1.0 - Introduction

The following skills are required in order to begin this activity: 70 Magic, 60 Agility, 60 Crafting, 60 Farming, and 50 Construction. The Lunar Diplomacy quest must also be completed. The Livid Farm is found within a Members' only area, and is safe in the sense that nothing can harm you.

The Livid Farm is located on the northern part of the Lunar Isle. The easiest and fastest way to reach the Livid Farm would be to use the Lunar Home Teleport or the Moonclan Teleport. Alternativley, you can use the boat from Rellekka to get to the Pirate's Cove then take the boat again to the Lunar Isle. Pauline Polaris is a member of the Moon Clan.

She explains to you that Lokar went on a courageous trip to Karamja and he came across "a funny chap" named Papa Mambo. He obtained some saplings from a vine that grew in the region and brought them to her. He wanted her to grow and enhance the vine using magic. She explains that Lokar named them "Livid" and that he will be transporting what she grows to Brundt the Chieftain to help protect their village from wild beasts.

2.0 - The Farm

  • Livid plant patches - These are where the Livid plants grow. They change reguarlarly and randomly.
  • Fence repair spots - These spots are repaired by having a Lunar fencepost in your inventory. No tools are required.
  • Log pile - This is used to obtain the logs for Plank make which creates the Lunar fenceposts.
  • Produce pile - This is where the harvested Livid plants appear. A full produce pile has 10 Livid plants in it.
  • Trade wagon - This is where you deposit your Livid plant bunches.

2.2 - Strategies

It is not necessary to complete every task that is available, but it is helpful if you want to maximise your Produce points.

Fertilising patches

On the west side of the farm, there are several patches. Some of them will be empty and will need fertilizing. Simply fertilize them by left-clicking on them and the spell will be cast, allowing the plant to begin growing.

Curing the plants

The most difficult aspect of this activity is perhaps curing the plants. Upon attempting to cure them, you will be given an interface to identify the strain of plant that matches the one you are curing. The correct one must be chosen out of four possible options. There are four different kinds of livid which can be cured.

Fixing the fences

Some fences will be broken at each stage which will need repairing. To do this, take some Lunar lumber from the pile of logs in the bin. Convert them into Lunar fenceposts by casting Plank Make on them, then use the posts on the fences to fix them. A tip would be to make many fenceposts beforehand (around 10) so the next time broken fences begin to appear, time does not need to be spent converting the lumber.

Bunching the livids

At the final stage in the cycle, the produce pile will be filled with 10 Livid plants. Take them all from the pile, then bunch 5 of them together by casting String Jewellery on one of them. Converting 2 sets of 5 plants will give you two Livid plant bunches, which are to be deposited in the Trade wagon to the south-east.

Energising Pauline

Whenever Pauline is drained, cast Energy Transfer on her and you will be given four choices of phrases. In order to successfully energise Pauline, you must choose the correct one that is encouraging to her. Choose one of the following in the list:

  • "Come on, you're doing so well."
  • "Keep going! We can do this."
  • "Extraordinary!"
  • "Lokar will really appreciate this."
  • "Look at all the produce being made."
