Relaxing is good too, though. I've always liked to zen out, put on some good music, have a drink, and just repeat the same thing for a few hours - provided there is very little stress involved in the activity. It's why I enjoyed healing on RDM in bird parties so much in XI. I'd get into my pattern of cycles and just chill. Conversely, pulling on BRD was repetitive with a lot of stress, and I hated it.
I finally have an almost stress free farming method in XI, and I'm going to milk it until I have enough money to upgrade my horn.
