Shadowlands Mining Leveling Guide 1 - 150

This Shadowlands Mining leveling guide will show you the fastest way how to level your Shadowlands Mining skill up from 1 to 150.

Mining serves three professions: Blacksmithing, Engineering, and Jewelcrafting, so it's really good combined with any of these. Check out my Engineering leveling guide, Jewelcrafting leveling guide or my Blacksmithing leveling guide if you want to level any of these professions.

I recommend using Zygor's 1-60 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quests are 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. And if you are low on gold, I recommend trying this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make a lot of gold.

Shadowlands Mining Trainer Location

You can learn Shadowlands Mining from Excavationist Au'fer in Oribos at the Hall of Shapes. (Coordinates: 39.6, 33.2)

Oribos is the new Shadowlands city hub for both factions. You will arrive there after you finish the Shadowlands intro quests, so you can learn the new Mining skill before you head out questing.

How to speed up leveling

Below you will find a few tips that will help you mine ores faster.

Unfortunately, there are no new Stirrups or Leather Barding recipes in Shadowlands, so mining ores will be a lot harder. 

How to avoid getting dismounted

One of the most annoying things in WoW is getting Dazed. Every mob has a chance to daze you when they are in hitting you from behind, but there are two ways to prevent getting dazed.

  • If your class has a tanking spec, you can switch to that while farming. Tanks are immune to daze, so you will never get dismounted.
  • Equipping a Comfortable Rider's Barding in your mount equipment slot prevents you from being dazed while mounted. (doesn't work with druid forms)

Shadowlands Gathering Enchant

You can enchant your gloves with Enchant Gloves - Shadowlands Gathering to increase the speed of gathering in the new Shadowlands zones. (works with herbalism and skinning too) This enchant brings mining time down from 3.2 seconds to 1.7 seconds.

Leveling Shadowlands Mining (1-150)

The places listed in this guide are where I think you can level Mining the fastest, but you can level your Mining in any other zone, every Shadowlands ore gives skill points up to 150.

Alternative routes:

Bastion seems to have to most ores, so following these routes below should be the fastest way to level Shadowlands Mining. There are very few hostile mobs along these routes, so low levels or characters with bad gear can also use these.

Bastion - Route 1

Bastion - Route 2

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.
