While collecting cloth for Emava, I used a profession guide to help me find the best places for cloth I hadn’t thought about farming for (see ‘Websites I love tab up at the top). Some I had seen drop while finding loot for Pazima to disenchant (like linen and netherweave) But the one thing that disrupted game play was having to switch between pages to get an idea of the zones if I wanted to do a sweep and see what I could farm close together. So here for my benefit as much as yours is a quick guide to places to farm each cloth type (if you’re not feeling lazy enough to buy it off the ah)
Because I’m mean, this only works for Alliance 🙂
Cloth: Head to Sentinel Hill in Westfall. The battle that is going on means constant respawns of mobs that you can get cloth from. Also they do drop loot you can disenchant too.
Wool: This can be farmed in Wetlands. If you head near the Nelf place there is an ongoing war between whelpstealers and slavehunters, while they are knocking seven shades of shit out of each other, round them up and blast them.
Silk: The place I always had to is Uldaman. You can clear all the mobs up to it (don’t get lost though) and then clear the instance. It helps being a hunter as I can see all the mobs that are waiting to be killed and know when I have done all the outside ones and am ready to head in to the dungeon.
Mageweave: This is one cloth that I’ve never actively farmed. Someone was selling hundreds of it for 5g a stack on the ah so I didn’t need to bother with farming (result) But Zul’Farrak is the place to go, get all the mobs, reset, get all the mobs, reset, get all the mobs… You get the idea.
Runecloth: Hello Hellfire Ramparts! A trip to Outland is required for this one to maximise your farming. Just like the mageweave, keep running it until Blizzard says ‘steady in, let someone else have a go’.
Netherweave: This is where my guide goes completely away from others. The best place for me is Kara. Thousands of mobs to loot, lots of cloth and greens to disenchant. Plus you might even get a mount if you’re lucky!
Frostweave: Bane of my farming life. Icecrown is the place to go. My favourite spot is the Cathedral of Darkness. Those Zelots are ripe for the picking and spawn pretty quickly. I find them better than the Converted Heroes as even though they are in hefty groups of 6-7 you really need to keep mounting up to get to them all quickly. If a Horde knoblett is in the Cathedral then do these.
Embersilk: Tol Barad Peninsula and the Restless Front. The Restless Soldiers and Infantry are bashing each other to death and you can swoop in and help them on their way. It’s a shame that they got rid of the spot in Deepholm where the troggs were. Many a time there would be a variety of levels tentatively moving around each other trying to refrain from attacking the opposition while Embersilk farming. Fun times and the drop rate was amazing.
Windwool: This one is pretty easy, as it drops off any humanoid in Pandaria just go to where there are lots of them! Also don’t forget you can also plant Windshear Cactus Seeds to catch Windwool as it floats past!
