An Introduction to Farming 120

An Introduction to Farming 120

Hello little turnips, pumpkins, and root vegetables of all kinds! It’s time for the most agrestic, most majestic update of the year – 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. We’ve gathered a few of them for your perusal – but you’ll have to figure the others out for yourself!

Animal Perk
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, you’ll be able to build small, medium, and large pens to hold them in – as well as a specially reinforced breeding pen for, well, you know. Regular old planks and nails aren’t quite strong enough to contain these mighty beasties, so you’ll 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 you’ve 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.

Farming Guild

Meanwhile, back on Manor Farm, there’s been all kinds of agrarian action going on. For one thing, the upstairs of Granny’s house has been transformed into an all-new, all-purpose Farming Guild.

Farming Requests

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 – which is you, of course! For every request you complete, you’ll earn Reputation.

You’ll get three types of request throughout the week.

  • Easy requests, which refresh every day
  • Medium requests, which refresh every three days
  • Hard requests, which refresh every 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.

    Reputation

    You’ll gain Reputation when you gain XP from a patch (apart from when planting), harvest produce from an animal, or complete a Farming Request.

    So what’s Reputation good for, anyway? Well, for one thing, you’ll unlock new rewards for your farm as you climb the tiers of Reputation. Take a look:

    Reputation Tier Amount of Rep required Unlock / Notes
    Beginner Farmer 0
    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 isn’t all about shovelling manure and tending to your adoring flock. This update also brings a bountiful harvest of new crop types.

    Cactus Patch

    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.

    New Fruits

    Feeling fruity? You can now grow avocados, ciku fruit, mangoes, guarana, lychees and carambola on bushes and trees all over Gielinor. Yummy yummy!

    Primal Feasts

    Phew, I’m tuckered out after absorbing all that info, aren’t you? How about we sit down and devour a Primal Feast?

    The Primal Feast is the new BiS food, but it’s not easy to come by. You’ll 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:

    Primal Starter

  • Raw Oculi Apoterrasaur meat
  • Rainbow sweetcorn
  • Cannonball cabbage
  • Sweet potato
  • Primal Main

  • Raw Pavosaurus Rex meat
  • Raw Malletops meat
  • Red onion
  • Heirloom tomato
  • Primal Dessert

  • White strawberries
  • Golden watermelon
  • Dragonfruit
  • Mango
  • Ready to get your hands dirty? You can start your journey to 120 today, so grab your rakes, pull on your wellies, and join us down on the farm!
