Best Places to Farm Cobalt Ore as of 8.0

Cobalt Ore–I really don’t have much of a memory with farming this back in the day.

I’m pretty sure it was more of a hassle than any of the other Northrend ore–and I didn’t have a second profession that Cobalt could help boost me in–which means I would’ve stuck with leveling Mining via Saronite Ore instead.

In any case, now days I find myself mining this ore in Howling Fjord due to the zone’s beautiful background music, and the peaceful scenery.

★ Profession Required: Mining
★ Best Serves: Mining, Jewelcrafting

Disclaimer

  • My miner is a Horde druid for faster in-and-out flight.
  • Each zone was timed for 30 minutes.
  • If your mining skill isn’t high enough, you’ll be gathering Cobalt Ore Nugget.

Side Note

  • You have a chance of gathering Crystallized Earth, Crystallized Water, and WotLK gems.

Northrend

Borean Tundra

This is a contested zone.

The downside to this zone is the fact that the ore is so spread out from one another. On top of that, some ore will be at the bottom of the sea, which is a good distance to dive.

  • Cobalt Ore – 152

Howling Fjord

This is a contested zone.

I love the background music in this zone while I’m farming. But one of its flaws (the zone, not the music), are the mountains. You can be flying from one are to the next without any ore in sight. However, that doesn’t mean the zone doesn’t offer ore in various clusters.

  • Cobalt Ore – 175

Zul’Drak

This is a contested zone.

While this zone has the ore bunched closer together, I wasn’t able to get as much Cobalt as I would’ve liked. Keep in mind though, due to the simple nature of the zone and how close these nodes are, you’re liable to have competition.

  • Cobalt Ore – 127
