So if I understand well, if I have to gather a glimmermoss as a Forager Credo quest, I should abandon and get another one ?

No. The global pool has basically no effect at this point in the world. It only really matters in this range of time

No. The global pool will have effect for rest of the world because big factions (and other botters) will bot all pearls glimmers etc. so ordinary people will never get the access to them.
I boiled hundreds of mussels last world, far after the population had suffered a big decline, and I still didn't find any pearls.

glimmers only get botted early world later its pointless because crafted curios become better.

Really? My glimmers are 1600LPH, can you get 4x4 crafted curios with higher lph than that? :roll:

Pearl diver
PICKED* and Boiled ~700 mussels last night after server crash, got 11 pearls.
PICKED* and Boiled ~500 mussels today, 14 hours after the crash. got 0 pearls

Global pool got drained in less than 14 hours.

Honestly just delete this useless mechanic already.

But based on the Pearl Diver credo, I thought pearls were seeded on harvest, not boil?

pretty much. if global pools actually reset on crashes or restarts id just stockpile shit tons of mussels with a pearl diver and boil them all right after the restart.
