Gathering is the process of either mining metals or extracting oils from plants. Gathered metals and oils are used to sharpen/infuse weapons or upgrade buildings.
Gathering is improved by double. Uncommonly, you may also find "great finds" increasing your yield an additional 25%, 50%, or x2.
Rarely, globals may be found with a large quantity of material in it. The amount is based on the level of your gathering profession.

Milestones are earned for gaining levels of proficiency with whatever gathering profession you may be doing.
Milestones may be a requirement for higher-area trade-skilling (i.e. Master Mining).
