Table of Contents:

Getting Started:

First of all please be aware that this activity consumes a great deal of runes, so be sure to have a wide number of the vital runes before starting (i.e. 2k Astral runes, 1-2k Nature runes, 500-1k Law runes, and 2k-5k Earth runes plus Water runes or a Mud staff), and be sure you will be able to withstand the expenses.

Having this in mind, you can now start by heading to Pauline Polaris and talk to her to receive a quick tutorial to understand the basics of the minigame that will be explained in this guide later as well.

Tutorial

This done, you're ready to venture into the world of Livid farming!

Playing the Game:

Livid Farm works uses a system of 5 repeating timed stages. This means that once a stage starts you will have a certain amount of time to complete all the tasks available in the area before it resets again. Not to worry, you will not get penalized if you don't complete them all. You will be rewarded with Produce points and experience points only for what you do; no more, no less. Also, even if you do not have the required Magic level, you will be able to cast all the spells needed to complete a certain task in the farm, no matter how high the level requirement is. However, if you cast spells without having the required Magic level, you will be rewarded with only half the produce points that you would normally get, and it will still consume your runes.

The stages are as follows:

  • Stage 1, 2 and 4 - 3x Fertilise soil, 3x Cure livid, 2x Repair Fence, and 1x Encourage Pauline.
  • Stage 3 and 5 - 3x Fertilise soil, 3x Cure livid, 2x Bundle livid, and 2x Repair fence.

Assuming every task is performed during each stage of a cycle, you will earn 1,580 Produce Points.

Farming the Livid

Time for some charmin' farming, with a chance your fingers might find themselves being the lunch of the Livid. This is the first task you should focus on at the start of every stage. For this task you will need Nature runes, Astral runes, and Earth/Water runes, so be sure to have enough!

First, fertilize the empty livid patches to give birth to a new Livid blossom:

Fertilising Patches

And secondly, a more problematic duty! You will need to restore the health of the diseased livid, which are all those livids that have turned black.

But as easy as this might sound, having the Cure Plant spell runes won't be enough, as your abilities to recognize shapes will be tested. You will find four different types of shaped livids growing in the farm. To successfully cast the Cure Plant spell, you will need to select the right shape from the menu that will open as you attempt to cure the livid:

Types of Livid to Cure

Below is the position of each type of Livid in the farm.

Guide to Curing Livid

You will only need to perform one spell per patch, if the patch requires it, per stage. Once you have made sure the Livid are growing deathly and healthy, you can move on!

Each Livid that you cure will get you 20 Produce points, and you will be also awarded with 20 Produce points for each empty patch that you fertilize (10 if your Magic level is 82 or lower).

Repairing the Fence

It seems that just as the natives of the Tai Bwo Wannai village, Pauline seems to need some help with getting her fence repaired! But unlike at Tai Bwo Wannai, the problem here is much less complicated.
For this task, be sure to be stocked with Nature runes, Astral runes, and lots (if not infinite) of Earth runes!

Log Pile

Now cast the Plank Make spell on the lumber to create the material which you will need in order to restore Pauline's fence. During each stage, the fence will get broken at two specific spots. The combinations along with the spots are shown in the map below:

Fence Locations
You will be rewarded with 20 Produce points (10 if your Magic level is 87 or lower) for each broken section of the Pauline's fence that you repair. In addition, repairing the fences will grant you Magic and Construction XP.

Back to the top

Packing the Livid

Be sure to be stocked up with Astral, Earth, and Water runes for this task! When Pauline harvests the crops in the farm, she will place them all in the produce pile found just next to the lunar lumber bin:

Taking Produce

It will contain 10 pieces of livid that you will need to bunch together using the String Jewellery spell.
And a quick tip: You do not need to wait for the spell animation to end to string the second batch of livid; you can quickly click two times on the String Jewellery spell icon to gain some time!

Once you have your strung livid, head to the trade wagon full of strung produce and deposit them in there to gain some Magic and Crafting XP. Helping Pauline with packing up the Livid awards you with 120 Produce points (60 if your Magic level is 79 or lower).

Note: You can only have two strung batches of Livid in your inventory at the same time.

Back to the top

Encouraging Pauline:

As we all do at some point in our lives, we need to be encouraged to keep going! And it seems that Pauline needs that quite often in this activity.

Encourage Pauline

If it is not time to harvest the Livid, you will notice that Pauline gets drained. You will need to encourage her with the right phrase. You can do this right-clicking on her and clicking Encourage, then choose one of the following options:

  • Come on, you're doing so well.
  • Keep going! We can do this.
  • Look at all the produce being made.
  • Lokar will really appreciate this.
  • Extraordinary!
  • You're doing a fantastic job.

Helping Pauline recover her energy and motivation will get you 100 Produce points each time you do so (50 points if your Magic level is 90 or lower).

Random Events
But it dosen't stop there! As part of any unusual place, peculiar events are bound to happen in there. Be sure to watch out for them to get some Magic XP and free runes!

Sick Ibis
Meteora's ibis doesn't seem to be doing well. She wants to know what's wrong with it and wants you to do something about it. Help Meteora unveil the enigma by casting Monster Examine on her ibis (or click "Diagnose" on the ibis) then tell Meteora what's wrong with her pet.

Sick Ibis

You will be awarded with 1 Astral rune, 10 Water runes, 16 Earth runes, 1 Cosmic rune, and 1 Mind rune each time you help Meteora and her ibis.

It had to be a Suqah...
It seems that the Moonclan members and the Suqah are still just as friendly as ever! Sometimes a Suqah will decide to sneak into the farm and start attacking Pauline, and she will need some help!

You will need to encourage her so she can teach the Suqah who's the boss!

You will be awarded with 3 Astral runes, 2 Law runes, and 1 Nature rune each time you boost Pauline's energy so she can keep fighting back.

A Pirate's Revenge
Murky Pat, an unpopular pirate, comes to livid farm looking for something that can help him increase his public image; like, revenge!

Pirate

Cast the Vengeance other spell on the person who is giving Murky a hard time to help him obtain his desired revenge. Be sure to select the appropriate dialogue line from those that will appear in your chatbox as you attempt to cast the spell.

You will be awarded with 3 Astral runes, 15 Water runes, 20 Earth runes, and 2 Death runes each time you help Murky Pat obtain his revenge.
