Queens Conservatory pets

Reading through this makes my head hurt.

What I gather is that you have to unlock the seed that is fed by 3 catalyst plots. Which would be Tier 4. And it's a smallchance you will get a pet.

Am I correct on this or have I missed something? Seems like this will take a long time.

FWIW, I have looted 2 Wildseed Root Grain from a Wish Cricket in Ardenweald. It shows up as a treasure. He hops around and you have to click on him.

You only need Tier 2 Queen's Conservatory. The main thing is that you need two dirt piles to make 2 Root Grain touch at least 1 pod. This creates a Wildseed that will yield a chest that drops an Artisan Satchel + a chance at the pet (pet drops from the chest, not the satchel). I believe only chests that contain Artisan Satchels (rare quality bag) or higher have this additional drop chance, but someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I've added a TL;DR to my Queen's Conservatory blog post:
TL;DR -
1. Upgrade Conservatory to Tier 2. (if you use your Spirits prior to this is up to you, but not worth it IMO)
2. Get 3 Wildseed Root Grain.
3. Place the 3 Wildseed Root Grain in dirt piles so that all three are touching 2 pods. (see image of Conservatory layout, where the #4 is the area you're targeting, so those 3 connecting dirt piles + 2 pods)
4. Make sure the 2 pods have 2 Wildseed Root Grain buffs each. (can click on them to check)
5. Insert the Spirit of your choice into each pod. (each category of Spirit has 2 possible pets each, Prideful = Venthyr-themed pets for example)
6. Wait for however many days for your Wildseed to mature. (can click on the pod to check its buff for time left)
7. Open the mature Wildseed, talk to the Spirit who will spawn a chest. Pet drops from the chest and NOT the Artisan Satchel that also appears in the chest.
8. Repeat until you get all the pets! Good Luck!
With a Tier 2 Conservatory, you'll have an extra pod to do with as you please. You could plant seeds to get more Wildseed Root Grain, or you could use other Spirits. Note that since there is only ONE connecting dirt mound to the extra pod, you'll only be able to feed it one buff. This means it will likely not yield any pets.

Instead, you could talk to Seed Merchant Daybreak, buy Wildroot Root Grain Seeds, use either a Temporal Leaves or Wild Nightbloom on the one dirt pile, and then insert your seed into the linked pod. I mean, why not right? Going to need a decent number of Root Grain for those pets, might as well grow and harvest it yourself ;)

Last thing to note, when I tested on Beta you need to plant the Root Grain *first* and foremost otherwise the pod won't recognize the buffs. I don't know if that's changed or fixed, but I use the dirt mounds first before inserting Spirits into pods, just to be sure.

Thanks for the info. I had looked at your blog but did not see this. You are simply *the best*. I do appreciate all that you do.

Wish Cricket has dropped root grains for me and the daily calling for Torghast dropped 3 :) So don't skip it!

Nice explanation thank you.

I assume that Root Grain does not drop until you upgraded the garden to tier 2?

Yea, at Tier 2 Conservatory, there will be a daily quest that can reward Root Grain. A vendor will also unlock that sells seeds to grow your own Root Grain. You'll also start seeing Root Grain as a possible drop from Ardenweald treasures, WQs, Callings, etc.

It all kicks off at Tier 2, and makes me kind of wonder what the point of Tier 1 is :lol:
