Harvesting sickles are a type of gathering tool used to harvest plant resource nodes to obtain ingredients.

Gathering tool[edit]

Primary article: Gathering tool

Players equip a harvesting sickle in the Foraging equipment slot. As a gathering tool, harvesting sickles have a required level and number of charges. A standard set of harvesting sickles are purchased from merchants and come with 50 charges. Harvesting sickles purchased from vendors are Account Bound and can be moved between characters. The required level of the harvesting sickle corresponds to a tier, where the tier of harvesting sickle required to harvest a plant node depends on the type of plant. Any harvesting sickle that is greater than the required tier can be used to harvest the node. The requirement generally scales with the level of the zone; if a player is in a 60-80 zone, the player will need a Mithril Harvesting Sickle or better to harvest plant nodes in the zone.

Resource node[edit]

Primary article: Gathering#Resource nodes

Harvesting sickles are used to harvest plant resource nodes. Plants can be harvested once and give 1-2 ingredients based on the type of plant. Unlike other resource nodes, there is a group of plant nodes for each tier and the type of plant varies with individual zones. For example, Orrian Truffle can only be found in the Ruins of Orr region. Players have a chance to receive a Dandelion Blossom or Unidentified Dye. Harvesting plant with a lower tier harvesting sickle will give Ruined Plant Fiber.
