Agon is filled with nodes that players can hit for resources. These nodes include trees, rocks, iron veins, special ore veins, sand/dirt, bushes and bodies of water.
To start gathering, all you have to do is click the node using one of the necessary gathering tools.
In order to gather most of the nodes throughout the world of Agon, a player must equip the necessary gathering tool. These tools can be crafter, bought at the market, bought from NPCs or bought at the Nithron Shop. The Nithron Shop Nithron Shop offers special tools that are "blessed" and won't drop on death. Some tools include sickles, pickaxes, etc.
