Hey Helfdone, Im going to say it here and in the Book of References, when searching for Herbs its not like fishing, your better off using all of your stamina at once, you get a better yeild.

Think its because you dont have Armentia the herbalist with you. Plus...spend a few days out, not go out and in, that way she costs you less.

In my early days, I was finding around 26 herbs with her, but Im going to do a test again and see if its still correct. (but I kept records and thats what my notes say).

You have spent 80 stamina searching for herbs.
You have found 5 herbs:
- 1 Willow Anther (common).
- 1 Moon Stone (uncommon).
- 1 Vitalizing Gold Flower (rare).
- 1 Stoneflower (rare).
- 1 Nettle (common).
You gained 0.8 experience on your Herbalism Skill.

Even worse today, though I did manage to find a Vitalizing Gold Flower. Not sure if that was coincidence or not, but I am convinced that spending 10 stamina at a time is more worthwhile than a large sum.

I'll go back to 10 stamina the next time and update.

idk what to say...cept either somethings changed, or the herb gather really does make a difference. Because at less than your skill level, Im pretty sure after frustrating days of getting only 2 to 3 per 10 to 20 stamina, I switched to spending the full amount and was getting somewhere like 26 herbs at a time.

You have spent 90 stamina searching for herbs.
You have found 13 herbs:
- 6 Red Berry (common).
- 2 Deadly Monkshade (common).
- 1 Willow Anther (common).
- 1 Vitalizing Gold Flower (rare).
- 3 Nettle (common).
You gained 0.72 experience on your Herbalism Skill.

Pretty decent finds using a large chunk of stamina at once. My previous luck with using 10 at a time may just be coincidence.

The stamina you use has no effect on the chance. Every time you spend 1 stamina, you get a certain chance on finding a herb.

Spending more stamina just generates more chances to find a herb.

So spending 100 times 1 stamina or spending 1 time 100 stamina, is exactly the same Smile
