Special patches

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The Vinery, the location of grape patches, one of the many unique patch types in Old School RuneScape

Many varieties of unique farming patches exist across Gielinor, used exclusively for growing very specific plants. Most often, only a single type of seed can be planted in these patches; though some, such as the Anima patch, have a few seeds available.

The mechanics of each specific patch may also be different than similar patches more familiar to the player. For example the celastrus tree, while having celastrus bark to harvest, has a variable yield and doesn't regenerate, making it unlike regular or fruit trees.
