Best Places to Farm Tin Ore as of 8.0

Best Places to Farm Tin Ore as of 8.0

The time has come.

I’ve got several websites I take care of, and it’s getting harder to pay for all of them, on top of everything else I have to pay for. With that being said, this is not a good-bye to all of you; it’s merely a good-bye to thewowexp.com

It’ll always be my title, no matter what, but it’s time for a merge.

I already own two gaming websites, and there’s no need for that. So thewowexp’s posts will be merging onto my other website, The Gaming Experience (or TGEXP for short). I create game reviews and guides, so it’s still basically the same thing, just not a specific niche, which is what thewowexp was.

I don’t know when everything will migrate. Just know that it will happen soon.

Sorry everyone, but bills have to be paid, and money has to be saved.

Tin Ore will forever, and possibly always, be mined by me via Hillsbrad Foothills.

There’s not only a lot of it to be found, but also Silver Ore, and there’s also a ton of rare mobs that you could run into by following my routes, or even just floundering around the zone in search of the nodes. I’m pretty sure the rare mobs drop transmog items that sell for a hefty amount–but that’s all RNG-based.

When I first started mining this ore, I stuck with the Stranglethorn zone.

I was in that zone so much, I just wasn’t feeling it anymore. Trees, trees, trees.

I needed a change of scenery.

And for some reason Hillsbrad helped with that. Maybe because it’s more of an open area.

Side Note

Social Media

Eastern Kingdoms

Hillsbrad Foothills

This is a horde zone.

This zone can net you a ton of Tin Ore, but in saying that, there’s going to possibly be a lot of competition coming your way. While I don’t personally go into caves, if you find competition on the outside, try going into the caves and nabbing the ore, as most farmers won’t bother.

  • Tin Ore – 350

Kalimdor

Ashenvale

This is a contested zone.

Worst part about this zone? The trees. Best part about this zone? The amount of Tin Ore acquired. You’ll have less competition here because it’s not much of an open area as Hillsbrad is.

  • Tin Ore – 316

Stonetalon Mountains

This is a contested zone.

I had to improvise a bit with this map, because I didn’t want to get too close to any faction bases. I like this location due to the fact you’re not flying your way through huge masses of trees.

  • Tin Ore – 211
