[MoP] A Farming we will go

Spent my evening getting my farms, have eight so far, should have ten this evening.

Loving the seed bags.

I've had the plowed rodents glitch a few times. You kill them and the ground still shows occupied, but you can't do anything to it. You have to leave for a bit and then come back and kill the rodent again.

The order thing looks to be a decent money makers 19G for planting and another 19G for picking and you can do two a day so almost 100G for farming.

Where do you get the quest to run the farm? My main is exalted and has the 16 plot farm, but I couldn't find out how or where the quest starts.

They hide it. Nana has it, it is hard to see because she's inside a building. The old woman in the house at the top of the hill. Same NPC that gives you the 100 year old water quest. You talk to her, talk to Yoon, turn in at her and you're done the farm is yours.

Definitely worth it from the mat collecting aspect. Once Revered you can plant any mat (enchanting mats, leathers, ores, windwool, motes of harmoney, etc). It's too quick and easy to not take advantage of it.

Yup. Anything you could get in a gathering profession plus the enchanting mats (essences and ethereal shards) and motes of harmony. If you are a raider, planting the enigma seeds for the flowers (including golden lotuses) is awesome so that you are always ready with flasks.

Last night I only got the "plant 8 of these" quest, when I turned it in it didn't get the follow up "harvest the 8, deliver 40 to this faction" quest, this was annoying because the first quest doesn't award the 19g anymore and you do spend some gold buying seeds.

I'm trying to get August exalted, only receiving about 800 rep from their quests a day is so frustrating, the 600 from the farming would help a lot and 600 from the daily heroic even more..

No need to apologize to me. I'm no better. I couldn't tell you the name of half of the spells I use in my main rotation on my main toon. I know what they do, where they are, and what they look like so I get by well enough. But I'd be the first one out of a wow trivia game of "name that spell' (or "name that anything" for that matter)

My farm is currently being use as a Mote factory. I am hoping to turn all those all into profit when I get the Blacksmithing recipes.

So lets say if one of my toons is exalted with tillers, can any of my toons use the farm? Or do they have to be exalted as well?

YOu'll need them to buy Blacksmithing recipes as well. At least the ones in the Vale. Klaxxi uses that kyparite for currency to get their recipes.

Nope. Each toon has their own farm. And progress independently of other toons. The only carry-over across toons would be the commendation. Once you got it on one toon, the rep buff would be in place for all toons (so you could get all of them to exalted quickly).

You can get exalted in about 3 days with the commendation

Be sure to cook the daily "gifts" for each NPC

Dark soil only advances each individual "friendlyness" not Tiller Rep.

Ah wasn't sure, as I didn't bother with dark soil till I was maxed on tiller rep, and as the food dailies gave both I figured the dark soil did too

Well, I have ten farms now and the last on on the server is at revered and will probably be owned by Monday. The

Yeah, the hot fix killed the double dip.

If you don't get the harvest quest after you plant you should get it the next day, at least that's what happened to me today.

I didn't have any more bugs on running the rodents over with the plow.

With the mat plants you get a random mat. They turned up the ore one, you used to get mainly ghost iron ore, now you get mainly the trillium. I've gotten quite a few golden lotus from the plants. The only one I really use is the ore since harvesting leather is easy and really a side effect of gathering meat for cooking.

All toons have to earn their own farm, but with the double rep you really blow through it. You have to buy and then USE the commendation. Don't be an idiot like me who bought it and just held it in my bag. I had six full farms before I found this out.

They fixed the "not getting the harvest quest", you suppose to get it, because it will take another day to complete it (unless you do it near server reset time), and nobody is that lucky to get 8 instant harvest (the most I've gotten is 2)

It's been a though choice, either get mats for your feasts or profs, or do the dailies for rep

With 10, soon to be 11, farms, I don't have many issues with what to plant. I've got four toons farming for rep and the rest farming for cooking mats at the moment.

Found out this morning you can't plant and harvest on the same day. For example if you need witchberries you can plant eight on one side and then harvest a set of eight from the other side to complete the second part of the quest.

I haven't had the issue with the rodents that were run over by the plow since the first day, so we'll call that fixed.

I have some toons that have the farm mailbox and some that don't. I don't know the rhyme or reason for it.

I have had the second part of the quest not pop up at the right time and picked items that didn't count towards the goal. Check the wagon for a blue !

Obviously there is some tweaking still to be done and they will get it where they want eventually.

The mailbox is from NPC rep, the mailbox is just renamed when you buy the farm.
