Getting the watercress stalk in the New World

Watercress is a bright blue plant, which makes it really obvious to see it from a distance, so you can’t miss it. However, you must increase your gathering skill to level 30 before you can collect it. This can be done by making a sickle and collecting all the knots of hemp and herbs that you see in nature. The more you harvest, the faster your skill level will increase.
Hemp, in particular, will give you the most experience at lower levels.
Once you’ve had enough, go ahead and interact with the watercress by pressing the E button, and you’ll get the New World Cress Stem and Water Grains. The former is used to brew potions and other arcane uses, while the latter is used to brew the Ice Gauntlets.
