    Re: basic farming guide

    question: does it matter how many fields you plant at once? Another guide I just read said if you plant more than 5 they will start disappearing bfore you harvest. Is that true? Just picked up farming and found your guide to be very helpful and informative. Thanks!

    Re: basic farming guide

    I usually stand in one spot, plant a field, rotate 90 degrees and plant another field, rotate 90 degrees and plant another field and then once more so that I have four fields planted at which point I harvest the first one planted then the others in order of planting. Even if I get distracted in Kin chat, I have not had a field decay on me before I could harvest it. A fifth field might be pushing it but 4 presents no problem at all.

    The fields stay for a set period of time. If you don't harvest in that set period of time, they die.
    I believe the maximum number of fields you can plant before you harvest is really dependent on the quality of your farming tools. Better tools make for faster planting, so you can plant more fields before they start dying.

    I, for one, plant and harvest one at a time.
    Yes, it's kind of boring, but I use the time to toss about witty banter in chat.

    Re: basic farming guide

    I usually plant 5 fields at a time. I've found that to be optimum between harvesting and planting. I plant the fields right on top of each other and then wait for each one to go away after they're harvested before I move to the next one. Your cursor will change when the next field is ready.

    Anymore than 5, I've not really been able to get to harvest them.

    Re: basic farming guide

    I plant 5 to 6 at time and rotate a few degrees so they are not stacked completely on each other. It makes it easier to harvest and quicker too as you don't have to hunt around as much to find an active crop. The timing is about right for superior steel farming tools but it is better with the higher level farming tools.

    Re: basic farming guide

    I find that the best way to do it is plant 6 at a time. What you do is in the options menu, select auto-matic loot all. Then plant all 6 on top of each other and once you finish number 6 use the Delete key to select the field an U-key to use it. I find this to work rather well.

    Yes. This by far the best way to do it. Allows much more afk time during farming. Everyone that is not using Delete+U+Loot All should start today.

    Re: basic farming guide

    This guide was excellent! Thank you! I just rolled a cook and was wondering about farming with another alt. Now I know what to expect.

    What would it take to get this stickied? I stumbled across it linked in another thread.

    Re: basic farming guide

    *BUMP*

    This was a great help. I knew when I planted 15 fields and didn't get them all I wasn't just crazy. The next time it happened the light bulb went on that 5 was pretty much all that could be done at a time. This very important information should be in the farming guide you get when becoming a farmer because it's different than other crafts.

    Also thanks for the delete + U tip! Anything to speed things up.

    Sticky, please!
