OSRS Farming (From Level 1 to 99) – Runescape Guide
In Old School RuneScape, Farming is a skill that you can use to harvest crops and plant seeds. These harvested items serve a variety of purposes and can also be sold for profit. OSRS focuses heavily on doing tree runs for Farming Training. Instead of training the skill for hours, you can spend a few minutes for a run and gain a lot of farming experience during that time. However, it is only possible to do 1-2 runs in a day.
Plants grow at a constant rate and continue to grow even after you have logged out. The crops grown in farming patches are only accessible to the player who grew them which is especially useful for wood bearing trees as they can be chopped down for wood logs and wood cutting experience without having to worry about somebody else looting your property. One thing to keep in mind is that tree runs cost money and it is a good idea to stack up on some gold coins before jumping on the farming training. Additionally, you should look into some money making methods in order to sustain the cost of Farming Training.
First things first, farming training can not be done with bare hands. From clearing patches to digging up dead plants, you are going to need specific tools designed to aid you in your task. Some of the more commonly used farming equipment includes Spade, Rake, Watering can, Secateurs, Seed dibber and Gardening Trowel among others. You can buy this equipment from one of the many farming shops located throughout RuneScape.
A great way to skip through the earlier low yield levels of training is by completing quests. You can complete the following quests to gain enough experience that will get you straight to Level 35 farming.
- Fairytale I – Growing Pains (This alone takes you straight to Level 17)
- Recipe For Disaster – Goblins Generals Subquest
- Forgettable Tale of the Drunken Dwarf
- Enlightened Journey
- Garden of Tranquility
- My Arm’s Big Adventure
All of these quests give you 22,500 experience points combined which will get you to Level 35.
However, if you are not interested in completing these quests, you can start with the following alternatives.
A great way to breeze through Levels 1-15 is by making supercompost or ultracompost. Creating supercompost in a compost bin is one of the easiest methods for new farmers. All you need to do is pick up some Watermelons and Pineapples from the Trader Stan’s Trading Post and get straight down to business. A bucket of supercompost will give you 8.5 farming experience. However, you can increase that to 10 if you add volcanic ash to the bucket which will create ultracompost.
Another option is to plant Bagged plants in your Player Owned House (POH). This is one of the most efficient methods to train farming but can be a little expensive.
Another great option is making Sulphurous Fertilizers. 950 or these fertilizers will get you to level 13 fairly easily. Keep in mind that you are going to need 5% favor in Hosidius House in order to make Sulphurous fertilizers.
Tree runs become fairly viable when you get to Level 15. This is a passive training method and the most effective way to gain farming experience. It is recommended to go for the highest-tier trees as they are the most rewarding. There are a total of six tree patch locations in Varrock, Falador, Lumbridge, Taverley, Gnome Stronghold and Farming Guild.
For each of these, you are going to need 1 tress sapling of the tree you are growing. A sapling can be bought from the Grand exchange or can be made by using a seed on a plant pot that is filled with soil. This will create a seedling which you can then water to turn into a sapling. This sapling can then be planted into a tree patch.
Trees take some time to grow and you can only do 1-2 tree runs in a day. However, over time, this turns out to be a lot faster than all the other methods and you can essentially train other skills as your trees grow. Once your trees have fully grown, you need to check if they are free from any disease and then pay the farmer to chop them down. If you are fairly consistent, it should take you no more than three to four months to get to level 99.
Fruit Tree Runs:
Old School RuneScape features six fruit tree patches in Brimhaven, Gnome Stronghold, Catherby, Tree Gnome Village, Lletya and Farming Guild.
Just like tree runs, you can buy the saplings directly from the Grand exchange or create them yourself. A fully grown healthy fruit tree continues to produce fruits every 45 minutes if it is not cut down and each tree can be harvested to receive 6 fruits.
As you are waiting for the trees to grow, you can do herb runs to gain more experience. Although not as rewarding as tree runs, herb runs take a lot less time and certain high-level herbs like Torstols can be very profitable. It is a good idea to treat herb patches with ultracompost to minimize the chances of diseases.
Tips and Tricks:
It is a good idea to pay the farmer to look after your trees to make sure they stay healthy. However if you are tight on budget, you should at least treat the patch with ultracompost.
You should also pay the farmer to chop down your trees instead of doing it yourself as it is a lot faster and reasonably cheap.
If you are not in a rush, you should stick to farm fruit trees and hardwood trees as they are much cheaper than regular trees.
Instead of creating your own saplings, buying them from the Grand Exchange is a lot faster. However, if you have level 68 Magic you can use the Humidify spell to water the seedlings a lot faster.

Old School Runescape - The Complete Farming Guide
Farming is one of the P2P skills in the game thus can only be trained by using P2P Methods. The best thing about training this skill is that you can do it while being totally AFK or even offline. But that also means it takes a long time to achieve a certain level.
There are other methods to train this skill quickly, but it is not efficient at all since you won’t be AFK and it requires your attention every few mins which makes this skill lose it’s AFK advantage. Methods like these are only good for impatient players and not recommended at all.
Farming is the process of planting seeds to grow crops to harvest later. This process takes time depending on what type of seed are you planting. There are many types of seeds to plant and all of them will be mentioned later.
In this article, we will be introducing the leveling guide of how to train Farming in the most efficient way means that you will be AFK 90% of the time by following it. An alternative method will be mentioned but it won’t be AFK at all. Making money through this skill can only be that profitable by Farming Herbs since their price is really high.
Also, keep in mind that Farming can sometimes be very expensive, so be ready to spend some coins.

OSRS Farming 101
First of all, you should know that Farming is probably the easiest skill to train in the game according to the few minutes it requires per day to plant and harvest your crops. Having a high level of Farming allows you to plant more seeds and increases the number of crops you get by harvesting one plant.
Planting seeds can only be done in the farming patches, these patches can only be found in some places around the map. Each patch is made for some specific seeds, meaning that you can’t plant all the seeds in the same patch type.
The crops you plant have different types, these types are either Normal trees, Fruit trees, Herbs, Allotments, Flowers, Vegetables, Hops, Bushs, or special plants. Each type has its own seeds and its own farming patches. Note that the Tree seeds will need to be made into a Sapling first before planting it.
Any plant or tree can be diseased while growing and it requires your care, but alternatively, players can pay for the NPCs near the patch to look after the patches for you. Each plant has a different payment and not all of them are protectable by paying to the NPCs. Generally, Herbs and Flowers are not protectable in addition to some other plants.
