Don’t spend hours flying around Azeroth wondering where to find the new herbs, leather, and ore in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm when you can find all the info you need right here on Ten Ton Hammer. We’ve compiled a complete list of all the new gathering profession resources by zone, along with an ever-expanding list of tips on the best locations to find them.
Below you'll find complete reference charts for Herbalism, Mining, and Skinning, and don't forget to check out our Profession portal for complete guides to each of the primary and secondary professions in the game, including the all new Archaeology profession!
Herb Gathering in Cataclysm
- Both Azshara's Veil and Whiptail
can also be found in Tol Barad along with the overland zones listed above.
Thanks to the numerous dailies found in Tol Barad, this might be a
better option for gathering either once you've leveled beyond the other
Mining in Cataclysm
- Rich Pyrite Deposits are
currently only found in Tol Barad. If you're wondering why it isn't
listed in the other overland zones above, that's the main reason. While
the rich deposits will yield more ore per node, due to the relative
rarity you may be better off sticking to Uldum and Twilight Highlands
for the normal deposits.
- Rich Elementium Veins can also be found in Tol Barad along with the other zones listed above.
Skinning in Cataclysm
- As is usually the case, skinners have it just about the easiest of all gathering professions in Cataclysm. Not only can Savage Leather (and Savage Leather Scraps) be found in all overland zones, it can also be skinned from mobs in many of the new dungeons as well.
- Just like Arctic Fur in Wrath of the Lich King, Pristine Hides
can be found on any skinnable mob, though so far they are also
incredibly rare. The good news is that only a handful of recipes
require them, and you will also be able to trade 10 Heavy Savage Leather for a hide in Twilight Highlands from the faction vendors there. The bad news is that also means these sell for a fraction of the price of other Cataclysm mats on the AH as a result.
