I have crafting of all professions, so I am quite often running around on an alt getting wood, ore, hides or texts, and on occasion farming, but the big difference is when I`m gathering materials, I am also doing quests, or deeds, maybe helping a kinnie out doing his quests, but with farming the whole process is done standing still.
Now I understand you cant plant fields whilst moving through the landscape, but what I would really, really like is the ability to plant 50 Fields, then farm them with 1 click, rather than spending hours staring at my Monitor planting 3-4 fields at a time, then harvesting them.
At least if I could plant the fields in massive numbers I could go and do the hoovering and keep the wife happy, as I do when turning Texts into scrolls
It seems to me that farming wastes a lot of game time, there must be some way this can be improved.
PS, why dont Sigils drop in Westfold fields, are we the only gathere that cant get them.
