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.

    Is it worth having a dedicated gatherer?

    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.

    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.

    Sub-50: Nord Necromancer tank, Khajit TG/DB Nightblade, Bosmer stamina Necromancer, Argonian Warden healer, Dunmer magicka 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
