Re: [MoP] How was it?

You get a quest to prepare you for farming, then a daily planting certain type of crop and then getting it the next day, so far I've done just one daily, I think the rest unlock at 90 or something (the farmer guy has a gray ! mark)

Where do you plant it? Is it phased or something?

Here is a good article I found on the Tillers farm.

»www.elsanglin.com/tillers_farming.html

The Tillers are Pandaria's agricultural faction. Their main settlement is Hafhill in the Valley of the Four Winds, although many of their members live in the fields north-west of Halfhill.

There are 3 sets of activities related to the Tillers:

Sunsong Ranch, a farm which you gradually improve. On this farm you can grow your own crops. The quests associated with Sunsong Ranch grant reputation with the Tillers, but the main benefit of Sunsong Ranch is the ability to grow crops, including vegetables, which are used in cooking. This requires level 85.
Friendship with up to 10 specific members of the Tillers. Friendship with individual Tillers members is tracked separately from the faction as a whole. Friendship can be gained from delivering each person's favorite cooked dishes (5 of the dish, once per day), digging up rare gift items and delivering them to an appropriate friend (no limits, but the items may be hard to find), or in some cases completing their daily, world-drop or rank-triggered quests. These reward points of friendship, but most do not reward Tillers reputation. These require level 90.
Daily quests, all starting in Halfhill. They reward reputation with both the Tillers and (where appropriate) the friend that ends the quest. These quests require level 90.

This guide is focused on the first activity, Sunsong Ranch, but also summarises the other sources of reputation, since reputation is important for developing your farm: Events triggered by higher Tillers reputation unlock extra soil patches on the Ranch, while many friends make cosmetic improvements to Sunsong Ranch, such as adding livestock or furnishing the farm's hut.

Why farm?

Farming is the main source of vegetables, which are used to cook most Pandaren dishes. Vegetables can be traded.
Materials used in other manufacturing professions can be grown, including Mote of Harmony.
A chance to grow a Terrible Turnip minipet.
Your farm can be improved visually, including a small home of your own.
Sunsong Ranch unlocks extra Tillers reputation, whose rewards include Riding Goats.
Farming is surprisingly fun! And it doesn't take much time each day.

Interesting fact after reading thru the whole article. Vegetables are not the only thing that can grow from seed...

Special Crop
Enigma Seed Random herb plant, as normally found in Pandaria 1g Revered
Magebulb Seed 3-5 Spirit Dust, rarely Mysterious Essence
Raptorleaf Seed 1 Exotic Leather, rarely Plump Intestines (which contains money)
Snakeroot Seed 2-4 Ghost Iron Ore, rarely other Pandarian ores, eg White Trillium Ore
Windshear Cactus Seed 1-3 Windwool Cloth
Songbell Seed 1 Mote of Harmony

Nice that they spawn something else, sadly only once per day, 1 mote is like nothing, would be more interested if it was an entire spirit of harmony..

I'm planting carrots on all 4 spots, so I can cook my Agility food (without going endlesly killing mobs for a chance of a carrot to drop or spending the tokens on them)

Any thoughts on leveling cooking? Are they expecting us to use token primarily for mats? I used up all my tokens last night leveling my stam food up. I was just hoping I didn't really mess up by using them all.

takes very little time. Fly out to halfhill, plant seeds, remove any pests from the plant, then fly away to return the next day.

IDK if the watering can do anything at all for the plants, there's no reaction when I pour it on them... LOL (just really funny because from your angle it looks like your peeing on them)

This is generally the sort of thing casuals get into. Log on for 10min or so, knock out a few dailies, chat up the guild, log off. Raiders tend to only log on for raid nights, then go MIA for the week, or just play the AH for mats/raid prep.

It's not the only way to get food. There's the good-ol' kill stuff for drops or go fishing routes still.

whew. i'm saying i like the old way now but that's only because i haven't tried farmville yet.

i might end up thinking running a homestead might an easier route than fishing crap from pools...who knows.

does it require "every day" maintenance?

I don't think so. The crop is ready to pick the next day (so saith the NPC beside it). It would be interesting to see if you forget to come back to it that it rots, lol. I mean... that would be terrible.

I read somewhere that you dont have to comeback the next day. Also as you continue to farm you get more slots. Up to 16 slots and each slot can produce 5+ stuff.

Tip: Grown crops do not need to be harvested immediately: Unharvested crops remain in their grown state, even after several days.
