40 Different Plants

There are 40 different plant images (also the blank plant) that I will upload when I get home from school. We should note which plant gives which image. — Cool12309 (talk) 11:33, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Whoa! It's a... dickweed? Ha! --Johnny Treehugger (talk) 00:02, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

HP & MP Regeneration

So far, with the Seltzer Watercress at The Smut Orc Logging Camp (outdoors), I've been getting an MP regen range of 5-14 as a level 9 Disco Bandit. (figured someone should start us off getting that info :P) Gumog (talk) 16:15, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

On the Battlefield, I think I was getting around the same rate of MP regen you're getting with the Watercress, and something like 15-20 HP with the Lettuce Spray. --Idwin (talk) 05:18, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Other spading things

A Dis Lichen is reducing monster attack and defense by 10 points each for me, at level 12, fighting things in the Sewer, with +100ML - so I can't think it's tied to your level, or to the monster's level (or if it is, I'd think it must cap at 10... because holy crap is a 10-point delevel just not that helpful...).

Also, does anyone know if the Rutabegger increases meat drops, as all of its messages imply, or if it increases item drops, as its description states? --Idwin (talk) 05:18, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Planting messages

Should we document the messages given for planting each plant? For example:

Canned Spinach: "Did you know that Canned Spinach actually doesn't contain massive amounts of iron to give you strength? But don't tell the Spinach that!" the Friar says, chuckling.

Aloe Guv'nor: "Ah, the cheeky, cheery Aloe Guv'nor," the Friar says, smiling. "He's as useful as his accent is adorable."

Pitcher Plant: "You know, some of the Order tried to cross-breed a Pitcher Plant with yeast so it would yield beer," the Friar says, "but I personally enjoy the soft drinks it produces naturally."

--Vorzer (talk) 17:10, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

The planting messages should go on this page. The combat messages I think should be on a separate page, so this one doesn't get too cluttered. —Yendor (talk) 18:48, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
OK, not sure how this should be formatted on the page, but I'll note all the in-combat messages I saw for those plants here:

Canned Spinach

The Canned Spinach demands you do a couple of push-ups after the fight. Man, no wonder he got fired from his last gig.

The Canned Spinach sticks a corncob pipe in your mouth, then shotguns spinach into it to make you stronger. Or possibly kill you.

The Canned Spinach tells you a yarn about a night he spent with a bunch of stewed tomatoes, while you do some push-ups and pull-ups.

The Canned Spinach spots you on some free weights while he tells you about the pop-eyed lunatic who fired him from his last job.

The Canned Spinach tosses a few leaves into your mouth. You munch them and feel a little mightier.

The Canned Spinach arm-wrestles you while regaling the sad story of how he got fired from his last job.

The Canned Spinach has you do some crunches and jumping-jacks after the fight, so you can stay strong to the finich.

The Canned Spinach orders you to run some laps after the fight, so you can stay in fightin' trim.

The Canned Spinach has you do some shadowboxing after the fight, to work your gigantic forearms.

The Canned Spinach throws some leaves into your mouth. You gulp them down and flex your giant forearms.

Aloe Guv'nor

The Aloe Guv'nor says, "You won't Adam and Eve what I can do, chum!" and restores some of your HP.

The Aloe Guv'nor heals some of your HP, and doesn't even demand some Becks in return.

The Aloe Guv'nor says, "Cor, you look like you fell down the Apples, mate!" and heals you a bit.

The Aloe Guv'nor eats some pizzer and a beeah, then restores some of your HP.

The Aloe Guv'nor guzzles some HP sauce, then restores some of your HP.

The Aloe Guv'nor says, "let's pop 'round to the pub for a pint, mate!" and heals you a little.

The Aloe Guv'nor downs some bangers 'n' mash, then heals you a bit.

The Aloe Guv'nor says, "this'll set you roight, mate!" and heals some of your HP.

The Aloe Guv'nor sings a song about chimney sweeping with a questionable accent, then heals you a bit.

The Aloe Guv'nor says, "take a butcher's at what I can do, mate!" and restores some of your HP.

The Aloe Guv'nor says, "looks like you're in deep Barney, mate!" and heals some of your HP.

Pitcher Plant

The Pitcher Plant leafs through its recipes, then pours you out some sparkling cider.

The Pitcher Plant upends itself over you. Fortunately, it's full of refreshing seltzer water.

The Pitcher Plant pours you a drink. Turns out it was full of Dyspepsi-Cola! Neat!

The Pitcher Plant pours you some Sarsaparilla. You can't spell it, but you can sure be refreshed by it.

The Pitcher Plant throws a baseball at you. Just kidding; it actually pours some Mountain Stream down your throat.

The Pitcher Plant pours some sparkling water down your gullet.

The Pitcher Plant bubbles to carbonate the water inside it, then pours it down your throat.

