First of all, please be aware that this activity consumes a large amount of runes. So be sure to have a wide number of the vital runes before starting. This includes: 2,000 Astral runes, 1,000-2,000 Nature runes, 500-1,000 Law runes, as well as 2,000-5,000 Earth runes and Water runes (alternatively a Mud battlestaff or Mystic mud staff will work).
With this in mind, you can now start by heading to Pauline Polaris. Speak with her to receive a quick tutorial to understand the basics of Livid Farm. You must complete this tutorial before you will be able to play this minigame.
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 have done; 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, regardless oh how much higher it is. However, if you cast spells without the required Magic level, you will be rewarded with only half the produce points, and it will still consume your runes.
The stages are as follows:
- Stage 1, 2, and 4
- Stage 3 and 5
Assuming every task is performed during each stage of a cycle, you will earn 1,580 Produce Points.
Below you will find a table that details the experience and produce gained for each task; from lowest to highest Magic level required for full points. While you do not need to have the Magic to cast the spells, if your level is not high enough you will not receive experience for it and your Produce points will be halved. If you wish to know what Produce points you will gain for casting any given spell, right-click Pauline and choose "Claim-rewards". Under the "Tasks" tabs, you will see what you will gain.
|Task||Magic Level||Runes Needed||Experience Gained||Produce Points||Other Notes|
|Cure plant||66||1 Astral and 8 Earth||90 Magic
|20||3 plants each stage.|
|String jewelry||80||1 Astral, 10 Earth, and 5 Water||124.5 Magic
|120 Per batch||You cannot hold more than 10 Livid plants or 2 Livid plant bunches at a time; both of these items stack. Experience is gained when bunches are placed in the cart, but runes are used when they are created.|
|Fertile soil||83||3 Astral, 15 Earth, and 2 Nature||130.5 Magic
|20||3 plots each stage.|
|Plank make||86||2 Astral, 15 Earth, and 1 Nature||135 Magic
|20||You cannot hold more than 50 Lunar lumber and 50 Lunar planks at a time; both of these items stack. Experience is gained when fences are repaired, but runes are used when planks are created.|
|Encourage Pauline||N/A||N/A||254.5 Agility||100||If you accidentally choose the wrong phrase, you can try again to encourage her.|
Fertilizing and curing are the first tasks you should focus on at the beginning of every stage. You will need Nature runes, Astral runes, and Earth/Water runes. Alternatively you can use a (Mystic)Mud battlestaff to save on Earth/Water runes.
First, fertilize the empty livid patches to give birth to new Livid blossoms. This is done by simply clicking empty patches along her farming plots.
Next is a more problematic duty! You will need to restore the health of the diseased livid, these are the livids that have turned black.
But as easy as this might sound, having the Cure Plant spell runes won't be enough; your ability to recognize shapes will be tested. There are four different shapes of livids growing in the farm. To successfully cast the Cure Plant spell, you will need to select the right shape from the menu.
Luckily, the location where each type of livid grows is fixed. This being the case, you will simply have to see which spot it is in and compare to the image below to be able to successfully cure the plant.
You will only need to perform one spell per plant, if required, per stage. Once you have made sure the Livid are growing deadly and healthy, you can move on!
If you are Magic level 66+, for each Livid that you cure you will gain: 20 Produce points, as well as 90 Magic and 137.5 Farming experience.
If you are Magic level 83+, for each plot you fertilize you will gain: 20 Produce points, as well as 130.5 Magic and 137.5 Farming experience.
Collect the desired amount of lumber from the log pile along the North edge of Pauline's farm. You can right-click and choose to take 1 or 5 logs at a time, or you can spam click the pile grabbing one each time. When you have your desired amount of lumber, up to 50, convert it into Lunar fenceposts by clicking the lumber. These fenceposts will then be used to repair 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:
Note: It may be helpful, before actively working on the farm, to create a large number of fenceposts so that you can quickly repair the broken areas and move on.
For this task, be sure to stock up with Astral runes, Earth runes, and Water runes; or Astral runes and a (Mystic)Mud battlestaff. When Pauline harvests the crops on the farm, she will place them in the produce pile. This can be found along the Northern wall of the farm, just next to the Lunar lumber bin:
Click the bin once and you will collect all 10 livid plants that you will now need to bunch together using the String Jewelry spell. Simply click twice on the Livid plants and they will become bunched. You do not need to wait for the spell animation to end before you can string the second batch of livid; you can quickly click twice to gain some time!
Once you have your livid bunched, head to the trade wagon full of bunched produce in the South East corner.
As we all do at some point in our lives, Pauline needs to be encouraged to keep going! And it seems that she needs that quite often in this activity.
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 by right-clicking on her and clicking "Encourage". Then choose the positive phrase of the 4 options given. The choices you want to make are listed below:
- 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.
- You're doing a fantastic job.
But it doesn't stop there! As part of any unusual place, peculiar events are bound to happen. Be sure to watch out for these Random Events to collect on the extra gains! For each one completed, you will gain 20 Produce points.
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 right-click and choose "Diagnose" on the ibis), then tell Meteora what's wrong with her pet.
It had to be a Suqah:
You will have to encourage her so she can teach the Suqah who's the boss! Simply right-click her and choose "Encourage".
A Pirate's Revenge:
Murky Pat, an unpopular pirate, comes to livid farm looking for something that can help him increase his public image - revenge! Speak with him to learn who has been causing him trouble. Then right-click him and choose "Apply-vengeance". This will open a window where you need to select the person who is giving Pat a hard time. Once you have made your selection, the spell will be cast.
As you progress on the livid farm, you will be awarded Produce points. These points can be used to unlock a whole new variety of interesting and useful Lunar spells.
