Source Material Collection is the first part of the Core of the Apparatus event, and it involves collecting items to fill up The Great Machine. After speaking to Bertrand, he'll give you a Gadget called the Material Collector. It will fill up as you collect the materials that he asks you to acquire.

Bertrand will ask you to collect the following. Keep in mind that you must have the Material Collector equipped while playing through this segment, or the items you pick up won't register.
