Gathering Materials in FFXIV Island Sanctuary

When you first arrive at your Island Sanctuary, the Felicitous Furball will instruct you to gather a few basic materials. However, even with Gather mode enabled, it might not be totally obvious as to how you can actually gather items.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. From the Island Sanctuary menu box, click on the little box in the top left corner, and select Gather.

  2. Make sure to bring up your map to find the gathering spots for the tutorial quest.

    This won’t be necessary once you’ve progressed and crafted your first tools, and the gathering nodes will appear on the mini-map as you roam around.

  3. Head to the gathering spots, then right-click the sparkling items that indicate gathering nodes.

Most of the items here can be gathered without any tools. However, once you complete the first tutorial quest for the Felicitous Furball, you’ll start learning how to craft tools, which will give you access to more advanced materials to gather on the island. The gathering process is still the same: just right-click a gathering node when you see it.

That’s all you need to know about how to gather materials in FFXIV Island Sanctuary. Be sure to check out the rest of our FFXIV 6.2 coverage as well, including how to start the new MSQ.
