Best Places to Farm Coarse Stone 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.

Coarse Stone can be found while mining Tin Ore, as well as among a few other types of ore, but since those don’t drop as much, they won’t be mentioned. Like most stones, I never really bothered with this one too much. It was simply fodder for a profession or thrown to the AH wolves.

Hillsbrad Foothills

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.

Ashenvale

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.

Stonetalon Mountains

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.
