Completed Tips and Guide for Gardening Life Skill

Guide for Gardening Life Skill

Gardening is one of the life’s features in Ragnarok X Next Generation (RoX) in which you can use to gather plants for cooking, crafting and NPC favor. The plant you harvest from gardening is also one of the keys to making a fortune in the game by exchanging it with crystals at the exchange center. But did you know that this is the most meticulous task you will be ever done in the game? because gardening is not that simple, it has a schedule to follow for you to gather a fully grown plant, plus doing this task can only be done manually.

Garden Grow Schedule

First of all, we have to understand how the time works in Ragnarok X Next Generation, a 1 full-day cycle in the game is equivalent to 4 hours in real life. The 1 full day is divided in four different times of the day which is the morningdayevening and night.

The time of the day also has a specific length, morning and evening will last for 40 minutes (real-life), while the day and night will last for 1 hour and 20 minutes (real-life). For reference, below you can find the whole schedule cycle.

For plants that gain 20 Gardening EXP while gathering, those plants will only grow during the Morning and Evening. Usually, these plants are used for crafting materials and enchantments.

While for those plants that you can earn 1 to 10 Gardening EXP, those will grow during Day and Night. These plants are usually used as an ingredient or bait.

Drizzle (Raining Weather)

In that schedule, you might also notice the “Drizzle“, raining weather where plants can grow rapidly. This drizzle will only last for 20 minutes and it will only occur once to twice for a 1-full day cycle.

What special with the Drizzle weather is that you can harvest a plant unlimitedly as long as it the plant is scheduled to grow. We will discuss more of this in the later part.

How to Gardening

Since we already have a basic idea with the schedule, time of the day and grow time, we can now proceed with the actual gardening.

During the initial quest in the game, you probably already has the idea of gardening. Locating the plant, click the Garden button, then that’s it. It will gather the plants you harvested. But always remember that each of the plants has a specific time of day for it to grow. If you tried to harvest them on not their schedule, a pop-up message will appear saying “This plant will not grow in the current period”.

You can easily check plant’s growth time at the right corner of your game screen, click the Arrow Toggle button, then Life > Gardening. You may also check our list of gardening materials below.

At the Gardening, select the plant that you want to harvest and the Growth time will be displayed and there is a useful indicator that says “Can Gather” or “Gather in ??:??”. You can also find here the exact location where you can gather those plants.

Normal Growth

When you harvest, you will be moved to the Channel 1 of that map together with other players. Since everyone is in one channel, players has to compete to harvest on the limited spots. Each of this spots has limited number of plants allocated, when it runs out, it will grow and matured for 22 seconds making it harder to harvest during the normal growth.

The common problem with the normal growth is that most of the plants can easily be depleted as many players will gather those plants. A single spot can only give one plant per player and if you’re not lucky you’ll end up getting an message saying “All has been gathered”.

Drizzled Growth (Unlimited Harvest)

When you are gardening during the Drizzle raining weather, you no longer have to compete with other players as harvesting the plant is unlimited you don’t have to steal other players spot for harvesting. You can get as many as you want, but this will only lasts for just 20 minutes.

Take note that, drizzled will only appear in a map for 1 to 2 times in 1-full day or 4 hours in real life.

Indoor Growth

There are some plants specially on level 4 that will be grown only indoor like inside the caves and dungeon. Since it is indoor, there is no Drizzle weather on these area which makes these plant stuck as Normal growth where you will be competing with other players to harvest these plant materials.
