    A ~4,88x downgrade. Balanced?... I think not.

    Did anyone explored something useful? Is it better than farming right now?

    It's better than traditional farming if root cuttings have more purpose.

    Its balanced here what I understand. People don't usually farm bountiful items from another person, since its does not drop gems and not enough xp. But good news we get a little bit more gems if we/ourself farm those blocks. And harvest the mature roots ourselves

    If this keeps on going surely the tier 1 and 2 roots might go so cheap because of overstock of those roots. Plus the longer time for a bountiful. The more gems you are gonna harvest if the roots are mature

    Farming a farmeable with a great rarity is much more better in a way of XP and the gems you get from only breaking blocks. In total, you'll get around 70k-90k gems in a cycle of farming a full laser grid farm which'll get you earn more gems then a cycle of a root.

    Well if you want truly compare this correctly.
    Farmables "not Roots"
    - You need same rarity farmable trees as roots are.
    - You need to count exact gem amount for harvesting and breaking.

    Roots rarity same as farmable.
    - 5 times to harvest and 5 times to break to plant them again.
    - to collect gem amount what you get.

    Main rules to do comparison.
    Tree amount has to be exact same on both.
    Then u can do equal comparing.
    Farmable gems income need to be counted in total for 5 times.
    Root gems you will get only once for 5 times.

    You will have result for which one gives more gems.
    Then you will have result how much extra seeds and roots what you get by farming roots.
    Last you compare income what you get from selling seeds / roots what you have gained.
    Keep exact same amount than you had with start.

    Upon breaking the blocks, you get more seeds. (= more roots)

    Upon harvesting the roots, you get root cuttings

    Aren't you need to plant it 5x on the same spot for the root to be matured enough to get gems?
    WHAT IS UP!

    yes, but if u pick the bountiful item that gives u lots of gems, it's just equal to the gems you get in traditional farming with the same span of time (small difference actaully)

    Root cuttings will forever be useless in the short term, adding new items will temporary raise prices but this results in more farming = more roots = lower price again
