Claim your Farm in ArcheAge
A farm is one of the properties in ArcheAge. It is a plot of land where players grow plants and raise livestock. After placing a farm, you can begin a very simple construction phrase: for a small one, a few boards will be OK; for a large one, a simple pack of lumber will be fine.
Farming actually include four professions:
Husbandry—taking care of livestock
Farming—taking care of crops
Logging—getting lumber or wood to create farming items
Gathering—installation and removal of plants
Types of farms
Small— 8x8 Small Scarecrow Garden, obtained through Blue Salt Brotherhood questing.
Large—16x16 Scarecrow Garden, obtained through Blue Salt Brotherhood Questline.
Aquafarms—Bought from Mirage Isle for 14 Gilda Stars. Located on the Western Side near the docks. Takes a 16x16 area in Underwater Farm Zones and has a special ability to restore breath. Takes no materials to place.
Farm House—Bought from Mirage Isle for 50 Gilda Stars. Located on the Eastern Side near the Ranch. Has a larger area around it for farming over standard houses.
Public Farms—Most of the zones, or probably every non pvp zone has an Public farm, where free to play players can plant certain plants or grow livestock. You can plant only 10 plants or grow 10 animals, no matter if you're planting in different zones or farms. And whatever you've planted will be protected for one day or two. So do not grow anything inside the Public Farm that takes longer to grow than the Protection Time, for anyone can come and take them.
They are used to protect the farm by being planted in the desired spot. Each character can own two scarecrows but need a Patron Pass to buy in the AH with in-game currency.
Every Scarecrow, Aquafarm has taxes. Taxes are once a week and will vary depending on how many farms you have and also the size of the land. If you do not pay taxes, you have a two-week grace period to pay it. If you do not pay your Scarecrow will be destroyed.
Small scarecrow: 1 Gold per week
Large scarecrow: 3 Gold per week
Aquafarms: 3 Gold per week
If you don’t want to pay the tax, there is another way to do farming: in the wild—anywhere outside a protected area around homes. But since they are not protected, your crops and livestock are completely exposed. You’d better look for a secluded and hidden spot. But there is always a risk of somebody taking your things away when farming in the wild. Luckily they will leave footprints behind. Click on the footprints and you can report the person, which will be added to the criminal record and finally that person will go to the court and be sent to jail.
