So why are these yielding an occasional ruined log regardless of the gathering tool used?
I would guess it's just a bug ATM. I tried the VM and UM axes along with my dream cleaver. And I still get some ruined logs. The eerie logs do have a funky glow, so maybe there's another tool we use on them in the future?
It was said in the ama that this is a bug and will be fixed soon.
When you cut the driftwood it gives you two items; one Elder Wood and one roll on a second table. The second table has a chance to drop the Ruined Log.
Did they remove this from game? I havent seen any since the last patch?
Some on map showed me they can see it but I cant. I see the art of the log but its not yellow to me where I can use a gathering tool. Its just part of the landscape
