In this episode I show how I gather collectable items for Miner to turn in for EXP and eventually at level 56+ Blue Scrips, which are used to buy crafting and gathering gear and Master Recipe III books.
Heavensward Collectables Spreadsheet:
This is the rotation of abilities I use to maximize the experience gained:
Toil of the Mountaineer (MNR) / Toil of the Poineer (BTN)
Click the item (Yellow Copper Ore in this case)
Sharp Vision if required to get 100% chance to gather
Gather 4 items
High Level Rotation:
Toil of the Mountaineer/Pioneer
Field Mastery / Sharp Vision (I or II, if needed)
Turn these in for 60k experience each which will give 240k total every 12 Eorzean hours. If you find a better way to do this please let me know in the comment below.

You unlock the ability to acquire collectables here:
Foundation (X:10 Y:10) NPC: Morgayne
Players must first complete the main scenario quest "The Better Half"
Official Patch Notes 3.0:
Rowena's House of Splendors seeks capable tradesmen to procure the collectables sought by her wealthy clientele. Players can craft or gather collectable items to be exchanged for experience points, scrips, and gil. Scrips are rewarded based on the collectability of the item exchanged. However, items considered to be collectable can only be obtained through crafting or gathering.
To gather collectable items, players must use the Collector's Glove command. While under the effect of this command, players can gather items as collectables.
After gathering a collectable item, players can then use the general action Aetherial Reduction to possibly receive items of even greater rarity.