Farming Gardener, Old School Runescape
There is also another NPC (Tool Leprechaun) near each patch, he will store your Farming tools and note the crops for you to free some inventory slots.
Tool Leprechaun, Old School Runescape
To plant a seed, you will need some tools, each tool can be bought from any Farming shop which is located near every farming patch in the game. You can check every tool and its use in the table below.
|Rake||To get rid of weeds in a patch|
|Spade||Harvesting crops, clearing away dead plants and removing plant roots and bushes.|
|Watering can||Used for watering plants, which prevents disease during the watered growth cycle. Also used to water tree seedlings.|
|Seed dibber||Used for planting seeds in a plot.|
|Gardening trowel||Used to fill plant pots with soil, as well as planting tree seeds in plant pots to grow saplings.|
|Secateurs||Used for cutting away diseased leaves from trees and bushes.|
|Basket||Used for storing up to 5 pieces of fruit (Tomatoes, Strawberries, Oranges, Apples, Bananas).|
|Empty sack||Used for storing up to 10 vegetables (Potatoes, Cabbages, Onions).|
|Empty plant pot||Most often leftover after planting a sapling in a tree or fruit tree patch; needs to be refilled before use.|
|Filled plant pot||Used along with a trowel to plant tree seeds, which, when watered, produce tree saplings that may then be planted in patches.|
|Plant cure||Cures a diseased plant (other than trees and bushes).|
|Magic secateurs||Magic secateurs increase most variable yields when worn.|
Saplings, Old School Runescape
Turning a Seed to a Sapling is required to plant trees, this can be done by using planting the seed into a Filled Plant Pot while having a Trowel. An Empty Plant Pot can be filled by using it on any empty farming patch while having a Gardening Trowel in your inventory. After using the seed on the Filled Plant Pot, you will need to water it by using a Watering Can on it.
A Sapling with “w” at the end of its name is a watered Sapling and ready to be planted. Usually, 5 minutes is needed for each Sapling to be grown after watering it.
The table below shows every kind of Sapling in addition to the required level to plant it and many more details.

To do farming efficiently, you will have to use the closest teleport to the patch. This can be done in a circle, so you use a teleport to the next patch after planting and the same goes for harvesting. Choosing the teleport is totally depending on you and what you can afford.
Farming Guild Location, Old School Runescape
It is a place where you can plant additional seeds to the available patches in the game. The Place has various farming patches that can be used to gain more Farming XP.
The Guild can be accessed at level 45 Farming in addition to having 65% Hosidius favor. It also has 3 different stages; beginner, intermediate and advanced. Each stage has a required Farming level; 45 for beginner, 65 for intermediate and 85 for advanced. Every stage is limited to some Farming patches, unlocking all of them will let you access to all the patches inside the guild.
There are also 4 unique Farming patches located only inside the guild, these are the Anima patch, Celestrus patch, Redwood patch, and Hespori patch.
Compost Bin & Supercompost
Compost Bin, Old School Runescape
A Supercompost is an item obtained by filling the Compost bin found near the allotment patches with 15 crops. The Compost bin should be closed for 90 minutes to rot so the players can later use an empty bucket on it to fill it with Supercompost.
Only the items shown in the table below are used to create Supercompost (15 of any of them for a full Compost Bin).
|Poison ivy berries|
|White tree fruit|
The Supercompost used on the soil before planting to reduce the disease, but this is only useful for plants that are unprotectable by paying for the Farmer/Gardener near it.
Supercompost is also used for increasing the crop yield, meaning that it is very useful for planting Herbs to increase the gold profits. This can only be done to Hops, Allotments, and Herbs.
Useful Farming Items
The following items are very useful and recommended while training Farming. However, they are not a requirement to follow this guide.
Magic secateurs is used instead of the normal Secateurs as it increases your Herb, Allotment, and Grapes yield by 10%. The Magic secateurs can only be obtained after completing the Fairytale I – Growing Pains Quest or during it.
Note that completing this quest will get your Farming level from level 1 to 17 immediately.
Farming Outfit, Old School Runescape
It is an outfit that boosts your Farming XP by 2.5% when it is fully equipped, each piece of it gives different XP bonus. Outfit pieces can be bought from the Tithe Farm shop for 400 points which are only gained during the Tithe Farm minigame.
This outfit is not very important and not required to follow this guide.
The Quests below is going to significantly help you to pass the first few levels, especially the Fairy Tale I – Growing Pains as it is essential in our guide to be completed.

Farming Training – Level 1-99
Follow the guide below to reach level 99 in the most efficient way. If you don’t know how to farm, please check all the information in the OSRS Farming 101 section above.
The following methods will only include planting Trees as you can do it with very low efforts because they take a long time to grow meaning that you can be AFK for a longer time. Check the Sapling Section above if you don’t know how to make a Sapling.
Paying 200 coins for the Gardener to cut down the tree each time after checking its health is required for quick training. You click on the tree once it is fully grown to receive the XP. The protection payment for each tree was also explained earlier.
All the items mentioned below should be directly bought from the Grand Exchange and the protection payment items should be in a noted form for more inventory slots. Note that you should use teleports to speed up the process of each Farming round.
Farming Level 1-17
- Complete Fairy Tale I – Growing Pains Quest
From level 1 to 17 you can simply complete the Fairy Tale I – Growing Pains Quest which is very recommended. Doing it via Farming anything else but Trees is going to be very exhausting, thus we advise you to complete this quest so you can start planting Trees upon reaching level 15 or above.
Farming Level 17-27
Oak Tree, Old school Runescape
OSRS Gold Farming Guide
A complete guide about Gold farming in OSRS
The Runescape Old School provides its players with a lot of ways of making a profit. These methods range from standard item farming activities present in all MMORPGs, to more unique, and creative ones, like Grand Exchange flipping or converting items. The requirements and profitability of these moneymaking activities differ greatly, and there are a lot of methods with low requirements, that will still net you a lot of Gold per hour. So, if you are a new player, don't get discouraged, as with our Guide, you will certainly find the moneymaking method perfectly suited for you.
This guide will go over some of the more unique and interesting, as well as proven Gold Farming methods available in the OSRS. Both low and high-level methods will be featured, so players at every experience level will find something for themselves.
Gold is within an arm's reach, all you need to do is learn how to grab it, and we will help you with that.
