This Wow Mop Mining Guide is the start of a series of guides that teaches you tons of stuff about mining in World of Warcraft. Yes we give you the quick routes but honestly we were looking to go a bit overboard and make this into a huge lasting resource for you.
You can now mine Mop nodes (Ghost Iron, Kyparite, Trillium) from levels 1 – 600. At lower levels you will only receive nuggets of which 10 combined will yield 1 ore. If you’re a high level toon then just mine, mine, mine in the Jade Forest until you reach level 600!
Don’t forget to train! Train at levels 50, 125, 200, 275, 350, 425, and 500.
Mining Guide 1-65: Alliance
For the Alliance the best place to start out regardless if you are human is outside Stormwind. Here, there is a plethora of Copper nodes and a good respawn rate of copper nodes.
Mining Guide 1 – 65: Horde
Tirisfal Glades is by far the best place for the Horde to level the first few levels in Mining. Even if you are not Undead it is worth the time to get to this area for Copper nodes.
Mining Guide 65 – 125
Hillsbrad Foothills is by far the best place to level Mining for Alliance and Horde. It is mostly packed with Tin nodes and sometimes you will get some Silver as well. For Alliance, the closest flight point is in Aerie Point in the Hinterlands which is just a short walk or flight away.
If you’re low on gold, we recommend trying this Gold Guide! We use it!
Mining Guide 125 – 175
The next stop for both Alliance and Horde is Western Plaguelands to Mine Iron. When you are doing this optimized route it is possible that you get a good amount of Gold as well.
Mining Guide 175 – 230
Badlands: This place holds the best Mithril and Truesilver Mining to level from 175 and beyond.
Mining Guide 230 – 275
The next stop in this journey is one that is not forgettable. Thorium in Un’Goro Crater is a complete dream and you will find your self wanting to stay for more because it is so easy.
Mining Guide 275 – 325
Hellfire Peninsula Fel Iron Mining is great provided you have a flying mount. If not, you will need to clear some mobs and travel up some moderate hills which can be a bit challenging.
