Foraging AP

There are plenty of items simply lying around Castanet, ready for the taking. No matter where you are in the game, there is a possibility of picking up something within that loaded screen.

Not only can you find items yourself, but if you take your pet for a walk, they might find something themselves. Keep an eye out and you may come home with a bigger profit than expected.

At the end of the year, a Bargain Contest is held on New Years to determine who collected the most wild items throughout the year. It's always a good idea to pick something up!

[edit] Toucan Island Items

These items can only be foraged from the distant Toucan Island. They're rather profitable, but it's not recommended to pay for a Boat Ticket just to collect the local undergrowth. If you're making a stop on Toucan Island to fish or visit, take the time to pick up these tasty items. Careful though if you're giving them as gifts, some people love them and some people hate them. It's safer to double check before handing out your precious cargo.

[edit] Common Mushroom

Season: All Year

Location: Farm, Flute Fields, Garmon Mine District, Mines, Fugue Forest

Value: 40G

[edit] Mushroom

This mushroom is white and is edible, not to be confused with the Common Mushroom, but no harm done if you accidentally pop it in your mouth.

Season: All Year

Location: Garmon Mine District, Mines, Fugue Forest

Value: 80G


[edit] Fugue Mushroom

Not many people are particularly fond of this strange mushroom except the Witch and Wizard. For them, it's a great gift. Mind, a few villagers like Jin won't turn away such a mushroom, it's probably best not to experiment with such a rare specimen.

Season: All Year

Location: Fugue Forest

Value: 70G


[edit] Pontata Root

The Pontata Root, highly prized at the Choral Clinic, is difficult to obtain. When in the mines, you can hit a passing mole with your hammer and there's a small chance it just might leave behind a Pontata Root.
