—Online Description

FFXIV Botanist IconThe Botanist (園芸師, Engei Shi?) is a Disciple of the Land in Final Fantasy XIV.

OverviewEdit

The botanist's profession encompasses the procurement of resources from all forms of plant life. This includes harvesting various vegetables and grains, tending to fruit-bearing trees, gathering wild grasses, cultivating fibrous plants for use in textiles, cutting lumber to supply the carpentry trade, and more.

This wide range of raw materials draws the custom of various other guilds, notably the Carpenters', Weavers', Alchemists', and Culinarians'. Botanists also attempt to educate others about the importance of achieving a symbiotic relationship with Eorzea's plants, rather than carelessly stripping them of their useful parts. This is perhaps best exemplified by the revolutionary irrigation methods devised by Gridania, which first made low-impact, high-yield crop propagation possible. The primary tool of the botanist is the hatchet.

Logging treesEdit

With a Hatchet equipped, the player cab harvest materials from trees by locating a node, then right-clicking to interact with it. A menu will then pop-up listing possible materials along with the percentage chance the player will successfully harvest them. Each attempt allows the player to select a material.

The player has a limited amount of attempts to gather as each attempt, successful or not, lowers the node's health bar. After a successful gather, the player is rewarded with experience points toward leveling up the Botany class. It is also possible to get chained experience bonuses when gathering in succession.
