Gathering in Dragon's Dogma is the act of collecting raw materials or items from objects found in the environment.

The places from which objects can be collected are oft known as Gather Spots.


A gatherable object is indicated by a slight glow or shimmer on the object - approach such an object and gather to collect items.

There are no special tools required to gather, unlike mining from Ore deposits; gathering from fish pools (fishing) is a special case of gathering, but is done in much the same way.

There are several items that can be gathered from including fallen logs, bags and sacks, and odd corners here and there. In general several objects can be gathered from a single object, and pawns will also gather if unoccupied. Once an object has been gathered from it will be a few days before items can be got from it again.

Types of gather spot


  • Low value, decayed, or mundane items are commonly found, but occasionally rare things turn up - a Cyclops Sigil (value over 200,000 Gold) has been unearthed in one of the chambers of The post-Dragon Everfall from an uninspiring patch.
  • The Dark Arisen augment Acquisition increases the speed of gathering.
  • To gather from a gather spot approach the area and press the 'interact button' i.e. the B or O (circle) button. The Arisen will appear to root around in the area before retrieving an item.
