What happened to Pearls and Amber ?

    It recently appeared that friends of mine needed white pearls and fishing nets.
    When they asked me if i had in stock, i just answered no , but dont worry it s a nice opportunity to my fisher to see daylight. (poor man is very pale since he last saw the sun).
    I bravely search my chest to find THE boat and decide to run - as i always did - a daily 1 hour fishing session.
    Ater day 1 i found me unlucky. Got nothing of what i expected... bad lauck did i say or maybe i m too rusty ?
    After a week i didnt laugh at all... NO pearls, 1 green net and enough footwear to equip a full division....

    Thinking of it i just realised that despite i m lumbering every single day I didnt get any brilliant ambers since very long....

    Is anyone knows if they changed the draws for these items ?
    Should i persevere on a daily basis or extend my fishing time ?
    Thanks in advance for your advices and help.

    Not sure if anything has changed, I found pearls to be so incredibly hard to get that I just gave up, I was averaging one per 8 hours fishing.

    I have long given up the quest for pearls.

    I noticed, that since sa draws closer to being released, pearls are just about once amonth, very suspicious of the usages to sa imbuing, or even mysticism, they are mainly used for the much loved pendant of the magi. :)

    Pendant is really a nice item. But i m a bit surprised to see that coming imbuing could have an impact on the actual draw of materials...

    Pearls are very hard to get but even brilliant amber seems not coming as much as before. concerning other gems i also noted that if they still come it s not at the same rate than before.

    Is that possible they changed something in the draws ??

    I just went out for my first lumberjacking expedition in a few weeks and got three brilliant amber in three beetleloads of wood ... maybe I was just lucky, but it was rather startling to see them dropping that quickly.
