Cata Mining/Herb Gold Making Guide: Twilight Highlands - Best Routes | Getting Started/Farming

Cata Mining Gold Guide SQ

To get started, you'll need to have 525 Mining, 525 Herbalism and be atleast level 80 along with Azeroth flying. Although, being 82-83 plus is ideal since mobs can literally one shot an 80. You'll also want to download the addon, gatherer and its data; if you want the nodes already marked although I prefer a clean slate and like to make my own personally. Then, get a few Mining & Herb bags and make sure you have one regular bag to collect all your gems or items from killing mobs and that there mostly empty. Lastly, be repaired, have some food/water, blare some music, and have fun!

  • To get to Twilight Highlands just take the port in your faction's major city or fly to a nearby zone like Arathi Highlands and fly over. Once in Twilight Highlands, start on the route I put on my map or unhide the route I've given you with my custom Routes addon.

  • Ok so, as I'm sure you've guessed by now, I'll be spending 30 minutes on this route to give you a general idea of what you can expect to mine and herb up from Twilight Highlands. The routes I've come up with for here are simply amazing in my opinion. There were about five people farming ore and four people farming herbs but I barely noticed them by using my medium length route. Also, almost all herb and mining nodes are far enough away from mobs that you won't pull aggro at all. Any others you can cc the mob, loot the node, and then kill it, or simply de-aggro it and fly away.
  • Pyrite Ore is very plentiful here in Twilight Highlands and you should find a lot of it while farming specially for ore. This route is ore heavy and also finds a good amount along with Rich Elementium.

  • This second one is the smallest and awesome when you have zero competition. Respawns happen almost perfectly as you reach the next node.

  • This last one is a great medium. It's not too long but long enough to help with excessive competition. I typically use my small route to start and extend it if I'm not finding ore like I should be. I used the middle one for this video and guide.

  • This zone is pretty competitive and it helps to farm early morning or very late at night Sunday through Thursday on most servers. You can also try farming during raid times if say, you didn't get in the raid that night or are a PvP'er and don't raid at all anyway. This is usually 7pm to 10pm on most servers but tailor anything I say to your specific server since it can be different.
  • When farming anything, the time of the day and day of the week can matter a lot when trying to avoid competition. Early morning or very late at night Sunday through Thursday seem to be pretty low competition times and days but your server may vary a bit. Even with competition, my routes still work well since you have a few to choose from and these particular Deepholm routes are designed with high competition in mind. Sometimes raid times can be low comp as well which is usually 7pm to 10pm Tuesday & Wednesday. So, if you don't get a spot in this week's raid or are waiting for a spot, try farming a little and see how well you do.

Cata Mining/Herb Combo Gold Making Guide: Twilight Highlands - Best Routes | Mining/Herb - Totals/Recap/Suggestions

  • Alright, looks like my 30 minutes are up so let's see how I did. I was able to get 115 Elementium Ore, 16 Pyrite Ore, 78 Twilight Jasmine, 40 Cinderbloom, and a decent amount of Volatiles. I'll put everything on the Auction House for 12 hours undercutting any competition.

    Detailed List of Items from Mining/Herbalism - Twilight Highlands:
    Mining - Twilight Highlands:
    Pyrite Ore x 16 = 91.2g (5.7g ea.)
    Elementium Ore x 115 = 207g (1.8g ea.)
    Volatile Earth x 4 = 15.2g (3.8g ea.)
    Volatile Water x 1 = 8.9g (8.9g ea.)
    Volatile Fire x 8 = 126.4g (15.8g ea.)
    Alicite x 1 = 7g (7g ea.)
    Zephryte x 2 = 14g (7g ea.)
    Mining Total = 469.7g

    Herbalism - Twilight Highlands:
    Twilight Highlands x 78 = 234g (3g ea.)
    Cinderbloom x 40 = 40g (1g ea.)
    Volatile Life x 33 = 198g (6g ea.)
    Herbalism Total = 472g
    Total = 941.7g in 30 minutes
    or 1,883.4g in one hour.

  • It didn't take but a few hours to sell everything and my total for the 30 minute session was 941.7g or 1,883.4g per hour.
  • Remember these prices are for my server so, to see how your server would work out, plug in prices from the Auction House. I did have about four people herb'ing with me and five people mining so expect better numbers if you're alone in the zone. You can also try and get a little more out of it by smelting bars if they're more gold. Especially check Hardened Elementium Bars and Pyrium Bars since they seem to make a profit by just buying the mats and smelting them. Especially as of late.
  • The best classes to use for farming are Paladin and Druid. DK's with the movement talent are good as well along with other classes for different reasons like vanish from a Rogue or Feign Death from a Hunter. It's also ideal to have 310% flying so if you don't have it, save up some of the gold you make and buy it. It's well worth it. If you have any questions, ask away in the comments.
  • Well, that's it for the fourth video of my Mining/Herbalism Combo Gold Making Series: "Twilight Highlands" - How to Make Gold w/ Mining & Herbalism Combo and I hope you liked it. Some luck is involved with Mining and it may take you a few tries to get use to a new route. Don't be afraid to switch things up and find what zone and path works best for you. And like I've said in just about every video, farming doesn't have to suck. Make it more fun by talking with friends on vent or IRL, blaring some music, watching TV, combine with Dailys, or do whatever is fun for you.
