The new harvest are marked 96 - 105 and the pack pony and goblin option is 90 - 99. I am wondering if they are gonna be changed to be able to get the new tier of resources. I send them out and they bring back resources labeled as 90 - 99. I also wonder if the resources are gonna be changed to 90 - 95. I know alot of crafters who use pack ponys and goblins to help gather resources when a new tier comes out so this was the first thing i checked when coming to beta.

Yes, the pack pony, gathering goblin, and guild harvesters will all be updated. I don't have an ETA, but it will be done sometime during beta.

If possible, please make the updated ponies/goblins/harvesters require a quest such as "a gathering obsession beyond the grave" was. Those quests garnered a lot of rare mats for me while doing them. And wasnt too much of a chore (although I could kill Qho for making me run all over the Great Divide for samples and souveneirs *) ).

Why would you ask for such a thing? Eek They already said the last GO quest was the final one. Why do you wish more torture on us and yourself? Tongue

I "dislike" your post with 3 thumbs down! Qho grew up. I hired him and sent him in to battle, just to watch him die. Repeatedly. Don't take away my fun! Wink

Because its fun! Besides it would kinda rob the history/lore and would break the chain of the pack pony if you were just handed a tier 10 capable pack pony.

We've never had to do another quest for new tiers of materials from the pony. The 'extra' quests were for the ponies getting rares and holiday mats, not new 'regular' harvests.

I had to do the quest to get the pony (DoV) for t8 mats/rares. I had to do the quest to upgrade it (CoE) for t9 mats/rares (upgraded pack pony). The goblin was an AA ability. I just literally did this quest like last week. So its fresh in my mind.

Would like to see a GO style quest to upgrade the pack pony for t10 mats/rares. It would be ok for a little grind harvesting to get the pony upgraded. Come on you did it the first 2 times. Whats the problem? Do you have to have everything handed to you?

As someone who did the quests as soon as they came out and so saw how the pony progressed when the new tier was added - no, not quite.

When the pack pony was first released, it had T9 rares harvests already (T9 being lvl 80-89). When Whithered Lands was released with new T10 harvests, the pack pony (and guild gatherers) got T10 harvests without any quest necessary. When ToV was released (a year and a half later), we got a quest to update the pack pony so it could harvest rares (like the goblin) and holiday harvests (unique to the upgraded pony).

I also have several crafters who have not upgraded their pack pony yet (saving the quest xp for the new lvl cap), and all of their ponies harvest T10 just fine.

edit: just saw I said the pony had rares v_v

Either way, I hope they add a new qho quest for the new tier of mats/rares. BUT PLEASE DO NOT ADD GM SHARDS/FOUNDATIONS to pony/goblin.

They've already stated that the GM rares will be harvest only and not from goblins, ponies or guild hall harvesters.

Can you please add the 96-105 mats from pony/goblins soon? I waited until this week to start testing even tho all access so some of the things would be worked out. I have all the crafters and would love to do the questline on all of them for the mount but there is no way I have the time to do that much testing AND harvest enough materials for all 9 crafters. I would still like to do all the notd quests on all my alts (not saying how many cuz yeah....).

Second, Please Please Please Please with big sad eyes do NOT bring the little brat or adult version of the brat back in order to harvest the new mats. I would need the vault for marketplace opened up to get me a million more Qho replicas to torture in every single house that still needs decorating. Maybe even one house with a Qho for each tier harvested with a special torture technique like feeding him too much pig meat that he pukes or something.

Might not be the exact place to put this, but I have two questions,

1. What happened to Oliver the TS buffer,
and
2. Like ToV Beta, If I remember correctly you could get harvests from Oliver, will that be added to Beta anytime for AoM?

My Goblin and Pony both seem to think I still need Ripe Mangosteens when I send them for 96-99 harvestables.

Mangosteens are really delicious, can't really blame them! But a fix has been checked in, should be corrected soon. Thanks for noticing that! BigGrin

Thanks, ma'am! I was just coming over to mention that he *loves* mangosteen, and really dislikes hylocereus fruit.

And he utterly ADORES fresh thresher fin, which is really odd for a pony. He brought back 235 of the durn things this last time.

I just thought I was unlucky with my first pull on the Hylocereus Fruit, because I wasn't sure how many I started with, but you are spot on there. Just pulled in a second round and no fruit love. Also just under 900 Fresh Thresher Fins, between two rounds of harvests. So yeah I would have to agree unless this is going to be a sushi heavy expansion, not that I would complain, that may be a tad off. Smile

Yes!!! More than a full stack of fins on each pull from either gatherer is a bit much.

The pony does now do the 96-105 items but does have a problem. He gets all the regular items but Hylocereus fruit instead he bring back Ripe Mangostion . I have checked this out on 3 toons so far and the same all the time.. Hope they get this fixed as I need the fruit to make the new food and drink.

I think the kith peppers are really low too. But maybe it's just because it's from the foody bushes, or I got unlucky, but I got like 120 out of 2 or 3 rounds, compared to 400-500 of most everything else (and 1600 fins)

There are an over-overabundance of fish. Also, pony/goblin/guild harvesters tend to bring back twice as much soft metal (iodocus ore) than they do gems (tourmaline) or the *real* ore (cadmium ore). I suspect that the percentages for cadmium and iodocus need to be swapped. (Two things with an "ore" designation when we're used to only the armor/weapon ore being called "ore" is confusing more than just us, I suspect. BigGrin)
