Gathering Nodes

Gathering items as a Miner happens at appropriate gathering nodes. Each node has several different items it is possible to gather from it. As you gain levels for Miner, your Gathering Log is filled with general details of the items it is possible to gather in each level range, and as you manage to gather a certain type of item more details are recorded. As such, the Log can be used to quickly track down where to gather a certain type of items when the need arises.
In version 1.x there was no Log available, you simply had to remember where to go to gather the items you needed.

See details of the miner gathering nodes here.
