    Hi, will there be a post on "Magical Seed"? Does breeding the seed create more magical seed(s)?

      @Ex__Animo

      Hi :) You get more magical seeds, mysterious seeds (updated in KR on Oct 12th), and "Fruit of X" by breeding magical seeds. Magical seeds produce 5x more crops than regular/special seeds produce, and use 5x larger space than regular/special seeds use. The chance of getting Magical Seeds from Special Seeds is p low, and you have to be Artisan 1 or over in Farming in order to harvest/breed Magical seeds.

      I'm glad it will be simple to have fences full of only magical seeds.

    "The amount of EXP that Level 56 to 60 characters get has increased dramatically."


    Does that mean that the new soft cap is level 60, instead of level 56?

      level 1 Yullie

      @Bl2EAKIN

      Actually the new soft cap is 61. You get more exp&level up faster until you reach 61. (i.e. you get more exp in levels 56, 57, 58, 59, and 60.) Leveling up becomes hard again once you reach level 61.


      Let me know if you have any further questions. Ty!

      @Zephan

      PA didn't give us the exact value so everyone is still testing on how faster they can level up. We'll let you know if we get any further details. Thank you!

    Do the new farming seeds have increased farming byproducts?

      Hi :) Ty for the warm compliment and sorry for getting to you late.


      It's hard to give you the mats&where to get them via a comment, as it's going to be super long and hard to read if I list all the info here :( I'll give you the info via a separate post, which should be out in a few days. Thanks!

      Usually it takes a week or two for this kind of change to be implemented on the NA/EU server :)
