I started gardening on a Legendary character, she is now rank 7 (almost 8), I was enjoying gardening very much and my friends were too. Since last nights update, all of our plants are needing so much care that we cant keep our gardens alive now. I have 13 plants and I am having to just watch them die cause every 4 hours they need attention again and I am now out of energy. Was this the intent of the update last night or is this a bug?
To the OP. I can agree with you. It is crazy now. I have taken care of my plants diligently. Such as getting rid of pests with a spell that cost ten plus energy and coming back an hour later and finding the same plant has the same type of pest. Let alone the watering or polination required for the rest of my plants or the one that has pests. I take care of my garden 3-4 times a day. Its frustraiting. I am about to quit gardening, which I really like doing, because of all of the issues with it.
I would have to agree that the time and effort put into gardening is, at best, barely worth it now that they take so much care and energy. Thankfully however, I'm just into rank 9 gardening with (hopefully) enough deadly fly traps (300 exp each harvest) that I'll make rank 10 without having to plant more. I guess my only suggestion would have to be to stick with it if it's something you truely enjoy doing. And! Once you reach rank 10, plant what you want, not what gets you the most for the least. (Is planting a nice little deadly ninja fig farm once he's rank 10)
