Updated for patch 4.3.
Mithril Ore is another ore that you can mine and sell for a lot on the Auction House. I’ve seen it over 20 gold a stack on my server, you must be mining skill level 175 in order to mine this stuff. If you need help figuring out how to best sell your ores and make the highest profits possible on the Auction House take a look at this Gold Guide.
The three zones I’ve chosen are Felwood, Burning Steppes, and Badlands.
Mithril Ore in Felwood
The route for Felwood is probably the best route to run if you are mining for Mithril Ore. You will run into mobs though, so if you aren’t a very high level character you might want to try one of the other zones instead.
Mithril Ore in Burning Steppes
Burning Steppes is a great zone to mine for Mithril Ore in. I recommend that you check out Dreadmaul Rock for some serious ore in caves. If you do visit this circled area be aware that you will be dismounted most of the time and will have to fight mobs. This probably won’t be an issue if you are a high level but if this doesn’t sound like fun to you, you can always run the big loop instead.
