The event details specifically states "When gathering wool, it must be gathered with a gathering knife only."
You're teaching the small child how to do this. Her character model isn't there with you, but in the dialogue it's implied she is. Don't use a bigger or heavier knife than she can hold. Teach her properly or she'll hurt herself.
Plus a gathering knife is like 80g. Pretty sure some mob somewhere drops one too. Can't remember what off the top of my head, but there's no way I enchanted one to be Windy lmao
Again, I had a dagger handy, and IIRC the bit about having to use a gathering knife was added after a number of players were going "What?" when logic left the stadium.(check the "help" section to see some of the threads)..
An example of some weirdness- people reported success using a sickle.
I am half tempted to try using a pickaxe or gathering hatchet, just to see if that also works.
The premise might be depressing but that makes the goal of helping her become independent that much more uplifting, don't you think?
Just a sudden thought now. I'm PRETTY sure that EU prize (Festia Merchant Set F or M by choice) is not even close to worth of 100 dollars, which NA players will be getting as a prize instead. Really unfair when you think that way. Also, poor Australia and other countries that aren't in NA or EU. They get nothing.
