I've been observing for many weeks now that some Glyphs no longer work (e.g., Glyph of the Scavenger), while others no longer work on certain nodes (e.g., the Glyph of the Watchknight no longer producing Warchwork Sprockets on Baubles home node) or have a majorly reduced rates of producing the additional gathering results.

Please fix your Glyphs, ANet. Players paid either Gems or gold to get them and now they are having issues (it started approximately in late December or early January after a patch, I don't recall the exact date).

@Hesione.9412 said:From my recall, it started prior to the Wintersday patch, so that wasn't what broke it.

I have observed that more glyphs have become affected over time (for instance the Watchwork Sprockets no longer dropping from the SAB home node and the respective tool producing less in general than prior to the bug). So it's been getting worse since the patch you mentioned.

i have the glyph of the scavenger on all three tools.it works perfectly fine on the pickaxe.it works perfectly fine on the logging axe.on the sickle however, instead of having a 33% chance of getting fine materials it instead has a 33% chance of giving an additional loot of that plant.

i don't mind that behaviour, mostly the plants i bother to harvest give me more than the fine materials so it is a net gain but if that change is intentional the description should be adjusted and if it is bug i hope it is not considered bugusing to harvest nodes with the glyph ...

are you sure that isn't from something else like an item booster?

just went through at least 100 nodes with 0 procs

it actually didn't work for me today either but i had no different buffs on me when i posted. that said i currently have a streak of very lucky ore/wood harvests once getting 6 logs from 1 tree and mostly 4. it might've been coincidence ...

Any chance (in the future) the gathering speed of the tools will be updated as well?Given we're now forced to use the volatile gather tool if we want an actual benefit,and can't use the molten tools without sacrificing speed.

(it's a small thing, but the nuisance adds up over time)

While this is being looked at, would it be possible to look at some tools not gathering as many times as some other tools? The one that effects me personally is the Skyscale Hatchling Logging Tool. It sometimes only chops trees twice while other tools always hit 3 times. It also doesn't always happen but it's very frustrating gathering in for example my home instance with the tool because it costs so much more time.

I believe the norn spirit animal (not sure which one, the wolf I believe?) also sometimes has this issue.

The correct number of gathers for everything is actually 4. Some might be more easily interruptable than others.

I'm aware of it, but it technically ''hits'' 3 times with the 4th gather reward being added to the 3rd hit. The tools I'm talking about seem to have a issue with the cast times or animations and it sometimes only ''hits'' 2 times. So you need to gather an additional time to get the 3rd and 4th reward if that makes sense.

It's extremely annoying, and quite frankly I'm not happy I paid real life money on the tool that effect me the most.

I'm assuming that doesn't include the Skyscale Hatchling Logging Tool? Is that actually something that is being looked at out of curiosity?

That is a different issue, so this fix doesn't touch it, but someone is looking into that one as well.

Very happy to see it's at least being looking into. I hope it's something that can be fixed!

There seems to be a fundamental problem with glyphs because factually you can't get a refund if you mistakenly buy a gem store gathering tool with a glyph in it. Maybe the problem with glyphs goes very deep. I'm seeing odd things with volatile and unbound behaviour.

I bought the "Skyscale Hatchling Harvesting Tool - Comes with Glyph of Reaping" when it was on sale a few days ago. I had one of them for my main account and it speeds up my daily gathering a lot, so I bought one for my 2nd account. On my main account the tools work. The NEW "Skyscale Hatchling Harvesting Tool - with Glyph of Reaping" does not harvest all nearby nodes in my home instance, although WvW, Guild Hall and open world work fine. Please fix this.

There have been documented changes to how glyphs like Reaping work but perhaps only to 'some' so maybe there are different 'versions' of the glyphs in circulation, who knows without some actual clarification from ANet.

They disabled reaping for everyone but the instance owner since it could be used to gather ascended food materials with.And if the owner dident gather then unlimited number of materials could be gathered by diffrent people all day long.

Thanks for the reply. Home instance is a huge part of the tools purpose. Not happy.
