So, I have read the wiki, but I still have questions about the game that I hope y'all can answer. I started just over a week ago. I asked several other questions to random, helpful folk in the game, but I thought I would use this forum.
  1. So, other than opening up new animal pen slots, allowing for higher level animals, and affecting the shopping list, what does Ranching level do past lvl 40? I have Ranching level 40+, so I have the max 6 free pen slots. Does my Ranching level affect the animals? It is the animal level that determines the tier of the materials produced, correct? I don't mind extra levels, but I was curious. I guess I get get achievements for it.
  2. Which buffs persist over logout? Potions, food, herbs, village insight, bounty,...
  3. I have gotten armor drops that have two of the same rune, eg. two Phoenix Strike+ runes. Does the item get twice the effect from the two runes? Or, does it just get one rune's effect? I cannot gnogment a rune twice onto an item.
  4. Does gear's Power Rating have an effect on my character, or it just a guide to how good that gear item is? If it has an effect, what would that be?
  5. Is it better to use a gear item with better runes/stats/enchantments or better Power Rating? So, an extra 4 armor or +20 Power Rating?
  6. So, I got the Gnome Jumping Boots from the daily rewards and used them to get the enchantment. Do I need to keep the boots or can I sell/delete them? I do know that I have to keep the crafting necklaces since they are a required ingredient for the next rank of necklace.
  7. When I finish the lvl 40 craft mastery quests, I will an extra mastery star for non-cooking gear items I craft. If I already have 5 stars in that recipe, what will the 6th star do?

Nothing, although I believe animals level a bit faster (but I am not 100% positive on that).

Everything with a timer. Stuff that has charges (like clockwork harvesters) remain until used. This does not apply to charges from combat afaik (but not something I actively paid attention to either)

I have gotten armor drops that have two of the same rune, eg. two Phoenix Strike+ runes. Does the item get twice the effect from the two runes? Or, does it just get one rune's effect? I cannot gnogment a rune twice onto an item.
You cannot gnogment two of the same rune onto an item. It will automatically pick the strongest one, and you can swap them, but not both.

Does gear's Power Rating have an effect on my character, or it just a guide to how good that gear item is? If it has an effect, what would that be?
It does nothing. It is a general indication of how good a piece of gear is. It does not take into account how well it will work with your other items, and if you have basic understanding of the stats themselves, that is a better thing to look at.

So, I got the Gnome Jumping Boots from the daily rewards and used them to get the enchantment. Do I need to keep the boots or can I sell/delete them? I do know that I have to keep the crafting necklaces since they are a required ingredient for the next rank of necklace.
Everything with an enchantment will be a husk only after equip. You can check this by hoovering over the item after that and it will show to be empty (no runes left). Only the crafted jewelry has to be kept until the highest tier, all other items can be trashed.

When I finish the lvl 40 craft mastery quests, I will an extra mastery star for non-cooking gear items I craft. If I already have 5 stars in that recipe, what will the 6th star do?
You mean the armor and weapon masteries?
The extra star causes you to start 1 star higher and allows the chance to craft epic once the 5th star is reached (or 6th, if you always keep counting 1 star higher)

Thanks, Ekimie! Such nice people in this game.

Oh, new question. Is there a way to send a Friend Request to someone that you do not have selected in front of you?

You can use a chat command "/friend add playername" without the quotes. Also, if they have said something in chat, you can right click (PC) or long press (mobile) on their name in chat and select the friend request option.

There were a few questions I skipped though cause I didn't know the answer so maybe someone else can look at those

Your Ranching level only indirectly affects the animals in that at every 5 levels, (6, 11, 16, 21, ...) you will add a new food item for sheep and boars. If you have 4+ animals, you can exceed your Gardening level's ability to grow the requested crops. The higher-level food items give more XP to both you and your animals and better happiness boosts. You also will start getting requests for things like the various fruits, mushrooms, and beetles that can only be found in higher-level zones but that takes a while. There is an end-game quest that rewards you for reaching level 95 in Ranching and Gardening.

