Iron Ore was never really a spectacular item that I went around mining. I think it was more of a filler item to get my profession leveled for the better ore I’d be finding later on. Unfortunately, there’s nothing spectacular to say with this one.

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.

★ Each zone was timed for 10 minutes.
★ If your mining skill isn’t high enough, you’ll be gathering Iron Ore Nugget.


 .. Eastern Kingdoms .. ✩

Eastern Plaguelands

This is a Contested zone.

At first I was going to make two routes with this zone, but the nodes weren’t respawning fast enough to make it worthwhile. Which means, on top of Iron Ore, you’ll also be getting a decent amount of Mithril Ore as well, in the upper section.

  • ♦ Gold Ore – 2
  • ♦ Heavy Stone – 83
  • ♦ Iron Ore – 68
  • ♦ Mithril Ore – 57
  • ♦ Solid Stone – 73

Western Plaguelands

This is a Contested zone.

I had a lot of competition in this zone, but managed to get a good amount of ore from the run. Be on the lookout for rares you may come across. Also, there is that one alliance bit you’ll be flying over. Just keep your distance up ahead.

  • ♦ Gold Ore – 7
  • ♦ Heavy Stone – 159
  • ♦ Iron Ore – 132

Desolace

This is a Contested zone.

The Iron Ore in this area is a bit more sporadic than in other zones listed, which is why I wasn’t able to obtain as much. But if you’re finding too much competition in the other places, this one is a good backup route.

  • ♦ Gold Ore – 5
  • ♦ Heavy Stone – 120
  • ♦ Iron Ore – 96
  • ♦ Silver Ore – 4

Feralas

This is a Contested zone.

Nothing much to say on this route. There wasn’t any competition when I was flying around, and it nets you a nice chunk of Iron Ore as well as a variety of other ore you might be looking for now, or in the near future.

  • ♦ Gold Ore – 2
  • ♦ Heavy Stone – 151
  • ♦ Iron Ore – 123
  • ♦ Mithril Ore – 9
  • ♦ Silver Ore – 10
  • ♦ Solid Stone – 4
