Question: Why do I need to wait for a second whole cycle of <insert gathering skill> to complete a meticulous collection? It would seem to me that if I did roll a "bonus" on the collection that I'm actually being penalized as I now have to wait twice as long to complete the action. I get the idea behind why we wait for the cycle twice - but I truly think it comes off as a penalty. I'd like to suggest a compromise between the two. The animation for a swing of the pickaxe seems to take about ~2 seconds to complete. Using this as a baseline, my suggestion would be to add ~4 seconds (two swings) to the gathering time per level of meticulous collection. This way we still wait a bit longer to get the extra resources... but it's not an obnoxious event to behold. Thanks for reading!
