Farming is a practice well known in online games, and often frowned upon. Usually, creatures that spawn in the same place on a regular basis and drop valuable loot are the favorite targets of player farming. A player group will camp at the spawn point, attack, kill, and loot the creature over and over (or at least as often as it spawns). This practice is sometimes frowned upon because very often the loot that is dropped is desired by a great many players, and it is felt that farmers are somehow hoarding or stealing the loot drop. Also, creatures are the targets of many missions and quests, and if a group is farming or camping a creature, no other group has acess to it (practically speaking) and thus misisons cannot be completed.
