Why farm Blackfathom Deeps?

There’s a lot of transmog and other gear variety dropped. It’s great for starting out if you want to get into old gear sales.

Materials here aren’t worth very much, but will help you out in your crafting needs.


1. Get BfA Inscription and 20 Scroll of Unlocking per each 10 runs you plan on doing.

2. Use your fastest moving class, preferably a speed twink. See this guide for reference.

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

4. Get either Northrend tailoring and the cloth scavenger perk OR classic skinning. I used skinning, for the data provided in this guide, but neither of these increase your gold per hour significantly.


This is what I got from 100 runs:

  • A whole bunch of different materials, but this isn’t a material farm

  • Lots of transmog and non-transmog gear

  • Some recipes

See this sheet for all the items and gold values.

Expected per hour value:

Raw gold: 690g. Nothing to see here.

Medium sell rate (1 week to 1 month): 4k

Long sell rate (several months up to over a year): 77k (50% of the price for transmog, non-mog gear and recipes)

Total: 81k

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.

You may want to use the same decaying price string for very slow selling materials. <– Route

Getting there:

If you’re Horde, flying there from Orgrimmar is probably the easiest.

If you’re Alliance, you’re wrong. But, besides that, using druid portal from Mount Hyjal should be easiest. If you’re not druid, you’re doubly wrong and you should fix that.

The route:

I didn’t clear anything underwater because it gets my fur wet, and I don’t like it.

We don’t want to kill the bosses mentioned. As, if we don’t, there will be a bunch of mobs spawning when we click the Fire of Aku’mai, in the Moonshrine Sanctum. They won’t spawn if you kill these bosses.

After clearing that room again, Dreamwalk out, vendor mount and Dreamwalk back in.

After getting used to the route, it takes me some 42 minutes to do the 10 runs. I used 45 minutes for the expected gold per hour values.

Final words

Check your server’s item values to see if the farm is worth your time. Anything around or above 30k per hour is ideal.

Don’t farm this 100 times. I did it to gather data and create the guide. Do it 10 or 20 times 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 10 runs of multiple guides is better than 100 runs of one.
