Here is The Noob School’s Iron Mining Guide. You will find my top picks for mining iron below.

Where to Mine Iron in Feralas

Feralas: Levels 35-40

Feralas is an excellent zone to collect Iron Ore. You can do huge loops of the whole zone by following the lines outlined on the map. Or if you choose you can do loops of the northern area outlined on the map or loops of the southern area.

Where to Mine Iron in Western Plaguelands

Western Plaguelands: Levels 35-40

You’ll get a decent amount of Iron Ore when you stick to the route in this zone. Stay out of the northern area toward Hearthglen and keep out of the middle section of the map too.

Where to Mine Iron in The Cape of Stranglethorn

The Cape of Stranglethorn: Levels 30-35

Farming for Iron Ore is a bit more complicated than farming in the other zones, but I’ve listed it in this guide because it’s still a good place to collect the ore. Keep close to the lines on the map and avoid the northern section of the zone and you should find a good amount of Iron.
