If you need a lot of Volatile Water you can either farm it yourself or buy it off the auction house. It’s great to farm to make extra gold because it’s both easy to farm and easy to sell. Each one sells from anywhere between 5 and 20 gold on most realms. They sell well in stacks of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and even 200, but honestly they sell faster in small stacks like 1, 2 and 5. You can farm them in two ways, either with Fishing by fishing in any level 80-85 zone or by killing water elementals.
Update: You can make a lot of gold with Volatile Water, but if you want to step it up and make thousands of gold you should read my personal favorite guide.
Where to Farm Volatile Water
Farming Volatile Water in Twilight Highlands (without Fishing)
The best way to farm Volatile Water without Fishing is by killing water elementals in Twilight Highlands. The Muddied Water Elementals that are located at the river’s mouth (Verrall Delta) in Twilight Highland are about the only water elemtals worth farming Volatile Water from. Here’s a map showing where they are located. Bring some AoE and high level gear and you should be able to plow through the elementals collecting a lot of Volatile Water.
Farming Volatile Water with Fishing
Most of the Volatile Water on the auction house is from Fishing. It’s a slow process to farm Volatile Water this way, but it’s consistent and easy to do without paying much attention. Make sure your character’s Fishing level is maxed out and send them to either Uldum, Twilight Highlands or Mt. Hyjal. Either of these three zones will work just as good as the other. Find a secluded location where no one will bother you and start casting away. It will be slow at first, it takes a long time to farm Volatile Water this way but it’s consistent and reliable. If you’re looking for immediate results, go kill Muddied Water Elementals in Twilight Highlands or farm something else.
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.
