So the only way to solo farm is cheesing/exploiting?

I have seen many videos on how to solo content to make gold and I was picturing something fun but what I have seen in those videos is just exploiting and chessing the AI.

Is that it?

I mean if that is it no wonder why people run on GDKP to farm gold from the RMT buyers.


I thought you were quitting to play a different game with better PvP?


What, in the Dark Lady’s name, gave you the impression that anything ‘farming’ would be ‘fun’? Farming is work. You either cheese it, or you go with slow, dependable methods.


For better pve apparently too.

16 days left though if you care that much fan.

There are plenty of games where farming is quite entertaining and doesn’t involve cheesing or exploiting the game.

No, that’s just videos.

The whole purpose of videos is to show ways to do it FASTER or EASIER or ways to cheese the game. Nobody bothers making videos about the NORMAL ways to solo farm – the ways that most players use.


I agree. One of those games is WoW. I’ve been playing WoW for many years. Sometimes I am a crafter. Sometimes I am a farmer. But I only do things that are fun for me.

At the start of Legion, herbalism and mining were a blast. I had more fun doing that than leveling. So I mostly farmed, for months.

The same thing happened at the start of BFA. Farming was so profitable and fun that I did that, and leveled up months later.

Players that ONLY like raiding, and who ONLY farm to get consumables for raid, complain on the forums that “farming isn’t fun”. Don’t listen to the 0.01% of the playerbase that says this.


i usually play the auction house, but grinding mobs and free for all dungeon loot isn’t terrible. The existence of abusing 60g+/h methods does devalue the game if you focus too much on their existence though.

Mara 300+ looks fun. That looks more fun than just grinding mobs in one spot for hours.

Then why even bother farming? Lol you’re gonna quit in two weeks anyway.


I think herbalism is actually one of the best things in classic WoW and one of the few fun and challenging ways to make gold.

It makes you get out into the world instead of raid logging or instance farming, and it makes you actually experience the uncertainty of world PvP. High risks come with high rewards though and it really does feel good to find black lotus and frequent plaguebloom once you figure it out well enough.

Of course I don’t play on a megaserver either on this character or my main and I can only imagine how much more frustrating it would be on a server like Herod or Faerlina.


There are also plenty of farming methods in WoW that are like that as well but sounds like you’re not very good at the game or you would have figured that out already.

It is! Well I personally find it a lot of fun.

Definitely a bit cheesy with the ability to manipulate pathing but still tons of fun!

Agreed, Blizzard needs to acknowledge and fix these teleport and fly hacks:

FWIW, I never believe people that claim to be quitting if they are just playing until their current sub is up. People who really quit don’t want to play the game anymore. If you are still playing now, you are going to resub when your time runs out.


When you immediate response is “you bad!” it means you are clearly butthurt about the criticism that it is being made, stop being a fanboy.

You are going to be disappointed.

To all the others… what farming methods are outthere that don’t requiere this crap?, I don’t think they are possible, the game is gated group content and there is barely anithing you can do solo that is instanced.

Farming materials is also bad, I have to compete with teleport/fly hackers, bots and on top of that the amount of resources is lower than the population needs.

Just stop giving this guy advice, he never takes it anyway lol. Just let him ride out his two weeks and “quit”

Stop responding to my threads then, you can’t because you are my number 1 fan and you are desperate for my attention.

Because I actually enjoy the game and find your obliviousness impossible to ignore.

Also, I’m willing to bet 100g that I see you here posting your inane ramblings in 17 days.
