Farming Ghost Iron Ore

Ghost Iron Ore (made into Ghost Iron Bars) is the first tier ore found in Mists of Pandaria. It’s the equivalent of Cobalt Ore from Wrath and Obsidium Ore in Cataclysm. It will be combined in mass by new Blacksmiths into Folded Ghost Iron Ore and prospected by Jewelcrafters into gems. Since Kyparite doesn’t work […]

Farming Kyparite

Kyparite (formerly Manticyte Ore early in the beta) is the mid tier ore coming in Mists of Pandaria. Despite its the mid-tier ore in Pandaria, it’s not the same as Elementium because it’s much more rare and used in only a few Blacksmithing and Engineering recipes. It will possibly be used for prospecting as well. […]

Farming Trillium Ore

The new rare ore in Mists of Pandaria is called Trillium Ore. It’s the equivalent to Wrath’s Titanium and Cataclysm’s Pyrite Ore.

Farming Adamantite Ore

Adamantite is the mid level ore in the Outlands. It’s found in most Outland zones except Zangarmarsh and Hellfire Peninsula. It sells very slowly but can be worth 5-10 gold each if no one else is selling it on the auction house. It’s best to sell these in stacks of 20 so that you can […]
