The starting area of the Undead, Lordaeron also holds some great places to grind for those higher level players. Here is all you need to know about grinding in this area of the game.

    Eastern Plaguelands

    In the Eastern Plaguelands are a couple of groups of elementals that are great to farm. They have a pretty steady rate of dropping Essence of Water, which will bring around 13-15g each on AH. Most people don’t know about this, but they do spawn quickly, so you can just walk around in circles on the lake and farm them. Another good reason to farm them is that they often drop great loot, such as a globe of water, green items, blue items, purple items, and even a Lifestone or two, which sell for 170+g each.

    In the Eastern Plaguelands, you’ll find the Carrion Devourer and Carrion Grubs, which range from level 54-57. These drop Larval Acid which sells for 10g each in the AH. If you are in the 60+ level range and you can kill these quickly, you can earn up to 40g per hour, as they usually drop 3-4 an hour here.

    In the Southwestern corner of the Eastern Plaguelands, you’ll find The Undercroft, where the Mossflayer Zombies live. These mobs don’t really drop anything all that special, but they are really weak and easy. The do respawn fast and drop lots of silver and a good amount of Runecloth, so farming them isn’t too bad.

    There are Plaguebats that roam all over the southern most areas of the Eastern Plaguelands. While normally, it’s not a big deal to farm these mobs, when the Darkmoon Faire is around, they drop Evil Bat Eyes which are part of a Darkmoon Faire quest. So, you can sell them pretty well on AH during the Faire. Plus, you can skin them as well, earning lots of leather to sell.

    In the Eastern Plaguelands, you’ll find the Carrion Devourer and Carrion Grubs, which range from level 54-57. These drop Larval Acid which sells for 10g each in the AH. If you are in the 60+ level range and you can kill these quickly, you can earn up to 40g per hour, as they usually drop 3-4 an hour here.

    While you’re in the Eastern Plaguelands, you can always head over to Brownan Mill. The mobs here are level 57-60 and drop a ton of Runecloth. You can pull them one at a time and you’ll get silver and cloth just about every time. Sometimes you can get some other great loot, like Invader Scourgestones, gray items that sell great to vendors (like over 1g each), some good green items, and a lot of potions. It’s easy to make 15-45g per hour here. And, if you are an herbalist, you can find a ton of black lotus here, which sells for 1-5g each, Plaguebloom, Mt. Silversage, and even some Dreamfoil. So you can earn a ton of money here.

    Silithus

    In Silithus, you’ll find Air Elementals which constantly drop Essence of Air. This is the only place in the game where this drops, and makes it worth farming. Although they range in level from 56-59, you should only kill one at a time, no matter what level you are. But, they drop the following items which can all earn you some great gold on the AH: Elemental Air – 24s each, Breath of Wind – 1-2g each, and Essence of Air – 25g each. Sometimes the don’t drop a thing, so you might have to kill a few before you see the goods, but it’s worth it.

    While you’re in Silithus, there is always the Scorpids for grinding. These mobs are all over the game, but the best place for Glowing Scorpid Blood to drop is in Silithus. This loot is good for a quest at the Darkmoon Faire, and the best part is, you can turn in as many as you want and still earn tickets for them. You can generally farm these and then sell them on the AH for 1-2g each, not per stack, but per item. The only thing is that you have to be careful when pulling these, as sometimes you can pull more than one and they can overwhelm you easily that way. You will double your income with these if you are a skinner, as they always have rugged leather or Scorpid scales. Occasionally, you’ll get a great drop off of these, but it’s pretty rare.

    Also in Silithus, you’ll find the Twilight Cultists. These mobs range in the high 50’s to 60, and drop Twilight Texts at about 15-20 per hour. You can normally sell these on the AH for 1-2g each, and selling them in stacks of 10 will help to increase your sales as these are used for a quest in Cenarion Hold. These mobs also drop money, some vendor loot, the occational green, and also Twilight Cultist gear, which generally goes for between 1-2g each.

    Western Plaguelands

    Just past the Bulwark in the Western Plaguelands, you’ll find Felstone Field. There are a ton of weaker, undead mobs that are easy to kill and drop a ton of Runecloth. These mobs range in the mid-30’s, so soloing them isn’t hard either. They also spawn rapidly, so you don’t have to worry about waiting or other players.

    In the Northwestern Plaguelands is the Scarlet city of Hearthglen. Here you’ll find some pretty easy elites that range from 53-56 and are just higher level versions of the Scarlet Priests, Scarlet Sentinels, Scarlet Paladins, and so on. They do drop a lot of Runecloth, but the reason to head here is for the other drops. They have a very good drop rate for green, blue, and even epic items that sell great on the AH.

    On your way through Hearthglen, you’ll find a tower where the Scarlet Spellbinders are. These are the only mobs in the game that drop the formula for Enchant Weapon – Crusader. This formula alone will sell for over 200g on the AH and is pretty rare. You do have to watch for other players here, as the mobs spawn at a fair rate, the drops aren’t always as fast to spawn.

    In the eastern-most part of the Western Plaguelands, you’ll find The Weeping Cave. In this cave, you’ll see the Rotting Behemouths and the Decaying Horrors, which range from level 55-57. These mobs are easy to kill and have a really great drop rate for all sorts of items. You’ll find the recipe for Greater Nature Protection Potion here, which sells for about 100g. The drop rate for this potion is only about 1 per 100 kills though, so you might have to grind for a bit to get one, but it’s worth it!
