Target Item: [Netherweb Spider Silk]
Area: Near Allerian Stronghold, Terokkar Forest
Mob: Dreadfang Widow
Many people know about the spiders around here and they also know that the silk they drop is worth alot of money. Many times though I get tells from people asking me if this is a good place to farm, and if the drop rates are worth it. In my opinion it is and is worth roughly 120g/hour if you are fast about.
The the thing about these spiders is that they are really easy to kill unlike the spiders in the black morass with many types of other beasts getting in the way. To get the best profit out of the spider silk its best if you are quick and their is little to none other people farming them as well. Start cleaning out the place killing every spider in your path. If you ever get to a point to where you cannot see any spiders within your view mount up and run around until you find a new patch of them.
Another upside to farming these guys is the fact if you are alliance the Allerian Stronghold is right next to you so no need to worry about inventory room, just pick up everything and sell trash or repair when needed.
A downside to farming these guys is their poison which can interrupt bandaging and can get quite annoying. It does about 200 damage every 3 seconds so it shouldn't hurt you that much though.
The drop rate on the spider silk is about 16% which usually averages to about 10-14 drops every 30 minutes if you are lucky. The silk itself sells for 30-60g per 10 depending on your server and the demand for it at the time. Its mainly used for tailoring and many tailors need it to level up and create certain bags, tailoring spec sets, and other epic quality items so of course they are going to need alot of this stuff. Also if you are a tailor yourself this is a good spot to farm awhile to get the required mats for your works.
GL farming guys and I hope this helps some of you.
