The Scroll of Life requires a Farming level of 25 and a Dungeoneering level of 25 to use. Due to the rate at which tokens are received, a player will have to reach at least level 49 Dungeoneering before he or she has earned enough tokens to buy the scroll.
Once used, the scroll will disappear, giving the player the following permanent effect: when harvesting non-tree non-flower patches (including dead ones), the player will have a 10% chance of receiving seeds back. There is also a 5% chance of getting a seed back from a dead tree or stump. NOTE: To get a seed back from a fruit tree stump you will have to manually use a spade from your inventory on the stump, after chopping the tree down. Seeds returned from dead herb patches will be random, but seeds returned from a live herb patch will be the same type as the herb being harvested. The Scroll of Life works on all patches within the Herblore Habitat. Special patches, however, (including Spirit trees and Calquat trees) do not give replacement seeds.
If players pay a farmer to dig up a tree for them, they still have the chance to get their seed returned, despite the game guide saying that it is impossible. Upon receiving a seed back after having a farmer dig up the tree, players will receive the message: "As the farmer chops the tree down, you spot a seed in the leftovers." Paying farmers to look after crops does not affect the chances of receiving seeds.
When read, the player will be given the message "The secret is yours! You read the scroll and unlock the long lost technique of regaining seeds from dead farming patches."
- Soon after the token cost changes in the Adventurer's log when the reward was bought it said, "I have bought the Farming Conservation ability for 65,000 dungeoneering tokens." while the current value is 10,000 tokens. This was fixed with an update on 25 May 2010.
- A player who has already read a Scroll of Life and attempts to purchase another will receive a message which reads "You've already unlocked that ability." Therefore a player cannot receive another Scroll of Life after having read one, and will not have any tokens deducted for an attempted second purchase. However, multiple scrolls may be bought as long as the ability hasn't been unlocked.
- When using the Items kept on death screen, it says that the scroll has a value of 25,000 coins.
- Even Gout Tubers can be obtained by this, since they are technically a seed used to plant the gout tuber herb.
