Tin Ore farming guide for Classic WoW

Tin Ore farming

Tin Ore is used to make Bronze, which is used by Engineers to create their tools & gadgets. It is mostly farmed by people who are leveling mining, so the price can vary a bit. Here is an overview:

  • Gold per Hour: ~5-10 gold
  • Competition: low
  • Requirement: Mining skill 65, level ~20

Hillsbrad Foothills

The great thing about Tin Ore farming in this zone is that it is doable by both factions. On the other side, this means that you might get into unwanted contact with the opposing faction. There is always the possibility to go a bit furter north, though, and circle around the alterac mountains. I would recommend the outside of the mountains, because the ogres inside are elite.

Wetlands Tin Ore Farming

While the Wetlands have the most Tin Ore, it is mostly an Alliance zone, making it unsuitable for Horde players. The south-east has most of the tin, which is why the router does not include the marshes of the zone. I recommend going into the two caves to grab some extra ores. In general, caves have lots of ore, so if you can, you should always give them a peak!

The Barrens.

While the Ore in the Barrens is very spead out, you can just do this while you are leveling here, since most Horde players will spend a lot of time here anyway. Try to run past hills and mountains on the way to your next quest, so you don’t loose too much time. This is a Horde zone, so I do not recommend farming here as an Alliance player.
