Unobtainable Classic Recipes Are Back!

Cataclysm Timewalking Dungeon Event

Cataclysm Timewalking Dungeon Event:

Available for this week only is the Cataclysm Timewalking Dungeon Event. This event is an excellent opportunity for many of you to obtain some Timewarped badges for Reputation Tokens, Gear, Toys, and recipes reintroduced back into the game.

Alternatively, for a comprehensive guide on the Cataclysm Timewalking Event, check out our trusted friends at Wowhead.


Unobtainable Classic Recipes Are Back:

As mentioned in a previous blog post of mine here, Blizzard has reintroduced nine classic recipes that were unobtainable due to the expansion, Cataclysm. These recipes were unobtainable, due to the removal of specific mobs, quests in Cataclysm. Thanks to Timewalking, we can now purchase these and will cost you 1500 Timewarped Badges each.

Find the vendor Kiatke within Stormwind [76.17] or Orgrimmar [52.41] to purchase them.

Vendor - Kiatke


The Recipes:

Alchemy:
Cooking:
Engineering:
Tailoring:
Leatherworking:

You’ll notice the only recipe to be concerned about, is the Tailoring recipe, Pattern: Robe of Winter Night. This recipe is a Bind on Pickup, so cannot be placed on the Auction House. The others can. Please take extra caution when purchasing these recipes.


Restrictions:

You must meet the level requirement of level 35 or above to view the items available from Kiatke. You cannot bypass this requirement, by participating in Chromie Time and opting to level within Cataclysm.

In order for you to participate in Cataclysm Timewalking Dungeons, you will also need to meet the level 50 or above requirement!

World Event – Brewfest

World Event - Brewfest

Brewfest:

On Monday 20th September (yesterday) saw the long-awaited return of the world event, Brewfest. Participating in the activities available to us during this event gives us many opportunities to make a substantial amount of gold.

Items of interest include the Terrific Tankard O’ Terror, Tremendous Tankard O’ Terror, and the companion pets, Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm, and the Stout Alemental. It’s also worth noting the companion pet, Wolpertinger. This pet is Bind on Pickup, you will need to learn and cage this pet to sell this on the Auction House.

Here’s a reminder of my blog post, Tankards O’ Profit, from last year outlining some of the sales I made by flipping ilvl 82 Tankards.

Wowhead doesn’t have the correct IDs for the ilvl 184 version of the Tankards, so I’ve added links to the ilvl 44 version.  If you’d like to search the Auction House for this specific ilvl, here’s a helpful string;

Tankard O’ terror/i184/i184


Tankards:

The last time Brewfest came to town was towards the end of the expansion, Battle for Azeroth. The Tankards that you could earn throughout that event were better than the crafted Uncanny weapons, meaning that these Tankards were a viable option for newly leveled characters at level 120 (before the level squish). Since the release of Shadowlands, these Tankards have scaled down to level 50, with an ilvl of 82. Funnily enough, these still periodically sell between 35-50k each – I even sold one 4 weeks ago!

ilvl 82 (level 50) Tankard O' Terror Sale

This time around, the Tankards are ilvl 184 (equivalent to Mythic 0 loot) for players at level 60. Sadly, these Tankards are much lower than the weapons you can obtain via world quests, the mission table (depending on your renown level), and Korthian Armaments (depending on RNG).

However, don’t give up hope. Some players are eager to bump up that ilvl as quickly as possible, so there could still be a market for level 60 Tankards; It’s too soon to say either way. This blog post serves as a reminder of the potential gold you could make if there’s still a viable market for these Tankards.


Companion Pets:

We have three companion pets available to us, the Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm (100 Tokens), Stout Alemental (200 Tokens), and the Wolpertinger (200 Tokens).

The aim here is to obtain 500 tokens and either sell the two companion pets on your current realm or learn them, then cage them on your alternative realm to sell. I’ve added some prices to give you an idea of the average region market value for both the U.S and E.U regions.

