Utilizing higher-tier Sickles will speed up harvesting but is not required in order to collect higher-tier plant materials. When crafting Sickles, a Botanist’s Charm can be included in the crafting process for a chance to imbue the tool with the Botanist’s Luck Perk which provides a small boost to the chance of obtaining Rare Resources when harvesting. Sickles must be in the player’s inventory in order to perform the Harvesting skill.
