Calculator talk:Farming/Herbs

This talk page is for discussing the Calculator:Farming/Herbs page.

This calculator is currently inaccurate, because the average harvest is actually between six and seven herbs, not six. Is there anyone who can rewrite it using 6.5 instead of 6? --troacctid 22:23, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

I have reason to believe that it is not actually 6.5, but more closer 7.5. I Just make the necessary calculations for what I want in my head if I were you, or make your own calc in your sandbox. Zig 13:15, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Is that including patches that die? Also, are there any sources where harvest logs can be found and referenced? This might be getting into a similar area as monster drop logs :-( To3cutt3r 15:20, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

I have a log of over 2k herb seeds and the average is 6.6 with magic secateurs (6 + 10%). I agree that the calculator should be corrected for this. I'd be willing to work on it if there's consensus and the original author can't be bothered. S3v3rian 17:33, January 18, 2010 (UTC)


Argh. This page needs serious reformatting. Some columns are per four patch and some per one. 86.50.67.122 05:42, March 21, 2010 (UTC)


The calculator assumes no herb deaths, but we get some sometimes unless you spent all your time checking all your patches, which most people do not do.--Degenret01 03:44, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Reverts[edit source]

I've been reverting some additions/deletion from a user because they've been deleting a useful column. If the column in question is not deleted, then I have no problem with the edits.

The previous edit has good points A and B, but the new edit has good points A, C, D, E, F, G. https://runescape.wiki/w/RS%3AIAR, Use common sense, and add B to the new edit and not revert it back to A and B. Please remember to sign off using 4 "~"s,thank you. 220.255.7.197 23:18, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

Split[edit source]

Due to the size of this page and the associated time in generating it, I propose splitting off what is currently labeled as the 2nd calculator into a separate calculator, and removing the herb cleaning portion that is already redundant with Calculators/Herbs.

Any thoughts?

Sorting Issues[edit source]

I've noticed that the Scroll of Life and Juju Farming column doesn't affect the table at all when trying to sort it. For some reason this problem doesn't seem to affect any other columns. Any ideas on why, and how to fix it?    Guestbook  Metapig  Talk Page   15:30, November 5, 2015 (UTC)

Bloodweed[edit source]

I readded the bloodweed in the table, I see no reason not to include it: It is useful to have it in the table to be able to tell if you should do bloodweed or other hers in wilderness patch, and the bloodweed patch alone can be a significant part of a herb run profit.

Pharm Ecology[edit source]

Hey, was trying to add the disease_var to the death_var, but I didn't really understand the ifeq to add it to the death_var. But anyway, it should be added to it to change the total_cost on Calculator:Template/Farming/Herbs2, because as it is right now the total_cost still counts the death_var even if the user checks the Disease-free patch. And if it's not what that is, then an option to the relic Pharm Ecology should be added. Neoronio20 (talk) 04:15, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
