Best Places to Farm Spider’s Silk as of 8.0

Best Places to Farm Spider’s Silk as of 8.0

Spider’s Silk is one of the more rare kinds of silk that tailors will need to gather in order to craft some equipment. Said equipment is mainly for transmog looks, and can also go for quite a bit on the AH, depending on your realm, so if the prices for the silk are on the cheap side, I’d grab them.

Then again, if the Spider’s Silk is on the high end, I’d nudge people to buy them instead.

Who likes to farm disgusting spiders, right?

 .. Eastern Kingdoms .. ✩

Duskwood

This zone is full of a variety of spiders that can drop silk for you, however that doesn’t mean they’ll drop more often. Plus, you’ve got players that quest for some of these spiders, so there can be competition, without them really wanting to compete with you. Another downside of this zone is all the trees. They can get in your way damn near all the time.

Ashenvale

This is a pretty short and simple route to take when it comes down to it. You don’t have much trees in the way, which is one of the reasons this is my favorite route to farm. Also, not many people come here–most flock to Duskwood where they know a lot of the spiders reside.
