You earn +x Materials and Experience at the end of a wave. After you gained the Materials and XP, your harvesting stat increases by 5% rounded up. (So if you have 5 harvest it becomes 6, and it takes 21 for getting +2 harvesting at the end of each wave).

If Harvesting is negative, you lose -x Materials and XP at the end of a wave. You cannot lose a level from this XP loss. While your harvesting stat is negative, there is no 5% interest.

There are several ways to increase this 5% Increment. The item Crown.png Crown increases the interest to a total of 13%. Farmer.png Farmer has +3% interest on harvesting (so 8%), and can reach 16% with crown. Entrepreneur.png Entrepreneur has a 50% modifier on all harvesting stat modifications. This includes the harvesting stats gained from the 5% interest.

When evaluating whether or not a Harvesting item will pay for itself, don't forget to account for the extra XP you gain.

In Endless Mode the 5% increment and any increases like the one from Crown or Farmer stops functioning. Instead, you lose 10% of your harvesting at the end of each wave. So even a Farmer with Crown will still lose 10% once they get to Wave 21 or higher.



These items increase your Harvesting.

Due to Item Tags, the Character(s) Entrepreneur.png Entrepreneur, Farmer.png Farmer have a higher chance to find these items in the Shop.

Formulas & Values

These tables show how harvesting grows with each wave for default, farmer, and entrepreneur. All of them are shown with and without crown. Default and Entrepreneur are shown starting with a tier 1 +5 harvesting upgrade. Farmer is shown with its starting +20 harvesting.

You can download the source Google Sheet and play around with the numbers.

The Wave column refers to when you get the harvesting. So wave 1 means you pick up the harvest upgrade at the end of wave 1. Current Harvesting shows the harvesting stat as it increases with each wave. Gained Total shows how many Materials and XP have been accumulated over the waves.
