Villagers and Heroes Wiki

Gathering is how most materials for crafting are acquired. There are four gathering skills, with each gathering skill level capped the current max level.

The four gathering skills are:

Each gathering skill has a Gathering tool and associated Supplies.

When gathering, in addition to the item being gathered, nodes will also give you supplies, Mote of Yorick, Gems, a rare gather depending on if you are gathering in the village or wild, and repair globules.

Plentiful nodes give increased rare gatherings and better chance on materials and supplies compared to "normal" nodes i.e. plentiful1 nodes give more rare gatherings and better chance on materials and supplies with 4-5X the experience.

Leveling up in any gathering skill gives a buff called Villager Insight.
