    I've marked up a book of 16 trees that gave lots of wood, in fel. I try to go through the book once a day. The first run through gave me 374 frost logs. I honestly never thought I would hit a frost tree, so crazy!. :p

    Catship, according to Draconi, even taking 10, triggers the chance for the tree to change. That it's not changed yet is luck, not "leaving some in the tree".

    What is the big deal on frost wood? I have lots of it and its pretty much worthless I use it for library turn ins mainly and keep about 1000 on hand for the rare item I want to mod

    For those that can't find it regularly, it's not worthless at all. If you're so burdened with it spread it around :D Many people would love to find a frost tree.

    @OP: Grats!

    The main reason why wood got nerfed WAS Frostwood - it's worth 48 points a board at the Vesper Museum Collection, and at one of the NPCs at the Britain Library collection. When the trees weren't random, most of the Frostwood trees were locked up by unattended macroers (unless you could beat them back to the respawn) who were using the wood to get mass quantities of Library talismans and the high-end Museum Replicas (which they sold for gold or RL money).

    The frost tree only lasted a couple days, I think maybe someone else found it or I just got unlucky with a quick turn over, I maybe chopped it ten times. Ah well, it was nice while it lasted!

    Lucky.I hadn't found a frostwood tree since the change and 2 nights ago I was hiting around a few trees and saw the message you "you chop some frostwood logs and put them in your pack" and I was like WOO HOO, Until I saw how many logs I got. I got 10 logs total and the tree changed to oak the next time it refreshed.:sad3::(
