When Mists of Pandaria
was first announced at BlizzCon 2011, the developers stated that players would be able to grow cooking mats and herbs on their very own farm in the next expansion. Immediately, players began to speculate on what exactly the words "your own farm" meant in World of Warcraft
. Would we be getting our own version of FarmVille
? Or maybe something more like Harvest Moon
? Could this mean player housing? No one knew, and the general shortage of information over the months led some of us to wonder whether we'd be seeing the new feature at launch or have to wait for it in a future patch.
Now, almost a year after the original announcement for Mists of Pandaria
, we can finally put a lot of our questions to rest. Over the weekend, Blizzard implemented The Tillers
quests on beta servers, and with them, the new farm feature. So is it FarmVille
? Let's take a look.
Your adventure in farming begins in Valley of the Four Winds
, where you'll be able to start a line of daily quests to gain reputation with a pandaren faction known as The Tillers. Quests revolve around an NPC named Farmer Yoon
, a young pandaren who recently traveled to the valley to inherit his late grandfather's farm, Sunsong Ranch. As it turns out, though, Yoon isn't cut out for all the hard work a farm requires, so he enlists you to help him run the farm and win favor with the valley's farming guild, The Tillers.
