ArcheAge Scarecrow

Scarecrow is a very important part of crafting system in ArcheAge and every player must know about this object because of its useful features. Scarecrow in ArcheAge protects your property and crops from being stolen by other players.

How to get scarecrow?
You will get a small one after completing special quest in a starting zone. The quest is simple and will require several minutes to be completed. After this quest is finished you will get a small Scarecrow and a quest for getting the large one. This quest is much more difficult and will require to grow special plants, transport goods to other locations, get a donkey for this and even swim to other continent with your goods on a ship. After this difficult quest is finished you will get special item. You need to break your small scarecrow and use its recipe to craft large scarecrow.

How to use?
After you received a Scarecrow blueprint, use it in any territory available for construction. It will require money and labor power:

Small: Lumber pack that can be obtained from quest, 2 gold coins and 25 labor points.
Large: Big Lumber pack (crafted from 100 lumber packs) and 3 Gold coins.

Note: that territory doesn’t get protection after you use the blueprint. When you use the blueprint you pay tax and the territory will be booked for your character for a week. The protection will be added only after you deliver required resources and complete construction.

A player has to pay tax for keeping his scarecrow on a specific place. The taxes are paid on a weekly basis in advance. If you don’t pay the scarecrow will be destroyed and the blueprint will be sent to the owner. All property located on the territory will lose protection.

It’s easy to destroy your scarecrow. You just need to click a special button in the settings section of the farm. After it is destroyed you will get the blueprint by in-game post. All materials you spent for building it will not be returned. The blueprint can be used again in any other place if you wish.
