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

This ore came with the Cataclysm expansion. There aren’t too many places to farm it, but where it can be found, it’s normally found in abundance.

Sometimes the routes were a little tricky for me to master–specifically in the Deepholm region, because there’s a ton of locations for the nodes, but they sometimes show up few and far between if you fly the entire zone.

By the way: Gathering Elementium Ore Nugget means you’re not high enough level to mine the actual ore.
You have a chance to obtain the companion, Elementium Geode.
► You have a chance of gathering Volatile Air, Earth, Fire, and Water.
You have a chance of gathering uncommon Cataclysm gems and rare Cataclysm gems.

  • ► Tol Barad Peninsula and Tol Barad are two places I dismissed, because when I ran them–not only aren’t you capable of flying–there just wasn’t much ore to be gained in a single route.

✩ .. Disclaimer for Farming .. ✩

I jumped on my miner and timed different zones and different routes in order to get the most amount of ore. Keep in mind that I am a HORDE DRUID, which allows me a faster time in grabbing ore, due to instantly popping in and out of flight/aquatic form.

Best routes for farming Elementium Ore

This is a Contested zone.

This place is iffy with the amount of Elementium Ore you can get. This is because there’s a lot of areas that the ore can spawn in, and you just can’t get to every single node in a decent amount of time. It’s kind of a mountainous zone, but it’s not too bad.

  • ♦ Elementium Ore – 49
  • ♦ Pyrite Ore – 12

Best routes for farming Elementium Ore

This is a Contested zone.

This zone offers a simple route that mainly hugs the mountainside–because of it being easy to follow for ore, it’s possible you’ll be finding competition. Even when there’s a bit of a gap from going through the zone, it’s actually where I found the most amount of ore in ten minutes.

  • ♦ Elementium Ore – 82
  • ♦ Pyrite Ore – 10

Best routes for farming Elementium Ore

This is a Contested zone.

There is everywhere in this zone. At least, location-wise. Where the ore is actually spawning is sporadic, which makes this place one of my more hated zones to farm in. I use to left side of the map to farm, but obviously you could make a right side portion as well. I just didn’t.

  • ♦ Elementium Ore – 54
  • ♦ Obsidium Ore – 40
