XP Given

My plant finished growing. Checking it's health gave me 2,500 2,250 farming XP. I then plucked the fruit while holding a pair of Magic secateurs. I got the message: "You eat the fruit - successfully avoiding the spikes - and feel more experienced." I then received 15,471 Defence XP along with 50 Farming XP. The plant is destroyed in the process and I'm forced to replant one.

My Defence level was 90 and Farming was 78 at the time the fruit was plucked.

I did it just now without holding a pair of Magic secateurs. It gave me 5,157 Defence XP this time. I still got 50 Farming xp though. Just to note, my Defence level is still 90. I think the Magic secateurs may contribute to the defence xp given. Either that or my XP counter somehow got boosted by 10k xp.--Jlun2 (talk) 09:18, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
Any chance this is one of the new farming plants where "all harvest is gathered at once"; instead of having a pick-animation per yield? The second time you might've only 'picked one pear', while the first time the secateurs helped you and you picked 3 pears? 5157 * 3 = 15471. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 10:45, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
I think that may be the case. The problem is that picking the fruit doesn't get you a message indicating how much you've plucked, so there may be a chance that 5157 may not be the base value for level 90. There needs to be more attempts at this to find out. I just hope I don't end up leveling defence before that happens, or this'll be annoying. :P --Jlun2 (talk) 15:18, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, this time I plucked the plant while holding the Magic secateurs, and got 15,472 Defence (showed as 15,471 in the xp pop up) xp again. I think the Magic secateurs does infact help alot.--Jlun2 (talk) 17:31, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
Started table below combining three reports from Jlun2 and one from myself. Qloque (talk) 09:28, June 25, 2013 (UTC)
I just plucked one without the Magic secateurs just to see what happens, and I got the 15,472 xp award. I think 5157 may be the base reward XP for level 90, given what you got at 86.--Jlun2 (talk) 15:27, June 25, 2013 (UTC)
I....I somehow got 15474 Defence XP. I think there's a range of some sort.--Jlun2 (talk) 18:21, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Still at 90 Defence, and this time I got 10317 XP. Then there must be a range then.--Jlun2 (talk) 02:57, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
Apart from a minor variation of 3 exp, it still fits the rest of the data, 10314 = 3*5157. Lord knows what funky math Jagex is pulling :P . IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 05:46, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
My values for assumed 2 fruit vs 3 fruit aren't quite in a 2:3 ratio, either. Not sure if it's random variation thrown in, or my poor eyesight. Qloque (talk) 10:01, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
Worse yet, I have now gotten two harvests where the XP popup said 9663, but the difference between my after and my before defence XP was 9613. Qloque (talk) 21:06, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
A difference of 50 exp between the exp popup and your defence experience might be due to the "50 harvesting exp"? Do you just look at the exp popup, or do you set one of the exp counters to Defence and clear it before every harvest? IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 05:44, June 28, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, my idiocy. Yes, I overlooked the additional farm XP given on harvesting. Qloque (talk) 09:07, June 28, 2013 (UTC)
91 defence - 10503 defence XP and 2050 farm xp. WTF?--Jlun2 (talk) 22:34, June 28, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, after a while, I've noticed the XP I gain from this increases slightly every time I use it. I'm now at 18,546 XP now at 99 defence. Does it increases a bit the more you harvest one? If so, is there a cap? --Jlun2 (talk) 12:42, December 8, 2014 (UTC)
