I am sure I could search harder in the forums and other information, but I am admittedly being lazy as I am sure someone will know this right away.

The Northwest passage card increases CdB speed by 20%. Does that effectively increase gathering rate by 20% as well, or is it only walking speed that is increased?

Thanks.

Only walking rate but that indirectly increases gathering speed.

I wouldn't use it. 3 CdB is by far a better card.

So it does or it doesn't? I've always wondered this xD.

Poeple on plantations gather faster coz they walk 20% faster etc?

Maybe not on plantations, but at least while hunting or chopping.

Not an effect great enough to waste a card on though.

Is it worth it for the bonus damage vs guardians, then? Does it allow you to get all the treasures on the map in the first few minutes with a force of some 3-5 CdB? And is it worth sending the card then? ?

I'm afraid this will turn out to be a rhetoric question...

Better to have them gathering resources because you will end up with more resources if 3-5 coureur des bois gather rather than treasure hunting

It would make them gather hunts faster, move from tree tp tree faster, move to the next mine faster....

If your cdbs are near guardians (gathering eg food or wood there), then it could be good to have this card and be able to kill these guardians and take treasure.
