The in-game description (and the one here, though I hope this gets added) doesn't tell you everything. Botanist doubles ALL gatherable plants, even the ones for research points(tested with butterbur and the frozen plants) showing 2x per cycle and double the points. With butterburs this leads to min. 180 points if you only get young ones(30 points each, 2 per cycle with 3 cycles).
Awe it's so hard to find, like, I've been farming AT Deviljho for 200 months and I still haven't gotten the Jewel, it is impossible to find, I hate RNG, I hate this gmae, and if you have more than a single "Insert Jewel Here" then I also hate you!
Hello Adrian Aranda Here. so if i'm understanding this Botanist Ability it's only for Material farming purposes or is there other application on the game ? . Regards
