Herbalism & Mining Shadowmoon Valley

Guide Overview

Welcome to the RXP Gold Assistant’s Guide to farming Herbalism and Mining in Shadowmoon Valley. 

This zone is a popular endgame area for questing, people getting their flying mounts or raiding Black Temple, so some competition is to be expected. Beware of mobs close to nodes as they are easy to aggro.

The main items you are farming in this guide are: Adamantite Ore, Mote of Earth, Fel Iron Ore, Nightmare Vine, Felweed and Dreaming Glory

We’ve rated this farm as 4/5 which means that there will be high competition and gold per hour can fluctuate substantially.

We hope you enjoy the route and best of luck farming!

Routes & Locations

Know your route

Get used to the route and zone, learning where the nodes are helps a lot. Don’t be afraid to stray from the path if you see the nodes but go right back when you are done gathering.

Where the cones at

Keep an eye on areas with Arakkoa spirits and border with Terokkar for Terocone as that is the popular item for alchemists.

Visit the Netherwing

Make sure to swing by Netherwing Ledge as it often has Rich Adamantite nodes or even Khorium, as for herbalism it is also an area for Mana Thistle.