The Pitcher Plant curls a leaf into a cup, fills it with tonic water, and gives you a refreshing drink.

The Pitcher Plant digs deep and pours you out a glass of root beer.

The Pitcher Plant pours you some ginger ale. It's good for what ails you.

I also spaded the Aloe Guv'nor and Pitcher Plant HP and MP recovery. Over 388 combats, I received between 10 and 30 HP and between 5 and 15 MP after every fight. The average was 19.896907216494845360824742268041 HP and 10.128865979381443298969072164948 MP, so I'm pretty sure it's 10-30 HP and 5-15 MP. --Vorzer (talk) 18:32, 2 May 2013 (UTC)


Is there a place yet for recording zones? I know that the individual location pages have a "terrain" variable in their data, which I've been working to update, but all the zones in one place would be handy. Would it be best on a separate page, or a (very) large table on this page?

I've been recording the zones so far on a document for my own usage and am willing to transfer it to the wiki and continue spading (I have most ascension-relevant locations, almost no IotM-related locations), but I can't presume a method of formatting.


--Graymalkin (#624900) (talk) 16:46, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

  • i believe the idea is to autocat the zones using the template when all the data's been entered. why the wait, how useful that would be and whether that fulfils your request are beyond me i'm afraid. --Evilkolbot (talk) 17:13, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Gray, unable to input onto your spreadsheet. Fernswarthy's Basement is N/A, the friar does not recognize the zone and gives "Hello! You should go scout out an appropriate location for me to plant something... at." after adventuring there.--MageRed (talk) 00:23, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
    • And not sure if it should be mentioned somewhere, the Artistic Goth Kid's black crayon free combats are subject to what ever plants are in the zone you are currently adventuring in.--MageRed (talk) 04:42, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

All three of these zones are "indoors" [Dungeon FAQ - Level 1] [Dungeon FAQ - Level 2] [Dungeon FAQ - Level 3] --Hastifer (talk) 18:28, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Table Removal

In response to the removal of my post on the main page earlier detailing the zone types for most of the zones in the game and what I consider to be a frankly rude response in the revisions section bearing in mind how much work it took me, I'd like to point out that the main page still says:

"This page is in need of content.

Zone categories, etc."

I am fully aware that the zones were spaded months ago, but the point of wiki pages is that people can go to a page and get all the information they need. I spent a fair few hours of my time comprising that table, taking information from various sources to comprise it on the main page. Many people may not know that they can find more information on the talk page and as such may be missing out on that knowledge. Even if that wasn't the case, the page itself says it is in need of content. As such, I am extremely annoyed by the response, as I was only trying to help people in a way in which the page itself requested. As if its almost immediate removal was not bad enough, I do not expect to be insulted by being treated like a child. I am not living in a bubble with no knowledge of the state of spading in the kingdom. Perhaps if it had all been spaded so long ago someone before me should have made the effort to upload all the data to one location so people were not forced to trawl through all the pages for all the zones they were interested in to work out the terrain. I worked hard on that so others could benefit, and people who saw it when I was finally done when I linked to it in /games appreciated it. I am utterly disgraced by the rudeness it has received and I'll think twice before I decide to take time out to add to this site now. --Icy elemental (talk) 04:40, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

  • I am sorry that I have offended you. The point of my edit was that the information you provided was not needed, and I find the category links better as you can view a lot more with less scrolling, as well as being automatically updated. While I hate to have made you waste several hours of your work, the wiki is constantly improving and part of contributing to a wiki is knowing that your edits will most likely be edited, sometimes mercilessly. If you don't like it, then do not submit it here. In fact, take a look at the 4th to last line in the big warning text - "If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly, then do not submit it here.". — Cool12309 (talk) 04:49, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
    • Was not needed by whom? The player who knows the ins and outs of the game or the player who just about has a basic knowledge of the wiki and wants all the information they need to be in as similar a place as possible so they do not have to trek through multiple pages? Perhaps it is my own lack of knowledge of the wiki, but when I try to find the terrain category by clicking on 'terrain' from any location page, it simply links me to the page which I added to in the first place. The point of putting it in the format I did was that it was possible to sort into alphabetical order by zone, allowing one to scroll directly to where the locations they were intending to adventure soon were or, even more easily, having all data on one page so a simple ctrl + f search would do the trick with no need for scrolling. I would have had no objection to the editing of my additions, but the entire removal to me seemed pretty unnecessary. Thank you for apologising, perhaps I overreacted a little, but it did feel like you were delivering an insult in your revisions notes.--Icy elemental (talk) 04:57, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
      • No insults were intended. If you really feel that it is important to add to the page, I am not objected to it. I guess there isn't any one page that has all the locations on it and so this could be helpful. — Cool12309 (talk) 12:35, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
