Gathering is the process of collecting items which can be used as ingredients for Crafting.

The items that can be gathered are plants, ore and ether. Tools are not needed to gather these items.

The higher the gathering proficiency, the greater the variety of objects one can gather (gathering levels are shown below).

Gathering locations for plants, ores and ether can be toggled on and off in the Minimap.
