1-120 & Beyond Farming Training


Traditional Way

Traditional way of farming is done by planting various types of seed all across the game and collecting them after they grow. For this method the best experience yielding seeds are tree seeds. They take longer to grow compared to other crops but they yield the highest amount of experience. Here is how you farm:

  1. Rake a patch to remove the weeds.
  2. Treat the empty patch with a supercompost or ultracompost.
  3. Use your seeds or saplings on the patch.
  4. Pay the farmer to look after your crops. (So that it is guaranteed for them to survive.)

Manor Farm


For maximising your experience gains you will need at least level 92 Farming and 60 Construction.

  • 2 Large pens + Breeding Pen: 10 Dragons = 1,250,000 EXP/Week
  • 2 Medium pens: 8 Zygomites = 800,000 EXP/Week
  • 2 Small Pens: 12 Chinchompas = 900,000 EXP/Week
In total you will be getting 2,950,000 EXP/Week

This is with peak efficiency.

Seedicide Method


Seedicide is an item which automatically destroys the seed you get as drops from monsters. In return this item grants you Farming experience. For this to work efficiently you need to have the required Farming level to plant these said seeds, otherwise you won't be getting any experience.

This item can be obtained from Stanley Limelight for 360 Thaler or from the Farmers' Market for 10K beans.

There are several monsters that yield a lot of Farming experience:

  • Turoths: 130K-170K EXP/H with level 74 Farming
  • Aquanites: 160K EXP/H with level 91 Farming
  • Vyrelords: 90K-120K EXP/H with level 74 Farming

Hope this guide was helpful! Goodluck on your grind :)
