Where to Farm Pyrite Ore

IMPORTANT: If you're looking to make a lot of gold, you can make thousands easily by reading my favorite gold guide.

This guide is updated for patch 4.3.

Pyrite, along with Elementium and Obsidium, is a new Cataclysm ore. It is a rare spawn of Elementium (just like Titanium was a rare spawn of Saronite). You must be 475 to farm Elementium Ore but you must be 525 to farm Pyrite Ore. Don’t expect to go out and collect loads of Pyrite once you hit 525. For starters, as stated above, it’s a rare node spawn and secondly, this ore will be farmed a lot since it is the high end ore of the newest expansion.

Where to Mine Pyrite in Deepholm

Deepholm: Levels 82-83

Follow the lines drawn on the map and be sure to go into caves that you run by. This zone is loaded with Elementium so you should have good luck finding Pyrite (assuming there aren’t a lot of other people farming it at the same time as you are).

Where to Mine Pyrite in Twilight Highlands

Twilight Highlands: Levels 84-85

Twilight Highlands is a good zone to farm Elementium in and is therefore a good zone to find Pyrite Ore in. Follow the lines shown on the map and you’ll be running (flying) the best route in the zone.

Where to Find Pyrite in Other Zones

Remember, where you find Elementium you will likely find Pyrite. You can also find Pyrite in Uldum.
