Frostweave Cloth Farming

I made this Frostweave Cloth farming guide to help out players who want to farm the cloths instead of buying them from the Auction House. I decided to search for places with high density of mobs which I can kill and drop [Frostweave Cloth]. I traveled around Northrend, and after a while I made a list of places.

Frostweave Cloth

Farming Frostweave Cloth without [Northern Cloth Scavenging] sucks. The drop rate is horrible.

You can learn this skill by completing a quest, which is given by Grand Master tailoring trainers in Northrend. It requires Tailoring 325.


Naxxramas is an introductory level-80 raid dungeon floating above Dragonblight in Northrend. It's the best place to farm Frostweave Cloth, but only for level 85-90 players. Here is a step by step guide how to farm there:

Step 1. Go to Naxxramas in Northrend and set the raid difficulty to 25 before you go in. You can do this by right clicking over your own portrait.

Step 2. Clear the first part of the Plague Quarter and kill Noth the Plaguebringer. Level 85-89 players might need to ask for a friend's help to kill the first boss. You only need to kill it once, so it would only take a couple of minutes.

Step 3. Kill every mob after the first boss, you will find mostly bats there. This is the room where you will come back after you reset the instance. Don't kill the second boss!

Step 4. Run out. Reset the instance by right clicking over your own portrait and click "Reset all instance" then switch the raid difficulty to 10 man. You don't have to switch between 25 man and 10 man from this point. You only have to do that once because sometimes the bats wouldn't respawn if I tried to start in 10 man, but starting on 25 the first time, then switching to 10man seems to fix this problem. The mobs before the first boss's room won't respawn!

Step 5. Go in again, kill the bats, run out, reset the instance. Repeat these steps.

You can only reset an instance 10 times in an hour, so you will probably have a lot of downtime if you can clear the mobs really fast. You can go to the other farming places mentioned below until you can reset Naxxramas again.


Go to Icecrown and farm Converted Heroes. These mobs are in pack of 6-7, which means you should be level 80-81 with decent gear to be able to farm these.

This is the best place to farm Frostweave Cloth if you can't solo Naxxramas, it does not matter if you are a Tailor or not, it's still the best place. If you are not level 80 or 81 yet, you should wait until you reach level 81 and then come back to farm these.

If you can't farm the Converted Heroes, you can try to kill Dark Zealots and Dark Ritualist, they are also in Icecrown.

I could go on and list a dozen of other places, but most level 76+ humanoid and undead mobs have the same chance to drop Frostweave Cloth.
