It’s been a busy day at my Wizard101 garden, on the test server. I was tending my plants and harvesting when, after a 5xp harvest from a Honeysickle, I unexpectedly leveled to rank 2.
That meant I could train up in the advanced bug be-gone spell and get rid of the persistent insect infestation that had sprung up around one of my Dandelions. The gnomes seemed please to be done with all the buzzing; they need quiet for their work. Not that the Boomshrooms let anything get any rest.
If rank 2 took 20xp, what of rank 3? Every harvest since I leveled to rank 2 has been 2xp. The Desperagus has given Siphon Health cards and the Dandelions Cattail resources. My experience bar has hardly moved. I don’t know if the days of 5xp harvests are over or not, but it definitely seems like the road from rank 2 to rank 3 will be longer than the one from rank 1 to rank 2.
Since I had a few extra plots, I filled them in with an additional Boomshroom, Desperagus, and a Dandelion. As of this morning, all had sprouted and seemed eager to be pollinated.
Rank 2 allows a gardener to grow Laugh-o-dills and Stinkweed. These two plants hate the Rank 1 plants, and the Rank 1 plants hate the Rank 2 plants. So I made a second garden a little ways off that I call the “evil” garden, just for fun. There I planted two each of the rank 2 plants. As of this morning, the Laugh-o-dills were trying to come up with some good jokes; the Stinkweed hadn’t yet sprouted. The gnomes on the job had no comment.
