Wind Shard Suggestions?Follow

So in CB obviously we were limited to one area, and all shard types dropped outside of LL.

OB changed things up a bit, and I noticed that I had a difficult time obtaining anything but fire, earth and lightning killing things around Ul'dah. In fact, I had to pop over to La Noscea (LL areas) to obtain any wind shards from rank 1-12 mobs.

Aside from sticking around La Noscea, which I'd rather not do, does anyone have any suggestions on rank 1-10 mobs around Ul'dah who might drop these that I missed?

Central Thanalan seems to have a very poor wind shard selection.. you better off going to LL or North Forest. I've not tried it myself, but heard tell that having a higher wind res increases the chance of wind related drops. My wind is highest right now, and I did get a fair bit of wind shards fishing in Central Thanalan.

Winds shards and crystals are the new fire shards/cystals.

In Beta easy to find - now virtually impossible except for outside LL(at up to lvl 10).

I travelled from Uldah and am going to level a couple of jobs to collect a bunch of shards. Then I'm going to go back to Uldah, sit in the Goldsmiths guild and sell them for a whopping profit, mwa ha ha ha.

Actually, I am going to collect a bunch so that I can return to where I wanted to level.

Thanks for the replies. This is pretty much what I figured, and I had hoped SE would fix the loot tables on this but apparently not. I can understand fire and earth being the primary shards from a desert zone, but a few here and there wouldn't have hurt.

I get very few outside LL zone. The black shroud has them pretty sporadically. The easiest place for me to farm them in OB was the sheep by LL tho. lots of em there to kill

I still get decent amount of windshard in Ul'dah. There are plenty of dodos there.

In Open Beta, the Puks and Sheep south of the entrance to Limsa Lominsa were ungodly awesome for getting shards. Try there?
