[Question] Gathering, wood or hide?

    • [Question] Gathering, wood or hide?

      Well, thats what i'm wondering now, i've got the two to tier 4 as i'm currently playing on the forest biome, and want to specialise in one of the two.
      What are the pros and cons of each one?
      I tend to play solo, with bow and leather chest.

    • And the con of doing hide I guess is it’s more time consuming as you have to kill the animal first before any gathering occurs. With wood it’s just chop chop and on to the next tree.

      I found hide gathering the toughest of the 5 to reach tier 8.

      If you’re in a forest zone and go hide always carry an axe with you anyway ... never walk past enchanted resources!

      that's why i have both on tier 4, i couldn't let those resources behind, the greed was too big.
      heh. Yeah that was my problem too. It’s feasible to do both at the same time though. It won’t half your gain speed due to the availability of resources in a zone. Just stop and chop any trees you see on the way to the next hide animal.

    • Whichever three resources are available in the zone, I carry all three tools for each type. In the past, I would go out gathering, once ox was full, I’d return home, with everything that I gathered. For about a month I’ve been concentrating on raising wood gathering to using T8 wood axe. I’ve been getting about 5% fame per day for wood gathering ( T7 to T8 ), gathering T3,4, & T5 wood. Currently at 93% fame needed to reach T8. So about two more days will reach my goal, then 5 days later should unlock T8 stone hammer use. That’s all grind, no LP. :)

      The different method I used is, while gathering as I fill up, I toss all hides and T3-4 Stone. Only keep all wood T3,4,5 normal and enchanted, plus all T5 Stone. Using a T8 ox, I usually return home with 100-200 T5 stone, 500 T5 wood, 2500 T4 wood, 3000 T3 wood, plus a few hundred enchanted wood.

      The only problem, on my island, I now have over 100,000 wood that needs to be refined. I have yet to gather the needed T2. :)

      Out of curiosity, you do this method gathering in BZ? With an ox?
