Green Thumb (Wheat/Carrots/Potatoes/Nether Wart)Edit
When harvesting a fully-grown plant, there is a chance for the player to instantly re-plant.The growth stage of the plant is based on Herbalism level. Replanting will use one of either wheat seeds, carrots, or potatoes depending on what was harvested.
Herbalism Level Wheat Stage Chance 0 - 199 0 (Lvl 0) 0%-13.2% 200 - 399 I 13.2%-26.6% 400 - 599 II 26.6%-40% 600 - 799 III 40%-53.2% 800-1500 IV 53.2%-100%(Lvl 1500)
Shroom Thumb Edit
Using a mushroom on a block of dirt will attempt to use Shroom Thumb. If successful, it will turn the block of dirt into a block of mycelium, consuming both a red and a brown mushroom to do so.
To do this, you need both a red, and brown mushroom in your inventory, and a sufficiently high Herbalism level. The chances of your success increases with your level, but both mushrooms will be consumed whether you succeed or not.
Farmer's Diet Edit
- Your past experience with growth hormones has taught you how to get the most out of your food. This passive skill increases the amount of hunger herbalism foods restore as your Herbalism level increases.
|0 - 199||0||0|
200 - 399
|400 - 599||II||2|
|600 - 799||III||3|
|800 - 999||IV||4|
Note: Farmer's Diet is similar to the healing effect herbalism gave pre- 1.8.
Hylian Luck gives you a small chance to get special items when certain Blocks are broken with a Sword. Currently, the blocks that are affected by this are:
- Dead Bushes
Grass/Saplings/Dead Bushes will drop Melon Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, or Cocoa. Flowers will drop Potatoes, Carrots, or Apples.
You have a 1% chance at Level 100 for this drop to occur when a corresponding Block is broken, The chance goes up by 1% every 100 Levels, so at Level 1000 you'd have a 10% chance for a drop to occur.
It is unknown what the amount of Drops are. More info will be added soon.
Double Drops (All Corresponding Blocks)Edit
Simple as it looks. A chance to get Double Drops from every farming object. The chance to get Double Drops is increased 0.1% each Level. If you are Level 1000 your chance will be 100%.
This chart details the amount of experience gained from harvesting the respective crops.
EXP Gained (per unit)
- The fastest way to train herbalism with no resources is to make an extremely large sugar cane farm. Keep in mind that hitting the second high sugarcane block on a 3 block high sugarcane will give 60 exp, provided that the sugarcane is 3 blocks high. Hitting the first sugarcane would give 90 exp, likewise, but only if that sugar cane is "natural", meaning no player has placed it.
- Have a dispenser on redstone clock put bonemeal on the ground every 2 or 3 ticks. The flowers give 40 exp and the grass gives 10. It doesn't give as much exp as the sugar cane but you don't have to wait for the flowers to grow, thus, you can do it for longer periods of time.
- A fast and AFK:able way is to stand in water while placing and breaking lily pads by holding left and right mouse button simultaneously. No longer works, no experience is received thanks to update, Still works on some servers
- Find a mooshroom/mycelium island and punch all the mushrooms, This is effective because a mushroom is worth 150xp.
- When harvesting sugarcane you get 30 XP per section. Breaking the top then the middle then the bottom yields 60 XP total, assuming that the bottom is player placed. Naturally spawning cane will yield XP for all sections. Breaking the middle section which automatically breaks the top section still grants 60 XP. (as of 1.2.5-1.4.6)
- Neither water nor light are needed to grow Nether Wart.
- Neither water nor light are needed for Cacti to grow.
- Large sugar cane farms are a good way to quickly gain XP as reeds do not need to be replanted after harvesting.
- Flowers are also good for leveling Herbalism. Using bonemeal on grass will potentially provide flowers, giving approximately 4 flowers each, totalling to 400 XP per bonemeal. Sometime it will only have 1-3 flowers. 5 and 6 flowers per bonemeal is a rare number.
- Get to the top of the nether if possible. Mine off all the mushrooms you see and have a speed potion and it should level you up pretty hyper quick.
- Hylian luck is a reference to the Zelda game series
