 This is the regular Farming guide, the guide for ironman / hardcore ironman players can be found here.

Farming is a skill in which players can plant seeds to grow and harvest herbs. The herbs can be used to but are mostly used to train Herblore.

How do I get to the farming spot?

There are two spots where you can train farming in Etherum and each have their own benefits. The one in Catherby can be collected from very quickly, allowing for fast experience gains. While the patch in the Donator Zone offers double the experience but picking the herbs is slower but does it automatically.

Catherby Patch (Non-Donator)

You can use the city teleports to go to Catherby, and run north of the town to the patch.



As mentioned before, it is much faster to pick herbs from this patch. However, you do get less experience per seed.

Donator Zone Patch

You can get to this patch by using the "Donator Zone" teleport which is found in the Donator section of the Quest Tab. When you arrive from your teleport, simply run east and you will see a farming patch.



Where to Acquire Farming Supplies

In order to train Farming you need 4 different items, these are:

  • A Seed Dibber
  • A Rake
  • A Watering Can
  • The Type of Seeds you are planting

You can buy all of these supplies from Wydin, who is located in the buildings right beside each of the Farming patches.

Use the seed of your choice on the patch.
