Gardening Basics

Growing and harvesting plants uses the Explorer’s gardening skill, which unlocks Talents that make farming more efficient. Each harvested plant earns points towards your next Talent Point (TP) in Gardening, so it can be beneficial for grow more food than you need. In the worst case, you can always sell excess product or eat at merchants for a few extra ancient coins.


To grow a plant, you will need three things; a hoe to till the land, a seed to plantand a watering can to feed the crops.

pressing the secondary action button with a hoe equipped style the target mosaic, making it capable of sustaining a crop. Cutting the same tile again reverts it to its original state.

When you have carved the tiles you plan to use for landscaping, equip the seeds you want to plant and press the secondary action button aiming at the farmed tiles. To speed things up, you can simply hold the button while moving. Your Explorer will only plant seeds on tilled tiles, so you won’t waste seeds if you target an untilled tile.

If you place the wrong type of seed on a tile or decide you don’t want to grow a seed, you can dig seeds planted again with a shovel or without tilling the soil with a hoe As long as the seed has not started to grow, it will pop out of the ground and can be returned to your inventory.

When your seeds are planted, equip your shower and press the secondary action button while aiming at each seeded tile to water them. The plants will not grow until they are watered, but each seed only needs to be watered once. If your shower runs out of water, you can refill it use it on any water mosaic. For this reason, it is best to grow near a source of water, no matter how small.

Once watered, the seeds will fully grow after ten minutes. After this time has passed, you can harvest the plant. Each plant you harvest has a seventy-five percent chance of also producing a fresh seed of the same type, which you can use to replant the crop.

Plants only grow in the correct soil type for its species. This is the same tile you find them growing on in the wild.
