The Guide to Which Herbs to Plant
Foreword by Evil Dave
Good day, fellow evil-doers. I'm Evil Dave, and I'm here to introduce you to the EVIL art of herb farming. My evil friend TROACCTID has prepared an ULTRA EVIL HERB FARMING SPREADSHEET OF DOOM for you all! As I'm sure you all are aware, farming herbs can make cash even faster than my ARMY OF UNDEAD PENGUINS can DECIMATE THE PUNY WORLD OF RUNESCAPE! But you may have wondered to yourself, "What herb should I plant to make the most profit, so I can fund my EVIL PLOTS OF TERROR?" I myself was wondering the same thing, until I found this HORRIFYING chart that takes care of all that annoying arithmetic OF DEATH for me! While it may not be the longest guide, or the most evil, you'll hopefully learn a thing or two about DESTRUUUCTION! So pay attention and you just might make yourself a little more EVIL!
The Basics of Herb Farming
Which herbs to plant?
Rather than tell you in text form, I've prepared a handy-dandy spreadsheet on Google Docs.
CLICK HERE FOR THE SPREADSHEET
This spreadsheet tracks the most profitable herbs. All the prices are pulled automatically from the Grand Exchange database. From those automatically-updated prices, the spreadsheet performs a few calculations and generates:
1. The average profit per seed and per run
2. The average profit/hr
3. The average xp per seed and per run
4. A bar graph comparing profitability
5. Line graphs showing profit as a function of harvest size per seed and per run
I mustn't forget to give credit where credit is due: thanks to Brainymidget for the coding used to pull the GE prices automatically, and thanks to Penderwyll for implementing it.
That's all for today. I hope you find this tool valuable in your farming efforts.
