What's the minimum amount of land in order to make a decent profit? I don't have much play time at the moment and am looking to eliminate some properties.

1. Jester purse farming requires no land and it's very profitable. If you play a mage with AOE and have decent gear (Magnificent) there are places where you can farm hundreds of purses per hour. This will probably be the most profitable vocation until May or July at least.

2. With deflation striking the last few weeks running trade packs or sport fishing have returned to reasonably profitable status and you don't need land unless you use larders. Larders would need a 16x16.

0 square metres of land.

Making a decent profit from land works pretty much the same no matter how many farms you have. If you can't efficiently work 1 farm, what makes you think you can efficiently work 2, 3, or 4?

There is no minimum amount of land. In many ways you don't even need land to make a profit.

Aquafarms are decent for making money... on land tho, try larders and making packs - storing them for a peace time in a conflict region is decent money every once in a while

I'm so happy to see this sentiment from players. Yes, you don't need land to make a profit! Not everyone needs to be a farmer or rancher, there are plenty of other professions that turn a profit.

That said, I find its still helpful to have a house and a 16x16, just to grow a little bit of what you need, and to enjoy this aspect of the game.

Farming will never make you rich. Especially in a deflationary economy. You'll want at least a 16 to grow stuff that you need, like dailies.

Otherwise, making money is a function of creativity in this game, not a result of land ownership.

PS: If in doubt, grow mats for dailies. They will always sell at a decent clip. Duck pens, rice, garlic, ginseng equal consistent profitable income.

Land is a commodity in its own right and therefore has intrinsic value. What you do with it is really your choice, but you only have that choice if you own it. Lose it and trust me there will be always someone who wants it. I wouldn't part with my land, it is a very important aspect of the game. Something I worked very hard to get.

No real return from farming.......................TS was a hit for a while.... Average 2 TS's a day but now prices have dropped. Back to farming lemons.

Yup agree, the more you have the more profit you make.

basic rule of thumb is don't bother farming unless you are growing mats to be used in more skilled labor (alchemy, cooking, etc).
