Thank you Blizzard, for bringing life back into the dailies! I've thouroughly enjoyed the rep rewards from the Tillers, Cloud Serpent faction...even a rep faction for Nat Pagle (gotta say, I didn't see that one coming!). Since I do little raiding, Cata sort of fell on its face for me.Great job!I totally agree, I like the story progression of the Golden Lotus dailies despite not actually being a huge fan of the grind.I really like the Tillers, and for the guy earlier who complained it was more of a social media game than an RPG..WHAT?How much more role playing could you get than to buy seeds, cultivate them and use them to cook with?It might not be for everyone, but certainly the Anglers and Tillers have breathed knew life into otherwise mundane cooking and fishing.
/yawn Wake me up when the panda go home.
I dont think of this as farmville so much (yes due to the quests) as I like to think of it has Harvest Moon which has been around longer than farmville, pokemon and wow.
Question: I finally got a full crop of the current up-to-date crop condition effects; where would be a good place to submit a screenshot?
"However, it seems his predictions are a bit off as the mentioned crops yield nothing special."Actually, if you plant the crop he predicts as doing well, when you harvest said crop, you'll receive 2 extra of the crop. So if you plant all 16 of that crop, you'd end up with an extra 32, which isn't bad at all. If you're simply after Ironpaw Tokens, paying attention the crop predictions will get you there faster (if you're turning in crops for Bundle of Groceries).
Unfortunately, it seems Blizzard no longer care for the RPG in MMORPG.Why cater to your typical RPG player when you can create a social media level "game" with the immersion level of a Facebook app that will attract 1000 times more people than the originally intended demographic?I seriously disagree there; I've played more then a few RPG's that had a farm aspect as part of them(Wild ARMs and the gardens for example). Or, as most people have been saying, the Farms in WoW feel more like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing when it comes down to it.But don't forget, that just like Pet Battles, it's an optional part of the game: So if farming is really out of place for your character in the personal RP portion of it's existence......Don't do the Farming. Issue solved.Besides, you are not thinking outside the box. What better way for a Forsaken of such persuasion to experiment with various virulent strains of toxic plasmids and bacteria and amoeba and viri and other microorganisms, that to grow their very own petri dish, where they can see the results growing and maturing before their very eyes. They can create ways to secretly toxify food sources while the appearances remain as though they are fresh and edible. Think of the magnificent triumph for the Forsaken, as the world's food supply is infected and the Azeroth's races brought low and into submission! Granted its all RPG in your head, but there you go.
This is not a "Farmville" tribute it is a "Harvest Moon" tribute, much older than farmville. I love it! Harvest Moon was one of the first of it's kind I ever played and I own them all. I love the whole gift giving and all the critters I have built up. I finished up best friends with the last 3 tillers today and I have enjoyed every minute of this grind (and I hate rep grind) Blizzard has made rep grinding not so tedious since this Xpac. I look forward to doing dailies now. But I have one question, it gives an option to have people work on your farm once you have become best friends. Can you have everyone there all at once or just one at a time? Right now Ella hangs out there and Jogu lives at my pond. Just curious.
I don't think the Votes questline is based off Tillers reputations. To start, I got Mung-Mung's vote quest before I got Fung's vote quest. And, as soon as I turned in Fung's quest, I got Nana's, at 8100~ reptuation.
It's pretty funny how you can spot all the children in these comments by seeing who associates it with Farmville rather than Harvest Moon or the many other RPGs with some kind of farming minigame in. Now we're getting the same again with the younger players associating the Garrison feature of WoD with a Facebook game rather than games like Suikoden. Feels like someone watching a Nirvana tribute band and saying "these guys are copying Nickelback!"
The guide needs a correction about Jogu the Drunk's predictions - when harvested after Jogu's 4 am reset, crop yield will be 40% on predicted plantings. Hardly 'the mentioned crops yield nothing special'.
Even the crafting mats some plants give you will be a token amount, so there's no point grinding for leather/herbs/cloth through farming. It'd take you forever.Yes. But slow and steady wins the race. I can do a small amount of farming this way on several toons during the week when I don't have much time to play, and use the mats for crafting on the weekends. It takes me about 4 minutes a day per toon to harvest, till, and replant. Especially for cloth it's faster than farming humanoid NPCs.
