This post is for Cold's Gold Blogging Carnival on March 11th. The topic is "What Are You Currently Doing With Your Sunsong Ranch(es)?"
Right now I have 2 characters at 90, and thus 2 farms I can truly optimize.
Farm 1: My Main
My main is a Tailor/Alchemist. Since these two professions don't really benefit as much from Spirit of Harmony as others, I plant Enigma Seeds, mainly aiming for the Golden Lotus procs, of which I've gotten at a rate of 4.625 per day over the past 40 days. If I was planting Songbell Seeds, I'd be getting 1.6 Motes a day, which means an extra CD every 2 days, or about 9 Golden Lotus, so really is it worth it? On my server it was not, which is why I stuck with the Enigmas. You could do a similar calculation on your farm to see what your best option is!
Farm 2: Rare Seeds ASAP
So I hit 90 on my Death Knight literally 2 days ago. The day after hitting 90 I was already at Revered with the Tillers! How did I do this you ask? First of all I had my main that got Revered with the Tillers, so I purchased a Grand Commendation of the Tillers. Then I started all the Tillers quests before 90, and finished them, as well as having a plot of 4 ready to harvest (you only get Tillers rep for harvesting after dinging 90). Doing all the intro quests with double rep along with the dailies and one time rep quests on the day I turned 90 and the next, I was able to get to revered (12 plots + special crops + sprinkler/mass pesticide) the day after I hit 90, and now on the 3rd day I'm almost half way to exalted! With getting to exalted this easy with the Grand Commendation, I'm seriously considering leveling another character to 90 just for the additional Tillers farm once I hit Exalted with my DK. With my DK I'm going with the Motes because it's the only viable way for me to productively get them (Blacksmith). I'm getting a few doing the dailies as well which is a nice bonus!
So that's my current setup, I have a level 87 who I am considering leveling to get the 3rd farm going, but we'll see how that ends up! What are you doing with your Tillers farm right now?
