Farmer is a harvesting job which mostly concerns crops. ALL crops. My husband only likes wheat, but know that there are many others in our World.
The rest of us farmers also have the chance to pick fruits from certain trees, but we won't be able to grow them ourselves.
When a resource reaches maturity, you can collect its seeds or fruit. The resource is not destroyed, but it will regress. If you leave it alone, new seeds or fruits will grow from it.
You can plant the seeds you get from a resource to grow more of it. You have to be careful though, because not all seeds are suitable for all soils. As far as the farming profession is concerned, you can't go far wrong if you head for the fields: all sorts of grains seem to like it there!
As well as harvesting, there is another thing you can do with crop families. You can cut them to get the plant itself. Be careful though, cutting a resource is an irreversible action and once you've done it, the plant is destroyed and won't grow back unless you plant them again!
When cutting a resource, you'll see a purple-ish aura growing on you, that's because whenever you cutt a resource you gain Stasis (and therefore, you lose Wakfu). On the other hand, when planting a resource, you'll see a light-blue aura growing on you, wich means you're gaining Wakfu (and loosing Stasis). Not only you need to be careful with the amount of Stasis/Wakfu you want to play with, but also you need to watch over the Ecosystem. Astrub is a neutral Nation, so nothing aside of the lost of area-bonuses is going to happen if you ruin the Ecosystem. But, beware! Outside of Astrub, you'll have to respect each Nations Ecosystems, or else you could end up in prission!
If you go to a millstone you'll be able to grind your grains into flour. Then bakers from all over Amakna will snatch it out of your hands. I'd advise you to get a few good business relationships going, if you don't want to end up ground to a pulp yourself!
Before patch 1.0 on March 28, 2012 Scythes were needed to harvest goods. Sometime before September 2014 Farming had to be learned from a Clan Member. |}
