Availability[edit]

is any chance to get it in future? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 91.192.45.235 (talkcontribs) at 18:39, 16 August 2014 (UTC).

There's no way to predict Evon Gnashblade's plans. However, every single infinite-use tool has re-appeared at least once after introduction. The WMP has been made available twice: Jan 2014 and June 2014. So mostly likely, we won't see it for at least six months. Then again, the second anniversary is coming up soon and who knows what offerings lurk in the hearts of Evon's promotional items team. – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 23:13, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Sprocket Chance[edit]

Does anyone know what the "small chance to reward a watchwork sprocket" actually is, percentage-wise? Teknomancer (talk) 02:54, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

I haven't counted recently, but my memory is that I got an average of 3 per 10 "whacks", so 3 from a rich vein or 3 1/3 regulars (without bonus chances). But I only counted for 100-150 whacks before getting bored. – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 05:26, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
I came here to ask the same question, but I'll take notes over the next few weeks and post results for those who are interested.~Miss Lana 22:27, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
I monitored how many sprockets I got over the past few days and in total it came to 962 sprockets to 2818 uses. This equates to a little over 34% chance to get a sprocket with each use.~Miss Lana 03:43, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
1/3 seems to be the chances for what I've seen when using it. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 11:39, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
I was farming platinum, got 70 platinum and 22 watchwork sprockets, will keep updating with more information. [[Bastthegatekeeper]]] 3:39 03 May 2015 (UTC)The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.210.235.149 (talk) at 03:39, 3 May 2015 (UTC).
I've done the research over 2 weeks and 40 characters. I think I've got what we need here, but thanks. 124.170.215.64 21:40, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Themed Set Inconsistency[edit]

Is there any reason why only a mining pick was released within this line of tools? Other tools always released all 3 mining, logging and harvesting tools for each new theme of tools. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mechzy (talkcontribs) at 11:37, November 9, 2016 (UTC).

There are other themed sets that are incomplete (for the time being), such as the Cosmic set, or tools that are no part of a set. Is there a reason? Perhaps, perhaps not. We sadly cannot tell. I'd be almost willing to bet neither can ArenaNet. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 14:07, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
