Workers can get hired from the Shop Keeper at Global level 400. Up to 10 workers that can be sent out to find Ores, Woods, Seeds, Tree seeds, Brewing Ingredients and Cooked Food. At a cost of 1,000,000 coins each, one will return after 12 hours, for a total of 120 hours (or 5 days) when sending all ten. It's not possible to cancel a mission in progress.
Note: the amount and rarity are estimated for one worker and based on data collection.
The total value of one Ores worker when selling all the ores to the Game Shop is usually below 1,000,000 coins. Thus, this option is useful for hardcore players only to trade low level ore for high level ones like quartz, marble and promethium.
Seeds are so rare, especially Gold Leaf Seeds, that this option may give profit to both standard and hardcore players.
The value of tree seeds usually comes short of 1 million coins, except when your workers find Stardust Tree Seeds. Since woodcutting plot seed drops are quite common, it is usually not recommended to send them for tree seeds.
Brewing Ingredients Edit
The drop rate for a spell scroll is 1/4 per worker, while brewing scroll is 1/30 per worker.
Cooked Food Edit
This is usually the least favourable option for 1,000,000 coins.
