FFXIV - Disciples of Land - Botanist
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.

Below is a list of FFXIV: ARR abilities for the Botanist class up to level 50. All of the Botanist's abilities use 0 MP or TP and have 0 cast time, however they use Gathering Points (GP) instead.




Actions


Actions are skills that the Botanist can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available. Actions used in a combo will generate additional damage and effects. All Botanist actions are exclusive to that job.

I usually don't post comments on these sites, but I have to say, pal, I find all of the information posted here extremely useful. Anytime I want to find something out, this is the first place I come to, so thanks for all the effort you put into it!

It's worth noting for anyone new that gathering nodes do not reappear where you last gathered. As you empty one out a new one will appear in the nearby vicinty. This is to stop bots from camping the same tree.

I'm not sure if you have it planned but might be worth adding locations of each guild and who you need to speak with to the pages. Really good though
