Harvesting professions may be trained at level 20 from trainers in Poitain, Lacheish Plains and Purple Lotus Swamp. The trainers will give you quests at each tier that allow you to harvest higher level materials. You may learn all six of the gathering professions.
The first tier quests involve gathering 20 of each respective resource. Upon turning each of those quests in, you will receive the tier 2 quests to gather a single rare drop of each respective type. Note that for all gathering quests the completion credit is for actually gathering the item. Purchased materials will not count towards the tier quests.
A full node is at 100% "health" when a harvest is performed 10% of health is lost. A node can therefor be harvested 10 times before it is depleted. Once it's health is lower than 100% it will slowly regain health over time. (assumed 100% per half hour)
Note that trying to harvest any material too high for your current level results in a message that states that the character doesn't have the harvesting skill.
