Eastern Plaguelands

Originally, this had been made into two routes, to separate the different ore. However, because the ore didn’t respawn as quickly as I would’ve liked, it’s an entire route instead. But it works. It nets you a different variety of ore instead.

  • ♦ Gold Ore – 13

Western Plaguelands

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.

Desolace

The 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 – 16

Felwood

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 this ore as well as a variety of other ore you might be looking for now, or in the near future.

  • ♦ Gold Ore – 18

Feralas

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 this ore as well as a variety of other ore you might be looking for now, or in the near future.
