Cobalt Ore Farming

This Cobalt Ore farming guide will show you the best places for mining Cobalt Ore.

Don't forget to learn Northrend Mining before you start farming Cobalt Ore! You can mine this ore without having Northrend Mining, but you will get MUCH fewer ore!

You can learn Northrend Mining from one of the NPCs below:

Both factions can learn it from Jedidiah Handers at Dalaran. (Northrend, not Legion Dalaran)



Cobalt Ore

Howling Fjord

Howling Fjord is the best place for mining Cobalt Ore. But, this zone is usually heavily farmed on higher population realms, so you might want to try out the other alternatives below.

Borean Tundra

Borean Tundra is also an excellent place if you don't like Howling Fjord for some reason, or if someone else is farming there.

Grizzly hills

Great farming place, usually very few players are farming there.


You will find a few Saronite Deposit in this zone but it's mostly just Cobalt Ore if you stick the lower part of the map.

Once you are done mining Cobalt, go to my Saronite Ore Farming page!
