Where to Farm Copper Ore Alliance
This guide is updated for patch 4.3.
Here are the Noob School’s top places to mine copper in Alliance Territory. If your character is a very low level check the levels of each zone before attempting to mine there.
Where to Mine Copper in Azuremyst Isle
Azuremyst Isle: Levels 1-10
Azuremyst Isle is the starting area for the Draenei and has a few good spots to mine copper. Start south of Azure Watch and follow the path east where it wraps around and then heads back north. Follow the path north, then west along the mountain ridge until it comes to the path. Follow the path north and go into Stillpine Hold (if you can handle the enemies), come out of the cave and loop around the outside of the mountains around Stillpine Hold. Head south back down the path and follow it around the lake (west and south) and then back toward Azure Watch to the east and then repeat the route.
Where to Mine Copper in Dun Morogh
Dun Morogh: Levels 1-10
Dun Morogh is an easy starting area to hit up for Copper Ore. This place is really easy to farm and there are lots of nodes in the mountains throughout the whole zone. Be sure to check out the Quarry circled on the map because it’s a good spot to hit up.
Where to Mine Copper in Elwynn Forest
Elwynn Forest: Levels 1-10
Elwynn Forest is the starting area for Humans. Be sure to enter the caves you pass by and collect ore in them, otherwise just stick to the basic route shown on the map.
Where to Mine Copper in Bloodmyst Isle
Bloodmyst Isle: Levels 10-18
Bloodmyst Isle is the next area Draenei head to after leaving Azuremyst Isle. There are a lot of places to get ore but this mining path represents the best one I’ve found. Start at Blood Watch and head south along the path, then west along the mountain ridge to the Vector Coil area. From there head north and up into the spider area where it hooks to a dead end, turn around and then east toward Axxarien. From Axxarien head south on the route back to Blood Watch. The next run instead of going up toward the spider area, take the path east around the mountains on the way to Axxarien.
Where to Mine Copper in Darkshore
Darkshore: Levels 10-20
Darkshore is the next area Night Elves are sent to after they complete the quests in their beginning area. I don’t list Darnassus in this guide because it’s really not that great for mining and you are better off waiting until Darkshore if you are a low level character or going somewhere else if you are a higher level.
