Livid farm for most people is an extreme grind, but here's how to ease your pain.


We start off with the bad news


First off: We're gonna ignore fences, because they're not afk.

Quote

The produce points earned in a full cycle of 5 rounds is therefore:
Cure plant: 20 points x 3 casts per round x 5 rounds per cycle = 300 points
Bundle Livids: 120 points x 2 casts per round x 2 rounds per cycle = 480 points (240 points if less than 80 Magic)
Fertile Soil: 20 points x 3 casts per round x 5 rounds per cycle = 300 points (150 points if less than 83 Magic)
Fence repair: 20 points x 2 casts per round x 5 rounds per cycle = 200 points (100 points if less than 86 Magic)
Energise Pauline: 100 points x 1 cast per round x 3 rounds per cycle = 300 points (150 points if less than 91 Magic)

The maximum points per cycle a player can earn is, therefore, 1,580 points. At 12 5-minute cycles per hour, the maximum rate a player can earn points is 18,960 points per hour.

Without fences, it's 1380 points per 5 minutes, which results in 16560 points/hr.

For those who are going for completionists', this means it takes 51.3 hours for 850k points. This means an extra 7.1 hours.

HOWEVER

Considering that this is going to be much much more afk than normal Livid, you will realize that your tolerance level is much higher.





So now we get to the good part.

In this screenshot, you notice that I have both the farm and Pauline in clickable view. Standing in this square or any square near it will achieve this.

This means that you can "afk" livid by not needing to move your camera around. Notice that my screen is half of 1920x1080, which lets me go on any web browser on the other side of the screen.

Each cycle will take about 20 seconds or so to clear, giving you relatively a lot of time to do whatever you like. (In comparison to other afk skills like cook and fletch, this is roughly about the same afk leeway those skills give)

Every cycle, after you clear the farm, Pauline will sometimes NOT require energizing. This is your cue to go string the pile at the wagon.

After a while, you'll start to recognise the patterns and you'll know when the string pile is ready by looking at the farm patch pattern.

This screenshot (sent by Jay) is helpful for those who are new and have not really memorised the farming pattern.


So I bid you good luck on livid and don't lose hope.

Hmm, definitely something I will keep in mind if/when I ever decide to finish this!

Nice tip! I always thought you had to do all parts.

I'd rather move camera around a bit and save 7 hours to be fair :-/

edit several months later: I totally disagree with the opinion expressed in the line above! This tip is great :P

I unlocked 9 spells that way, it's worth the extra time.

Just finished all livid farm spells today. I only ever do fences if I have to bunch the flowers.
very easy playing in full screen and only using my mouse.

Discussed this method with some friends when I was going for competionist - calc'd it out and didn't wanna spend the extra time there ha. For me, after I learned each plant from the angle I was using, I was able to just watch a movie or whatever and barely look at 'Scape. If you do want to skip fencing, it gives you just enough time to fletch two sets of arrows/bolts.

Nice tip nonetheless.

I do it because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

Nice tip, you could also include this picture for people that want to memorize the types of livid strain in each spot.

Yup. Besides some XP/Hour when it comes to Farming, it looks like a solid tip. I have this right next to my RS client when I'm doing Livid Farm.

Also, how much Farming XP you get for unlocking all the spells would be helpful to for people that want to get into this compared to conventional Tree/Herb Farming.

I can't remember the exact numbers, but it should be around 900k-1.5m farming xp for full spell unlocks. If anyone can give me exact numbers, I'll add on to the main post.

I don't play the game anymore to put effort into calculating anything. Maybe someone can take my post and redo it as a new thread to keep up with the times as the game evolves.

Afk & livid farm are 2 phrases/words I love to see together.

Does this method change the cost at all? I wanna do livid farm but don't fully understand it.

I'm glad I saw this because I was thinking of doing Livid Farm soon to unlock all of the spells. Definitely worth the 7 hours extra time ;)
