Key things I would've liked to seen in the recent patch.

1. A farmhand responsible for refilling food of each pen.

2. An optional farmhand that removes the XP in exchange to give 100% more resources.

3. A "Messenger" that will come find / notify you when an animals have fully grown.

4, A high bean cost farmhand that increases the chance of more rare breeds and shiny animals.

5. Lastly, just a service. That there is an option for a farmhand to store a new born animal in the barn instead of selling it.

6. Farmhand to scoop poop out of the pens then (Added by Sheepstick)


Additional ideas included using the invention ability to make specific tools that can handle these tasks.



Overall I feel the we waited a long time just for some bank space and a pause button on growth.
Hmmm.. that you Zaros?

I'm not going to spend beans on any of the stuff from the update it's not worth it. I saw the collector and saw it collected animals if your pen was full but then read it only works for breeding pen and I'm like well that's a waste now.

We get a collector who can store up to 90 unchecked animals. We get a babysitter who can stop growth so we get more beans. We get a hunter to get animals instead of us having to hunt them. And a barn to store 15(30) animals.
Everything the OP mentions can be done in a matter of minutes by the player except for getting shinies, what's wrong with actually playing the game for a few minutes at a time?

I've been reading a lot of comments from people about new stuff on RS and it seems to me that so many players want everything given on a plate. I've been playing for a lot of years and it's much easier to gain XP and money today than it was before.

These updates improve the farm, make it so you don't have to visit every day to get the benefits, and even stop you having to kill animals to get some of the breeding pairs. How easy does it have to be to satisfy everyone?

I agree with this. Maybe use the silo to store and 'auto-mush' various food stuffs for the farmhand to then distribute to the appropriate pens when needed.

Can anyone tell me how i can see if an animal is in baby form through trades? I have traded a few and each time have been scammed because they tell me they are babys and turn out to be already grown.

1. I mean you only have to do it every 2 weeks. Plus wouldn't you still have to refill him? Meh.

2. Would definitely use!

3. the guys that prevent them going past adol. is enough for me. Would not need this.

4. Very good, I could see this being very popular for those people who try to get the best breeding.

5. Isn't that what the collector or whatever is for? Newborn animal overflow goes there as unchecked animals.

Hover your mouse over them in the trade window. Can see growth, name, traits, etc. Gotta do it relatively slowly though to make sure you don't miss any. These details are not visible in the second window.

Calm down. This is about PoF specifically not your "feelz" about the current state of the game. If they were going to make adjustments I'd like to be something that actually affects the way I play.

1. Good idea.

2. I feel that this would only be useful for Ironman/Ironwoman accounts, as all POF resources are worth very little already.

3. Unfeasible because animals only have their growth applied when a player visits the farm. If Jagex changes this to animal growth being applied outside the farm, then players would have to wear the Elite Farmer Outfit 24/7 to have +7% growth applied, which is impractical.

4. Definitely would like this. No one wants to check in to their POF and collect low level animals such as rabbits, chickens, sheep, etc, after 6 hours. Especially animals you can already buy in the shop itself for beans...

5. I was not aware that new animals born get sold automatically? Only excess animals born in the breeding pen get converted to unchecked variants and held there until you collect it. If you mean, to preserve the animal traits (as unchecked animals only come with 1 trait), then what happens if a player's barn is full?
Hard -> 3a Range Top (#357), 3a Full Helm (#439), Barrows Dye (#1755)
Elite -> Shadow Dye (#510), Barrows Dye (#680, #1567), 3a Druidic Staff (#969), Sack of Effigies (#972), Ice Dye (#1539)
Master -> Barrows Dye (#480)
