Farming Khorium Ore in Warcraft

Farming Khorium

Khorium ore is a rare ore that spawns in Adamantite nodes in Outland, the Burning Crusade continent in World of Warcraft.


Best place to farm Khorium Ore in World of Warcraft

Hands down: Nagrand, Outland.

Get yourself an ore/herb mapping addon like Gatherer or Gathermate and find your route and get flying.

Mine every mineral vein that is not Khorium vein.  When you mine an Adamantite node, it can respawn as a Khorium ore node and be available to mine next time you fly past.

Nagrand is ideal for this because there are so many adamantite ore spawn spots which can repop as a khorium ore vein.

You’ll collect loads of adamantite ore from the veins when you are hunting for Khorium.


What to do with your Adamantite

Once upon a time I would encourage you to prospect Adamantite to hunt for Golden Draenites.  Now it looks like these are being removed from the flying carpet mount in Battle for Azeroth, so prospecting is not quite as profitable as it once was.

Instead try some blacksmithing and engineering work:

Shadesteel Armor Set

Adamantite Battlegear

Farming More Khorium Ore

If you get bored of Nagrand, other places to farm are Shadowmoon Valley and Sunwell Isle.

I do well in Sunwell Isle, probably because no one else goes there. If your Sunwell isle is not lucky for you, try the Shadowmoon Valley (Outland) route.


Here comes the tweetable!

Buying Khorium Ore for Resale on the Auction House

Notice the little (!) next to the Standard Deviation value? It means all sorts of things, but to us as goldmakers it signals GOLD.  This is a price that is volatile and fluctuates wildly. That means you can get Khorium Ore cheaply on the AH and you can sell it for a high price.

Buying a cheap item and reselling it for a higher price is called ‘Flipping

With these particular figures I’d be looking to Buy Khorium at 962g (current) minus 331g (std dev) = 600g ish.

With these figures, I’d be looking to sell Khorium between 1343g (highest number in information) and 1500g  (Mean, rounded up by approx the std dev).  1340g-1500g
