My Time at Portia Wiki

Gathering refers to obtaining crafting materials by picking up materials on the ground that are scattered around Portia. Gathering does not require a special tool and uses very little Stamina. Some items "sparkle" to easily identify a gatherable item.

Occasionally, some characters may pick up items; for instance, Dr. Xu gathers Herbs within the outer walls near Central Plaza during his morning routine.
