Where to get Shield Flowers & Sword Flowers (RF4) – FandomSpot

To get a Plant Sword and Magic Plant Shield, you must grow a dungeon seed into a field dungeon.

After defeating the boss in the Field Dungeon, you will be rewarded with a Sword Seed or Shield Seed, which can be grown into a Plant Sword or Magic Plant Shield.

Plant Swords and Shields are items you need to complete the Harvest a Swordflower! quest. and “Harvest a Shield Flower!”

These are weapons that you can grow yourself on your farm instead of using the forge.

And these weapons also mimic the stats of every random weapon or shield in the game.

How to get a dungeon seed

In order to get the seeds to grow the Plant Sword and Magic Plant Shield, you must first obtain a dungeon seed.

This can be found in Demon’s Den, located in Sercerezo Hill.

Step 1: Get to the Demon’s Lair

To reach Demon’s Den you have to go to the Sercerezo Hill mushroom area, which is located below Daily Hill.

The path to the Demon Cave is blocked by mushrooms.

You cannot normally pass these mushrooms. However, if you go to the area between the 1st and 5th of a season, the mushrooms will be removed – and you can get to the Demon Lair.

Once you’ve unlocked the Demon Lair, you can always take the airship there.

Step 2: Defeating the Demon Lair

Once inside the cave, you’ll be presented with a few questions to answer.

Answering them correctly will take you to the boss. If you don’t, you’ll be dropped into a pit full of monsters.

The signs will ask you strange questions:

  • First if you are female
  • Second, if you are good at cooking
  • And third, if you are a beauty

Whether you play as a male or female character, you will Always jump into the left hole for each of these answers.

Jumping into the correct pit will take you to a dead end full of monsters, and you’ll need to use your teleportation spell to get out.

Once you answer all the questions correctly, you will get to the final room where you go upstairs to fight the raccoon boss Magnuto.

After defeating him, you will be rewarded with a Dungeon Seed.

Get the Sword/Shield seed

Now that you have obtained a dungeon seed, you can proceed to the next step.

Let’s break down this process as well:

Step 1: Grow a field dungeon

Once you’ve successfully obtained a dungeon seed, now you need to grow it!

Dungeon seeds are planted on your farmland and grow in 18 days.

This process can be sped up by using Formula A, B, or C on your farmland. These items will speed up the growth process of each crop.

Formula A, B and C can be made with a chemistry set. These formulas can also be purchased from Carnation.

Type/Quality ingredients required Required level growth rate
Formula A Withered grass, blue grass, black grass level 29 +0.4x growth
Formula B Yellow grass, pink cat, 4-leaf clover Level 41 +1.0x growth
Formula C White Grass, Fire Flower, Corn Level 72 +2.0x growth

After the dungeon seed is fully grown, it becomes a field dungeon.

This will have a cavernous appearance and if you interact with it you will be able to enter the dungeon.

How to beat the Field Dungeon

In the Field Dungeon you will find a maze.

This maze contains chests containing rare items, as well as weapons and armor that Bado may not sell in his shop.

After completing each level, there is a mini-boss that you must defeat to advance to the next level. The final level is themed for a specific season, and when you get to the end you will face a boss called the Greater Demon.

After defeating this Greator Demon, it will drop a Sword Seed or Shield Seed.

Then you can exit the Field Dungeon and plant your seed.

Tip: You can always re-enter this field dungeon to repeatedly defeat the Great Demon to get more seeds. The dungeon resets every time you exit it.

Growing the Sword/Shield Flower

Now that you have the seed, it’s time to plant it!

The sword flower and/or shield flower grows in 12 days.

The interesting thing about this plant is that the better your weapon is cared for, the better it will be. And there are six soil qualities that affect the growth of your plant:

  • Health
  • defense
  • growth
  • quality
  • number
  • size

Health affects the quality of the soil – the better your health, the longer your plant will live. When the soil health reaches zero, the plant dies. Some ways to increase this stat are by planting withered grass, corn, and 4-leaf clover on the ground.

defense affects how resilient a plant is to typhoons. If you have high defense, a crop will not be killed during a typhoon. Wettable powder increases your defense level.

growth affects the speed at which a plant grows. At 2.0x the plant grows 2x faster and a plant that takes 12 days to grow takes 6. Formulas increase your growth level.

quality affects the level of your plant. The higher the quality, the faster it will level up. Higher tier plants sell for more and can increase stats. This is amplified by fertilizer.

number is how many crops you will reap. This varies from harvest to harvest. Arthur’s Harvest Report will show which crops will have a bumper harvest and which will have a poor harvest.

size what causes a crop to grow large to make a huge crop or what causes a plant to grow smaller. You can use Gigantizer to enlarge it and Minimizer to shrink it.

Once your plant has grown, you can harvest it to get your Plant Sword or Plant Magic Shield.

You can harvest this immediately if you wish. However, the longer you let the plant grow (and the bigger the harvest), the more likely it is to have better stats.

Here’s a little test I made for this guide:

I let one shield flower grow for 2 weeks and picked the other as soon as it bloomed.

The shield flower I let grow for two weeks had the stats of an Elemental Shield with 610 Defense and 580 Magic Defense.

The shield flower that i picked as soon as it blooms had the stats of a Platinum Shield with 150 Defense and 150 Magic Defense.

The same goes for the plant swords. The longer you leave it, the more likely it is to have better stats.

Other ways to get sword/shield seeds

Maybe you have a while before the path to the Demon Lair opens, or maybe you don’t want to farm a field dungeon.

Whatever the case, there are actually other ways to get your seed!

Most bosses have a small chance to drop a Sword Seed or Shield Seed when defeated.

However, some bosses are guaranteed to drop a Sword Seed or a Shield Seed.

You can find these on the Floating Empirethe last dungeon in the second arc of the game.

There are three bosses that are 100% guaranteed to drop a Sword Seed or Shield Seed in the Floating Empire. These are:

boss name map location
The Six Tank
Six Tank / RF4 map location

The armored tank +
Map location of Armored Tank + / RF4

The Six Golem

Note that all three of these bosses drop a Sword/Shield seed, but you won’t be able to fight them again in the same day.

The good news is that these bosses will respawn every day and you can fight them again to get another seed.
