Perks (player-owned farm)

Perks are benefits that the player receives from the player-owned farm when an animal reaches the elder stage in a pen with a farm totem (purchased from Farmers' Market). All pens on the Manor Farm and the Anachronia Dinosaur Farm, with the exception of the breeding pens, can have farm totems placed on them. If there is at least one elder animal in the pen, the totem will activate a Tier 1 perk related to the contained livestock. Tier 2 perks can be activated by having the same elder species in 2 pens with farm totems attached to them.

Possible perks include a chance to gain a clue scroll from harvesting, increased damage to all spiders including Araxxor/Araxxi, increased yield on mushrooms, Farming Guild reputations increases and a chance to save skillchompas, to name a few. Two elder animals must be placed in two separate pens for the Tier 2 perks to activate. For this reason, there are no tier 2 perks for the small and medium animals at the Anachronia Dinosaur Farm, since it has only has one small pen and one medium pen. Animals that have male/female perks that differ but occupy the same pen (equipped with a farm totem) will receive both the male and female version of the perk.

There are a total of 26 perks available, with 12 from the Manor Farm: one per gender for cows, chickens, and sheep, and one each for the other animal types.[1], and 14 from the Anachronia Dinosaur Farm: one each per animal.
