I didn't find a post relating to the subject, but if you are new to the game then it is something I would encourage you to do. Farming is essentially attacking islands with exposed stores/pumps/mines with minimal troops just to gain loot (grog and gold). Your aim is NOT to win just to keep your builders busy. Tips : 1. Look for islands with unarmed flame gates and/or mines. 2. Only hit bases with high loot numbers that you are confident you can steal from. 3. Test an exposed mine/pump with a gunner first before you commit to the rest. 4. Be prepared to lose, you are after loot only. Troops to use are gunners, barbs, bombers and thieves so focus on them as your update priority. Good luck, PM if you need tips or pointers or reply here. Good loot out there, I am at a later stage of farming, more on that later, SS of my efforts below.
