    No.

    1 per swing unless you have a yield+ skill.

    I mean technically yes the elemental resistance is directly related to the Yield Increase trait. I don't know if Botanists have it but Miners get that trait.

    MIN/BTN have the same traits (different names, same effect).

    Also, when you're 50, you meet the threshold for every single whisperer trait without even trying.

    I think the yield+ nodes are specifically only those in the 26-30 whatever range that give dyes and crystals, so meh.

    Does level 50 allow me more attempts at each node? Currently at 30 and only being able to do 4 attempts at the ones available to me is kinda painful (gathering shards).

    Nope, just the ward skills.

    The level 30 nodes are best place for shards. Go to wherever your log tells you to get crystals of that element and there will be a yield+1 node. Level 20 ward skill is best use of GP but if you're too lazy to level the other DoL to 20 there's a 500 GP yield+2 buff later on.

    This is exactly how I farm mine. It's still slow, but definitely the fastest way of farming them. I just pick 3 nodes, with one being the +1 gathered node, and rotate between those 3 using the ward skill anytime I can on the +1 node.

    It doesn't matter which node you use the ward skill on in this case, it's +8 crystals gathered regardless.

    This is good to know, I thought shards were only at low [under level10] nodes because right now that is all I have unlocked.

    Gathering fire shards at the moment and I'm getting 16 from the node with gathering yield +1 + the ward buff.

    edit: Derp, I see what you mean. Too tired for math. But yeah, level 30 nodes are still best, since you're getting 8 from one of the nodes without the ward buff lol.
