Best Places to Farm Khorium Ore as of 8.0

Best Places to Farm Khorium 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

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.

Khorium Ore.

Man this takes me back to when I would get excited when I found a node. I’d spend hours on the hunt for just this one rare ore, and rare it is.

There would be so much competition back then for this ore–and half the time it wasn’t to sell to people on the AH, but to level up Engineering or Blacksmithing or even Jewelcrafting (I guess?). The race to find it, the urge to get that Adamantite/Fel Iron ore before that person who’s flying neck-and-neck with you.

Nostalgia only miners will know of.

Blade’s Edge Mountains

This is a contested zone.

This zone can be obnoxious with it’s ups and downs going over the rocky spires and such, but I tried to get a route down that wouldn’t be much of a hassle and still accumulate a fair amount of ore.

Total time: 43:17

  • Khorium Ore – 15

Nagrand (Routes 1 & 2)

This is a contested zone.

I remember when I used to farm this zone constantly in order to find Khorium Ore, because everyone said it was the best place. It’s really not, unless you plan to flounder around the entire zone and enter ever cave.

Total time for Route 1: 1:08:44

  • Khorium Ore – 10

Total time for Route 2: 50:15

  • Khorium Ore – 10

Terokkar Forest

This is a contested zone.

Everyone talks about Nagrand being so…well…grand. But while I traveled the route, I didn’t find a single Khorium in twenty minutes. But Terokkar was a definite winner in my eyes for this rare ore! Less than thirty minutes, I was able to get 10+ Khorium. The nodes either gave me two or three ore.

Total time: 41:35

  • Khorium Ore – 15
