Scroll of life detail.png

The scroll of life requires a Farming level of 25 and a Dungeoneering level of 25 to use. The scroll can be read to unlock the passive ability to occasionally receive seeds back while harvesting or digging up plants. There is a 5% chance of receiving a seed from a tree - including when players pay a farmer to remove it - and a 10% chance from most other non-flower patch. Exceptions include spirit trees and calquat trees. Seeds returned from a live herb patch will be the same type as the herb being harvested. The amount of seeds returned can be up to equal the amount of seeds used for the patch (an Allotment patch would recover up to 3 seeds).

Following an update on 23 June 2014 a chatbox message was introduced to notify players when they had received a seed back from their scroll of life: Your Scroll of Life saves you a seed!

Upon receiving a seed back after having a farmer dig up the tree, players will receive the message: "As the farmer chops the tree down, you spot a seed in the leftovers." Paying farmers to look after crops does not affect the chances of receiving seeds.

When read, the player will be given the message: The secret is yours! You read the scroll and unlock the long lost technique of regaining seeds from dead farming patches.

Although it is a members-only item, the scroll of life still benefits farming when the player is free to play.
