I'm looking forward to it. I think it sounds great, and it appeals to the fans of Harvest Moon, or Rune Factory (or FarmVille, w/e). And as some have said, you don't HAVE to play.
I am looking forward for this!Seems a really nice addition to the current way we farm reputationIts going to be really nice and funny:)
You mean we get to have more to do other than incessantly grinding and stabbing/blowing up things? The audacity.My only issue for this would be if this is 'required' much like certain reputation grinds. If I ever have to level Therazane again, no matter how cute Pebble is, I will kick a puppy. As someone that lives on an RP realm, having a farm is an *amazing* asset for roleplay I think, and if anyone is paying attention, this sorta goes in the direction of one other thing we're all pining for.Player homes, or maybe guild houses. Not quite by any means, but it makes me wonder. Does this sorta keep other people from seeing you? Or do you have chunky orcs trouncing your flower gardens as you peacefully farm away? If you're in a group, do you share the phasing? Or are you separated? In short, is this a farm that's yours and only yours to see or can you share it?Anyway, love the idea personally as I keep a farm in Minecraft and loved Harvest Moon. If it's not your thing, do what I expect to do with the 'pokemon' in the game. Pass it over, but keep an open mind. Being so violently against something without even entertaining the possibility of something 'new' only ruins potential fun. It's a self fulfilling prophecy.
It's instanced, which is against MoP's theme of keeping you out in the world, but I'm guessing that it's something that keeps you logging in every day, so that's how they would justify it.No way we get instanced houses in MoP, which I'm okay with.
This looks like something I'm really looking forward to. Almost like player housing--in fact, I wish we had a little house right there we could bring friends to!This plus pet battles, new dungeons, new LFR are what are bringing me back for MOP!

Nice. While I see some not liking the idea of a "pokemon" or farming game in their WoW. But like some mentioned that this is optional. I know I might have fun with this :)
It's good to hear it's more along the lines of Harvest Moon instead of Farmville (since I've heard mostly awesome things about Harvest Moon). Now I just wish I actually played Harvest Moon so I could be excited too o.O And I know a lot of people are pointing out that it's optional--however if you're an achievement hound like me, and there's achievements tied to this, it's not quite optional :)
Friendship, why does that sound familiar, *thinks* oh god yes the bronies are gong to be all this saying why isn't it My Little Pony Friendship is Magic for. come on Blizzard you did it with D3 and you have the bronies backing for more MLP FiM stuff for other games
I am looking forward to this. It's something new and I can do on my own and at my leisure. The gear treadmill gets old.
Does anyone know yet if 'Best Friend' status counts toward the Exalted Reputation achievements?
Sounds more like Harvest Moon than Farmville anyway.I mean one of the gifts is even a Blue Feather, which is an item used to propose marriage in the Harvest Moon games. :P
