Gathering

Gathering

Fans of Etrian Odyssey will recognise the idea of gathering. Basically, as a supplement to money earned by beating bad guys, you can gather items from certain shiny nodes in various dungeons to get items you wouldn’t normally find anywhere else. You won’t be able to see the nodes until you get the corresponding gather ability. There are three – mining (for rocks/ minerals), investigation (for plants), and ruins (gives textual information). In addition to using these for money, some are required to unlock weapons and others are required to complete quests. You begin with the ability to gather five times a day, which can be augmented through completing certain quests and/or with the healer skill “great worker”.
