Best Places to Farm Thorium Ore as of 8.0

Best Places to Farm Thorium Ore as of 8.0

Thorium Ore was my favorite ore to mine in the WotLK era.

Back when I was in my friends’ guild, Politically Incorrect, me and a fellow miner would always be going at it with mining ore.

I had a Death Knight to do my farming, and back then our speed was faster than most, so I’d be able to beat him to nodes.

But when me and him weren’t racing for ore, I’d be in Un’Goro Crater. I was also the one that liked to stir up a bit of mischief with my mining.

Within these nodes, there’s also Dense Stone. I never had a use for it back then, so I didn’t think there was much point in gathering it. With my autoloot turned off, I started manually collecting the ore and gems, but passing up the stone.

Meaning, anyone farming behind me were only getting stone, nothing else.

Good times, good times.

Kalimdor

Silithus

This is a contested zone.

I love farming this location because it nets a ton of Thorium Ore. It also has several ore in underground hives that I don’t go into. Despite this, the amount of ore you can get in this zone is great. Best of all, you don’t get too close to any opposing faction areas.

  • Thorium Ore – 399

Un’Goro Crater

This is a contested zone.

And I’m actually kind of surprised that it didn’t net as much ore as I’d thought it would. The nodes aren’t as clustered and close together as the ones in Silithus, however it’s a very simplistic route that circles the border of the zone.

  • Thorium Ore – 358

Winterspring

This is a contested zone.

This route in Winterspring isn’t a bad one and can net you a lot of ore. This zone has a lot of trees that could get in the way of your finding one of the ore nodes, but that’s the only annoyance.

  • Thorium Ore – 357
