    If any of your stats change - troop speed troop load, etc - due to changes in equipment or titles or boosts ANY time during your gathering, they come home early.

    Just another pat on the back to give wb! It's a trash system that could get fixed with some simple math, but at this point we all know better than to even ask. It's been like this since the beginning of the game, and they haven't done anything about it yet.

    I did some testing yesterday on this very topic. While I didn't completely exhaust the gathering tiles I tested with a variety of scenarios including:

    1. Starting gathering with appropriate gear and leaving it on through the test period
    2. Starting gathering with appropriate gear, changing it during the gathering and then putting it back on before recalling
    3. Starting gathering with hunting gear and changing it to gathering gear right before recalling
    4. Starting gathering with appropriate gear and then switching to hunting right before recalling
    5. Starting gathering with hunting gear and not switching

    I let each one go for 30 minutes before recalling. In the first three scenarios the amount gathered was essentially the same where the amount in the last two was significantly less. Based on this testing it appears that the timer is created based on the bonus when the march arrives at the tile. The amount gathered is based on the bonus at the time the march returns. What I don't know yet is how load factors into this. But since timers are immutable if the bonus when the timer expires is less than the bonus when it first arrived you will not exhaust it. My assumption is that even if the bonus goes up during the gathering time the march will stay the entire time. For example, without my gathering gear it takes ~5:30 to fully gather from a level 6 lumber mill, with gear it takes ~4:45; if I send a march without gathering gear and then switch to it at any point the march will stay for the entire ~5:30.

    When you march to to node with gathering gear on you can change your gear at anytime once your march is there. Just before the node is finished make sure you change it back to gathering gear. It’s dumb I know but we are the dummies for playing
