    EDIT: I will not update it cause there is a site/tool which is way more useful and has all the materials you can gather, how many you need for each profession and all the crafting quests and it is

    This is mostly a plan of what to gather and where in order to level Miner/Botanist and get usefull materials. Note that Nodes are increasing by 5 levels each time and you can only see the node when you are not more than 4 levels below the level of the node. So you can see and gather from Level 25 node when you are level 21+, e.t.c.

    Also a level 25 node might have gathering materials from Lv21 to Lv25. I am saying this because in my guide I will have the level of the material not the level of the node, but you will be able to know the level of the node if you know the level of the material. Level x node have level (x-4) to x material. So lets go :)

    Also note that every material might have use by multiply crafting classes. I will add the crafting that makes the most use of the material and not all the crafting that might also need it.

    Nice post, and thanks for sharing.

    I am approaching level 31 on my Botanist, and I think this is a nice little guide for these grinding levels. The only thing I don't like about Grey Pigments is no HQ :( They sell fairly decently though on the MB typically.

    Thanks :) Of course you can level to 31 just with Walnut log, Chamomile and Millioncorn. I just thought that geting 1-2 stacks of grey pigment for the black dye would be nice too :)

    Absolutely. I ended up grabbing quite a few pigments and some crystals while I was there. I did spend the majority of my time getting Walnut logs because I am leveling Carpenter as well, though it is not quite as high as my Weaver. Saved some Chamomile and corn for my wife, who just stared cooking. :D

    imho when you reach 30+ the grind is ridiculous.
    i prefer grinding levequests. well do u recieve any items but gill. But anyway the lowlvl items aren't worth anymore

    I have updated the 26-31 levels and included Crystals that required for dyes and several items in later crafting levels. Also it is a good way to complete your gatherer achievements in 3 main areas :).

    "Add any suggestions you have" ...

    - I was wondering about those 3 skills I got that get me 2x crystals for 400 GP:

    20 [​IMG] Nald'thal's Ward
    20 [​IMG] Byregot's Ward
    20 [​IMG] Thaliak's Ward

    Do I need to get better gear? I have 360 GP (roughly; am level 20 or 21 now) so it is not even near a comfortable amount to casually toss 400 around for a 6 more crystals.

    Well basically what I would like to know... what gear do you use? Or should I forget about the 2x crystals?

    These are the items you need for the quests (level - item - x{amount} (grade)):
    • 01 - Latex x1
    • 05 - Bone Chip x50
    • 10 - Obsidian x99
    • 15 - Cinnabar x10 (HQ)
    • 20 - Grade 1 Carbonized Matter x99
    • 25 - Effervescent Water x15 (HQ)
    • 30 - Wyvern Obsidian x15 (HQ)
    • 35 - Raw Amethyst x20 (HQ)
    • 40 - Jade x20 (HQ)
    • 45 - Electrum Ore x20 (HQ)
    • 50 - Darksteel Ore x3

    @Rinzwind Don't worry in some levels, and especially at level 26 where you will be able to mine the crystals, you will have 400gp from the passive GP increase...the best way to farm shards is to make a new character and level all crafting to level 10 and do the lv 1,5,10 quests. You can buy all the materials needed from vendor and by the time you will be level 10 and able to learn the crafting classes you will have more gil than needed to do this...It took me 1 day to do this and managed to get 1500+ from each shard :)

    Now I found a site which is very very useful and far better than this little "guide". I have added it to my first post

    Hello! Thanks for the guide, but I have a question. I'm trying to gather noble grapes to level up cooking, but i've searched all over around Upper La Noscea and I cannot find any node. Why is this? Is it because I'm a level 18 Botanist at the moment?

  13. Rohirrim4

    Rohirrim4 Adventurer

    @Maiku Yes this is the problem :) You will be able to see the node at level 21. See it like this.
    A level 25 Node may contain materials of level 21-25. In order to see the node and gather from it you will need to be level 21. Al evel 25 node cannot have a level 26 material. A level 30 node can have materials with level 26-30 and you can see the node if you are at least level 26.

    So Noble Grapes are Lv22 Material. That mean the it is contained in a level 25 Botanist node. Hope I explained it well enough :)
