Devilstrand is a player-growable production crop with a low yield, and very long growing cycle. Can't be sown in hydroponics, and is immune to blight. Mature devilstrand yields 8 devilstrand.


Devilstrand has a base growing time of 22.5 days, needs a minimum soil fertility of 50%, and has a fertility sensitivity rating of 100%. Devilstrand can also only be sown by level 10 growers and above, and once the devilstrand research has been completed. The following table details how long it takes for devilstrand to grow in each growable ground type, factoring in the plant resting time and being in ideal growing conditions:

Ground Type Gravel Soil Rich Soil Hydroponics
Fertility (%) 70 100 140 230
Grow Time (days) 55.52 38.86 27.76 -
Base Yield/day[1] 0.14 0.21 0.29 -
  1. Per plant

Cotton has roughly 5.16x the yield per day of devilstrand in gravel; 4.57x the yield per day in soil; and 4.18x the yield per day in rich soil. This is due to cotton's lower fertility sensitivity compared to devilstrand.

Food Production

Devilstrand doesn't yield any human-edible products.

Unlike cloth dusters, you'll actually be better off selling devilstrand than devilstrand dusters. This is because cloth dusters have a higher work:ingredient value ratio compared to devilstrand dusters; a larger market value gain relative to the total value of the ingredients.

Generally, you can't generate a profit from devilstrand dusters unless you have at least a level 15 crafter doing the tailoring - and even then, cloth dusters would still be leaps and bounds better for economic purposes.
