How to make your way across Eorzea gathering the most valuable items from Botany & Mining.

600+ GP is optimal for maximize your gathering. You want to use Unearth II before your first swing. Hit the appropriate slot you want to mine & then pop Solid Reason/Ageless Words after 1 or 2 more hits. Then use Deep Vigor/Brunt Force for the final hit to guarantee that 100%HQ at the end.


You’ve got 3 hours to get to the Unspoiled Node you want. Even if you are swinging at it while the 3 hour mark expires, the Node will disappear.

GP ticks. 1 min Eorzea time =  5GP. So 300 GP an hour.

Personal Gear Stats:
Mining
Gathering - 347
Perception - 347
GP - 601

Botany
Gathering - 350
Perception - 345
GP - 594

Eorzea TIME (ET) - I use a 24 hour clock in my guide to keep order.

0100

Dragonhead - Darksteel Ore Slot 3
-> 386 (Cost to teleport)
0100 Hawthorne Hut - Crawler Cocoon Slot 4

Mor Dhona - Botany
*These clusters always appear in the same order. All unspoiled nodes always appear in the same slot. You don’t need to spend 300 GP each time searching for the item you want. Just memorize the slot. Here’s an image shortcut.

*If you go after Darksteel Ore & Crawler Cocoon, you’ll have to be super fast to get back to Mor Dhona for this node. You definitely can’t use GP for the clusters. You can just wait to 5AM for the next 1.

0500

Mor Dhona - Botany

(DOWNTIME)

-> 181 *Favorite
0900 Camp Drybone Gold Ore Slot 6 (Burgundy Falls)
-> 427
0900 Camp Dragonhead Spruce Log Slot 6 (Providence Point)
*If you’re fast enough you can get a Cluster Node in Mor Dhona. It will disappear at 1200.

1300

Mor Dhona - Mining (28X$Y12)

Wineport - Dzemael Tomato 

(DOWNTIME)

1700

Mor Dhona - Mining
*this time can be stretched to 1900 to spend more time during DOWNTIME collecting whatever. Then just stick around in Mor Dhona for 9PM Cluster Node.

2100

Mor Dhona - Mining

(DOWNTIME)
-> Beginning

Other than Gold Ore, Crawler Cocoon, Darksteel Ore & Spruce Log(probably after housing is added) I don’t see any value in chasing the other stuff down. It’s cheaper on the MP than you wasting your time collecting something other than Shards, Crystals & Clusters.


 

The LIVE So You Think You Can Gather airs every Thursday at 1PM on Gouki.tv. Tune in & ask me any questions or just follow along to learn all of my gathering tricks.
