I would really love to know so that I have a better idea on which guardian to choose. I am most interested in Fisher Conjurer and Archer. Please let me know what you know asap.

There's no definitive answer really & I don't even know if the way I do it benefits me any(I would say not so far)...but most of 'em carry a weapon or tool so that's how I would choose. If ya wanna go with that it would be Thaliak for Conjurer, Llymlaen for Fisher & Oschon for Archer. But like I said, I really have no idea if that helps or will help...

I know there is no definitive answer. So what I say next is only in my observation while playing the open beta. This may be just a big coincidence, but I choose "Althyk" as my guardian, who's element is earth (He commands the element of earth and is associated with the eighth moon of the Eorzean calendar).

I noticed that the amount of earth shards I received was staggeringly higher then all the other elemental shards I received. I don’t know if one had anything to do with the other. But that was my observation. Other than that I didn't really test with multiple characters to say if there was any other difference or if my observation was fact or not. But it is what I noticed and in my head made some sense.

i picked an ice deity during OB, the destroyer or whatever (or was he lightning?) anyway it said he was a mage so i went with that.
he was not an earth deity but i had a massive amount of earth shards too, there for elemental resistance and deity have nothing to do with that.

i had lightning guardian, and 60-70pts in lightning element.
i had almost 1k earth shards at end of beta, and almost 100 lightning shards.
conclusion, it has no impact :)
marmots drop earth shards alot, thats it. In gridania only fireflies drop lightning and wind i think (at low lv), and they arnt exactly growing on trees, which makes it hard to craft anything, with any class, since most need wind shards.
it wasnt until i was hunting lv 10-15 mobs that i got wind shards...which sux.

I think Fire element would boost blacksmithing, since there's a skill for BS, that stabilizes fire element in crafting. Maybe it makes it less likely to become unstable or such...Makes sense for a BS to use fire anyways ^^

For fisher pick water/wind, for conjurer you can stick to those too, and focus on using water/aero type spells.
then you can pick a guardian that has staff/wand as tool, and or water/wind as element.
Dunno if it has any impact though :)
I think just using equipments with +craft stats and such will have bigger impact...but well, only SE knows :p
