I myself believe this could be feasible and I am one of lauraaa's friends that she had approached about this. Farming can be very expensive, especially for ironmen/women and this would be interesting to see. Yes I'm well aware that you can make some of these items, obtain them as drops from other bosses/monsters, skill for them, or buy/trade shops/other players for them. I'm simply stating that this could be another way to do it, especially for ironmen/women, who the game is already annoyingly difficult for. Please take all this into consideration. Thank you! :D Have a mystical day y'all

farming is already cheap.

overloads the price they are considering what they do. are cheap also, especially as whenever used they will bring you more profit than the cost of the overload.


ultra compost id say no. thats a specific item from pof.

most seeds from pvm are the worse drops bar mage from nex and araxi. to the extend iirc its been talked about to remove seeds from boss tables due to them always ending up being the worse drops possible

so creating a boss that only drops farm supplies. imo i dont see either being profitable. being op for ironmen. dead content fairly quickly.

They are already planning to reduce the numbers of seeds, and especially herbs, dropped by creatures (mostly bosses), due to the impact it has on Farming. I think that, once they've sorted that out, and it's had time to take effect, it might be worth doing such a boss, but not before, as far too many of such items come from PvM, flooding the market, and making it less viable to train Farming, directly.


PoF fails to be a sink, in any meaningful way. Even if you have every pen full, and only have seed-eating creatures in them, you can buy more seeds than they can eat, from NPC shops, even if you just buy the lower level seeds, that are very cheap.


(I like the idea, and it has potential to be useful for DIY/Iron accounts, that wish to boss, rather than shop, or slay, but in the current game-state, it's just going to compound issues that are already quite severe).

Look, I know Bandos got his ass kicked by a glorified pigeon, but he doesn't deserve this :( You're talking about General Graardor.

The boss is a bucket of flowers(bouquet, get it!? xdddd) Its bucket protects it from melee attacks and can only be attacked by magic / arrows. Once it loses half of its HP, the bucket cracks, as the flower outgrows the bucket. Its roots are exposed, and can only be struck by physical attacks. Arrows work, too.

New boss lore: An impatient farmer used too much of the good stuff to try to get his batch of flowers instantaneously, but they got something else instead...

Attacks:

Punish: Punishes melee players in first phase by picking them up and drain their ability bar by 25%
,
increasing its own special attack: Frenzy Plant. Once drained, the person gets dropped to the ground for x amount of damage.

Frenzy Plant: Roots violently burst out of the ground, and you're supposed to run in circles. If hit, you're bound to the spot and unable to move, while the' thorns around you cause bleed damage.
