The Daily Grind: What’s your least favorite sort of thing to farm in an MMO?


Some MMOs, as we all know, have actual farms. Literally, just a place where you put farm goods and you farm things. But that’s not really what we mean when we’re talking about farming; we’re talking about when you go out into the world and spend your time repeatedly gathering something, or killing something or somehow interacting with things to get items that you need. It’s not exactly compelling gameplay, but sometimes it’s just… how the gameplay works. So it goes.

But some farming is better than others. In some games, getting herbs is just a gigantic hassle no matter what. Other times it’s farming enemies for specific drops. Sometimes it’s mining nodes. The point is that there’s almost certainly something that you may need to farm at times that is a tremendous pain in the rear. So what’s your least favorite sort of thing to farm in an MMO? What do you farm if you have to even as you really would rather not?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
