I am new here like I said what are the bugs and crupled up papers used for are they even worth collecting?
Just like hyperion praxis said, they can be used for creating various different items. I'm not sure of all that you can make, but I know that with the paper you can make hats, but I don't know what the bugs are for. In my opinion, they're not worth collecting, and you can sell them in the Market if you don't want them.
Welcome to Gaia.
If you have any questions, feel free to message me.
Go to Ruby's Rack to turn paper into hats
Skin Tyte to turn bugs into ink, which you can then change into tattoos. (You can also go to Durem Depot to turn bugs into ink)
Buttercup Cafe to turn flowers into bouquets.
You can try alchemy and try to make a philosopher's cache or alchemist case. Formulas are in Bifrost, but cost about 5k to 10k. You can collect about 50-100 of each type of trash and then make the item, but the chances of success on these are kind of low if you're starting out, so chances of failing might be kind of high...
