level system. This video shows us that trees have levels now (presumably in increments of 5). Does this mean that rather than one achievement per grade per region will change to one achievement per level per region (Black Shroud lvl15 Mature Trees, for example)? If so, how will recorded values from 1.0, such as the several hundred Mining strikes I have n Thanalan V, be recalculated for the new achievements? Or will these incomplete achievements be unobtainable, and new achievements take their place? I seem to remember they were not among the list of 1.0 exclusives.

    Any answers you can provide would be nice. I know I spent a lot of time mining Thanalan Grade V, and I'd hate to have that all disappear in case I want to pick it up again (no pun intended).

    Edit: We can cross this bridge when we come to it, but will there be upgrades for Luminary tools after a level cap increase? They're practically the Relics of Land/Hand.

    Assuming Luminary tools are going to be obtainable in the same fashion in 2.0.

    Right. There's always a chance they'll scrap the achievement method and put a bunch of quests in for the Luminaries.

    But like I said, the achievements related to Gathering were not on the list of discontinued content. I know that list was subject to change, but it never hurts to ascertain the situation. Knowledge is power