Region Median prices obtained from TheUndermineJournal

(C) = Companion Pet
(BP) = Battle Pet (caged version)
[#] = Level of the Battle Pet

Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm (C)
  • U.S 15,000g
  • E.U 6,928g
Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm (BP)
  • U.S [01] 3,070g | [25] 7,382g
  • E.U [01] 3,340g | [25] 5,504g

  • E.U [01] 6,095g | [25] 9,319g
Wolpertinger (BP)
  • U.S [01] 81g | [25] 6,989g
  • E.U [01] 1,844g | [25] 8,999g

Disclaimer: These prices serve as a guide and will change a lot over the next couple of weeks while Brewfest is available; check the prices for your realm for a precise valuation.


Brewfest Guide:

For a comprehensive guide to all that’s available during the world event – Brewfest, may I lead you in the direction of Wowhead. This guide has been updated for 9.1 Shadowlands.


Conclusion:

It’s a real shame Blizzard didn’t increase the ilvl of the Tankards, maybe ilvl 200, to coincide with current Korthian Armaments. The fact these Tankards are equivalent to Mythic 0 (ilvl 184) means there’s potentially a low demand for these items. However, Brewfest has only been available for a day, so we’ll need more time to fully evaluate the market.

I’ve managed to purchase a couple of the ilvl 184 Tankards between 300-2500g each to test the waters. I can easily afford to lose this gold, so it’s well worth the risk for me. Remember, only invest the gold; you’re willing to lose!

There could be potential value with lower ilvl Tankards, too, because loot scaling to your level (i.e. ilvl 82 for level 50 players) these items could be of value to players that have purchased a level boost, starting at level 50.

While companion pets/battle pets are a viable option, be warned that the battle pet market is very niche, and sales can take a while.


Before I go:

I just wanted to touch on why I’ve been relatively quiet here; I’ve been playing a lot on my main, trying to obtain as many resources in preparation for patch 9.1.5. With the ability to send resources to our alts, this finally makes it viable for me to play my alts and quickly boost their renown when the patch releases.

I’ve hardly posted auctions either, just concentrated on selling Shadowlands Enchants, Leatherworking, and Cooking on my main. I still have a week till I have to empty and repost my mail on my Auction House characters before they expire. So will possibly add a fortnightly review in a week or two.

Solo Island Expeditions in Patch 9.1.5

Solo Queue Island Expeditions in patch 9.1.5

Solo Queue for Island Expeditions in 9.1.5

Finally, we’ve confirmation that as of patch 9.1.5, it will be possible to queue solo into Island Expeditions. Currently, as of today, you’d need to queue for Island Expeditions with two other players (a team of three) and queue up from the Expedition Table.

When patch 9.1.5 releases, those struggling to create groups, or finding players wanting to farm Island Expedition Transmog efficiently, can do so alone.

Blizzard’s blue post, confirming the addition in patch 9.1.5!

Blue Post on Island Expeditions in 9.1.5


When Will Patch 9.1.5 Release:

There has been no date set for the release, but many people online feel it could be around October. So, maybe expect this to release in or around Hallow’s End, the World Event that starts on the 18th of October.

There’s no addition of the 9.1.5 patch on the Public Test Realm just yet, but keep your eyes peeled!


The Affect on GoldMakers:

With the announcement of players able to queue solo into Island Expeditions, be prepared for an influx of Transmog to reach your Auction House after the new patch hits.

Currently, demand for Island Expedition Transmog is pretty high, and with the low supply of Transmog on many realms, prices are obscene; this is excellent for Goblins

Soon, the supply will increase with the new changes, forcing Goblins to reduce their valuations to guarantee that sale; this will ultimately benefit the customer.

Be sure to adjust promptly, to stay ahead of your competitors!


What Should I Do With My Stock:

If you’re like me and have set up an inventory full of Island Expedition Transmog to sell, and the news today concerns you, start offloading excess items in preparation for the new patch.

When the new patch comes and the Transmog supply increases, you could be stuck with stock; you can’t sell.

Before patch 9.1, I did advise Goblins to consider the size of their inventory, with the possibility of the solo queue coming in 9.1. As we know, the solo queue didn’t happen in patch 9.1, but, with any luck, some of you may have reduced your stock already, as I did!


