WoW Gold Mining Strategy in Legion

Leo Jiang November 23rd, 2016 World of Warcraft    WoW Gold US/Oce    WoW Gold EU    WoW Power Leveling    WoW Help   

The Legion, in World of Warcraft, bring the whole content to the Azeroth called the Broken Isles. Since it is full of dangerous monster, the Broken Isles is only suitable for a player having at least a level 100 character. If not, a high-level gear is necessary.


Where we can farm

In Broken Isles, there are several ways to make a handful the World of Warcraft Gold. We will talk about one of the most effective methods: mining. So far the best spot is located in Surama, in a cave area on the top left-hand corner of the map.


Within a short period of time, you can make a significant amount of ores, it is pretty easy to mine, as the area around the cave is full of several mining sports. Both inside, outside the mining nodes can be found, and even on the top of the cave which is a mountainous area. There are also several mining nodes in a stream nearby.


In this place two types of ore can be gathered by one player. The first one is Felslate ore. It can be sold at a very high price and from these mining spots you can find regularly. A more common ore yet sold at a good price, the second is Leystone, can be found here as well. Because of this, it is no doubt that this location is the best mining spot so far in the World of Warcraft.


However, it only works with two conditions: you need to purchase the Legion expansion and have a powerful character. Enemies around here are quite strong considering that the mightiest monsters live here at present.


Comparing with the past, making World of Warcraft Gold is notably better through mining. Mining nodes are no longer shared with other players. In the past, if somebody else mines them before you, they will be gone. However, these mining nodes are now personal. Even if other players on your server are mining in the same location, it will not be a problem at all.


Recommended Addon

In order to make the gold strategy more efficiently, I will recommend 2 addons for you.



The first one is GatherMate2. It automatically updates a mining location, including herbs, finishing, gas clouds and so on, to the world as well as a mini map after a player gathers that node. In addition, a module containing all gathering locations is also available. As soon as the addon and module are installed, a player should be able to see every mining and gathering locations available and can start making gold right away.


Server Hop

Server Hop was nerfed significantly a few months ago, but when used correctly it is still proven effectively. In the past, a player could join an auto-invite group and transfer to the party’s leader server automatically. Monsters and mining nodes data will be reset at the same time allowing a player to start another round of gathering without having to wait for the res-pawn time.


Fortunately, a lot of people will be grinding and farming in this location making it is still easy to join a group and move to a new server. After it is nerfed, a player can join an auto-invite group and transfer to a new server ONLY IF the party leader is nearby. As the party leader a player needs to be literately in the same zone, which is the Broken Isles in this case.


When many players are playing the game, the best time to use the server hop addon is during peak hours. A player should also be nearby the cave area as well.



The best way to sell Leystone and Felstate for the most profit is through an auction house. Auctionator makes whole process quicker especially in posting and managing items.


There is no need to install this addon in case a player is familiar with a normal auction house function. Though Auctionator is optional.


Faster Mining Strategies

Legion Mining

The enchantment can increase the speed of mining in the Broken Isles. It literately reduces time to mine minerals. There is a new enchant called “Legion Mining”. It is located under “Legion Enchanting” >> “Glove Enchantments”.


Buff from Chief Telemancer Oculeth

The buff helps mining a lot faster because of mobs such as Nightmarish Grizzles that can be found all over the cave area. Getting 50% movement speed bonus for 15 seconds makes the whole mining process faster. Chief Telemancer Oceleth is standing in the base camp of Surama. His buff increases 50% movement speed for 15 seconds after killing an enemy. It lasts for an hour and only works in the Surama area.


Mining Rank

There are 3 mining ranks for Leystone/Felslate Deposit as followings:

• Rank 1 - Increases the amount of material found in the deposit 

• Rank 2 - Chance to find rare materials 

• Rank 3 - Increases the amount of material found in the deposit


The longer a player mines the higher chance of finding the quest item that will increase mining rank. To upgrade a mining rank, a player only needs to mine a particular deposit. It has a small chance to obtain a quest item that increases a mining rank.


Estimated Obtained Gold Per Hour

A player should get around 440 Leystone and 160 Felslate within a full hour of mining. In addition, when sold a player also obtains some cloths and trash items for a hundred of gold.


Leystone can be sold around 25 gold each and Felstate at 75. When calculates everything together (440*25+160*75+100), a player should make around 23k gold when all ores are sold through the auction house.


23k of gold cannot be instantly after an hour of mining since selling the item in an auction house takes time. However, posting these ores in an auction house overnight should give a player at least 15k gold.


Leystone and Felstate can only be obtained by mining. Because of this, they should hold their value pretty well in the long run. There might be a time that these two ores are over gathered making the price drops. However, their price should still be high especially Felstate. At the very least, a player should still make at least 8k Gold per hour from this strategy.


Additional Profit from Infernal Brimstone

In every 3 days of mining, a player has a chance to receive the world quest “Brimstone Destroyer”. It is an oversized inferno that drops 4-7 infernal brimstones. Each stone can be sold at around 500 each or around 2-3000 additional gold per quest.
