Pig Farming for materials?

What's up with everyone doing that? Is it working? If it's an exploit will everyone doing that farming get banned?

    No. Couple of problems. If you are doing this in the leveling zone, all you get is White Meat. If you do this in a Silver or Gold instance, then you get some raw mats that you can refine.

    And, there are better places to farm for the raw mats and not have to put up with Campers. Mudcrabs on the Beach for instance. Much much better source, as you can also get loot to decon or sell. And a lot more exp to boot if they are on or near level.
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    There are several spots in the VR zones where you have instantly re-spawning livestock, which makes farming those spots viable ...

    Tried it but never got anything other than white meat, not sure why people do it.

    I tested it to see why people do it but got bored after killing 15 pigs.

    I like the thick leather that comes from pigs in zone 4

    Well when I need white meat I hit a level 1-10 zone to farm. I get about the same amount of leather scraps as white meat. Refine, drop resin, nice little bonus.
