Cata Mining Guide 1-525 Leveling Fast & Easy! How to Level Mining 1-525

What’s up guy and girl players of World of
Warcraft. Tarou here bringing you a Mining 1-525 Leveling Guide! For more FREE WoW guides,
check out my website at In this video I’m going to show you how to
level Mining 1-525 the easiest and fastest way possible through farming. A good profession
to level and farm with Mining is Herbalism and some good professions to go with Mining
are Blacksmithing, Jewelcrafting, and Engineering. Engineering can help you get extra items when
Mining nodes as well. Check my website for a guide on that as well. Before you get started, you’ll want to download
the addon, gatherer and its data. Next, get a few Mining bags if you plan to Mine a lot
when you hit 525. I bought four but you really should have three and one normal bag since
gems will fill up your standard bag quickly. If you don’t have the extra gold, just go
with your normal bags but make sure they’re empty. Then, get a glove enchant for +5 to
Mining and some crappy gloves. I like the Gatherer enchant since it’s around 10g. If
the enchant is some astronomical amount like on my server, buy the mats for around 10g
and get someone to enchant your gloves. Lastly, be repaired, have some food/water, blare some
music, and have fun! Now that all the prep is out of the way, learn
Apprentice Mining for your primary profession. Ask a guard in any major city to find out
where the Mining trainer is. Don’t forget to buy a Mining pick from the supply vendor.
Also, make sure your tracking is set to ‘Find Minerals’ and your mini-map is zoomed all
the way out. Alright, you can finally start Mining. You
can level in any starting zone but I’ll be showing Durotar. Throughout the video you’ll
have zone choices and I’ll put all the maps, including Alliance maps, on my website at for easy viewing. After entering Durotar, you’ll just follow
the route on the screen. Before I forget though, open your interface options and check ‘Auto
Loot’. This’ll auto loot everything into your bags without clicking. You’ll want to follow
this route for two laps or until you have around 100 Copper Ore and then head to the
trainer. Then, smelt all the Copper Ore in your bags. Next, learn all available skills
and Journeyman Miner. Journeyman allows you to go to level 150 and try not being a noob
like me and forgetting it. Whoa, Tarou where ya going? Aren’t you forgetting to actually
train Journeyman. There ya go. Turn that Cowtard around. For this next section we’ll head over to Hillsbrad
so hop on the Tirisfal Glades Zep if you’re Horde or fly there if you’re Alliance. As
you can tell, I got the new air mount boots called Airhoofs. Pretty cool right. I can
also disappear. Wha, bam! Where I be? Ok, so you’ve made it to Hillsbrad and basically
here just follow the route like I have it laid out on the map. After you mine up around
50-60 Tin Ore you can smelt it and make some Bronze bars for skill ups. From what I’ve
found though it’s quicker to continue farming believe it or not. Continue on until you reach atleast skill
level 125 which should only take two laps or so. Then, head to the closest Mining trainer
and learn everything available including Expert Miner which will let you get to 225 Mining.
After that, smelt all the Silver Ore you have. Next, head out to Western Plaguelands where
you’ll farm Iron Ore. You may also find Gold Ore but won’t be able to farm it until 150
with the glove enchant or 155 without. No biggy, there shouldn’t be too many. As I say
that I run into one ha. Oh and I just want to mention that being able to fly and level
Mining in the old school zones is a huge boost. If you don’t have a flying mount then just
level Mining as you level your character. After two laps or so you should hit 175 so,
you’ll want to head back to the Mining trainer and learn everything available. Then, smelt
whatever Gold Ore you have. Next, hop on the zep to Orgrimmar for Horde or the boat to
Dustwallow Marsh for Alliance and go to Felwood. This place is filled with Mithril and has
a very easy route. Just follow the route around and you should find all the Mithril you need
plus a Truesilver vein here and there within a lap or so. After you hit 225, head to the
closest Mining trainer and learn everything plus Artisan Miner. For Horde that’ll be Org
and Alliance it’ll be Darkshore. Next, smelt all the Mithril you have, train again, and
smelt any Truesilver Ore into bars. You want to have atleast 230 in Mining with the glove
enchant or 235 without before you leave the trainer. Next, it’s off to Winterspring. One of the
most under rated Mining spots in my opinion. It has a very simple route with both Small
Thorium Veins and Rich Thorium Veins. You won’t be able to tap the Rich ones until 250
with gloves or 255 without but don’t worry it’ll only take half a lap for you to reach
that. This corner is especially nice since it usually has 2 to 4 nodes right next to
each other. Continue Mining until you loop around to Everlook, the neutral town. Inside
there, smelt all your Truesilver and then Thorium Ore. It’ll gray out at 290 so continue
farming from there until you hit 300. Then, go back to Org for Horde or Darkshore for
Alliance and train Master Miner plus anything available. Grats on 300 and as you fly back to Winterspring,
go take a break. Get some cookies or Pizza or both. It’s been a little over 2 hours so
I think you deserve it. After your break, continue mining in Winterspring.
Things should start to green out and it may take a few veins to get skill points but it’s
still faster than going straight to Outlands and farming Fel Iron. It should also only
take a lap or so around the zone so it goes really quick. At 325, return to the Mining trainer and learn
everything available. Next, grab a port to Shattrath from a Mage and fly over into Nagrand.
