A Forager is a type of familiar that will gather items when summoned, such as the granite crab. Foragers can collect and hold up to 30 items before having a full inventory. If players do not collect the items from the familiar before their time runs out, they will drop whatever items they have collected when they disappear. There are three types of foragers:

  • Passive: Generates items completely on its own the entire time it's out
  • Right-click: Generates items with a right-click ability
  • Scroll: Generates items with the use of its scroll ability
