In this case, I did both. I was herbing anyway, so it wasn't like the black tabby or whelpling grinds, where you're JUST killing a mob that has no other use to you, (unless you're a skinner with the whelps, see the bottom of this post for more on that....) So I farmed in Ashran, and learned a lot about PvP, lol! (Disturbed Podlings apparently have a greater rate
But I also bought every unlearned Nightshade Sproutling that was a decent price off the AH, and learned it. I spent 15K gold on Sproutlings, and have already recouped 12K, AND given away two.
Last night, funny enough, I FINALLY got a Sproutling to actually DROP off a Disturbed Podling. Right after getting my purple TCG Riding Turtle from the garrison, so a GOOD RNG day. It was an H/B breed, so nothing too exciting, but it was still nice to see it actually drop. Rarity says it was my 67th podling on that toon, but that doesn't count the dozens of others I attacked before I got this new computer.
I like farming, honestly. I never buy anything I haven't put in SOME effort to farm. But when you've killed 15000 mobs in Wetlands going for a Tiny Crimson Whelpling, and gotten NOTHING, you tend to buy it. (15000 mobs, most killed with my skinner, netted literally hundreds of thick leather by the time I was done combining it)
Thaliana#1794 - My WoW account has 50 toons, so I would so greatly appreciate people creating toons on Kael'Thas or Ghostlands to trade with me. <3
