The 7 farming tools: Hoe, Hammer, Sickle, Watering Can, Axe, Fishing Pole, Brush and Clippers.

There are six main types of farm tools including the hoe, waterpot, axe, hammer, pole, and sickle. They can be upgraded at the forge that you have to get Gaius or Raven to build later on in the game. There is also the brush and clippers which can't be upgraded, but you can buy those from the blacksmith. You can only buy the two lowest level farm tools of each type from the blacksmith, so you need to upgrade them at home or get lucky by choosing "Special Deals" in the Blacksmith.


Hoes are the most essential apparatus for farming, used to till the soil and heal to soil with Withered Grass by tilling it on the soil. Hoes aren't really fast to swing, but have quite a chance to knockout enemies. This tool is very useful to pull out Bamboo Shoots because it does not accidentally cut it for the second time like the Sickle.

Waterpots are essential gear for watering the crops. Instead of ATK, it grants M-ATK. It is fast to use for attacking and doesn't do much damage. You can fill it with water from ponds, rivers, lakes, and Water Magic Seed. Moreover, it really helps you in the Water Skill.

Sickles are not quite the gear to be use in battles, but it does have good attack radius. When it is used, you have to charge forward and slash very fast; it's very dangerous if you accidentally cut your own crops. Unlike other sharp bladed-weapons, sickles are much easier to use to cut weeds and crops. The Rusty Sickle is obtained after completing Wells' request, "Deliver message".

Axe has the same purpose as hammers, as both don't perform knock-backs or knock-outs, but possess much greater attack power. Most axes can deliver staggers, but with a 26% change ratio. All type of axes (including the battleaxe) can chop wood. Unlike battleaxes, workaxes do not need to be swung.

All hammers are great at knock-outs and knock-backs, the chances are 50% and above. But much weaker in staggering. Although that the damage is lesser than axes. All hammers can hits rock and also ores, unlike the battlehammers, workhammers don't need to be swung,

Fishing Pole

Fishing poles can also be use to attacks. The range is a bit farther than staves and also strikes faster. If it lands on any body of water, that would make the fishing pole busy. Upgraded fishing poles are much better to use for fishing, because better types of poles can help Micah to reel the fish longer by 13%. Fishing poles are the only essential tool for fishing.

The Brush is a tool used to raise affection with tamed monsters. You cannot make another Brush, so it requires you to buy one from the blacksmith when you lose one.


The clippers is a tool used to shear Wooly fur. You cannot make another Clippers, so you need to buy one from the blacksmith if you lost one. The Clippers are also a Wooly dropping.
