FULLY UPDATED to Patch 1.2!

vocation_iconTrade runs are essential to earning Gilda Stars to buy houses with, and farming and donkeys are essential to trade runs. This guide shows how to get both on the eastern continent. Only those with patron status may place farms!

IMPORTANT: You must be at least LEVEL 10 to start quest chain. Turning in tradepacks costs 60 LABOR.

Start in Anvilton.

This is where the line to get your small scarecrow and donkey begins.

Scarecrow and Donkey Quest Start

Youre looking for the Blue Salt Brotherhood Merchant Recruiter. Hell give you a bunch of short quests before you get to the one you want.

Blue Salt Brotherhood Recruiter
                  1. A Farming Necessity: get 5 water from well to the right of the guy
                  2. Caring for Corn: use the water on the Waxy Corn Seedlings beside the guy
                  3. Planting Potatoes: buy a potato eye from Seed Merchant Nuhan to the right, plant it in public farm
                  4. Meeting the Daru: deliver package to the blue guy standing beside the Mirage Portal just to the southwest
                  5. Strange Traders: go back to Merchant Recruiter (Gilda Star reward, yay!)
                  6. A Garden of Your Own: talk to the Merchant Recruiter twice to get your first scarecrow blueprint + mats to make it + tax certificates

 OK. So now you have the stuff to build your first scarecrow!

Next the Merchant Recruiter sends you south of Anvilton to Josiah (Placing Your Garden quest), with the suggestion to plant your farm there. YOU DONT HAVE TO PLACE IT THERE FOR QUEST CREDIT. Talk to Josiah and return to the Merchant Recruiter.

Trade Run: Arcum Iris to Falcorth

The next quest you get (from the same NPC) is Master of Trade. Follow the quest to Trading Guide Sahel nearby, and hell give you your first trade run quest: Trade Run: Arcum Iris to Falcorth.

Map Arcum Iris

Exit the map south to Arcum Iris, heading to the quest marker. There is a farming area surrounding the specialty workbench there.

1. Make Arcum Iris Lavaspice.

      • Buy and plant 13-18 azalea seeds (Seed Merchant sells). Youll get 3-4 azalea per harvest on average.
      • Buy and plant 15-21 turmeric seeds. Be aware that these tend to like arid climates, so you may get less per harvest if you plant elsewhere.
      • Water them by hitting F with water in your inventory. This will reduce their growing time. Water is free from wells.
      • Harvest. Be sure youve waited until theyre mature and no longer say small. You should have a green sprout icon for your F key  instead of a shovel icon.
      • Buy 5 Blue Salt Knives (General Merchant sells) and right-click the stack of azaleas in your inventory until you have 50 dried flowers.

2. Get a head start on the next quest.

Before you craft your pack, though, go ahead and get started on the materials youll need for the next quest, which will require 50 medicinal powder and 30 goose down.

MAKE SURE YOU KEEP AT LEAST 50 SILVER IN RESERVE TO CRAFT YOUR LAVASPICE PACK.
  • Buy and plant 6-7 barley seeds. (Seed Merchant sells)
  • Buy and plant 10-15 mushroom seeds. (Seed Merchant sells)
  • Water them by hitting F with water in your inventory. This will reduce their growing time. Water is free from wells.
  • Buy and plant 5 goslings. (Livestock Merchant sells)

3. Craft your pack.

Now youre ready to make your pack. Youll need to purchase a Quality Certificate from a General Merchant, just a stones throw from the machine you make your pack at.

And this is what the specialty workbench itself looks like:

Specialty Workbench

Youll end up with a backpack full of lavaspice. Be careful, if you set it down somewhere other than on your farm, anyone can pick it up. Since you walk reeeeeeeally slowly with it on, its still probably faster to dip south and take the carriage.

If you think you may miss the carriage, you can also just walk north to Tigerspine Mountains, using your mana-draining sprint as often as possible.

Arcum Iris Carriage

After that, catch your next carriage on to Falcorth. Be sure youre at the right one! There are three in the area, and youre looking for the one named Hela. That ride will drop you off a little southwest of your destination.

Tigerspine Mountains Carriage

When you reach the Gold Trader, just talk to him rather than set your pack down.

Your quest will then send you back to Trading Guide Sahel at Anvilton in Tigerspine Mountains. Hell offer a quest called Trade Run: Falcorth to Widesleeves, with your donkey as the reward.

Trade Run: Falcorth to Widesleeves

This step may need to be completed later if your geese arent yet mature.

1. Gather your Snowlion Yarn components.

  • Harvest your barley and mushrooms as they mature.
  • Buy 2 Blue Salt Knives and right-click the barley in your inventory twice to get Dried Grain.
  • Harvest Goose Down
  • When your geese have matured, use the hay bale icon to feed them the Ground Grain.
  • Shear themby clicking the scissors icon. You need 30 goose down total!
  • Buy 4 Blue Salt Knives (General Merchant sells) and right-click on the mushrooms in your inventory 4 times to get 50 medicinal powder.
  • Once the geese are out of recovery mode (no longer have yellow + signs floating around them), feed and shear them again if you dont have 30 down yet.

2. Get a headstart on the next quest.

ONCE AGAIN, YOULL NEED 50 SILVER IN RESERVE TO CRAFT YOUR YARN TRADEPACK.

3. Make Falcorth Snowlion Yarn.

Once you have all the goose down and medicinal powder you need, follow the quest marker to Falcorth Plains, because this particular pack can only be created there.

  • Buy a Quality Certificate from a nearby crafting merchant.
  • Craft your pack at the Specialty Workbench. 
  • Head back to the nearest carriage. 

Falcorth Plains Carriage
Then find the carriage driver named Beru and take his ride south to Widesleeves in Arcum Iris.
Tigerspine Mountains Carriage
When you arrive in Widesleeves, to turn your pack in. The quest will then send you to Trading Guide Sahel, back in Anvilton in Tigerspine Mountains. Talk to him to choose your donkey. donkeyreward

Let me ride that donkey.

Almost there. You cant ride your donkey as-is, but raising it is quick and easy.donkey

      • Head to the Anvilton Stables.
      • Buy a Vita Seed from the stablehand.
      • Plant and water the seed.
      • Harvest the Vita Root when it matures.
      • Plant your donkey in the stable area, and keep interacting with it as prompted until its mature.
Now youre all set to do trade runs and earn Gilda Stars.
