Whether to get some vegetables for cooking or herbs to brew potions with, you’ll quickly realize how helpful farming can be in Melvor Idle. But, to even try your hands at it, you’ll need a lot of seeds and those are surprisingly hard to obtain in this game.
How to Get Seeds in Melvor Idle
There are three types of seeds in Melvor Idle: Allotment Seeds, Herb Seeds, and Tree Seeds. Allotments will need three seeds to plant before they’ll start growing, herbs start growing with two and a tree requires one seed. Some seed types can be obtained using certain methods, but in general, there are three main ways to get more seeds.
When cutting wood, every so often you’ll come across bird’s nests. Opening them can give you every possible type of allotment seeds and every possible tree seed with the exception of Apple Tree Seeds. You can use Bird Nest Potions to get a better chance of bird nests dropping.
Killing Monsters (and Farmers)
Herb Seeds commonly drop from monsters, but if you really want to earn seeds by fighting, the best way is to kill farmers. They carry pretty much every type of seed in the game (except for Pigtayle Seeds, Poraxx Seeds, and Barrentoe Seeds) and you can easily find them in the Farmlands Combat Area.
If you don’t feel like fighting, you can always steal seeds from farmers. You’ll only need level 30 thieving skills to successfully pickpocket every possible seed, but the resulting loot will be random.
If you have a mastery level 11 on a certain crop, you’ll have a chance to get back some seeds during harvest. Lastly, seeds can sometimes be found by opening chests and herb sacks. Though these methods are less certain, they can save you some farmer bloodshed in the long run.

Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide
Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!
Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms
Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.
While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.
Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.
Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.
Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.
You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.
Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.
Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.
In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.
Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.
Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!
And that is how you manage internal affairs in Total War: Three Kingdoms. Now that you know the intricacies of the court you can be your very own Sun Tzu and lead by example!
