Hello everyone! I have seen some of your requests for posts, and they’ve been about future content updates. Today, I will present information about the larder changes in 3.0 and the new Vocation Badge quests.
In 3.0, the recipes (in KR) for larders have changed. The infographic below shows the changes:
Crafting of the larder will be the same, except for the “Shiny Seed”, an Arcane-grade drop from farming crops. On KR Anthalon sever, these seeds go for about 6-7g. There is also a 1 gold crafting fee and it requires a maximum of 65 labor points to craft.
The larder pack materials have changed though. All have increased in materials needed, and the cheese and honey packs require a minimum Commerce proficiency to put down the larder and sell.
Cheese will now require: 50 Milk, 50 Lemons, and a minimum of 10,000 Commerce proficiency.
Salve will now require: 50 Ginseng, 35 Olives, but no minimum Commerce proficiency.
Honey will now require: 4 Honey, 20 Hay, a minimum of 20,000 Commerce proficiency.
I believe that with these changes, the pack values will increase by a considerable amount. The value of the larder itself has increased, and the increased quantity of materials will increase the value of the pack.
Vocation Quests/Family Changes
In 3.0, there will be several new quests being added, and some quests being modified to give Vocation Badges.
With the improved family feature, now you can unlock new quests that give vocation and complete them to get Vocation Badges and EXP for your family level.
- Regional Housing Improvements – For this quest, you can complete a quest relating to the NPC mansion in a zone. This mansion, once upgraded (although it goes through a cycle; not sure how long that it) gives a variety of materials and services. On the side of the mansion is a little work station area. You will need “certificates” to turn in to help upgrade the mansion. I believe completing this quest will suffice for the Family Daily quest. This gives 100 Family EXP and 1,500 Vocation Badges.
- “Happy Life” Quests – For these quests, you will have to work together to complete a goal. Such things include Farming, Gathering, Logging, Husbandry and Cooking. You will need several people in your family to work together to accomplish the task.

There is an NPC in front of the NPC Mansion that you can speak to for obtaining and completing the quest. I assume that you will have to have three people talk to the NPC in order to complete it. This gives 100 Family EXP and 1,500 Vocation Badges.
- Blue Salt Delivery – This quest requires you to deliver a trade pack from your continent’s Blue Salt hub (Windshade in Nuia, Anvilton in Haranya) and deliver it to any safe zone on your continent. On the KR Wiki, it says something about being a timed quest… Or a quest being able to be done at certain times.

This quests gives 100 Family EXP and 1,500 Vocation Badges.
- Family Fishing – With your family, go sport fishing in a freshwater area. You must catch a big fish (Gargantuan?) to complete this quest. However, knowing that you can get a Gargantuan easily from freshwater fishing, I’m sure they’re going to add a different kind of fish that will be waiting to be caught once your family quest is active. This gives 100 Family EXP and 1,500 Vocation Badges.
In addition to those family quests, the current Merit Quest Daily that requires you to use some amount of labor in a proficiency will be changed to include vocation badges, ranging from 300 to 750 Vocation Badges (depending on what the quest asks for).
You can view the Merit Quests and Vocation Badge amounts on this spreadsheet I made here.
Alongside with the Family and Merit Dailies are the upgraded house dailies.
Farmer’s Workstations now also provide 750 Vocation Badges with the daily quests you can do at it.
Upgraded homes all receive daily letters from the NPC mansion. These require you to collect items and deliver it. These give 750 Vocation Badges. There are 5 different ones. Not sure if you only get one a day or if you can get all 5.
Upgraded homes also have a 500 Vocation Badge reward with their daily quests from their house’s quest jar.
