Gathering is the method of obtaining raw materials used for many Life skills.


  • Most gathering skills can be made more efficient by training the respective skill.
  • Gathering requires a specific Gathering Tool to be equipped or the hands to be empty, based on the item being gathered.
    • Same-type Weapons can be substituted for Gathering Tools. For example, any Sword can be used instead of a Gathering Knife to shear the sheep found near most towns.
    • Gathering reduces an item's Durability much faster than Combat, so it is recommended that players only use Gathering Tools to save money on purchases and repairs.
  • Gathering skills consume Stamina at a rate of 1 point per second.
    • This means that reducing a tool's gathering time through upgrades will also reduce the Stamina required to gather a material.
    • Stamina still regenerates while gathering is in progress, making stamina consumption less drastic.
    • You must have at least 3 Stamina to execute any gathering skill, regardless of how much Stamina that skill will consume.
  • All Life Skill Talents provides experience upon successful gathering.

Success Rates

  • Gathering success rates are increased by Alban Heruin (Wednesday) and rainy weather.
  • Dexterity does not influence gathering rates.
  • Rain also increases the amount of materials that can be gathered at one location.
  • Success rates for gathering elementals will always be 100%.

Gathering speed and limits

  • All gathering objects have a limited number of resources that regenerate over time.
    • Attempting to gather further than the limit will display a fail message and still consume the durability of the tool used to gather.
  • Gathering efficiency can be increased by Upgrading gathering tools, although not all gathering tools can be upgraded.
    • Upgrades can reduce the base gathering time, add a chance to obtain two materials in one drop, or increase the probability of receiving a specific material out of many.
    • Note that increasing Combat stats on gathering tools, such as balance or critical, will not influence gathering.


Tool gathering

  • In most cases, only one specific tool may be used to collect items from their corresponding resources.

See Category:Gathering Tools for more information.

Elemental gathering

Ice Elemental Harvest.png Fire Elemental Harvest.png Lightning Elemental Harvest.png
  • Elementals may be harvested from Sprites.
  • A Wand of the corresponding element must be equipeed. The right-hand slot must be empty.
  • Sprites have up to 20 elementals and regenerate 1 Elemental every minute.
    • It is best to just kill it and find another Sprite instead of waiting on the regeneration rate.
  • Double right-click the Sprite and choose "Gather." Harvesting an elemental will take 2.0 seconds.
  • Harvesting fails if the Sprite moves before the skill is complete, or if the Sprite is out of Elementals.
  • The Sprite will still aggro you, so harvest at your own risk.
    • A useful strategy is to have another player keep the Sprite distracted while you harvest. Play Dead after being aggroed is useful for this purpose. Alternatively, you may have the other player hide behind an obstacle, a Campfire, or a Camp Kit. As an Elf, you can Hide after every harvest.
  • Sprites can be found in Math Advanced Dungeon, Coill Dungeon, and on Ceo Island.

Empty-handed Gathering

  • These resources may be obtained by having the player manually collect them, without requiring the use of a tool.