High-Ticket Items:

If you’re somewhat unsure about reducing your inventory and confident that high-ticket items will hold their value, by all means, hold out. 

I’ll add a list of items below that I regard as high-ticket Transmog.

  • Dragonriders Harness
  • Duskhaven Jacket
  • Duskhaven Top Hat
  • Firekin Amice
  • Firekin Robes
  • Helm of the Tranquil Paths
  • Leggings of the Tranquil Paths
  • Plundered Barbed-Edge Dagger
  • Plundered Biting Shot Longbow
  • Plundered Blade of the Northern Kings
  • Plundered Flamecaster Stave
  • Razorfin Breastplate
  • Razorfin Helm
  • Razorfin Shoulderguards
  • Stinkrot Smasher
  • Vest of the Tranquil Paths
  • Wild Marauder Chainmail
  • Wild Marauder Helm
  • Wild Marauder Pauldrons

Please be aware that this list is subjective, and you may consider items on this list differently. Adjust accordingly and follow your own instincts.


Things to Consider:

It’s worth noting at this point, that although the solo queue will be available in patch 9.1.5, there’s no other news regarding Island Expeditions at this point. Some things worth noting are Drop Rates, Seafarer’s Dubloons, and Salvage Crates. If there are adjustments to these, Transmog may be difficult to obtain again.

Drop Rates:

At the end of your Island Expedition, you will receive loot based on your performance and objectives completed. There’s no information yet, to suggest whether Blizzard will adjust these drop rates on loot obtained. Sometimes, Blizzard will make adjustments on loot, when content is made easier to complete.

Seafarer’s Dubloons:

Seafarer’s Dubloons were added in Island Expeditions to offer players an alternative option to acquire loot, which they were unsuccessful to obtain at the end of their Island Expedition runs. Blizzard could adjust the amount of Dubloons obtained and make it slower to purchase Salvage Crates, etc.

Salvage Crates:

Based on the maps available on that given week, players could spend Dubloons on Salvage Crates. The Salvage Crates would dictate specific loot within. Again, if Blizzard were to adjust the loot tables, drop chance, or the amount of Dubloons needed, this could have a negative effect on Transmog acquired.


An Excellent Guide:

If you’d like a guide, showing the rewards obtained from completing Island Expeditions, then please consider checking this one out from Sanghelios. They give a lot of information on the Salvage Crates and maps needed to obtain specific items. Check it out, and be sure to offer any feedback.


Conclusion:

Many of the comment sections on Wowhead and Facebook already show how happy players are with this news. With players able to efficiently solo queue to farm Island Expeditions, Transmog, which had dwindled in supply, will drastically increase come patch 9.1.5!

It’s imperative that if you don’t want to be lumbered with an inventory full of Island Expedition Transmog, that you consider offloading now. I’ve been doing so since patch 9.1, since Blizzard’s first hint at a solo queue change!

Be sure to check your TSM groups and your operations. In the coming weeks, you will notice changes in the prices as players look to offload their stock!

Please also monitor the potential of any changes mentioned in the Things to Consider segment of this blog. If there are any changes here that could affect drop rates etc, this could have an effect on future Transmog obtained.

Brawl: Comp Stomp

The Return of PvP Brawl: Comp Stomp!

PvP Brawl: Comp Stomp:

If you’ve not noticed already, this week finally sees the return of the beloved PvP Brawl: Comp Stomp! If PvP isn’t quite your cup of tea, or maybe you have no gear, and you’re hesitant to join the fun, don’t; the battlegrounds are extremely easy!


What is a PvP Brawl?

Every week, you can participate in a PvP brawl. The brawls change on a rotation, so there will be different modes available. Check the in-game calendar to view the current or any future Brawls.

This content is strictly for max-level characters only!


What is the PvP Brawl: Comp Stomp?

Set in Arathi Basin, your aim of the game is to cap as many bases as possible and reach 1600 resources before your opponents; doing so will make you and your team the winner.

What’s different is the opponents are AI. If you quickly cap all the bases and successfully reach the Stables (as Horde) or the Farm (as Alliance) before losing any bases, you should be able to push the AI back and camp them in their base.


