Gathering is the Primary Trade skill used to 'Gather' Materials from Nodes scattered around the Open World.
In order to gather the Materials from Node you require a tool based on the nodes you are gathering. 'The Right tool for the right job' (Elemental Crystal Nodes are an exception to this roll same as some Quest based Nodes)
Gather a 'Phat' Node yields you 2x more Materials and EXP and any spawn has a chance to be 'Phat'
You CAN NOT Fail a gather.
