Silk Cloth Farming

I made this Silk 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 [Silk Cloth]. I traveled around Azeroth, and after a while I made a list of places.


Silk Cloth

Eastern Plaguelands

Farming Death's Step Putrifiers and Death's Step Miscreations at Eastern Plaguelands is probably the best place to farm Silk Cloth. These mobs are in pack of three and the places is designed in a way that there is always at least 3 pack of these groups up. This means a new pack of mobs will spawn instantly when the number of packs in the area are down to 3.

Some of the packs are a bit harder to notice, here is a picture of all the packs in the area.

Sometimes this place is heavily farmed, so if you find players already farming there, then I suggest you to visit other farming places.

Feralas - Alliance or lvl 70+ Horde

New Thalanaar is also a really great spot. Grimtotem Marauders are battling with Feralas Sentinels and they respawn after about 20 seconds if you kill them, which means you will never run out of them. You can see a tower at this place on a small island, don't leave this island, just go around in circles and kill the mobs there.

Note for Horde players:This place is actually an alliance town, so lower level horde players should not go there, but for higher level horde players it doesn't really matter as long as you have some kind of AoE ability, you will oneshot mobs anyway. If you have trouble killing the alliance guards, you should go to the next place mentioned in the guide. You should only farm here if you oneshot the guards because the guards drop no loot.

Thousand Needles - Horde or lvl 70+ Alliance

Westreach Summin at Thousand Needles is almost the same as New Thalanar, but the mobs are a bit more spread apart. Grimtotem Pillagers are battling with Summit Defenders and they respawn after about 20 seconds if you kill them, which means you will never run out of them.

Note for Alliance players:This place is close to a horde town, so lower level alliance players should not go there, but for higher level alliance players it doesn't really matter as long as you have some kind of AoE ability, you will oneshot mobs anyway. You should only farm here if you oneshot the guards because the guards drop no loot.

Badlands

The Dwarfs and Troggs outside Uldaman drop a lot of Silk and they are only level 35-36, so if you have trouble farming at the places mentioned above, you can try this.

Dustwallow Marsh

Blackhoof Village in Dustwallow Marsh is also a decent place. The mobs drop 1-3 Silk Cloth and they respawn pretty quickly, you can keep running from one end of the camp to the other and farm Silk Cloth.

When you have enough Silk Cloth, go to my Mageweave Cloth farming page.
