Hello little turnips, pumpkins, and root vegetables of all kinds! Itís time for the most agrestic, most majestic update of the year Ė Farming 120!
For those who aren't as familiar with RuneScape's skilling system, this means we're raising the Farming level cap from 99 all the way up to 120. But we've made sure there's plenty of soil-toiling and green fingered frivolity to keep you busy on the way there.
The Ranch Out of Time
The Potterington family have expanded their operation to Anachronia! Head to the west side of the island and click the Magic Tree to hop across to The Ranch Out of Time, where Prehistoric Potterington and Stan the Sheepdog have set up shop raising reptiles of all shapes and sizes.
There are a total of 14 new animals to raise, all with their own unique perks. Weíve gathered a few of them for your perusal Ė but youíll have to figure the others out for yourself!
|Oculi Apoterrasaur||A 3% chance of receiving an extra piece of meat when skinning a Big Game Hunter creature. Raised to 5% at Tier 2.|
|Bagrada Rex||5% chance per tier to conserve a bomb when thrown.|
|Malletops||Increases the duration of Barricade by 1.8 seconds per tier.|
|Varanusaur||10% chance per tier to make 4 doses instead 3 doses when mixing Weapon Poison or Antipoison potions.|
|Corbicula Rex||Increases the Critical Hit chance of Meteor Strike by 20% per tier.|
As you level up, youíll be able to build small, medium, and large pens to hold them in Ė as well as a specially reinforced breeding pen for, well, you know. Regular old planks and nails arenít quite strong enough to contain these mighty beasties, so youíll need to use native materials to build the pens:
|Name||Deed Cost (in beans)||Farming Level||Construction Level||Material Cost (Wood, Vines, Stone)|
|Small Pen||100||42||45||1000 of each|
|Medium Pen||500||76||80||25,000 of each|
|Large Pen 1||1,000||98||90||75,000 of each|
|Large Pen 2||1,000||104||90||75,000 of each|
|Breeding Pen||1,000||42||55||100,000 of each|
The existing Player Owned Farm collection log has been expanded to fit all the new animals, including their variants. Can you collect them all?
If youíve been partaking in skilling activities around The Land Out of Time, you might already have a few dinosaur eggs to start off with. If not, you can buy frogs and salamanders from the Farm Shop in The Ranch Out of Time.
Meanwhile, back on Manor Farm, thereís been all kinds of agrarian action going on. For one thing, the upstairs of Grannyís house has been transformed into an all-new, all-purpose Farming Guild.
The most important function of the Farming Guild is to help novice farmers get on their feet with regular deliveries of supplies from their most productive guild member Ė which is you, of course! For every request you complete, youíll earn Reputation.
Youíll get three types of request throughout the week.
These requests ramp up in difficulty the longer it takes you to complete them, so the rewards you get increase with each tier, too. Completing Daily Requests will get you 2,750 Reputation. Three-Day Requests will get you 5,500 Reputation, and Weekly Requests will get you a whopping 13,750 Reputation!
Farming Requests are also the only way to get hold of the rare Brassica Primer, a specialist tonic that will increase the XP gained from Farming patches by 10% for 15 minutes.
Youíll gain Reputation when you gain XP from a patch (apart from when planting), harvest produce from an animal, or complete a Farming Request.
So whatís Reputation good for, anyway? Well, for one thing, youíll unlock new rewards for your farm as you climb the tiers of Reputation. Take a look:
|Reputation Tier||Amount of Rep required||Unlock / Notes|
|Apprentice Farmer||4,000||4th Spirit tree with 114 Farming|
|Practiced Farmer||10,000||Hard Farming Requests available & Limpwurt Root yield is doubled|
|Competent Farmer||25,000||Remote Farm Machine at the Farming Guild & Shiny animals sell for 10% more beans|
|Expert Farmer||75,000||Less chance of animals getting ill & Small animal buyers will buy twice as many animals|
|Master Farmer||225,000||Bloodwood tree at the Farming Guild & Medium animal buyers will buy twice as many animals|
|Senior Master Farmer||1,100,000||5% increased chance of a shiny animal being born & Large animal buyers will buy twice as many animals|
|Grandmaster Farmer||2,500,000||All animals sell for 10% more beans|
New Crops And How To Get Their Seeds
Of course, life on the farm isnít all about shovelling manure and tending to your adoring flock. This update also brings a bountiful harvest of new crop types.
A new cactus patch can be built in Anachronia. You can use it to grow regular cacti, but you can also grow dragonfruit and golden dragonfruit when you reach the appropriate level.
Feeling fruity? You can now grow avocados, ciku fruit, mangoes, guarana, lychees and carambola on bushes and trees all over Gielinor. Yummy yummy!
The stinkshroom and tombshrooms are now available to grow and harvest. Just make sure you hold your nose around them.

At 120 Farming, youíll unlock the 120 Master Cape, which gets you the following perks:
By using a Potion of Harvest, you can produce vegetables that would knock the socks off of even the snootiest Village Fete judge. Your garden-variety greens will be transformed before your eyes into Mega Produce, which you can use to create Primal Feasts.
|Boring Regular Crops||Mega Produce|
Phew, Iím tuckered out after absorbing all that info, arenít you? How about we sit down and devour a Primal Feast?
The Primal Feast is the new BiS food, but itís not easy to come by. Youíll need to use 99 Cooking to whip up three separate courses: Primal Starter, Primal Main, and Primal Dessert, and then combine all three into the Primal Feast with 115 Cooking. Of course, an entire Primal Feast is way too much to consume in one sitting, even for the hungriest dinosaur, so you'll be able to split it into four Primal Portions to consume at your leisure. Each Portion heals 2500hp.
Here are the recipes:
