Has anyone tested this? I just put my wind to 40 and left the rest at default and I am now getting lots of wind shards.

I also dumped a lot into wind, I have it past 40, and I get a lot of wind shards from mining... you might be onto something

Maybe, I have more points in fire, water, earth and ice and i have notably more of those shards than wind and lightning, but the difference is only between 5 and 10

I haven't allocated any of my points yet so I just put everything in to wind. Gonna try it out now.

it works. My mining is rank 10 and I'd never found a single wind shard before. I just got one straight away after putting the points in to wind!

i seem to only get wind shard from mining/logging i have everything at default and wind element at 82, maybe i or someone else can try to reassign all their point to lighting and see if they only get lighting shard

I've pumped my wind to 40 asap and I have only 13 wind shards, while I have 68 fire shards and 87 earth shards.

Botany, especially in LL, is going to get you a lot of wind shards.

Considering, nobody was getting any wind shards before the patch, i wonder if that has anything to do with it.

If they want the possibility of someone being a miner as a main, the elemental resistance would be useless for them compared to a fighting class, so it would make sense to provide a benefit in some way to the crafters like influencing the shards they collect.
