    Any farmers experienced a drop in Emerald shards?

    hey fellow farmers.
    Have any of you experience a drop of emerald shards from crops?

    So far i have over 20000 worth of pears from these crops and not a single shard.

    I have seen in my kin that woodcutters and miners are getting lots of them every few hours
    whats up with that?

    A kinnie has loot an emerald shards in crop

    And as a miners, I only drop 2 emerald shards.... in 1500 chunks of skarn. The drop rate is really low if we compare with T8 nodes.

    That's good to know.. then i only have 200 ore to go before i get my guaranteed next shard, right? :|
    iow, the drop rate's terrible, and indeed much worse than it was for t8

    My experience has been that of all the crafts, shards drop the least while Farming. I am finished tier 9, have always farmed. Saw a couple of adament and mithril flakes over the years, but by and large, shards drop much higher in scholar, wood and ore nodes.

    My first emerald shard from farming was after 1200 fields. 12 x 100 fields. Twelve-hundred.

    I am sure the RNG has been kind to me, I got 2 emerald shards, farming up some mats for my cook, got both of them, in the 200 pear tree crops I planted

    Wow, I've farmed since SoA and almost maxxed out T9 and have never seen a shard/flake/etc of any description. Didn't really think about them "dropping" from farming but nice to know that they can.

    In something around 2500/2800 ores mined I have managed to find 5 shards so far.
    I don't know if I'm lucky (or not), but I've been farming quite a bit too.

    Shard drops were only added to farmers in RoR I believe.

    I got a shard today from a crop of Hearty Mushrooms. I'd already gathered 3 stacks of Beans and 3 of Pear's ready for processing with no drops, then the shard dropped on my first crop of 10 mushrooms. (I only ever plant 10 at a time as I find that some of the crops disappear before they get harvested if you plant more than 10?). Nothing from the rest of the mushrooms or from 3 stacks of coffee.

    Also had 3 from ore nodes so far (9 stacks of ore), but none from wood (6 stacks) and none from scholar nodes (4 stacks).

    looks like a dropchance between 0.1 - 1.0%

    Harvested over 2100 ores now and got none so far. 0.1% drop chance is far too much compared to what it really is. While I agree those shouldn't be all too easy to get, this is way too low a drop rate.

    I needed a couple for LI's for kinnies last week so went out "farming" on my lvl89 Forrester Guard and managed to get 6 shards for just over 5 stacks of wood.
    Thinking that the drop rate might have been increased with a recent update took my lvl88 Explorer Burg the following day and for 7 stacks of ore and 9 wood got just 1 shard.

    My lvl95 Hunter has still only ever had 1 shard from Scholar nodes and my Farmer/Cook just the 1.

    The RNG broken?
