Farming: Cobra Scales

Farming Cobra Scales Blog Post Cover

Farming Cobra Scales:

Cobra Scales are an essential material needed to craft eight Transmog pieces. Depending on your realm, these can cost between 200g – 1200g each. To increase your profit margins, I suggest farming these materials yourself, unless you can get your Cobra Scales for 200g.


Transmog Crafts:

I’d recommend ignoring the two Leg Armors, as these are a niche craft and don’t sell too often.

Instead, it would be best to consider crafting these six Transmog pieces below; these crafts demand a lot of gold when sold on the Auction House. Check to see if you have the patterns; if not, check the Auction House for the recipes!


Mobs to Farm:

There are three mobs you can farm and skin to obtain Cobra Scales. They are;

Each mob has a 10% chance to yield a Cobra Scale when skinned. It’s best to farm the Twilight Serpents as they’re easy to farm within Nagrand.

Locations 1 and 2

Once you kill and loot a Twilight Serpent, it takes approximately 5-7 minutes to respawn. Thankfully, we have two close locations that will significantly reduce the time waiting for respawns. The locations are Location 1: Warmaul Hill (Twilight Ridge) and Location 2: Forge Camp: Fear (Twilight Ridge).

I’d suggest clearing Location 1: Warmaul Hill, then quickly moving to the Location 2: Forge Camp. Once cleared, return to Location 1, where the Twilight Serpents should have respawned. Rinse and repeat till you reach your goal.


Location One:

Location 1 Farming Cobra Scales

Warmaul Hill (Twilight Ridge) can be found at coordinates [20.35] within Nagrand. You will find approximately 11 Twilight Serpents here. Scattered around the location are Herb and Ore nodes; if you have Herbalism or Mining, consider farming these too! Also in close proximately are Wild Sparrowhawks; consider killing these if you wish.


Location 2:

Location 2 for farming Cobra Scales

The Forge Camp (Twilight Ridge) is located close by at coordinates [11.40] within Nagrand. When you approach the area, you will notice there is a lot of mobs here. There are approximately 13 Twilight Serpents here. If you wish, you can kill everything you see here. There are also Herb and Ore nodes you can farm too.


Valuing Your Cobra Scales:

If you’d prefer to sell the materials, here are some Regional Median Prices (RMP) from TheUndermineJounal (TUJ)

Material E.U Median U.S Median
Cobra Scales 1200g 00s 1200g 00s

Please consider posting a small amount to the Auction House at any one time. Posting high amounts of Cobra Scales will reduce its value considerably – ideally, we want our customers to believe these items are rare and will continue to hold their value!

Although the Cobra Scales are approximately 1200g each (RMP), I would urge caution and significantly reduce that price if you want to make a sale. Anything around the 200g to 400g mark should entice someone to purchase your Cobra Scales.

The prices suggested above by TUJ are simply a guide and are based on regional data. Be sure to enter your specific realm to obtain precise data for your realm.


 The Results:

Here are my results from farming Location 1: Warmaul Hill and Location 2: Forge Camp for one hour. Please note, I only killed and looted Twilight Serpents. If you kill other mobs in the area, you will get considerably more loot than my results. 

It’s essential to remember that RNG can and will record different results.

I have decided not to highlight the results at the top of this blog post to prevent any possibility of clickbait; I hope you appreciate this decision.

Farming: Dark Rune

Farming: Dark Rune Guide

Farming: Dark Rune:

Dark Rune is an essential material needed to craft seven Transmog pieces. The benefit of farming Dark Rune’s yourself is you’ll have significant profit margins when you complete a Transmog sale. However, if you don’t plan on crafting Transmog, these can be excellent materials to sell on the Auction House for other goblins due to their low deposit fees and their vast valuation.


Transmog Crafts:

There are seven Transmog crafts of interest. There is also the Felcloth Bag, but I’ve never managed to sell one, so I’d recommend not bothering with it! Of the seven crafts, four are from Blacksmithing, and three from Tailoring.


Farming: Corin’s Crossing

I’ve been farming Dark Rune since the end of Wrath of the Lich King (WotLK), mainly for crafting Transmog. The best place to farm these materials is within the tiny village in Eastern Plaguelands, called Corin’s Crossing coordinates [55.62].

Corin's Crossing

There are eight different kinds of mobs here,

All these mobs have a slight chance to drop Dark Rune’s and have a low chance to drop other items, including Essence of Undeath. Click the mobs above to view their loot tables.


Farming: An Alternative Option:

Staying within the Eastern Kingdoms, there’s a single cauldron, which you can find at the coordinates [62.76]. There are fewer mobs at the cauldron than Corin’s Crossing, but these mobs are easily grouped up and killed.

The Cauldron

You can see 11 mobs patrolling around the cauldron. These are Dark Summoners and Vile Tutors. According to Wowhead’s data, they have an 11% and a 9% drop rate, respectively. Collect the mobs up and AOE them down. Once they’ve all died, it will take between 2 minutes, 45 seconds, and 3 minutes before they respawn.

During this time, return to Corin’s Crossing.


Valuing Your Dark Rune’s:

If you’d prefer to sell the materials, here are some Regional Median Prices (RMP) from TheUndermineJounal (TUJ). Please consider posting a small amount to the Auction House at any one time. Posting high amounts of Dark Rune’s will reduce its value considerably – ideally, we want our customers to believe these items are rare and will continue to hold their value!

Material E.U Median U.S Median
Dark Rune 1052g 00s 1200g 00s

The prices suggested above by TUJ are simply a guide and are based on regional data. Be sure to enter your specific realm to obtain precise data for your realm. 


The Rares:

When traveling between the cauldron and Corin’s Crossing, keep your eyes peeled for the raresSnort [57.79] (pictured below)Foreman Marcrid [53.68], and Foreman Jerris [55.68]. As these are close by, you may want to kill these for some decent loot.

The Rare, Snort!


The Results:

Here’s the result of farming the cauldronCorin’s Crossing, and the rare, Snot for one hour. It’s important to remind you, that results will vary from player to player, thanks to RNG. I also decided to value my items based on Region Median Price (RMP), so this was an average value for a fairer assessment.

I have decided not to highlight the results at the top of this blog post to prevent any possibility of clickbait; I hope you appreciate this decision.
