    Crystal Gathering too Slow

    For all You crafters/Gatherers out there how long has it taken you to gather enough shards to craft Efficiently ?

    For me it takes 2 hours with Miner LVL 42 with the shard yield abilities to get to 1k shards i personally think that is too slow

    i can think of some solutions
    *Make the shard yield Fixed @ 2 or 3
    *Make the Shard gathering abilities cost less around 100GP-150GP
    *Add a trait that Increases yield total for each Shard Gather ability
    *Have all enemies drop At least 1 Shard/Crystal per kill with a 75% chance (Like 1.0)
    *Have alchemy class create crystals (Like 1.0)
    *Make GP like CP
    *Make Shards a Fixed sell-able rate say around 5 gil a piece maximum

    Edit more ways

    Is shard farming something that crafters would actually pay money for rather than farm themselves? I'm not much into crafting, but I love gathering. I should look into this >.>

    I burned through 400 shards in two levels below level 30 as a Weaver. This was with creating all of my yarn and cloth, not buying them on AH. Two levels, when leveling is still relatively fast and easy.

    It goes really fast.

    so with 2 hours of gathering, you get shards to get about 4 levels for your craft, xp on your gatherer and materials to sell, and make money off of what you craft? Crafting is far too easy and levels way too fast already. I'll admit that sometimes shards should drop from enemies that arent sprites sometimes.. like 25-50% though. If you want more shards, buy them. you arent meant to farm everything you need on one class to get your xp points for another class. you CAN do it, just wont be in a timely fashion. Its sorta like saying that i want to level cooking, but it takes too long to catch all of the fish myself, so give me fish faster.

    I need 12000 wind shards, you expect me to mine up that many? How long would that take when you get 4~6 shards a mining point? You expect me to do nothing but mine shards for 3 months 8 hrs a day? Oh but wait i can buy them right? Oh but wait Gil is being evaporated at an alarming rate. Ok so i buy 12000 wind shards for a couple of mil, then what do i do? I'm broke cant craft anything because i cant buy the materials. Oh i can go farm them you say? Hrmm i could but i would have to run that dungeon that drops the pieces i need for days on end and maybe il get one.
    Welcome to the twilight zone where logic is thrown out the window.

    If your crafting class was meant to make its own shards, it would be able to.
