Best Places to Farm Tin Ore as of 8.0

Tin Ore will forever, and possibly always, be mined by me via Hillsbrad Foothills.

There’s not only a lot of it to be found, but also Silver Ore, and there’s also a ton of rare mobs that you could run into by following my routes, or even just floundering around the zone in search of the nodes. I’m pretty sure the rare mobs drop transmog items that sell for a hefty amount–but that’s all RNG-based.

When I first started mining this ore, I stuck with the Stranglethorn zone.

I was in that zone so much, I just wasn’t feeling it anymore. Trees, trees, trees.

I needed a change of scenery.

And for some reason Hillsbrad helped with that. Maybe because it’s more of an open area.

Hillsbrad Foothills

This is a horde zone.

This zone can net you a ton of Tin Ore, but in saying that, there’s going to possibly be a lot of competition coming your way. While I don’t personally go into caves, if you find competition on the outside, try going into the caves and nabbing the ore, as most farmers won’t bother.

This is a contested zone.

Worst part about this zone? The trees. Best part about this zone? The amount of Tin Ore acquired. You’ll have less competition here because it’s not much of an open area as Hillsbrad is.

Stonetalon Mountains

This is a contested zone.

I had to improvise a bit with this map, because I didn’t want to get too close to any faction bases. I like this location due to the fact you’re not flying your way through huge masses of trees.
