Use the minimap to see nodes. Need Triangulate(Bot)/Prospect(Min) active to identify nodes on map. Arbor Call( Bot )/Lay of the Land( Min ) to look for nodes if required.
Each node naturally has a lifespan of 6 strikes. Meaning you can attempt to gather 6 times from any given node, whether you choose to gather 6 different items, or 6 of the same item.
Basically, 100% chance of getting the item, 20% chance of item being HQ.