The AI

The AI is extremely easy, and similar to the AI used in Island Expeditions. Quickly eliminating and interrupting the healers, will make this battleground very efficient!


Arathi Basin Perfection:

As we’re fighting AI, fights can be straightforward. Cap the bases, and target healers pronto, and where necessary, use your interrupts! The Comp Stomp is an excellent opportunity to obtain the problematic achievement: Arathi Basin Perfection.

There’s no pressure or criticism from your teammates. I’m sure you’re aware of the normal PvP toxicity in random battlegrounds? So this is an excellent opportunity to get involved with some PvP with no stress!

Achievement: Arathi Basin Perfection


What Are The Benefits Of The Comp Stomp?

By sweeping across the map and following the directions above, you can efficiently farm, Honor, Conquest, Mark of Honor, and Renown. Each Brawl should last between 3-5 minutes to complete.

Be sure to have your Darkmoon Adventurer’s Guide in your inventory, as you can farm the following Darkmoon Artifacts;


Mark of Honor:

The Comp Stomp is an excellent opportunity if you’re trying to farm Mark of Honor to purchase old PvP sets or old recipes from Battle for Azeroth (i.e. Uncanny recipes).


PvP Gear:

If you don’t have any PvP gear, don’t fear. Use your PvE gear, and try and add items when possible. You will quickly earn your pieces and be under no pressure to fulfill your stats straight away as the AI in Comp Stomp is easy.

If you’d prefer to concentrate on anything, ideally, you’ll be aiming to get a lot of Versatility; this will aid in your damage done and your survivability. Oh, and don’t forget those trinkets, especially the Medallion, which can remove movement impairing effects.


Renown:

If you’re like me and have taken a break from current content, you may find yourself behind on Renown. Thankfully completing PvP content is considered when leveling your Renown. Due to how efficient and quick these Brawls are, we can earn a lot of Renown.

The Comp Stomp is an excellent scenario for players who have fallen behind or changed covenants and need to catch up. In two days, I’ve gone from Renown 20 to Renown 45 and finally have my flying.


Useful Addons:

For those new to PvP, and would love those pesky healers highlighted more in your opposing team, I suggest installing the addon: HHTD alternatively called Healers Have To Die.

Using this addon will highlight a healer with a red cross, and will also play a sound when you’ve successfully targeted a healer.

Fortnightly Sales Report (2nd July – 15th July)

Fortnightly Sales Report

Fortnightly Sales Report (2nd July – 15th July):

Welcome to my fortnightly Sales Report from the 2nd July to 15th July. If this is the first report you’re reading, I hope you can find some value from it, maybe entice you into a new market for gold-making.

I didn’t write this report to boast; it’s more of an opportunity to prove that if I can do it, you can too! Check out what I’ve been selling and incorporate it into your posting routines.

To explain why I only do my reports over a fortnightly time frame, read this post.


TSM Ledger:

If you’re unaware of the TSM Ledger, it is a great tool available from the TSM website. The Ledger collects your purchase and sales data from the app and gives you the freedom to build reports.

If you’ve not used TSM Ledger yet, and you use the TSM app, give the Ledger a try; you can find out some fascinating information about your gold-making.


The Sales Report:

Medallion of the Legion was again integral to a lot of the gold I made this fortnight. I also successfully sold four Reins of the Tamed Bloodfeaster and two Teebu’s Scorching Straight Sword, totaling approximately 800k gold.

I also invested in 273 Medallion of the Legion for 517k gold.

I returned from holiday on the 5th July, hence why sales start from the 6th. Again, I didn’t get to post all the auctions on all characters, but a fantastic return, as outlined below.

My Decision To Continue Playing:

With the recent lawsuit against Activision Blizzard and many streamers and players taking the difficult decision to quit World of Warcraft, I’ve also considered my options and will continue to play.

However, doing so doesn’t mean I do not condemn those responsible for what they’ve done; oh, I do! Instead, I believe, staying, showing support to those that desperately need us, and demand change.

I have offered my support to @ABetterABK and will continue to participate in any future protests/walkouts hoping we can amplify the voices of those affected and show Activision Blizzard that enough is enough.

