    So, pipe-weed...

    Hi everyone,

    I am a farmer/pipe-weed enthusiast from way back (worked my way through cross breeding in open beta/early lotro).

    After a long hiatus I am getting back into the game and one thing I wanted to do was update a video I made in 2007 that shows all the pipe-weed. (The original video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9p5TwcEy2w)

    I have discovered and read about the farming changes that occurred not too long ago, but I am still uncertain about pipe-weed seeds.

    Are Fungo's seeds no longer sold by a vendor? And since cross breeding seems to be eliminated, is it no longer possible to obtain Goldfire seeds?

    Any advice or help is appreciated!

    Thanks for the encouragement! I just got a step closer to remaking this thing because I found some Fungo's and Goldfire poor plants in my bag, which should yield some seeds!

    Will be sure to post back once I get to scratch around in the dirt some.

    Well my joy was short lived when I looked closer and discovered that farmers no longer have the recipe for processing poor plants into seeds.

    IIRC, now you just plant for instance expert lvl seeds, and there is a chance you will harvest seeds/pipe-weed from either the expert or artisan tier. Unfortunately it is random, so there is nothing you can do to make the rare ones come out more often.

    Ahh, so potentially Master level seeds could yield some Supreme level stuff...interesting. I will check this out when I get a chance to play later today. Thanks for the info.

    You were right on the money my friend, I have just harvested some Fungo's seeds from a Wizard Fire Field.

    THANKS!

    You're also still able to get some seeds from goblin camps: they have a chance to drop from chests there.

    I heard the stories about cross breeding and have always wanted to try it myself. I even stored rare seeds in my vault for a while, but I couldn't find the recipes to cross breed and get the awesome pipeweed from it. Has it been removed entirely from the game? Or am I just missing something?

    Yes it is gone from the game. You get what used to be cross-bred pipe-weed seeds as random loot from the pipe-weed fields one tier below them. (So Master seeds from Well-tended Expert Pipe-weed, etc).

    At launch and for most of the game there were cross-bred field recipes like this:

    Sort of an answer.

    (Purple) pipeseed drops from pipeweed farming

    Seed drops are same or +1 higher in level.

    Top tier Fungo / Gold fire only redrops itself

    As I understand Tier7 (Yet to actually grow), the wild pipeseed should generate any/all purple pipeseeds. in the same way wildflowers generate all dye crits.

    anyone with experience please add to this thread. I know I am bringing it back, but many people are still asking these questions. I farmed over 500 crops just to build a base of seed for testing. Insanity I know.
