Empyrium Farming

I made this Empyrium farming guide to help out players who want to farm the ores instead of buying them from the Auction House. You can mine this ore from skill 1, you will get the same number of ores as if you had Mining 100.



Get a [Stonehide Leather Barding] because there are so many mobs at Argus, you simply can't avoid them while farming.

If your class has a tanking spec, you should switch to that while farming, so you won't get dazed and you don't have to use Stonehide Leather Barding.

You should also enchant your gloves with [Legion Mining].

Antoran Wastes

Felfang Basilisks at Antoran Wastes drop 3-6 ore when you mine their corpse. This is currently the best way to farm Empyrium. The Basilisks are all in the green lava that does a lot of damage if you walk into it. Fortunately, there are a lot of rocks there so you have to try to jump from rock to rock without touching the lava. 


You will have to fight a lot of mobs in this zone. There is simply no way around killing the mobs, but there are some parts like Nath'Raxas hold at the most north part of the map where there are a lot more mobs than at other places. If you are struggling to mine there, you could just simply skip that part.
If you have a hunter, that's one of the best classes for farming, because you use can [Feign Death] at almost every mining node, so you will have to kill a lot fewer mobs. Druids and Rogues are also good because of stealth.


Not much worse from Krokuun, but I got fewer ores overall. The good thing about this place is that you have to fight a bit fewer mobs than at Krokuun.
