Thx to all, good to know. So I saw dis guy harvesting at AN AMAZING speed, which is why i thought to level up harvest song. But it doesn't even come close to what he was capable of.
How was he able to do this? Just upgrade tools? Or is there like a secret way to speed up gathering skills that none of us know about? I'd like to learn the secret, please.
And do you always have to switch back and forth from your instrument to bare hands/gathering tool? Just wondering, cuz it costs a lot of time to do this, and with rank 1 harvest song there doesn't seem to be a big difference in gathering rate.
What were they gathering? If they were using a tool, it could be the tool's speed upgrades. It could also be Harvest Song, a title that boosts gathering speed (like Ruwai 2nd title), music buffs, a gathering speed potion, or all of the above.
I use a mix of all the above (minus the gathering speed potion). My Harvest Song grants a 32% (at the minimum) - 42% (at the maximum) increase, but I honestly don't remember where I'm getting the buff effects from.
Nope! If you have a high ranked Song, then you can use Harvest Song with occupied hands. It's much more convenient than switching back and forth with an instrument.
Nah, it's there. Since it's a percentage, you can imagine it's speeding up the gathering animation slightly. It's more noticeable at higher percentages.
There's a formula on the skill's Wiki page that you can use to determine gathering speed with the skill and then compare it. You can find the base gathering times across the different Life Skills here or on the respective skill pages. Be sure to account for deductions based on rank.
EDIT: Tch, it's speed. I meant speed.
P.S. Gathering eggs/herbs will feel slower when you realize Bare Hands don't have upgrades like the tools.
