Master Farmers are adept farmers that can be pickpocketed to receive a variety of seeds. Level 38 Thieving is required to pickpocket them. Successful pickpockets can result in most types of seeds, excluding tree seeds and fruit tree seeds. 43 Thieving experience is granted upon successfully pickpocketing a Master Farmer. Failing to pickpocket a Master Farmer results in being stunned for five seconds and taking three damage. If the player's inventory is full, they will be unable to pickpocket them.
At current GE prices, a successful pickpocket is on average worth 181.47 coins, or 362.94 with the full rogue's outfit. At maximum efficiency of 3,000 pickpockets per hour without any failure, this equates to 1,088,820.1 per hour.
Master Farmer locations[edit | edit source]
- Draynor: Martin the Master Gardener is found in Draynor. He wears the untrimmed Farming skillcape, and can be pickpocketed. He is also the starting point of the Fairytale I - Growing Pains quest. However, there is also a one-click pickpocketable Master Farmer at the same location.
- Ardougne: There is a one-click Master Farmer situated north-east of the north bank, just beyond the Guards, next to Richard's Farming Shop (the Medium Ardougne Diary reward does not apply here). Pickpocketing this farmer is a requirement for the Medium Ardougne Diary.
- Varrock: To the south of the Stone circle (south of the southern gate), there are a few Master Farmers wandering around the area, and one in the sheep pen.
- Hosidius: There is one Master Farmer located east of the town square and another to the north.
- Farming Guild: There is one Master Farmer located in all 3 sections of the guild (Requiring at least level 45 farming to access the guild). Using these Master Farmers allows you to quickly empty your inventory via the seed vault.
