Hey all, I just got this message on a level 10 tree that I was harvesting as a 18 BTN.

Is there a way to force more gathering attempts? Or was this random?

there is always one or two nodes that will enhance your gathering experience!

Random, there are serveral things like that.

Perception greater then XXX = bonus % chance to HQ
Gathering greater than xxx = bonus % to gathering
int/str/dex etc > than xxx = bonus attempt to gather

Im sure im forgeting something,

Usually there are 4 trees. The special attempts will spawn on the same tree/log every time. This is the same as crystals. 2 trees spawn them, the same 2 trees every time.

No need to force it. You just have to wait for that same gathering point to respawn for the same bonus.

There's a botonist ability that will give you an extra gatherimg attempt, I think you get it at lvl 30. It costs 300 GP per use though so you wont be usimg it every tree. I like using it on the tree that already gives me an extra attempt. Just dont use it right away, take a swing first otherwise it will waste the ability.

Are you sure this works? Every time I've tried using that ability on that same tree, it always says it did not add an additional attempt. This is confusing considering there's an ability that only works after chain 4. I was always curious if you could use that ability on nodes other than the unspoiled ones.

Only times I saw that message was when I'd hit the ability right away. If I hit the tree until I have one hit left then used it, it has always worked.

..I always thought it was a text error from a condition line in a script.

Your resource node has to be partially depleted before it will work. This is the same as the mining version.

+1 attempt spots give you 1 extra harvest.

Harvest > Ageless Words > Harvest > Harvest > Harvest > Harvest > Brunt Force > Harvest

Chain 5 with 100% crit on the end.
