Introduction

The botanist's profession encompasses the procurement of resources from all forms of plant life. This includes harvesting vegetables and grains, tending fruit-bearing trees, cultivating fibrous plants, logging timber, and more.
Botanists also endeavor to educate others about the need to maintain a symbiotic relationship with Eorzea's plants, rather than carelessly stripping them of their useful parts. Owing to their intimacy with nature, botanists are known to revere Nophica, the goddess of abundance.

[1]

Botanists are Disciples of the Land that harvest resources from flora throughout Eorzea. The materials they collect are used by various crafting classes, including Carpenters, Weavers, Culinarians, and Alchemists.
