Why play farmer?

Post by elcampesinow » Fri Apr 10, 2020 3:58 am

I hope I´m missing something here.

If characters were sharing a total amount of xp per kill, then I´d definitely play farmer since the other three would get more xp from each kill.... but since that´s not the case...

I don´t get it. The farmer would hog all the food, leaving the others hungry.

There is no XP sharing in LoG.

The farmer hogs nothing. Don't want to feed a character? Feel free. You're the one in control.

Why play Farmer? Challenge. Fun. Being OP AF. In that order.

As the in-game description implies, the Farmer class is intended to be weak, and in "normal" play it is.

A knowledgeable and very skilled speedrunner would want to use at least one farmer, because killing monsters at low levels takes a lot more time than skipping them, whereas you can pick up and eat food while moving.

If for some reason you want to grind to levels above 19 (you do not want to do this), it is faster with Farmer than with other classes because their experience gain from food is exponential, and there is a specific location with "convenient" respawning food. It is still unbearably slow.
