As soon as you land on Azoria, you’ll begin wondering how to get rid of thorns in Fae Farm. The joyful island is full of obstacles attempting to slow down your progress. The thorns will crop up as you explore, stopping you from reaching a few cool locations. But you won’t have to wait too long to move them.

Fae Farm thorns aren’t the only obstacle you’ll face, but they are one of the easiest to remove. Rather than fully block your way to a destination, they simply lengthen a route or completely overwhelm additional potential farming space. By following a specific path, you’ll quickly learn how to remove them.