Gold Farming methods with low requirements
These are the easily accessible methods, which doesn't mean that they will not provide you with a worthwhile profit. They will present you with an easy way to sustain yourself during long hours of skilling, leveling, and questing. A lot of them could also be used as an addition to the high-level methods by more experienced players, for even more potential profits. These methods are rather safe and even relaxing (or repetitive, depending on whom you ask), so they can be implemented when you just can't be bothered to do something more demanding, and you just want to take it easy while listening to your favorite music for example.
|1. Grand Exchange Flipping|
|Requirements - Initial Gold investment (the higher, the better), the Member status (recommended, as it will increase your potential profits greatly, thanks to the additional Grand Exchange offer slots)|
|Description - The Grand Exchange provides players with a lot of Gold making opportunities. Capitalizing on the difference between buy and sale prices of items is one of them.|
General Strategy - Buy items cheaply, and resell them at a profit. This sounds very straight forward, but in reality, requires some practice and a lot of price research. First of all, you have to check the margins of items which you want to flip. If margins are high enough (for example 200+ Gold per item), you should place a buy order for large quantities of those items, and resell them immediately at a higher price.
There are a lot of factors that should be taken into account while flipping the Grand Exchange. These include price margins, daily, weekly, and monthly price changes, item popularities, and so on. Describing all of those factors here would change this guide into a detailed guide about the GE (and we have done one of those already), so if you want to learn more about the Grand Exchange, and ways of making a lot of profit out of it, you should check our detailed Grand Exchange guide, here.
Potential profits - This method should be considered as an additional Gold making method, as it requires a hefty initial Gold investment. When done correctly Flipping can provide you with very high and steady profits, in exchange for a really small time investment.
The projected profit: 100k - 500k per hour (depending on the Grand Exchange situation, and the initial investment). Please note that you can engage in other activities after your orders are placed, because setting up a flip doesn't take a lot of time, and most of the process happens automatically.
|2. Level 1 Sapphire Ring Enchants|
|Requirements - Magic (level 7), Enchant Spell (level 1), Cosmic Rune (1 per enchant), Water Rune (1 per Enchant)/Staff of Water, some initial investment|
|Description - With this method, you will be enchanting Sapphire Rings bought on the Grand Exchange and selling them at a profit.|
|General Strategy - You should start the whole process by checking the margins (the difference between buy price of the Sapphire Rings, and the sale price of the Ring of Recoil, which is the Enchanted version) to evaluate potential profits. Items required for enchanting are specified in the "Requirements" section, and prices of those items should be taken into account when calculating profit margin (your profit will be equal to Ring of Recoil sale price - (Sapphire Ring buy price + enchant costs)). If margins are high enough you can proceed to buy Sapphire Rings. These rings are rather cheap and sold by players in large quantities, so buying a lot of them at a time is recommended. Now, that you are stacked up on Rings, you should begin the process of enchanting and reselling them|
Potential profits - Your profits will largely depend on the availability of Sapphire rings and Grand Exchange margins. With a margin of 150 Gold, and if you can Enchant 1000 Rings per Hour, you will make 150000 Gold/Hour. If margins are better, and there is a lot of Rings available, your profits can reach about 300000 Gold/Hour.
The projected profit: 150k - 300k per hour (depending on the Grand Exchange situation).
|3. Level 2 Emerald Neckale Enchants|
|Requirements - Magic (level 27), Enchant Spell (level 2), Air Runes (3 per enchant)/Staves of Air, Cosmic Rune (1 per enchant), some initial investment|
|Description - This can be considered as a continuation of the previous method. With this method, you will be enchanting Emerald Necklaces bought on the Grand Exchange and selling them at a profit.|
|General Strategy - First of all, you will have to check the margins (the difference between buy price of the Emerald Necklace, and the sale price of the Binging Necklace, which is the Enchanted version) to determine potential profits. Items required for enchanting are specified in the "Requirements" section, and prices of those items should be taken into account when calculating profit margin (your profit will be equal to Binding Necklace sale price - (Emerald Neckale buy price + enchant costs)). If margins are high enough you can proceed to buy Emerald Necklaces. These necklaces are crafted by players in large quantities, as they are quite cheap to make and therefore a good source of skill experience. We recommend you to put a large order for them because of that. Now that you bought a hefty amount of Emerald Necklaces, you should start enchanting and reselling them.|
Potential profits - If you can enchant 1000 of these per hour with a margin of 200, you will make 200000 Gold/hour. This number will rise a lot with better margins and the number of necklaces enchanted per hour. When there are a lot of necklaces available on the Grand Exchange, and the margin is closer to 300, you can make around 400000 Gold per hour.
The projected profit: 200k - 400k per hour (depending on the Grand Exchange situation).
|4. Making Ultracompost|
|Requirements - Level 22 Mining (optional), Fossil Island Unlocked (optional), Some initial investment (higher if you opt to do not gather Volcanic Ash by yourself)|
|Description - Ultracompost, the best compost in the game is worth more than its components, so making it will net you a profit.|
|General Strategy - There are two ways of doing this, one takes more time, but lets you make more money, and the second one is faster, but requires a more initial investment, and will provide smaller profits per item (but much higher profits overall). With the first method, you'll need level 22 Mining and access to Fossil Island. If you have those covered, you should make your way to the Island, and start to mine Volcanic Ash there, the more the better. After you have filled your bank with Ash, it is time to buy Supercompost on the Grand Exchange (divide the number of Volcanic Ashes you have by 2 to calculate how many Composts you need exactly). When your order is complete (you can place it before farming Volcanic Ashes to speed up the whole process), you should combine 1 Supercompost with 2 Volcanic Ashes to make 1 Ultracompost. Selling Ultracompost on the Grand Exchange will provide you with a nice profit. The second method involves you buying Volcanic Ash on the Grand Exchange, so it saves you time at the expense of some extra initial investment, and a little bit of risk.|
Potential profits - Your profits will depend on the method you chose, and on the current Grand Exchange prices. Currently making 1 Ultracompost will net you 132 Gold in you use materials from the Grand Exchange (buying it is a great option if you have enough Gold to invest in is, as it will rise potential profits really high, because you could make few thousand of Ultracomposts per hour potentially), and 264 if you'll farm Volcanic Ash yourself.
The projected profit: 250k - 500k per hour depending on your chosen method, current Grand Exchange prices, your initial investment, and your ability to relocate quickly (if using the first method).
|5. Tanning Dragonhides|
|Requirements - The Member status, some initial investment (~750k), Agility skill (optional; it will speed up the process by allowing you to run for longer), Stamina Potions (recommended; they will speed up the process, by providing you with some extra Energy, needed for running around)|
|Description - Dragonhide can be converted into Dragon leather with the help of a tanner, and then sold at a profit.|
|General Strategy - Just like with the other Grand Exchange related methods, the first thing you should do is check the margins. If the price difference between Dragonhides and Dragon Leather is high enough, you should buy as many Dragonhides as you can afford. Your freshly bought Dragonhides can be tanned in the city of Al Kharid. This process will involve a lot of running between the shop and the bank (that is why we have recommended Stamina Potions). After the tanning process is complete, you should proceed to sell your freshly made Dragon Leathers on the Grand Exchange at a profit.|
Potential profits - your profit will mostly depend on the current item margins, and the speed at which you are able to tan hides. With the current margins, your profits should oscillate around 350000 Gold per hour.
