Title: Getting Seeds
Post by: Xion on August 01, 2018, 09:37:03 pm
Is there a new strategy in TW2 for getting a decent number of seeds?

I know up to level 3 I can dig, and I can probably turn my CW into a giant array of holes to get a bunch of level 5 seeds, but there seems to be a hole (pun partially intended) in amassing seeds for growing trees to level whittling and / or construction.

In the past, higher level tree seeds came from statue droppings, but the lower seeds as long as you allowed some trees time to age, you'd be rewarded with a surplus of seeds.  As I understand TW2, you still get more wood, but the number of seeds is drastically reduced on yield. 

So how do I get the 5+ seeds and in large enough quantities to grow them for levelling?

You still get a lot of seeds if you let them age.
My strategy has been to plant lots of trees and go back to harvest them later after I spent time doing other stuff.

Another strategy is to leave cloud world and find level 5 trees that were planted a long time ago. There are tons of trees out there for you to take!

I never actually climbed my way through the tree levels by whittling idols and sacrificing seeds, because there were trees out there in the wild.

So there is still that much just lying around? I assumed you guys had pillaged most things.


I was concerned about the number of seeds as I've seen some trees chopped in the update messages, and although you get a few dozen wood, you only get like 3-4 seeds.  Like you need a starter kit to plant a bunch of trees and then you'll be good.


Maybe I just need to jump already, lol.

Workers combine both Logs and Seeds when they cut down a tree.
After every successfully harvested unit the next one will have a decreased chance of success.

Workers start with logs and, if the tree is super old, by the time they get to seeds the drop rate is probably very low.
My workers specifically are chopping down 100+ year old trees, and that's why you see such a small amount of seeds.
Cutting down a 10 year old tree is somewhat of a sweet spot for plenty of logs, and a healthy amount of seeds.

I don't know if i'm explaining that very well....


If you cut a tree down by hand then it will do Logs and Seeds drops separately, and you'll get the full amount of seeds.


Lower tier stuff is mostly ignored, and you can find tons of it out there.

I understand what you're saying. 

So the reduced number is from workers, if I want the seeds, cut it myself.  Or target the happy place (10 years) for good lumber and seeds.



Edit: This sucks.... wasn't paying attention to how much health I was losing doing weaving, and died.  All my gold saved is gone. That really hurts v_v.

Yea, it does suck! :/
I've probably died the most out of anyone on Toadwater...
I used to die a lot...

Hopefully this doesn't discourage you from playing.
You can always make that gold back!

Losing items can be a huge set-back though...

ive found 100 yr old trees cut personally all buffed up with a totem
dont worry about losing your goodies when you die
if you get it the first time you will replace it so much easier
its all about your dwarf's exp

Lol, yea I'm not going to get all upset about losing the gold and quit.  I'm not so fickle.  Its just funny in a super cringe type of way.  Felt like an idiot...

I know long term gold is easy to get, just have to re-grind some cash. 

Will probably jump this week sometime.  Thanks for the offer of help to both of you guys.

Do any of you guys have level 4-8 seeds you'd be willing to sell or part with?  If you want some specific item, like ghost peppers or golden radishes, I can work to get some of those. 


I don't see any fast / better method to get a bunch of those seeds except for digging a bunch of holes to get thousands of 1-3 seeds to sacrifice.

Thanks!

Sure, they will be in the hoard on SWI

Thanks!  Do you want anything for them?

I need a bird to get back and forth from SWI, correct?


Title: Re: Getting Seeds

Yea, you will need a bird from the Black Tupelo tree

Do you have that yet?

--Edit--

I just sent you 50 Toadkens so you can buy some Super Birdhouses.
They will give you the bird immediately, and the bird will have 100 uses

I have the trees, just have to get wood at an appropriate level to make a birdhouse, which I can do.  Then wait for the bird.


You guys changed your names.  Who is this now?

Lol, ok.  How do you guys change your names so often.. or why?
 
Shits n' giggles.

Well, I probably shouldn't be telling you this on a public feed...

but I am being watched by FBI agents.
I change my name frequently to keep them on their toes.

Toadwater time is the real deal.

did you get the super duper bird houses and grab those seeds??


Title: Re: Getting Seeds
Post by: Xion on August 21, 2018, 12:56:51 am
I looked at them, but didn't know if I should spend my tokens on them.  Was just going to dig up some white fir seeds for a temp solution when I get home to make level 3's.


Edit:  I'm still at work right now, so can't put a lot of time into TW.
