    The ultimate gold farming guide!

    This is a listing of 18 major gold farming locations in World of Warcraft. The listing is pretty much biased towards higher level zones simply because farming gold with a low level character isn’t very smart at all. It’s much faster to level up your character to level 60 on some crappy equipment and then start earning gold for all the stuff you want to buy.
    Hopefully competition for these farming spots doesn’t increase too much after I publish this guide.
    Happy farming!

    WESTFALL
    *********

    Defias Trappers
    (31,33)
    In the Western shore of Westfall there is a small outpost that’s surrounded by level 12-13 Defias Trappers. This is a great farming spot for low level and even high level players because these Trappers respawn super fast. These Trappers have a 35% drop rate for Linen Cloth so higher level can fill their backbag with Linen Cloth very quickly while lower level
    players can use this spot to grind for experience.

    STRANGLETHORN VALE
    *******************

    Crystalvein Mine
    (44,45)
    Crystalvein Mine is a cave to the East from Gurubashi Arena. Inside the cave you’ll find a lot of Ironjaw Basiliks which are level 43-44 mobs. You’ll be able to earn nice gold by selling all the vendor trash items these guys drop and grinding the corpses for Thick Leather and Heavy Leather.

    AZSHARA
    ********

    Highbornes
    (16,70)
    Shadowsong Shire is on the left side of the road when you enter Azshara from Ashenvale. You’ll find some level 44-47 Highborne ghosts in there. They’re weak caster units so you’ll be able to farm them with ease for tons of mageweave, green drops and random chests.

    TANARIS
    *******

    Southsea Pirates
    (72,44)
    There is a Southsea pirate town in eastern Tanaris. The place is called Lost Rigger Cove and you can get there by going throught a tunnel. The place is full of level 43-45 pirates who should be very easy to farm on high levels. These guys drop some nice silver, Mageweave and Silk Cloth and also have a good drop rates for blue/purple items for such a low level mob which makes grinding them worthwhile.

    UN’GORO CRATER
    **************

    Devilsaurs

    Overall Un’Goro Crater is a great zone for skinners as there are so many kinds of skinnable mobs. It’s even better if you can kill Devilsaurs (level 52-55 elites) which can be skinned for Devilsaur Leather (Can sell for 50 gold per stack). Devilsaurs patrol
    6 different paths around Un’Goro and respawn relatively quickly which means that you can basically do circles around the crater killing Devilsaurs non-stop. Soloing Devilsaurs and Ironhide Devilsaurs shouldn’t be too hard on level 60. I’d recommend avoiding Tyrant Devilsaurs though because they have a nasty Fear ability.

    WINTERSPRING
    ************

    Ice Thistle Yetis
    (67,40)
    These guys are great for skinners. Not only do they drop nice vendor trash items, green items and sometimes blue/epics buy you can also skin them for Rugged Leather and Thick Leather which makes farming them greatly worthwhile. You’ll find tons of Ice Thistle Yetis from a large area North and East from Everlook.
    Lake of Kel’Theril
    (53,42)
    There are tons of level 54-55 ghosts around this lake. (Suffering/Anguished Highborne, etc.) These ghosts are pretty weak, drop 2-8 silver, a lot of green items and even have a tiny change of dropping epics. Random chests also spawn on this area. The lake is often heavily farmed but other than that it’s a great farming spot.
    Also, a weekly water elemental invasion also takes place around the lake. It goes on until the boss, Princess Tempestria is slain. The elementals have a good drop rate for Essence of Water and the boss drops good very valuable blue items like Ace of Elementals. You’ve better group up for the boss though, soloing her isn’t impossible but still pretty hard to do.
    Cobalt Dragons
    (57,50)
    South East from the Lake of Kel’Theril there is a cave and around that cave there are a lot of Cobalt Dragons which are level 56-58 elites. The Cobalt Mageweavers/Scalebanes/Cobalt Wyrmkins on this area have a tiny change (Something like 1/1000) of dropping a a [Mature Blue Dragon Sinew]. Getting this item is hard work but you’ll be greatly rewarded if you succeed because Hunters need this items for a quest to get the epic quiver [Ancient Sinew Wrapped Lamina] and that’s why it can sell for hundreds of gold.
    As a bonus Cobalt Mageweavers also have a pretty high 1.7% drop rate for [Recipe: Greater Arcane Protection Potion]. Guilds need this potion for AQ so you’ll be able to sell it for a pretty nice amount of gold if you can find the right buyer. Of course most elites also drop a lot of valuable green and blue items and Cobalt Dragons are no exception.
    Frostmaul Giants

