Gardening in Eorzea. It's a beautiful thing. Does anyone else appreciate how deep this system is? Kind of amazing to me what all goes into it.
For example, my ultimate goal with it is getting Jute and Glazenuts. I've been working on the Glazenut side for a while now. To get it, I need Kukuru Bean seeds and Apricot Kernels, both of which need to be interbred to obtain. It took me 2 full growing cycles at constant fertilizing (which is about 8 days) to get 4 apricot kernels, and I just today started on attempting to breed Kukuru seeds.
As a preparation for it all I had to get my miner geared enough to harvest the grade 3 Thanalan topsoil, which only spawns at an unspoiled node, and you can only get 1 each time. So that's 1 topsoil every 72 minutes at the most, per person. Then I had to gather Honey Lemon Seeds, Dzemael Tomato Seeds, and Prickly Pineapple Seeds, all of which are on unspoiled nodes and one each time as well. Those 3 together started the Apricot production.
...and I didn't even start on the Jute side yet at all, which will require the same sort of effort.
With all of that... no wonder the top tier grown materials sell for over a million on the market boards.
So how y'all doing with it?