The projected profit: 300k - 500k per hour (depending on the Grand Exchange situation, and your speed).
|6. Converting basic Elemental Staves|
|Requirements - Level 42 Construction (in order to build a House), Teleportation Ring/House Teleport Tablets (optional - these will speed up the process and increase profit per hour), some initial investment|
|Description - Prices of basic Elemental Staves differ greatly on the Grand Exchange, and you can capitalize on this fact.|
|General Strategy - Firstly, you should compare prices of all basic Elemental Staves (Staff of Fire, Staff of Earth, Staff of Water, Staff of Air), and check the margin (the difference between buy price of the cheapest Staff, and the sale price of the most expensive Staff). Then you have to place a buy order for the cheapest Staves (if the price difference between cheaper staves is not that high, you can buy more than 1 kind, as it will increase the stacking-up process). Now that you are stacked up on cheap Elemental Staves it is time to head to your House. In your House, you need to build a Crystal Ball, and then convert bought Staves, into the ones that were the most expensive on the Grand Exchange, with the help of it. After the converting process is complete, all you have to do is sell your freshly converted Staves on Grand Exchange at a profit.|
Potential profits - Your profits will largely depend on the price difference between different kinds of Elemental Staves, your ability to relocate quickly, and your APM (actions per minute), as there will be A LOT of clicking during the Staff conversion process. If the price difference will be equal to around 500 Gold, and you will be able to convert 750 Staves in an Hour, then your profit will be 375000 Gold/Hour (this is a low estimate). If the price difference will be closer to 700 Gold and your APM will enable you to make about 1000 Staves in an Hour, then your profit will reach 700000 Gold/Hour (a high estimate, the real profit will be somewhere in the middle of the two mentioned values)!
The projected profit: 375k - 700k per hour (depending on the Grand Exchange situation, your APM, and your ability to relocate between your House, Bank, and the Grand Exchange quickly).
|7. Trading Javelins|
|Requirements - Some initial investment|
|Description - Grand Exchange prices of Javelins are much lower than NPC prices, all you have to do is find the right NPC Trader.|
|General Strategy - Place buy orders for a lot of Adamant Javelins and Rune Javelins on the Grand Exchange. After your orders are complete, head to the Void Knights Squire NPC located at the Void Knight's Outpost. Open the Trade window and sell 50-100 of each Javelin to the NPC (the buy price will decrease after that, so you shouldn't sell more at a time), then change the World and sell another 50 to 100 of each. You should repeat the whole process until all Javelins are sold.|
Potential profits - Your profits will mainly depend on the difference between the Grand Exchange and NPC Javelin prices. The current prices are as follows, Rune Javelin 240 Gold each (NPC price) and 161 Gold each (Grand Exchange price), Adamant Javelin 96 Gold each (NPC price) and 57 Gold (Grand Exchange price). If you buy 1000 of each, you will make around 118000 Gold, and it will take you just a few minutes to sell them, so there is a potential of making up to 1000000 Gold per hour with this method (if the conditions are right of course).
The projected profit: 400k - 1kk per hour (depending on the number of the Javelins available on the Grand Exchange, their current price, the speed at which you can sell them to an NPC, the GE and NPC price difference, and the number of other players currently selling these [the more people are selling Javelins, the more world-hopping you have to do, and world-hopping takes time]).
|8. Buying Death Runes from the Mage of Zamorak|
|Requirements - The Member status, Rune Mysteries quest completed, Enter the Abyss quest completed, Initial Gold investment (more Gold invested = more profit), food for health regeneration,|
|Description - Mage of Zamorak sells runes very cheaply, so runes bought from him can be sold at the Grand Exchange at a profit.|
|General Strategy - You should start by checking the Grand Exchange prices of Death Runes, if they are worth more than 220 Gold a piece, you are good to go (any lower than that, and your profits will be very marginal). Then, stack up on Food and Gold but remember that there is a risk of dying on your way to the Mage, so you should only take the number of Gold pieces that you are willing to risk. With your resources ready, is the time to visit the Mage of Zamorak. He is located around the Southern Wilderness mining site and at the Altar of Zamrok in Varrock (northeast of the Grand Exchange, in level 4 Wilderness). Please be aware that there are a lot of Skeletons surrounding him, and there is a possibility of meeting other, potentially hostile, players. After you reach the Mage, you should open his store and buy Death Runes from him (only buy down to 250). When you are done with purchasing runes and if you have money left, you should change your World and repeat the whole process. If Runes are bought out on a World, there is someone else doing the same thing most likely - it is a good idea to skip some Worlds in a situation like that. After all of your Gold is spent, it is time to make your way back to the Grand Exchange and sell them there at a profit.|
Potential profits - The Mage of Zamorak sells Death Runes at a price of 195 Gold each, and you can buy up to 250 of them per World. If you manage to buy 250 Runes on 100 Worlds, and the runes are worth 220 Gold on the Grand Exchange, you will make 625 Gold - GE tax per World-change run, and you should be able to complete a run in about an hour. If the price of the Runes is closer to 275, potential profits will rise to about 2000000 Gold (please note that buying 250 runes per World on 100 Worlds will require a total investment of 4,875000 million Gold)!
The projected profit: 600k - 2kk per hour (depending on the Grand Exchange situation, availability of Runes, and your initial investment).
