Elementium 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.

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.

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.

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 – 295
