    Default Roots Farming is due for an update, or not?

It's up to you guys to find the long-term gains, because you have to amortize not only upfront costs but also time investments over weeks and months.

    Roots are not here to make you a quick buck. They are here to provide a patient and more farsighted alternative to the current farming loop. We will, of course, be keeping an eye on things and provide buffs if needed, but only after enough time has passed to get an idea of how the long-term investors in this new system are doing.
    I don't see roots being farmed that much and they previously surely couldn't surpass regular farming methods. Was there an update or are they long due for an update/buff?

    Update

    It turns out that there was an update I wasn't aware of (a buff to root farming). They are now viable. Thanks Spyroboy.

    they got buffed a while ago and apparently people farm them now? i think root cuttings are the only major issue. theyre useless and theres too much of them.

    there might of been one, it came out the end of novemeber along side a bountiful seed pack in the store (1,000 gems) you might have to search in the forums to see what the buffs were.


    Im not 100% certain if people do roots now, its just ive seen alot of threads arise about how alot of people do roots now, so maybe they are good?

    Btw can some body show or tell me what was the lastest buff. Besides the lastest buff I know which is the gem distribution. Btw thanks for the 400 seeds I didnt even sold it and max out grind for it. Im already at 1.2k But do you want your 400 back? The only roots are useful are tier 4 bountiful 1. Bamboo Spike 2. Jungle Temple Pillar

    No problem, you can keep them Other than the gem buff, If I recall correctly, they also buffed the xp you obtained from harvesting root cuttings.

    Agreed bro. The most valuable thing from Root Cuttings is now a few wls. We need that update urgently
