I've seen these lights all over the place, but I couldn't interact with them. Any idea what they do? I know a little kid in Aleport said that they were "shinies" or something, implying they were some kind of treasure. Thanks.

The botany points are green and float upwards. These are white and rotate in a circular fashion.

Not a glitch; it is a spearfishing point, but you stab bugs instead of frogs. I get things like black/white scorpions from the ones in the desert.

Yeah those are spearfishing points. You need a off hand fishing gig to use it.

They're gathering points. You can't interact with them because you're not a gathering class. Lights in trees and bushes are logging and harvesting points and require you to be botanist. Lights on rock faces are mining points and require you to be miner. I'm not entirely sure what the lights in Aleport are, since you seem to be able to fish anywhere there's water, rather than there being "fishing points".

Edit: Ah, spearfishing points for the fishing secondary tool. Learn something new every day. Does anybody know where you find points for the mining secondary tool? I know the bushes for the botany secondary...

Mining secondary points are similar to primary points as in they glitter on a rock face. However where a mining point has a large slightly reddish glow, the secondary point doesn't have long beams of light and just glitters in a small way. Mining secondary points are quite commonly found in underground caves, or on rock faces near rivers like in Gridania.

In Uldah's region, I find them in caves.
In Gridania, I find them along the rock face of the little streams you see (if it's in the water, its spearfishing, if its on the rocks, its quarrying).
When in doubt, whip it out. I mean your rock hammer, obviously.

Mostly in caves or in those half-cave places with the earth canopies (don't know how to explain these lol).
