RuneScape patches in changes to player-owned farms

we'll bank this up

Changes to player-owned farms are in the air today for RuneScape; the game’s patch this week implements changes announced recently. Experience gained for individual activities will tend to be lower (encouraging more active play and effort), animal breeding will require more effort (also encouraging more active play and more player-to-player interaction), and animals will eat more. The official post on the changes even describe these as nerfs, but the patch announcement frames them as positives for the health of the game overall.

The patch also coincides with the presumed final round of testing for the bank placeholder changes, so you can go ahead and test those out on the game’s test server when not working on your now less-rewarding farm. There are also an assortment of bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements alongside the big updates, so one can only hope they ameliorate any sting of making your farm that much less efficient.

As someone who did that for awhile, they certainly DON’T need to ‘eat more’. Since if you run shrooms, they devour approximately 30 per day, and it was crazy hard to supply 3 pens worth (90 shrooms) without just going and wasting your time blessing logs in the swamp which literally does nothing for you skill-wise. Or you’d have to go collect shrooms out on the arc…which also takes way too long time-wise. But shrooms were ‘the way to go’ leveling-wise AND for selling to earn the farm currency…only topped by dragons, but those were slower to breed, so effectively shrooms were the way to go.

This was basically another way to get you wasting your time, sitting there doing something/attempting to hook you in. I was almost 99 farming…from playing way back when and doing old style farming, and then swapping to doing this + planting trees/cacti since those were best exp.

I wandered away from RS again though…because of their attitude towards stuff like this..