    Frostmaul Giants are down in the Frostwhisper Gorge which is in South from Everlook. These guys are level 59-60 elites so they are pretty tough but they have a 2% drop rate for [Recipe: Greater Frost Protection Potion] which makes them worth farming for. The recipe can very well sell for something like 50 gold. As said already, these guys aren’t easy so it won’t hurt to be a Hunter or a Warlock when soloing them.
    Darkwhisper Gorge
    (60,75)
    Darkwhisper Gorge is South from Everlook, all the way to bottom of the map of Winterspring. The demons (Hederine Slayer/Intiate) there are level 60 Elites so you’ve better group up before going there. What makes this place lucrative is that the demons have almost 1% drop rate for Eye of Shadow which is a very high value item (can sell for over 200 gold). You’ll also get tons of Runecloth, Felcloth and green items.

    FELWOOD
    ********

    Angerclaw Maulers
    (37,43)
    Angerclaw Mauler bears are all over Felwood but there is a particularly good grinding spot for them at (37,43) which is North and a bit East from Bloodvenom Post (Horde camp). There are about 15 Angerclaw Maulers near that spot which can be killed relatively quickly for a lot of gray vendor trash drops. The trick is that when you combine those with
    the Thick Leather and Rugged Leather that can be skinned off these guys, you’ll earn gold surprisingly fast.
    Jadefire Run
    (41,19)
    Jadefire Run in Northern Felwood is a great place to farm tons of Runecloth and some Felcloth which is very valuable. The mobs on that area are level 52-53 Satyrs (Jadefire Betrayer/Trickster/etc) which are pretty easy to kill. This is a great farming spot as long as there isn’t too much competition.
    WESTERN PLAGUELANDS
    ********************

    Felstone field
    (36,57)
    Felstone field is first of the fields when you come from Bulwark. The great thing about this place is that there are tons of weak undead mobs who drop a lot of Runecloth. The respawn rate is also high so you won’t have any downtime unless there are other farmers competing with you.
    Hearthglen
    (45,16)
    Hearhglen is the Scarlet city in Northern Western Plaguelands. There are relatively easy to kill level 53-56 Elites (Scarlet Priest/Sentinel/Paladin/etc) all over Hearthglen. These guys have a high drop rate for Runecloth but what really makes them worth farming are the misc green/blue/epic items they sometimes drop.
    There is also a tower (55,25) which you’ll pass on your way to Hearthglen. The tower is usually heavily farmed for [Formula: Enchant Weapon - Crusader] because Scarlet Spellbinder is the only unit in the game to drop that formula and there are 7 of those in the tower. This formula is very valuable and can sell for 200+ gold. I’d recommend anyone who ever gets a change to farm these guys without competition to do so.
    Decaying Horrors and Rotting Behemoths

    You’ll find Decaying Horrors and Rotting Behemoths near and inside The Weeping Cave in Eastern part of WPL. These are just regular level 55-57 mobs with a high drop rate for [Recipe: Greater Nature Protection Potion]. You get one recipe for about ever 100 kills and it can sell for as much as 100 gold so this looks like a pretty good deal to me.

    EASTERN PLAGUELANDS
    *******************

    Mossflayer Zombies
    (28,85)
    Mossflayer Zombies reside in The Undercroft which is in the Southwestern corner of EPL. These guys drop are nothing too special except for being weak, respawning quickly and dropping a lot of silver and Runecloth. This is a good place to farm if there is too much competition over the other farming spots.
    Plaguebats

    You’ll have no problem finding Plaguebats. They’re all over the Southern part of EPL. Farming these guys is worth it especially during the Darkmoon Faire because Plaguebats have a high drop rate for Evil Bat Eyes which are required for a Darkmoon Faire quest. On some cases Evil Bat Eyes can sell for as much as 2 gold a piece. Of course you’ll also make a lot of gold selling all the vendor trash items and skinning the corpses of these guys.
    Larval Acids

    Carrion Grubs and Carrion Devourers are also the kind of mobs you’ll see all over the place in EPL. These guys have a high drop rate for Larval Acid which can sell for as much as 7 gold so killing all the Carrion mobs you encounter might not be a bad idea.

    The ultimate gold farming guide!
