Volatile Air Farming
This guide will show you the best place where I found the most [Volatile Air]. One thing I noticed while farming Volatile 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?
Uldum is the best place to farm Volatile Air. Start killing Scion of Al'Akir, there is a lot there and they have a very quick spawn rate. They drop Volatile Air with 12% drop chance.
There are also Sweeping Winds around this area, and they also drop Volatile Air, but the mobs are a bit more spread out than Scion of Al'Akir.
If you are an Engineer, you can farm Volatile Air with [Electrostatic Condenser], but only if you have a gathering profession.
Alchemists can use [Transmute: Living Elements] to transmute Volatile Life into any other Volatile. Typically, when you use Transmute: Living Elements, you will receive 14-16 random Volatile elements (Volatile Air, Volatile Earth, Volatile Water, or Volatile Fire) in exchange for 15 Volatile Life.
If you use this transmute while in one of the new Cataclysm zones associated with the Elemental Planes, however, the element into which your Volatile Life will transform will be predetermined.
This means if you use Transmute: Living Elements while in Uldum, you will always receive Volatile Air for your efforts.
Full list of zones:
- Mount Hyjal - [Volatile Fire]
- Vashj'ir - [Volatile Water]
- Deepholm - [Volatile Earth]
- Uldum - [Volatile Air]
