Master Farmers are adept farmers, that cannot be attacked and can only be acted upon by pickpocketing. Level 38 Thieving is required to pickpocket them. Successful pickpockets result in a variety 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 125.19 coins, or 250.39 with the full rogue’s outfit. At maximum efficiency of 3,000 pickpockets per hour without any failure, this equates to 751,168.5 per hour.

Ironmen looking for herb seeds can expect up to 60 high level seeds (ranarr or higher) per hour at maximum efficiency.

Master Farmer locations [ edit | edit source ]

  • Draynor:Martin the Master Gardener is found in Draynor. He wears the untrimmed Farmingskillcape, and can be pickpocketed. He is also the starting point of A Fairy Tale Part Iquest. However, there is also a one-click pickpocketable Master Farmer at the same location.
  • Ardougne: There is a one-click Master Farmer situated northeast of the north bank, just beyond the Guards, next to Richard’s Farming Shop(the medium Ardougne Diary reward does not apply here [1] ).
  • 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.

Pickpocketing [ edit | edit source ]

Pickpocket chance [ edit | edit source ]

The chance of successfully pickpocketing a Master Farmer scales between 91/256 at level 1, and 241/256 at level 99. [2]

With the multiplicative +10% pickpocketing bonus from the Hard Ardougne Diary, players will stop failing to pickpocket them at level 94 Thieving.

Master Farmers are adept farmers, that cannot be attacked and can only be acted upon by pickpocketing. Level 38 Thieving is required to pickpocket them. Successful pickpockets result in a variety 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.

Pickpocketing master farmers

38+ (94+ recommended)
50 and 50 for Rogue equipment
Decent

Ardougne cloak 3/4
Rogue equipment for guaranteed double loot
Seed box to save inventory space (recommended)
Food (if below 94 )

IMPORTANT: The listed profit rate is calculated at 94 while wearing full Rogue equipment (requires 50 and 50 ) with completion of the Ardougne Diary (hard) (requires 72 , boostable). Players with lower thieving will not achieve this profit rate and should see the table below for their estimated profit.

Pickpocketing master farmers can yield good amounts of seeds for Farming. The real money-makers are Ranarr seeds and Snapdragon seeds (worth 45,466 and 54,551 respectively). These seeds are very rare (appearing every 1/302 and 1/2083 pickpockets) but make up 92.4% of the profit.

The master farmer, whether he’s Martin in Draynor or not, has to be trapped inside the fence to optimise the Thieving experience. He moves on his own accord, so players will have to wait patiently to trap him. After he’s trapped, players should be courteous and keep the gate closed.

If low on health, players can steal some cake from the Baker’s stall in Ardougne. Otherwise, players will need to use conventional food to restore Hitpoints.

Profit varies enormously based off thieving level, greatly improving after certain milestones. At 50 players can equip full Rogue equipment for guaranteed double loot, doubling profit. At 72 players can complete the Ardougne Diary (hard) for an additional 10% pickpocketing boost. It is not recommended to thieve Master farmers for profit at low levels as there are much better money making methods out there. Below are some experience and profit estimates at certain levels.

At 38 thieving, players should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 57.5% leading to 758 pickpockets per hour giving 32,607 and 145,005 profit.

At 50 thieving, players gain the ability to use Rogue equipment for guaranteed double loot. At this level while using the equipment they should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 64.7% leading to 943 pickpockets per hour giving 40,542 and 360,590 profit.

At 60 thieving, using full rogue equipment players should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 70.7% leading to 1129 pickpockets per hour giving 48,550 and 431,807 profit.

At 70 thieving, players can boost to complete the Ardougne diary (hard) for the 10% (multiplicative) improved pickpocketing success. At this level (using full rogue equipment) they should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 84.4% leading to 1724 pickpockets per hour giving 74,122 and 659,249 profit.

At 80 thieving, using full rogue equipment and Ardougne diary bonus players should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 91% leading to 2148 pickpockets per hour giving 92,383 and 821,660 profit.

At 90 thieving, using full rogue equipment and Ardougne diary bonus players should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 97.6% leading to 2730 pickpockets per hour giving 117,389 and 1,044,068 profit.

At 94+ thieving, with the Ardougne diary bonus players will no longer fail to pickpocket Master farmers and (using full rogue equipment) can achieve the maximum possible rate of 3000 pickpockets per hour giving 129,000 and 1,147,332 profit.
