farming on BXP

would it make sense for me to plant magic seeds the day before, as soon as I log in farm the 5 mage trees and plant 5 more, then log out and wait for them to grow again, then log in and do another mage tree run? This gets me 2 mage tree runs at 2.7X

Not really.

Sure it gets you 2 magic tree runs, but you miss a good half day+ of playtime.

 

Using the full 10 hours > maximising the 2.7 on farming.

A good idea thou is to plant new trees overnight, means u get the boosted xp (thou at lower multiplier) without wasting playtime tht u culd use to eat up ur 10 hours.

Afterall most average joe players barely hit the 10 hour mark, so why delay urself just to get massive farm xp for checks? Play the whole time doing farm runs inbetween other skills and even with bonus drain ull get more xp overall.

Although it is possible to do, as I said in my previous post, I have to agree with accursed.. Although, say you're going away most of the weekend or such, the method you mentioned will of course work.

this will especially work if the bonus weekend starts at 12:01 AM on Friday, cause I have to work all day friday anyway, so I wouldnt be home to play either way I can stay up thursday night til after the 12AM mark and farm the trees, and plant new ones, then go to bed, go to work the next day, come home and log in and I have 5 new trees to farm.

 

Either way, I couldnt be playing during that time anyway.

So essentially like I said good move for periods when u wont be playing anyway (my example being overnight)

 

But when you can be playing you shuld be.

I don't think you have to plant the trees during the bxpw to get the bonus xp for checking.. If someone can verify this please? Meaning you won't have to wait till it actually starts to plant the trees, saving you a lot of time.

Nope you don't

 

Thats why everyone plants a full set of trees before the weeknd (well anyone with ense) then do the health checks when it begins

Just so you know, BXP weekend starts at 12:00 pm (noon) Jagex time. So unless your timezone lines up nicely, I wouldn't try to stay up from Thurs -> Fri just to get an extra farm run in. What I'm doing is, since BXP starts before I have to get to class;

Plant trees

Sleep

BXP WEEKEND STARTS

Farm run

Class

Farm run

Normal BXP weekend stuff

I'd recommend looking at them before the weekend starts, to make sure there's no dead trees. There's a good chance you'll miss out on a nice chunk of xp if you don't.

lol

 

Also, no reason to not do magic seeds especially if you're getting 2.7x exp :o

Stranger plant familars, also the OP could be expecting another farming level before the weekend. If he said he's doing magics, I'd just assume he is.

 

It should be noted that you do not get xp for some harvests if your level isn't high enough to plant the plants. I'm not sure whether this applied to herbs or trees or both.

You guys pretty much have the right idea, I plan on planting palms and a calquat tonight and check it when I get home. If you have the runescape tool bar, it has the "jagex time" on it, but for friday and saturday at least they should be 5 hours ahead of the eastern us, 4 hours on sunday b/c of day light savings. So the xp should come into effect at 7am for me.

Back to the main question, if your timezone matches up right plant trees tonight, check them and replant in morning of you have time, then check again when you get home = uber exp for ~10 mins of actual effort :D

Btw I'm posting from my phone so excuse any errors.
