    Default Standard Farming vs. Roots Farming

    With the introductory of roots, thy serve a purpose to be a contender to farming. This thread will show a short comparison of the two.

    High Tech Block (rarity 69) and Growtopia-Eating Looming Plant (rarity 68) are close in rarity, both farmable.

    High Tech Block drops a range of 0-18 gems per tree harvest and block broken.
    Looming Plant drops 0 gems per tree harvest and block broken, however, it drops a range of 24-40 gems on Root Level 5 harvest.

    So for High Tech Block to be on par, you would have to farm High Tech Block 5 times - this would give a range of 0-36 gems multiplied by 5 which equals a range of 0-180 gems.
    > 0-36 as you harvest trees and break blocks.

    A range of 0-180 gems per block compared to 24-40 gems per block after 5 harvests seems off-putting.

    Roots do not seem to be a contender to farming as realistically it IS farming and is a variant of such. With the necessary set up and yield only after 5 complete harvests, j believe the gem and XP yield should be greater than that of standard farming, especially as it is considered long term farming.

    This was a quick comparison, most presumably errors will be apparent and of course these values are assumptions and are not on large scale.

    All of the items that actually come from the roots have a high value for now, and the headband will stay at about 5 world locks, but the hood will fall to 2 per 1 WL easily.

    Farming the roots will be the biggest thing for the next 2 weeks maybe, and then it will just drop like magic bells.

    There is very little use of the roots since they will become common (as it’s meant to be farmed in large quantities) and none of the recipe requires large amounts of roots so thus they will end up being like science clothing. Nothing desirable with roots that are challenging to get or difficult to obtain.

    The feature seems promising, it just needs tweaking. However, the usefulness of root cuttings is poor. They require recipes that uses them in bulks and such so that they are not simply worthless. The actual farming aspect to this and gem source needs to be tweaked and/or buffed.

    The blocks that we got out of this update is amazing though - I love each and every one of them.

    I absolutely don't understand how they manage to call this balanced and insist on the term. Let's do some statistics/balancing/designing

    1,000 Fish Tanks trees broken & 3,750 blocks earned from trees & broken
    Code:
    11 = max gem drop from ftank
    5.5 = 11 / 2 = avg gem drop
    
    ~4,000 gems (from trees) 
    ~20,625 (3,750 * 5.5) (from blocks)
    at least 24,625 gems (left over blocks not broken! could be even more gems...)
    Growth of fish tanks is roughly 10.86% per cycle

    Code:
    5 cycles
    -24,625
    -49,250 (+26,742)
    -78,291 (+29,041)
    -109,829 (+31,538)
    -144,079 (+34,250)
    So AT LEAST 144k gems earned by farming fish tanks manually.

    For roots, blocks/trees do not drop any gems at all. we'll take the closest item that matches the rarity of fish tanks. Conveniently, corpse flowers are rarity 42. They drop minimum 24 to 35 gems when their roots are ready.

    We start with a base 1k trees. Anything bonus could be considered, but will be offset to the rest of the farm due to root cycles. Due to this we will not consider the bonus blocks in this scenario.

    So we can sum it as:

    Code:
    35 - 24 = 11 (difference between min max)
    11 / 2 = 5.5 (half)
    24 + 5.5 or 35 - 5.5 = 29.5 (average of gems per root harvested)
    1,000 * 29.5 = 29,500
    A ~4,88x downgrade. Balanced?... I think not.

    Well... if you believe all roots don’t give gems .... you still have things to explore in roots to evaluate the balance and returns.

    That's not opinion. That is comparison between Root items and HTB. He said HTB give more gems if compared with root items.
    WRYYYYYYYYYYY....
