    In the 1.19 update, the devs added gathering posts. These would give xp when players brought a certain number pf materials to the gathering post. However, these miniquests do not change much in professions gameplay, their only use being to make grinding professions slightly faster,

    Therefore, my proposal is to turn the otherwise bland and mundane miniquest into a minigame that will hopefully make gathering less boring.

    Basically, it gives players a time limit to collect a certain number of tokens (specific to the gathering post, drops instead of resources during the minigame.) An example would be having to collect a certain number of oak wood tokens in a certain amount of time.
    1.The Player would approach the post, and upon right-clicking it, have the option to choose between three difficulty modes, each giving different amounts of xp.(Easy, Normal, Hard).

    2. Upon choosing the mode, the player has to pay a certain number of emeralds (depends on the post and the difficulty). Then, the timer starts and will be shown on screen as a title. The number of tokens left to collect is shown below the title. During this time, the refining chance is 100 percent.

    3. Upon collecting the desired number of tokens, the timer will automatically stop and the player will be teleported to the post and receive his reward(profession xp).

    4. However, if the timer runs out before the player has completed his objective, the player will be teleported to the post and receive nothing.

    6. The minigame is repeatable, as long as the player pays the emeralds required every time he plays.

    Additional notes: The higher the difficulty, the higher the emerald cost, tokens needed and xp given. The difficulty does not affect time taken.

    Note:

    1. I did not add the numerical values, as they differ with each gathering post.

    2. This, along with slaying posts could be renamed training post or something similar. This could help fit them somewhat into some lore.

    3. Some advantages for the features in the minigame: Different levels adding an incentive for replying the game, tokens added to separate normal resources from those used for the minigame to prevent cheating, emerald price to discourage players from abusing them.

    4. A similar system could be used for slaying posts, but i focused on gathering miniquests cause they are more boring.


    This minigame should act as a profession version of quests and dungeons, and hopefully make it more fun to grind professions.

    Thanks for reading and feedback is appreciated.

    I think the idea could MAYBE work, but I feel as tho tokens are a dumb idea to have in this, and the mini game idea actually. I think it should just be changed so that you can choose between the 3 difficulties and have to gather more but get more xp, if anything at all should change bc I like the system as it is mostly lol

    Well, this idea is based off the fact that people find the gathering grind boring and unfun, due to it relying on no skill, unlike grinding for combat xp. At least people require some skill to complete the game, by gathering quickly. And tokens are there to make sure that people dont cheat by using resources they had gathered before.

    If you are saying minigames dont belong, then I have to respectfully disagree. After all, they do exist in the form of dungeons and Zhight Island. And WF was removed due to it dying as the gameplay had no impact on the main game.

    If you like the system as it is, then I respect your opinion, and hope you do well in life.

    Gathering is optional, so it doesn’t have to be fun. It’s literally a mechanic for players that have “completed” the game and are looking for something more challenging.

    just because something is optional doesnt excuse it being boring and unfun
    waving professions off as just a "mechanic for players who have 'completed' the game" completely misses the point
    professions might suck as they are now, but that doesnt mean they cant be made better
    /rant over

    oh yeah i like the suggestion too
