Places a pin on the World Map and Minimap for every known Dark Soil spawn location in Heartland (VotFW). Each pin has a tooltip with a detailed location description as necessary.
How to Use
Instal: Like any other AddOn. Set up: Works 'as is'. For options enter '/ds', '/dark', '/soil', '/darksoil' in chat.
Please note:By entering the command '/ds m' you toggle between TWO command modes. One mode adjusts the Dark Soil icons. The other mode adjusts the "bonus" NPC location icons. This dual menu or "mode" mechanism departs from all other of my AddOns but was necessary in this instance.
For any chat command, you may add a "?" to see rather than change the current setting. E.g. '/ds i ?' to see the current icon setting.
Players are able to collect Dark Soil to gain friendship reputation with several members of The Tillers faction.
Dark Soil mainly spawns in the Heartland area of the Valley of the Four Winds in Pandaria. Dark Soil has been known to spawn outside this sub-zone and indeed outside the zone but time-efficient farming of Dark Soil is very much confined to Heartland.
Wowhead reports over 200 locations. This may or may not be correct. Over 150 locations, correct to two decimal places, have been included in this AddOn. The author has personally farmed and documented each one and many have been verified a second or more time.
😃 You can resize the World Map / Minimap pin icons
😃 Choice of pin icons
😃 Chat links
😃 If the icon is out of range of the Minimap, the icon will hover at the border to indicate direction
😃 Map Tooltips
😃 Bonus NPC locations with their unique icons
😃 No Ace libraries = no bloat
😃 Ultra small cpu/memory footprint
Ten NPCs represent the ten "friendships" you advance by donating the loot from the Dark Soil to these NPCs. Most of these NPCs have a fixed location in Heartland. On certain days a couple of the NPCs will visit the Halfhill market for a day and thus will be absent from Heartland. This AddOn marks the usual location of each NPC.
You may link your finds to friends and guild members. Click in the Edit Frame of your chat channel, be it Whisper, General, Guild, whatever. From the Mini-Map or World Map hold the mouse over the egg location with the Control Key held down. Left click. Done! Format will be 'Dark Soil (x,y) (Location information)' or 'NPC Name (x,y) (Location information)'.
If You Like Dark Soil
While adventuring, map your way with X and Y and keep track of Sunrise & Sunset, pickup a great raptor pet with Adorable Hatchling Nests, search for Netherwing Eggs, hunt for achievement critters and NPCs with Rare Love, try Tip to enhance your Tooltips, go the Hard Yards, the most accurate way to measure distance, use This Scampi Happening for fish flavoured Tooltips, or Yarrr for pirate Tooltips, and instal Let Minnow to show off your fishing poles! You Cod Do Batter for fishing achievements and you'll need Dark Soil for The Tillers friendships and a Loose Pebble for your Dog! When you turn geek, turn to Fibonacci! Who wipes? We Don't Wipe, an excellent DPS maximiser!
Cookies, Beer & Donations
It is all about the cookies and beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Donate because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend". 😊
