As we reach the end of the Mists
era, it's a great time to finish up some of the achievements and questlines we may have missed. Like the Pinch King
, this questline is hidden. No marker indicates it. But you are given clues.
Once Fish Fellreed
gets to know you better, she will tell you the story of Old Man Thistle, a farmer who found a secret cave full of treasure. It collapsed behind him after his mushan Bobo smashed through a wall, but he drew a map to its location. Unfortunately, the location of the map, like the cave, has been forgotten.
In order to start the questline, you need to be exalted with the Tillers faction
and Best Friends with all of the Halfhill Market characters. You'll know you're done when the Friends on the Farm
achievement pops up.
There's no quest for this, but you should head to Cattail Lake and hunt the Enormous Cattail Grouper

and launch you on a brief but lucrative adventure.
