Here are some of the best places to mine Fel Iron in World of Warcraft.

Where to Mine Fel Iron in Hellfire Peninsula

Hellfire Peninsula: Levels 58-63

Hellfire Peninsula is probably the best and only area you will need to go to mine Fel Iron. The route I recommend is extremely large and there are very high densities of mines all across the zone. The area surrounding Hellfire Citadel in the center of the map is a very good spot, you could just run a loop through them while grinding and not run out of Fel Iron Deposits to mine. Be careful when going through Fallen Sky Ridge in the northwest because it is full of level 63 elite giants. If you are low 60′s stay to the eastern part of this zone and if you’re 64 or so do whichever part of the map you prefer. The key to mining Fel Iron in Hellfire Peninsula is to pick a section of the route above and find an area that works for you that isn’t crowded or over farmed on your server. One of the least farmed areas is the Void Ridge to the east of Zeth’Gor. While mining Fel Iron there you can kill the voidwalkers and gather Motes of Shadow to make Primal Shadows and get some extra cash on the auction house.

Where to Mine Fel Iron in Terokkar Forest

Terokkar Forest: Levels 62-71

Terokkar forest has a couple of good ridges to mine the most noticeable is the one south of Allerian Stronghold. Be careful it is infested by spiders, kill them if you want and gather Netherweb Spider Silk, which is in high demand for professions such as Tailoring. The path that leads north out of Tuurem is also a decent area for Fel Iron. This zone will be typically be less farmed than Hellfire Peninsula because of the lack of density along the mining route but can still serve as a good place to mine Fel Iron.

Where to Mine Fel Iron in Zangarmarsh

Zangarmarsh: Levels 60-64

Zangarmarsh is a pretty good area to get Fel Iron. The key points of this zone along the southern mountain ridge are Quagg Ridge, the cave southwest of Umbrafen Village (Funggor Cavern), and the area around The Spawning Glen. The key points of the northern mountain ridge are The Dead Mire, the ridge directly north above Coilfang Reservoir, the entire northern ridge west of Orebor Harborage, and the island in the northwest that is the Ango’rosh Stronghold. Routes can also be ran through the lakes if you enjoy swimming, I don’t prefer it.
