I ran into this last night on Coruscant. I was unable to gather from any crystal node that I ran across...I asked in trade chat, it seems to be isolated and not affecting everyone...

I've done everything but drop the skill and relearn it (I spent a bunch of credits getting it to 50 thinking something might have changed)...

Something definitely isn't working correctly...

I also submitted a ticket and the ticket mentions they are aware of the issue, and it will be fixed in an upcoming patch....

Happened to me on the beta--will test in game later today.

When I was not high enough level, it'd tell me, but yes, what I experienced in Beta was instances where clicking simply did nothing at all.
I make useful, game-expanding suggestions.

Has it ever crossed your mind that it's recently gathered and thats why you cant harvest? This is my experience from beta because sometime I could, sometimes not (same spot/crystal)

Now that is an interesting comment. Perhaps it is this way. I did have trouble in beta with my companion with this. He would go harvest, but because of distance to the object or it's location under some stairs, or something else made him stuck in harvest mode and unable to help in a fight I was doing nearby. All my button mashing did not work to get him off the resource node.

I guess we will see, come patch, if we have a clarification on this matter.

Heyla!

These ones were borked for me in all the betas I ran Imperial side. That camp is horrible with them. I even went back later thinking I wasn't high enough for them and still no go.

It's been bugged a lot so hopefully they'll fix them soon.

Cheers!

You know you can gather node yourself by shift-clicking it? But that's not the problem with your companion stuck, or node being gathered recently. It's a bug from beta where nodes sometimes spawn incorrectly, and people can't interact with them at all - they don't get error messsages and can't efen start trying to pick them up.

Even if they are a much higher level you can still interact somewhat, meaning your cursor changes shape, but is usually grayed out indicating you are not high enough level.

What the OP is talking about is a resource that is there and shows up on the map, but your cursor remains the same. It is totally non interactive.

I noticed this a lot in beta.

Usually if a resource node has already been collected it disappears quite quickly. Unless there is a bug where it stays around being inert.

Tython, being a starter world does not have any crafting resources to harvest. You do not learn crafting until you are done with the starter planet and have moved on to Carrick Station.

You will need to see the trainer at intervals to buy new recipes. However you automatically increase in crafting levels as you progress. You just need to manually buy the higher level recipes every so often.

If it's bug fom beta, it's bugged spawning, not despawning.
I was farming corruscant for resources and saw how those bugged ones spawn - they appear, but are not interactable from beginning.