The ActiBlizzWalkout

Sexual Harassment Lawsuit:

As some of you will be aware, I had recently returned from my family holiday yesterday, but the terrible news regarding Activision Blizzard’s sexual harassment lawsuit hasn’t gone unnoticed. I won’t lie; this came as a big shock to me and maybe others too.

Since I started playing World of Warcraft, the primary incentive to this game was how good World of Warcraft was and how good the people were behind the scenes. They seemed in touch with their community, obviously had a love for a game they created, and I thought they had a family feel around the campus. Sadly, this doesn’t seem to be the case!


The Need For Change!

However, recent developments have shone a different light on Activision Blizzard that not many people (including myself) realized. It’s a sad state of affairs when sexual harassment and unequal pay (Gender Pay Gap) is still an issue in 2021, even after all the work done by many people/organizations campaigning against it.

The last couple of years have shown that many issues still exist within society, whether racism, hate, sexual harassment, and the gender pay gap. The quicker we eliminate these issues, the better society and the community will be in the long run.


Cancel Culture:

I have seen the recent post from Wowhead highlighting Blizzard’s decision to remove in-game references of people mentioned in the lawsuit. I feel this is necessary. However, a minority feels this is ‘cancel culture’ again. It’s worth reminding people that when this news broke, people were that angry; they were canceling their subscriptions, which in turn is ‘cancel culture’ too!

While I agree there needs to be action, I welcome the walkouts that have been organized for today (28th July). Wowhead has also done its part by publishing it on their social media platforms. We need to unite as a community and show that the player base is disgusted, and we’ll not tolerate these actions.

All the details below:

ActiBlizzWalkout


Don’t Cancel Your Subscriptions!

Canceling your subscription will also affect those who were innocent and, significantly, those subjected to this ordeal. By canceling your subscription, not only do Blizzard lose money, but those innocent members of staff, those that were subjected to all this, will also feel the knock-on effect. Let us rise above the hate, show support to those who need it, show your support with the walkout, and demand change!


ActiBlizzWalkout

Show your support with the hashtag: #ActiBlizzWalkout

Please also add the blue heart emoji!


What I Hope:

If Blizzard can acknowledge the lawsuit, rid of the rotten eggs within its company, start paying staff by their ability and not by their sex, and more importantly, treating people like human beings, maybe, just maybe, they can turn a corner.

However, I’m relieved to see WoW Leadership acknowledging the walkout and importantly continuing to pay any member of staff participating in the protest and without any repercussions.

Shuffling: Motes & Primals

Shuffling Motes & Primals

Shuffling Motes & Primals:

Shuffling Motes & Primal’s isn’t something new but a reminder of a market that you can operate in to earn you passive gold on the side of your primary Auction House operations. The benefit here is discovering the value of your Primals on your realm (using TheUndermineJournal) and purchasing cheap Motes, that when combined into Primals, will net you a profit.

Although this guide is for Retail World of Warcraft, you can also use this method within Classic TBC.


What Are Motes and Primals?

Motes and Primals are an elemental crafting material introduced to World of Warcraft in The Burning Crusade (TBC) expansion. These materials were essential for many professions because of the expensive Transmog and materials you could craft.

There are seven different Motes, when you combine 10 of any one Mote, you’ll create a Primal.  Every Mote has been added below, with it’s Primal.

Thanks to the emergence of Relics in Shadowlands, many of these Transmog crafts are now suitable for players leveling characters. The Relic made crafted Transmog an ideal piece of gear, as you could upgrade your piece of armor as you level.


Combining Motes into Primals

It takes 10 Motes to combine into 1 Primal. By dividing the price of a Primal by 10, we know by purchasing a Mote cheaper than this number, we’ll make a profit! There is no value in buying Motes equal to or greater than this number, as we’ll lose gold in the long run after depositing fees.


Examples:

Here is the Regional Median Price (RMP) via TheUndermineJournal for the E.U. Region. I will use two examples here to show a profitable and non-profitable shuffle.

