Wearing gear that helps gathering.

Is there equipment you can wear that improves gathering amounts while running around farming materials?

I thought I've come across that before, but I'm having trouble finding information about what sets or if they even exist.

    Only in terms of going faster.

    Any of the speed boosting gear works, I like Darkstride myself, because I like being able to run forever. Very useful in busy zones where sometimes I have to run around someone to get ahead of them on my farming route.

    Another viable option it's Coward's Gear + Jailbreaker.

    Not that I need another alt, but that is something I might consider.

    @FlopsyPrince Not entirely required to have a build just for gathering. It's advisable if you're low on funds/resources. I just pick up the majority of the nodes when I go from point "A" to point "B" besides all the survey reports that I get from daily writs. Once I finished researching traits I relocated those points into the keen eye passive. I already have the speed passive.

    Personally, I find it worth it because I don't have the Crafting Bag. So my gatherer has full bag space along with all the CP I want to farm and run forever.

    If you do have ESO+, then any stam build in running gear with the plentiful harvest and master gatherer perks will work just fine.

    Keen Eye in alchemy is mandatory, everything else is useful.

    I use that alt to store all my surveys I get from my daily writs (there are currently ~150 unique surveys), then collect them when I get to 10+ of a specific one. They also have maximum passives in all the refining lines to maximize drops when refining.

    I do writs. Lots and lots of writs. I share the data.

    You might have a look at this:

    https://alcasthq.com/eso-fast-gold-farming-build-pve/

    Personally, I don't actively farm materials, but all of my characters have plentiful harvest, master gatherer, and as many keen eye level 1 perks as possible. Will Dismount For Mats (when I'm on the way to doing something else). This is mostly good enough to keep all of them supplied for daily writs.
    Army of me:
    CP810+: Breton Templar healer, Redguard stamina Warden, Imperial DK tank, Altmer magicka Sorceror, Orc stamina Sorceror/werewolf, Nord Necromancer tank, Khajit TG/DB Nightblade, Bosmer stamina Necromancer, Argonian Warden healer, Dunmer magicka DK, Nord Nightblade tank
    Second account, CP260+: Breton magicka Warden
    Sub-50: Nord Nightblade, Bosmer stamina Templar/werewolf, Dunmer magicka Necromancer, Orc stamina DK

    I farm on an Imperial (my main), and my farming loadout is Fiord's (5) + Jailbreaker (5) + Nocturnal's Favor (2) with all jewelry traited to Swift. Since you're on an Orc, you could switch out the Jailbreaker for something else and not lose any speed overall. I prefer this combo because it gives me the highest non-sprint speed (177% vs. being capped at 200% while sprinting) and allows me to sprint near endlessly with crazy stamina recovery.

    I use something very similar to this only mine is an orc. For classes I prefer sorc because bolt escape comes in handy for an extra boost at times. And being a vampire also helps

    Stay off the horse...wear certain armor sets that allow fast sneaking...to avoid most battles. The dudes on horse are just going for the chests and so forth....keep on doing it.

    Just remember, there is a speed limit to spint. If you're wearing multiple speed sets plus swift... you're wasting speed.

    I use Darkstride+Cowards, no swift trait. My sprint speed is right at max on my farmer, with Steed and CP for speed/regen.

    All my characters gather. However, one is dedicated to the process, holds all the surveys and Treasure Maps. All gear and passives are focused on Speed, Stamina and Stamina recovery.
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    the faster you run, the more you miss. if I farm, I take it nice and steady and clean up behind the sprinters
