Rough Stone can be found while mining Copper Ore, and…well, it’s certainly not the best item in the game for selling or making some nice items that people may want. It’s more of fodder for leveling an alternate profession.

★ Profession Required: Mining
★ Best Serves: Blacksmithing, Engineering

Disclaimer: My miner is a Horde druid for faster in-and-out flight.
Each zone was timed until I acquired 200 Rough Stone.
► Rough Stone comes from Copper Ore nodes, thus the routes section is the same as the Copper Ore post.

 .. Eastern Kingdoms .. ✩

Elwynn Forest

This is an Alliance zone.

As such, with the route in question, I tried to avoid any contact with guards, though you’ll want to be careful flying over the road leading to Stormwind. Sometimes there are patrols going back and forth. This route can be traveled with a ground mount for lower levels–there may be some locations you won’t be able to get to, but not many. This zone is normally farmed by a few people at once.

✩ .. Kalimdor .. ✩

Azshara

This is a Horde zone.

This is not a ground-mount friendly route due to all the cliffs and such. There’s also a small phased zone you may enter, where you could find a Copper Ore node, but not be able to mine it. Just move on if that’s the case.

Darkshore

This is an Alliance zone.

This is the best place to farm Copper Ore, in my opinion (especially when there’s no competition about). It’s not ground-mount friendly due to all the fissures in the land, but even if you’re a low level, there’s Copper Ore to be had everywhere you go.

Durotar

This is a Horde zone.

This route does go over a Horde area, so Alliance players beware of that. Also, while a good portion of this route could be followed by ground-mounts, I wouldn’t worry too much if you’re a lower level, because there’s Copper Ore damn near everywhere. This zone will be likely farmed by a few different people.

Mulgore

This is a Horde zone.

This is one of the more simple routes when it comes to mining Copper Ore in a zone. It’s not so much that you even need a route to look at, you simply have to follow along the mountain-side.
