Players can start their own personal farms at Halfhill in the Valley of the Four Winds at level 85. When harvesting fully grown crops, players will have a small chance of looting an Ominous Seed. If planted, the seed will grow and yield the Terrible Turnip when harvested.

If you don't have a Terrible Turnip, you need to get one immediately!  This pet is what you build your capture team around.  Sunlight doubles the health pool, thus doubling your capture window, and Weakening Blow will not reduce the enemy's HP below 1.

 

Give your target a couple whacks (no DoT's) with your big guns, then whip out the turnip, turn on Sunlight, and give another whack or two and you'll never again accidentally kill the pet your trying to capture.

To answer several folks' questions, the Terrible Turnip grows from an "Ominious Seed," which is a random drop from any crop you harvest.

I love this pet. Its first ability cannot take a target below 1, which makes it really effective for farming low level pets. It should be essential for anyone who wants to collect pets fast and easy. No more worrying about accidently killing it too.

 

In battles, this ability can be swapped out for one that damages the whole enemy team, combined with healing abilities, this pet does really well against many types of teams.

These are a must for any serious battle pet collectors. The first attack (Weakening Blow) will never kill a pet your attacking as long as it doesn't suicide, there are no dots, or other things that could kill the pet. This is especially perfect for when you're farming for rares or hard to find.

 

It's rather cheap on the AH too (I got mine for 20g) so there really isn't any excuse...

I love this pet! I got one yesterday and discovered today just how useful he is for capturing other pets. No more accidental crit hits that take out that rare I've been trying to catch for hours. =)

I love this pet and also find it great for collecting pets since his one ability will never reduce the enemy below 1hp. Hes also pretty cute for a vegetable. :)

A great pet for catching other pets during battling because of weaking blows.  You don't have to worry about it dying from an over application of damage.

Don't forget. If you're having tons of trouble finding this pet, you can usually buy him from the AH for cheap!

Trying for this pet but I am not getting it. 9 different characters 12 plots to plant per day so far no luck in about two weeks. Following the advice below planting what Yoon tells me via the daily quest.

I got mine for 90 gold on the AH. I named hime Turnip Head from Howle's Moving Castle. He's really easy to level, just open with him and hit everything with sunny day. Then switch and mow the enemy team down. He will be amazing to use to catch other enemies without worrying about killing them.

Just be sure not to use Leech Seed too late in the battle if you are trying to catch a pet. Leech Seed lasts for 1 round so you can use it, then use Weakening Blow, and then Leech Seed's effect can kill your opponent. Very frustrating if you forget and use Leech Seed when you wanted to catch the pet!

 

And yes, very cheap - I think they are below 5g on some of the realms I play on. Almost not worth posting my extras.

I love this thing. You will never kill a rare ever again if you have a lvl 25 turnip.  Not sure if this is coincidence but I have had 3 drop and all of those seeds came from harvesting the crop of the day (I normally farm motes). Cheap on the AH too so get one and lvl it for your pet collecting pleasure.

    The best thing about this pet is the ability Weakening Blow. I will save you the frustration of killing that verry rare spawned pet you just found after like a month of farming for it. If you dont have it yet and dont feal like farming for one just buy one of the AH they should be fairly cheep.

One of the Tillers (Ella) gives you a tree seed pack. I planted the 3 trees and looted it that day. Not 100% sure it came from one of the trees, but I'm pretty sure it did.