Gold Farming methods with high requirements
These methods are best suited for more experienced and seasoned players with high skill levels. Thanks to higher requirements, and the lower accessibility, you will face less competition, compared to low-level methods, while performing them (most of the time, but you shouldn't treat this as a rule). These methods will also provide a more stable income, as they are not reliant on the Grand Exchange as much as low-level methods are.
|1. Humidifying Clay|
|Requirements - Level 68 Magic, Dream Mentor quest completed, Lunar Spellbook, Steam Battlestaff, Initial investment needed to purchase large quantities of Clay and Astral Runes|
|Description - Soft Clay is high demand among players training Crafting, you can fulfill those demand by Humidifying a lot of Clay.|
|General Strategy - This is a very straight forward and easy method. Firstly, buy a lot of Clay. Then prepare (buy, most likely) Astral Runes and Steam Battlestaff, these will maximize your humidifying efficiency which in turn will increase your profit per hour. With all those items ready, you should follow these steps: 1 - Withdraw all runes from your bank, 2 - Withdraw 27 Clay (to fill your inventory), 3 - Cast Humidify, 4 - Deposit Soft Clay, and then repeat steps from 2 to 4. This process can be sped up a lot by setting up proper hotkeys (Spellbook and Inventory should be set on Hotkeys). With a maximum efficiency, you should be able to cast about 815 Humidify spells per hour.|
Potential profits - your profits will depend on your efficiency and Clay prices. If you are able to cast Humidify on full equipment of Clay 815 times per hour, and thus make 22005 Soft Clay per 1h, your profits should reach 450000 Gold per hour (and you will also get 53000 Magic experience), but achieving the efficiency this high will require a lot of practice with your hotkeys and micromanagement. As you can see, this method is not that profitable, but it is great if you want to increase your Magic level quickly, and make some money in the process.
The projected profit: 225k - 450k per Hour (depending on your efficiency and current Grand Exchange prices).
|2. Mining Runite Ore|
|Requirements - Level 85 Mining, Food, Teleportation Ring (or some other way of getting back to town quickly), Dragon Pickaxe (recommended)|
|Description - Runite Ore is in very high demand on the Grand Exchange, as it is required for crafting Rune Weapons and Armor. You can take advantage of this, but mining it requires very high mining skill.|
|General Strategy - This is a very simple resource farming activity, but it requires level 85 Mining and skilling takes a LONG time. If your character is skilled enough, all you need to do is make your way to one of the Runite Ore mining locations (for example Lava Maze Runite Mine, Frozen Waste Plateau, or the Heroe's Guild Mine), and start Mining. After the mining site is depleted, you should change Worlds, and repeat the Mining process (server-hopping will increase your profits greatly). If your inventory is filled, it is time to port back to Town, store your newly Mined Ore, and return to the Mining site, or sell all of gathered Ore on the Grand Exchange. You should always be ready for a possible PvP encounters, as Runite Ore mining locations tend to attract a lot of hostile players, just waiting to kill you and take your stuff.|
Potential profits - Your profits will depend on the Runite Ore Grand Exchange price, and your ability to mine it quickly (this is why teleports/stamina potions etc. are recommended). Current GE Runite Ore price is 11400 Gold, so mining 75 Ores in an hour will get you 855000 Gold. This is a lowish estimate, and your profits will increase if you will farm Ore fast enough.
The projected profit: 700k - 1kk per hour (depending on your farming speed and the Grand Exchange prices).
|3. Pickpocketing Master Farmers|
|Requirements - level 38-94+ Thieving skill (the higher the skill, the better the profit), hard Ardoughe Diary completed (recommended), Full Rogue Equipment (recommended, as it will double your loot), Food (if your Thieving skill is below 94)|
|Description - Master Farmers carry a lot of Farming Seeds (some of the rarer ones worth over 35k Gold each), that sell well on the Grand Exchange, you can make a good profit by stealing them.|
|General Strategy - Head to the spot where Master Farmers are located (South of Varrock: Farming Guild, Draynor Village, North of East Ardoughe), and start pickpocketing them. High Thieving level is recommended for this, as it will increase your profits greatly (Pickpocketing success rate at level 40 thieving is only 60%, while at level 90 it rises to 98%). You will start making a quite decent profit at level 50 Thieving, as at this level you'll be able to equip full Rogue Equipment. At level 72 Thieving, you will have the possibility to complete the hard Ardougne Diary which will boost your pickpocketing by an additional 10%. The best profit, of course, is made if you have 94+ Thieving because at this level you will no longer fail your pickpocket attempts.|
Potential profits - your profits will greatly depend on your current Thieving skill and Rogue Equipment. We recommend that you do not start this activity if you have Thieving below level 50 and/or you do not have full Rogue Equipment. At level 50 Thieving with proper gear, you should make around 300000 Gold per hour, and at 94+ Thieving, with a fully optimized character, over 1000000 Gold per hour.
The projected profit: 150k (at level 38 Thieving) - 1,1kk (at 94+ Thieving with Full Rogue Equipment and hard Ardougne Diary completed) per hour (depending on current Grand Exchange Seed Prices).
|4. Death Rune Crafting in the Abyss|
|Requirements - Level 65-99 Runecrafting (99 Recommended, as it will grant the ability to craft 2 Death Runes per essence), Level 21 Mining (70+ recommended), Good amount of Hitpoints, Food, Pickaxe, Enter the Abyss and Mourning's Ends Part II quests completed, Runecrasfting Pouches, charged Amulets of Glory (recommended, for teleportation), A lot of Pure Essences,|
|Description - Crafting High-Level Runes in the Abyss can provide you with very good profits, and Death Runes, being the most expensive are the best, but also the most demanding choice for crafting.|
General Strategy - Make your way to the Mage of Zamorak, and ask him to teleport you to the Abyss. Your way will be blocked by rocks, use your pickaxe to create a way into the inner part of the Abyss, and find a Death Portal. Craft Death Runes at the portal (you will double your yield of runes if you have high enough Runecrafting skill, for Death Runes it is 99), teleport back to the bank, store your runes, and make your way back to the Death Portal; repeat until you run out of resources, and then sell freshly made Death Runes on the Grand Exchange. This is also a good way to increase your Runecrafting skill if you don't have it maxed out
You can also make Runes with lower skill requirements, those will provide you with a bit less profit, but should be still worth your while. Nature Runes require level 44 Runecrafting skill to make and 91 Runecrafting for doubles, and Law Runes require Level 54 Runecrafting to make and 95 Runecrafting for doubles.
Potential profits - Your profits will largely depend on your Runecrafting skill, your ability to relocate quickly, and the current Grand Exchange prices. If under level 99 Runecrafting you should be able to make about 2750 Death Runes per hour and at level 99 Runecrafting about 5500 Death Runes. Current Death Rune price on the Grand Exchange equals 228 Gold, and the price of the Pure Essence is 3 Gold.
The projected profit: 600k - 1,25kk per hour minus consumables costs (depending on your skill level [when under 99 Runecrafting you will make less than half of the maximum projected profit], and current Grand Exchange prices).
