The Florist Friar

The most important part of any Florist Friar strategy is to find a way to remember to use it. This is extremely difficult to do and is left as an exercise for the reader.

Beyond that, the florist friar's plants can provide a player with a number of extremely ascension-relevant and powerful benefits.

This guide will only cover Territorial Plants and +Combat initiative plants, as those tend to be the most ascension relevant.

Notes

  • You may only plant one of each plant type per type of zone per day.
  • With the new ML interactions, the +ML plants are equivalent in mainstat gains to the other territorial plants, and also provide offstats, both of which are worth considering when planning out powerleveling.
  • It is also recommended you use some of the other plants in places where you want to ramp up the difficulty, such as the MP regen and block attacks/delevel ones. Not necessary, but it does provide some good quality of life.
