Hello and welcome to my first farming spot.. Tonight I am farming Sumptous Fur. even with the end of the expansion coming to a close I still find that this item sells quickly and for a good amount of gold.
There are five places that I know of that you can farm for this without the Skinning Profession.
Killing Frost Wolf
These are level 90 mobs that are tightly packed together. I have farmed here before and I averaged 1 stack of fur for every 15 minutes of farming, which is an awesome effort. Plus they also give leather scarps if you are a Skinner.
I didn’t choose this as my favourite spot for three reasons
- The mobs don’t drop raw gold. So you would need to wait on Auction House sales to get the total amount of gold
- There is a lot of guides for farming in this area and a lot of people still farm in this area
- If you are an alliance on a PVP server you may have a sneaky rogue trying to get that one last expansion gank on you.
Killing Talbulks and Nagrand Prowers.
These are level 98 – 100 beasts and are fairly easy to kill. But every time I go farming at these spots there is either someone farming there already or I have to keep one eye on my health bar (don’t forget I am only an ilvl 690 shammy)
Spires of Arak
There are two places to go in the spires to farm for Fur these are: Echo Hunters and Bloodmane Mobs.
These are level 96 mobs and easy kills but again when I farmed them I found that I had to wait on the mobs to re-spawn and I just could not find a right farming grove to farm in.
I could not find a nice little piece of dirt that I could call my own and run around killing mobs. Farming here is to run to one end killing everything and run back with nothing to kill and I got bored… I blame my quick chain lighting trigger finger for this.
Killing Daggerjaw mobs around the lake of Vol’jin Pride.
This was fun on my Hunter and on my Pally and even on my Warrior, Warlock and Priest but after leveling all of these charaters and farming this area I think if the mobs saw Rhiamon fly in and start killing them they would just roll there eyes and put up signs saying “Please farm somwhere else”….so i did
And this takes us to my favourite sport
Nestled high in the Gorgrond High Pass Mountains are mobs called Steamscar mobs.
These are level 93 mobs. easy to kill and re-spawn pretty regularly.
This place has an awesome circuit that you can just farm and get lost in for hours at a time and once you have finished one lap these guys are ready to kill again.
They have a 73% drop rate of fur which is higher than Frostfire ridge (50% drop rate) and also drop greens and around 40 silver per kill
On Twitch I farmed these for 30 Minutes and this is what I received from that time
77 raw gold
170 Sumptuous Fur @ 1g 66s (on my server) = 282g
104g worth of Greens that were vendors
45g of Grays that were Vendored
All this adds up to 508Gold per 30 minutes
1016 gold per hour
Two tips on farming this spot:
- If someone else is farming here and you both just cant farm at the same time use the Cross Server group finder to jump around until you find a nice server.Or try Frostfire ridge or Talador
- Remember to kill the mobs and not be too interested in taking selfies
I am interested to know.. have you farmed in this spot before or do you have another spot that you like to farm Sumptuous Fur?
Do you farm in Frostfire Ridge then just sit back and wait for the gold to roll in?
Would you like to me to review your favourite farming spot for fur or anything else?
Feel free to leave a comment here, on Twitter or on facebook or drop in with a cup of tea and say Hi at 7.30pm Wednesday night AEST where I will be hopefully showing an awesome spot for farming 500 raw gold in 20 mins
