OK, here's my rant.

Does anyone else find foraging seriously annoying since they "enhanced" it a few months back? I'm tired of foraging up stuff you can't eat everytime I hit the forage button. It's so bad that I have to buy and make my own food and water now when before I used to give food/water away to friends. And forget about foraging on the moon. You can't forage food or water to save your life there.

What kind of useless skill is this when we forage up feathers all the time. I'm sick of the "You are low on food" "You are low on drink" messages. grrrr

Sorry /rant off

I haven't foraged for food or drink in months. You end up wasting an entire 10 slot just keeping your food.

I just wish they'd let us take foraging over 200 and make the refresh time reduce as you skilled up over 200.

I don't forage unless I'm looking for drake eggs or something.

Jummjumm juice is sold at the druid stand in RV. It's a refreshing drink. 3 stacks of these and you're set for 2-3 weeks of playing.

I spent the last few nights hunting in Dawnshroud and ME and walked off with a bag full of foraged food. Yes, granted I foraged more feathers than food it seems, but I'm still self sustained plus was able to give food way to others. *shrug*

Forage is my numero uno skill :)
I hit it all the time, regardless of where I am, and just destroy anything I don't like :)
I still give out food to friends and even passing by group members I'm so full of it. Food that is.
Granted, there are some very annoying places like SF (grrr globes) and other stuff you can't drop which makes you have to open your inventory to hit destroy and then accept, but on the whole I have plenty of food, and those mushrooms you forage on the moon are sellable to peeps wishing to get their cooking up. I've sold a stack of it for 200pp. Not bad for hitting a button while running through a few zones :)

Ciao for now!

Foraging rocks, but I don't use it for food. Well, sorta kinda. I've gotten a little bit interested in tradeskills, so spending a lot of time in Luclin, I love mushrooms. Odabah Truffles rock. Couple days worth of raids and I get around 200 shrooms to work with. Granted this usually only nets me about 4 skill upgrades. :P

I usually dont have a problem, never out of food, but I am tired of hacking up dire wolf furballs, whats that about?

What, you don't like foraging bone chips in The Grey? :b

My only flame on this ...

Is that Verant had said, more or less, that when they last changed foraging you would be more likely to forage water when you were low on water or food when you were low on food.

I remember thinking "oh great cool!"

Has anyone actually found this to be true? I do seem a bit less likely to get grubs, but I don't seem any more likely to get say water than a root when I am dying of thirst.

Only time I'd heavily forage is in WW or ToV, all my warrior/rogue friends LOVE getting stacks of 20 wyvern and dragon eggs from me after a long day of raiding :)

Actually, I think it was that you are guaranteed to forage water if you're getting the "You are thirsty" message. Same for food.. So far, this seems to be the case for me.
