Looking through recipie books I was trying to find of DoL and DoH have specific armor that increases their craft. I have a 10 botanist who is still in starter gear. I know their is a harvesting tool upgrade but as far as armor what should I be looking to make?

Hempen Shirt has a bonus to gathering I don't see any body peices with gathering bonuses that say they are suited to botanist though. The dodoskin jacket "Squirrel" also has +8 to gathering

The shirt says that it doesn't "favour" a botanist... does that mean that the bonus is lessened?

There's probably no way to know, right? XD

If you are interested in equipment for DoL, then please check out my post titled Fishing Equipment on the Fisher page.

Yes, my guideline was specific for fishermen only, but many (if not most) of the same equipment transfers to all DoL jobs.

Sheepskin Jerkin has a +10 to gathering on it. It took me forever to find one though most people seem to sell armored gear rather than attire at least on my server.
