Previously was soulbound, all new ones are account bound. They stated this a couple months ago. (Even while we could change our soulbond ones for acc bound ones).

Also, about the sickle, I’m already happy with 2 full sets infinites. One for my main, and one another for my alt-completioners. 🙂

too bad.

I hoped they should add something like the gemstore Watchwork mining pick.
For example a toxic pristine sample…

I don’t have an unlimited sickle, but I had heard that it gets all of the plant in one go (I’m skeptical of this claim). Like when I harvest herbs and I get garlic, but I can harvest it again and get peppercorns, and sometimes I can harvest it again and get thyme. Do you have to keep standing there and pressing “F” as with the regular (orichalcum, mithril, etc.) harvesting sickle, or does the unlimited tool actually harvest it all at once?

All sickles “get all of the plant in one go”, it’s just that (when they fix WvW bonuses in PvE) there is a chance to get bonus harvests, for which it basically counts as a new plant.

I guess that would explain the different herbs available from one herb patch. I hadn’t really thought about it that way before. Thanks! And I suppose the guild gathering bonus would also do that.

The Consortium sickle animation is faster than the plain tools. How quickly does this one execute?

Nah, the Consortium Sickle animation actually executes faster. It takes about a second less to harvest land plants with it than with other sickles, including this one.

It harvests “all” with one command, but somehow it feels slower than the Consortium sickle. Could be the kneeling animation that’s making it seem that way…

For 1 000 gems( +10euros), i was hoping one for each of all our char (account bound is not enough), exactly like pantheon stuff, they should made that for gem-store armor or weapon too, for now imo, its just rape more and more.

Count how much it cost when you get 8 char, *3 tools *1000gems, same for armors and same for weapons….It’s just crazy.

I bought the Phoenix armor just for the skirt for 800 gems and the Kyrtan armor for 500 gems just for the chest piece, so yeah, it’s worth it.

No, only for people who aren’t poor. Besides, I partially used gold for all of my purchases. It isn’t rocket science.

Subjective value is subjective. Your assessment is not someone else’s. And for the record, 400 gems is “at least” 200 gems.

HI, it is a known probleme with unlimited tools.
If you try to harvest resources while under attack, you have a chance to get ruined materials instead of resources.

it happens when some trait mechanisms get fired up while harvesting, like getting some boons when hitpoints reach 75% etc which indeed mostly happens when you get attacked. i think that it happens with regular tools too.

do i get this right? you get 2 eyepatches for the price of 400 gems: one for left eye and one for the right one. so 2 skins?

Although that would be funny… and that may have been the point of your comment… you can’t. Each eyepatch takes up the head slot so only one at a time.
