Should I try Gardening?

Aug 03, 2010
I've tried gardening when it first came out but have abandoned it since I didn't understand it fully. Should I try gardening again? Is it worth the time?

It depends on You.

If you're looking for some items that can be harvested on plants or gaining some gardening xp, I think you should do it. But if You think the gardening is just waste of time, then don't do it.

Hope to see you in spiral!

Very much so. At first, the rewards aren't too impressive, but there are a few plants out there that guarantee wonderful snacks (insert the 6,845,932,398th mention of Couch Potatoes and EMPs here), plants such as Sword Ferns and Silver Trumpet Vines for Treasure Cards, and so on.

If you're going to do PVP, pet training or crafting, then you definitely should do gardening. It's an excellent source of gold, treasure cards, pet snacks and reagents.

Absolutely. Gardening is by far the best resource in the game. As mentioned above, you'll get loads of pet snacks, treasure cards, and gold. I rarely ever, if ever at all, have to farm on any of my characters with fully stacked gardens because they keep me at max gold. I also want to mention King Parsley for getting amber. I got over 100 amber from King Parsley mature and elder harvests in about 2 months.

I think Freshta puts it best: Garden if you have specific needs. Gather the plants that will drop what you want and the spells for them and then garden those for all their worth.

Of course you should garden! It's one of the best ways to get mega snacks. You can also get gold, reagents, and treasure cards for more gold or crafting.

i like gardening for the pet snacks and rare regents. Just start with a few plants at first to get an idea if you like it. It never hurts to try to garden again.
