Tillers’ Friendship Reputation: Dark Soil in Valley of the Four Winds
The Tillers in Mists of Pandaria
As well as acting like a normal reputation faction, there are 10 Tillers NPCs with whom you can increase your faction reputation from Stranger to Best Friend.
The easiest and fastest way to get rep with each of the NPCs is to give them a gift.
You can find out which gift they each like by talking to them. They have particular preferences which give more rep than giving them another gift.
You can find the gifts in the Dark Soil patches which spawn around the farming area in Valley of the Four Winds.

You can also gather the gifts from your own farm, when you harvest a crop, if you’re lucky.
None of the rewards are very useful for making gold. They’re mostly decorative. Even when you get to exalted status and earn the option to ask one of your Best Friends to join you at the ranch, they don’t do much farming. Chooseing Jogu the Drunk gives you free predictions for crops, one second’s flight closer, and choosing Gina Mudclaw moves the faction vendor one second closer. However, you still need to go to the market to buy seeds, so both are a waste of time in my opinion.
One of the types of seeds, which is first offered to you by Haohan Mudclaw are Songbell seeds. These harvest a mote of harmony. Dedicating your farm to songbell plants will net you 1.6 Spirit of Harmony per day. Nice if you’re not feeling violent.
Farming Valley of the Four Winds
An unexpected bonus for you. My maps of ore and herbs from Valley of the Four Winds. Naturally they’re only nodes that I have visited myself, on the beta. So you will be able to get new ones soon. However they should help you in the few days before you are able to generate your own maps with Gatherer or GatherMate 2.
