Nerfed my nodes, did you?!

Well, if you're a gatherer of any kind, I'm sure you've noticed the nerf to the spawn rates and the amount per zone, there has been a lot more competition when farming for ore and herbs. In my case, I dropped herbalism and went back to jewel-crafting in preparation to min/max for raiding. 

Luckily in this case, this is a good thing for me. There is a cave in Twilight Highlands (Elementium Depths) that is a miner's paradise! There is usually ~5 nodes in the cave at all times. The thing is, with SO many people out in the Twilight Highlands mining the nodes are constantly respawning. 

Here is the map for the location of the cave. The entrance is located at 37,88.


The route is very simple. Enter the cave, follow your way all the way down, loop around, and repeat it on your way back up. Do as many rounds as you can, nodes are always respawning. During peak hours I suggest just staying in the cave and letting the nodes respawn for you.

Lock Picking

If you are also rogue, we get a little bonus here; lockboxes. Why farm lock boxes? Well for one they have new bind on pickup potions but the best reason is BOE epics. The lockbox you will be getting from these mobs is called Flame-Scarred Junkbox - Item - World of Warcraft

Contains one of three possible BOE epics. 

Spinerender - Spinerender - Item - World of Warcraft
The Twilight Blade - The Twilight Blade - Item - World of Warcraft
Krol Decapitator - Krol Decapitator - Item - World of Warcraft

Macro for easy farming: 

#showtooltip Pick Pocket
/targetenemy [harm,nodead]

/use [nostealth,combat]Vanish;[nostealth]Stealth;Pick Pocket

Just put that on your stealth bar and target an enemy. Once an enemy is target just spam it and it will cycle through all harmful mobs nearby and will pickpocket them. It is great! 


If you are not a stealth class you need to kill some mobs in order to mine inside this cave. Luckily, they have a very high drop rate of Embersilk Cloth. One of the mobs you will be killing is Depths Overseeer (Depths Overseer - NPC - World of Warcraft) which has over a 40% drop rate of 1-4 cloth.
