Volatile Air Farming

This guide will list the places where I found the most [Volatile Air]. One thing I noticed while farming Volatiles Air is that sometimes you farm for 15 minutes and you don't get a single Volatile, this is just bad luck, don't get discouraged.

So, where to farm Volatile Air?

Volatile Air

Vortex Pinnacle - Uldum

Vortex Pinnacle is the best place to farm Volatile Air, and you can easily solo this instance from level 100. You can find the entrance high in the air in the southeast part of the Uldum, over the ocean. Click here for the exact map location.

First, you have to set the instance difficulty to normal (right click your portrait). You can't farm in heroic mode because you can't reset the instance after you kill the first boss.

Kill everything until the second boss Altairus, then just simply jump down, you won't die, it will teleport you to the start of the instance. Go outside and reset the instance by right clicking over your own portrait then click the "Reset all instance" button. This restarts the whole instance and all mobs will be back. You can only do 10 instance runs in an hour, this means sometimes you might have to wait a bit.

Use [Bear Tartare] if have a level 101+ character. You will clear the instance almost twice as fast.


If you are too low level to solo Vortex Pinnacle, you can farm Scion of Al'Akir. There is a lot of them at Uldum and they respwan very quickly. The drop rate is not that great, around a 12%.

If you are an Engineer, you can farm Volatile Air with [Electrostatic Condenser], but only if you have a gathering profession.

Contact me if you have other great farming spots!

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.
