Best Places to Farm Dense Stone as of 8.0

Dense Stone can be found while mining Thorium Ore, and way back in the day, I was a bit competitive when it came to gathering ore while I was in a guild with some friends.

One of my guildmates was in Un’Goro Crater farming some Thorium Ore, so I decided to head over there on my DK, who had a faster flying speed. While doing laps in front of him, I’d take only the ore from the nodes and leave the stone.

We had a good laugh about it.

Other farmers weren’t too happy. Ahem.

I love farming this location because it nets a ton of Thorium Ore. It also has several ore in underground hives that I don’t go into. Despite this, the amount of ore you can get in this zone is great. Best of all, you don’t get too close to any opposing faction areas.

And I’m actually kind of surprised that it didn’t net as much ore as I’d thought it would. The nodes aren’t as clustered and close together as the ones in Silithus, however it’s a very simplistic route that circles the border of the zone.

This route in Winterspring isn’t a bad one and can net you a lot of ore. This zone has a lot of trees that could get in the way of your finding one of the ore nodes, but that’s the only annoyance.
