Why keep slowing down the speed of logging and mining?

Why do you people keep doing stupid kitten like slowing down the speed of logging and mining? You guys do this across the board on other skills and frankly it slows the game as you try to min/max every little bit of time gate possible. I'm losing a lot of respect for this game.

    Did you change Gathering Tools, or something?
    You can purchase Industrious Gathering Tools for Karma from Gathering Merchants.

    Maybe he means the new unlimited tools keep getting slower and slower? It's weird that tools form years ago are much faster and better than the current tools (not including the slots). Though latest tools have been lacking in glyph value too compared to older tools.

    Those probably just get made based on what they can come up with for the animation without much concern for its affect on gathering speed

    I would accept that answer if they did not also adjust the amount gathered per strike or interaction. I would prefer things are normalized. I will never use the glacial tools because they are inferior to the point I notice them. Changing them is like going from an Ascended weapon to an Rare. You notice.

    At this point they should all gather up to 4 per interact for all tool types. Anything that doesn't should be reported as a bug

    That's my thinking too. For a start I think if Anet were making new tools specifically to be faster they would point that out in the item description, and as far as I know none of them actually say they're faster (or slower), it's something players have to work out for themselves. I think their focus is just on making different animations and they're not thinking about whether one of them completes 1/2 a second earlier or later than average.

    They didn't. You just care more about it now because that's where your focus is.

    If we want ANet to step up their game, then we must step up ours.

    I did find that the flutes mine slower than other tools.

    The fastest tool i have seen for plants is that Consortium Harvesting Sickle.

    I personally use the Tireless Harvesting Minion which finishes the harvest half way through the cast.

    Thresher golem is like that as well

    Some gathering tools are much slower than others. Why I stick with the unbound set.

  • Memoranda.9386Memoranda.9386 Member ✭✭✭

    Or buy three Glyph of Industry. Goes 50% faster that way, assuming you aren't using another Glyph that you want.

    I doubt it's even a thing. I see no difference

    I farm using the same old set EVERY day heavily for an hour. I also don't see a difference.
    I did notice the choya guys and dragons were slower.

    Yeah he wasn't specific so I assumed all of them or even the regular ones he might of used. There do seem to be some unlimited that seem faster then others. Like my sickle is really fast but on my alt I got the butterfly one for black lion scraps and it could be slower but it gathers before animation is done so I leave early so it's probably the same

    yeah, flute seems to be the worst of the bunch, I often do animation break as soon as the final strike registers and move on
    but with the flute, I frequently unable to animation break, or character stuck in place for like a second or two unable to move (can turn still)
