We all knew this topic was gonna come along. Any ideas where lots of Mandragor spawn? --Sam6555 17:03, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

I would think that just outside SGH, to the right it's quite easy and quick. 17:10, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
apart from the fact that its the wrong root which drops from them. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 17:18, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Actually you're right, my bad. 17:22, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
LOL no worries, its the thought that counts. :) -- Salome User salome sig2.png 17:28, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
I think the best place would be somewhere that has a mandragor bounty in the area? like Barbarous Shoretruesimzy 17:34, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

These are probably gonna become expensive now, or atleast for 1 week -- be nice if somebody made a farm route -- User C4K3 Signature.jpgC4K3 17:41, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

I don't think it's the role of the wiki to present farming routes. As noted above, just look around where the bounties for them are found: western Barbarous Shore, western Arkjok Ward, and eastern Bahdok Caverns. --Thervold 17:50, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
The place that has the most of them in one area is Arkjok Ward, around the area where Enadiz the Hardheaded is, most other places just have them appearing from the ground in spread-out locations across the maps.(marsc 18:31, 11 May 2009 (UTC))
It is the role of the wiki to provide useful information about the game. Good farming places and techniques for a particular item falls clearly in that category, even if it's just in the talk pages. --Emkyooess 18:43, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Actually techniques for farming isnt within our remit however their is no harm in a brief note of the easiest place to farm such items. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 21:01, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
I disagree with Salome. This is a resource by the players for the players. Each week there is a new item which many people will find difficult to obtain such as last week's and this week's. We would be helping the player base immensely by putting some kind of efficient way to farm roots (or whatever it is) on the relevant pages. Last week many players would have saved A LOT of time and grief had we mentioned the two Necro BiP and Bone Horrors thing. That is within the scope of the wiki for sure. 04:33, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Theres a site that already provides that information. It's called PvXwiki. Laserblasto! 06:26, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
General Strategy of farming one certain items should be in wiki page relating to that item, not in repository of random, generally subpar or obsolete builds where noone is going to find it (or look for it). PvX page discussing spawn locations and droprates would not last there long anyway, because it is page that belongs to this wiki Zweistein 08:27, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Not to mention that majority quests and missions provide strategic tips (in their pages as well as in discussion). There is just no reason not to have similar tips for Nicholas items except greed and personal gain Zweistein 08:44, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Such a Farming article exists... MrPaladin talk 12:12, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Guys disagree with me all you like, however it doesn't change the fact that this is not what the wiki is for. The wiki documents the game, it may even give advice as where best to go to acquire a certain drop or item, however it does not and should not start to contain farming builds and the like for pointless drops that people will only want for a week. This is not an opinion, this is how the wiki simply is and how it functions at the moment. Any such information will be reverted by the wiki community. You go onto wikipedia and check the talk pages, people are not sat their discussing if they enjoyed a film or not and nor are they giving tips on how one can improve their badminton game. Instead it simply states the facts. As paladin has said we have articles which include basic guides, but if you want farming builds go to pvxwiki or discuss it on any of the numerous forums dotted about the internet dedicated to guild wars. for the last time this is NOT a forum! -- Salome User salome sig2.png 12:27, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I dont know where you got the farm build thing for, i was asking for a farm route, not a build -- any build can do it, besides, on many other pages there are farm routes, as somebody said(sorry forget who)the idea of the wiki is to document the game, an easy way to farm this would be documenting the game as you would be documenting the best place to get these, there is absolutely no harm in putting a route there, it will server as a guide for people to find these fast, so they can get their cakes or gifts -- User C4K3 Signature.jpgC4K3 12:56, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I look at the page now, and its shows aquisition, then it lists farming... in my mind its redundant because on this page they are the same thing... The farming routes arnt needed because the aquisition already covers the locations to find/farm the item... redunant articles are redundant MrPaladin talk 13:34, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Hm, I don't think a couple maps are a bad idea; we tend to have "Ok, we always run into huge hordes of X when we're trying to do something else, now where the heck WAS that?" issues with these kind of hunts. The "Aquisition ... farming" thing might be a little ugly; you could note the farming routes as "High drop frequency routes / locations / something" perhaps, might look better? IDK. For routes that have clear maps, you could just post the maps with a caption as to the region / area and leave it as that.

Also, I noticed that to get to Nicholas to turn these in, you have to trip over a fair number of mandragor ^_^. --Star Weaver 16:41, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

The maps as they stand are fine. Only 1 or 2 of the most efficient routes however are needed as we dont need the pages to be over map heavy. Beyond that nothing more is needed, if one can't follow a map in a computer game, then one has more to worry about than getting gifts of the traveller. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 15:32, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm glad we straightened this out here and now :) -- 18:32, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

I think that the farming routes should include a rough number of drop items and a time. It would help if someone found an alternate route so they could easily see of it was worth posting about. 01:24, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Or better than that, enemy group locations, sizes, patrol paths, composition but thats more like textmod thing. Hmmm... Zweistein 09:00, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Starting to get waaaay outside the scope of this wiki. People won't even care about Mandragor Roots in a few days. Misery 09:04, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm just waiting for him to want Luminous Stones for the lol's 10:59, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
As misery said, getting way outside the scope of the wiki. The maps as they stand are fine, if you want the things you stated above, do the run yourself and find out that way. Do not add it to the article page however. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 11:06, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Farming section and sub-sections[edit]

The discussion that took place 3 years ago (above) is irrelevant now. Anybody who finds a Farming route is more than welcomed to edit the main page following Guild_Wars_Wiki:Formatting/Items#Acquisition, here are two examples: Alpine Seed and Shiverpeak Mane.
