Lunaris Farming Guide
Welcome to the Farming Guide! Here you will be able to learn more information regarding patches, farming equipment, techniques and more.
The first step in commencing this skill, is purchasing your tools. If possible, we recommend that you gather the necessary achievement points in order to acquire the Farmer's outfit from Twiggy. This will provide boosted experience while training Farming.
Twiggy is located east of Lunaris Town Centre
Next, you can purchase the tools you require to commence Farming by speaking to Vanessa, who is located North and over the bridge at Lunaris Town Centre. You can also purchase seeds from Fred the Farmer, who is located right next to Vanessa. The farming patch here provides the following:
- Flower Patch
- Herb Patch
View Vanessa and Fred's shops below.
There are a few patches across the Lunaris main map. The patches can be found below, along with their patch type.
Tree Patches -
In order to plant a tree seed, simply have a plant pot in your inventory, place the seed inside, water the plant pot and then proceed to plant onto the patch.
Compost Bins -
You can also utilize the Compost Bin in order to yield more resources while picking your patch. You can view where on the map the bin is located above. Compost also reduces the chance of a farming patch becoming diseased per growth stage by 50%. You can either purchase compost from Vanessa, or create it yourself using the bin.
In addition, compost will increase the minimum yield and maximum number of harvests received from allotments, hops and herbs.
In order to create your own compost, simply place weeds, sweetcorns, or other farming produces into the compost bin. Proceed to fill your empty buckets with compost from the bin. Once the compost bin is filled, close it and wait until the contents are fermented. Fill your empty buckets with compost once it is finished.
Super Compost is a version of compost. This version of compost reduces the chance of a farming patch becoming diseased per growth stage by 6/7. When compared to regular compost, super compost increases the minimum number of herbs picked from your herb patch to 5. In order to create your own compost, simply place watermelons inside the compost bin, close it, and wait until the contents are fermented. You can add volcanic ash to super compost in order to make it into ultra compost.
For ultra compost, the minimum number of herbs increases from 5 to 6 when compared to super compost. The overall crop yield is around 20% higher on average.
Magic Secateurs -
These can be purchased from Twiggy at the Lunaris Town Centre's garden. When equipped, they increase the crop yield of herbs, allotments and hops by 10%. This is extremely useful for your herbs of which are more sought after such as ranarrs, where you are seeking to yield the maximum amount of herbs.
Flower Patches -
Flower patches are primarily used to protect crops from a disease. A crop in an allotment will not be diseased as long as there are fully grown flowers of the corresponding type in their adjacent flower patch. See below for the type of flower patches, along with their effect.
Master Farmer -
You can view the Master Farmer's location via the map above with the Lunaris Farming Legend. You can pickpocket him in order to acquire a variety of seed types. Level 38 thieving is required to pickpocket him, and each successful pick yields 1,290 experience.
