Botany 60-70

The most efficient way to level Botany is by doing Collectables from 60-66 and both Collectables and Leves from 67-70. You can also do GC turn-ins each day for some extra EXP.

Listed below are the available collectables that can be gathered for red scrips. These require a Collectability rating of 450+.

Collectable Turn-ins

  • Beech Branch (Lv. 60)
    • The Fringes (11, 17) (Slot 3) @ 6AM/PM
  • Bamboo Shoot (Lv. 63)

  • Lotus Root (Lv. 66)

Gearing at Level 70

Once you hit level 70 you will want to start farming yellow scrips to trade in for the level 70 gear. You can use the same rotations as you see fit.

You will also want to spend your red scrips on the folklore books which allow you to gather folklore items to increase your yellow scrip collect rate.
