Why farm this?

A truckload of Mageweave Cloth and Runecloth – 2.5k of EACH per hour. That’s over 5k cloth per hour.

Very decent transmog variety at 97 pieces worth 1k or more.

Good recipes drop here and good non-transmog gear.

Big buck items drop here, such as Teebu’s Blazing Longsword. Not for me, though FeelsBadMan

Preparation

1. Be a druid or monk.

2. Get the appropriate addons to make your life easier. See this guide for reference.

Yields

From 10 hours:

See this sheet for all the items and gold values.

Expected per hour value:

Raw gold: 1000g

Medium sell rate (1 week to 1 month): 9k

Long sell rate (several months up to over a year): 23k (50% of the price for transmog, non-mog gear and recipes)

Total: 33k

If you’re unsure how to go about selling transmog, you can follow this guide. By using the strings and operations I provide, you will eventually sell it.

RIP Relic of the Past shuffle. That would have increased the farm’s value per hour by over 20k. Sadge

The farm:

Perfect setup would be 4 monks and 1 druid.

Setup the monks in the small (perfect) circles I drew. Rushing Jade Wind, Ox Statue. Very smart.

A headless chicken Druid (balance) going around the outer perimeter and killing the mobs not grouped up so that everything spawns quicker.

Loot every 2 minutes. You can setup a timer for this easily with DeadlyBossMods.

If you have that addon, you just create a macro like this: /break 2

Looting the mobs not grouped up is a waste of time. Takes too long, especially for monks, and that’s time you’re looting instead of killing. Ends up being less gold per hour.

Monks are better than any other class to kill the big groups because they apply their damage really fast with Rushing Jade Wind (faster killing) and they pull adds not grouped (faster killing).

They’re also decent at looting everything with their high mobility.

If you’re Druid, do yourself a favor and use this macro: /targetenemy /use Sunfire

/chicken (optional, but you have no sense of humor, if you don’t add this)

Final words

– Don’t farm this as much as me. I did it to gather data and create the guide. Do it for 1 or 2 hours and move on to the next guide. You’ll end up with too many duplicate items. That means your storage will get wrecked. Don’t get your storage wrecked.

– Diversify! Doing 1 hour of multiple guides is better than 10 hours of one.

I’ve started streaming! Follow me and watch the farms live and come hang out! I’m looking for buddies to farm with!

Happy farming 🙂