I have gotten armor drops that have two of the same rune, eg. two Phoenix Strike+ runes. Does the item get twice the effect from the two runes? Or, does it just get one rune's effect? I cannot gnogment a rune twice onto an item.
If you have gotten any drop that has 2 of the same rune, it’s a bug.

What I suspect (because it’s poorly documented and you have to make this mistake to even ask the question) is that you had a weapon drop and it had a round Phoenix Strike feat (feat is just another word for “the active runes that you can put on your quickbar”) and a square Phoenix Strike+ augmentation rune (which augments the Phoenix Strike feat, but isn’t actually the feat and can’t go on your quickbar… Phoenix Strike+ also doesn’t give any benefit unless you use Phoenix Strike.)

Does gear's Power Rating have an effect on my character, or it just a guide to how good that gear item is? If it has an effect, what would that be?
A quick rule of-thumb is “item level = power level / 10”. So, if that item has 890 power then it is really good if you’re equipping it well below 89 and increasingly bad the higher you level beyond 89.

Is it better to use a gear item with better runes/stats/enchantments or better Power Rating? So, an extra 4 armor or +20 Power Rating?
It is always better to use the best version of each feat (they’re not all the same!).
As for stats… it’s (almost) always better to have an item that gives you the stats you want, even if they provides fewer total stat points.

So, I got the Gnome Jumping Boots from the daily rewards and used them to get the enchantment. Do I need to keep the boots or can I sell/delete them? I do know that I have to keep the crafting necklaces since they are a required ingredient for the next rank of necklace.
You can keep account bound items and pass them around so that each of your characters has that item’s appearance in their wardrobe… but yeah, once the enchantment is lifted off the item, it’s just a wardrobe husk.

Also, don’t upgrade your crafting tools beyond 40 until you’ve completed each mastery or you’ll have to buy one and upgrade it before you can complete the quest.

When I finish the lvl 40 craft mastery quests, I will an extra mastery star for non-cooking gear items I craft. If I already have 5 stars in that recipe, what will the 6th star do?
Um, no. The mastery quests reward you with items that have a 50% xp enchantment.

As a completely-whole-‘nother-separate-thing, players who have the armorcrafting specialization will craft armor items whose stats are equivalent to an item with one additional star… on armor items only. So, you can craft an epic and enhance it to legendary. (Enhancing an item 5x raises the item’s stats by 1.5 levels, but doesn’t raise the level you need to be to equip the item… hint: enhance whatever you equip). It’s not for ‘non-cooking’ stuff because you don’t get a bonus to crafted trinkets nor shields/weapons.

Note: Some recipes can create natural legendaries (and enhanced further)… but those are not something you can create until level cap, and you don’t need armorcraft specialization to craft them.

weapon master specialization does the same thing for weapons, and I believe also shields, that armor master specialization does for armor. My weaponcrafting specialization crafts weapon items with stats equivalent to an item with one additional star (ie I have a chance to craft a naturally epic weapon that can be enhanced to legendary)

I believe one of us has it wrong. You don’t get an ‘extra star’ (with weaponmaster). Weaponmaster let’s you craft a weapon with stats/glyphs that players without specialization cannot. Anything ‘extra’ you’re seeing is because you’re crafting blight weps and those weps get extra stat points, regardless of specialization.

Actually, I think your both right, but talking at slight cross purposes. Both weapon and armour spec give give you the ability to make gear as if you were able to already craft the next better recipe, but only as far as those recipes go. Even a specialist can only create 5 star gear at best (though with the random chance of epic instead of rare, of course). On the other hand, if you have the specialisation, when you make a recipe for the first time, it will already be one star (i.e. uncommon) and at 20 crafts you will have reached the maximum 5 stars, whereas you would normally still be at just 4.

I may be wrong, but I think you still only get the chance of epic after 30, though. Maybe I'm just unlucky, but I don't think I've ever got an epic before making 30 lesser recipes.

I don’t think there is any confusion. Armorcrafters get a star, weaponcrafters can get specific stats (but not additional stats), and blight stuff has its own rules.
