Planting

From Runes of Magic Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Newsaufmacher plant en.jpg


Seeds should be planted in their respective pots. You can plant seeds in any pot but planting seeds in the wrong pots will increase the amount of fertilizer and water needed to grow them by 33%.

Feed it irrigation (water) and compost and try to keep it near the red line in the blue and green zones for good growth.

Irrigation and compost level drops around at a rate dependant on the level of the pot and consumables in use. If you use the wrong pot you gain NO advantage in feed drop rate reduction.

By influencing health at the end of the 24 hour cycle you can get different results and get experience based on the plant health in steps of 10% for the harvest.

Health will drop if it's outside the growth area (blue for water, green for compost) by the amount specified on the bar.

Feed drop rate depends on the level of the pot and consumables in use and compatibility of the pot to the seed.

Currently planting supplies can only be bought at Varanas Central Plaza, Logar near the mayor, the newbie section of Elven Isle, and at Obsidian Stronghold in the Crafting Square.

It is important to note that currently it is not possible to put plants in a guild castle. Neither live plant pots nor already grown, locked pots will actually display in a guild castle. This may be corrected in a future patch, but it is unlikely as the new pots level 43+ all state "For Residence Use Only". EDIT: you CAN place already grown plants in your guild castle.

[edit] Leveling

Apprentice planting levels (1-20) can be attained in the usual fashion. The Craftsman certification requires collecting 1 Green Leaf Dewdrop, which are a rare harvest item. The Crafstman certification quest can be completed at any NPC selling plant seeds (see above for locations).

The only reliable way to get Green Leaf Dewdrops is to plant low level seeds. If one isn't found by level 20, begin planting level 1 seeds in level 19 pots using level 19 consumables. It is entirely random, no credible evidence exists indicating that time of day or even plant health contributes to the chance of getting a rare harvest. Some players have the leaf before level 18, some report going weeks at level 20 with level 1 seeds and not recieving a single leaf.

Once planting level reaches 20 and Craftsman certification is obtained up to 10 plants can be grown at once.

Expert certification is available from Nabul Fulan in Obsidian Stronghold once planting reaches level 40. Nabul will provide a quest to grow a plant for 24 hours. The quest rewards are a nice bag of planting goodies, which includes a versatile pot and some magic nutrient items, and Expert skill certification which raises the skill cap to 60. If the first attempt with the Snow Flame Seed doesn't work out Nabul will provide another one for 10 Silver Ore, 10 Holly Wood, and 10 Barsa Leaf.

To get planting to master you need to talk with Sam Paresh. He is located in Varanas Lower City West

[edit] Consumables

There are two main types of consumable related to planting, water (irrigation) and dirt (fertilizer or compost). There are also several special consumables that are not generally available at a vendor, as well as higher quality versions of the main consumables.

The standard vendor consumables available in flavors of levels 1,19,37,55 provide 10% of their respective plant nutrient and decrease the rate of consumption based on the level of the consumable. Higher level consumables reduce consumption by greater amounts, so level 19 River Water will make your plants use less water than level level 1 Irrigation Water. If a plant is given multiple levels of consumables (for instance if you gain access to a higher level water and give it to a plant that has already received a lower level water) the consumption rate will be decreased a combined amount with each 10% of nutrient having a weight of 1. The exact amount of rate decrease is listed in the table below, but as a general rule it is better to always use the highest level consumables available to reduce the amount of water/dirt required throughout the growing cycle as well as to mitigate health loss incurred due to consumption during feeding interruptions. To summarize, always use the best you can get to keep your plants as healthy as possible. Level 73 and 80 consumeables are available only from the planting vendors in Varanas.

Four special mid-level consumables available from Nabul Fulan in Obsidian Stronghold as of patch 2.1.5 have some additional benefit. The green Pixie Spring Water and Pixie Soil are level 1 while the blue Heavenly Spring Water and Rejuvenation Soil are both level 40. All four of these items are labeled 'Special' in the description, however they are used like normal water/dirt. They provide 20% of the respective nutrients, and a far superior rate reduction.

There are also some rare items for use in the 'Magical Irrigation Water' slot. These are available in the Cash Shop. Every player will receive a few medium and high class growing agents and plant protection items upon gaining expert skill certification. The Plant Growing Agent states that it increases growing rate, and Plant Protection states that it increases plant health.

Level Irrigation Fertilization  % of Nutrients Gold Cost Base Drain Reduction Special Notes
1 Irrigation Water Compost Heap 10% 3 2%
19 River Water Organic Fertilizer 10% 10
37 Spring Water Soil With Low Amounts of Nutrients 10% 30

73 Life Spring Water Soil With Large Amounts of Nutrients 10% 100
1 Pixie Spring Water Pixie Soil 20% 150 60% gives chance to harvest 20% extra
40 Heavenly Spring Water Rejuvenation Soil 20% 350 66%
80 Starlight Spring Water Celestial Dust 20% 800

[edit] Seeds

The size of the harvest is affected by plant health, planting level, and certain planting titles. Generally speaking a single plant will harvest up to 40 green refined mats or 20 blue mats, but the exact amounts vary. If the seed is 5 levels or more below your planting level there is a random chance of a bonus harvest of additional material or rare harvest items. Sometimes this takes the form of the next highest material (for example Demon Weed + Beetroot) and sometimes it is simply additional materials of the same type.

Since the implementation of Planting the additional harvest will sometimes include 'rare' materials, for example the Pixie Tree Seed occasionally generates Sagewood Timber. These rare drops will be listed in the chart in italics to provide a reference for those seeking a specific material while indicating that this is not a standard harvest result.

Following is a seed harvesting materials table, also you can look it more detailed via Android app

[edit] Pots

Base drain indicates the rate of water/dirt loss indicated prior to adding water or dirt for that level pot. For special pots, it indicates the base drain for the specific pot.

[edit] Item Shop Pots

There are only 7 Planting pots available in the item shop that offer a significant reduction in drain rate allowing you to water less and making planting cheaper in the long run and needing less work. The base rates are what the drain rate indicator says as soon as you put a planted item in the pot before adding any fertilizer, irrigation, or special water. In observed cases the drain rate goes down when you irrigate and fertilize your plant. It is presumed higher level fertilizer and irrigation have slower drain rates.