In Nagrand, follow the route down through the bottom of the zone and only enter caves
that have normal Adamantite Ore since you won’t be able to mine Rich yet. Once you loop
around to Garand, use the little Forge to smelt some Adamantite Ore and reach Mining
340. Naturally if you already got to 340 you can just continue on the route until you hit
350 which should take max two laps. After you hit 350, hearth back to Org or Stormwind
and learn Grand Master Miner along with anything else available. If you have any Eternium,
smelt that and then use it to make Felsteel. You may only get a few points but it’s worth
it. At this point, you’ll also want to empty your bags. I just send everything off to an
alt. Also, make sure to have max three Mining bags for this next part. If you have four
Mining bags, you’ll run out of space from gems and other items as my noob self found
out. Ok, when all your bags are empty and sorted,
grab the zep or boat and head over to Borean Tundra in Northrend. Borean Tundra has a pretty
simple route but it may take you 4 or so laps to get the skill points you need. Nodes are
distanced a bit more than you may be use to especially when there are a few others in
the zone farming. I had three 85’s leveling Mining or farming ore in Borean so, it slowed
me down a bit. Nevertheless it wasn’t too bad and I ended up grabbing a rare Achievement
while I was there. After you hit 395, with gloves or 400 without, fly up over into Sholazar
Basin. Sholazar Basin is a nice change from Borean
Tundra. You’ll start to see decent experience from nodes and they won’t be nearly as distanced
and the only down side is you’ll find Rich Saronite and Titanium nodes that you won’t
be able to mine. Shouldn’t be much of a probelm though since within two laps or so you should
easily hit 425 and be onto Mount Hyjal anyway. After hitting 425 or so, head to the Mining
trainer, learn everything available and Illustrious Grand Master Miner. Make sure you wait until
425 even if you have the glove enchant or you won’t be able to train Illustrious GM. Now that you’re all trained up, head over
to Mount Hyjal by using the portal in your faction’s major city. Mount Hyjal is a pretty
awesome place to mine. Each node is netting 4620 exp which isn’t bad at all. I’m only
level 80 so a few downsides are the mobs rock me in my noob gear and I of course have to
keep my distance from any 85 or I’ll get pwned. I just make sure I’m careful not to get killed
although I almost do right here. On top of that, someone thought they were gonna steal
my node, I don’t think so. That reminds me, always CC the mob, loot the node, and then
kill it. That way if you die you get the ore atleast and also noone can steal it from you
while you fight. As for the route of Mount Hyjal, it’s really simple. Just stick to the
line on the map and you’ll be good. At around 450 you can hearth to Org or Stormwind and
smelt the Obsidium into bars for some skill points. It’s a quick portal back but you won’t
save much time at all so I don’t bother with it. Oh and if you’re wondering, Mining these
Earth Elementals can drop Volatile Earth but they won’t give skill points or exp from Mining
them. As I leveled I noticed I wasn’t finding nearly as many nodes as I should so doing
a quick /who gave me my reason, there were six or more others likely farming along with
about the same Alliance. Even with the high competition, it won’t slow you down too much.
After reaching 475, you can head to Deepholm or Uldum. Since there are a lot of Rich nodes
and level 85s farming in Uldum, I’ll stay in Mount Hyjal but Uldum can be better for
most so I suggest going there for the extra gold from Elementium Ore and better leveling
route. If you stay in Mount Hyjal like me, the last few points will take a couple nodes
but not a big deal really and it goes quick. My guy really sucks and you can see that refected
in the hour it takes to kill a silly Dragonkin. Well, atleast I hit level 81. Mining contributed
to about half the level. My experience per node has gone up to 5732. Not too bad. At around lap 3 or 4, you should hit 500 so
now it’s time to head to Uldum. Hearth back to Org or Stormwind and learn everything that’s
available from the Mining trainer. Next, take the portal to Uldum or fly there if you haven’t
unlocked it yet. And here is the most important thing ever to succeed in leveling Mining,
get rofl stomped by standing in Deathwing’s fire. Or in this case, flying in it. In case
you’re wondering, yes people are flying from all over the zone to stand in the fire, die,
and get the Achievement. Awesomeness at its best. Burn. Anyway, back to the leveling of Mining. The
route I have for Uldum is pretty big but I’m only doing that because of the competition.
This place is packed most of the time. Oh and I don’t think I’ve said this before but
it also pays to have a fast computer. You will always get the node before someone and
be able to fly off without them noticing until it’s too late. Sorry paly, see ya. From time
to time you’ll find some Pyrite which is the Titanium of Cata, the highest ore but you
won’t be able to mine it until 520 with the glove enchant or 525 without. No biggy, you’ll
be there in no time. Sometimes you’ll get a node near these elites and if you’re 85
it’s not really a problem. I’m 81 though so I cyclone the front guy, loot the node, and
book it out of there before I get rocked. I do the same with level 85 Alliance. If you’re
a Shaman, hex won’t work sorry. Uldum’s route is very simple and has some pretty cool surprises.
You can get 4-5 nodes spawning in the same general location like you see here. This can
happen in a few locations but the most common are the ones I marked on the map. Another
thing that can happen while Mining in any zone is phasing problems with nodes. You’ll
see the node on the map but when you get to it, it disappears. Sucks that you can’t get
the ore from it but you can get the skill point and experience. You just gotta be quick. Ok, so after a little over 5 hours, I finally
hit 525 in Mining. Grats to everyone who hit or will hit 525 as well. The last thing you
wanna do is list everything you mined up and see how much gold you made. I’ll list everything
for 12 hours and only smelt bars when the price is worth the time. Alright, it’s been a little over a day and
most stuff sold. Looks like leveling brought in 3,654g + the stuff that didn’t sell so
maybe 4,000g give or take. That’s not too bad since on top of leveling Mining and getting
some gold, you’re also leveling your character if you’re not 85 yet. Mining is also a really
awesome gold maker and if you want to see the best gold making routes for each zone,
check my website for my Mining Gold Making Series. Grats again on 525 in Mining and I hope this
