Great farming spots or farming ideas
(07/04-2015) – Farming can be dangerous if you are on a PvP or RPPvP realm. On every realm, you have people known as gankers: Originally, ganking was when people were more than one attacking a player from the opposite faction (from the words “gang killing”), but nowadays, it refers mostly to higher level killing lower level (today’s gang-killing is mostly called “zerging”).
However, even if you don’t get ganked, you might get caught into PvP and it is not always interesting. I mean, when I am farming ores or flowers, I don’t really have time to waste on PvP’ing. I’d rather let him have one spot and I fly or ride to another location.
Therefore, the little add-on known as Spy, is a great help.
You can find this add-on on Curse, right here => http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/spy
This add-on scans for enemy players and announces their presence when they are detected. If the player is fighting a mob, for example, Spy will attempt to determine the class, race and level of the player.
(05/02-2014) – A quick way to make a lot of gold is to solo old raids. I generally solo WOTLK-raids regularly. They give less gold than Cataclysm-raid but they are all on the same continent (Northrend) so it is quick to go from one to the other. The Cataclysm raids are further apart from each other, so it is a bit boring.
One place, where you can earn a bunch of gold is Firelands.
Firelands entrance is located in Mount Hyjal in Kalimdor. It is in Sulfuron Spire, the giant lava lake on the south part of the map. You can’t miss it.
Now when Blizzard has squished the old content, this instance is very easy to clear. You don’t need any special gear or spec. Any DPS-class will work just fine.
Currently, I have several level 90s at my farming disposal, each with their own 16 plot farm which I use every day. Sunsong Ranch is a great way to make a lot of gold pretty quick… If you remember to do it every day <looks in direction of Nimrasil, who is too busy PvP’ing to farm>.
Since I have all professions, I will give you here an idea of how I do, in the hope of inspiring you. You too, Nim!
Priest – Alchemist (Transmute Spec)/Jewelcrafter
My priest is using Bag of Enigma Seeds for the herbs and the Snakeroots for the stones and gems. It is much quicker to get Trillium to prospect from the farm than from flying around farming. Sometimes she goes to make Spirit of harmony instead of stones and herbs and crafts primal diamonds out of it. A very easy and neat way to make from 300 to 400 gold in profit.
From Enigma Seeds, you can get any Pandarian herb, often, you get Golden Lotus (very useful for my stone transmutations). My priest keeps the Golden Lotus and send the other herbs to my scribe to mill and turn into inks. I generally keep the Fool’s Cap too and let my AH-char post them. They are selling very well, especially in week-days.
During the last three articles I’ve told you how you could use Carbonite to keep track of your quests, and how you can use it to help you mine ores or gather herbs.
You can also add your own routes to Carbonite, thus make it easier for yourself, if you’re going after certain vanity pets, hunter’s pets, farming eggs to get reputation to get a mount, or if you’re checking specific areas frequently and don’t want to look at the map all the time.
You can add waypoints to Carbonite in two ways – by writing them, or by clicking and adding them when you’re at a waypoint.
In both cases you need to start by opening up your favorites, and you do that by right-clicking the C icon and choosing Show Map.
Then click on the Favorite icon at the bottom.
Treasures of the Thunder King is a solo scenario happening on Thunder Isle. The Thunder King can see the troops of the Alliance and of the Horde walk around on his island, so he hurries to hide bunches of gold and of precious things… But you are smarter than him, and you get at least one key… Which grants you access to the Thunder King’s treasure.
When you find a Key, you have to speak to Taoshi, who you can find in Bleak Hollow (51.4 – 46.2) she will transport you to the entrance of the Thunder King’s Citadel.
The place is filled with troves, treasures, mobs and traps and, from the moment you start, you have five minutes to do whatever you want (and even what you don’t want, like dying, for example).
The citadel is pretty straight forward, but you have to have been there a couple of times to learn its topography (or to have seen videos or read this tip).
Farming Volatile air can be a tedious task. You can go to Uldum and kill Scion of Al’Akir forever and not get a single Volatile air.
Or you can run around and search for Sweeping Winds in the deserts of Uldum. They are scattered thin over the area, so finding them will take more time than killing them at level 90.
So what to do if you need those Volatile air, either to make gold with by selling it, or to make Truegold with for your Sandstone Drake?
Well, my friend Sothalis found a solution.
If you are a gatherer and use some time farming, mining, picking flowers, etc. You might want this add-on.
You can download it from curse. It will need Tom Tom and you might need gathermate if you want some automation.
With this add-on, you can create your own farming routes: the add-on will remember where you gathered what and when it is done, you can save it.
Next time you need to gather ores or herbs, archeology or fish from a special area, you can just pull the route up and follow it.
If you want to find a great place to farm nerubian chitin, make sure you don’t ruin it for yourself, like I did, when I was working on this tip.
You see, one little step done wrong, and everything is ruined. I found the perfect farming spot for nerubian chitin, but it’s no longer available for me. That is sad, because, as you know, nerubian chitin is a valuable piece of leather.
Here’s where you can find loads of it, and how you can keep coming back to this spot forever.
When you’re out to farm for a specific item, you might be doing so to level up your skills, or because you need that item to sell, or to use as an ingredient for something else.
If you don’t remember exactly where to find it, you could of course search for “ITEMNAME farming” on Google, but you can do much better.
Look at those maps, showing you exactly what you need, and you can choose all the items, you want, the area you want, a horde or alliance travel route, names of places and/or areas etc.
The maps uses Google Maps API, so everything you can do on Google Maps, like moving the zone, zooming, etc., you can do here.
If Frostweave Cloth is too expensive, or you can’t find any in AH, there’s a great place to farm them, whether your character is alliance or horde.
I went there with my lvl 76 Deathknight, and I was kept really busy and only had time to kill and loot, kill and loot, and occasionally get some healing.
The secret consists of finding one of those sweet spots, where the mobs respawn, and then just stay there and kill.
