Best Places to Farm Dense 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

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.

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.
