Classic WoW Mining Leveling Guide 1-300

This Classic WoW Mining leveling guide will show you the fastest way how to level your Mining profession up from 1 to 300.

Mining serves two professions: Blacksmithing and Engineering, so it's really good combined with these two. Check out my Classic WoW Blacksmithing Leveling Guide or my Classic WoW Engineering Leveling Guide if you want to level any of two professions.

Classic Mining Leveling

Every starter zone is filled with Copper Ore, it doesn't really matter which one you choose.

Night Elf players have to wait until they get to Darkshore before they can start leveling mining because Teldrassil doesn't have any Copper Ore.

Don't forget to buy a Mining Pick from the Mining Supply vendor near your trainer! You don't have to equip it, but you have to have one in your inventory.

1 - 65

65 - 125

Visit your trainer and learn Journeyman Mining. (You need to reach level 10, and level up Mining to at least 50)

Ores in these zones: Tin Ore, Copper Ore, Silver Ore

At 75 you can learn how to smelt Silver Ore, this will help you get your skill to 125. Silver Ore and bars sell for rougly the same, buy the ore and sell the bars at the auction house.

125 - 175

Visit your trainer and learn Expert Mining. (You need to reach level 20 and level up Mining to at least 125)

Ores in these zones: Iron Ore, Tin Ore, Gold Ore

At 155 you can learn how to smelt Gold Ore. Buy around 30 Gold Ore then smelt them, this should get you to around 175. Same as with Silver Ores, buy them, smelt them and sell the bars at the Auction House.

175 - 245

Don't forget to visit your Mining trainer and learn Artisan Mining when you reach 225! (You need to reach level 35 and level up Mining to at least 200)

Ores in these zones: Mithril Ore, Truesilver Ore

At 230 you can learn how to smelt Truesilver Ore, this should help you to level up to 245.

245 - 275

Ores in these zones: Mithril Ore, Truesilver Ore, Thorium Ore

275 - 300

Ores in these zones: Thorium Ore, Mithril Ore

Now you can mine Rich Thorium Veins too.

WoW Leveling Guide 1-60 Do you want to reach level 60 fast?

I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in a 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.