Making Nature Runes will get you about 500k - 1,1kk per hour minus consumables costs, and making Law Runes will get you about 450k - 1kk per hour minus consumables costs.
|Requirements - level 90+ in all Combat stats, High-end Combat Weapons and Gear, Melee and Range Void Equipment, a strong team (if you are able to complete a Raid with fewer teammates, your profits will be higher), appropriate skilling stats (these will depend on your team composition)|
|Description - Raids are a great source of valuable items, that are in very high demand among players. With a strong team, Raids can be completed in under 30 minutes which makes running them very profitable for highly skilled players.|
|General Strategy - Raids have a scaling Difficulty level, so the better the Team, the Harder the Raid, and the better the potential Rewards. Currently, there are two Raids in the OSRS, Chambers of Xeric and the Theatre of Blood, and both of them feature unique and valuable rewards for those brave enough to venture into them. Now, when it comes to Raiding... first of all, you should have an alt character strong enough for Scouting Runs inside the chosen Raid, as proper scouting will greatly increase the speed of your Raid progress. Then, most importantly, you should gather or join a team (all of your teammates should have strong Combat Gear and very high Combat stats). When your Team is sorted out and ready for action, you should Scout the chosen Raid properly to determine the optimal strategy and route. After Scouting is complete, it is time to lead your Teammates into the Raid and overcome all challenges that it has to offer, which will result in a hefty amount of valuable loot. This loot can be sold to other players at a large profit.|
Potential profits - your profits from Raiding will greatly depend on your Team's experience (experienced teams will be able to complete Raid runs quicker which will increase the overall profit), your and your Team's Combat levels (difficulty and rewards scale with average Combat Level), The size of your Team (fewer people to share the loot with equals more loot for you), loot splitting methods, and the current Grand Exchange prices of looted items. Overall, very strong, experienced and skilled Teams will make roughly twice as much as below average to average Teams.
The projected profit: 2,5kk - 6kk per Hour (depending on the size of your share and the factors mentioned above)
We have featured only a small portion of available OSRS Gold Farming methods, as we wanted to focus on some of the more unique, and yet somewhat proven ways of making a good profit. We hope that you have found this Guide informative and at least somewhat helpful.
Please do note that this is an early version of our guide, and we will be happy to receive constructive criticism, that will help us improve it, so leave your suggestions in the comment section below. We also plan to add further Gold-making activities to the list in the foreseeable future.

Herb Run OSRS Farming Guide (All Herb Patches!)
Why should I do herb runs?
OSRS herb runs have extremely low requirements to start doing efficiently. Each run can profit anywhere from 50k-100k and upwards depending on current prices. Herbs only take 80 minutes to grow fully, meaning you can do runs very frequently.
Each run only takes about five minutes to complete fully, sometimes even less if you have the most optimal teleports available. As early as level 32, you’ll be able to harvest one of the most profitable herbs.
On top of the great, passive money, you’ll be getting some relatively decent Farming experience. I’ve personally farmed herbs solely from levels 32-80 and made an incredible profit while training other skills. To put it simply, if you aren’t doing herbs run – you’re missing out!
Useful Quests & Unlocks
Before we begin doing our runs, let’s take a look at some helpful resources that will allow us to do more efficient runs. Note that absolutely none of these are required, but will improve your profits and run speeds significantly. Try to unlock as many of them as you can.
This is wieldable version of the Secateurs tool that you need to harvest herbs. When wielded, it grants you a 10% bonus yield of herbs. This difference is crucial to getting more herbs during your runs. It is unlocked by completing the Fairytale I – Growing Pains quest.
When using Ultracompost on an herb patch, you are guaranteed a minimum of six herbs. In addition to this, it will reduce the chance of your herbs being diseased by up to 90% per growth stage. This is super effective when farming any herbs that create a high profit and/or have expensive seeds. The cheaper Supercompost can also be effective, but only use this on cheaper seeds.
Herb runs will have you running around the map quite a bit. It’s best to have the lowest weight possible in order to allow your run energy to last longer. See this guide to find out more about Graceful and how to unlock it quickly.
If you plan on using the Port Phasmatys patch, this item is almost necessary. It is unlocked by completing the Ghosts Ahoy quest. It allows you to easily teleport to the Ectofuntus Temple which is very close to the herb patch in the area.
Explorer’s Ring 2+
Completion of the medium Lumbridge & Draynor diary will award you with this ring. It allows you to teleport to the cabbage patch just south of the Falador herb patch up to three times per day. In addition to this, it can also restore half of your run energy two times per day. The Explorer’s Ring 3 will allow you to teleport an unlimited number of times.
My Arm’s Big Adventure
In order to use the Troll Stronghold patch, you must complete the My Arm’s Big Adventure quest.
The Troll Stronghold patch is one of the most “out there” patches. Completing the Edgar’s Ruse quest will allow you to teleport to a close location. If you do not have the Magic level to use the spell, you can modify house teleport tablets to redirect to Trollheim.
Level 25 Construction
With this Construction level, you can talk to an Estate Agent to change your house location to just outside of the Hosidius House. This is an easy way to access the herb patch in Great Kourend.
If you have a low Agility level, no Graceful gear, or don’t have very many quick teleports unlocked – these will help you greatly. It is completely worth using 1-2 doses per run if necessary, you will still make a profit and your runs will be much more efficient.
There a total of 9 herb patches scattered around OSRS. About 5-6 of them are easily accessible for most accounts. Some have high requirements to access, but don’t fear! Herb runs are completely worth it even if you can only quickly access 4 patches.
South of Falador
This patch can be easily accessed by the Explorer’s Ring 2 cabbage patch teleport. If you do not have this item, use the Amulet of Glory to teleport to Draynor or use a Falador teleport.
The Catherby patch is one of the easiest to access. Use a Camelot teleport and run east until you reach the patch. If you’re using the Lunar Spellbook teleport, you will run north instead.
Use a Trollheim teleport to the top of the mountain. Use the Agility shortcuts to make your way down the west side. Follow the path north-west past the troll camp and into the Stronghold. Head up the ladder inside to access the patch.
Change your house location to Great Kourend. Use a house teleport to quickly access this area. From here, run north until you reach the patch. Xeric’s Talisman is another good option here.
With completion of the Morytania Elite diaries, you can use the herb patch on Harmony Island. A Harmony Island teleport tablet is the easiest way to access this area. The Arceuus spellbook also has a teleport, but requires at least 60% Arceuus favour as well as level 65 Magic.
Accessing this patch is only worth it if you have the Ectophial unlocked. The run otherwise is too far/long to be worth your time. Use your Ectophial and run to the west until you reach the patch.
If you have access to the Ardougne Cloak 2+, you can use the cape to teleport directly to the herb patch. Otherwise, the easiest method would be an Ardouge teleport, then run north to the patch.
