There is both payoff and regret from the farming and grinding experiences of MMO gaming. MMO Attack is here to once again tackle the topic. The last Love and Hate covered the horrible effect gold farming has on an MMORPG economy. Not all farmers are gold sellers though, so farming can?t be all that bad. Just the opposite in fact, as farming for sell worthy items and currency is often required to fund a characters journey. Grinding through endless waves of diminutive creatures often comes with the territory in MMORPGs.
Entertainment value aside, farming can be a great way to make progress in your favorite MMO game without having to really pay attention. Part of my obsession with Final Fantasy XI in high school was how easy it was to farm for Beehive Chips while doing my homework. My brother?s school work even improved because of the amount of study time he put in while doing mundane grinding. Countless friends have even mentioned getting through unwanted reading while waiting for a group to form in their massive world.
