Hey, I don't know if this have been suggested or mentioned before, if so, my bad. If not, shame on you
It's sort of simple, in my (simple) mind, the wild plant fiber gathering is.. horrible really. there is a chance to fail even when mastery is achieved, meaning you can look at your character swinging away.. at grass for three attempts before actually gathering .. one piece of ''wild grass fiber''. I wouldn't say that is a feature at all... So, as an easy fix, how about adding an algorithm, making it possible to colect, say 0-3 pieces of ''wild grass fiber'' instead of one at the time.. I could make a long argument of the pro's and con's but I think it's pretty self explanatory, that new players in particular would agree that a grass slapping simulator doesn't contribute to a fun game. It's rather tedious when it doesn't have to be. Furthermore, adding the possibility of gathering 3 at the time and still keeping the option of failing, would still keep it realistic would it not? Again 0-3 or 0-X doesn't really matter as long as X>1 in order to avoid the tedious lawnmower simulator.
