Farming questions

4 posts in this topic

Posted

Hey guys,

I'm just starting to look into the farming stuff ... I found it very original in that farming is that deep in MMORPG but before starting to look further I have an important question !

Is that possible to do farming and to have an IRL job ? I mean, will it be profitable ? 

The best would be to have to take care of my farm every 6 to 8 hours only. 

Im not hoping to do millions and millions, but this activity looks fun and it could be a good sustainable income while im disconnected. (Because I can't let my computer running all day)

Thanks for your help !

See ya IG,

Daestys

What i've found so far in farming  (am skilled 5) atm , is that u still can go afk for 6-8 hrs but only if your not interested in leveling your farming skill up. Pruning is the main leveling up process to get farming xp . I ve found the breeding and harvesting gives very little xp. So u have 2 options , (a) hire workers , have them work on your farms , but u wont get any pruning xp, meaning u wont get much in the way of farming progress xp,  (b) do it yourself and get as many farms as u can manage. I did 10 large farms , made a ton of the best fertilizer and distilled water, and fished near by.

If u prune reg and feed and water often, it will grow faster and have a slightly better crop, but at skilled 5 atm where am at the better yield is not much. Am near by most of the time so i have not really neglected my farms for 8hrs to see what really the effect is in not watering or feeding/pruning will do, But am of the opinion that it extends the crops growing time quite a lot and the crop suffers.

Yes theres profit to be made, a very good one if u have good rotation on breeding and harvesting. once your of high enough level i suggest u leave the farming to your workers if your only after the crop, but if u need to level farming your going to have to prune, For the first couple of levels noob-apprentice u will mainly get your seed back ( the one u planted) and maybe a clone of the same seed. At apprentice to skilled i started to notice i got my seed back and a higher tier seed. U can plant blue seeds straight out the gate if u have the funds, but tech it will be wasted on low level farmers, u wont be able to breed as many  and the crops wont be as good as a pro. My goal was to start growing crap seeds in the first farm, breed the higher grade to my next better farms, multiply and the last farms are for cropping only, having an infinite supply of seeds all strating from 1 crap seed.  The going to work  for 8 hrs and coming home to a red batch every day will take u an age to level farming unless u put in the ground work to get your dude to a level where u wont suffer as much crop / sanity wise.

Your crops don't grow when you're offline.
