Lesser Moonstone can be obtained from either prospecting Tin Ore or Iron Ore. Either way, you’ll be competing with obtaining it over multiple other gems as well. Good news is, also either way, you’re still going to net a decent amount of these, given you have a lot of either ore.

★ .. Farming for Lesser Moonstone .. ★

Farm Tin Ore
If you’re a miner and enjoy farming, then you probably won’t mind spending a lot of your time toying with RNG. To give you an idea of my own personal RNG using my routes for Hillsbrad Foothills:

  • It took me 13 minutes to obtain 5 Lesser Moonstone.

Farm Iron Ore
To give you an idea of my own personal RNG using my routes for Western Plaguelands:

  • It took me 44 minutes to obtain 5 Lesser Moonstone.

So the downside of farming for these gems is the fact that you won’t be getting much of them, even if you do plan on farming for a while.

The upside is you’ll have ore to later prospect.


★ .. Buying and Prospecting .. 

Buy Tin Ore/Iron Ore and Prospect
You’ve got a couple ways of obtaining the ore if you’re not a miner.

First, you can bark in trade chat, meaning you can request Tin Ore/Iron Ore to see if anyone has any. Normally you can buy in bulk from an ore seller at a cheaper (and consistent) price rather than buying random and pricier amounts on the AH.

If there are no sellers of this ore, you still might find someone who farms ore and is willing to help you out.

Second, you can search the AH for Tin Ore/Iron Ore, or even Lesser Moonstone itself. The downsides to this are: they’ll be in a variety of different stacks and it takes 5 ore to prospect; the prices are liable to change constantly, sometimes being cheap, other times being overpriced.

  • Prospecting 200 Tin Ore net me 15 Lesser Moonstone.
  • Prospecting 200 Iron Ore net me 11 Lesser Moonstone.