Profitable: Mote of Shadow and Primal Shadow.
Material E.U Median
Mote of Shadow 12g 79s
Material E.U Median
Primal Shadow 178g 00s
Non-Profitable: Mote of Air and Primal Air.
Material E.U Median
Mote of Air 158g 00s
Material E.U Median
Primal Air 1166g 00s

The Results:

The results from the above information suggest that shuffling Mote of Air into a Primal Air isn’t profitable. By dividing the Primal Air into ten, we know 116g is the maximum price we should pay for our Mote of Air. The Mote costs 158g, which is too high – we’d stand to lose gold doing this shuffle!

Alternatively, if we divide a Primal Shadow into ten, it equates to 17g per Mote of Shadow. The price of a Mote of Shadow is 12g, so we’ll profit 5g, which equates to 50g per Primal. 50g doesn’t seem a lot of profit, but that quickly increases depending on the amount of Primals you’re selling. If you were to sell a stack (200) of Primal Shadow, you’d make a 10,000g profit based on the valuations above.


Reminder:

When using TheUndermineJournal yourself to calculate potential profit, you must always use data for your realm. Whenever I use TheUndermineJournal to post examples, I use Regional Market Prices (RMP), an average price across the region because this is an average price.

Using your realm’s data, you will get precise data for your realm, thus returning better results. TheUndermineJournal is an excellent resource for gold-makers, but only if used correctly!


Alternative to Selling Motes & Primals:

If Transmog and selling Motes and Primals doesn’t interest you, and you have an Alchemist, check to see if it’s a Transmute Master. If you don’t have an Alchemist yet, consider creating one and making it a Transmute Master, as Primals are an essential material for some crafts, and you will get a 20% chance to proc an extra craft.

Primal Might:

The best material to craft is Primal Might. This material is also essential for crafting Transmog. You will need one of each of these Primals to craft this.

The E.U. Region Median Price (RMP) for Primal Might is 4,142g. The profit margins are more significant if we can purchase our Motes cheaper than the Primals. But, ultimately, if we’re an Alchemist with Transmute Master, we have a 20% chance to craft an additional Primal Might – this will bump the profit margin up considerably!

Adjust your minimum price to compliment the 20% proc chance as the crafting cost will be slightly less. Non Alchemists will not be able to post as low as us, meaning they can’t compete.


Shopping Scan With TSM:

If you want an easy shopping string, open up the Auction House, click on the Browse tab and enter this string into the search bar;

Mote of Air/exact;Primal Air/exact;Mote of Water/exact;Primal Water/exact;Mote of Shadow/exact;Primal Shadow/exact;Mote of Mana/exact;Primal Mana/exact;Mote of Life/exact;Primal Life/exact;Mote of Earth/exact;Primal Earth/exact;Mote of Fire/exact;Primal Fire/exact

This string will scan the Auction House for any available Motes and Primals.


Cheap Motes Via a Vendor:

There are two vendors that sell a limited supply of Motes. Once these have been purchased, there is a small cooldown until they become available again. It’s rumoured to be a 30 minute cooldown.

The vendors to visit are, Dealer Najeeb, in Netherstorm at coordinates [44.36]. Alternatively, visit Dealer Tariq, within Terrokar Forest, coordinates [39.70].

I leave a bank toon at either of these vendors and using the toy Katy Stampwhistle. Alternatively, if you’re an Engineer use your mailbox (Moll-e) to transfer these motes to your Auction House toon, or crafter.

Fortnightly Sales Report (17th June to 1st July)

The Sales Report:

For the third fortnight running [Medallion of the Legion] was top of the sales report. This fortnight, I made 4.05m gold worth of purchases and earned 7.7m gold in sales, which resulted in a profit of 3.7m gold

I managed to sell 188 [Medallion of the Legion] for a total of 889k5 [Reins of the Tamed Bloodfeaster] for 432k6,801 [Darkmoon Daggermaw] for 267k, and another recipe, [Plans: Masterwork Stormhammer], for 237k. A notable mention is the [Blade of Wizardry] that I sold for 177k.

Overall, it’s been another incredible fortnight’s worth of sales, not bad, considering I couldn’t post all my auctions as I went away on 28th June (as shown in the graph below).

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.