Use the fairy ring network to teleport to code DKS. Head west from here and speak to Larry to travel on his boat. When you arrive, head to the east and enter the cave. Continue south-west until you reach a boulder that can be crossed to reach the patch.
An herb patch is available in the tier 2 or higher Farming Guild. It can be very easily accessed by the Farming Guild teleport on the Skills Necklace.
Now that you’ve decided which locations you want to use, and have gathered up all of your helpful gear, it’s time to choose what type of Herb to plant. Prices will vary, but the chart below will give you a good idea of what to plant. Some herbs offer more experience, but less money, and vice versa. Even if you’re doing Herb runs for experience and not pure profit, some herbs will still be very beneficial for both.
Profit is calculated assuming that you have the Magic Secateurs and are using Ultracompost.
You’re now ready to do your first herb run! Your inventory should consistent of herb seeds, one ultracompost for every patch that you want to use, and all of the teleportation items that you need. Bring along a Spade, Seed Dibber and a Rake in case the patches grow weeds after harvesting.
Make sure to use compost on the disease-free patches because it will increase the yield! If you notice that you run out of energy during your runs, consider bringing a Stamina Potion.
The path you take will be different depending on which patches you choose to do. I personally do: Ardougne -> Troll Stronghold -> Canifis -> Hosidius -> Catherby -> Falador.
When your inventory fills up with herbs, use them on the Tool Leprechaun to note them. This saves an incredible amount of time by not having to bank between each patch. Keep in mind that Grimy herbs are worth more money than cleaned herbs, if you’re just in it for the profit – do not clean them. Ironmen can benefit by cleaning them after harvesting so that you do not have to clean herbs in bulk at a later time.
Repeat your run every 80 minutes for maximum profit!

OSRS Farming Guide | 1-99 Farming | Most Efficient Methods
Posted 1 year agoSo I heard you want to get 99 farming?
If you are either a newbie or a skilled player, you are definitely going to be overwhelmed when looking for guides on how to farm and most importantly, how to get from level 1 to 99 Farming. There are plenty of different methods, combinations of methods, variations to those methods, variations of the combinations of methods… Yes, there are definitely too many different ways to go here. With so many different methods and whatnot, this farming guide will attempt to curate the most important information, and provide you with the best methods to get from level 1 to 99. But in the end, it will always remain up to you to decide what to do and what suits your style in gaming. You are here to have fun, not to follow the rules. So go ahead and be a rebel. Get 99 farming doing just herb runs, if that's your thing.
The items you need.The best place to get your farming equipment – Sarah’s Farming Shop in Falador Some of these other, most useful items and spells include: - Urns (they give you additional farming experience while training, so you’ll definitely want these) - compost/supercompost (these are used on a Farming patch before you plant a crop, and they increase your harvest amount. Supercompost is naturally better. You can alternatively use the Fertile Soil spell if you are on the lunar spellbook) - Amulet of Glory (it provides several bonuses, but the most important thing is that it offers useful teleports) - Magic secateurs (you can get them from Fairy Tale 1 quest, I’ll talk more about quests later on. The magic secateurs increase the yield of allotments, herbs, hops and grape vines by 10%, which is more than useful in the long run) - Amulet of bounty (it gives you a 25% chance to save your seeds when planting them in allotment patches) - Farmer’s outfit (it’s important to get the full set in order to receive the biggest boost and besides, the outfit is easy and cheap to obtain. The full set gives you a 2.5% exp boost for every farming action) - A bunch of teleportation items (you should check up on them on wiki as there are several of them and I can’t put all of them here)
The Beginning. (Levels 1-15)
What To Plant
Where To PlantAt the very start, one of the best things to do (according to most) is planting seeds on allotment patches. The process here is unfortunately repetitive and slow, but that’s farming for you! The best crops to plant are potatoes, cabbages, onions, and tomatoes, all of which award certain amount of exp. However, it’s much better to stick to potatoes up to level 5, then from level 5 to 15, you should only use onions, which award you the most exp during these levels. Furthermore, it’s always a good idea to hire a local farmer to protect your crops. If you don’t, you’ll have to keep coming back to check up on them so they don’t die. There are 5 main allotments (South of Falador, West of Port Phasmatys, Southeast corner of Great Kourend, North of Catherby, and North of Ardougne) and an additional one on Harmony Island for which you can only gain access after finishing the Great Brain Robbery quest. This place has a leprechaun store but there are no farmers to take care of your crops. Speaking of leprechauns, it’s always useful to have one with you as they are very practical for storing Farming tools, so you don’t have to fear filling up your inventory. They usually hang around any of the standard Farming patches. You can also use them to exchange your harvested items for money.Taking care of your cropsThe most important thing in farming is taking good care of your crops. They can easily die if you don’t and then you’ll just have wasted your time on nothing. Like I previously said, local farmers are basically a must if you want to make sure your crops are always protected. In addition, crops can also get diseases which, if not treated, will also result in the death of your crops. If they get diseased you should use a cure potion (always stock up on these just in case) or a cure plant spell (requires 66 Magic and lunars). Even if your crops end up dead for one way or another, you can always use the resurrect crops spell to bring them back. However, you need 78 Magic and Arcuess spellbook. You should also always have the Geomancy spell in mind. It’s quite a useful one as it allows you to keep track of your plants and check their current status. This way you’ll always know if your crops are done growing and if they are dead. It will also show you whether or not you’re protecting all of your crops with the local farmer. When you cast the spell, a window opens up in which you can see the status of crops. You can leave the window open if you want and it will keep showing the current status, so you don’t have to keep casting the spell all the time. This is an example of the window that pops up when you use the Geomancy spell. Neat and useful as everything is in one pace.
