Farming for Money

Recommended Posts

It seems I read a lot of people talking about loads of profit from Farming which has interested me to try a follow any methods of making money from farming. I'm aware that Herbs are the main source of income. Is it profittable from buying the seeds then growing or only when you gather the seeds yourself (drops etc). Which herbs are the best to make money from? I'm currently 85 Farming.

 

Thanks in advance.

Buying the seeds is the easiest way and does profit, the best i believe are snaps, lants, tortols(not totally sure), and maybe a few others. A worthy thing to note is the Scroll of Life from dung it has a permanent chance to save some seeds which of course adds more profit.

Yew seeds are not cheap at all... they're 70k each.

 

For farming, usually you buy seeds and plant them when harvesting the previous run (e.g. you need 10 seeds to start with, one set of 5 to plant the first run and another 5 to replace them with).

 

If you have juju farming potions and a scroll of life, go with torstol. If you lack juju farming potions, farm snapdragon and get them. If you lack the scroll, also farm snaps and get it fast (it only takes about a day to get both anyway).

Do you keep returning to make sure they aren't diseased?

No, you just take the chance that they are not. Just make sure you treat your patch with supercompost every time, the death rate is then something like 1/10 so its worth it just to leave them.

Do you know much you lose?

You lose whatever you planted in that patch if it gets diseased and not treated. But if you have the scroll of life you have a 1/10 chance of receiving your seed back when harvesting from any non tree, non flower patch. The scroll also gives you a 5% chance in receiving your tree seed back from a dead tree or a tree stump.

You do get deaths and that sucks, but with both juju and scroll of life I still profit on many runs with deaths (unfortunately I also sometimes lose money of course). Averaged out, you will still make more money doing torstol than any other herb, even with the higher death loss.

Nope. That would be a waste of time.

 

See above post: You just take your losses and in the long run you profit. Or even in the short'ish run.
