How to Gather

Methods of gathering will vary based on the gathering point.

Gathering with hands

Gather materials without the use of staff/gathering tools.

Gathering using a staff

Gather by hitting with a swing of the staff.
By holding down the button in front of certain gathering points, like some trees, you can perform a charged swing. This allows you to gather a large amount of materials at once.

Gathering with Gathering Tools

Gather by using the gathering tool needed for that gathering point.

Gathering Tools

Some of the gathering points will only allow you to gather materials if you have the appropriate gathering tool equipped, like a Fishing Rod or Grass Sickle.
Gathering tools can be checked/equipped using "Items" in the Main Menu.

Gathering Rank

Gathering rank indicates your experience with each gathering method.
The higher your gathering rank, the more rare materials you will find at a gathering point.
