Players can now dig up healthy herb patches before they’re fully grown. To prevent players from gaining experience repeatedly by planting and digging up herb seeds, they experience usually gained from planting them are now given when harvesting them, alongside the usual harvesting experience.
Herb running ranarr seeds is profitable if disease chance is minimised and yield is maximised. Use ultracompost, or the enhanced Fertile Soil spell, to reduce disease and increase the average yield. Plant anima seeds, iasor to reduce disease chance, attas to increase yield. Equip magic secateurs and the Farming cape when harvest to increase yield.
It is also recommended to utilise disease free patches on top of Troll Stronghold after completing My Arm’s Big Adventure, the Hosidius patch after having at least 50% Hosidius favour, and the herb patch in Weiss, which is usable after building the Fire of Nourishment fire pit.
Item sources [ edit | edit source ]
Ranarr seeds are planted in herb patches, requiring 32 Farming, to grow grimy ranarr weeds. They can be obtained from monsters, pickpocketing Master Farmers, high level gambles from the Barbarian Assault minigame, larran’s big chest, or from Managing Miscellania if residents are assigned to Farming.
Note: Group of Advanced Gardeners at Farming patches do not protect herb patches.
The appearance of herbs planted in herb patches now match the herb’s appearance in the player’s inventory.
The value was changed from 19 to 50 so that it would appear above less valuable seeds when on the ground.
1. Use the ectophial and walk west of the ectofuntus to the Canifis region allotment (Don‘t forget to re-fill your ectophial!) Empty pineapples into the compost bin. Withdraw 1 supercompost from the tool leprechaun. Harvest all ranarr weeds that you may already have grown in the herb patch. Use the supercompost with the patch, and then plant the ranarr seed.
This guide is designed to make players around an extra 100k every 70 minutes or so. The method I am about to share takes about 5 minutes to complete, and can be repeated every 70 minutes. The great part about this money making method is that you do not need to be logged on for long periods of time for it to work! Ranarr weeds grow even when you are logged off. This method requires a basic knowledge of farming in order for you to fully grasp it.
Ectophial (Ghost’s Ahoy completed)
Several Glory amulets
Magic Secateurs (A Fairy Tale Part I completed)
Assorted teleport runes
1 Supercompost for every 1 ranarr seed
Amulet of Nature (“Pre-nature amulets” can usually be purchased for 50k on the official Runescape forums. All that is then required is to cast the emerald enchantment spell.)
Basic Farming Tools
Each ranarr seed produces at least 5 ranarr weeds, I‘ve seen up to 15. My seeds grow an average of 7 ranarr weeds each.
*There is an additional herb patch that can be used after completing the “My Arm’s Big Adventure” quest. I have not included this in the guide.
*You will have to replace pineapples with empty buckets every other trip. These will be to collect the finished supercompost in.
*Ranarr seeds take an average of 70 minutes to grow. You do not need to be logged on while they grow. After 70 minutes, repeat the trip to all of the allotments.
*Ranarr plants do occasionally die, but don’t worry, the money made from the other plants will more than make up for the loss.
4 seeds (per 70 minutes) x 30k = 120k spent
7 ranarrs per seed x 4 allotments = 28 ranarrs farmed on average every 70 mins
28 ranarrs x 7.5k each (on forums, world 2) = 210k
