Farming Felblight

New item that drops from Tanaan Jungle

Gathered by Fishing, Mining, Herbalism, and Skinning.

You will use this to upgrade all crafted gear from 685 to 700,  (30 Felblight)  and finally from 700 to 715 (60 more Felblight)

Also takes 15 Felblight per epic gem craft.


Felblight drop-rates

It’s still early days, I’m hearing estimates from 2%-10%

I had a few hours in Tanaan yesterday when patch 6.2 was released, first live on Livestream, and then quietly on my afterwards. I did quite well with fishing.



Area is far north west of Jungle, a lake surrounding a near-island peninsula. The peninsula houses a rare (don’t be over-confident that his HP appears low, he’s still not easy to solo, especially if all the adds get involved) and the Epic Gem apexis gemcutter which you need to rescue.  Around the lake there are plenty of easy areas to stand and fish but if you want to avoid mobs, use your fishing raft.  Get here by riding through Ruins of Kra’nak.

Felblight does drop from the Hellfire Citadel moat, but the sludge can be deadly, and the routes up and down the landscape bumps can be irritating when coupled with angry mobs nearby.  Save farming here for when patch 6.2.x drops with your new Draenor Flight ability.




I recommend a mid-high geared boomkin with starfall running around murdering the local wildlife while a friend loots and skins.

Or: similar to the saberstalker rep farm, go in a group and share the drops.




Fel Forge – there are also orcs here to kill and loot, but they don’t drop Felblight.


Withered Herb


I dont have my herbalist in Tanaan yet! I read that Zorammarsh is a good place for herbing, but there are very few withered herbs showing up on the map there. Try The Fel Forge and North of Vol’mar and let me know how you get on?

If you don’t have any gathering, and just don’t feel like fishing, you can get Felblight from Kazzak

    hello again 🙂 i only have 3 alts, 2 in the same realm (allies) and 1 in another realm (horde). this is what i got from a week of doing only garrison misions (i have inn/tavern level 3 on all those characters)

    ally 1: 6780 (+100) gold

    ally 2: 4885 (+560) gold

    horde: 5925 (+350) gold

    that was over a week (7 days, from reset to reset) and considers only garrison follower misión gold. the number in the () is the gold i lost for not having 100% chance in that misión so i had to send it with 1 less treasure hunter. i hope this data help 😀 and i hope your answer. right now i am doing something like that, recording every misión again, but also taking note of how much i get from treasure misions (tavern 3) because right now i dont know whats better between inn/tavern3, barn, trading post 🙁 also dont know if its worth to have salvage yard after the nerf 🙁

    ty again

      Let me give you a list of my sales of “greenies” in the last 30 days.

      These are the items that I have got from salvage crates.

      Usually, players just vendor these. But I put them on the Auction house.

      You can learn how here:

      Here is the list and the prices that I have got for them. Once you see these you will know that despite the nerf, the salvage yard crates are worth a lot of gold. But only if you make the best use of the greenies. Friends don’t let friends vendor greens.

    hi 😀 sorry to ask you here gold queen 😀 but how much gold do u think u can make on a garrison with level 3 inn and lots of treasure hunters per day? i read something about a diminishing returns the more alts you have, what can you tell me about that? thanks 😀

      The Gold Queen says:

      Garrison missions were nerfed, however, it sounds like there are a set number of gold missions per week per account, and after that then the number of gold missions spawning are diminishing.

      That said, if you have 10 lvl 3 garrisons, you will get more gold than if you have 5 garrison, just not as much as 2×5 garrisions.

        thanks for the answer 😀 do you think expecting to make 500g per day on all alts on garrison misions is too much? (assuming i log in to resend misions 2 or 3 times a day for each alt) or what do you think its the number to expect? ty

          my accountant addon is showing I made 6280 from 2 days of garrison work, which does NOT include

          value of trangmog and greenie items
          value of items crafted from small buildings
          value of herbs, ore gathered in garrison
          value of garrison resources that I turned into draenic dust
          value of increasing my ilevel and followers ilvl for increased success in future

          Why not keep a note of your garrison income this week, and then try and improve it next week?
