Updated for patch 4.3.
Tin Ore is the next list you’ll be exposed to and may even be exposed to some Tin Veins while mining Copper. You must be mining skill level 65 in order to mine Tin. As I know it can be quite frustrating mining for gold at times I thought you may be interested in this Gold Guide which shows you how to maximize your gold profits.
There are quite a few zones to get Tin so I’m going to focus on two of the best. They each happen to be on different continents so essentially I’ve made one per continent in case you are unable to freely travel or don’t feel like it. The two zones I choose for mining Tin are Hillsbrad Foothills and Ashenvale.
Tin Ore in Ashenvale
This is an easy route to follow but it is a big more lengthy of a run/flight so if you don’t like what you see here take a look at the next map for Hillsbrad Foothills.
Tin Ore in Hillsbrad Foothills
The next location up is Hillsbrad Foothills, the mobs will range from 20-25 in this zone so be careful if you are a really low level. The real area to focus on is the Ruins of Alterac area on the map. I wouldn’t even bother doing anything else but grinding in that area, but if you are up to it, go ahead and follow the rest of the route.
