Runes of Magic introduces Botany to the travelers of Taborea! This has been something that players have been asking for and the crew at RoM has responded kindly! Players can (in the VERY near future) grow plants that will yield rare runes and other materials that can be used in the crafting system. Look to TheRomWiki.com to have all the information in caring for these plants that you'll need as soon as the system hits the live server!
Craftsmen and artisans are always looking for the best materials, the rarest and most valuable ingredients.
They have to travel far, climb the steepest hills and are always in danger of getting run over by roaming monsters only to harvest a few bits and pieces.
A few Taborean botanists now made the break-through, cultivating uncommon and rare plants and harvest some of the most sought-after crafting materials.
Not wanting to keep their secret findings for too long, they will start teaching their knowledge in the coming weeks.
All an aspiring hobby-botanists needs, people say, is just a planting pot, some seeds (which can e.g. looted from slain monsters) and a green thumb. People feeding and watering their plants regularly will be rewarded by full, sun-kissed fruits or materials.
Extremly rare plants need extra care but can yield special runes, which adventurers can use to upgrade their character's equipment, right up to ores, wood and new plants. Given the right kind of seeds, the harvest can even be rare "blue" crafting material.
We will be giving you more on this new, up-coming feature of runes of magic gold in the coming weeks.
