    Whats the point in doing larders anymore since 3.0?

    Just came back and played prior to 3.0 I used to do larders for gold in land or cross continent to east. But now since they removed shatigon's blessings (cheaper resources because it uses vocation) it now uses 1 royal seed PER larder. On my auction cluster 1 royal seed=9g. That -9g loss plus the mats alone make doing larders no longer worth it... u make the same if not less that u'd get from regular/fertilizer packs... if not less gold now, that is also not factoring in how much labor it costs to do larders versus regular packs. Even if u bring those larders for resources like charcoal u don't make that much more... and it depends on the cost of charcoal stabilizers on ah and royal seed prices on ah. It only takes 1 ship full of larders lost too to make it not worth it at all. I can only justify doing it now if u received the royal seed yourself via farming. Is there any other way to get it?

    Yesterday I planted about 400 tomato seeds, got 60 gold from selling royal seeds. If I would decide to make larderds I can get 110-130 gold even with short trade route up to 240g with long... Just 20k farming...

    Makes it more bot friendly.

    I'm surprised the prices are still this high on the seeds. I would have thought people would've botted the crap out of this by now.

    To make it clear, Plox is a liar and many of similar creations are easy to detect.

    You can only single plant for so long until
    1. you loose your mind and find another sorce of income.
    2. Run fertilizer packs like the rest do.
    3. Loose you and rage quit.
    4. Keep at it, level farming to around 150k and watch the seeds drop more often and run larders to freedich.

    There are still runs worth planting larders for, even if you buy the seeds at 8g each. Granted, not a lot of runs...

    What about Karkasse to haranaya for charcoals? Rokhala to nuia for charcoals? I mean larder packs.

    I do Rokhala to Solzreed where you get more profit per pack than with ferts (I also do ferts). Keep in mind that it also is a matter of convenience. I don't have that much time to run and I'd rather get more profit per pack than ever so slightly more s/l (which isnt even certain for this run) but having to run way more packs.
