    I think they should look into reducing the price. I rarely buy them either because of the 1000 gem price tag. I don’t need more gathering tools and 1000 gems is a pretty steep price for the skin. I would like to buy the skin separately for a discount.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    That’s actually an interesting idea. You should add this to the sticky thread, though.

  • A more likely option: BL Gathering Tool Vouchers. The existing vouchers ranged in price from 360 (just a back) to 540 (weapons) to 630 (back+glider) to 630 (outfits), significant discounts for buying in bulk. I imagine a gathering voucher might go for 850 for one (15% off) and 5000 for 10 (50% off)

    I agree. I'd buy at least 3 skins if it was possible to get them without another tool and therefore for less gems.

    I bought the first 3 tools which were available (Molten pick, consortium sickle and chop-it-all axe), not realising at the time there would eventually be other designs available. Later on I got the watchwork pick with gold because I really don't like the animation on the molten one and at the time it wasn't possible to change it.

    Since then several others have been released with really nice animations (the flutes are my favourites) but I don't want or need more infinite use tools and I don't think a new skin is worth 1000 gems. Whereas if it was possible to buy just the skin on it's own for a lower price I'd get all the ones I like.

    The only time I would pay 1k for a gathering tool is if it has a particular glyph attached to it that I wanted...

    Agreed, I like 'em, but not 1K like 'em.

    Sometimes that's a cheaper way to get the glyph than buying it off the TP.

    I also wouldn't mind this. The flute ones especially.
