Information about the Level 0 Gardening quest
Gardening Quests can be performed by up to two Heroes at a time in each of the incentivized liquidity pools listed in the Seed Box in the Gardens. These quests award Power Tokens and JEWEL, as well as Plants and other rare items.
A friend of the gardens is a friend of mine. Please, let me show you our ways. Together, we can grow a beautiful field.
Gardening Quests are begun in the Professions area by speaking to the Gardener. Heroes may Garden in any of the available Gardens, but increased Token Rewards are only available from those in which the player has planted seeds, and the Token yield increases with the number of seeds planted by the player in that particular garden.
The Gardening Quest also has a chance to reward Heroes with Plants, Gaia's Tears, Runes, and Green Eggs whether the player has seeds in the garden or not. All plants may be sold to the Vendor in the Marketplace for Gold or swapped at the Trader for other tokens or items. Some plants are reagents in Potions and Enhancement Stones, and others are used to hatch Pets. All plants may also have uses that are as of yet unknown.

Token Rewards

The first Hero sent to quest in each Garden will be rewarded in the realm's Power Token, while the second Hero will earn JEWEL. These rewards are funded by the Quest Reward Fund wallet on each realm. Gardening yields rely heavily on both the player's share of the Liquidity Pools that their Heroes will work in and on the overall balance of the Quest Fund. Consequently, there will be a large variance in yields between players and pools as well as a variance in yields over time as the Quest Fund grows or shrinks.


Gardening Token Rewards use the following formula, which applies to both Power Token and JEWEL rewards, when applicable.
earnRate (per stamina spent) =annealingFactor* (rewardPool*poolAllocation *LPowned* (0.1 + (WIS+VIT) / 1222.22 +GrdSkl/ 244.44)) / (43,200 - (7200 *geneBonus))
Calculated from these variables:
  • annealingFactor - A multiplier applied at launch that gradually decreases over time, letting the Quest Fund continue to grow. annealingFactor begins at 50 and decreases every two weeks to a minimum of 1 after 26 weeks.
    • annealingFactor = (9100 - 49 * (daysSinceLaunch/ 14) * 14) / 182
    • For the purposes of calculating daysSinceLaunch, Gardening Quests on Crystalvale launched on 9/15/2022.
  • rewardPool - The relevant token balance in the Quest Reward Fund.
  • poolAllocation - The percent of token emissions allocated to the specific garden (in decimals, e.g. 0.1 for 10%).
  • LPowned - The percent of the Liquidity Pool that the player owns in the selected Garden (in decimals, e.g. 0.0015 for 0.15%).
  • WIS / VIT - The value of the Hero's Wisdom and Vitality stats, respectively.
  • GrdSkl - The Hero's Gardening skill (rounded down, e.g. use 16 for 16.9 Gardening).
  • geneBonus - If a Hero has the Gardening profession gene, it provides a 20% bonus to Token returns, increases the chances of finding Gaia's Tears and Runes, and decreases the amount of time Gardening per stamina from 12 minutes to 10 minutes. If the Hero has this gene, geneBonus= 1, if not, geneBonus= 0.

Minimum Reward

The minimum Token Reward earned per Stamina spent is .0002. If earnRate is below this threshold, it will be raised to .0002.
Minimum rewards are only active when there is at least 420,000 of the appropriate token available in the Quest Reward Fund.

Gardening Jackpots

For every 15 Stamina spent during the quest, the player will receive a bonus roll with a 9.9% chance to receive .1 bonus Token and a .1% chance to receive an additional 1 bonus Token. This bonus is halved if the Hero does not have Gardening profession gene. Players cannot receive both bonuses at once.
Jackpot rewards are only active when there is at least 950,000 of the appropriate token available in the Quest Reward Fund.
