Exact Hidden Gathering Fatigue Reset Time?Follow

#1 Aug 22 2011 at 1:11 AM Rating: Good
Anyone have a confirmed duration of the hidden gathering fatigue? I am at the point in which I wanna start power grinding my botanist, but I haven't gone out of extended gathering stints since before some of the latest patches. Is the hidden gathering fatigue still there, and if so, if you know exactly how long I have to wait between gathering trips (that way I also get max drops while not losing sp/hr to "damaged" items) so I can manage my time efficiently... I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

So, basically, to efficiently manage my time, I can just go out and do one full stretch until hitting the fatigue point, once per day. Appreciate it, thanks.

“To clear up your questions, we have checked with the Dev. team and found out the following.

As a countermeasure against RMT activities, the probability of gaining items through gathering will start to decrease after repeated attempts over a long period of time. After a certain number of attempts, items will no longer be obtainable through gathering.

To explain a little more on what goes on behind the scenes, there is an internal counter which measures how often a player has attempted gathering activities. Players will start with a maximum pool of 2,500, which will decrease by 10 each time a gathering attempt is successful and yields an item. Once this number decreases to 1,000, players will find it harder to obtain items. At 0, items can no longer be obtained through gathering.

Stopping gathering for some time will bump this number back up. The recovery rate is currently set at 100 per hour.”


150 succesful attempts before you will see a reduction. 250 succesful attempts maximum. Regen at 10 successes per hour.

Thanks Meenkie.

They ever say if this was 2500 points across all DoL classes or 2500 for each class?

I just assumed it was 2500 across all DoL classes, not for each, but has there been confirmation or testing on this?

I will make sure this information is added to the skill up section of the Botany Guide here on ZAM.
