Obtaining the Skill[edit | edit source]
Prerequisites[edit | edit source]
Additionally, the player must possess Seeds to plant, a Sickle to harvest when the seeds have matured, as well as Watering Cans to water the plants, both of which can be purchased from Maury on Maury's Farm. Watering cans and seeds are consumed as they get used; the sickle is indestructible.
How to Farm[edit | edit source]
Farming can be performed on five plots, four of which are public and one of which are private. A map of the locations are shown above, with the private plot on the far right. The number of seeds you can plant at any given time increases with your farming level. Each of the five farm channels has 168 possible available public plots for you to plant as many of the seeds as you can plant, however the plots are used by all players in the game. Space is therefore limited and often runs out. On the other hand, the private lot will always have space for planting, however you are limited to planting one seed in the private lot.
|To begin farming, find an unused plot - when you mouse-over an unused plot, an icon of a garden shovel will appear, as shown at right. Left-click the plot and a pop-up window will appear. Choose the seed you wish to plant, and click Plant Seeds.|
At this point, a yellow and a blue status bar will appear over your plant. The yellow bar indicates the time remaining until the plant will be ready to harvest, gradually filling. The blue bar indicates the time remaining before the plant needs to be watered, gradually depleting. The time remaining before harvesting always exceeds the time remaining before watering, so at least one watering can must be used. Mousing-over the plot will also display more precise details about the resources of the plant. The amount of water a plant can hold at any one time is limited. If the limit is exceeded and the plant can no longer be watered, a red X appears when mousing-over the plant. However, this doesn't mean the plant will not require more water in the future. Conversely, it is possible to provide more water than is necessary. The player must therefore pay close attention to the amount of time remaining before harvesting vs. the amount of water available to decide when and whether to water.
When the yellow bar has filled, the plant can be harvested by left clicking on the plant. The harvested item then is placed in farm storage, which can be accessed by talking to Maury in the Public Farm, where the item will be stored for 15 days. After this time, the item will disappear if not acquired from Maury and placed into your own inventory.
You can also toggle the farming Status Board by clicking on the button below the user information in the upper left. This will display all the seeds currently being planted, as well as details regarding the harvest and water progress, information about the number of public plots available, and the ability to toggle whether or not the location of your plants appear in the minimap at the bottom center of the screen.
