    Re: basic farming guide

    Is it possible to plant a field using a keyboard command? All other processes of farming can be done from the keyboard, but it appears I have to mouse click on the "make" box in the crafting window to initiate the process.

    Thanks!

    Question Re: basic farming guide

    Hey all, great threat on farming!

    Just wondering... I hit Supreme Master Farmer last night, and after farming close to 3000 fields, I only make back 50% - 60% of my seeds from planting (not using crit soil, and planting in regular fields). Have any of you made back more seeds than you plant? Just wondering. I want to build a seed reserve of rare pipeweed seeds...

    The rare pipe weed seeds (those not for sale at vendor) should be pretty easy to amass once you begin farming that type of weed. Each poor plant returns 3 seeds instead of 1. So as long as you get at least 2 poor plants per field you are gaining. When trying to get seeds do not use crit soil though. The scary time is if you only have 5 seeds to begin with, if you don't pull the required 2 poor plants you don't have enough to even plant a second field. In fact untill you have a good supply in the bank farming these things can be nerve wracking.

    Re: basic farming guide

    well this guide is going to be obsolete with the new farming changes. what a shame. i don't even know if i am going to re edit this to reflect the changes or not. and the same for the guide to pipeweed.

    If you do decide to edit it for the new changes, I am happy to provide whatever information and insight that I can. This has been a wonderful resource and such things should be preserved, even in the face of adversity.

    Re: basic farming guide

    Also note with crop rotation like this, you can click multiple fields at once and they will queue up to be harvested in the order that you clicked them. To prevent field decay, click on your first crop planted, then the last , the click the outter corners of the rest as you harvest your 1st crop. This works with ANY harvesting tool, as you do not have to pause between crops to wait for one to disappear.

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

    Heyyy folks well I just revised Neel's guide to reflect the May 2011 changes and added a few things to it like a leveling guide and a guide for the new pipe-weed. I've added a list of farming crit drops and what they're for as well. I notice that it's not easy to find Neel Sweetleaf's Guide though; I pretty much have to come to this thread and follow the link here. Is there any good way to make it so that the sort of new-to-crafting players who can actually use such a thing can find it?

    Anyway cheers all, and here's the link again:

    Thanks, Lith, for revising the guide! I came here to find a list of all the crit items that farming produces and what they are used for. The information is somewhat scattered (had to find the cook's items in the Cook forum). It would be very helpful for all the different crit item information to be posted from the viewpoint of a farmer's harvest -- possibly first by Farming Tier, then within each tier subclassed by field type (flower, grain, vegetable). An alphabetical list of critical items that can be harvested and what they are used for would also be extremely helpful. I don't have enough LOTRO knowledge (or computer expertise) to do this yet, but perhaps someone else could.

    Quite welcome! A crit list is a good idea, too. So I just added one. I didn't do an alphabetical one, but I did include the uses for the items with their listings in a by-tier format. Hope you guys find it useful!

    Eastemnet Update

    Hey folks, just updated the guide again with the the Eastemnet Tier and the new RoR info, including the important stuff like the new limit of 12 fields (instead of just 6) and the addition of a slight chance of crest/sigil/shard/etc drops from fields.
