Khorium Ore is the rare ore in the Outlands. It’s found all over the Outlands except in Hellfire Peninsula and Zangarmarsh. This is a really great ore to farm because it is really valuable. A Khorium Bar can sell for 60 gold. Not a stack, a single bar! You will want to be level 65-70 and have mining at level 375 before trying to farm Khorium. You will also collect a lot of Adamantite while farming Khorium, this sells well on the auction house too.
Update: You can make a lot of gold with Khorium, but if you want to step it up and make thousands of gold you should read my personal favorite guide.
Where to Farm Khorium
Farming Khorium in Nagrand
In my experience, the best place to farm Khorium is in Nagrand. There are a lot of potential Khorium Veins. Each mineral vein that is not a Khorium Vein should be mined in hopes that it will respawn as a Khorium Vein by the time you return on your next pass. Nagrandis a great place because there are so many veins and you will collect a lot of Adamantite while farming Khorium. Follow this mining map for maximum results:
Farming Khorium in Shadowmoon Valley
The next best place to farm Khorium is in Shadowmoon Valley. There aren’t as many veins in Shadowmoon but there is a better chance you will see Khorium. Follow the mining route below, ensuring that you circle Netherwing Ledge, for best results:
Tip: Have you ever wondered how players have so many level 85s or how they can level an 85 so quickly? I use and strongy recommend Zygor's in-game leveling addon which will enable you to level in 5 days of played time. You can find a free version of it here.
