Hey there, guys! This is Reckles with WTBGold and BFA is out! And it’s beautiful! And it’s amazing! I didn’t get to max level as fast as some of those Method guys, but I got it on day one and I’m geared enough to start selling Mythic carries. But today we’re talking about skinning. We’re talking about Mistscale and Shimmerscale farming today, but first! Before I give you the spots, there’s three things you need to do. Turn off war mode. I know I know, it’s better, but you can’t skin very many things when you’re dead. Turn that off. Number 2, get the Zandalari or Kul Tiran Glove enchant for skinning. This cuts your cast time for skinning in half. And you know what, while you’re at it, go ahead and get the addon FasterLoot. This makes you so you don’t have a gathering window. You don’t have to wait 3 seconds in between each body. The third thing, this is actually horde only.
There’s a Boon of Bwonsamdi. He’s a Loa, and he’s on the left side, the west side, of the main horde city in Zandalar. Click it and pretty much, whenever you kill a thing, it explodes for damage. I leveled skinning on alliance and I didn’t see anything like this, but if I just missed it, let me know down in the comments if there’s something similar for alliance. It would strike me as odd if there’s not some symmetry there. Alright, the first place we’re going is Hemet Nesingwary’s Gameland and we’re focusing on Feather Viper Hatchlings. So, there’s a world quest where you have to go and kill some eggs. So, because it’s a world quest, these eggs do force spawn, and we’re not actually worried about the vipers. We’re worried about popping the eggs because when you pop the eggs, 4-5 baby vipers spawn and they are just as skinnable as any normal mob.
So, you run around up and down this path, and you try to find places where 4, 6, 10 eggs are kinda grouped together. You pop all of them, and then you’ve got 20, 30, 40, 50 enemies fighting you at once, the boon of bwonsamdi does it’s thing, they all explode, and you just skin until they start despawning on you. It’s absolutely fantastic. In one hour, I got 800 Mistscale, and 2000 shimmerscale, along with stringy loins and a whole bunch of blood-stained bones. What you’re gonna do with all this shimmerscale, is you’re going to send it to your leatherworker, and your leatherworker is going to make shimmerscale armguards out of this.
And this is your expulsom generator pretty much. So, in one hour of farming, you’ll be able to craft 300 or so wrist pieces and that will give you 40-70 expulsom. Second place we’re going is Nazmir. I know this is also a Horde zone, sorry Alliance, there’s just no where good for you to farm. Turn off war mode. But this spot we’re killing Razorjaw Chompers. They’re all along the river, just southeast of the Uldir raid entrance. There’s packs of 6 of these guys and you just group 2 packs together. You AoE everything down. Whenever I got greedy and I tried to get 3 packs together, one of em would always evade on me, so don’t get greedy. And…this spot…see, ok, so here’s the thing, I don’t like this spot because it’s water. You have to go swimming. But it’s technically better. I got 1000 mistscale an hour and 2400 shimmerscale an hour. It’s just better. And also, it’s big enough that if you have competition over at the hemet nesingwary spot, you can come here and even if there’s one or two other people out here, you’re gonna be fine.
It’s a big area. There’s lots of enemies. You’re fine, just tell the other person you get the north and I’ll get the south end, or whatever works for you. Anyways, that’s it! That’s fine. We’re good. So, if these get nerfed. These are good enough that it wouldn’t surprise me if these get nerfed. So let me know down in the comments. If you know of anything that’s better, let me know down in the comments and we can learn and grow together. But that’s it, like this video, subscribe if you want to see more guides in the future and I’ll talk to you guys later. Have a great day, good luck, and happy gold making. .