Farming quests as an alternative to planting crops (levels 1-38)
|Recipe for Disaster (Freeing the Goblin generals)||None||1,000|
|Fairytale I - Growing Pains||None||3,500|
|Forgettable Tale of a Drunken Dwarf||17||5,000|

Oak logs, Oak roots, Oak leaves
Willow logs, Willow roots, Willow leaves
Maple logs, Maple roots, Maple leaves
Yew logs, Yew roots, Yew leaves
|10 Cactus Spine|
Magic logs, Magic roots, Magic leaves
Fruit Tree RunsFor the advanced levels, you will need to start doing tree and herb runs in order to get more exp. This part (just like regular farming at allotments) is an integral part of gaining Farming levels, and it’s equally simple and easy. However, it’s slow. The tree runs are the slowest but they give you the most exp. Most trees take 8 hours to grow fully, so you will be able to do other things (quests, or even better the mini-game I just talked about) in order to use this time efficiently. Of course, you can also just stop playing the game during that time, the trees will still blossom. The herb runs take much less time so you should definitely do those as well, at least during the time the trees are growing as all trees take a lot of time to fully grow. Naturally, there’s nothing complicated here, you only need to use farming tools and all that stuff we already covered, plant the seeds, wait for them to grow, harvest them, and then replant. Simple as that and it awards a bunch of Farming experience. But before you rush with assumptions, you can’t do just the runs because it will take you forever to get to 99. You have to combine everything we covered in order to get to the highest level in as little time as possible. However, you certainly have to do a lot of these runs, so you’ll need some specific crops for that. After careful examination, I found the best ones to use for specific levels during which these specific crops yield you the most exp possible. All of these crops are actually trees, so you’ll have a lot of free time while you wait for them to grow. During that time if you decide to do everything I already told you (the quests, mini-game, herb runs), you’ll get to 99 in no time. Here are the trees you should use from level 15-99:
Level 15-30: Oak TreesYou should stick to just Oak Trees as they give the most exp during these levels.
Level 30-45: Willow Trees & Various Fruit TreesYou need to start doing fruit tree runs now. From 30-33: Apple trees then, From 33-39: Banana Trees, From 39-42: Orange Trees, From 42-45 with Curry Trees.
Level 45-60: Maple Trees & Various Fruit TreesFrom 45-50: Curry Trees, From 51-57: Pineapple Trees, From 57-60: Papaya Trees.
Levels 60-75: Yew Trees & Various Fruit TreesFrom 60-80: Papaya Trees, From 68-75: Palm Trees.
Levels 75-99: Magic Trees & Palm TreesYou're now at the home stretch. No other trees give more exp than these two. Just keep doing magic and palm tree runs until you reach level 99.

Farming is a skill in which players grow crops using seeds and harvest useful items from them, or more commonly, harvest the plant itself. The crops grown range from the standard staples of vegetables, fruit trees, herbs, hops, to more exotic and unusual crops such as wood-bearing trees, cacti, and mushrooms. The harvested items have wide range of uses, but are mostly used to train Herblore or Cooking, or simply eaten as food. Many players sell their harvest for a significant profit.
Once players have reached the intermediate level range and beyond, they can begin to plant wood-bearing trees. Player grown trees function just like their standard equivalents, which can be chopped down and regenerate after a short period of time to yield Woodcutting experience and logs. Player grown woodcutting trees have the added benefit of being only accessible to the player who grew them, which means that players will not need to compete to gather their own tree's wood.

The first thing any player will do when they begin training this skill is to rake away the weeds from one of the many farming patches found scattered around RuneScape. Once cleared, players have the option of applying compost to the patch, which will decrease the chance of the crop becoming diseased, and will also possibly increase the yield of the crop once it reaches maturity. Players can also cast the Fertile Soil spell from the Lunar spellbook at any point during the plant's growth cycle to apply supercompost.
Compost can be bought in farming shops, or obtained by placing a total of 15 weeds or various other unwanted vegetables into one of the compost bins. Supercompost, which results in an even higher yield and further lowers chances of disease, is obtained by filling the compost bin with higher level farming produce such as pineapples, watermelons, calquats, coconuts, and high end herbs. Ultracompost may be made by adding 25 volcanic ash to a full bin of supercompost or adding 2 volcanic ash to a bucket of supercompost.
Seeds are usually easy to obtain. They can be bought from players and stalls, stolen via Thieving or obtained as drops from an enormous variety of monsters. Any lower or intermediate level seeds are usually very cheap, ranging from 1-20 coins each, while the higher level seeds, such as tree, fruit tree, and especially upper end herb seeds, are usually thousands of coins each, if not more.
After growing for a preset period of time crops will mature and can then be harvested, provided that the crops have not become diseased and died while growing. Once planted, crops grow even if the player is not online, so one can plant a seed and come back at any time. Once the crops are fully grown they will remain in the patch indefinitely until harvested; that is, they will not die once fully matured.
Although this would seem to imply that players can simply plant their seeds and go back to their lives, there is a problem with this tactic. At lower levels, unattended crops are extremely unlikely to live long enough to reach maturity unattended. Even at relatively high levels there will always be a significant chance that crops will sicken and die. Therefore, all levels are recommended to pay nearby gardeners to watch crops. Doing so prevents the selected crops from dying, thus guaranteeing their reaching maturity for harvest.
Gardeners all charge for their services, but not in coins. The price that they ask depends on the crop that the player asks them to watch. For example, the price for protecting a patch of potatoes is 2 buckets of compost while the price for protecting a patch of onions is 1 sack of potatoes. They will also accept your payment-items in noted form. Gardeners cannot be paid to protect herbs or flowers. When the player has 50% favour with Hosidius House, in Zeah, the allotment, flower, and herb patches there will be protected by the local farmer at all times. Players can also unlock two herb patches which are perpetually protected from disease, for free, by completing My Arm's Big Adventure and Making Friends With My Arm.
A common mistake for players who are new to farming is that they tend to wait next to their patch for their crops to fully grown to become harvestable. Reasons why players wait is because crops do have the tendency to become diseased. However, many crops take more than an hour to grow fully, and most introductory crops take over half an hour. Do not waste your time standing near the farming patches wondering when your crops will grow; instead, do something else. If you fear your crops will become diseased there are a few ways to prevent this from happening while you are away (to most crops) and that will be further explained later. In addition, your plants will grow even if you are online playing or offline.
A good way to jumpstart your farming is to do the quest Fairy Tale I - Growing Pains. The experience reward will raise level 1 Farming to level 17. By completing this quest, players will also receive a pair of magic secateurs which, when worn, will increase the yield of crops by 10% while harvesting.
An uncommon, but helpful item is the amulet of nature. It is tradeable in its unenchanted form, but once enchanted cannot be traded. It can be bound to a patch by "using" the amulet on the patch. Once bound, and if worn, the amulet will alert you if your plant becomes diseased or has fully grown. You may also "rub" the amulet to check on your bound patch at any time. It can only be bound to one patch at a time, and you may only have one amulet. If worn when harvesting, the amulet will provide a 5% yield increase. This boost does not stack with the magic secateurs and takes precedence over them, so if magic secateurs are available to you it is recommended that you unequip the amulet before harvesting.
See Farming training for more information on levelling up.
For farming there are certain tools you will need to use, whether it's using a rake to clear a plot or digging up dead plants with a spade. Below is a table of the basic tools and their uses.
