Notes[ | ]

  • While in theory your Harvesting Speed should be 150% at max level, in practice the harvesting speed bonus varies depending on what you are harvesting. Aditionally, in Trees and Armchairs the harvesting speed bonus per level is inconsistent and your harvesting speed becomes even faster than it should be (Detailed timings are listed above). It is unknown whether it's an intended mechanic, or a bug.
  • At Lumberjack levels 0-2, Inmates harvest chests faster than trees. Beyond level 3, inmates harvest trees faster than chests.
