Overview

Miner Disciplines of the Land

Miners are responsible for the excavation and handling of Eorzea's mineral wealth, be it ores, fossils, precious stones, or otherwise. To fully master the advanced techniques developed by the great mining nation of Ul'dah, they undertake a wide range of tasks, from the meticulous prospecting of the most minute deposits to large-scale civil engineering. Many miners subscribe to the theory of continental drift, and take for their patron deity Oschon the Wanderer.

Joining a Discipline of the Land

Once you reach level 10 in the class you chose when starting the game, you can take on a new quest. Clearing this quest will allow you to join guilds for other classes.

To become a miner, find and join the Miners' Guild at the Steps of Thal in Ul'dah (X:11.3 Y:14.3).

(After entering a guild, you must equip the tool of the class you want in order to change your class.)

Miner & Botanist Key Features

Disciples of the Land are able to collect materials from the land within their areas of expertise.

Miners are a gathering class that can collect ores and precious metals from mineral deposits and rocky outcrops.
Botanists can harvest timber, fruit, and other plant products from mature trees and lush vegetation patches.
Leveling up in these classes will expand the areas you can harvest and help you find rarer materials.

Gathering

Getting Started

Miners and botanists can collect resources from gathering points such as mineral deposits and mature trees.
Your class determines from which locations you can gather resources.

The miner action Lay of the Land and the botanist action Arbor Call will help you find new spots for gathering.
You can look up which locations yield which items using your gathering log.

  • Miners: Mineral Deposits & Rocky Outcrops

    (You must equip a sledgehammer to collect resources from rocky outcrops.)

  • Botanists: Mature Trees & Lush Vegetation Patches

    (You must equip a scythe to collect resources from lush vegetation patches.)

Gathering Tips

Target a gathering point to see what items you can harvest from it.

Select the item you want to begin collecting.

Collection success is based on your gathering rating. When gathering, there is a chance of triggering the Gatherer's Boon effect, which grants an additional item.

As you gather resources from a gathering point, it will begin to show wear regardless of whether your collection was successful or not. You can continue to use a location until you consume all of its gathering attempts.

Collectables

Miner & Botanist Collectable Items

As a Disciple of the Land, you may be required to barter items called collectables.

These items each have a collectability rating, and those with higher collectability will earn you better rewards.

Certain collectables can also be converted into other materials with aetherial reduction.

A collectable's type and collectability both influence the type and number of items to which it can be reduced.

Gathering Miner & Botanist Collectables

While on the gathering screen, select an item with the collectable mark to switch to the collectable gathering window. From there, you can gather collectables.

Raise Collectability with Scour

There are three actions you can perform to increase item collectability: Scour, Brazen Prospector/Woodsman, and Meticulous Prospector/Woodsman.
Use the Collect action after performing one of these actions to gather an item with a higher collectability.

(When you use a collectable action and Collect from a gathering point, it will begin to show wear. Once its gathering counter reaches 0, gathering will end.)

Raise Collectability with Scrutiny and Collector's Standard

Using Scrutiny before a Scour-related action will strengthen that action's effects.

After using a Scour-related action, you have a chance of gaining the Collector's Standard effect. While this effect is active, brazen and meticulous actions will be significantly more effective.
