Gathering tools

Crafting an apprentice herbalism gathering tool in Alpha-2.[2]

Different professions will have a number of quests available to introduce players to their first toolsets; and then, their toolset sustainability will be incumbent on the player to continue to gather the resources necessary to repeatedly create these tools, because they have a durability that gets expended when interacting with the resources in the open-world.[3]Steven Sharif

Each gathering profession will have three tools. The tools come online as you progress through the profession; and the different resource types for each one of the professions may require different tools. So, you basically want to carry around the right tool for the job. And tools along with artisanship gear will have stats on it, so you can itemize towards how you want to gather, how fast you want to gather.[4]Kory Rice

Gathering tools (also referred to as harvesting tools, artisan tools, and toolsets) enable the gathering of resources in Ashes of Creation.[4][5][6][7]

Tools do advance within the artisan tree, so your ability to either gather, process or craft will require the equivalent tools necessary at that stage of crafting in order to accomplish the task at hand. So, you could not mine copper and mithril with the same tool.[7]Steven Sharif
  • Tools will have durability and lifespans.[3][15][16]
    • The amount of usages of a gathering tool increases as the gatherer becomes more proficient in the gathering artisan tree.[15]
    • Tools may become non-repairable, requiring re crafting.[3][16]
  • Artisans will not need to rely on other trees in order to make their tools.[6]
  • The developers are considering the introduction of gathering tools that require two players, such as two-person saws that can fell larger trees.[13]
Your progression within the profession will take account what tools you can use. There might even be some opportunity to do some gathering with other players that . Typically in other games that I play you usually do the gathering alone. You're venturing around alone; and we wanted to take a look at maybe having a friend to help you with a two person saw on a larger tree. Maybe there's some panning that you could do as opposed to just hitting with the pickaxe. So, we'll have other tools that are part of that progression path and other activities that players can do if they would like to gather together.[7]Kory Rice
