I don’t know about you (my reader) but I’ve grown tired of doing dailies for certain factions. To me it was just redundant, time consuming and plain boring. So I guess many people complained via Blizzard forums and finally with patch 5.1 Blizzard added an ability for players to buy a farm! Yay! Of course many (and myself including) did not know where and how you’d buy the farm.
Personally, I was expecting to see a quest at farm to buy it but it wasn’t the case. After a little bit of research and help from good wow players, I was able to do just that – buy the farm.
First thing’s first : In order to buy the farm you have to :
- Be exalted with Tillers
- Have all slots at farm unlocked
- Then you fly to one of houses in up Halfhill at and you go inside the house and pick up a quest from Nana Madclaw she will start you on a quest called “Inherit the Earth” and then you’d need to fly back to your farm and back to Nana and you’ll be done – the farm will be yours.
At the farm you’ll be able to pick up quests from different factions (Golden Lotus, Shadow-Pan, Kallaxxi and a few others but you won’t be able to pick up quests from new factions which were introduced in patch 5.2).
So this will come down to – 1) Do I want to continue growing golden lotuses at my farm or 2) Do I want to grind that rep to buy cool scorpion and other tiger mounts….
The choice is yours. If you have alts who are growing golden lotus – use them to grow golden lotus and use your main to grind rep (the mounts will be account bound). If you don’t have a level 90 at least single alt, then get to work Having alts (alternative characters) in world of warcraft helps a lot so I suggest you plant herbs on alts and use main for daily faction quests.
