The final farming showdown.

Recommended Posts

Ok, under advice from my friend I decided to farm ranarrs instead of avantoes. However, it seems to me that with ranarrs there's less profit (50 ranarr seeds makes about 500k (1.7m cost, 2.2m back), while avantoes gave more (100 ranarr seeds gave me 4.5m (500k on seeds, 5m herbs)). Under the conditions that I specify, and with the conditions that you make up, which is better?

 

Mine:

Supercompost, min yeald, 1 always dies.

 

Help is appreciated.

Well it seems you might have misplaced a few words. I think that the ranarrs should be avantoes on the second line. And you can just use 6.67 herbs per seed as that is calced when using super compost, magic secateurs, and the trollheim patch. Deaths is also calculated in the 6.67 herbs so you don't have to do that separately.

 

(08:08:14) -[WC]RuneScript- *** [ GE ]: Results: 4 | [M] Grimy Ranarr: 8.6k 9.1k 9.6k (Today: -309gp [-309gp/-3.3%]) | [M] Ranarr Seed: 31.8k 33.5k 35.2k (Today: -360gp [-360gp/-1.1%])

(08:08:26) <%CptBaker> `9.1k*6.67

(08:08:26) -[WC]RuneScript- *** [ CALC ]: 9.1k*6.67 = 60,697 (60.6k)

(08:08:42) <%CptBaker> `60.6k-33.5k

(08:08:44) -[WC]RuneScript- *** [ CALC ]: 60.6k-33.5k = 27,100 (27.1k)

(08:08:56) <%CptBaker> .ge avantoe seed, grimy avantoe

(08:08:58) -[WC]RuneScript- *** [ GE ]: [M] Avantoe Seed: 4.6k 4.9k 5.1k (Today: +232gp [232gp/+5%]) | [M] Grimy Avantoe: 5.4k 5.6k 5.9k (Today: -238gp [-238gp/-4%])

(08:08:58) -[WC]RuneScript- *** [ GE ]: Total item values: 10,083gp 10,614gp 11,145gp

(08:09:08) <%CptBaker> `6.67*5.6k

(08:09:09) -[WC]RuneScript- *** [ CALC ]: 6.67*5.6k = 37,352 (37.3k)

(08:09:18) <%CptBaker> `37.3k-4.9k

(08:09:18) -[WC]RuneScript- *** [ CALC ]: 37.3k-4.9k = 32,400 (32.4k)

 

If you can follow it, that is how i figured it out. Ranarrs profit 27.1k per seed and avantoes profit 32.4k per seed, if you use the med price for grimy herbs and seeds. And it may also seem that avantoes give more exp then ranarrs as well.

Using your conditions, you'll get 20 herbs per run.

 

5 Ranarr seed = 5 x 33,500 = 167,500

20 Ranarr herbs = 20 x 9,157 = 183,140

Profit = 15,640

 

Avantoe seed = 5 x 4,915 = 24,575

20 Avantoe herbs = 20 x 5,699 = 113,980

Profit = 89,405

 

But, realistically you get about 6 herbs per seed, so...

 

5 Ranarr seed = 5 x 33,500 = 167,500

30 Ranarr herbs = 30 x 9,157 = 274,710

Profit = 107,210

 

Avantoe seed = 5 x 4,915 = 24,575

30 Avantoe herbs = 30 x 5,699 = 170,970

Profit = 146,395

 

Looks like Avantoe wins either way. All this is really dependent on the seed and herb prices at the time, so this could change.

6.8 is the average if you use supercompost and secateurs and all 5 patches.

 

The winners as of today's mid GE prices are Torstol at 53k/patch and wergali at 50k/patch. Avantoe is next at 35k.

Avantoe havn't been selling lately.

I've had a hard time selling herbs in general, but Avantoes are particularly difficult, yes. I have about 350 avantoe seeds left. <_<

Just keep them. From time to time I've been burning off my stock too, but I'm keeping mine until the next exp weekend or something :)

 

With avantoes, unf were selling really easy when I burnt off my stock last.

I don't like it either, but jagex is planning the next one as we speak, and I intend to take advantage of it.
