Secret Gold Makers Farming Spot Discovered by Public
Damn it and double damn it.
My secret farming spot was discovered by the public on my server today.
It’s not exactly a hidden location, but the drops, respawn, and weakness of the mobs was my special pride.
As I was passing today on one of my alts, a skinner/miner gatherer, I discovered my secret was out!
Hundreds of dead turtles lying in my favourite farming spot.
Why farm them?
- XP for level 85/86s
- Spirit of Harmony for level 90s
- Raw Turtle Meat in enough quantities to create baskets and baskets of groceries for the Tillers
- Grey vendor items
- Chance of greens
and for skinners
- Sha-touched leather
- Exotic Leather
- Tiny chance of Magnificent Hide (1-2 per hour)
- Plump Intenstines, with vendor trash or 1g+ inside
As another skinning friend said to me “it’s like christmas!“

How to Farm Wyrmhorn Turtle
- Unless you are level 90, you may be happier in a group.
- Grab one tank/dps, one aoe and one dps/healer.
- Have your aoe’r pull everything in to your tank.
- Repeat until your bags are bursting
Turtle Leather Farming Spot
You can find this spot at a small pond/lake in Valley of the Four Winds. The turtle lake is between Pools of Purity and the Grassy Cline. It’s semi-hidden behind a big rock.
Turtles spawn all over the lake. There are three pulling points. At the far west, the far east, and north east.
If you get bored of turtles, expand into the Mushan slightly south and east of the area. Fly or run to Halfhill Market to dump your loot and leather in the mailbox.
Tips for farming
Bring your Argent Squire (pony up!) with you, or a portable mailbox so you can mail things to your alt/s.
Bring a traveller’s tundra mammoth or guild page or some other vendor with you.
Wyrmhorn Turtle Drops
In 3 hours I amassed 2,000 exotic leather, 7,000 sha-touched, 3 magnificent hides, 100g+ in vendor crap. I spent 2 hours skinning, and 1 hour killing. I got 24 mote of harmony in that hour, and about 1/4 of a level from 85 to 86.
