How to Play Plant vs Undead?
Starting Your Farming Journey
There are several steps to complete before you begin your farming journey in Plant vs Undead.
Step 1: Acquire Five PVU Tokens
The first objective for Plant vs Undead players is to acquire five PVU tokens. You can complete this step by using PancakeSwap.
Step 2: Add Some BNB Tokens
Step 3: Plant vs Undead Login
Although you will see a timer as to when you can play, it may not match your time zone or preferences. Although the developers are working on various improvements, that is the downside to the game in its current form.
Once you can enter the game, the real fun begins!
Step 4: From PVU To Light Energy
The five PVU - or more - you obtained earlier need to be converted to Light Energy (LE). All tools and seeds in the Farm Mode require LE, rather than PVU, to be purchase.
Step 5: Acquire Free Land Plots
All Plant vs Undead players receive free plots. There is one Mother Tree and five plant slots. Your objective is to plant Sunflowers.
Claiming the Land is done by using the "Land" tab in the Farm section.
Step 6. Acquire Some Tools
Visit the Shop - the pink button on the left of the screen - to start buying farming tools.
All tools cost small amounts of LE, so plan your purchases carefully.
Make sure to click the buy button only once, even if nothing seems to happen right away. The server may experience a minor lag, therefore, clicking the button multiple times will result in multiple purchases.
Step 7: Get Sunflower Seeds
In the Shop section, you will see a "Sunflower" tab. Click it to purchase sunflower seeds.
Buying a Sunflower Sapling for 100 LE will net you 250 LE after three days. The Sunflower Mama costs 200 LE but rewards 850 LE after six days. Gambling with the Sun Box is an option, as it offers some fascinating rewards:
- A 30% chance to receive 100x water and 20x scarecrows
- A 30% chance to receive 2x small pots
- A 30% chance to receive 1x Sunflower Sapling
- A 9.9% chance to receive 1x Sunflower Mama
- A 0.1% chance to receive 1x seed
Whether those odds are worth the gamble is a personal decision.
Step 8: Start Planting and Watering Sunflowers
After buying seeds and watering tools, we can move on to planting sunflowers!
Navigate to the Land tab, select an available plot. Go to the sunflower tab and select your preferred plant.
Afterward, navigate to the farm tab where you will find a "add pot to start farming" option.
Click the plant slot and hit the "Use" button.
Step 9: Explore Other Farms
As part of the daily quest, you can tend other players' plants. Your sunflowers will take a few days to mature before LE can be harvested.
Watering a plant can yield a Sunflower Sapling, although the chances are rather low:
- If the water count ranges between 0–19, there is a 10% chance to get 1x Sunflower Sapling.
- If the water count ranges between 20–39, there is a 9% chance to get 1x Sunflower Sapling.
- If the water count ranges between 40–59, there is an 8% chance to get 1x Sunflower Sapling.
- If the water count ranges between 60–79, there is a 7% chance to get 1x Sunflower Sapling.
- If the water count ranges between 80–99, there is a 6% chance to get 1x Sunflower Sapling.
- If the water count ranges between 100 or higher, there will never be a Sapling drop.
Click on the Plant slot to water plants and hit the "Use" button next to the watering can icon.
You can water other players' plants up to 15 times per day for a 50 LE reward and scare off crows a maximum of five times a day.
Step 10: The LE Harvesting
After a few days have passed and sunflowers have matured, you can harvest Light Energy.
Navigate to your farm and harvest sunflowers one by one, or use the "Harvest All" button on the right.
After collecting LE, you can "Remove" the land plot and repeat the cycle with a different plant.
