Empyrium Ore Farming

I made this Empyrium Ore farming guide to help out players who want to farm the ores instead of buying them from the Auction House. You can mine this ore from skill 1, you will get the same number of ores as if you had Mining 800.


Empyrium Ore

Get a [Stonehide Leather Barding] because there are so many mobs at Argus, you simply can't avoid them while farming.

If your class has a tanking spec, you should switch to that while farming, so you won't get dazed and you don't have to use Stonehide Leather Barding.

You should also enchant your gloves with [Legion Mining].

Antoran Wastes

Felfang Basilisks at Antoran Wastes drop 3-6 ore when you mine their corpse. This is currently the best way to farm Empyrium Ore.

The Basilisks are all in the green lava that does a lot of damage if you walk into it. Fortunately, there are a lot of rocks there so you have to try to jump from rock to rock without touching the lava. Use [Fighter Chow] if you don't have that much self healing, and equip any healing legendary like [Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus].

NOTE: I honestly think this will get nerfed because similar basilisk at the Broken Shore only drop one Felslate and not even every single time. So if you notice that you don't get 3-6 Empyrium Ore each time you mine a Felfang Basilisk, then this place got nerfed.

Krokuun

You will have to fight a lot of mobs in this zone. There is simply no way around killing the mobs, but there are some parts like Nath'Raxas hold at the most north part of the map where there are a lot more mobs than at other places. If you are struggling to mine there, you could just simply skip that part.

If you have a hunter, that's one of the best classes for farming, because you use can [Feign Death] at almost every mining node, so you will have to kill a lot fewer mobs. Druids and Rogues are also good because of stealth.


Mac'Aree

Not much worse from Krokuun, but I got fewer ores overall. The good thing about this place is that you have to fight a bit fewer mobs than at Krokuun.

WoW Leveling Guide 1-110 Do you want to reach level 110 fast?

I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in an small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. The guide is available for both Horde and Alliance.

I use Zygor's guide for leveling and I highly recommend it.
