    Title: Well of Aldur resource node weirdness
    Reproduction Rate: Always
    Blocker? No
    Details: Well of Aldur foraging nodes (mandrake, etc.) have a very low success probability (e.g. 11%). Should it really be this low to pull a root out of the ground?
    Steps to Reproduce: Harvest Mandrake, Nightshade, Garlic, etc. from any Well of Aldur platform.
    User Specs:
    OS: Windows 10 (10.0.0) 64bit
    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6600 CPU @ 3.30GHz (4) System RAM: 16336
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 GPU RAM: 4053

    it's a tier 14 scene; it should have tier 14 nodes. i'll let @Sannio confirm, but i'm pretty sure this is correct.

    Thanks for the report. I'll ask Bzuz to review the nodes and confirm they're correct. Issue #68704

    Hi Alley Oop / Sannio.
    Since producer xp is capped at tier 5, shouldn't difficulty also be capped at tier 5 or at least shouldn't the node offer a lot more resources or something to compensate for the huge difficulty?
    I don't mind this much for most nodes since even Ulfheim nodes have a reasonable harvesting percentage but seriously: 20% to pull a root out of the ground?!

    I heard tier 5 and tier 6 resource nodes in Chris's stream months ago. Tier 6 node was first added in Tartarus. Didn't heard any resource nodes with higher level than that in stream.

    In theory, that makes perfect sense. In practice, with gathering skills at GM, it means nodes with an 11% chance that take ~20 seconds to harvest (factor in several failures, and that's more like 60-90 seconds) and seem to drop about the same quantity of materials as a t5 node. Admittedly the xp is great, and there are only a handful of them. But if that's working as intended, then they're just there for flavor, because no one in their right mind is ever going to bother.

    Well, we players do tend to do stuff the devs aren't expecting. And I don't know about the flavor of the nodes because I haven't managed to harvest one yet but they're probably not that tasty. ;)

    as of r87, patch 1350, this is seen fixed. nodes in the well of aldur still have a significant difficulty, but not quite THAT hard: 70% chance at level 120.
