Hope someone in Trion responds this time.
Elm is becoming or has become somewhat non-existent.
We all know that is the case.
What limited threads that have occurred to discuss it, referred to Ardent Domain's Witch area as a regular spawn area - spent the day there , 1 timber, in 2 hours , sorry, its like all the nodes I recorded while exploring all the zones while leveling to Grandmaster Foraging - dried up or spawns changed to Madrosa.
Please Trion, respond....crafting quests are calling for more and more use of Elm, and yes the AH is having a supply, but there are many of us who do not wish to live off the AH, and wish to do what we do and actually Gather our own supplies.
Either cut out the quests or bring back those nodes that used to spawn regularly with Elm , or increase spawns elsewhere in those large empty zone areas in Seratos, Morban, Steppes, Ashora; and even some lower areas.
