Best Places to Farm Ghost Iron Ore as of 8.0

Best Places to Farm Ghost Iron Ore 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 thewowexp.com

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.

Ghost Iron Ore is available in every zone of Pandaria, which is great, because you can choose from multiple zones to farm from, but not all zones will offer a decent amount.

Back when I was with someone, he complained about not enough gold, or needing to get a bunch of Ghost Iron Ore for one profession or another. As almost a joke, I said I could farm it for him on his account. He was pretty gung-ho about the idea, which surprised me.

But lo and behold, he gave me his information and I went about farming on his account while he wasn’t home.

It was pretty awesome, because he was a raider and had a damn high ilvl, so killing rares was simple–unlike on my own character who had no raiding experience and a lower ilvl to go with the lack of expertise.

Pandaria

Kun-Lai Summit

Like in most of the other zones you’re about to see, this one has a lot of places you’re able to farm Ghost Iron in, but I’ve noticed with this zone there’s almost too many locations. It got to the point where I wondered where some of the ore was, because I hit a dry spell. On the other hand, there are a handful of caves that offer a lot of ore. I just never search them.

  • Ghost Iron Ore – 329

Dread Wastes

This…is a very long route and encompasses most of the entire zone–at least around the border of it. It does delve a bit into water areas, but only a small portion. The amount of ore I obtained was quite decent, but while Trillium nodes are RNG-based, shorter routes work best if you’re hunting for them too!

  • Ghost Iron Ore – 312

Valley of the Four Winds

Here’s a break from the longer routes. It’s short and sweet for those that don’t want to fly all over a zone, but this is a place that has a lot of competition. It’s practically the go-to place for mining Ghost Iron, so prepare yourself.

  • Ghost Iron Ore – 530

The Jade Forest

I remember farming this zone in two sections. The lower portion would come close to an alliance area, and I’m not quite sure if this route does the same thing, so keep an eye out. Because there’s not much competition anyway, I decided on one big route.
