Guild Wars 2 Gathering Run

From reddit (I just didn’t much like the formatting)

The Route

Verdant Brink

Jaka Itzel Waypoint [&BOAHAAA=]
Available to only Heart of Thorns players. Go north of the waypoint and drop down all the way to the bottom, avoiding any solid object (so you don’t die). There should be a bunch of flax that you can gather.

Dry Top

Prosperity Waypoint [&BHoHAAA=]
Go up the ramp and there should be a bright object that you can go through which will give you a new 1 skill that shoots you up. Use that ability to go past the gap, and then use it again to go to your left. Sometimes, there will be an ancient wood node there as a bonus. Proceed and there will be another bright thing that gives you a new 3 ability that allows you to select an area and jump to that area. Use this to go across the gap and use 1 ability to go higher. Follow the map to make it easier. As an additional note, these quartz nodes are available only once per account per day.

Brisban Wildlands

Gallowfields Waypoint [&BGMAAAA=]
Ignore the silver ore and find the iron nodes and make a plan for which route to go. Make sure to get the rich iron vein. Sometimes, there are two rich iron veins in the area, and make sure to check the bandit fort nearby because a rich iron vein sometimes spawns there.

Metrica Province

Akk Wilds Waypoint [&BEIAAAA=]
You can use shortbow 5 or shadowstep on the edge before the arrow shaped steps so you don’t have to go all the way around.

Southsun Cove

Pearl Islet Waypoint [&BNUGAAA=] and Owain’s Refuge Waypoint [&BNgGAAA=]
Your main focus here is to get passion flowers from passiflora and blooming passiflora. Blooming passiflora have a 100% chance of giving you a passion flower, but passiflora also have a small chance of giving it as well. After you get to the north-east area, drop down and start killing skelk as you go down the coast, since they have a fair chance of giving you powerful blood and vicious fangs. As mentioned by /u/iPenguin_, there is an extra path you can go in the second map I provided to get even more materials. With the right spawns, this can yield amazing results, and it can be done quickly on multiple characters per day. Definitely check it out.

Harathi Hinterlands

Demetra Waypoint [&BKsAAAA=]
Go into the building and look for the rich iron vein. After you get the rich iron vein, you can also do a little bonus event if you want where you can kneel in front of the statue, talk to the NPC that comes out, and then interact with the coffin to do a quick event for exp and karma, and then gather from the chest that is nearby. Waypointing out is a little of a hassle since there are a lot of mobs, so if you don’t feel this is worth it, it’s your call.

Icegate Waypoint [&BJMBAAA=]
Ignore the silver ore and go to the rich iron vein (sometimes there are two). Glide off after the rich iron vein in the path provided to hopefully get some extra iron and wood. At the beginning, there may be some nodes that are underneath the bridge area and you have to drop down to get them. You can get back up quickly by blinking back onto the bridge, like this

Seaweed galore!

Frostgorge Sound

Arundon Waypoint [&BHgCAAA=]
Lots of monsters. The minotaurs don’t drop powerful blood, so don’t bother. Make sure to get snow truffles!

Fireheart Rise

Rustbowl Waypoint [&BB4CAAA=]
At the very end of the path at the south, there is a butternut squash farm. Usually, to get to it you would have to go into the cave and drop down. However, with gliding and lean techniques mastery, you can go on top of the rocks/huts and quickly take a shortcut directly to the farm! Here’s an example of how to do it

Nolan Waypoint [&BN4AAAA=]
Rich Iron Vein at the end of the path.

Iron Marches

Sleekfur Enampment Waypoint [&BOgBAAA=]
Sometimes there is a rich plat node right next to the hero point. Additionally, this waypoint is sometimes contested. In the case that the waypoint is contested and you get put somewhere else, I would use this path. Make sure to gather coral if you see them because they have a chance of dropping coral orbs.

Grostogg’s Kraal Waypoint [&BO8BAAA=]
Careful for the monsters there. Should be a veteran too. Possibly two rich platinum veins.

Mentioned by /u/backslashdotcom. This is an area that I had no knowledge about, and I checked it out and it seems to be decent.

Hessdallen Kenning Waypoint [&BF0CAAA=]
There is at least one rich iron vein, but most of the time there are two. After getting the first rich iron vein, follow the path back to the bridge and either go around and cross it, shadowstep/shortbow 5 onto the bridge like this, or climb the crystal wall to go north.

A very long path. But lots to gather! Rich platinum vein at the end of the path.

Mount Maelstrom

Gauntlet Waypoint [&BNMCAAA=]
Another one of my personal favorites. There is a guaranteed rich platinum vein underwater near the end, but make sure to also check the very end of the path for a possible bonus rich platinum vein.

Malchor’s Leap

Pagga’s Waypoint [&BKYCAAA=]
Sometimes you will find ancient wood nodes or orichalcum nodes along the path. Get the group of elder wood nodes around the statue thing, and then do the Antre of Adjournment Jumping Puzzle!!!!! Seriously, it shocks me how very few people do this jumping puzzle, considering how easy it is and the really high chance of you getting free t6 materials from the numerous chests inside the jump puzzle. The entrance to the jumping puzzle is a small hole in the water, underneath the bridge. Here is a video guide by Dulfy. As mentioned by /u/TehAn0mollie and /u/DazedRabbit, you can also go north of the waypoint to get extra materials, and even a pact vendor along the way if you’re lucky. Seaweed is especially good if you can find it.
