Harvesting is one of the main features of RoA.
Unlike Battling, where you gain experience and gold, Harvesting gives you resources and task experience instead. There are four resources that can be harvested. Food, Iron, Stone and Wood. You level in each resource separately, resources and experience gained also increases in proportion to your level in that resource. Drops that you obtain while harvesting are also quite different than Battling.
It is also important to note that you need a corresponding tool for each resource, without it, you cannot harvest at all. The only way to boost your harvesting experience gain is by purchasing an upgraded tool from the other areas. These can be bought in that area's Forge, a table illustrating the different tools found in other areas and their effects can be found here.
Resources gained from harvesting are used for:
Currently, these factors influence resources gained during each harvesting action.
- Resource level, which is directly proportional to harvesting level (higher level, more gain)
- Tool levels, which increases resource gained by a specific amount
- Harvesting Skills in the Training Center. If maxed, gives 100% more gain in the corresponding resource
- Clan buildings which boosts harvesting gain
The table below is a Harvest Level guide for you to estimate the time you need to invest in harvesting, This table assumes there is no frenzied quadruple or any boost in the experience and gain. This also doesn't take into account upgraded tools. Can't promise this is 100% accurate, with factor involving network speed, server load and all that magic math.
