What is Farming Weight?
Farming Weight is a number that essentially represents how long and how efficient a player has been
farming. It is calculated by using a different formula for each crop that a player has farmed, and then
adding them all together. Farming XP is not a factor in this calculation outside of one time bonus
weight amounts. This is to ensure that players who farm using rabbit or who farm higher XP crops don't
have an unfair advantage over players who farm using other methods.
Farming Weight Per Crop
Each crop has a different weight. The weight of a crop is determined by the theoretical maximum amount
of crops that can be farmed in the same timespan. The following table shows the amount of each crop
needed to increase your farming weight by 1.
|Crop ||Collection Required Per 1 Weight ||Base Drops Per Break|
|Cactus ||177,254 ||2|
|Carrot ||302,062 ||3|
|Cocoa Beans ||267,174 ||3|
|Melon ||485,308 ||5|
|Mushroom ||90,178 - 180,356* ||1|
|Nether Wart ||250,000 ||2.5|
|Potato ||300,000 ||3|
|Pumpkin ||98,285 ||1|
|Sugar Cane ||200,000 ||2|
|Wheat ||100,000 ||1|
Base Drops Per Break refers to the average amount of drops you get from breaking a crop without any
buffs. Sugar Cane and Cactus actually have a base drop of 1 per block, but because you can break 2
blocks at once, 2 is noted here. Full calculation breakdowns will be added in the future.
* Mushroom weight is calculated dynamically because of the Mooshroom Cow pet. Because Cactus and Sugar
Cane are both 2 blocks per break, the cow's perk gives you twice the normal rate of mushroom drops than
from other crops. To counter this, you get half the weight from mushrooms for the ratio of Cactus and
Sugar Cane farmed out of the total weight, and the remainder is calculated normally.
